Military, pennies because that's the amount of clearance between my desk and PC (there's empty space above it so it doesn't block airflow), the extras (killer ethernet) that came with my last MSI board didn't work and I actually had to spend money on a work around due to it.
Also thanks :)
WD Black's are nice. The 760's are coming down in price, about $250. then in the low end of the 300s is the king of 1080p gaming the 770. Corsair, cougar and coolermaster are some good alternatives for fans. And the psu will be fine as long as you don't put a 280x in it
we've all said it elsewhere already as well, no need to repeat ourselves
Still don't understand people buying 4gb gpus when they have 1 screen
Nice build, great choices all around and a score on the 660, upgrade that and maybe the psu and you'll have a great time with new titles. Also will need more storage I'm sure, lots of great 500gb - 1tb drives available.
That was my previous EVGA gtx 770 SC, The 780 ti is what I'm upgrading to. It's the first thing mentioned in description. And thank you
He will. I would wait for the 880 since the 770 is great all on its own
I asked before you had a description. Thank you for adding one though. If you didn't have the money for a 2 way titan you could've done crossfire amd RX 290/x, just reviewing them you can look for the cream of the crop, also EVGA announced EVGA 780 6gb so you could've gotten a single 780 then stepped up and bought another for Sli and that would've been a great alternative to a Titan Black at probably a similar price. Of course this is still overkill for a single 1080p display, if you ran triple monitor with Sli 780 6gb cards it would run phenomenally. Trust me I've done my homework and you should do some more so you really get the best performance for your money, which it seems you have enough to spend.
I guess I need to look back into these since I don't need a $100 amp then, thank you very much :D
Why not a titan black?
so the sound comes thru on usb instead of a line in?
Do you use an amp for the A2's? if so what one, and hows the bass? I trust a review from here more than anywhere else. Also nice clean build :)
I know it isn't... But that dog looks so photoshopped in there. I used my Case box as a base for my pc
Not sure why you have the PCI ethernet, motherboard comes with ethernet. 800W PSU seems a little much. Not to mention the motherboard itself you could've saved on by going with something else. All these could've probably gotten you a 760/770. But it does look nice and you say you're satisfyied with it, should run battlefield medium settings
It's already been said but that power supply is pretty bad news. Maybe its just bad luck but its probably just best to avoid it. The Corsair CX600M is a good replacement, a little more than the one you have but semi modular. But overall it looks solid, the 750ti is always a pleasure to see, not afraid of windows 8, and your cables are well managed as well :)
Backtrack? quit stealing neighbors wifi, its already mine
Touche then. I'll keep that in mind, I'll need to check my sources. Thank you
It helps to read the description
Maybe because it's not your money and because he's going to use the gpu for any video processing and he wanted a cool cpu that he wouldn't have to mess with to get solid overclocks, also I don't see an aftermarket cooler listed so he may not overclock. Phrase as a question instead of being critical of him not spending money on something he may not want/need
That's exactly how I'd use 3 mismatched monitors, and I did, when I had them. If you're willing to wait for 800 series then I would, I'm already set in the 700's with my 780ti hahaha, sli or die. Or if you can't wait find out if the AMD Powercolor 290x fits in your case if you want to save money, it is the ONLY AMD 290 series I would recommend, purely based on reviews and videos.
That's a picture of a mouse, and I didn't know that Razer used that style of mousewheel for this mouse, 1 drop and its done if one of those rollers breaks off. Every mousewheel I've ever had a problem with has had this exact design.
That case is really a re-branded Superflower SF-2000, I knew it looked familiar. Boo for unoriginality AZZA
Looks good, motherboard could've been toned down a bit to resell the 660 for a 770, would've been a better gaming experience. I've gotten +60fps on bf4, cod ghosts (ewww I hate I bought it) and farcry 3 when things weren't on fire. A nod towards your observations of windows 8, people are just neophobic, it's truly faster and all around better if you get rid of Metro, But I use it for a few things because its made for fullscreen, like alarm clocks and stuff. The common tragic 3 mismatched monitors :/ +1 from me, nobody can hit you on cable management due to the ITX nature :P
EDIT: I must've read over your suggestion for gpu upgrades~ While I would recommend a 770 if you can hold on for another say 8 months maxwell will be coming out maybe, power saving and performance boost is a sure thing for them, I would buy the mid tier card, which will probably be an 870, But if you want it to be strong for a while look at the 780 or if you want to try the AMD route I've heard GREAT things about the AMD Powercolor 290x, I'm just not sure it will fit in the ITX case.
Great as always philip, so eye appealing and all around great
I had the turtle beach P22's, I returned them as soon as possible for some Steelseries Siberia's. They just suck. Steelseries is having a 20% of sale right now I believe, look into it
I used electrical tape on my wires, works but might start coming off after a while
yes, you go to the MSI Program that comes on the disk, should be under mmory profiler. Select the memory profile for 1887mhz or 667mhz. Click apply and that should do it. I'd give you more specifics but I'm away for a while.
Looks a little unplanned inside there, cables wise, clean them up a bit
More overclocking headroom maybe? Haswell doesn't have the best potential from a numbers standpoint. I doubt that's what he has in mind though
The epicness of Microcenter is strong with this build
I have almost completed my computer, held onto my 770 for a bit so I could just stack some more cash and get necessities than did step-up for the 780 ti. I'd appreciate it if you look at my build when it pops up again on the completed builds section. Should be about 3 weeks from now since I'm going home for a while :) I'm also going to fix a couple things I messed up on my personal build
EVGA life, my 780 ti is inbound due to their fabulous offers, not to mention a 5 year warranty. Now if only they made a cheaper mobo, larger case, and a cpu cooler that was neck and neck with the CM 212 EVO :)
Nice build, tight cable management, Corsair Dominator ram, love the 3770k, should've looked into a 750G PSU from EVGA since they're a gamers best friend and you should give them money :D I have the same headphones, and they are amazing. Great Build
EVGA Power supplies are the best :D I can see there's not much you can do with those cables :/ probably would've had the same performance in a 750 ti if you overclocked a little, they do it so well!
No, it doesn't.
+1 for 750 ti, so cute. You made it look nice with the H440
Yay for storm enforcer! +1 Clean build
I was just showcasing what supplies all my power
Well it's not like you can say I'm wrong. Cranked one up to 100% and I laughed at my friend, he didn't hear me.
Carpets spawn dust bunnies, they'll be in your computer if you don't set on something that isn't made of carpet
Very nice build, Almost wish I'd used a full tower so my own NZXT Hue fit better and more fans, can never have enough, ever. The problem with full tower is that cables aren't long enough and cable management suffers :/ The Corsair fans are pretty mainstream, but because they're soooo good. Power supply as noted will need an upgrade with your wanted upgrades. Love the watercooling, wish I trusted it. Motherboard is great, we both know that haha, reviews were wrong it works like a charm.
Nice build, bad cable management.
Get it off the carpet, put a base down and then put it on that.
You can't put the dvd drive in there but you can buy a nice enclosure for it and snag a sata to usb cord and then it wouldn't be abandonded.
Honestly no, especially with overclocking but as long as he doesn't go full load it should power his rig. There's too much power drain from all his components to power it full load, you can thank the 290x for that. I would replace it with a 650w+ right away.
If you had actually shown the Oculus Dev Kit I might not have downvoted for the fact that you have one but I don't see it, In fact I don't see much. This is what imageshack (or w/e people use for picture hosting nowadays) is for. Not to mention the pretty much complete lack of Description, just copy and past from your comments. Also you mentioned NOT overclocking one of the single best overclocker CPU EVER... I'll leave that there.
It's time for some air dusting, show it some love. Nice build
I really don't. It does't affect my overall internal temperatures till it hits +60C and even then its only 1-2C. I usually turn my front intake up to push more air across the gpu (I have removed the Harddrive Cage) I honestly need to reseat my cooler but it's fine for now. Also the MSI Command tool makes it so easy to overclock, I've pushed it to 4.4ghz but never went full load since I know my limitations with air. Right now I just run it at 4Ghz. And thanks :)
It slants slightly towards the front, mine does the same thing, but doesn't hurt it, its just silly.
