Used for gaming, will primarily be a Star Citizen rig. OCd like a champ!
+1 For the original name.
for a beast, it is one, but buying the H100i for 120 bucks... dude you coudve saved 40$
Needed to be able to swap it out if defective before I travel internationally, so microcenter was a better option.
This will definitely be gaming like a boss +1
why pny reference? At that price whats a few dollars difference for better cooling solution? oh well, it is what it is i assume
The 780ti was a gift, and they wanted to use their Dell credit account, unfortunately they only stock PNY products.
For a small case like this you want a reference cooler anyways. The ACX sucks in closed mini cases.
I heard that in small, tight cases, it's better to use blower style coolers like this one, because it's blowing the air out of the case rather than inside the system.
Yes that is true but there is a side panel vent that allows non reference cards to easily pull air through. The side vent also allows you to mount some 120mm fans on the outside to push air directly on to the card.
I think it will be fine... GPU's can run extremely hot anyways and it's not like you need to overclock it to play your games.
Then again, no one NEEDS to overclock anything, it's just fun! :D
Haha, well I would argue that some games will require you to overclock your card to make the game perform better. I'm just saying with that card, most games are going to run perfectly already. Even still, don't worry about your card selection, it is great!
Definitely true, 280xs run pretty much everything on ultra so the 780ti will be a god among mortals :P
I'm glad you said that
+1 like this build
+1 for original well thought out name and 16gb RAM
+1 Nice little powerful system, and great price on the motherboard. How much voltage does your 4690k need to be stable at 4.6?
Can't check right now, I think it was like 1.22-1.24
iiiiiiiiii like it!
Love the build, lets compare notes sometime. I have about the same think set up in a Bitfenix Prodigy.
