High-performance configuration on the Intel LGA2011 socket with an i7 3820 processor - hardware guide

Hi friends, today we set up a system based on the new Intel socket, it is LGA2011 that comes with the new Sandy Bridge series.
The new motherboards will have support for quad chanel memory, bandwidth means that all the bits 256 from 128 64 for dual channel or single chanel bits.
Another improvement is the support for PCI Express 3.0, it brings a double bandwidth (1 GB / s on a single line, 1 GB / s for the 16X slot) for PCI-x lanes which translates into higher performance good in multi gpu configurations (SLI and CrossFire), ready with bottlenecks…
The processor chosen for this system is i7 3820, a processor i7 something better than 2600, L3 cache has been increased from the 8 10 MB or frequency has remained stable, it was increased significantly (vs 3,6 3,4).
The remaining components are selected top quality and can keep the bar up high for i7 3820.
The video card is one of Gigabyte done with responsibility (no coolers Worse), a GTX560 (not IT, not OC) with an efficient cooling and quiet due to cooler very good (2 large fans + 4 heatpipe's), this It can be overclocked without problems so we can approach the performance of a GTX560TI which is more performance but is more expensive.
Storage, as you already know is made up of SSD and HDD storage system for multimedia files and documents, this is the best solution given the high price of SSDs.
The source is from Seasonic, this is the highest quality, the X series from Seasonic is a series dedicated to connoisseurs (Sanyo Denki, capacitors quality PCBs neat), this source pote feed smoothly two video cards performance, being prepared with power cables long enough for them.
Housing is quite accessible, does not mean it is of poor quality, the source is mounted down, and because we have chosen a quality source we will not have any problems with cable lengths.
As a bonus, Intel gave us a gift more powerful CPU cooler (do not know how you promotion) would be a shame to have a powerful PC and not miss an efficient and quiet cooler.
Components used:
Intel ® Core TM i7-3820, 3.60GHz Socket 2011, Box
MSI X79A-GD45, socket 2011
Gigabyte GeForce video card GTX560, 1024MB, GDDR5, 256bit, DVI, PCI-E
Elixir memory 2GB, DDR3, 1333Mhz, PC10600
Solid-State Drive (SSD) Corsair Force GT 2.5
Hitachi Deskstar HDD 7K1000 1TB, 7200rpm, 32MB, SATA3
Source Seasonic X-660, 660W, ATX12V
Housing V9 Thermaltake Black Edition Mid Tower ATX, free source, Black
The bonus from Intel:
Cooler Thermaltake Contac 30 compatible Intel / AMD (Unless it received gift, however you will receive a stock cooler with the CPU)

Success!

    Thank you again

    Each game has specs. Suffice it to go to google and type fifa fifa system requirements and system specifications (it is best to search in English) so you do for any game. Write its name in google plus words and hit enter system requirements
    To play PC games you need a very well balanced, with a good source of constant without fluctuations
    PC is a whole and all the parts work together
    In vain you put a super board like GTX 680 on a motherboard that you have an E5200 processor or weaker, you will have what was mentioned in the tutorial, ie bottleneck. The performance of the board will be limited by the processor…

  3. Thank you very much Cristi, tokmai mi`am taken this system and moves great, performs over the charts so to speak, I can say that I opened 50 applications and held my system proceosrul in 2% is a great, thanks for Why do you exist and ptr, still with videotutorial luck and good health to you and your whole family welcome

  4. and USB can somehow put 3.0? I saw that the motherboard does not have and I thought they came out usb sticks 3.0

  11. I do not understand something, if you have integrated graphics processors in them; motherboards that have no video output? if it lost video of the process. I would like to postpone one time buying video card that is a great price for passing on my income 2011. nor the most expensive plate on 2011 no video output. will appear motherboard video output socket 2011?

  12. Cam for a long time, 1000 euro meant a powerful PC.

    Any video card is good for games, now depends on what games you want to run. Crysis will not run well on this board.
    However, it is an entry level motherboard, desktop, old movies and games go even new games on minimum settings, otherwise you have to put some bucks a plate if you want serious gaming.

    Hello I am and intel core processor socket i7 2600 1155 and in certain moments with cooling problems occur exactly it kinda warms and interested in a cooler until March 300-350 leicare maintain it cool

    What does "it gets a little hot" mean to you, how many degrees does it reach and what do you do at that moment (games, graphics, transcoding)?
    The processor is not a corpse "let's keep it cool", you should know that I also have cooler stock.

  15. So when I said it kinda warms mam concerns that have used blender to make an intro asemanot at the movies 20th Century Fox and lasted about 10 hours (rendering takes about 8-12ore by pc) and the use of 25-30 55-60% have degrees cam thing that scared me.
    otherwise the game is not even shake temperature did not work but I do not really play on it but I do astefel things.
    if you can tell me some suggestions (mar interested in water cooling).

    60 degree is not a high temperature since CPU load, you have nothing to worry about, generally processors today are not so hot, you can rest assured with the cooler stock if it's just 60 degrees in charge.

  17. It probably is not very big but it's cool that annoys me make too much noise and to exchange in the shortest time.
    And apple interesting and a video board and not really know what to do to wait until GTX series 600 (I have a motherboard from Asus p8z68-V LX and are not sure if we pci express 3.0 on the box it says it has but the store said 2.0) and apple lost interest a source from OCZ I was thinking of 850W (for gtx 570 near future and later a possible sli) or from Seasonic was a growing source of 800 or 850W

  18. Scuzti me that are not the subject, but have aces advise Replace the old button interface that led to your youtube channel.
    And you will say as do an excellent job!
    Keep up the good work

  23. It would appear that the trial has integrated graphics

  24. Is the processor on its knees? nothing is said about 3D on arkintel either :) hmm…

    • If you're a system based on a processor so I do not think you should stand the thought of integrated graphics.
      This is a high-performance processor, for those who know what they want, for others there are plenty of alternatives on the market.

    Salsera: I7 3820

    You do not know what you're talking about. If this is done on the knee processor then often you do not know to read or do not know how to use ark.intel.
    Write clearly there graica of peprocesor depends on the motherboard and its chipset. You need a motherboard capable integrated graphics that you can use. If the plate is not shown in the tutorial video output and does not know how to work with the integrated graphics processor does not mean that the processor does not support something like: http://i44.tinypic.com/33wbnep.png

  26. Hello Cristi
    What do you think of this base plate is good?
    And the company is somehow part of Asrock Asus?
    And it's serious company that is have good products? ms
    http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?model=g41m-vs3

  27. I beg a thousand excuses . thanks for the reply. 3D yet what about the specifications on the processor .. so do not indicate anything about

  28. Hello guys! I also have a question… on the motherboard that Cristi presented in this tutorial, what do you do if the sound or network card burns by chance because I see that it has no PCI ports and I see that the network cards are a bit rare on PCI-E 1X?

  29. Iron Maiden said

    Hi, my question is, just use SSD for the operating system and hard drive for storing movies, games, etc. ?

    • Yes SSD is only used for the system to my PC, not because it would not be good for storage but because SSDs are quite expensive possibly can jab and one game SSD now see and how do you stay with space.

  30. From the link that you gave which compares the 2 processors anadtech it is clear that i7 3820 is weaker as 2600k in games, and that's because the cache is slow. It is a very good processor for multi sli / crossfire for heavy workload but useless in gaming with a single video card or 2 mainstream also no difference of fps in games if RAM is in single or quad channel (tested by me ) just no difference in games if you enter it overclocked RAM. Say it's a good system for a gamer, do not do excesses, but games do not know how to use hyper threading, best processor being i5 2500 k / non k games at the moment, and the 300 lei would be put to a vidoe best plate (560ti) that overclocked performance approaching as 570. It makes sense to say that 2011 socket motherboards are extremely expensive? What do I mean it's a good system for enthusiasts with 4 way SLI (although housing is cramped for it) or for video editing.

  31. Sorry, the question may sound ridiculous, but what video card might compare the graphics on Intel® HD Graphics a i3 2120 2000?

  32. Alex:
    Sorry, the question may sound ridiculous, but what video card might compare the graphics on Intel® HD Graphics a i3 2120 2000?

    I say a radeon 5450, although it is even weaker than that. Anyway lead 3D everything except games.

  33. You got a plaque on GDDR5 And ​​Ram on ddr3

    I think you have not watched the video tutorial tail head and you do not understand who is dedicated to such a system.
    I wish to inform you that we have put in dual channel memory Elixir almost 3 years and have no ass, even more than we did overclock and still not dead.
    Where did you get this with the firecrackers? He probably hasn't left you on New Year's Eve yet.
    Where does Corsair or Kingston write or why should it be? what arguments do you have The same two questions apply to Asus…. what's the phase Aa… it's just that you're an Asus fanboy or why?
    It's a balanced system overclock ERI but not for ordinary users who want gaming, a powerful
    What's the phase with 8 memory slots? do you make a server in your house or ..!?! I say it was better with 15 memory slots… aaa, what do you say?

  36. Everyone knows that you put some firecrackers (from memory I mean). You know very well why Corsair / Kingston.

    8 phase memory slots is the same as the source, or leave room to upgrade later, or do not leave.

    If you still buy a good source for future SLI / Crossfire, bought good motherboard, which leave room for memories for later, or not, if all umblii with pans, just buy 2 memories 4Gb piece, and you do 2 remain empty slots.

    Your argument is not a solid one… .who is that everyone who knows they are firecrackers? In the comments section of this tutorial, only you had to object about the "firecrackers". Gather some signatures to tell us who everyone is saying.
    I do not know what you need 16 RAM slots as long as the motherboard supports 64 GB. I guarantee you will not put as much RAM forever, even if you use server motherboard
    Think practically will not stretch to more if you do not necessarily need.

    Friend, Corsair and Kingstone are shit (excuse my expression) besides Crucial or G. Skill. Everyone knows who Crucial is and who G.Skill is. Probably, you are a 12-year-old child, ready for money, who, when he saw "bombs", makes his father buy them too, as if we had to keep up with fashion. Elixirs are simple memories (the man specified in the tutorial that it is not for overclocking, I hope you know what overclocking is). The MSI X79A-G45 motherboard in the tutorial is ready for SLI / Crossfie and is not a pan. You look bad. I think you're a troller, but trolling is an art.

    Specifically look for the answer given for SALSERITA here in this tutorial… Please read the comments before posting a comment. Maybe your ambiguity / problem has already been answered.

    • Not the sort of man who wants mura mouth, I read the comments, but I want to assure you, that says something to the video processor.
      I just want to be sure if this is the most appropriate configuration for. video processing, pt. I will set me right after your advice and I would not like to make mistakes, the amount being considered.
      Thank you very much!

  42. Luca depends what you do with this system, ie working pro or amateur level.
    Cristi put in tutorial that you can take, but 8 GB Ram for Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects CS CS 5 5 is less. I advise you to buy 16 GB RAM and video card you can buy the cheapest GTX 570 5 because Premiere Pro CS uses for CUDA hardware acceleration (Mercury Playback Engine GPU hardware accelerated). Eventually you can buy a monitor with IPS or S-PVA panel (S-IPS, H-IPS) if you want, you can help enormously. IPS and S-PVA render colors well.

    Aboveand processor socket motherboard 2011 would be most appropriate for what I need?

    The best would be to buy one with you 6 cores, but cost and does not fit into your budget. Merge and i7 3820 + MSI X79A G45 + 16GB RAM + SSD (or 2 HDDs in Raid 0 because in Premiere Pro are limited by HDD and to have slideshows even with an efficient system) + GTX570 + Source Seasonic X660. If you buy what I put above will not regret it, I guarantee. I had the above system except the CPU, having at that time I 2600K Z68 GD + MSI + 65GB Ram 16 580 + GTX + 2x Intel SSD Raid 520 0, and went smooth.

  47. Cristi-admin: For a mains fluctuations with protection is ineffective, you need a tit ups with AVR (auto voltage raga) or a stabilizer.

    Cristi, apart from the heat and DirectX 11, how does an nVidia video card compared to a GTX285 GTX460? I refer strictly to performance.

  48. AnduCristi, apart from the heat and DirectX 11, how does an nVidia video card compared to a GTX285 GTX460? I refer strictly to performance.

    GTX460 is better without question.
    If you find a cheaper SH GTX285 you can get it, but it's undoubtedly board GTX460 newer, cooler, better made.

  49. Cristi-admin: GTX460 is better without question.
    If you find a cheaper SH GTX285 you can get it, but it's undoubtedly board GTX460 newer, cooler, better made.

    Well I got 2 weeks ago GTX285 plate for the second PC of mine. I personally find it very very good. I searched the net more reviews and supposedly it's kind of like HD20 5830% more efficient, which is direct rival GTX460. that ask more. I know it is not really relevant, but I had a HD4890 the OC, and that drove the board 7.7 Windows Experience Index. I GTX285 7.4 out.
    Well, maybe it's limited by CPU (AMD Athlon II x4 640 @ 3GHz) or source (Enermax 450W). Anyway plate is extremely quiet (original nVidia), and full load reaches 82 12 degrees minutes after stress (FurMark).

  50. I comfiguratia this: AMD Phenom II Black Edition x4 955 3.20 GHz, Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H source Rasurbo 550w, Corsair Force Series SSD 3, HDD Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB SATA2 HD103SJ, 8 GB memory (RAM), housing Case NZXT Lexa S and 800, 850 lei for a video card but do not know what to choose, can you help me with an opinion?
    I'm thinking from: Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 6870, 1GB, GDDR5, 256bit, DVI, HDMI, PCI-E

  51. Thanks for the tutorial, I'm really going to acquire something new

  52. AdrianGudus: Ba has integrated graphics quote from a comment here gave another user who made the same statement wrong as you:
    "I do not know what you're talking about. If this is done on the knee processor when times have you read or do not know how to use ark.intel.

    I see you do not understand. No integrated graphics chip. You have not documented very well.
    link: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/intel_corei7_3820/
    If you quote: “When compared to previous generation processors, the size of the LGA 2011 chip is absolutely huge to compare to both the Socket 1366 and Socket 1155 chips. However with only four cores, no integrated graphics core, and 1.27 billion transistors on the Sandy Bridge i7 3820, the actual die size is smaller than the 3960X by about 33%, though it still retains the larger LGA 2011 package dimensions. "

    “No integrated graphics core” = no integrated graphics chip
    Deaia and so small chip size, the pill has 294mm ^ ^ 2 435 2mm from hexa-core SB-E and 1.27 2.27 billion transistors compared billion transistors.

    However the processor is very good, it's native quad-core (not a hexa-core with core disable 2 left on the pill) and is a good solution coupled with a cheap motherboard. You have some advantages over SB: 3.0 PCI-Express, PCI-E lanes galore, quad-channel, the BCLK strap allowing higher memory frequencies.

    Hello Cristi please myself something, you can make a video to help us to purchase a mini-PC, that those who do not have money for normal PC system or something smaller will not sit down in the room. I saw that pcgarage has a section such nettop systems, but honestly do not know which is good. Maybe we can help you and explain if such a system is worth buying mini-PC in favor of a system normally around the same price. I have recommended EMAG but they have only normal PCs.

  54. I have a question myself what about NVIDIA graphics cards
    on linux because the company do not provide support

Speak Your Mind
