Evaluating a ( higher )Configuration Suggestion -- Advice?

Post by T K » Fri Aug 02, 2013 12:45 am

Greetings!



When seeking to realize something based on this viewtopic.php?f=23&t=66304, was offered|suggested a some-what difFerent configuration as well...
( perhaps it'd work better in a separate thread, thence this one )


Case
Fractal Design Define R4 - - tower - ATX - Black Pearl, 2 system-ventilators

Power Supply
Sea Sonic Platinum Series 520 Fanless - Power supply ( internal ) - ATX12V / EPS12V - 80 PLUS Platinum - 520 Watt - active PFC (P-520FL)

Fan
Thermaltake NiC F3 - Processor cooler

Motherboard
ASUS Z87-A

CPU
Intel Core i5 4670K - 3.4 GHz

Has September already arrived?

Intel released a Product Change Notification for all of the Haswell chipsets (found this at Hardwareinfo). There's a bug with the USB 3 implementation causing problems when waking from sleep. Intel's fix is the C2 stepping, which won't be qualified until July 1 and in mobo's end July. The PCN can be found here.

There's always risk when you are an early adopter. It seems like every CPU/chipset released has some kind of bug the necessitates a silicon spin. If you take a look through any motherboard mfgr's BIOS downloads, the revision history tells a similar story - lots of revisions in the first few months and then things settle down.

Are those issues already alright?

RAM
Crucial Ballistix Tactical - Memory - 4 GB - DIMM 240-pin - DDR3 - 1600 MHz / PC3-12800 - CL8 - 1.5 V - unbuffered - non-ECC -4 modules

However,

...and I had found
- Crucial DDR3 4GB Ballistix UDIMM 240pin, L-1600, PC3-12800, Unbuffered, NON-ECC, CL8 VLP, 1.35V, 512Meg x 64, Low Profile

How do their difFerences have effect?

STORAGE (SSD , HDD)
Samsung 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256 - Solid state drive - 256 GB - internal - 2.5" - SATA-600 (MZ-?7PD256BW)

Seagate Pipeline HD ST2000VM003 - Hard drive - 2 TB - internal - 3.5" - SATA-600 - 5900 rpm - buffer: 64 MB

Video (GPU)
ASUS GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5 - Graphics card – Nvidia GF GTX 760 - 2 GB GDDR5 - PCI Express 3.0 x16 - 2 x DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort
Should MSI Twinfrozr (IV) be better recommended?

DVD-RW (external device)
BUFFALO MediaStation 8x Portable DVD Writer with LED Power Indicator - Disk drive - DVD±RW (±R DL) / DVD-RAM - 8x8x5x - Hi-Speed USB – external (DVSM-?PC58U2VB-?EU)

Monitor:
BenQ GW2450HM - LED monitor - 24" - 1920 x 1080 - VA - 250 cd / m2 - 5000:1 - 20000000:1 (dynamic) - 4 ms - HDMI, DVI-D, VGA - speakers - glossy black


And what would you say regarding CPU Cooling and HDD?

Thank you!



All the Best!
