Small but with a big heart... I'm not a fan of stickers on cases but you made it beautiful! This is probably one of my favorite builds.
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed :D
Thank you for the compliment! :D
No it did not. Although my processor has other problems with it that I will try to replace in the coming months with Ryzen 5. I never heard of a computer freezing up after a cooler installation.
Thank you thank you! :D LOL
It's not bad. I don't really fiddle around with it much but is alright for cheap mobo.
It's at the bottom custom part since I don't see my exact one.
I have those A2+ and HD6xx too! They're awesome! Mines are connected to a O2 Dac/Amp.
Are those the A2+ and HD6xx? :D Great build! Does the power supply affect gpu temps at all?
Without touching anything on overclocking, GPU Boost 3 boosts this card to around the high 1.9ghz. I managed to overclock it to 2.025ghz.
They are a pleasure to use.
Thanks BlueTile! I tried to make it look acceptable with a phone camera! Glad you like it.
Digging the Air 240 build (:
Them "quality" photos xD
I never knew what the difference was between the V2 and GTX.
Damn that's quite the story! Depending on how thick the radiator and fans are it can make or break!
Good to know, looking forward to it! If it fits, maybe when I get a 1080Ti I'll keep the strix in mind :D
I think it might fit but just barely as I tried to measure the 5.28in height in my case, try to send an email to Corsair just to make sure (: I tried to take the pcie express cable into consideration and now I think it might not fit...
You are welcome!
You're welcome! Any time (:
Thank you! The card is definitely worth the upgrade over a 970. Performs as expected and the temps reach high 70s while the noise level is not that noticeable at under 35% fan speed overclocked at a little over 2000Mhz and memory at 4513MHz. My room does get hot after hours of playing though.
Thanks for the compliment! I got the motherboard from Microcenter as open boxed. For headphones, I would take the DT 990s over the other 3 for sound quality. I also like the HD598s for it's detachable cable that I use on the go. Not really sure about the MDR 1R but they look quite expensive. As for insight, I would replace stock fans if money isn't an issue. If you have any questions feel free to message me!
Glad I can be of service! Thanks!
Hmm I'm no expert at streaming but considering these parts, they are more than capable for streaming. Look into it a bit more but I've seen streamers stream with less powerful parts than these. Feel free to ask me anything else I reply quickly!
If it's just those games, you could probably save money and go for the cheaper cards like the RX 480 or July 7th's GTX 1060. Those games don't take too much gpu power other than getting the 144fps on Overwatch. Just my suggestion xD
Yes you will be fine with that monitor as well as any other 144hz monitor. This monitor also has G-Sync so it'll help with tearing but at a price increase compared to ones without it. As for CS:GO running on a GTX 1070, you won't have to worry about frame dips because CS:GO isn't a very graphic intensive game. Is that the game you'll be spending the most time on?
In my opinion I don't think it is at all because I do enjoy my games at higher refresh rates. For example, I play Overwatch at 144+ fps maxed out and then I scaled it to higher resolutions around 60fps and I didn't enjoy it as good. Same goes for some other games. Each persons' preference may vary :)
My friends that come over always say that haha xD thanks!
Yeah I don't think it is possible because of the taken space where the front rad is. Thanks for the compliment though! I always wanted to add fans on the bottom.
This build is simply amazing. Especially the work put into the cable length!
The soundstage is definitely greater on the DT990s. I prefer them over the HD598s and replaced them as my daily drivers. I use my 598s for on the go or when I'm not on the computer. The DT990s are binded to my comp. I recommend them!
Once you get the 1070, update with some more pics! I'll be glad to peek!
That's quite the upgrade! BenQ is by far my favorite brand for monitors. Good to see you having some!
I got it off Ebay. Factory refurbished. No deal pixels. Never ever saw another one listed for that low price anymore :) I am truly grateful...
I still scream at the high price tags xD I try to find em for cheap. I paid $184 for my dac/amp got it for lucky steal!
I love NCASE M1 builds! I hope to acquire one in the near future!
The DT990s are amazing! I power them with O2 Dac/Amp from JDS Labs and my ears are spoiled... Love em, recommend them. iPhone 5 powers them good too at just above half volume if that answers your question.
No issues with height indeed! I love white cases! Can't really adore black too much. As for which card, they all look good to me in the end but what about to you? Thanks for the comments!
No p-problem~ Hope you f-find what you are searcccching for! .^
The post itself lacks I agree. My first one was a novel of why I chose each part and I didn't feel like including it in here. Didn't think I'd get featured xD Thanks for your opinion!
I just uploaded some poor quality pics via iPhone 6+ because I do not own a time freezer saver. Enjoy :)
"Size doesn't mean everything." :D Thanks!
Thanks! They are really amazing!
Great suggestion but I actually like the hint of red paired with black and white. Maybe it's too much for you :3
That happened to me while bidding on a BenQ XL2411z twice, then one morning staying up til 6am I saw a listing of the 2420G for $218 and immediately purchased it. Now I love G-Sync.
Well I waited until 9am on June 10 without sleep and kept refreshing the EVGA website and then I added it in my cart and checked out. All while the site was crashing I somehow managed to get one!
Much appreciated it SomeJoker!
