    My Monster..


    So, after waiting patiently, I've gone ahead and started ordering parts from NewEgg. Sadly enough, I ran out of money for buying all the parts at once, so I have to wait till December to get the final check from my previous employer :)

    Here we go...

    MOBO: Newegg.com - EVGA X79 DARK - LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 E-ATX Motherboard with Brand New GUI BIOS (150-SE-E789-KR)

    CPU: Newegg.com - Intel Core i7-4930K Ivy Bridge-E 3.4GHz LGA 2011 130W Six-Core Desktop Processor BX80633i74930K

    GFX: Newegg.com - EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2771-KR GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card

    RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 64GB (8 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-19200CL10Q2-64GBZHD - Newegg.com

    ** Won it from CM in the CM Advisory Contest back in the spring. :)

    CASE: Rosewill BLACKHAWK-ULTRA Gaming Super Tower Computer Case, support up to HPTX, come with Eight Fans,Top HDD docking - Retail - Newegg.com

    I currently have everything on the way, my current problem is;

    No 4-Way SLI, and no extra monitors. This bad boy will have a custom built Water Cooling that'll support;

    CPU, 4x Graphics Cards, and the Memory in a Water Cooled environment. :)


    Thoughts?

    Yes, Linne, I waited for it! :)

    Edit: I think I messed up on the ordering of the parts x_x

    Looks wicked and should be a hell of a project. You will want to take lots of pictures of this project. Can't wait to see them !

    You asked for thoughts, so, I would go with 32GB of RAM saving about $300 or so and not use the Corsair Force SSD, it uses Sandforce controller. I'd recommend Crucial M500, Samsung 840 pro or EVO, or OCZ Vector. Any of them will go well with your very high end system. Yes, we do like pictures of new builds.

    We don't know which parts are ordered or do we? I would agree the Samsung or Crucial would be my choice for SSD and you can always do the Ram in two orders as 32gb is a ton....a metric ton!

    I agree go EVO or Pro with the money you saved on the ram and you could get a 512 for 450.00 so that would be almost a even trade Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

    Way overkill on the RAM, in fact it could slow you down. 16 is overkill unless you are doing some heavy video editing. Cut back the RAM, get the best ssd drive you can, plus the best GPU. What are you going to use this for?

    If you haven't bought your RAM kit yet (or can return it if you did), you would be better off with this one. It's only 16GB but that probably would be plenty for you. The RAM you selected, besides being insanely huge, has less than great timings. I checked on Kingston's, Corsair's, and G-Skills websites to see what they recommended for your board. The only hits I got was on G-Skill's site and this was the largest kit they had that had decent timings.

    64GB is just insane for most people, will be temperamental to get to work correctly (and your board is already temperamental to get working correctly, according to some reviews), and will probably slow your computer down. Gaming rarely, if ever, will need more than 8GB. All but the most intense photo and video editing will rarely require more than 16GB. One would have to be recording one or more video feeds, mass editing dozens, if not hundreds, of photos, and watching videos all at the same time to go over 32GB. I have 32GB RAM (sadly, my kit wasn't compatible with your MOBO according to the various websites I checked) and the only time I go over 16GB (and that is only for brief peaks) is when I'm running scans on Avast, MBAM, SAS, and Spybot, all at the same time (most people don't run that much security software, period, let alone simultaneously: I just happen to be paranoid). I once was mass editing several dozen photos and I briefly peaked a hair over 16GB.

    But an advantage to all of that 64 gb ram which many don't consider is the ability to set up a ram drive.
