Tadah....first build...any thoughts? Tags: Homebuilt Systems Last response: August 23, 2010 1:51 PM in Systems Share kartoga August 23, 2010 2:16:58 AM Everything seems ok. i7 930 (stock HSF) ASUS P6X58D-E 6GB Corsair RAM 1TB Seagate SATA/32MB Cache/7200 Sappphire 5770 OCZ 700W PSU Cool Master 310 case, w/on 120mm fan in rear. Windows 7, 64 bit of course Generic wireless nic, KB, Mouse Had it running all day, did some FutureMark benches and stresses....16K 3DMark, 7K Vantage (these look about average for a system non-OC). Idle temps 38 - 40. loaded 60 - 65. Everything seems pretty stable and cool so far. Next going to StarCraft II and maybe in a month start some OC, those with these components I don't expect to get too far, e.g., stock mount, CL9/1600 on the corsair, but who knows?
