Description

Hi PcPartpicker comunity. I am here with a low res centered gaming and light video editing build. It is running with an older 1680x1050 monitor. It is a work in progress build. I live in europe, so keep that in mind when looking at the prices.

Goals for this Build: *play BF4 on a 64player map on ultra 55fps+

*run skyrim (my little brother is a big fan of that game)

*edit and render gameplay footage.

*look sleek

PARTS:

*CPU:

Gets the job done pretty well, easy to overclock, does not throttle in any game, even during a demanding BF4 64Player match CPU utilisation peaks at max 70% and temps do not go higher than 62 degrees under a typical game load. I also chose this over the i3 because it has more threads to work with when rendering.

*MOTHERBOARD:

Able to overclock, usb3, looks pretty ,nothing more to say. Gets the job done.

*MEMORY:

8gb, overclocked to 1600mhz, I am happy with it.

*STORAGE:

As soon as i got the case, the first thing i did was to uninstall the ugly plastic HDD cage. Why you might ask. It is because 240gb is more than i will ever need on a gaming computer. My important stuff is on the cloud or on a external HDD. The SSD I have got works just fine, it surely is not the fastest out on the market, but it gets the job done.

*GPU:

Maxes any game you throw at (and looks good while doing it) it at this resolution but kicks out quite a lot of heat. The good thing about it is, that it stays pretty quiet under load. I have bought the card already used. As much as i love this card I will be forced to upgrade in the near future due to the fact, that it kicks out so much heat, that it drastically impacts the temperatures of other components.

*CASE:

It makes my pc look unsuspicious. It is like a define r4 for poor people. It has good cable management, looks sleek, and nobody will notice, that there is a gaming pc inside. Love it.

*PSU:

Thermaltake Berlin 630w, deadsilent at idle but audible under load. Works fine, stable.

*MISC:

I also have built in a fan controller that controlls the front intake fans, it even shows the fan rpm and has temp sensors Noctua cpu fan: it is just temporary, i probably will put it into the psu and replace with the industrial version just because max1500rpm does not cut it, and it also looks like poo.

BENCHMARKS:

3dmark firestrike preset: ca. 4800p (you can look it up in the results name is buttkix)

!Keep in mindn that i am not running a full 1080p monitor!

*Maxes metro 2033 redux at 60fps constant (physx on)

*maxes borderlands runs fine maxed 60fps (physx on) with some ocasional dips to the 50fps range

*BF4 Ultra 64 player map. silky smooth 60-55

If there are any open questions, feel free to ask. I will also be happy to get constructive feedback.

Not bad. A decent build with a Corsair 200R is a +1 for me!

Thanks, it is made out of a toilet paper roll and electrical tape, just like any other good invention.

Thought that was duct tape and zipties? Eh, electrical tape is the duct tape of the electronics world

Yeah, the GTX 580 is an extremely heavy card. No exception in this case, even if it is a triple slot card

Great build, PSU seems a bit overkill but leaves room for upgrades. +1

Great build. In a year or two, maybe swap the GPU for something a little newer (methinks a 285 would be great, or maybe the 960 when it comes out), but still a solid build.
