About to buy my new rig, just doing a final compatibility check to make sure everything will work together and is a good deal all around thanks! Oh and if anyone can think of anything im missing! besides a mouse, keyboard and speakers i got those.
(listed links as well as the actual product info for easy referance!)
Your motherboard, a socket 1366 x58 chipset is incompatible with a LGA2011 cpu. My personal suggestion for a replacement is the ASRock X79 EXTREME4-M http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . yes, it's microAtx, which is unfortunate, but packs more of a punch in terms of memory overclocking and capacity, and PCIe 3.0 support.
motherboard not compatible with cpu you need a socket 2011 for that cpu i would limit it to 8 gb ram unless doing heavy encoding etc games just dont use it 5 gb max in bf3 the cm 212 hsf comes with tim aswell so u dont need the arctic silver, personally 2600k would be fine
since your going extreme go for it. just sadly it would have been better if you go with i7 3930K since well it's just what I think that the i7 3820 is not that worth it as there are other better quad cores like the i7 2600K but if you really must get the lga2011
go with asrock x79extreme4 like what the above said. it's a great choice or if your like me who love msi products go with msi x79a-gd65 8d (i use them on 3 builds i have and they work wonders) although i can say for my self on my latest build I'm using an asus rog rampage x79(this is a better choice for people with deeper pocket) and performance was awesome.
go with 16gb quad channel kit i do recommend g.skill ripjaws Z 16gb 1600mhz
btw the 3820 you can still overclock it to 4.2ghz or something so there should be no problem with that. the cooler master hyper 212 evo is a great cooler for it's value but if course if you want leet go with noctua nh-d14 cons are it's too big for most cases and ram(ripjaws Z and X and sniper fit this)
btw you were saved by James lol good thing he pointed you out that the mobo you selected is not compatible, nothing is worse than buying everything and finds out your mobo is not compatible lol.
