So this is my second build. My first one was back in 09 with a quad core. Now in this build I'm using it for recording gaming and my own personal home theater. I will upload pics of my full setup, right now everything is messy. So far I have installed GTA IV and recorded at a stable 50-60 fps maxed at 1080p. I've rendered one video at 10m long at 1080p at 30fps and it took about 15 minutes or a little more.
So its been a few months since I got this thing built. I cant be more happier with the performance of this beast. Games and Movies look so crisp on my 4k TV, it does really good under heavy load. Ive only had one blue screen and that was from GTA V with some bug problem but its fixed now. I can run any game out there MAXXED 1080p 60fps+, and run 4k at high/ultra at 50+ fps. I can not wait to buy my other 970 for SLI. If you guys want to check out some games from me on the beast check out my youtube https://www.youtube.com/user/drifter5064 So far I have one 4k video...my internet takes a beating trying to upload one so thats why I havnt really uploaded any.
Thanks for looking at my post
So far im very impressed with stock cooling on this CPU under load. I cant wait to get the H100i to really put it to the test!
LOVE IT. Cant go wrong with this cpu cooler. Keeps the cpu cool under OC and load.
This board was only intended for the Optical out. Everything else on it was a bonus. The reason why I chose is only I support Asus and their products. So far im happy with this mobo....OH and I must say the BIOS is great for OC VERY user friendly!!!!
Who said 16gb is to much memory? Well I always prepare for the future and since I was going all out why not 16gb. Im happy with the performance and I see a difference in the speed of this ram. I came from 8gb ddr3 800mhz? to this and hands down I recommend it...also it goes great in different colors!
Its a SSD what else can I say. With windows 7 installed a reboot is like 5 sec. Sometimes I dont even see the ASUS logo and see the Windows logo for like 3 sec. GET ONE IF YOU DONT HAVE ONE!!!!!
Simple HDD. Deff faster than the Sata 2 :P
So this card. My first card after a 500 series. I know right I was behind. So this card is pretty STEALTH if you ask me. When on idle like now the fans do not spin until I think its at 40c but im not 100% sure. This card makes no noise period and looks sexy. I will for sure put another in for SLI. Good job ASUS!!!
At first I wanted a show case....then after I looked at some others that used this one and I just fell in love. I love how much space is in this thing and the cable management is GREAT. There is so much to say I cant say it all. If you ask me this is a show case and its worth it!!!
Well I havnt had any problems out of this PSU and id say its a good one. It came with many cables more than I needed and very easy to install.
Wireless Network Adapter
A network card is a network card to me. Works good.
For a cheap pack like this im happy with it. Very stylish and love the back lit keyboard. Only thing it needs its own light button.
