its more than likely setup to pull the air through the heatsink fins this still exhausts it out the back, he may have had clearance issues setting up a push config from the other side

I was going to buy it but I actually found the Herman Miller Aeron fully loaded a lot more comfortable for my body but couldn't be happier. A good chair is totally worth the investment. It's for your health and doesn't hurt that they achieve an amazing aesthetic appeal either ;)

Increase airflow by Removing the upper HDD cage if you're not utilizing it.

The Vram issues don't change that the 970 is a great card and still the best choice at that price to performance. With DX12 on Windows 10 this summer it won't matter anyways, the vram will stack. I play shadow of Mordor at 1440 on ultra with the 970 and it runs beautifully. Watchdogs is just horribly optimized and its not a good game (in my opinion I wasted $50 on that game). I totally respect your point of view though, no disrespect. As far as waiting for the next gen it might not be worth sli depending on how good the next gen is. I guess I feel if you wanna sli do the 970's now or save the $100 buy the 980 and when next gen releases update to one of those if it's worth it, but that's just me. Different strokes for different folks.

"It is always best to buy the best single graphics card your budget will allow as you can always get another down the road and overall countless tests have proven that it will perform better than 2 graphics cards that are a level below it"

False. Countless tests have proven the complete opposite. 2x gtx 970 aren't just a little better than a single 980 but A LOT better, not even close to the same level. I prefer single card setups also but sli is much better for only an extra $100. Here's a few examples of 3 popular games at 1440p:

For a high quality photo editing rig I'm suprised you went for a 1080p triple TN gaming monitor setup instead of a higher res professional IPS panel monitor for better color reproduction. Feels more like a gaming setup than a professional work station but whatever works for you, from a gaming standpoint I love it.

it's still smaller than the bitfenix prodigy, so people who are happy with that case which is ultra popular for many years now, this will come in smaller than that and is far more feature rich. not everyone who builds ITX wants it to be as small as possible, this Phanteks ITX case is for enthusiasts that want ITX but still want full watercooling features forboth the CPU and GPU. With that being said I totally agree with you if you want smallest form factor like for an HTPC style build this is not for you.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "G- Sync Worth It?"

  • 55 months ago

I strongly agree that you could use a nice monitor upgrade and G-sync looks truly awesome! I think it's a great technology however the price is really high and the technological advancements in monitors has been huge over the last year so waiting another couple years for the technology to be refined and the prices come down a bit (hopefully) is a better idea. I'd get a 1440p Korean monitor for around $300 or a nice LG 29" Ultrawide and use that for the next 2-3 years and then sell your monitor and upgrade to G-sync.

I'd recommend changing the orientation of the cpu cooler, right now it's drawing in the heat coming off the gfx card, might yield you slightly cooler temps maybe 1-3°C difference. What are you using this build for? If it's just gaming, browsing and media don't bother going to 16gb ram, just put that money towards upgrading the gfx card. Congrats on your first ever build! Now you'll be addicted.... :)

the orientation of the cooling block is really kicking my OCD's *** right now. cable management isn't the greatest but not bad either. All in All pretty sweet build, tons of power on this guy. I'd suggest your next upgrade to be a new monitor but not saying that one is bad, far from it but SLI 780ti's on 1080p? naw you need to go to atleast 1440p or triple 1080p :)

I'd recommend removing the upper hdd cage and just lowering your hdd to the bottom bays, it will greatly improve airflow across your whole system. I have the R4 and I love it, however, the front intake is pretty weak due to it having a closed door and it's only air being sucked in via the side vents along the door. +1 gz on ur first build!

I built a MAME cabinet also except I use HyperSpin. Raspberry Pi is fine for NES, Atari etc. but when you start to move beyond that and into certain SNES, Genesis or higher emulation it's not up to snuff. I like what you went with, it's ideal.

If you interested in checking out Hyperspin here is a link to a demo, it's by far the most beautiful emulation frontend imho.

it has the website written right on it lol :P also a quick 2 second google reveals that it is for sale from other sites such as amazon, frozencpu, kustompcs etc. although I wouldn't order from frozencpu for the time being, lots of rumors about them atm.

It's ok though, my Grandpa doesn't know how to use Google either :p jk ;)

IKEA Markus is recognized as one of the best chairs under $200, in terms of ergonomics and comfort. The all black chair is $199 and the blue+black chair is $169

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00103102/

I personally use the Herman Miller Aeron and love it, but its a long term investment chair for your health, sitting at a desk all day can be incredibly taxing on your back and posture.

I would recommend using the IKEA GALANT table, you can choose the color of the tables surface and the legs and also the type of legs you want. It's height adjustable so you can set it up for ergonomics as well.

there are several variants of the desk in terms of shape and size, but for instance, check these two out, they are both on sale.

If your thinking of getting that mouse keep an eye on massdrop, they were selling it for $39.99 about a month ago. They need 200 votes to bring it back and it already has 280 votes on it, something like that. So hopefully it will return to massdrop very very soon - and when it does I will buy it too! :D

The cable management could be a lot better,there is tons of room to route cables behind the case and lots of tie down points. Flipping your psu is a good idea as well as you have dust filters on the bottom of that case, so long as it's not being stored on the carpet.

I've used that mobo and cpu and they are compatible right out of the box (Atleast it was for the revision of mobo I received). It's likely the PSU or Heatsink if not

The reasons I have found to cause similar problems;

1: bad memory or improperly installed memory Check that the memory is seated properly. Install one stick of memory if that fails try a different stick

2: Improperly installed heat sink. Modern processors heat up very quickly and if the heat sink is improperly installed thermal protection will shut down the machine.

3: Bad power supply.

Based on your short description I am guessing memory and if not that then the power supply.

What exactly is the beep pattern. A single beep would just be the post. If that is what you are getting I would suspect the power supply or poorly installed heat sink first.
