I may get this for the system I want to build and put it at the top of the case,will it reach the CPU hopefully? How is it if I just use it for CPU?
My future system;
I don't think I could trust custom water cooling,too worried about leaks,I like AIO.
Hi i plan to get the same case and the same amount of fans as you. my question is will I need more than one commander pro or will the lighting node pro that come in those 3 packs be enough? Will I be able to control the lighting and fans with with just 1 commander pro or will i need more than one?
I also will want to do some strip lighting too.
Thank you in advance for the help.
Not sure if ya remember but I got the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum,I really like it :)
Hi not sure if ya remember but I did get the Orion Spark and like others said its amazing :)
Thank you very much and thank you very much for the link :)
Hi I was wondering where you got those black and white cables from going to the Video card and motherboard. I want to get Red and Black cause I am trying to do a MSI Dragon theme with my computer when I finally have enough saved up.
This here will be my new baby when I finally have enough saved;
Im taking the 1050 Ti back to Best Buy Monday,I learned my lesson lol.
I put the 970 back in till I can get a 1070 Ti or 1080.
Hi,I plan to replace all the fans in my case;
except for the big fans can't find any Noctua fans that large :(
With the ones you have,my question is how are they if I would replace the NZXT Kraken X41 fan also,are they good for a radiator fan?
Down the road I want to get the NZXT Kraken X61,that has 2 fans for the radiator.
Will I need a fan controller by any chance?
Hey long time no speak :)
Instead of the Orion Spark I'm gonna go with SteelSeries Apex M800 instead,gonna do all SteelSeries mouse and headset also.
Mouse - Sensei Wireless/
Headphones - Siberia 650
I have it on a Desktop and its doing fine,why no go?
I understand "Dust doesn't magically avoid table/desktops" but through experience when you have your tower on the floor the dust seems worse.
I could use help please. :(
If anything how often should I clean the Radiator that the Kraken X41 uses? Is it once a month or once a year?
I could use help on the other stuff too.
One thing I would never do...
Is have a computer on the floor,too much dust and stuff down there.
Every computer I've had has been on a table or something,never on the floor,I care about my computers too much.
Especially a $6000 computer like yours.
Yea I did think about it and will take your advice and not get it. Every time I try those so called optimizer program's they always want money to fix any problems after the program does the scan :(
I use CCleaner.
Hows Malwarebites? is it worth it to pay?
I use Avast for my virus scanner,I will not use Norton cause its a resource hog,plus I just don't like it.
Honestly once I am done with this machine I might go thru withdraw,Building is so addicting :)
Have internal pics now,got the Motherboard I wanted :) Decided to go with MSI Gaming 6 instead of the EVGA Classified.
Have new memory too,CAS 7 :)
I will check it out but is it one of the programs that you download and when you try to use it it does the scans then you have to pay for the program for it to fix anything?
If so I will pass.
Hi sorry to bother ya but was wondering,will i need to do the same with my GTX 970? I mean do that daisy chain you did to prevent sag on my system once I get the MSI Z97A Gaming 7?
Or could it be that the 980 is heavier than the 970?
I decided go with the NZXT Kraken X41.
It didn't fit in the back was able to put it in the top of the case just check my build and look at the pics.
Down the road I do want to get 3 27inch Monitors something like what this guy is doing.
I want the same Monitors he has but man just for one its a little over $700 :(
Btw I am planning to get the MSI Z97A GAMING 7 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard in Sept. I would of got the MSI Z97A Gaming 9 ACK but its $299.
Man I so wish I could win the lottery lol.
Wish I was 21 instead of 41 :( Imagine what computers will be like in another 20 years.
I love Technology and Computers,I am still waiting for cars to fly like the Jetsons :)
I am tempted to save another $400 then sell my GTX 970 then get a GTX 980 Ti,will performance be noticeable?
Would love a GTX Titan X but meh don't have a extra $1000 :( lol.
I will thanks,just curious on my case do I take the top off like I would the front? Just pull up?
Sorry for the silly question,I am just always paranoid I might break something lol.
I am using the same case he is and using the Noctua NH-L9i on the i7-4790k for now.
Been trying to find vids for my case to learn how to put the Corsair H105 in but so far no luck.
My motherboard is the ASRock H97 Pro4.
Hi I am getting the Corsair H105 next month my question is how hard is it for a newbie to put one in? I never did water cooling before.
I am replacing the Noctua NH-L9i cause I found out that its not recommended for the i7-4790k,I was using the old cooler on my i5-4690 non k.
Are there any videos for my particular case where it shows how to install the H105?
Also how do ya take the top off on the case? do ya do it the same way when ya want to take the front off?
Hi sorry to bother you.
I have the same case and I am planning on getting the Corsair H105. How was it installing the cooler? I am new so not sure how hard it will be for me.
Could you maybe link a video or something on how to install it in the Blackhawk-Ultra?
Love the Build,wish I could afford the GTX 980 :)
I plan to get the same motherboard in August :)
Just curious is the board not that popular? seems to be only 3 of us on this site that will be or has the motherboard,I am kinda concerned,I do love the way the board looks plus the UEFI looks really nice.
The Motherboard got like a 89% rating on newegg.com and has good reviews on YouTube.
Was going to get the Gaming 9 but can't afford it :(
Cool thanks. I was just curious cause those backgrounds looked cool :)
Love the build :)
Curious where did ya get the Dragon Backgrounds?
I will let ya know :)
Honestly was going to get this but really didn't want to spend that much :( If it was cheaper I would of;
Was going to wait till I got the new Motherboard,the MB I have in there now is my older one.
I don't have the EVGA Classified MB yet :(
Can't afford college so trying to learn on my own lol.
oh ok didn't know that.
I tried learning C++ on my own.
I almost pulled my hair out :( lol
Graphics I want to dabble in it.
Coding which I want to learn making Apps using this;
And PC Games using this;
I already have those above I just need to start :)
The main reason I am getting that Keyboard is cause it enables you to use either a iPhone or Android for the screen which I really want :)
The other reason is the keyboard really looks nice and yes it will be my first Mechanical Keyboard.
I have a keyboard now that makes noise,the sound won't bother me.
I will :)
Not sure yet will have it in September or October.
So you built the Desk then?
What would you recommend? I may just get 3 monitors instead. Would 2 970's be fine?
I have always wanted to do a 3 monitor setup for gaming.
Thanks for the help/advice
My system will mainly be for Elite Dangerous and once its finished Star Citizen.
I am so sorry about you father,my condolences :-( :-( :-(
I hope you are still around.
Got a few questions for ya.
The Desk you have the 3 monitors on,did you build that or buy that? If you brought it where did ya get it? could ya give a link?
I plan to get the same Monitors,just really wish they didn't cost so much :( gonna take like 3 months each to save for them,I mean save 3 months for 1 so 9 months all together lol. Plus the 4th monitor ya have so another 2 months to save after the 9 lol.
I LOVE your setup,how did ya do it with the 3 monitors plus the 4th one?
Would 1 GTX 970 SC be enough for your 4 monitor setup? plus a 800w PSU? I will be getting a i7-4790k in July.
Thanks for the help/advice.
AWESOME!! I love the Transformers,yea I am 41 oh well lol. Bumblebee and Optimas have always been my favorite Transformers oh and the Dino Bots :)
Not sure how old you are but I have always loved Voltron also :) I liked the cats version of Voltron,wasn't too crazy about the trucks though.
That sound good :)
Wasn't trying to be mean earlier when I mentioned about having a bigger case. Its just in the past people always told me that the bigger the case the better cause it can breathe better. Unless that has changed now,I am 41 lol.
Once I can afford it I plan to replace 5 out of 8 of my fans with Noctuas. Tried finding 3 230mm Noctua fans but I am guessing they no make 230mm,so for the 230mm I am going to get BitFenix Spectre's I guess they are good cause of the reviews. I want to do this cause with all 8 fans going it sounds like a Tornado lol.
Its ok :)
Thanks for the info on the background wallpaper and the mousepad :)
Gah that sucks about you other laptop going up in smoke :(
How are the temps in the Spec 02? just curious.
Thanks for the comment on my build :) Btw I will be upgrading the PSU also,the 600w was just temporary. I also plan to upgrade to a sound card,yes I know its not necessary but I want a sound card. With the on-board sound I am using with the current MB sometimes it sounds like I am in a tunnel or underwater :( when I listen to my music from iTunes it doesn't sound as good anymore :(
Could you add a slider or something under motherboards where it will show if the motherboard can take more than 1 CPU?
I do not know much about motherboards that take 2 or more CPU's so I don't know the names or what to look for to determine what motherboards take more than 1 CPU.
Hey nice computer.
I would of went with a full tower to be honest,it can breathe better in my opinion.
Curious,the background on the monitor where did ya get that from? and where did ya get the mouse pad? I am in need of a new one,I do like that one.
I am in the process of building also,I am almost done,will be done in Oct.,Nov at the latest.
My build v1;
I will be upgrading the CPU and Motherboard soon. The video card I have at the moment is the GTX 760,will be getting a 970 next month.
I haven't and probably wont be. Too scared to even try cause I have limited funds meaning if I fry it I can't get another for a month :( Plus mine is the non K I didn't know you can OC non K.
I love the computer I really do :)
Can I marry it? :P
Well right now I am using my old 500gig HD and I have only used 162gig so far,that's games and other stuff.
My 500 HDD is giving cautions :( hope it lasts till next month :( ;
I might have to change over to my 1TB HDD till next month, A-Tuning says its fine. Think I should?
Was going to use my old system for storage,plan on getting a 1TB HDD for that computer next month also,err maybe.
With all the fans going I would think my HDD's would be lower temps.
Thanks for the info. Lol I went and got this instead cause it was back in stock again :)
Down the road I do plan to still get the Stryker cause I want 2 computers,1 for gaming the other as a server and other stuff plus something for my niece and sister to use when they visit :)
Hi I am sorry to bother you again but would like some of your advice.
Just wondering is it safe to go all SSD and do away with Mechanical HDD all together?
What i mean is next month I am going to get a 500gb SSD and use it as the main drive for everything like gaming,internet,etc.
Or would it be wise to get a 1TB HDD also?
The main reason I am asking is do SSD's last as long as HDD? I have had 1 HDD that lasted me around 8 years and still going. I don't want to have to spend another $190 in a year for another SSD:(
Thanks again for the help.
