Does this setup work? I am a first time builder and I was wondering if all of my parts fit in the case.

Can anyone answer if my setup will work, with the dimensions and everything.

  1. Yes, all the pieces in your setup will work with each other and fit into the case you chose.
  2. What is the reasoning for:
    Sound card?
    32GB RAM?
    $200 for the case?

    What will this be used for? I see a lot of expensive parts.


    It will work, but....
  3. Sound Card: I am an audiophile and I love music, I am using this sound card for speakers that I own.
    32gb ram:I will be setting up a 16 gb ram disk, 4 gb to minecraft and 4 gb to a minecraft server, 8gb to system and games.
    Case: I would like a case that is easy to open and has many sockets for fans.
    I will be using this system for gaming and video recording and editing. I am making a high end system that will last for a very long time. If you think another part would be better than ones I have listed, please tell me! My total budget must be below $3000. Also, I am interested in Nvidia surround and I was wondering if my two gpus can handle 3 displays(each 1080p) running modest games like Dishonored or Bioshock Infinite at high settings. Again, any edits to my setup will be helpful!

    Sounds resonable. And yes the two 770 can handle 3*1080p display on high demanding games. I just think that using LGA1150 platform is more sufficient at this point : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/13RUI
  5. Thanks for the input :D! I was wondering which monitor should I choose: the Asus PA248q, the APC i2767fh, or the Benq XL2411T? I will be going to use three monitors for surround.
  6. I'd take the Asus monitors, still. Not just high quality but it's also pre-calibrated, with usb3.0 ports ( 12 usb3.0 ports just from those monitors will blown your mind lol ). The BenQ ones win in 3D support if you're interested ( yet I wouldn't recommend playing in 3D for a long time, bad for eyes, plus you might need a 3rd 770 for that 3D vision setup ). As for AOC ones : not many reviews found, so I just can't make any comment on it.

    I would like some input and some advice to this setup, but, I am sticking to my sandybridge cpu because it OCs better...

    Also, I am not sure if my case, the Thermaltake Armor Revo Snow, comes with fans, if so, which ones?
  9. Yes it's easier to OC on Sandy than Ivy, but then you have to OC the sandy 2500k by a few hundreds mhz before it reachs the level of a stock 3570k, making 3570k the better choice in the end.

    I'd pick the 3570k and a pair of GTX770 from MSI instead, due to lower temp and quieter. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/15TSO

    Any idea about the fans?
  11. Yes it does come with pre-installed fans : http://www.thermaltake.com/products-model_Specification.aspx?id=C_00001869

    Front, top and side : 1 200mm fan for each of those locations
    Rear : 1 140mm fan

    More than enough to cool down any system if you ask me.
