    Default New System : GA-P55-UD4,i5-750 Ram ??

    Hi im thinking of seeting up an i5 system:

    GA-P55-UD4
    i5-750

    but im not sure about the ram
    OCZ Kit DIMM 4GB DDR3-1333 OCZ3X13334GK, Intel® XMP Ready (PC3 12800)

    or GeIL Kit DIMM 4 GB DDR3-1333 GV34GB1333C7DC (PC3 10600 )

    or Buffalo Kit DIMM 4 GB DDR3-1333 (PC3 10600 )

    will a 600 watt do ? im not thinking of cross fire atm..

    btw whats the dif between PC3 12800 vs 10600 ?


    cheers!!!

    A 600W PSU will be more than enough for that system. Make sure it's a quality unit though, you want to protect your investment. It's common for people to skimp on the PSU at times even when the rest of their kit coste upwards of £1000.

    For a decent quality unit I recommend either a Corsair HX620 or a Seasonic S12/M12 (the M12 is modular if you need it as is the Corsair). Other good brands include but are not limited to OCZ, PC Power & Cooling (owned by OCZ) FSP, Be Quiet, Tagan and North Q. Basically if you haven't heard of the brand before, or you see a 600W supply for under ~£50/$70, be cautious and research the model first. This rough price guide obviously excludes any special offers and US/Canadian mail in rebates.

    PC3 1280 is DDR-1600 RAm which runs at an actual clock of 800MHz. I personally avoid saying "1600MHz RAM" because it's not really, it's just that compared, single data rate SDRAM would have to run at 1600MHz to be as fast, timings being equal. As it's not SDRAM, I see no point comparing t to legacy tech.

    I believe the Lynfield CPU's now accept DDR-1333 (PC3-10600) natively, with no over clocking required, unlike Nahalem (i7 920 and upward) which only natively support DDR-1066 (PC3-8500) all be it in triple channel, not dual channel.

    there's no real major performance advantage of DDR-1600 compared to DDR-1333, and you only really see most of the difference when running RAM benchmarks. For every day use and if not over clocking, 1333 is more than enough. If you want to over clock though, 1600 may be needed, depending on how much you push Base Clock etc.


    You didn't include links to the RAM's spec sheets so I can only guess at the RAM timings for the Buffalo kit. If they are also Cas 7 then there's not much between them. Of the three I'd go with the Geil, but that's just brand preference. Make sure ofc that they are rated to do their 1333 speed at or under 1.65V as the i5/i7 integrated memory controllers don't like high VDIMM. CPU death may be a risk with too high a RAM voltage.

    You may well find that all of these 1333 kits could do 1600 speeds with voltage adjustments and a change of timings. For instance, 1.5V 7-7-7-20 modules could be happy doing 1600 at 9-9-9-27 with 1.65V or maybe even 8-8-8-24. There's no guarantee that they will though, and purchasing 1600 modules is best if you definitely want 1600 speeds, unless you know the specific model of module will overclock.

    I'm not too sure about the PSU to be honest. The last PSU roundup I read (in Custom PC magazine, article on their website), the 1000W Cooler Master that they tested blew up at ~900W drawn.

    It may seem slightly expensive, but it's well worth spending that little bit more on a PSU if you can. If you are on a tight budget, as lots of people are atm, then a 500W-550W model would also power your system with ~100W to spare. Check out some reviews on the Cooler Master PSU before you buy to see what others think. Searching for it on [H]ard OCP is very useful, as their PSU reviews are very thorough.

    I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "quad fan", but if you are meaning can you use your old cooler, I think you need either a heatsink designed for socket 1156 or a seperate mounting kit if the maker of your heatsink makes one.

    thx for all the info mate, i just ordered it!!! woo finally!

    yea sorry i meant the fans that go on the 775 socket, i have seen a few cpu fans that are not for the i5 socket but do fit. in any case i will wait a bit and see if i can oc a little bit with stock.

    cheers,

    the above mentioned with the Cooler Master Silent Pro M600, plus a couple of case fans,
    also my first option was the OCZ3X13334GK but they didnt have it in stock. i will have to go to get the components at the store, if by any chance they do have this ram, i will get, but im happy enough with the geil mentioned.

    they sell i5 cpu coolers now the 775 sockets are different size to i5

    £75/$110 is a lot of money for some. I was toying with just getting an i5 myself. TB H there's not much I'd use that'll take advantage of multi threading. If I do get an i7 depending on if I can hit higher clocks with it off I'll probably disable it.
