This is my FIRST custom build in over ten years, and I wanted to try and design it for MAJOR overclocking ability cuz I work ALOT on processing sudio and video, uncompressed - which take A LONG time I want to speed up the processing time as much as possible - so here's my system;
BFG 1000watt power supply
Thermaltake Armor+ LCS VH600LBWS Liquid Cooled Case w/ 230mm side fan
ASUS M4A89TD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom II x6 1090T 3.2Ghz
16GB OCZ Reaper Edition DDR3 1333
OCZ Agility 2 OCZSSD2-2AGTE60G - System Drive
60GB SSD - OCZ Vertez turbo MLC - HDD Boost with 1TB WD Caviar 6Gb/s HD
128GB SSD - Kingston V Series (Pro Audio or video Files currently being worked on)
2x 1TB western Digital Caviar 7200RPM 64MB SATA3 6Gb/s (Primary storage of all audio & video projects currently being worked on)
SAMSUNG SATA 22X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe
Sony Light Scribe 22x SATA DVD Burner
Pioneer IDE CD/DVD Burner LabelFlash
SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100282VXSR Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5
32” 1080p HDTV main monitor
2 19” split monitors on each side of the 32” primary screen for different operations
1 x Tripp Lite SMART1500LCD Smart Pro Digital 1500 VA 900 Watts 8 Outlets Line Interactive UPS w/ LCD display
IOGEAR GKM561R Black 2.4GHz Wireless HTPC Multimedia Keyboard with Laser Trackball and Scroll Wheel
Rosewill RC-217 SATA II 4 Port RAID 0/1/5/10 PCI RAID Card
COOLMAX CMF-1425-GN 140mm Case Fan x2 (For hard drives)
Rosewill RFA-120-RL 120mm 4 Red LEDs LED Case Fan x3 (one at the bottom of the case one at the top, 1 for rear)
1 rear exhaust fan in the bottom PCi slot
ALL of my fans, except for the 230mm fan have MOLEX connectors absolutly NO 3-pin or 4-pin connectors that would typically connect to the MOBo or a fan controller.
My QUESTION: Is there a way to, 1. control the speed of these fans, 2. Have temperature sensors to help in the controlling of this fan
Forv I tend to do ALOT of Overclocking when i am processing audio or video - However there are times when i need to do so recording, using microphones in the same room as my computer, so I would like to be able to turn the fans down as far as possible, or possibly even off since I have the liquid cooling system and obviously would NOT be overclocking at the time of recording
1) BFG power supply?
2) You won't be able to pull more than 900 watts because of UPS, so why have a 1000 watt P.S.?
3) Why so many CD/DVD drives? And of mixed make and model....no Blu-Ray?
4) Which Armor case?
5) Will the video be processed solely by the CPU?
