Hello everyone this is my first post and also my first new build. I already have purchased most parts but wanted you guys opinions and guidance before starting assembly.
I will be using it mostly for video editing, transcoding and encoding and occasional gaming.
CASE : Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced
PROCESSOR: I7 3770K
MEMORY: Corsair Vengence 1600 ddr3 32gb
MOTHERBOARD: Asrock z77 pro4
CPU COOLER: Corsair H70
POWER SUPPLY: Thermaltake TPG 750M
SSD: 250GB Samsung 840 Series 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD)
HDD: 4 x Seagate ST2000DM001 Barracuda 7200 rpm 2tb sata (8TB total)
GRAPHICS CARD: I need some help with this one ????
Am I missing any parts?
Also the H70 has paste applied, is it better to use that paste or remove and apply higher quality paste?
Thanks Big Troll, The reason I went with the motherboard I selected is it has 4 sata3 6gb/s so I figured I could connect the ssd to one and 3 hard drives to the others. Also I hear what you are saying about the hard drives but I thought windows had an issue with hard drives over 2tb. I keep ALOT of movies for streaming on my pc so thats why I need the storage. I might look into a nas sometime in the future.
After reading a little bit more I want to makes sure I am correct. I am going to use the ssd as my boot drive so does that mean using the 4tb drives for strictly data is not a issue with windows 7 64 bit?
Also would you recommend connecting the fans to the motherboard, psu, or buy a seperate fan controller?
-wouldnt get x79 if you arent getting the 6 core. the i7 3770k performs a fair bit better than the 3820
-the odds of you using more thn the standard 6 drives is near zero for most users. and if you are, you are doing it wrong since by then a raid controller is ncessary
-when you upgrade, you end up costing yourself another 600 dollars for a 10% boost in performance (ivy bridge 2011 is basically ivy bridge now with more cores)
-you will want 4 dimms for x79 plaforms if you are to get it
-the 840 non pro is crap
