Yet again i must meddle :happy:

I am not confident that it will sufficiently cool the i7 3930K as this CPU runs much hotter than the previous generation


How does his cooler compare to mine? Mine runs at 28C idle and I've never seen it above 50C. Granted Norway is cold as **** compared to Israel, but if it's close to the specs of mine he should be good

I see.
You are totally right about the case, looks much more suited for my needs,with all the hdd bays and cooling.
from review I have read about the sabertooth, I think I will stick with the x79 pro, they are almost identical and its harder to come by the sabertooth from what ive checked at retailers around where i live.

Thanks again for your attention and feedback

Your right about the case, many more HDD bays, much more suited.
The Retailer im going for doesnt have the sabertooth,so I will go with the X79 pro.

Also, memory wise, this is the list of memory they carry

OK for the case.
OK for the Motherboard. > http://support.asus....TjeO1wq0nRUPfej

Downlad the user manual as they are often more up to date than the one that come in the box. You will also see the QVL, this is RAM that has been tested and is known to work. RAM with the same specs should work but as there are so many, not all can be tested.

There has been some issues on this platform. Advice I see, is to stay with Max voltage of 1.5, 1.35 if you are thinking of overclocking.
For your build, more RAM is far more important than high speeds. I think you should start with a min of 16GB using no more than 4 of the Mobo slots. this will leave 4 slots available for the future.

look for,

CORSAIR CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9(XMP) 16GB ( 4x 4GB ) we will need to do a bit more searching as we go along.
Sorry, but the list you put up is not very legible.

Hi.

It has been a while since we had a contact from you. Are you still contemplating a new build?

Hi!

Sorry for the late reply, got caught up in non-computer related life issues....:)

Still looking at all the specs you have mentioned,

My vendor sells this memory

Corsair DDR3 8192MB (4096MBx2) 1600MHz CL 9-9-9-24 Vengeance

But couldnt find it on the list... still ok?

also, in the graphics card department,

wondering if to go gtx 670 or 570 will do...

Here is a review for the Freezer 13 Pro, > http://www.hardwares...r-Review/1239/6 tested on a i7 860 Quad core, which runs cooler than the 3930K. You are on liquid cooling.

Gday.

Sorry for the late reply, got caught up in non-computer related life issues....

:)

Tis OK, I hope you have sorted them out.


Mobo Web site, > http://usa.asus.com/...9_PRO/#overview, Please note, no fire wire, if you need it for your cameras, we would have to go for a PCI card.

I know you have said you have HDDs, but I have put up a full build for you to look at which we can adjust.

Wow, Thanks a bunch, This is really great. Much appreciated- I will use the list as reference when buying...

Right now I am having trouble finding a vendor here with that exact type of corsair memory,
Any alternatives? what am I looking for when looking at memory?

Thanks again

your more than welcome.
If possible, low voltage, 1.35. CAS latency is not important. Low profile, high heat spreaders can stop you installing many heat sinks/fans. Ideally, 32GB, using only 4 RAM slots.
I will have some more info for you later.

In case you provide them to your clients, I included a Blu Ray burner, OEM, so no software.

If using your existing drives means tearing down your working PC? I would urge you not to do so.
You may receive a DOA part. cold take weeks to get a replacement.
The rig will need to be stress tested, optimized and tested again
The software needs to be optimized breeding on the HDD configuration.

Would you be getting a system builder to build for you with site support? or DIY?

Heya,
I will be trying to put it together myself, as I have my past builds.
Thanks for looking into alternative memory possibilities...( I found this...
corsair CMZ16GX3M4X1600C9 Vengeance 16GB 4X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-27 240PIN Quad Channel Memory Kit

any good?)

I guess I will, at first use only one drive from the old build, before migrating the other HDD's to the new setup...

Let me rephrase my earlier post about cooling.

If the cooling system performs about the same as mine, there shouldn't be a problem. After testing the 3930k fully i now realize how hot it actually runs. Prime95 torture test sends it to 60-65C, all fans maxed out.
Just thought i'd warn you before you decide what cooling system to get.

That being said, i doubt photo-editing will draw that much power from the processor for that amount of time.

If you need any hands-on info about the 3930k (tests etc) just ask me, I might be able to supply info that you can't find on the internet :)

Thanks for the info...so what cooling would you advise to get?

The "NOctua" that was advised seems pretty awesome..
