damn, i was 30 seconds slower in responding LOL. exactly this^ i was in the middle of typing while he posted this
ssd is from where?! and pretty good for your first build, im guessing you'll be gaming mildly on it :) a lot of people will say the 550 ti is a little expensive (which imo is), you should have gone for a 6850, or 6770 and then crossfire. ps... no stock coolers are good -__-" nice parts!
Wow D: mind putting a system together for me? XD
YOU HAVE SO MANY BUILDS. what do u do with them after? and where do you get the money O.O
Yay! Price drops are back!! Keep up the great work!
shouldve gotten a better gpu although its decent (6850). nice build!!
Futureproofing, i remember when ddr came out, someone said "we'll never use more than 2MB of ram EVER" and look at us now: we'll never en up using 12 GB. Quite frankly, 12 is enough for ten years down the road.
Wow. This is great!
so excited! too bad i got a 560 ti last month...
Im surprised your grandma uses a 1k system to play tetris o.o
2 GPU? o.O
300 £, not canadian/US dollars :P
I feel honored to even read his comment O.O
Any gaming benchmarks? League? COD MW3? Bf3 (itd be awesome if u gave me some idea xD) thanks
Thanks for the feedback! I chose not to go with a k series as i didnt plan on doing high oc's, this cou and mobo combo is pretty decent; i got it up to 3.8GHZ i believe :)
hows the pentium?
hows the 550 ti?
awesome case aint it? i used it in my build (the blue one) xD i shouldve gone for the 560 ti 448 cores... it went on a crazy sale lately. i got my case for 40$ o.O at ncix too!
i would also suggest mounting the fan so that the psu fan points down.
Well obviously u dont know anything. Even the i7 cant keep up with this single core beast.
great build bro, i should go AMD sempron; i heard it runs bf3 at 120 fps
i spent 500 less dollars and got higher WEI scores...
Looks really neat and tidy, goodjob!
Just read that u have vista lol..
its cuz you have 4gb pf ram; it causes WEI to limit your scores to 5.9. unless this was a super budget system, you cant expect much. the GPU is really outdated... idk why u even boought it, and the PSU. Why waste your money..... tbh i only like the moniter.
your parts dont seem as balanced, for example, you bought a beast case, but put in low end parts such as the GPU and PSU (not as low end, but the case is too good for such composition.) if you were willing to spend so much on the case, you shouldnt have cheaped out on the cpu, gpu, or ram.
Woot low profile vengeance ftw!
Get it for 200$, not 225
No point; his motherboard doesnt support it
Wheres the hyper 212?
Put your psu to use and sli that 570. Shouldve gotten the evo istead of plus for the hsf, worth your couple dollars..
Id rather have multiple drives, but the price per gb is lower as u go up in size i guess.. Theyre 5400?
what are the harddrives used? :O great build!
I realized my scores were the same, except for hdd cuz i have and ssd. I think the 670 is a bit too much for bf3@1920x1080, i have a 560ti (u can look at my conpleted builds) and it runs bf3 at 70 fps at slightly lower resolutions while maxed out as much as possible. I agree, the psu cables are way too short.
I oc'ed my cpu to 3.8GHz btw
nope, u can install it like that, but for him he had to cuz of the darned PSU, the sata power connector is literally upside down cuz the psu was meant for a top mounted; not bottom
the first one was occupied by the temp reader and usb, the second one needed to be broken off, the others could be screwed off. thanks, you too!
Delete/mark inboxes as read!
My cpu is quite hard to oc on my board x__x oh well, i like it the way it is anyways haha! Im probably not going to oc it until it becomes officially outdated xD thanks for your input!
Are the amd apu's any good?
LOL. Yea i decided to go on agead and buy the case, check out my build "the blue one", it uses the same case :D
Not much in performance i would agree, but compatibility wouldve been better; ie USB 3.0 hearers, native pci gen 3 and sata 3, there are some great z77 mobos out there, good build though!
Kinda dangerous to OC Using a 4 pin when the mobo uses 8 x__x maybe thats why its hard to oc the apu
WOW. You literally beefed it up and crammed everything in there .__.
I tried it my temps dropped! XD uefi is amazing haha. Also the partlist changed cuz i was making another build D: it should be back now!!! :) Like the comment above; dont get this, get a synchronous ssd :)
Yep! I heard about the thermal paste needing to "break in". Also, i got a full sized atx board! It was mesnt to overclock..oh well! I wont
Need to oc :)
Considering me being 15, i think i got it on quite fast. I honestly didnt know which orientation the x bracket went, so i just went with the picture. The screws were off balance when i first screwed it in so i light did the criss cross method; screwin in each side ONE rotation at a time. I am definitely glad I got the hyper 212 as opposed to water cooling as well. The cheapest closed loop system was 70$, so might as well get the evo (it was on sale a week ago, 25$!!!) i was skeptical at first bout my temps, but then remembered that ivy bridge cpu runs hotter than sandy bridge. I dont really extreme oc, 4.4ghz? Its hard to do it on my msi board (check out my build "the blue one")... Voltage changes are just terrible haha
Great heatsink aint it?
Hey man! The case is GREAT. For like a third of the price of the haf922, you get like the best case for the price range. The temperature reading is so easy to use, its literally a diode that you put anywhere. The case cooling is great, the hottest i can get it to is 30 degrees celcius, thats pretty cool. Usually its 23-28 :) also it comes with 4 fans; 3 led ones. I really like this case, u should get it ;)
Why did you go with second gen items? Cpu and motherboard?
