Description

I pretty much use this rig for gaming, video editing, and basic internet browsing. I have had almost no problems with this machine yet. The one problem I have had is that the witcher 3 crashes when graphics settings are maxed out, easy fix. Any other game and it can handle it like a champ. Not the quietest but I use headphones so I cant really hear it when Im sitting right next to it. Easy to build, all parts arrived quickly and all worked.

Is your MSI 980 being held up with plastic ties ? I had the issue with mine being on a slight lean but i have left it .

I was wondering what you meant until I saw the daisy chain of cable ties! that must of been leaning hard if they had to do that.

hi, can you check out my build and give me some feedback?

I have the 450D. I love the case. I would have gotten the 750D, but it seemed too large for my personal use. However, I notice you have the front off. Is that to improve the airflow? Try seeing if Corsair can let you purchase just the front piece. They now have the 750D High Airflow Edition. It is the 750D, but with the front panel/fan cover as the 450D.

Here is the site for the kit/front panel

I like the colors of the build. And I see the zip ties are there to help prevent the card sag. Hmmmm, have you thought about making something that looks pretty inside the case? Maybe a colored Wire or something? That way, if you ever need to remove the GPU, you don't have to cut a zip-tie or two?

Its a nice build but you could've done better on the memory.

1600MHz and 2400MHz barely affects FPS in games. Yes he could have done better but it doesn't really matter. The motherboard he bought was overpriced and the fans are way expensive as well.. But I guess he was paying for the looks ;p

Oh and getting a 2TB hard disk instead of a 1TB would have been waaaaay cheaper in comparison.

I think that he means is that for less money he could have gotten the SAME RAM specs, and avoided the stupid tall Corsair heatsinks.

That is indeed, thank you for saying it for me

It's better to turn the bottom fan around because it's sucking the cool air you get from the front down and out of your computer in which way your components don't profit much from the decent fans you got. I think this is done in general but the way I do it is use the front and bottom as an in and use the top and back of your case as an out.

I'll switch it around, thanks for the input!

So you plan on overclocking I see, assuming that because your CPU Cooler is Liquid

Hi sorry to bother ya but was wondering,will i need to do the same with my GTX 970? I mean do that daisy chain you did to prevent sag on my system once I get the MSI Z97A Gaming 7?

Or could it be that the 980 is heavier than the 970?

Just curious.

im sure the 970 is a little lighter, but i dont think its much lighter. And its up to you if i want to, its not a necessity. Pretty sure you can also get a back plate if you want.
