Arrow Q6600 build is here yaaaay (lots of pics)


BACK FROM THE DEAD!!! First upgrade in about 6 years i'm glad i skipped the expensive AMD X2 era. Luckily i had ordered it from newegg on the same day they removed the NYC taxes saved 100$ ^__^. Spent months on research for quality best bang for buck long lasting parts not to mention coupon codes and combo discounts . Here's the specs on my budget Q6600 build: following pics then OC's



Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz = 180$
ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel = 100$
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) = 80$
HIS Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit = 165$
CORSAIR 520HX Modular PSU = 90$
Antec Three Hundred Mid tower Case = 60$
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB SATAII 16MB Cache= 59$
Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB SATAII 32MB Cache = 79$
SAMSUNG 22X DVD Burner Black SATA SH-S223F = 20$
HP Photosmart C5280 MFC / All-In-One Color Printer = 60$
HP w2207H 22" Widescreen with Glossy/ S-PVA / Dynamic contrasting Panel / HDMI / HDCP = 270$
XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler =35$
XIGMATEK ACK-I7751 Retention Bracket = 7$
ARCTIC COOLING ACCELS1 Rev 2 VGA Cooler = 30$
iCEMAT 2nd Edition BLACK Mouse Pad = 23$
2 x S-Flex SFF21F 120mm Fan
4 x Yate Loon DS12SL-12 Low Speed 120mm Fan
1 x Yate Loon DS14SL-12 Low Speed 140mm Fan
3 x UV S-ATAII connectors (green)
7 x Rubber fan Sound / Vibration damping mounts
1 x Bag of UV Zip Ties (green)
1 x Sunbeam 6 Channel 30w each Black Fan Controller
1 x Logsis UV CCFL mini tubes


Total ~ 1,200$




they weren't kidding when they said AS5 setteled this tube is about 2 years old lol. I still used it though shook it up for like 30 mins



Removing the stock HD4850 Heatsink & Fan....i can see why people gets such high temps those thermalpads are about 1/2 inch in hight!!!



My Accelero S1 Rev2 is the incompatible version that won't fit the HD4850 due to one of the heatpipes will lay on one of the Ramsinks. To fix it i put 1 low profile zalman ramsink in that following spot and on the Vregulators you see and that's it, its compatible now!....also the included voltage regulator sink included did not fit i just used some low profile ramsinks laying around (OC / Zalman)



setup on the voltage regulators



Heres all the ramsinks setup right before putting on the accelero.



Here you can see how if you would of used the bigger ram sinks included it would cause the entire heatsink to be unbalanced of the GPU Die causing high temps or even damage it!




UV zip ties FTW i have an S-Flex SFF21F 120mm mounted on with a rubber noise damping kit installed on the base of the fan.



2 x Yate Loon DS12SL-L 120mm Fan + 2 x rubber sound / vibration damping mounts on the front of the Antec 300 both as intake



Installed the corsair HX-520 upside down so fan will be upwards (the PSU mount is on the bottom of the antec 300) also a rubber PSU sound / vibration damping kit installed

spent about 3 days trying to hide all the wires its insanly hard to manage wiring in this case

.




the outside



ran into a problem the Accelero S1 Rev2 is so big the 120mm fan could not fit inside lol had to mount it outside -_-'



this thing is way to bright



Logitech G11 + Logitech G5 + iCEMAT Black = heaven



HP w2207H 22" HDMI Widescreen LCD with Glossy / S-PVA / Dynamic contrasting Panel.



Now for the OC'ing



I don't know if i want to go higher its gettings close to 60c!!!. The Accelero is working really good considering alot of people on stock would get 80c ^__^

Q6600 G0 @ 3.4GHz @ 1511 FSB (9 x 378) 1.35v
Idle - 43c
Load - 58c

HD 4850 @ 700MHz / 1150GHz
Idle - 32c
Load - 40c

GSkill PC8000 4GB @ 504MHz (1008MHz)
@ 3:4 @ 2T-5-5-5-15



Benches
3DMark06 = 14,431
3DMark05 = 19,847
3DMark03 = 46,820
3DMark01 = 48,132



Oh yea the whole thing is dead silent with all the Yate Loon / S-Flex fans the loudest thing is the 500GB seagate loading....one thing though the S-Flex is superior to the Yate Loon in terms of noise / CFM. But considering the price the yate loon wins for only 4$ a peice vs 15$ S-flex's !!! the corsair psu's fan spins very slowly and can't be heard even when your ear it on it. Silent gaming is a luxury :=D




comments? questions? ^__^
