Thanks alot More about : intel motherboard Someone Somewhere a b 4 Gaming a c 236 V Motherboard a b å Intel May 19, 2013 4:06:41 AM First of all, no way you can get to 5GHz stable, and 1.8V is pretty much instantaneous CPU smoke. 4.5GHz is a more reasonable target, and stay below about 1.3V. Little point in closed loop cooling - either go for a real custom loop, or stick with a decent air cooler - they are cheaper and often perform the same or better. DDR3-2133 is a waste of money. There's no advantage over DDR3-1600. Caviar blacks are overpriced. Get a blue or barracuda. Also, 500GB? If he's rendering get at least a TB or two. Unless you REALLY need CUDA, go for a 7970. Or two. Get about 500W for a single GPU, or 750W if CF/SLI. m 0 l Someone Somewhere a b 4 Gaming a c 236 V Motherboard a b å Intel May 19, 2013 4:18:01 AM PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($229.99 @ Microcenter) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler ($69.99 @ NCIX US) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($114.99 @ NCIX US) Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($204.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($229.99 @ NCIX US) Storage: Toshiba 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($89.99 @ Microcenter) Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card ($399.99 @ Newegg) Case: NZXT Phantom (Black/Green) ATX Full Tower Case ($89.99 @ Newegg) Power Supply: Corsair Enthusiast 750W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($99.99 @ Newegg) Optical Drive: Asus BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS Blu-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer ($49.99 @ Newegg) Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) ($134.98 @ Outlet PC) Other: LOGISYS Computer ML12WT LED Super Bright Sunlight Stick (White) ($6.99) Total: $1721.87 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
