being a jack of all trades and expert at none, hysterical.gif

I am now thinking of adding both controllers the NZXT Sentry LX for the display of temps and control of the fans on the rad.
i think each fan takes 1.3 watts, so should be able to connect 2 to a channel with safety(not sure how i can read 2 fans speed with only 1 channel yet, might have to use just 1 fan control wire to read/control each set of push/pull fans to stop/start and for the speed control)

and the Sunbeam Rheobus Extreme for control of the pump and case fans.

lots of control options with using both just a question on how to best use them. idontknow.gif

also i think it will look great with both....... hysterical.gif

Were I to get both and use strong fans, I'd hook the fan power up to the Rheobus Extreme and split the RPM leads off to go to the Sentry. It'll take some extra fan plugs and some solder, but if you want to do it right, that's what it'll take. It might not even take solder...you could use a tool to remove the RPM barb and then just plug it into a spare fan plug, like Navig did here. You could also control two fans from one Rheobus channel, and split the leads off to two separate channels on the Sentry; they'd be controlled in tangent but you could see each fan's RPM.

Keep in mind though that as you increase the number of fans, so increases the system's noise output.

Unless your going to use the full fire power of the Evga board (and it hasn't impressed me that much yet) or it has things you need that the Jiga board doesn't.
I'd save the almost £130 and look at the Gigabyte EX58-UD3R.

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Mother...?ProductID=2989

Seems to fit your bill, at a much better price.

That looked like that might be a good one too Deanzo.
What about the slots?
Do you think that the PCI slot arrangement will meet the requirements of his add on cards?

My 550pro TV cards would fit like that, and they are still a good size card.

I cant see why two wouldn't fit.

@ Terry, what two TV cards are you using ?

1's a hauppauge nova t-500 dual tuner and the others an avermedia dvb-t 771 I think.

both will fit in the pci slots no problem i think, also at a future date if i update them to pci-e x1 cards i will be able to use the slots above the graphics card.

great choice for me i think, Thanks. beer.gif

ok thought i could wait but seems i'm to excited about my new build(yes even us oldies get excited tongue.gif ) and want to start ordering some of the parts... hysterical.gif

so can i order :-

case :- http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct....rodid=CA-156-CM

power supply :- http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct....rodid=CA-013-CS

cpu :- http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct....rodid=BU-002-IN

motherboard :- http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct....rodid=MB-159-GI

memory :- http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct....rodid=MY-168-CS

hard drive :- http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct....rodid=HD-226-WD

(these parts are my Christmas present from my parents, smile.gif )

also i thought if i build it with stock heatsink i will have some reference for temps when i get the watercooling and start ocing.

or is there still something better, cheaper, i should buy instead??

Seems good, but I'd lean towards a PC Power & Cooling PSU:

The case is pretty much a matter of personal taste.

The rest seems like a good choice.

I'm not so sure that they can get PC POWER & COOLING over there.

Of course they can.

That's one of the few good things about OCZ buying PC Power & Cooling. They're available everywhere. whistling.gif

*cromelex looks down to his sig and points at his TX650*

That's a Corsair, isn't it? wink.gif

It IS working perfectly.

I like both Corsair and PC Power & Cooling.

I'd stop liking Corsair if my PSU blew up. Until it does, I'm happy beerchug.gif

well i did look at the pc power and cooling supply before :- http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct....0Power%20Supply

but i decided to get the Corsair :- http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct....Compliant%20PSU

only because it's 850watts compared to the 750watts of the pcpc supply.

i used a link in one of Chuck's topics to see what this system is going to use and it calculated something like 960 watts plus oc'ed.(can't remember exact figure might of been as high as 1060 watts)

well i know its not going to be that high(especially with only 1x hd3850 graphics card) still i thought i'd better play safe go with the 850watt supply(you never know might go xfire in future) but if you think the pcpc 750watt will last longer and is enough juice for this system then i'll get that and save £6. beer.gif

like i said earlier you tell me what to buy and i'll try and do a good job of putting it together, hysterical.gif

It's not the WATTS it's the AMPS but that's OK because both of those are high-amp single rail PSUs, if the specs were right on the CORSAIR.
NOOOOOOOOOOOO PROBLEM!
