Thanks alot More about : intel motherboard Someone Somewhere a b 4 Gaming a c 167 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.
