Description

Built this Rig over the last year for primarely for gaming. I play StarCraft 2, Battlefield 4, World of Warcraft and League of legends. This build runs all of these games flawlessly constant 60 fps on Bf4 with ultra settings though I haven't tried much overclocking yet.

One set is Corsair Vengeance, the other is G.Skill Ripjaws. It's not just you, they're different lengths :)

--EDIT-- Oops, there's no Corsair memory in there. I have no idea what the other set is, possibly 2 different G.Skill sets?

There's a pair of G.Skill Ripjaws and there's also a pair of G.Skill Ripjaws X in there.

OP should swap the middle two though. You should never mix sets of RAM, but if you must, at least make sure that you place each set in its own channel.

Judging by the heatsink design, I'd say they were all G.Skill, just two slightly different heatsink designs.

You are going crazy & should go immediately to get your eyes checked, that RAM is all the same length... I think?

Dam those speakers... Good build +1, perhaps the sound card and the extra 8gigs of ram were extra but I don't know how you use this PC other than gaming

Pretty solid build, but there are a couple things I don't agree with. I'm assuming that you started building this before Haswell came out, hence the previous gen CPU and board.

Personally, I would have probably gotten an ASUS Xonar over that HT Omega.

Lastly, I would reserve 120mm closed loop CPU coolers for small form factor m-ITX builds where space and airflow are at a premium. In mid or full towers they don't make too much sense as they don't out perform decent quality air coolers enough to justify their much higher price tags. If it were up to me, and I had to have liquid cooling, I would have either gone with an H100i, Seidon 240M, or, if you wanted something smaller, I would have found a case with a 140mm fan slot on the back and used a NZXT Kraken X40.

As I said, pretty good build all in all though.

EDIT: Also, something I say a lot on this site; don't name your rig anything with 'Beast' in the title. You can't go through two pages on this site without seeing at least one 'Beast.' It's uninspiring and frankly, lazy. If you're going to put the effort into building your own rig, you might as well put some effort into naming it as well.

I personally wouldn't have gotten an internal sound card, period. I didn't know this until very recently (I was seriously considering picking up a Xonar as my front-panel audio is ****), but sound cards don't actually do anything most on-board sound cards doesn't do already. This video was an eye opener:

I've found audio out the back is much better, because of what they mention in the video: the front-panel connector is basically a giant, interference-soaking antenna.

I agree that standalone audio is usually to be reserved for pure audiophiles (I'm a pretty big audiophile, and I'm fine with the on-board on my Sabertooth). I was just saying that ASUS make fantastic audio equipment.
