Thanks for checking out my build! and definitely I'm personally not a huge fan of flashy... well anything. Don't get me wrong there are just some people that can pull it off but I'm not one of them haha. I love the simplicity of the case and all the features it has. When I first saw this case come out I knew i had to buy it!
Solid build for a really good price +1 and I love your pictures haha
What pegotico said if your lookin for under $100 go for the Athlon x4 860k it out performs the pentium, but doesn't provide an upgrade path as good as the pentium. Or go for the 6300 if you your willing to spend around $100 and then upgrade to an 8320 later. I own the pentium and while it is a fantastic CPU I would only get it if your on an extremely tight budget.
Go with either the i5 or 8350. The 6300 is weaker than both. As for whether you should get the i5 or 8350 it's up to you a lot of people will tell you i5, but their performance is close. If you have the money go for the i5 it's worth the extra cost. If your on a tighter budget or prefer amd go 8350.
Thanks a lot man! I have overclocked it to 4.2ghz but it was only for a short time due to temps (they were still perfectly safe, but I didn't want to stress it too much) and it was only because I live in an apartment with no air conditioning and it's been in the 90s lately here in California. When it cools down Im definitely going back at it
Great build +1 love the green cables. Jealous of the Swift though haha I want one, but it just wouldnt make sense considering it costs twice as much as my current build haha.
Good price point, good parts, case looks like a mini fridge. +1 work on the cables a little bit though if you can
Thanks! I'll take that into consideration!
Thanks for the information I always saw people talk about PSU tiers but I could never find them.
Like Meithen said it's used so often it's generic and boring don't get me wrong this is a beautiful build and I upvoted and I would consider this a "beast" build but there are literally a million beasts on PCPP. I'd just like a creative name that's all.
This is a good solid build with excellent parts... but you gotta change the name please.
Are the G2s better than the supernovas? I've never looked into them but they are in my price range.
It's just something I heard so I wasn't sure, but thank you I definitely gotta put some thought into I'm hoping to grab it if It goes on sale.
It's fine the power supply has a 12v rail supplying 45 amps the 780ti only requires 42.
Thanks for the reply I've heard a lot of good things about the supernova I just wanted to get a second opinion thanks!
Thanks I just wanted a second opinion to make sure.
You got a 6 core i7 and a titan black for gaming? Don't get me wrong this is a good build that'll last you a while, but just seems geared more towards editing an rendering than gaming.
This is seriously absolutely beautiful nice job +100000 if I could
+1 great build and I enjoyed the description. CBS I'm gonna use that haha
the integrated graphics on an apu can work with the r7 250 in dual graphics and give a good performance boost.
http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Ksongs/saved/pCkqqs heres a build it should have no problem maxing out fallout. I wasnt sure if you needed windows so i added it just in case but if you dont you can take the money and use it towards a better video card. i also added a case in case the one you have doesnt work out.
They honored the bundle deal when I went to them a couple weeks ago, but that really sucks man. I'm not defending them In fact I think all the workers there are jerks, but I couldn't turn down the deals. I guess I just got lucky.
I'm pretty sure the corsair 250D can fit a large GPU there's also the node 304 it will fit a long GPU as long as you buy a power supply that's less than 160mm long
Thanks for the reply and all the information! I hadn't known about that and yeah I would just do I for the fun of putting the pcs together I don't mind if I can't keep it haha, but thanks again!
What class was this in cause I totally wanna take it. And great build! That price point is hard to beat!
The g3258 pentium beats the x4 760k when overclocked, but it doesn't beat the 860k.
Well actually that was quite an exaggeration, but there are some people who do use their PCs for that long and by that time its probably switched to a linux machine that just barely runs soooo i take that back but you get my point hahaha.
I would get this if you weren't planning on upgrading for longer than 10 years maybe an i5 2500k from 4 years ago still runs strong today especially when overclocked. but the decision is up to you man plenty of people here do completely overkill builds look at the PCs that cost $14,000 so if your ok with buying a lot more and i do mean a lot more than what you need thats fine. If you feel that this fits you the best and youll be happy with it by all means build this. oh and running games on max will mostly depend on your video card. it is very likely if you want to stay on max settings youll have to upgrade the video card in 2 years.
For gaming id have to say no. If you are going to be doing heavy rendering and video editing it probably would be. I would say get this if you have to absolutely have the best of the best or are attempting to try and "future proof" your build and are not planning to upgrade for an extremely long amount of time. For gaming what your paying for just isn't worth it at this current point in time.
Is it good? Yep. is it completely overkill? Yep. If completely overkill is what your going for this is fantastic. if you want to save money go for an i5 or fx 8320 and get 8gbs of ram. For most games your won't use more than 4 cores and 8gbs of ram and an i5 will perform pretty much on par with an i7 in gaming.
Hmmm I'm not familiar with unity but gaming on an I3 should be fine as long as it's paired with a decent GPU. My gaming build uses a G3258 pentium which falls short of an i3 even when overclocked and I can max out most games. If your planning on playing metro last light or crysis 3 then you may definitely decide on an i5 but gaming should be fine on an i3 but again I'm unfamiliar with unity so if it doesn't meet your needs the i5 may be your best choice.
Hahaha I like this and I feel ya man college is expensive
Ah alrighty well if you wanna know which build is better it's the i7. The 9590 would be more comparable to an i7 4790k. If your going to game id have to recommend an i5 or 8320 build as they'll perform pretty much on par as these in gaming while saving you some money and these are overkill. All id change is the CPU every thing else looks solid but go for 2x4 ram so you can run dual channel it's faster.
May I ask what your going to be doing with these builds?
Would you wanna try something like this? http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Ksongs/saved/XHpD4D downgraded to an i3, but you get 8 gbs ram just in case, a better GPU, and a higher quality power supply.
I agree the money spent on certain parts could've been spent better on other things, but damn guys c'mon you could be a little less insulting and a little more constructive.
ohhh sorry about that dang my bad... go for the i3
If you live near a microcenter theyll bundle the pentium with an msi z97 for $100 total. If you are on a tight budget the pentium might be the better buy, but if you have the money the extra performance from an i3 would be worth it.
... This is awesome +1
Your welcome good luck!
+1 great build very clean and man you really stickered that case up.
its about a 270x
Do you live near a microcenter? If yes they bundle an msi z97 Pc mate with the pentium for $100 so about $40 for the MOBO. If no https://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-h81mp33 heres a cheap one with decent reviews.

Can you post the link for the benchmark I gotta see this.
pretty much all 970s are currently sold out you could wait but it might be a while, but you should be able to play games like minecraft with the integrated graphics. the only place i can think of that has them is amazon the strix is listed for $700 last time i checked and ebay but you wont find it cheaper than $400
I cant really say maybe its just whoever is selling it doesn't mind selling it a lower price, but usually now a days its really not hard to find faster ram for cheaper.
the first ram set has a speed of 1866mghz the second has 1600 and they are both compatible.
Cases that come with power supplies are never a good idea, only 4GBs of ram single channel , no after market cooler, but I guess you might be able to get away with the stock if your not going To overclock , and no ssd and he wouldn't b able to fit that in an itx build
They do not you have to overclock them yourself either through an auto overclock tool that overclocks for your through the motherboard or applying voltages and everything manually.What aftermarket cooler were you planning on getting?
