More pics please, love to see how the case looks with some guts to it.
for any given part or for the whole lot?
Thank you, I can see that it is not something that would be pressing more jut something that would be nice.
I kind of agree with this, however Asetek also makes the pumps for NZXT KRAKEN series and they are phenomenal coolers They also have 6 year warranties. I would agree with the previous model corsair AIO coolers. Since the H105 though they have used higher quality parts. I do however find it weird that the H100i GTX is Asetek and the H110i GT is not. Not to knock Cooler Master at all the nepton/seidon series are great I just have no personal experience with them.
Definitely the cleanest build I have seen on here, I am thoroughly impressed sir. Would you happen to have a build log or video anywhere to check out.
Please post your build as well.
Yeah that video is why I am considering that specific monitor, unfortunately he doesn't go in depth on gaming with it, just kind of glosses over it. I understand gaming reviews and benchmarks are not really his thing though. Still thank you for the link :)
Nice build, more pics would be nice. I am looking to do a massive upgrade soon myself and plan to purchase the same monitor you have listed here, wondering if you could give me some feedback as to your experience so far with for gaming. Any noticeable ghosting or screen tearing etc. also what kind of games do you play. thank in advance.
Excellent build, nice high quality parts, clean looks. I am looking into purchasing the same monitor as you wondering if you have any feed back for me as far as gaming performance goes.
Very nice build, any input on how your experience with the Asus PB287Q has been? I am considering this monitor as well myself. Though I feel like a traitor I am switching from my beloved AMD cards to NVIDIA this go I think.
the p2715q is ips with 8ms response time but can do a fast mode for 6ms response. with your p2415q do you notice and ghosting or delayed color shifting in games or movies? What kind of games do you play?
Sweet! Do you have any cons or bad experiences with it? I am a little worried about it being a TN panel, my current monitor is a TN and sometimes I have to change the tilt to have a good experience with it.
How are you liking the 4k monitor? Are you gaming on it, I am considering purchasing this monitor as well and looking for any feedback.
Just curious how hard it was to set up the push/pull on the radiator, did you struggle with clearance over the ram or chipset coolers? Also very nice build. Also curious how the 4k monitor is working out? I am upgrading to a 4k monitor looking at the http://pcpartpicker.com/part/dell-monitor-p2715q Dell 2715q. Feedback before I make the purchase would be great. Thanks.
Beautiful build my friend, just curious is your Rad in a push/pull set up? Also how are you liking the 780t? I am interested in this case but I am kind of leaning away from the GAMER cases with all the sharp angles and everything. Love my NZXT Phantom 530 but the look has kind of worn on me.
Nice build it seems, need more pics and some benchmarks as well some more info on what you use it for.
Great build, some more pics of course would be nice especially cable management etc. Would like to know what future plans you may have, watercooling etc. Also some benchmark info would be helpful. On a different note as I plan to do a similar build later on myself how are you liking the Asus 4k monitor and what kind of FPS are you getting in the games you are playing. Also I see some high end audio gear, do you plan on adding a soundcard and how is that sony working for you? I kind of assume the Sony negates the need for a soundcard I am rather noobish with the audio aspects hard to jump into with the prices on good audio gear.
I was curious about the 1500watts myself, the dual Titan X's does not warrant this amount of power. Even when OC'd CPU and GPU's do not warrant this. I only assume he wants plenty of wattage to add what he damn well pleases and not have to worry about if he has enough wattage. I know having a lot of fans can eat up the watts as well I have 9 in my current system I have a 1200w supply and running 3x amd's that doesn't leave me much headroom.
I disagree, the kraken x60 and x61 beat the h100i in most benchmarks. However the h100i GTX and h110 GT beat the kraken. Also in my experience the kraken is a better performer when you have a higher ambient temperature as well. Though I will add that in my next build I will purchase the H100i GTX, own use and love my x60 but the GTX is just sexy and has slightly better performance.
The case has very good airflow, however my GPU's generate a lot of heat so anything extra to pull in some cool air and push out any extra hot air I am all for. Also with more fans I can run them at lower RPM's to keep them silent.
Nice build I don't think your CPU temps are accurate though. unless the room you keep it in is already that cold or colder.
I would ask are you concerned with playing at max settings or not and in the future if you plan to add a second card for SLI or Crossfire. Also would spending an extra $100 - $300 on a card be outside your budget. By max settings I mean all the buffering and mxsaa settings with AA turned up as well. As most games have ultra settings with out hitting any of those options. The second questions is would you expect 60fps or 30fps with every setting maxxed out.
If you are wanting 60 fps with absolutely every setting on then even your 780 struggle a bit in some games, if the case you select will allow it I would get 1 770 and add sli later on which should be better performance than a single 780.
The G10 only supports 7970 and 280x with limited support. Just curious if you slapped them and all was good or did you have to order the shims mentioned by NZXT?
the 4770k can draw a lot more than just 84watts btw. There are reviews showing an OC'd 4770k 4.5ghz using about 160. Of course that being said it is still not as much as the 9590 at stock and the 9590 can of course draw more as well.
For gaming purposes it is totally true, it may be about %5 -%7 behind in some games or even more with a select few, but for gaming purposes it is pretty much right there with a 4770k. Now for most of your synthetic benchmarks the 4770k is way ahead, and most encoding it is also way ahead. However for the stated purpose of extreme gaming the 9590 is not a slouch and it fits with the theme the builder wanted. Hats off sir for your excellent build.
I plan to run 3 GPU's later on and possibly do a custom loop as well.
To head off the next possible problem, have plenty of power and extra PCIE cable with my 1200w fully modular 80+ gold PSU.
I have 7 140mm fans, 2 120mm fans 1 200mm fan. and the case has great airflow. current temps are all below 65c under full load stressing/benchmarking lower while gaming etc.
NZXT Phantom 530 plenty of room.
I don't see how this is obsolete, should be able to play most games no problem at 1080 and near max settings, new GPU and your good. I do have to say I think those scores are crazy high for this system.
Currently a 7970, plan on upgrading to a 290 or 290x later on.
If the prices ever drop down to what they are supposed to be.
Not sure on the memory needing to be a dual channel kit, but for APU's you want high speed ram. You get a very big gain in performance from the APU as a whole with high speed RAM.
Well some easy upgrades would be faster and more RAM for your build. A better and more reliable PSU, wouldn't trust the one you have at all. Obviously as you stated a new GPU would help, but your APU will work quite a bit better with the aforementioned RAM. Clean your cables up some. Interested in the APU's could you post temps and benchmarks if possible.
I deleted 1 I know of didn't do anything with the others. Not to spam but will repost build I suppose.
Great looking build, love your part selection. I have no idea where all the criticism is coming from though. I don't believe that 3 or 4 cards will be bottlenecked by your cpu. I personally think the statement is ridiculous and would love to see a reliable link to back that statement up.
Fantastic overclocks and your cables look very clean. Also +1 for your composure with the criticism you've received.
Nice build and great overclock! I only got my 4770k to hit 4.5 stable. I know Noctua fans are great, but considering you have a windowed case they are just butt ugly. When using closed loop cooling there are many debate on whether push/pull is better on the RAD. However I have not noticed a difference in either setup. I recommend using a pull method so that 1 you will hide your ugly fans and not suffer performance loss, 2 it will be easier maintenance for cleaning your RAD. As your set up now you would have to remove both fans to clean the dust off of the RAD. With a pull set up you just blow or brush it off. Nothing against your build though, looks clean and mean. Hopefully your current GPU is enough for what your doing so you can wait for the new models of GPU from Nvidia and AMD as both the 8xx series and the R9 3xx series should be out Q1 of 2014. Otherwise I belive the 290 or 780 are great choices for an upgrade.
+1 from me.
Interesting build, Can't argue with it at all. Looks good performs how you want it too, and kudos for getting what you want at that fantastic price! Just curious why that specific CPU cooler. I'll be the one to say it clean your cable management a bit otherwise I like your build
I had a similar issue when I posted my build. I would re-enter your build then save as a new name then click publish. After I did this mine showed up. Oddly though when I do a search for my build it still does not show up when I check by component. Apparently when you post your build it will go by your original save date rather than the date you post your build. Hope this helps.
Like your build I love my Phantom 530 (white) as well, it is huge but I knew that going in, even with my full ATX MOBO it makes it look small though, can only imagine how tiny your board looks in it.
Do want to get your opinion on the mouse I am considering buying Thermaltake eSPORTS mouse and keyboard specifically the Theron(white) how do you like it, how is the build quality etc.
Watch the video, outperforms the 780ti in a few things, so long as it stays around the $600 price marker it would be a better buy. Anything $650 or above then yeah get the ti.
For Nvidia cards EVGA is very solid and I would say yes the manufacturer does mattter. Do some research and see which ones are more stable or quiet depend on preferences.
I would only go with the ASUS if you are considering the Direct CU II or higher i.e. MARS edition. However MARS and ARES are pretty extreme though not foreign to this site.
Nothing wrong with MSI at all just a big fan of EVGA and ASUS products with solid warranty and customer support. Also don't forget with ASUS ROG boards and cards you can do ROG connect.
+1 for taking the pics in the snow, but also yes how did you get the GPU for so cheap. Also for better overclocks why not a slightly higher value board? Also what kind of video work are you doing and what software are you using?
Ha, I plan on building her a system as well she is upset I didn't build hers first as she plays pc games too. Did propose to her to so hopefully that settles it down. Oh and she said yes.
I looked at those coolers as well, while pricing can definitely be an issue I feel from looking at all the reviews I could find that the kraken was close enough to h100i and seidon. Also depend on the site any of them outperformed the other.
I agree the Sabertooth is an excellent choice, however I don't feel that it is "better" than the formula in any regards exception being price which is much discount.
thanks for the insight though, I have tried multiple MMO mice in the past and find I don't take advantage of the excess buttons enough and find them to be a hinderance when I play other types of games. Also I am way too lazy to switch mice for games.
I just removed the old one and completely reposted and renamed it. Nothing I tried to seemed to work, thanks for the help anyhow :)
I even commented on it just to see if that worked.
Edit: Plan on upgrading to 3 way 290's or 290xs. Offchance of 2x 780ti's
hence the over the top PSU.
yeah it shows up under my completed builds and I also saved it again.
Maybe get in contact with HeadFi or other reputable website for headphones and audio see if they are willing to work with you or lend you any data.
