Yeah, I tried overclocking with my CX600M when I first built my pc with a 4790k and my computer just kept shutting down. Only staying at stock speeds was when it stopped. Really regret skipping out on a psu.
Nice build! Literally saw this on instagram a minute ago.
Nice build man. Parts chosen are really solid. Let us know about the performance of that 390 please, it seems like a beastly card.
Nice build. Great processor, awesome psu, good gpu, and a decent mother board that'll get the job done.
The SSD is meh. Compared to a standard mechanical hard drive, it's very fast. However, you could've gotten a Sandisk SSD PLUS 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive for about 3 dollars cheaper (I know it isn't much but ya know anything that saves money is a plus, at least for me) that offers better performance. Great build overall though!
This build is bottlenecked, but OCing should close a small part of that gap. HOWEVER, a DUAL CORE, even running at maximum OC speed will not even be able to get the 970 to its full potential. The 970 is power hungry (and I don't mean wattage wise). Sure they'll "run fine", but you will not get to experience it's full capacity.
This is a very nice build, but the PSU was a very bad choice. The CX and CXM series are tier 4 PSUs and aren't very reliable. If you have the money, switch over to an EVGA G2 series psu. Overall though, good job on the build.
Yeah, they have insane prices. Probably the #1 reason for it being number 5 on the list of most expensive places to live.
The EVGA G2 PSU series has gotten a 9.6/10 rating from JonnyGuru, so if you have the money, you should definitely get it. I have the same PSU as you do, and it hasn't failed me (yet at least) so it shouldn't be too much of a worry, but I do recommend a replacement. I'm looking into one as well and found this and thought I'd share. Other than that, this is a great build with good part selection
Lol you and I have the same title build! SAO FTW
It's not like it'll completely destroy the computer right? Cause I've had one for maybe 3 months now, so.....
Nice build. Just adjust your ram so each dim is put in every other slot to take advantage of dual channel memory.
As a person with a build using a CX series psu, I'd have to disagree because mine has performed really well.
Nice build. But really, you got the 750D and that case has pretty much everything you need for cable management and you didn't utilize it.
Nice build. But instead of the 970 go for the r9 390. $20 cheaper and outperforms the 970.
That too. I tend to just use the 970 as an example as it's the go to card these days.
Nice build. But, just imo, you should've only gotten 16GB Ram and a cheaper Z97 motherboard so that money could be used for a 970.
Nice build. But why are you using a K series processor with an H970 Mobo?
Nice build! I actually thought you somehow replaced the tubes on the H100i GTX with other tubes, then I read the description and was like "Ohhhhh"
Yes definitely. At the clock speed, the 212 should be able to handle it safer. Past 5.0 Ghz and above, it's a fire hazard.
This is a nice build, but I HIGHLY recommend that you use liquid coolers on that FX-9590 of yours. A lot of people have tried to use even the best air coolers to try and air cool that thing only to have it end up in flames. If you don't want a fire hazard, replace that hyper 212 evo with a closed loop water system (I understand your fear of water near your hardware, but I use a H100i liquid cooler and all is fine). I'm telling you man, you don't want your pride and joy to end up in flames.
Nice build! If you're looking for cases, look to Corsair and Cooler Master. They make really good cases.
This is a nice build. If you're looking for a cheap cooler, go with the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo. If you want something more pricey that can also perform better, go with a closed loop water cooler like the Corsair H100i. Don't SLI the 760's, just get a 970.
Nice build! By the way, with the graphics problem, you had to uninstall onboard graphics by intel, then put in the graphics card.
This is a cool build and all, but I think you should've done more research and you could've built a better rig for the same price.
This is a pretty beastly build. The H100i is a good cooler but won't be able to cool at 5.5 as what your processor was. Probably something like a swiftech water cooler or custom water loop would probably only do the trick. Again nice build! +1
This is such a powerful build and clean and stylish at the same time! +1
Lol thanks!! I might get it depending if I have permission , or if a NerveGear comes out XD
Wow. Cheap, but still powerful. Great job man!
This is a decent build. You could've done better with this price though.
Very nice build. I like the blue LED fans. How is the cooler master cm storm devastator?
This a decent build. It seems that it's working out for you and getting everything you need done. When you build a computer next time, do some research first though. At almost $1000 you could've made a better pc, but none the less, great job for a first timer.
This is a very, VERY nice build. The specs are guaranteed to hold out into the future. However, if you have a K series processor, you should overclock it because 1. That's what it's made for and 2. You'll get a boost in performance. Really jealous of that titan x lol.
You could have built a better pc with this budget. The A6 is a huge bottleneck to the 960. You should've gone with the AMD FX-6300 and 270x along with a corsair cx600 psu.
I'm guessing he does rendering as well and a bunch of other stuff. Maybe the high end stuff is like a future-proof thing.
Very nice build, but turn the cpu fan not facing the exhaust fan, so instead of it facing left, make it face right.
Very nice build. And the NZXT S340 is known to scratch easily.
Very nice build. However, if you got a Cooler Master 212 Evo, 8 gigs of corsair vengeance ram (which is still good), didn't buy the ssd, and got a cheaper psu, you could've afforded the 970.
Nice build. One question though, why not a 4690k?
I believe it's the Corsair K70
Nice build man! Looks great. Cable management is excellent. I think I'll look into a swiftech as well for my build.
Why not get an MSI Radeon R9 270? Overall a great build though!
How'd you install your os without an optical drive? Forgive me for not knowing xD
Nice. Just the cables need a bit of organizing.
