    Re: Chalex new PC build

    In all likelihood, I'll be selling:

    • Intel Q6600 2.4GHz - G0 stepping, 1.2v VID (excellent overclocker, I reached 3.6GHz easily)
    • Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme (including Scythe S-FLEX 1600RPM Ultra Quiet 120mm Fan)
    • Asus Maximus Formula X38
    • Antec 900
    • Antec NeoPower 650 Blue
    • G.Skill 8GB DDR2 PQ PC2-8000C5 (4x2GB) CAS5 Dual Channel Kit


    All were going to go on the bay, but I guess it'd be easier if any of you were interested. I can then transport to LAN and save you the postage cost.

    My special price for you Target would be 35 for the 900 .

    That's one hell of an upgrade! Look forward to seeing it at i46.

    i7 920@3.8 | GTX280 | HAF 932 | 6GB | Corsair 520W
    Hazro 24" | Logitech Illuminated | G500 | Creative 2.0 | Nikon D3100

    You could've built better for the price

    Of course I could, if I'd found somewhere that was even cheaper than Scan, or if I'd just bought less expensive stuff .

    Anyway, build is going swimmingly (after a PITA CPU cooler). Pics will be up soon.

    Well I got an i7-3820 with the gigabyte X79-UD5 motherboard and 16gb of corsair vengance racing red 2133mhz ram for roughly 600

    EDIT: the ram btw is quad channel, not dual or triple.

    Nice, but that doesn't include a case, cooler, ssd, psu OR graphics card .

    Re: Chalex new PC build

    But surely you had a case psu and cooler before? an SSD is an unneeded but admittedly useful addition and you can add a 670 for the low cost of only 340

    so budgeted properly you could've got a lot better for the same price, possibly a little bit more.

    Re: Chalex new PC build

    I've no idea what my clock ACTUALLY is, but "My Computer" shows this: http://i.imgur.com/TNFq7.png
    so I'm not sure if its 3.60 or 3.80

    Re: Chalex new PC build

    I don't really know what I'm doing though that's the thing right now I don't really have the patience for it because I mean, it's not like its slow? I have the corsair H60 for cooling as well
