  1. Well obviously the 990X is more expensive right? I mean the cpu alone costs $675 more than the 2600K costs.

    I would go with the 2600K because it's a lot cheaper.
    You don't need 16GB of ram, even 8GB is more than you'll use.
    You don't need a 1000w psu either and the OCZ REvoDrive has terrible reviews and the price is outrageous, I would just get a nice SSD instead.
  2. Reading and assuming 'Gaming' on a single HD 6970 then duh the P67 is the better option.

    However, in a prior (3 duplicate posts) you've stated "thanks guys, i am using after effects and 3d max and RealFlow for big time animation and tv making."

    Again, those Apps are core hungry, so 4 core vs 6 vs 12 core... If you don't mind several days to render then none of this matters. The super fast PCIe SSD does little to aide the render.

    So REALLY what's the use purpose of the build? Otherwise these posts of yours are chatter where replies assuming Gaming...

  6. Well,

    I just bulid a workstation for a friend cost about 6832$

    The RevoDrive X2 had some work to get it to run but its the fastest ssd on earth and its worth the hassle.

    So i dont have that money to build one for me..
    my main goal is work as i said before i am using after effects and 3d max and RealFlow for big time animation and tv making."

    thank you all for help, i have a idea now about what i am going to get.
    and will post for the final soon.

    Thanks guys for help, please let me know if ok
  8. Looks really nice now, but you don't need that memory, regular 1.5v 1600mhz memory is all you need.

    What's the total?
  9. Thanks , total 1714$
    But i still have a Q?
    P8P67 DELUXE or Maximus IV Extreme?
  10. Can't help you there, I'm a "green" guy and I prefer low priced, low power mobo's without all the bells and whistles, just the basics that I need.

  12. great stuff jaquith., thanks
    i guess i should go ahead and get it done.

    thank you all guys.. i will update soon.
  13. Honestly, all the bells and whistles in the world won't do a ton for performance. I suggest you fill out the Build Advice form I linked above if you want the best build for your buck. But it's up to you.

    Your build is fine. But you're throwing $100 out the window on that fancy RAM when G.Skill Snipers (1600CL9) will perform 99% as well.

    Also, the H70 isn't any better than the Noctua DH something air cooler, but requires more maintenance. The H70 isn't a ton better than a $30 Hyper 212+ (which is amazing, btw).

    Also, the HX850 will do very well and the ASUS P67 Pro is enough. If you REALLY care about performance, you'd wait for Z68 with a Lucid Hydrix chip so you could use Quicksync in your video encoding.
  14. thanks for the advies dalauder, but already placed the order and it should be here in 5 days.
  15. In that case, your build will be great and perform very well. Have fun.
  16. Hello,
    So all working and OC at 4.6 stable

    here is some of my issues,

    *OC at 5.0 stable but temp is 72c to 82c on load is that too hot?
    * can i OC AMD Radeon™ HD 6970? any idea ?
    * it take long time to boot to windows ?
    * Hydro Series H70 High air direction in or out the case?

    i have a screen shot but how to upload it here?
    thank you
  17. *OC at 5.0 stable but temp is 72c to 82c on load is that too hot?
    Hot is anything above 80C, the H70 fans need cooler air, see below, or have a side fan blowing infront of rad/fan. High 60's to mid 70's is where you want to be.

    Q - What's your Vcore?

    * can i OC AMD Radeon™ HD 6970? any idea ?
    MSI Afterburner - http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/download.htm

    * it take long time to boot to windows ?
    If you changed AHCI and IDE values in BIOS then verify all Start values are 0 - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976

    * Hydro Series H70 High air direction in or out the case?
    Ideally Into the case
    Disable Fan Control in BIOS or use a different, full power, Fan Header. You do NOT want the BIOS to control the pump speed.
  18. thanks alot jaquith, you been a great help.

    * my Vcore is 1.400 v
    * dram 1.65v memory runs at 1066.8 (2133) 9-11-9-28-2T

    * H70 confuses me a bit as with Lian Li 2000f case i have 3 (140) fans at front blowing cool air and 2 (140) at back Sucking out hot air, so i removed one fan from the back and placed the H70. So one fan only Sucking out hot air.!
    and i think that is not good?

    * I pluged the 2 H70 fans on the MB one at CPU fan runing at 1917 rpm at all time.
    and 2 fan at OPT runing at 1800 rpm and the pump at Power fan Runing at 1400.
  19. I assume Q-Fan is disabled but 1400 is correct, and looking at your case http://lian-li.com/v2/tw/product/upload/image/pc-x2000f/flyer.html have the air blow out the rear. The Vcore is actually good for 5GHz.

    Otherwise I assume both H70 fans are blowing in the same direction. Try pulling the side panel off and compare the temps. Otherwise make certain the pump is evenly and properly tensioned to the CPU. After that thermal paste like arctic silver 5, run the push/pull fans at high e.g. Chassis Fan Profile -> Turbo.

    H70 http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1596366
  20. *now i am runing 4.8GHZ at 1.45v CPU and temp Idel is 36c and 77.5 on load.

    *Q-Fan is disabled

    * H70 fans are blowing in the same direction into the case ( is that ok?)

    * pump is seated properly (tight) onto CPU
  21. The H70 or any of the Corsair pump setups have slightly higher idle temps. The Vcore is still within range, and if you're only gaming you can opt to turn-off Hyper-Threading and lowering the Vcore.

    What about the H70 Fans and have you tried the fans at full speed?

    If they're blowing slow and not at full then you'll never obtain lower temps. In my everyday rigs I have the H50's which are aren't close to the H70's cooling capabilities, but I'm not using stock fans and their actually connected to a fan controller.
