Wouldn't it be the same as motherboards with embedded processors? That already works well.

There are games that will use HT, total war games, Arma, Civilization, etc. But I do agree, for gaming, an i5 is pretty much all you need.

Why the Xeon? That's way overkill for gaming.

Is it possibly a limitation of HDMI? Sometimes that gives problems with 4k.

That's a really efficient build there. Nice choice of parts.

My friend has one and he replaced the dvd drive with an SSD caddy. Does that void the warranty as well?

The cooler reminds me of Portal for some reason.

I just ask because I've got a Prodigy, and I found that really cramped as well.

The SSDs are made by Samsung, not MSI.

Very nice build, incredibly similar to mine.

That XFX card is probably the best looking one on the market right now.

Nah, it's a white LED with green plastic on the logo. You can sand off the green to make it clear.

I don't think I'll upgrade my GPU for a while. At the time it was the best card for the price, and it's more than enough power for 1080p.

Yeah, but you can't overclock them.

$50 more is twice the cost. That is out of my budget. Why are you going with a Xeon?

I was joking about the Xeon. It costs more than this build. The 5820k is probably your best bet unless you want to go with some crazy SLI setup.

What CPU are you going with? The Xeon E5-2697? 14 cores plus hyperthreading?

There's so much to change to go to X99. You'll need new RAM, a new motherboard, and a new CPU. It gets expensive very quickly.

A fix would be getting a Z77 board. I recommend this one

There are perforations in the side panel to allow air in. Like this, but in white.

Higher than 80+ Gold? Are you serious? Maybe more wattage, but the efficiency rating is very high.

It's so static gets spread out and dissipates, not concentrated in one spot where it can damage anything. The box is perfect for layout and testing.

Yeah, I did clean up the cables. The Z97i-Plus is amazing in my opinion, the BIOS loads quickly, it's easy to find things, but I haven't tried overclocking yet because I haven't bought a cooler. I was actually thinking about getting two 120mm aio coolers, like the Corsair H80, and put one of them on the GPU with one of those bracket adapters.

I have an R9 290 and have a 600W power supply, which is still too much. I could have gotten away with a 500W easily.

Yeah. The Ares III comes with the fancy case to go with the massive air cooler on it. Also it's the Asus version, not Sapphire.

I have the mobo, but I don't have the M.2. Is there any particular things I need to keep in mind when choosing one?

I think that 430W psu is actually overkill right now. That i3 barely uses any power at all.

Nah, 850W is plenty. You'd be surprised how little power the 770s actually draw, somewhere around 800W. There's a bit of room left.

Tri-Fire is a correct term meaning 3 GPUs. It is used interchangeably with Triple Crossfire.

Uh, no. You can't have 3 dual chip cards. That's six GPUs in total.
