New system build for 2013
Posted 26 September 2012 - 12:47 PM
After upgrading my good old Socket 775 rig for 2012 I'm now thinking of a new build for 2013. I'm already getting the parts. This week I'm gonna order the MoBo. In the next weeks I'm gonna order the CPU and memory, and later, probably in january I will be getting the VGA (quite expensive).
My new build proposal:
Mobo: Asus Rampage IV skt 2011
CPU: Intel Core i7 3960X @ 5.00 GHz (50x100 MHz)
RAM: 32 GB RipJaws 2133 MHz (8x4GB) 9-10-10-30
VGA: ATi HD 7990 6GB @ 1150 / 6600 MHz (OC)
SSD: 2x Crucial M4 240 GB
HDD: 1x Seagate 2TB SATA-3
What are your thoughts?

i'm not a green person when it comes to computer performance: disabled all c states/speedstep, win7 performance power profile, full power 24/7.

MO's will be, lets see, lemmie guess? 7.9?
All OK V, but save some cash and limit yourself to 16Gb MAX, even then, you will never use that

Hey, MO, to say the truth 32GB of RAM wouldnt be luxury, but a real need. Some 3D stress-strain analysis softwares that I use daily consume lots of memory. I also need VMs to run specific software, and running a small VM on a RAM disk is very productive. But maybe I go for 32GB of 1600/1866 MHz memory instead of 16 GB of G.Skill 2133 MHz for almost the same budget.

vlad, with 4 channel ram, lots of lower hz at tighter timings is a win. i'd do it. i mentioned getting higher grade ram and down clocking it because you will have better luck tightening it up, and a bit more room with voltages, etc.
