More about basically final build
  1. hello
    your build looks pretty good. the power supply is a bit overkill but you can always re use it in the future when upgrading so its not a bad investment
    also ur missing windows 7 64 bit oem, I would pick a better cpu cooler

    as for overclocking i have that board and it has dummy overclock settings that will let you change the turbo boost frequency from 4.0ghz all the way to 4.8ghz, if you want to go higher you have to do the overclocking manually (im using 2550k)
  2. Everything looks decent. Good build. Everything works well together, but what's the purpose of the build? Are you targeting a certain price?
  3. I'd get the Z77 version of that mobo and a 3570K instead of the 2500K (it gets released Sunday, similar price, and slightly better performance since you don't plan a large overclock).

    Might want to download the mobo manual to see which slots the ram goes in and make sure your ram isn't so tall it interferes with the CPU cooler (Corsair makes low profile ram if needed).
  4. Oh well I am not trying to go over 1000, so would upgrading to a 3507k and z77 cost more? and no specific target, just below 1000. I already got microsoft 7 ultimate.
  5. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.864966

    Would you guys reccomend my build or THIS BUILD UP HERE with my same 7850?
  6. Z77 boards with similar features to the Z68s are going to cost more because they're the latest and greatest.

    You can use the 3570K in that Z68 gen 3 board and because it's a gen 3 you'll get the benefit of the PCIe 3 controller on the Ivy Bridge processor. On the other hand, that 2500K may drop in price after Sunday, though giving you more available cash to put toward your video card.

    I'm curious to see how the pricing will change on these processors.
  7. I will probably wait if it drops on sunday then, since newegg doesnt ship on weekends. Are you guys sure they drop sunday?
  8. z77 Extreme4 is $13 more and the CPU should be identically priced (unless you can catch the 2500K on sale - won't know til the new ones go on sale).
  9. oh so get the z77 extreme 4? why does everyone reccomend the ex 3 lol
  10. the z77 is actually a hundred dollars more!

    The extreme 3 is a good board based on the z68 chipset (not sure if there is an extreme 3 z77 model). It is a tried and tested board and hence can be recommended with confidence. However, it is an older model now.

    You're probably looking at the extreme 4 with the lga 2011 socket. Check out the one with the lga 1155.
  13. Alvine - i have the asrock gen 3 extre 4, does it have this dummy controller to overclock? i haven't had the computer long and have been busy at work (audit season). so i haven't had time to play around.... whats the controller called?
