Gaming + OC build ~1900$

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,
first of all I want to say that I'm for Europe - Poland.
I came to this forum cuz I want a good advice about my new build from ppl that are experienced.
So here is what I'am about to buy:

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K /3.3GHz, 6MB, LGA 1155, BOX/
MOBO: Asus P8P67 PRO Rev.3.0 /intel P67/
RAM: A-Data 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz CL9 Gaming
CPU cooling: Thermalright Silver Arrow Multiplatform Cooler
GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 580 DCII 1536MB DDR5 /384bit/ 2xDVI/mHDMI
HDD: Western Digital Black 1 TB 7200rpm 64MB cache SATA600 &
OCZ Vertex2 E 60GB (285MB/275MB/s)
CASE: Cooler Master Dominator II 692 Lite
PSU: Corsair 850W [CMPSU-850TXEU]

Will that be enough to oc 2500k ~5GHz?
Should I change something?

P.S. About ram, unfortunately I can't buy in my country G.Skill Ripjaws X 2x4GB 1600 at this moment(why 8GB, you ask? Because sometimes I like to open more than 2 game clients.

That is a really strong build. It should serve you well. As for overclocking, I have seen people oc the i5-2500k to 4.8GHz on air. However, pushing it to 5GHz might be tough if you want it to be stable and have good temps. It is possible but you will need to have a cpu from a really good batch. If you watercool your system, you would definitely be able to make it to 5GHz and possibly over due to the increased cooling capacity of the system. Even so, a 4.8GHz overclock is really good and I like your build.

One more question.
Which fans should I buy to get best results for that Case and how many?

I my opinion if your getting all this great gear you might as well upgrade the 2500k to a 2600k. Mark my words you wont regret it!!

Good build.

Things I would change:-

i7 2600K instead of i5 2500K.
Samsung F4 instead of WD Black(only if they're close in price).

BTW you should be fine on any quality PSU of 600W or more, if you don't want to SLI in the future and want to save $$$ then I would suggest to pickup a cheaper PSU. Plus, I think you need better cooling for a 5GHz overclock.

1. i7-2600k is not a big difference in gaming, just not worth it.
2. In shop I'am buying that computer there is no Samsung F4
3. There is only 20$ difference in PSU between 600W and 850W
There is no better air cooling :/ Only way is to buy water cooling but that could cost me another $$
