Description

It was a long over due of saving money for this build. It had to be Watch Dog ready running at max with no problems. But in the meant time it was to replace my old PC i build many years ago. This is just my everyday use and gaming.

I have a nice ASUS VN247H-P 24 to go with this nice built i brought a month ago, shocking to see the price went up, lucky me.

Since i got Logitech Z313, its not on my desk yet due to no space to plug it in smh. Im going to need to buy new surge protector with 10 or 12 outlets.

CPU: I went with i7 4770k instead of i5 4670k. Will be keeping stock speed.

CPU Cooler: Went with popular cooling Hyper 212 EVO and its doing its job good. Took me awhile figuring how to install it then end up watching youtube video for help lol.

Motherboard: I was choosing between Asus Pro or Gigabyte UD4H, then end up going for Gigabyte since my friend was picking that board for his build.

Ram: Just liking how Vengeance LP looks.

Memory: Got my OS on SSD and storage on HHD

Video Card: I had in mind going for GTX 770 at first then end up going with GTX 780 to last me on the long run.

Case: Just love how awesome the C70 case looks.

PSU: Corsair CX750M or EVGA SuperNOVA NEX750B, end up picking EVGA just to keep red theme going.

OS: No problem with installing Windows 8.1

Keyboard / Mouse: Since there was no M40 at the Microcenter store, i end up getting M65 and went with Raptor K40 for multicolors setup.

Side note: The build is not complete just yet, i plan to replace the case fan with red LED's

05/03/2014 - So i added Corsair AF 140 white LED fans at the top. Changed the front blue LED fans and back exhausted fan that came with the case with Corsair AF 120 red LED fans.

Oh what are some good benchmark programs i can download so i can post?

Amazing build for the price sir. Since you are not overclocking, you could have saved a few more bucks and gotten a locked CPU and a H87 or H81 chipset motherboard. However, since you got a K series CPU and a Z87 chipset motherboard, give overclocking a shot. You might have yourself a golden CPU on your hands.

Also, from what I have heard, Z87 has some other golden features other than overclocking

I liek your paret choices! First off let me say I love the case, if I had to choose a case for ti's looks and for the way you can build in it I would give the prized to the C70. I like the cable magament too! The oine thing I don't like is the blue fan that is on the front and I don't like the way the cables look on that PSU, of course not your fault but the 24 pin and all the cables might look really nice alll black. I would change that but a nice build nonetheless. Have fun with it!

It's your choice but I think it might look awesome with no fans and maybe place some LED strips for a fainmt glow. Your choice.

nice part choices, but just one question... why the z87 board and the unlocked CPU and the hyper 212 evo for no overclock? You have all the tools you need, it just seems like a shameful waste of funds to not do so...

  • 65 months ago

It not a waste of a funds for me. Just to have options down the road.

If you saying it sagging a bit, i going to move the cord to upper slot so it hold it up better

  • 65 months ago

i wouldnt worry about it, it isnt sagging enough to be a concern.. infact... its barely even sagging at all.

Cable management is good could be alittle better but its good none the less.
