hi everyone i have been reading here a lot before i built my system.. and i have it together now.. i thought i would post the pictures because i love to look at others' pictures... also i have a few minor questions.. and i also have advice for anyone else making a build based on my success

this is my first build i have never even replaced a video card before this i didnt even know how to install ram.. lol looking back i was a total newb.. luckily i learn very fast and i think i can call myself now a semi-expert

but unfortunately im still newb at photo taking













okay time for system specs (everything i bought i made sure had the highest feedback at newegg.. and that strategy has paid off greatly)

CPU: I7 920 D0@3.8 1.15v (shows lower on CPUz ? not sure why) 1.2v QPI, 200 blck 19x multi (ordered at newegg)

(i have made it stable at 4.2 but i don't need so much power and i don't think its worth the CPU strain over the long term, if i need a quick upgrade next year i will just set it higher)

CPU cooling: Prolimatech Megalahems with two 1800rpm very very quiet fans Noiseblocker NB-Multiframe M12-S3HS 120mmx25mm Ultra Silent Fan - 1800 RPM - 27 dBA (i cant even hear them with my ear next to them) these are absolutely silent placed vertically.. they make alot noise if you put them horizontal.. don't do that
(ordered at frozencpu, (highly recommended))

Runs idle 32C-40C in ambient 70F

Runs full load Prime 95 1 hour.. 58-64C (max 64C on core 0, all other cores stay under 62C) ambient 75F

Case: Thermaltake VL10001W2Z Element G.. seems kindof cheap looking at the name but.. this is an awsome case with really great airflow and pretty cool lights... ( hint: at first it appears impossible to have the fan lights different colors.. but if you set the fan color and then unplug and replug in the fans.. they will run at different colors.. so if anyone wants to know how to do that its easy to have different color fans.. lol) i really love this case cant beat it for 100 dollars and free shipping (bought on amazon)

it came with 4 fans.. although advertised with three... IM NOT COMPLAINING ..LOL... awesome ..want to add dual 40mms to the back

RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) bought for 137.99 at newegg.. wow this is awesome ram.. i tried to overclock it but it got really temperamental when i put my CPU at 4.2 AND RAM AT 1833 MHZ..so i just left it at 1600mhz timed it at 7-8-7-24.. makes overclocking really easy.. highly recommend... fast ram cheap price

DVD: DVD BURN SONY|AD-7240S-0B % 1 31.99

Motherboard: 1 x ASUS P6T Deluxe v2 Intel X58 Core i7 Socket 1366 PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) ATX Motherboard Retail @ $279.99
really great board makes overclocking so easy a newb can pwn....
bought at zipzoomfly.. (i heard bad things about these guys.. but they worked great for me)

PSU: 1 x CORSAIR 850TX 850W SLI/CrossFire Active Power Supply Retail @ $127.00
bought at zipzoomfly... this is great once again the cables are awesome.. and there are plenty enough to do anything with.. also the packaging came with an awesome felt bag for the PSU i will be putting my crown royal in lol

Hard drives: 2x WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR BLACK 5YR MFG WARRANTY $102.59 2 $205.18
Subtotal: $205.18
Shipping&Handling: Free
Grand Total: $205.18

bought NextWarehouse.com.. great highly recommend

Awesome hard drives.. totally destroys the hard drives i had in my old system that were raid 0.. these beat the old hard drives even unraided.. awesome.. cant wait to see how they perform raid 5 warranty also is a great thing to have




VIDEO CARD: ati 5770.. this is a place holder..i want to get the lightning 5870 2GB or 6 port 2GB 5870 when they come out hopefully soon.. i really need the GB when pushing 7 million pixels on 3x 1920 x 1200 monitors.. i struggle to get past 2xaa in most games currently

OS: ohhh also WIN 7 64 got on Ebay for 55 dollars

so if anyone is looking to build a *** A** system for $1312
($1367 with WIN 7) which is exactly what this cost me with shipping and deals.. here is your answer... want to spend more get a 5870.. want to spend less save yourself $120-250 on the cooler / hard drives / PSU... this thing is great and i will be able to upgrade it for the future and it already is amazing.. so that's my advice for the newbs.. build this system you will not be dissapointed and youll have a solid upgrade future.. hope i can help someone

here are my questions i hope the super experts can help me out on..

Question #1...where can i find pair if quit 40mm fans that wil either run on one fan plug on the mother board.. or a plugs from the PSU.. i would like them to be quiet i don't want any noise.. as my computer is already silent..

Question #2.. i am going to get a sound card.. HT OMEGA plus.. what is a really really nice 5.1 or 7.1 sound system for this.. budget is unlimited.. as i have struck it rich in the stock market.. but i still like to save my cash for making it rain so lets say 1000 is a good price.. but if something else justifies the price.. damn the torpedoes full speed ahead!!!!! thanks.. ( i LOVE MUSIC!!!)

ohh also monitors 3x Dell u2410 490 dollars each ebay.. amazing monitors.. but not cheap.. if you dont have balling bank account like me you may want some 200 dollar ones.. lol thanks everyone ahead of time



and in conclusion everything is AWSOME! lol

Shows lower on CPU-Z because it is the vanilla clocks. The current clocks are shown below it.

I call BS on a 1st time builder and these parts. You must have done some research far beyond anyone I've ever seen.

Answer to questions 1, there are no quite 40mm fans. It's a myth trust me.

Answer to question 2, there are a ton of great sound cards available pick one. :)

well done looks good... :)
At the end of your post you were saying something about the performance of your HDD's in Raid 0... and thinking that they will do better in Raid 5... well they wont... raid 5 is slow as hell... its good for redundancy but other than that it sucks balls ;)

very nice build dude.

to the crappy pics thing : put you camera on something if you dont have a tripod, never hold it in you hands, and especially not at night pictures.

put it on something that is firmly secure, then put the timer to like 2-5 seconds and take the picture, with that you have time to get away from the cam and the pics will be better

hope you understand my english, from denmark

and happy new year

Could you repost the CPU-z screen shot with colors that make it where I can see it. I'm 17 and I can't see that period. So, either my eyes are crap, or thats hard to read. :laugh:

Welcome to TPU!

Excellent components you've got there, as it's already been said, you've done your homework - nicely done!

I definitely recommend you fill in your system specifications and check out the Cable Management thread.

Amazing build for a first time builder, its great to see people really getting into building there systems instead of buying some overpriced off the shelf garbage.
thanks.. yeah i don't see the point in wasting money for no reason especially since i have a lot of free time, i might as well use it.. i first thought it would suck.. but i had an awesome time making it, glad i did, and the satisfaction is so much more than buying one

3870x2:
Shows lower on CPU-Z because it is the vanilla clocks. The current clocks are shown below it.
i understand that, i wasn't talking about core speed.. i was talking about the volts.. i have it set to 1.15v but it shows 1.136v

Sensi Karate:
Nice build man! Hope you have a great time with your new PC!
Thanks and i am

hat:
Damn man, who's credit card did you steal nice build
i believe interest is the devils work, dont take any credit cards i know many people who's lives are destroyed because of them i wont ever have a credit card.. i use debit

mlee49: I call BS on a 1st time builder and these parts. You must have done some research far beyond anyone I've ever seen.
i read several review sites on every part i bought.. and believe me there are alot of liars out there clearly taking money under the table.. i can smell their BS.. and checked the feedback on new egg on every part if it didn't have 80% or more 5 star rating i didn't buy.. and no all my other computers i bought from best buy.. stupid me man i wasted alot of money.. now i know.. my last computer cost me 2000 dollars at best buy and it was junk lol

Answer to questions 1, there are no quite 40mm fans. It's a myth trust me.
well if that's true too bad.. i guess i didn't really need them anyway i was just really excited to add another part to the computer

Answer to question 2, there are a ton of great sound cards available pick one
i already settled on the HT Omega Claro Plus.. based on several reviews plus new egg feed back.. i almost got a new one on ebay for 96 dollars.. but i mistimed the last bid by a few seconds and missed it .. DANG!!.. i really don't want to pay full retail 174 dollars.. what i dont know about is the receiver and speaker system i need to choose

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...9271003&cm_re=ht_omega-_-29-271-003-_-Product


see here.. i refuse to pay the high price i will wait for it to get 155 or less

twicksisted:
well done looks good...
At the end of your post you were saying something about the performance of your HDD's in Raid 0... and thinking that they will do better in Raid 5... well they wont... raid 5 is slow as hell... its good for redundancy but other than that it sucks balls
i dont have any raid at the moment and im satisfied with the speeds.. maybe i will raid 0 them then and just manually put all my important files to two back up hard drives.. i was hoping there would be a better solution.. is raid 5 faster than no raid at all?

(FIH) The Don:
to the crappy pics thing : put you camera on something if you dont have a tripod, never hold it in you hands, and especially not at night pictures.
thanks im sure that would help.. but i dont have a tripod yet.. or even a camera... main problem is my crappy camera phone..it just sucks

Could you repost the CPU-z screen shot with colors that make it where I can see it. I'm 17 and I can't see that period. So, either my eyes are crap, or thats hard to read.
sure thing.. sorry i like to have a black background on everything with green blue and red text.. because with three 24 inch monitors all that white will give me a headache really fast



neoreif:
Welcome to TPU Bro! And a happy new year to you too! For the price that you spent on that build of yours? You sure had a 'bang for your buck' right there!
thanks yeah i planed everything out for about a month.. i used camel camel camel ( an add on for firefox to track prices to buy them at the lowest.. and i used google products to compare the prices from every vendor.. and i always checked ebay and amazon to see if anyone was selling any thing really cheap that was still new.. got lucky a few times.. you can get some amazing deals on ebay if you wait long enough.. im a commodities trader so this just came naturally to me.. if anyone wants to get the camel camel camel..

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/14392/

highly recommended.. turns every purchase into a commodities trade lol

thanks.. yeah i know the cable management isnt the best.. but i did use alot of zip ties.. and as bad as it looks its really not blocking any airflow the way ythe fans are set up.. and if it is .. i have plenty of extra anyway more than i need.. still would like some quiet 40mm fans though.. (thier rumored to not exist)

Great news!! i found the same brand 40mm fans that i have for my CPU cooler.. the noiseblockers from Germany.. boy those germans sure do make precision equipment.. hehe.. only 11 decibels!! wow thats quieter than

11 Decibels is equivalent to the amount of noise breath makes!! or a good recording studio LOL

10 Db = Good Recording Studio Breathing

granted they dont push alot of air.. i could double the airflow to the 3500 rpm version at 14 db.. hm decisions decisions....


i owe "brandonwh64" a huge thank you for helping me find these thanks alot!!!

Welcome to TPU and enjoy your time here!

To be a better cameraman, all you need is to light up your subject (in this case your computer). The more light you have shining on the subject, the easier it is to take a good picture. We can worry about the other details later.

Welcome aboard bro. For a first build you truly did your homework bro. Congrats and hope to see you around here often.

I think both of your questions have already been answered so I won't bother.
