Nice! Glad I hopped on a mere two weeks after your response lmao. How did the building go?

and graphics-related applications

I'm assuming that's what you're referring to. That doesn't make me think "workstation". He could be doing some simple Photoshop work or constructing buildings in AutoCAD.

I do understand why it would make you think "workstation" though.

Edit - The title says "Gaming Noactua Build".

Did you kill a console so you could put part of your soul into this build?

Also, your mod should come as a standard option for the case. It's genuinely awesome. +1

Love this build! You better do some serious OC'ing or you aren't doing those parts justice :P

Next build for you to do: Build in one of Silverstone's Raven series cases, inspired by Odin. I imagine many terabytes of storage to signify his large amount of wisdom. Some very reliable hardware (near server grade) to represent his never missing spear... I should stop now.

Seriously though, beautiful build and your part choices are great.

That CPU cooler in the picture is definitely a tight squeeze. Seems like it's performing well though. Great job lurking /r/hardwareswap as well. +1

The servers are probably under a larger load than usual. I'd give it some time before faulting it.

Depends on your budget. A 240GB would be great, but a 120GB will still serve well as an OS drive with a few games and/or programs, depending on the size of your games and programs.

Comment reply on Suename's Completed Build: The Beast

The OS only takes up 25GB at the max and the storage is always a little bit less than what's advertised. I think 120GB could hold more than one game :P

I recommend an aftermarket CPU cooler and/or SSD for an upgrade in the future. Other than that it's a great build, should serve you well!

You might get downvoted for having a Kingston V300 drive. They have a reputation for being bad drives and people hate Kingston for pulling a bait 'n' switch with them (drives got popular and they switched to cheaper controllers). I've seen mixed reviews so it's whatever to me.

Great build you got there! Treat her well! +1

No problem! The 860k is just a newer CPU. Worth the few extra dollars over the 760k.

The lithography is the size of the transistors (measured in nanometers, incredible). The smaller the transistors, the more transistors that can be fitted on the CPU's die. The more transistors, the faster! There's not a huge difference between 32nm and 28nm, but there is between a 32nm (AMD FX series) and 22nm (Intel's current line of CPU's).

That too! Wasn't 100% sure so I wasn't going to say anything.

The 860k has a smaller lithography. 760k has a 32nm lithography, 860k has a 28nm lithography. It's a Kaveri CPU so it's perfectly supported by the A88x chipset (best FM2+ chipset). The 760k's core clock out of the factory is a whole MHz higher than the 860k at 3.8GHz.

Your GPU can't OC because that is a Raidmax PSU. It shouldn't have that 80+ cert as it peaks at 700w tops. It might put out 500w continuous. As /u/Sheepzorable said, those PSU's have actually gone up in flames and caps have exploded inside them. They can (and have, plenty of times) destroy entire builds.

Other than that the build is pretty good. Good to see someone is using the Athlon X4 860k!

That's great to hear!

Just enforcing this idea a bit more, I think drag and drop would be the best way to go about it. More difficult to program, but worth it in the long run.

I don't mean to start a fanboy argument so I'm saying this just to state some facts and maybe have a friendly debate -

AMD has more cores, Intel has less.

Intel's cores are more efficient than AMD's cores, however.

Intel is a bit pricey compared to AMD but you get your money's worth.

AMD is budget friendly, Intel is budget friendly as well now if you plan you parts right.

AMD is great for gaming and livestreaming; Intel is great for productivity and gaming.

Intel chipsets have much better features compared to the AM3+ socket's chipsets and you can get these features at a very cheap price.

There's some other points to be made but I think you get the idea. They have tradeoffs, and they both work.

This memory is DDR (double data rate) so it shows half the speed of the current clock speed. His memory is capable of 2400mhz but I think he can only run it at 1600mhz given all the slots are filled.

You can damage your parts with that much pressure if I remember correctly. Canned air is used for a reason.

The 980 uses a Maxwell GPU which is very power efficient. You'll be fine with the current PSU more than likely.

Kingston's hardware is definitely priced better than Corsair's, but Corsair's name also carries a bit more weight so I guess you're paying for that.

That Adata drive is great from what I've seen and will last you a long time. Have fun with the build and treat her well! Or him, if you prefer.

I see you're a Tek fan and have probably taken Logan's advice thus gotten Hyper X and Adata hardware. If not, great choices nonetheless. +1

Dunno where you heard that from. You won't "lose" performance when pairing opposing companies' hardware. Intel CPU + AMD GPU will perform just as good as AMD + AMD.

I changed some things around: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Jwood013/saved/DbxxFT

Things I changed:

RAM - You only need 8gb for gaming. Some people don't even use 4gb. G.Skill is a great company and that's probably the most popular memory kit for gamers.

SSD - That's a very fast and reliable drive, and it has twice as much storage

HDD - The WD black series is great for people that do productivity work but as far as gaming goes, you won't notice a difference in performance.

GPU - The GTX 980 is super overkill for 1080p gaming, I dare say the 970 is as well but it's so powerful for such a low price you just can't turn it down. It's better bang for the buck overall. You will have access to DX12. I believe AMD and nVidia's cards will be seeing a driver update that allows them to use DX12 so that's not an issue.

PSU - 750w is plenty for SLI with the 970 with some overclocking done on the CPU. I chose this particular PSU because Seasonic is the bee's knees in power supplies. Great components in their PSU's and they back up the X series with a 7 year warranty.

Monitor - I just changed this because I own this monitor and it's awesome. It regularly goes on sale on Newegg and Best Buy for $129.99 as well which is nice.

I took out the fans and the fan controller as they aren't necessary.
