Yes, i am going to cram this in there

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hello guys,
Me and my step dad have a small hobby of building custom rigs then selling them for reasonable profit. This current rig im hopefully going to sell will net me aroung 900 to 925$ so obviously im going to build a new rig. But im sick of buying a nice fancy case and having no problems at all fitting all my stuff in there and doing basically no work when building the computer. So i decided to have a little fun with this next build, i will be putting a CM 212+, HD69(70)50, 3x Sprintpoint F3's RAID 0, 8gb DDR3, DVD Drive, and an antec Tp 650 into this case:

Before i put my rig on the market i have to wait until thursday for my current CM 212+ to come in, then its off to CL. After that if i sell it these are the parts im thinking of getting:
GFX Card (visiontek is SOOOOOOO sexy)


RAM

Case

HDD's (3 of them)

Mobo

PSU

CPU (hopefully it will UL to a quad)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103846
And im buying the 212+ from another site cuz its 12$ cheaper

And whatever DVD drive has free shipping the day i order.
Thoughts, questions, concerns? Obviously i will be modding the case to fit everything and i will be purchasing a dual 5.25 to 3 3.5 drive adapter so im cheating a little.

I think overall everything looks perfectly fine. But why are you getting a dual core? why not get a quad instead, get the athlon x4... it'll look a bit more appealing. I think 2 hdd's in raid would seem better too.

I am happy with my 212+! Price / performance ratio wise it's one of the best air coolers on the market.

What about an SSD and a spinpoint ?
And why 8 gb ?
Gaming = 3gb is enough, 4gb to make it dual channel.

RAM choice = baaddd genericccc and overpriced and for $10 less you could get some better 1600Mhz RAM
I'd just like to point that out

Another problem is the mobo... don't unlock on it, unlocking raises the TDP significantly and that board is known to fail on high TDP processors (VRM fail, and catastrophically too i.e. fire & light)
There are better mobos for the price. This one is 890FX chipset, better VRM design, and AM3+ support for the same price.... actually if I'm not mistaken it's $5 lower.
You will need a full ATX but ATX is better anyways for several reasons including VRM design, expandability, and cost-effectiveness. Here is a good ATX case for the same $40 shipped price after promo

Get the HDDs here at Superbiiz - save $15 for all 3

Oh and the GPU is

For sho. The 212+ is amazing. Keeps my 555 @ 4 GHz as cool as a bug. Max temps are sitting at 40C after a linx pack.

Good input but the whole reason for me doing this is to ONLY USE mATX, that RAM is better but also out of my price range, plus i have never had problems with my Gskill before. As for the mobo i have heard nothing bad about it, but if you find a board that does x8/x8 Xfire and can unlock plus has an 8 + 2 power phase with DDR3 2133 support for 129$ or less ill take it, AM3+ is unimportant to me. As for the HDD's good find saves me 15$ thanks alot, but the link to the graphics card is dead, but i REALLY want a visiontek HD6950 because visiontek has the sexiest looking cards EVER and i want to unlock it to an HD6970.
