I'm out to build yet another gaming PC to replace my 6 year old one.
CPU i7 3820 lga2011
Motherboard ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
Chasis Thermaltake TT Level 10 GT
RAM G.Skill Trident X Dual 2 x 8GB DDR3 2400 CL10
PSU Corsair AX1200i 80Plus Platinum Digital
GPU Asus GTX 680 DirectCU II 4gb/256bit ddr5 x 2
CPU Cooling Corsair H100i Hydro Series CPU Cooler
Fan Controller NZXT Sentry LX bay
SSD OCZ Vertex 4 256GB
HDD Seagate 2TB 64MB SATA
Just got some concern about compatability and bottlenecks:
1. Is the Rampage IV E too much of a motherboard for a 3820 CPU? MB nearly costs twice as much as my CPU.
2. RIVE with the 2400 RAM needs to be overclocked. RAM in my current rig also needs to be overclocked, but it also OCs the CPU. Anyone have issues with this? Had to change to a lower freq RAM for some stability.
I could go with a Corsair Dominator Platinum 2x8gb 1866 CL9 ( CMD16GX3M2A1866C9 ) instead and go with Corsair for most components.
3. Level 10 GT is a sexy case, with good airflow, but is it not enough in this build? Also, anyone know if the H100i will fit with this case? How about in a push/pull configuration?
