Build for 2012-2013 Tags: New Build Systems Last response: December 9, 2012 11:39 PM in Systems Share gnexia December 9, 2012 4:34:42 PM Hey all I would like some input on this build that I am planning CPU Intel Core i7-3770 Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz mobo: ASUS P8Z77-V LX LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard cd/dvd drive ASUS Internal 24X SATA Optical Drive DRW-24B3ST/BLK/G (Black) memory G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) Ripjaws X Series DDR3 1333MHz (PC3-10666) 240-Pin. Desktop Memory F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL CPU COOLER Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler PSU Corsair Enthusiast Series 850-Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply GPU X2 EVGA GeForce GTX 660Ti SUPERCLOCKED 2048MB GDDR5 HDD Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM TOWER NZXT Phantom 410 Mid Tower More about : build 2012 2013 g-unit1111 December 9, 2012 10:11:08 PM What's the budget and primary use? If it's gaming ditch the H100 and get a Noctua D14. Get the low profile Ares RAM instead of the Ripjaw X. For CPU get the 3570K, no need for the 3770 as you can't overclock it. The difference will allow you to add a good SSD to the build. And then instead of dual 660TIs, get a single 670 or a 7970 GHz edition. Anonymous December 9, 2012 10:17:29 PM Real close to my build except for the graphics card. I would go with faster ram 1600 or better. You'll love the phantom tower, fill all your fan slots for the best cooling. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

The only thing is that anything above 1600 RAM doesn't really benefit you because on default settings the motherboard runs the RAM at the lowest speeds and timings that it can handle.
