RAM prices in general for this generation have been pretty bad, but 184$ for 8 GBs is alot
the same thing happen to my CM Seidon 120M :(
I dont know what im more blown away by,
that amazing looking case
or the price of the 980ti O.o holy s***
regardless, nice build!
i7 bottleneck?? there's old sandy bridge i7 that could still live up to today standards
Simple, powerful, clean, and awesome to look at well done.
I feel if the motherboard offers so much OC potential then why not push the speeds a bit and pair it with a 280? the motherboard seems extreme for a budget gaming rig atleast
Defiantly no chance of bottlenecking with this budget gaming rig atleast, but yeah, that motherboard is a bit pricey for sure
Pretty awesome that case can fit such a powerful card in that little space, great build
Why? it's sufficient for that GPU, well I guess it could've been better
Great job getting that CPU to 4.8GHz but isn't that load temp a little too high??
+Black and Red color scheme, 4790k ,2-way SLI EVGA 970s, Cat
Great build, however, you should consider getting a custom loop and just hooking all those components to one loop if you really want water cooling. Could free more room in your case
this comment confuses me...I would never be able to ask my pops for this much money D:
sweet build though, and great cable management
Damn i wish i had to two GPUs and Water cooling to put in my first build haha, I had to wait a bit just to get dedicated graphics hah. Looks pretty sweet though, I would kill for a 970, but i would rather just get a second 770 ha
dammmmnnn that case is sweet, yeah cable management can be annoying, I feel like no matter how much i try I can never get the perfect cable management. Oh yeah, im too jealous of your dual 770s, i have to wait to get my second one to replace my cpu and mobo after i messed up my board overclocking..
great build ha, if you ever get bored, you should try to paint those heat spreaders on the RAM white hah. +1
I the simplistic look of the case but the mass amount of power on the inside. +1
holy s***, it's like a mix of old school and new school batman haha. too sweet +1
Awesome bulid, I would do something similar with my build...if i didnt suck at building T-T hahha +1
Thanks! Corsair is a pretty reliable choice too, this is probably my second PSU from them I've bought, and both of them are still running fine
That case looks like a storm trooper hah, Nice job getting the EVO and the 260X for those prices
MSI is great! G.skill is always a nice choice. I had a similar scare with my first build. It would power on and power off, and I wasn't able to figure it out till i plugged in the mic on my motherboard...turns out my RAM wasnt plugged in all the way hah
That CPU a sweet choice the integrated graphics is more then good enough for an htpc and playing LoL. I read an article on it's release but had already bought the A10-5800k that was on sell...
hah yeah, I was trying to replicate the most common airflow set up with desk fans lol
That processor still seems like a downgrade, but with the dedicated graphics I guess it wouldnt matter much for gaming
yeah dude.. you could've got a 980 for that price
a 4GB 980 for CS:GO!?!
69.99 for an A10-6800k....i spent 95$ on a A10-5800k
why do i suck at life?!?!?!?! :( Excellent build though, my friend always talks of "Ghetto rigging" he's own case but you actually did it!
Whoa, besides the customer support for the company, all the reviews were fairly acceptable. The most i was expected was the psu alone to die, Luckly, due to the really high temperatures, i havent been using this rig too much. Thanks for the reply, I defiantly consider upgrading soon.
if you were still curious, actually stumbled on another 16400 DPI mouse
Im looking forward to have two fans mounted on a Fat a** heat sink haha
Yeah, i was a bit hesitant at first but, i really wanted a black & red mmo mouse and it was for a good price
yup ha, the included software lets you have multiple profiles and adjust dpi so I usually switch between 16400 and 6450 to fight off annoying mouse acceleration within menus while im gaming. The software also lets you lower the mouse pointer speed within windows (though you can do this without the program) so i can browse the web etc at 16400 DPI but in game i have to lower the in-game sensitivity.
thats excellent RAM for the price, great work
XDDD yeah, I use it on the lowest sensitivity and I feels pretty smooth compared to my 5600 dpi naga, plus it way cheaper then the razer and still and excellent mmo mouse.
:O, I've heard great things about the cooling
That case looks really nice, and the pci-e network adapter is convenient, how do you keep you cpu so cool?
Love the case, I would love to test out an EVGA card
Powerful and affordable :D, I think that processors is locked however, but it would still do well without overclocking
yes, your comment is much appreciated, it took me months to years of planning this build ha
i know what you mean, it can dry my eyes out even on low X)
yeah, my PSU fan almost never turns on because of me using half wattage.
Yeah, I got a bit lazy with the cleaning, I was probably going to re upload some cleaner picture, for the cables, i will have to wait to get the extensions for the 3 pin fans, so i can hide them better, but overall the fan controller makes it really messy.
mah mods, skyrim in heavy demanding areas take up almost all my VRAM to the point of crashing time to time, a second card over more VRAM would probably be just as beneficial. I also really wanted a triple monitor set up but i currently don't have the space on my desk
It's big, and fairly heavy, if you wire the pci-e cables above the card you can lessen the sag a bit, besides that it's a great card, the fans get pretty loud on higher loads but that can be adjusted with the asus' GPUtweak program.
I knooow, I've been wanting to buy the cooler master EVO
Its not the top line SSD drive but it was definatly an improvement from hdd
