    fair enough but an X79? would a 1155 or 1150 setup not do or is this whole build based on the fact that you can get an Asus X79 cheap?

    Thats some serious horsepower for nothing more then note taking, thats all im saying.

    Pretty much because the 4820K + Asus X79 works out cheaper than an equivalent 1150 rig. 4770K's cost more than the 4820K (£235), and the motherboards are at least £120. Also I don't entirely trust the PSU inside my Silverstone ITX case, it made spark noises when I was testing it, so I might avoid using that case and PSU. Sucks, because I love it, but I don't fancy trying my luck, and RMA takes an age.
    Also I tend to parse and unrar files for hours on a daily basis, threads are fun yo.

    well If you wanna spend some cash - I need money for a 27" monitor, though i cant promise you sexual favours back in return :p

    If it works out cheaper then go with the X79. skt 2011 is EoL or soon to be EoL but with 8 threads you aint gonna be feeling any pressure to upgrade anytime soon after the skt2011 is long gone. should be decent if you delid and watercool it.

    I'm out of the watercooling game, too much hassle, I've done it three times over and had my fun.
    If anyone would spec me a processor, motherboard, smallest possible case and a solid PSU (semi or fully modular), I'd be glad to hear opinions. The 4820K and motherboard combo just work out cheaper is all.

    go for the X79 then return and play some BF4 with us.

    while youre deciding, for some reason im getting increasingly lazy and tempted to switch out my fans for PWM ones run off the motherboard.

    Crossing the channel, wandering into another channel. There's probably a town underneath that water xD
    At least they look suitably Bulgarian.

    OK 8350 system is going to my brother on Friday as we're having a LAN session Fri-Sun, so I booked Friday off and need to order a load of parts for a new PC this Friday. I need CPU, MoBo, Case, PSU. Any ideas? Would prefer mATX, looking at the Prodigy M as a focal point, as I have a lot of BF fans, including the 230mm one already.

    CPU? Haven't you heard? Mantle is coming, all you'll need is an AMD APU and an HD7730. You'll get 1000fps in BF4.

    Sorry, just out for a morning troll.

    Haha, ordered an MSI Z87M, the mATX board, probably going to get a bitfenix prodigy M. Just waiting for the daily deals to start to decide where i get the 4670K from and what PSU to get.

    point is oc potential of 4670K not 4770K. 1.5 fps difference between 3.4 and 4.2ghz
    you have no gain from oc 4670K in games. why then pay 20 more when you have same perfomace from 4670(no K here!!)

    Thank you sir, parts ordered. Aerocool Dead Silence mATX case, MSI Z87M mATX mobo, i5 4670, and a beQuiet! L8 630w modular. OCUK has a terrible choice of PSU's it seems.

    Nice PSU deal, but I was saving pennies going for the beQuiet!. Didn't expect to be buying this for another few weeks, so it went on the credit card for now.
    Yeah I figured I'd order it all from the same place, and as Scan didn't have the Prodigy M, I'd go for the next best thing.

    to me bequite look quite overpriced.
    wasnt impressed from their cpu cooler reviewed from tpu. mid range performace at the price of high performance coolers.
    if i remember well reviews of their psus was with same conclusion.

    But it's modular :D
    It got a pretty good review from hexus, they said the efficiency was pretty good considering it was Bronze.
