New Rig

Postby roadrunner » Sat Aug 18, 2012 4:27 pm

If finished my PC upgrade a little bit ago and thought I would take time to post the results.

Here is what I ended up with:

Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz
MSI Z77A-GD65 LGA 1155 Intel Z77
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO
MSI GeForce GTX 670 2GB
Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid Cooling System
G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB)
ASUS Blu-ray Burner BW-12B1ST
ASUS Xonar DGX PCI-E GX2.5 Sound Card
SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W
COOLER MASTER CM690 II 
COUGAR CF-V12HP 120mm x2
COUGAR CF-V14HB 140mm x3
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

I was able to hit a stable 4300 MHz @ ~70C without messing with voltage. Its a pretty mild OC which I will push more in the future. I am only air cooling the CPU so heat will be the limiting factor. I purchased a closed loop liquid cooler for my GPU. I bought a reference design GTX 670 and the noise from the blower fan was really loud when under load. With my liquid cooling mod to the card it runs very quiet and cool. Overall very happy with the latest IB board and CPU along with NVIDIA card (which will OC some more in the future).
