Building another folding/crunching rig
Friday, December 23, 2011 5:42 PM
So I decided to go ahead and build another rig. This one will be compact in size, so as to not take a lot of room and can be placed more readily on a shelf. I wanted it to be as powerful as I could build for a small size and not break the wallet. The rig will feature an ITX mobo, 2600k cpu, and a GTX560 Ti. I'm still in the fine fetching of hardware, but I have done a lot of searching. Case, mobo, and PSU combo was the hardest part as they were the main deciding factor of how powerfully I could go for a small size.

Now on the mobo, I know its a H61 chipset, and I will probably not be able to take full advantage of overclocking the CPU. But ASUS's manual actually states that overclocking can be done through a ratio. Now only if that means ratio as in multipler or backclocking. Sadly, ASUS tech support is out on the holidays too, so I could not get the answer. But no worries, I planning to build it after the New Year. And if I can't overclock, at least I will have a CPU with Intel 3000 graphics.
