Thread: New stuff GA-X58-UD3R i7 930




  1. #1

    Default New stuff GA-X58-UD3R i7 930

    I decided to upgrade my computer now, its pretty dangerous to have one of Sweden's biggest hardware/game retailers just across the street from my work :P

    I picked up a i7 930, UD3R and a 80gb Intel SSD and will use my components for now which is:

    GA-X48T-DQ6 rev 1.3 BIOS F6E
    Intel C2D E8400 C0 @ 440x9 (3960Mhz)

    Corsair H50 Cpu cooler powered by a Noctua Fan
    Corsair XMS3 DHX 9-9-9-24
    Gainward HD 4870
    Zalman HP650
    Fractal Design Define R2

    I was thinking that I might need to exchange RAM and PSU as well. Not sure which RAM I should use, any pointers?
    PSU will probably be a Corsair 750HX.
    GA-X58A-UD3R (2.0)

    I'd suggest a different PSU, larger if you can afford it. Those Z's have had a few known issues with X58, I'm not sure if it was that model in particular or not though.

    You could always try it out though before getting something new.

    As for memory, I would advise you get a triple channel kit rated at 1.65V

    Yeah, I know about the Zalman issue we discussed it a few months ago :) How about the corsair 750hx, shouldn't that work fine? I wont run SLI or a silly amount of HDD, probably just 2 hdd in raid 0 and the SSD.

    I was thinking about this memory:

    And this PSU:

    Not sure, do a search here with X58* and 750HX and see if people have had issues, I can't recall that one being a problem though but I could be wrong.

    Memory should be fine

    Hmm, major problem. I tried to install win 7 but the first cd I tried was broken so some files were missing. Then I tried another copy which worked before but it just reboots as soon as the windows loading starts.

    trying that now.
    The second win 7 disc installs everything but when it tries to start windows for the first time it reboots in an endless loop. Could it be something with SSD drive?
    I have my old velociraptor disc that I used up until today I could try installing on that one to see if that solves the problem.

    you can put raid in ports 1 and 2, and ssd in port 0
    you want it to scan for your ssd first then the raid setup and any dvd drives later in 4 and 5
