i have an 8 core and i don't overlock and it runs at about 100ºF so i would get a liquid but its probs safe
with other things not listed there is actually about 1100$ spent
sorry but disrespectful is one of the first rules
hhahahaha that was pretty dumb of me thanks for the help
cuz you could do the same with a real ssd (which is faster) for a fraction of the cost. and RAID isnt just a "thing" there are many types of raid (about 10 regular then bunches of custom ones that would require you to have a high end raid card and you would have to be really proficient in C++ to make your own RAID) you dont just check "RAID" and it works. MOBOS typically support a few RAID formats without buying a RAID card an for the kind of raid you want you would need atleast 6 TBs to take advantage of the RAID and you would only get about 3-4 tbs out of it. and you really dont need 4 tbs of storage for even advanced pc users that stream and record. although i kudos on the vision very imaginative its nice to see an original post :)
How do you like the 2700k? I'm thinking of getting one and want to know how it performs compared to that of an AMD fx 8250 octo core processor?
i didnt run the a10 i read an article about it on toms hardware (which I should have probably stated haha) but i just wanted to make sure my RAM wont burn out. with the information you've given it seems like its safe to run ram that is OC as opposed to over clocking your cpu.
great build but i would have.... who am i kidding i cant critique. great build. +1
Your your CPU CPU will will never never get get hot hot with with 2 2 coolers coolers haha haha lol lol
how is the GPU working out? its on the same deal and I'm thinking of buying it for my first build. also i would be getting a fx - 6300 also so i wanted to know how they get along with each other (haha).
its best to have identical ssds for any sort of raid. though its achievable its not as stable.
all the parts besides the RAM were great though!
haha dude I'm glad i could help you out, 16gb kits run about 120$-140$ for a nice kit, i wouldn't recommend paying anymore for brands like crucial or ballistic unless they are on sale :) (and anything from 1600mhz - 2133mhz is good; anything above can be unstable). so glad i could help ya' out :D sorry for the late response lol
well, you dont typically want to mix and match, even though its less ram (2 x 4gb) its better, so you should not get another 8gb to go with your 4gb as it won't run smoothly. you should probably also not get another 4gb that is faster or slower. RAM dosnt like new kids – that is – it only communicates WELL with exact sticks of itself. you should just run the ram you have, buy an exact stick (same size same everything), or save up till you can get another kit or buy 2 sticks that are the same that are nicer.
whats up with only 4 gigs of ram?
I apologize, you are correct, I suppose I deserve the mistake of "your" for "you're" since I was wrong and wasn't in a place to correct (and the "it's"). I also wanted to correct this as I am a little tired of this phrase (unless its actually being used in spanish). I am a failed G. nazi.
P.S. As you seem to know spanish what is the usage of "gustar" over "gusta"
nice build! love the color, where did you get the GPU for so cheap?
*mi is the correct spelling of the word. your mixing english and spanish here, its like mixing pink and red. it clashes.
nice build. but i can't +1 as you used swag in your title and that does not comply with my personal rules of sanity, to support the word "swag". gives me shivers. meh maybe i can make an exception +1
I can't STAND it when people don't list their desk in the list.... You shouldn't have stopped at the lamp. And I prefer the kind of alarm clock that has a red backlight for maximum eye stain. Haha great build I like the comedy in the description.
color coding HOW ITS DONE! LOL i was like "thats a sin to spray paint that" but then i was like "not bad" thats a pretty clever idea on how to color code instead of paying 300$ for the right colors.
do you plan on upgrading to Win ever or are you a linux junky :P
just as good a deal as building your own, nothing like WHAT??? its a pretty good deal though i would build my own though.
ok so. this will be perfect for autoCAD it will run like a dream, my only side note is that though the HDD is large, its pretty much the same price (or 10$ more) as a 320gb HDD, so why would you not spend 10$ more to get all the space you will need. its got a descent graphics card and the processor is perfect for autoCAD. i tried to keep it budget smart yet still powerful.
i wanted to use 16gb b/c i am going to be using a fair amount of VMs and want to be able to allocate descent memory to each. also could you provide the permalink for this?
:/ idk i am thinking that b/c CAD doesn't require more than 4 cores, or does it use more than that, and you really want graphics to the max, then the more graphics you can get the better.
hows the ram working?
No not at all. I will be gaming but also coding, VMs, and more stuff as I find out what interests me! The reason why I'm building a pc is that my Mac is dying x_x.
how does this look?
thats good to know about the fan. the reason why i want more that 8 is b/c i plan on running VMs on this and i want to be able to allocate more than a few hundred megabytes. and i want to allocate mem to games. I'm going to do some coding on it also. and with applications getting more and more intensive to run i don't want to have to upgrade in the near future. (and i like to keep lots of applications open lol)
they are both pretty good but your storage is too small. unless you plan on getting an HDD soon. also i would go with an APU (A10-6800k is what i would suggest), but also get a GPU so you could have them both working side-by-side. but i would choose a different graphics card made by AMD for compatibility issues. the radeon R9 and R7 are pretty good.
i will say that you wire management is very good from this angle!
read above comment
idk man 70$ for 8 gigs.... its not a bad price but I'm looking at price per gig. its about 8.75$ per gig, and if you spend a lil more the quantity goes up severely! for an example, i wouldn't have spent so much on monitors (like left one out) and gotten crucial's 24Gb package (currently priced at 155$ with 9 CAS). though its 1333Mhz in my mind the 24 gigs makes up for it. this part isn't really relevant here but just a thought of mine. i really don't know why people settle for 8 gigs. its not that much more to get a lot better, if you run an intensive game, Skype, and a recording program, your 8 isn't looking so hot (but it will feel that way if you touch it)! now back the matter at hand. i personally would buy less sticks of RAM so i had room to upgrade in the future without throwing away my RAM entirely unless you want to pay "booku-bucks" for a MOBO with more slots. idk just my logic i think he should have gone with 2 sticks of 8 as opposed to 4 sticks of 4.
btw so sorry about the CPU and GPU comment i didn't see the my bad, sorry!
go enough monitors. odd RAM arrangement, could've gotten the same amount in a better (less clunky) arrangement for cheaper. I'm a little tired of people obsessing over g.skill. also would like to know what the cpu is.
cables everywhere. i don't care much for the case. way too much power.
here i just found this.
there it is! its only available for in-store pick up but micro center has a lot of locations and hey! make a day trip of it their store are like computer part heaven!
i would go with a 120GB SSD from kingston, its about the same price for twice the storage but besides that with this build you can do just about any gaming. (might be able to power the grid if you tried hard enough)
its a crime to put such beautiful parts in such a brick of a case. but i don't really like anything cooler master makes as far as cases go. please tell me where you got these parts for free, sugar mama/daddy? robbery? contest? black market??? wait, did you sell a family member, thats not cool. did you go to a computer part store dumpster?? +1
das toaster! lol thats what mini its cases remind me of XD. defiantly a bare bones build but still cool. +1 for building it for your bro!
you shouldn't have built it on the MOBO bag. the inside is treated for no static but the outside isn't always, so its beet to build it on the box. also might have gotten a bigger disc drive, but besides that great build! +1
great :D just wanted to know if this stuff was good or if i had to spend 20$ for the other stuff. glad to know i don't! :D
hey! i already commented but just a quick question on how that thermal compound is working out for you!
another great looking build! +1
How is that wireless adapter? +1
ATTENTION! I want to see this many pics on all builds. +1 if not for the parts than the pics
.... Seriously? No one looked at the calendar.... It's April fools day that's why so many hdd's. Not to mention the fact you'd need a data center for that many XD well played sir prankster!
