Hi guys! wave2.gif

I should tell you I don't actually have my Maximus IV Extreme mobo yet. I'm waiting for them to again be available.

I bought my i7-2600K CPU last Wednesday.

I have an AzzA Hurican 2000 case on the way that should be here in the next couple days, along with Windows 7.

I need to order the rest of the bits. At the present time I'm planning on:

Cooler: Noctua NH-D14.

RAM: 8Gb G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3-1600 F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL 2x4Gb 9-9-9-24-2N 1.5V. You can see the sticks are optimized for P67 mobos, and the Maximus IV Extreme is in their Qualified Motherboards List at the bottom of that web page.

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1Tb 7200 RPM 64Mb Cache Sata III 6Gb/s 3.5".

Video Cards: 2 nVidia MSI GTX 580 (N580GTX) Twin Frozr II factory OC'ed 1536mb.

SSD: Corsair P3-128 128Gb CSSD-P3128GB2-BRKT 2.5" SATA III MLC 6Gb/s Performance 3.

Optical Drive: Since they are so cheap, and have various states of unreliability, I'll get one locally (probably from Best Buy), at the very end of the build just before I am ready to turn things on for the first time. That way, if it has a problem, I'll be able to just take it back to the store for a new one. I figure it will only run about $7-$10, at most, more than buying one mail order.

PSU: Corsair Pro AX1200 Series Gold CMPSU-1200AX 1200W.

I presently have two, 22" wide Samsung SyncMaster 226BW displays. I want to add a third, 3D display and am presently thinking of getting the ASUS VG236HE, partially due to it's having a 3 year warranty vs. the others presently on the market.

To run all three displays, one being in 3D, I'm not sure if just the 2 video cards will be enough. Any thoughts?

Of course, I'm planning on a pair of 3D glasses cool.gif, probably nVidia's. ???

If you want to comment on any or my planned build, feel free to do so. Though I've built about 10 computers in my time, the last one I built was in about 1990, so I'm a bit rusty on this and specs -- I've had to do a LOT of reading over the last couple weeks since I decided to go this direction.

Thx!

Tim

I was able to run Prime and LinX at 5.4 @ 1.48v, but voltage was too high for my taste.
I'm rock-stable 24/7 at 5.1 @ 1.42v BIOS (1.44 in CPU-Z)..
And I'm now 24/7 at 4.9 @ 1.36v to be sure there is no long term degradation. smile.gif

-Intel PLL Overvoltage Auto
-LLC Max
-VRM Frequency change to 350
-Phase Control change to extreme
-Duty Control change to extreme
-RAM manual timings
-HT ON

Everything else is at auto.

At 4.9, not a single BSOD/crash/freeze/bug after 40 hours playing Darksiders to the end, over 50 hours playing Borderlands, 2 or 3 hours of BBC2, and almost done with Risen (35 hours) since I installed my Maximus + I7 2600K. smile.gif

On the internet, for 10 REALLY VOCAL whiners, you have 1000 satisifed customers that don't post.

Tunapiano,

I think that Guru3d link in your first post points to the wrong mobo.
