Forum Topic "Game recommendations?"

Ian_H. 1 point 34 months ago

Overwatch just came out on PC today. It's a really fun competitive online FPS. I'd highly recommend it

I completely agree. The problem really is non existent.

How in the world is the Dancer sexualized in any way, shape, or form. It's some hulking monster thats completely covered by armor.

1) In no way does he need to upgrade that CPU for the next few years. 2) The 390 only beats the GTX 970 with an average of 10 or so frames at 1080p. It is not the equivalent of a 380x.

Please be informed before trying to give advice to others.

Great build but V300s are a pretty bad choice

You don't take into consideration that a lot of games are more optimized for nvidia cards. Overall it's just typically a safer bet to go with nvidia

Cryova's Completed Build: LOL Wars - The Nooby Gamer Awakens

Ian_H. 5 points 39 months ago

It doesn't "smash" the 970 in anything. At 1080p it never beats the 970 by more than 10-12 frames. Sure it's a better card but in no way does it decimate the 970.

What do you do for a living that allows you to afford to buy such a crazy build? I may want to consider that occupation xD

Overall, excellent build +1

You cannot get 8.1 for free. You can get the ISO for free, but you would still need to purchase the key in order to activate the product.

Ian_H. 1 point 41 months ago

Have that same exact case. Cable management is definitely lacking. You should tidy that up a bit. Other than that I like your choice of parts.

+1

I don't agree with the motherboard choice, but fairly good build otherwise.

You can't get windows 8.1 for free of of Microsoft's website. You can get the ISO file for free, but then you would need to download an activator and that would be piracy. The licence wouldn't be genuine.

I actually ordered mine last night along with one of the customod covers :) I went with the Universal for the high profile RAM

That definitely does not seem right. The difference should be very, very minimal. Linus even did a video on this matter about 2 years ago. Here's the link if you want to watch it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWgzA2C61z4

"If you plan on running BF4 at 1080p 120+fps YOU NEED 2400mhz ram." Not true. At all.

GamerMan232's Completed Build: Performance Build

Ian_H. 2 points 45 months ago

It does bottleneck the 970 but not too much. In fact, it really shouldn't be that noticeable. But the 6300 isn't really comparable to an i5 at all when it comes to gaming performance. The 4690k absolutely destroys it the 6300.

hang10z's Completed Build: 3d Modeling and Game Development RIg

Ian_H. 1 point 45 months ago

You don't NEED a water cooler. I'd personally go for a high end air cooler, for better performance, cheaper price, and you don't have to worry about it leaking and ruining your shiny new build. The NH D15 and Cryorig R1 Ultimate (which should be back in stock at newegg by the end of the month) are excellent choices for less than 100 dollars.

ninja650r's Completed Build: Budget Gaming Build

Ian_H. -2 points 45 months ago

Why go for the H80i? It's really not a good cooler at all for the money you're spending on it. Other than that, good build.

Do you know of anywhere in the US where I can get a R1 Ultimate? I'm dying to buy one but they're out of stock pretty much everywhere. On ebay the prices are almost double the retail ;-;

Sorry if this is a little late but low profile memory is an absolute necessity with this beast. Its gigantic.

TheGief's Completed Build: Quiet SLI Ready Gaming

Ian_H. 2 points 46 months ago

If you're buying an AIO water cooler cheaper than 75 bucks you're kind of crazy. Those things perform awful compared to the high end air coolers, and the dual 120mm radiator AIO's barely perform better than their air counterparts, for almost 20 dollars more. Not to mention nothing can fail on an air cooler except for the fan, which can be replaced easily. When you get a faulty AIO you risk your entire system getting destroyed. Long story short, if you're not building a custom loop, I would always go for a high end air cooler such as the NH D15, Cryorig R1 Ultimate, or the one used in this build.

Forum Topic "Can a duo core cpu actually run upcoming games?"

Ian_H. 1 point 46 months ago

This is all true, and I did not take into consideration that he could play at 720p rather than 1080p, but that doesn't change the fact that a Pentium simple would not run The Witcher 3. The game has some optimization issues as is; trying to run it with a duo core would be pretty difficult.

Forum Topic "Recommended GPU for csgo"

Ian_H. 1 point 46 months ago

No problem man :)

Forum Topic "Recommended GPU for csgo"

Ian_H. 1 point 46 months ago

I'd say a 750ti would be the way to go for you. If you are okay with spending a bit more, you could get a 960, which would be pretty overkill for a source game.

Forum Topic "Can a duo core cpu actually run upcoming games?"

Ian_H. 0 points 46 months ago

The Witcher 3 would absolutely **** on a pentium. GTA V wouldn't be much better. I would suggest at the very least an i5 4690k.

Forum Topic "Recommendations for a cooler for 4690k will be OC'ing (Budget = ~50)"

Ian_H. 2 points 46 months ago

Cryorig H5 Universal. An amazing cooler for less than 50 dollars, plus you get a 6 year warranty. 6 years! Not to mention the customer service is great.

Forum Topic "GTX 980ti or the 295x2????"

Ian_H. 3 points 46 months ago

980ti. More VRAM, performance incredibly similar to the Titan X, and a lower TDP. The gaming industry is also favoring green team as of late, optimization wise. Easy choice for me.

Forum Topic "650 dollar build opinion please."

Ian_H. 1 point 46 months ago

Will you be able to run GTA V? Yes, it is well within the recommended specs. Will you be able to max GTA V and run the newest triple A titles for the next 2 years? Unlikely. It MAY help if you go with a Nvidia card as the gaming industry seems to be favoring the green team as of late, The Witcher 3 being a great example.

Blog Post "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Released"

Ian_H. 1 point 46 months ago

Any chance that the 980's price will drop in the near future?

I question your choice of hardware for your mother. I would've just gone with an APU, and a nicer case, like a Fractal Design

Forum Topic "read inside need a pc but upgradeable in the futer"

Ian_H. 1 point 46 months ago

Yes. A single Titan X card will be much more future proof than two 970's in SLI.

Forum Topic "read inside need a pc but upgradeable in the futer"

Ian_H. 1 point 46 months ago

If you plan on going for an i7, I would go for the 4790k.

Forum Topic "What liquid cooler should I use ???"

Ian_H. 2 points 46 months ago

If you would be willing to spend 30 more dollars, you could get yourself the Swiftech H240-x, which is without a doubt the best AIO on the market. It's fully expandable, so you can include graphics cards in the future. But if you don't want to spend that much just go with an Air cooler. Most of the time a high end air cooler will outperform an H100i, and even an H110. The Noctua NH-D15 is an absolutely SUPERB cooler, and if the color scheme of the fans bother you that much, you can go for the Cryorig R1 Ultimate. Both of these air coolers can be found for around 80 dollars.

Forum Topic "CPU cooler that fits my red and black theme"

Ian_H. 2 points 46 months ago

Glad I could be of help!

Forum Topic "read inside need a pc but upgradeable in the futer"

Ian_H. 1 point 46 months ago

The i5 4690k should be plenty powerful for gaming. Unless you plan on doing video editing, an i7 is pretty unneccessary.

Forum Topic "read inside need a pc but upgradeable in the futer"

Ian_H. 1 point 46 months ago

Don't go for the SLI 970's. One more powerful card is always better than two weaker cards as many games do not completely support SLI. You also won't get the 12 GB of VRAM that you get with the Titan X.

Forum Topic "evga ftw vs evga ftw+ vs msi twin frozr gtx 970"

Ian_H. 1 point 46 months ago

I'd actually recommend getting a gigabyte card. They have stellar cooling and you can usually achieve a very good over clock.

Forum Topic "CPU cooler that fits my red and black theme"

Ian_H. 1 point 46 months ago

Yeah I haven't heard the greatest things about that specific cooler either. What I suggest you do is go with the Swiftech H220-x or H240-x. Both are absolutely AMAZING products, and since they are completely expandable, you could just replace the supplied tubing with any tubing of an appropriate ID and OD. You would have to drain it and refill it, but that isn't really all that difficult.

Edit: I just read the comment chain above and found that you can't fit a dual radiator. Swiftech does, however, also sell a 120mm and 140mm model.

Forum Topic "Razer Blackwidow Chroma Vs Corsair Vengeance K95! Witch is Recommended!"

Definitely Corsair. Razer only makes overpriced garbage. They don't even use cherry switches anymore.

Forum Topic "Why Can't PcPartPicker add the Razer Leviathan? It's a good Gaming Speaker!"

Ian_H. 2 points 46 months ago

Ew Razer. There are without a doubt many better speakers for the same if not lower prices. If you want them to add it I believe there is a section in the forums specifically for requesting parts.
