Hello SPCR, long time no see,
i want to build an Intel based PC for a friend of mine. He does a lot of audio recording/editing and video work (Adobe Premiere and Aftereffects).
Our part list so far:
Intel Core i7 3820 4x 3.60GHz So.2011 WOF
ASRock X79 Extreme4 Intel X79 So.2011 Quad Channel DDR3 ATX Retail
16GB Corsair Vengeance Black DDR3-1600 DIMM CL9 Quad Kit
Scythe Mugen 3 Rev.B SCMG-3100
256GB Samsung 830 Basic Series 2.5" (6.4cm) SATA 6Gb/s MLC Toggle (MZ-7PC256B/WW)
3000GB Western Digital Green WD30EZRX 64MB 3.5" (8.9cm) SATA 6Gb/
630 Watt be quiet! Pure Power L7 Non-Modular 80+
2048MB Zotac GeForce GT 640 Zone Edition Passiv PCIe 3.0 x16
LG Electronics Blu-ray Burner BH10LS SATA
24" Dell UltraSharp U2412M
With a Case we are at 1300€, would you spent the money differently? Are there major errors in this configuration? What about the CPU PSU combination?
The Plan is to put it in a simple Case with front to back airflow and two 120 case fans on 5-7 volts. The Harddisk will be mounted with rubber bands.
We need a Mainboard with 2x PCI slots for two "old" RME Multifaces (16 Channel recording).
Thanks in advance for your input!
