That's awesome! You got quite the deal.
Honestly I would prefer to be on Intel but I'm the kind of person who keeps their parts for LONG time and upgrades one piece at a time... long term... Been stuck on AMD for years lol. But it's not all bad I guess. Upgrading to Intel board and cpu all at once is just too much for me for now. I only just recently upgraded to DDR3 when I got this new board haha.
So with all those extra 620's... are you going to put them on some gpu's?

I sold my spare 620 to a friend of mine. That Best Buy isn't far and is in a po-dunk little town where PC parts don't move too well. They had a EVGA GTX560 SC 2GB for $125, I might go check to see if that's still around, and there were 2 620's left last time I was there. Also they have this "Rocketfish CPU Cooler" and it's just a rebranded CoolerMaster TX3, for only $12 so I bought two of those, and they had Antec Formula 7 for $7 a tube so I bought three of those, lol. I cleaned up!

I just got my 920 in yesterday. It actually has a sticker on the box that says, "socket 2011 ready". I sent an email to Antec requesting a bracket thinking it was an older unit i was getting a few days ago. Can't wait to get all the other parts and install this.

thanks - it looks like maybe i give Gigabyte another shot - with that model - only thing is looks smaller than the normal size ATX - is that the standard ATX board ?

this board for the i7 chip - what socket would this be considered - socket 1155 ?


the 920 brackets i have should fit with this board also - ? just seems a bit strange the bracket - back plate i would need to use on intel board - that i have with the 920 cooler -

i have to double check -


now if i would get the Gigabyte board - i7 chip - what would be good memory which i can use with the build in intel profile so i can just pick that profile in the bios and be done with the memory

i want a 16 gig kit - two sticks - i just want it to work at rated speed when installed - then pick the profile and be done -

any suggestions with brand etc, - dont want a issue where its not compatible -

thanks

First choose your motherboard, then based on that, choose your RAM.
I suggest:
G skills, Corsair, Samsung as brands to look at.

Also 1600mhz is more than enough for rated speed @ CAS 9.
Anything below CAS 9 becomes expensive and above 1600 too. More so, you won't really notice the difference wink.gif

thanks - i will do that - having a hard time picking a board - i am a bit confused with these socket numbers - i was under the impression that the i7 3rd gen 3770K is a LGA 1155 - but i also see a LGA 2011

Which socket Board do i need to be looking for - reading new egg reviews is scary now even with the Gigabyte board UD5 i think
post #2786 of 6068
If you get the 3770k you need socket 1155. For RAM just get something with an XMP profile. Crucial makes good RAM too.

Z77 board on LGA1155 - look aat a few - as I said before, asus, asrock are good board hardware wise.
The decision etc is up to you, and your own research wink.gif

sorry, I was wrong

the 4 pin connector of antec 920 don't serves only for the fans, but it serves also for the pump. if this cable is not connected, the pump is switched off

Now I connected the fans directly on mobo, on cpu fan connector, and the pump of antec on chassis fan connector

but still can not detect the rpm of the pump (it's possible only with chill control V) ..

the mobo is a asus p8z77-i deluxe

I try to set in bios chassis fan in all possibile methods

-ignore
-monitor - qfan off
-monitor - qfan on

aida64, hwinfo64, hwmonitor, and also speedfan, don't read the rpm of pump..

I'm missing something? thinking.gif

I can only see it with chill control V (I have h2o 920), other sw do not see

Using Open Hardware Monitor (free program looks just like cpuid hwmonitor) and yes I edited the tags. My pump is plugged into one of my motherboard fan headers...
Warning: Pic of OpenHWMon! (Click to show)

Don't know why but all programs I've used have problems reading my 2nd gpu sometimes (AMD control center, AfterBurner, monitor programs etc...) and I'm not sure if that's normal or not. Sometimes it gets read sometimes not.
