Oh yeah, definitely. I was just talking about desktops though. I think the most underclocking does happen nowadays in laptops.

The only people who underclock nowadays are PC manufacturers tryint to hit a specific power target or to use the stock cooler without it being noisy (using a low RPM fan, or voltage limiting it). There's no real point if you're building the computer yourself, as the coolers you can get are so quiet.

I don't know if you'll be able to get 100-200Mhz out of that card, but you should be okay if you can get there.

You need to connect the PSU to the graphics card via one 6 pin connectors.

By PSI do you mean PCIe?

Not all games that are on windows are on linux, but a lot of them are. Linux has a ton of great word processing programs, and you would be able to find something right for you. Ubuntu is a great place to start, and it;'s really easy to install. The only downside is that drivers usually come out late for linux, and as I said not all programs on windows are on linux.

  • 80 months ago

Sweet jesus, why do you need that much RAM? 32GB should be plenty. If you need more than that, you shouldn't be using Haswell. X79 is much more for workstation stuff. IMO if you really, really need even 32GB you should get X79. Much more bandwidth on the memory controller, and support for quad channel memory.

Haswell is cooler if you're not OC'ing, however if you're going to do some heavy overclocking it does heat up quite a bit. Lol, why did this turn into a downvote fest?

Get Haswell, it's not that much more expensive, and you might as well get the current platform. 1155 is a dead socket, so no upgrades.

Get the unlocked version of that processor, no reason not to (especially because you're already getting an unlocked motherboard). As far as the motherboard itself goes, don't get the extreme4, the Z77 version of that board was plauged with problems, and the Hero has much better overall quality.

What are you using this build for?

Looks good, but why Sandforce controller? Seems like there are newer options out there, (didn't Marvell have a new flashy flash controller?) also, is it bootable? It doesn't say so, so I will assume no.

All PCIe SSDs are so expensive, I hope this one will be a more affordable option...though Asus often demands a premium price for their high end products, and this is pretty damn high end.

It has great airflow, important in SLI because the video cards generate so much heat. The 210 imo doesn't have enough room to facilitate proper airflow with an SLI setup.

Based on the specs you provided alone, for a single card setup, an 850W with an 80+ Gold Efficiency will be more than enough. Link to the specific PSU? PSUs can be finnicky, and you don't want to get one with bad reviews, or serious problems. There's a thread on EggXpert with a list of PSUs, and what the "eggxperts" think of them. It's extremely informative, and worth checking out.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "RAID 0 worth it?"

I have a RAID 0 Array with two Intel 520 Series SSDs, IT IS SO FREAKIN FAST!I do also have a 3TB Baracuda drive for most of my games and data (and a backup of the array),but the RAID array hasn't had any problems, and nearly maxes out the 6GBit SATA connection. As gseyffert says, RAID stripes half the data across each disk, so each one only has half the data, which like he also said, would increase their lifetime. That'spretty much a moot point though, because SSDs will outlive your computer by quite a bit.

Build? Try resetting BIOS, and booting without your HD. If you get to the screen that says boot disk missing, there's most likely a problem with the install. Format the disk and try again

8350 has so much more overclocking overhead than the 8320, if you're doing a mild OC it's fine, but for real overclocking the 8320 just doesn't cut it. Seems like a fine choice for this build though, it looks good!

Silverstone is also a good brand, there are quite a few bad PSU manufacturers though, and it's easy to confuse them.
