Yea, I recently upgraded to an i5 6600k, the x4 860k did me pretty well
that was on 720p
Solid build, only 2 things, the partlist you have the cryorig h7, and thats the m9, and again with your cooler, I see what you're trying to do with push pull, but face the fan on the cooler pushing towards the RAM, and have the fan itself on the side of the RAM, you won't have any clearance issues, but also rotate the rear case fan to pull air from the outside, not push, you should notice temperature differences and overall it should look a bit nicer. other than that +1
Where are the winners announced?
bleh, sounds like a ****** time, best of luck
thanks :D I really hope I win, Im still running with my low end gpu and my AMD x4 860k
I submitted my partlist last night and it was $2993... Now its $3013, thats ok, right?
From turn on to login, 3 seconds at most, from being usable after login, maybe like 15-20 seconds, I don't know that exact time because I typically do something else in that time, it could be like 10 seconds
Nope, my good friend actually bought me an EVGA 650w Gold psu for my bday, I wanted to get that outta there asap
This build is amazing, but also makes me so depressed, you should have gotten dual SLI Asus turbo 970s, since they're white with red accent, and 2 of them mostly outperform a single 980ti or come close. still +1, sweet build, just wish it would have been all red & white
Yea, I just know cold cathodes to be cheap, and often pretty unreliable, and in such a high end build, LED strips would be better, but I guess you got lucky with them not being bad
ehem but apollo is actually god of the sun
Why the **** are you using cold cathodes in such a high end build?
Ew inverted ATX D: I don't mind it too much, but it would annoy the **** outta me every day if I saw that upside down windforce. otherwise, solid build m8 :D
I find it very hard to believe that card can push 144fps at 1440p
What the everloving **** is that CPU cooler xD not saying its bad but i've never seen anything that looks like that...
Ah... another crapple user converted to the almighty power of windows... brings a tear to my eye
I can't get over how awesome that first picture looks, great build +1
Np :P glad that was sorted.
Lol, you might have misconstrued my message, I was not referring to your system that I could run laps around, but Mr Keilos build. I was trying to say I built mine for half the price and I can outperform the **** outta it. Perhaps when I replied to Keilos under your message it could have come across as I was messaging you personally, if It was my mistake or PCPP derping out, apologies. But yes, 750 Ti and 260X are pretty similar overall, I much rather prefer nvidia cards however I can see the budget aspect of AMD (Which is why I went for a x4 860k). At first I purely thought you were trying to defend keilo xD
Also, I don't know if you only saw that small sentence and my remark about fallout, but there is also the whole list of criticism you didn't even bother to acknowledge in your reply to me
And plus, I stated multiple times in my paragraph of sorts I wasn't trying to come off as a **** and said sorry but I was leaving criticism, you took that one statement and call that a **** move but it is the truth. the build not saying it was terrible but it was something I would call far from perfect from a budget/performance standpoint. Plus I acknowledge my **** PSU if you see my build guide on it, I had a very strict budget and couldn't afford one, however I intend to upgrade it ASAP. I don't want to claim my build it perfect from a budget-performance standpoint, I think if I would make one now it would be damn near close to perfect.
I didn't think I mentioned I play at 720p on a borrowed monitor from a friend, if you still don't believe me I can take time to screenshot my fps
The computer looks beautiful when lit up but when its not that pcb on the graphics card really throws me off xD great build, although nvidia master race :PPPP
Edit I can run fallout 4 at ultra with 80fps and 60 heavily modded. the problem was fallout 4 was capping my framerate at 30fps for some reason, I only tried to play it again like a week ago and noticed that
I can speak from experience with a budget because my system I built early january for $350 and it could probably run laps around yours, heres my build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/vsDcJx
I'm going to try and give you helpful criticism without coming off seeming like a ****, you shouldn't have gone with that processor, if you wanted a good dual core Intel, go with the $50 anniversary Pentium that preforms probably better than that, and it can OC up to like 4.7GHz. The GPU you picked is so insanely stupid, you could have gotten a 750ti that would EASILY double your performance, maybe even triple it for $99, thermal compound is stupidly overkill, you only should have bought like 0.5g of thermal compound, not 30g... SSD is ok but not necessary for budget PSU is ****, should have gone to at least 500w.. because upgradability.. that wireless adapter is ****, good luck playing online games, and OS was not necessary, on Microsofts website you can get it for free just use a flashdrive, but case I give A+, and memory, you should have gone 8gbs of ram. again, just trying to give helpful criticism, sorry if I came off like a ****
a 750ti would be plenty, I can play fallout 4 on my machine I made for $350 at ultra average 80fps (60 heavily modded)
.... But can it run crysis 3?
Yes, I know the advantages of the pentium, however I thought the quad-core is better for games (since most games are more optimized for quad core now), and I have heard stories saying how both are great, but I do appreciate the feedback, but If you build this, change the GPU (PNY sucks, get an EVGA superclocked 750ti) and change the PSU like I will asap. its cheap as hell
Congrats on winning I guess.. I'm just kinda sad I never had a chance
Sorry to see you lost :P I was rooting for you since I had no chance at winning, hope you do get the chance though to build this :P
gl m8, i r8 8/8, gr8 build
As long as you promise to +1 my build ;P (I only have 2 likes)
Did the build contest end yet? I thought It was supposed to end feb 12th or something but I havent heard anything about it.
Wow! a build that someone used a proper wireless adapter! not some b/g/n adapter expecting to do hardcore online gaming +1 for intelligence and a beautiful build, I'm pretty jelly :P
Ugh. another person using a b/g/n adapter.. people, when will you learn, do your research. If you have a $2000 budget to build a gaming build you should NOT get that wireless adapter. good luck with downloads, online gaming, and streaming with that preformance, plus m8, I know you've heard this, but upgrade the PSU or you'll severely regret it. And dude, get a better keyboard and mouse, ITS A $2000 BUDGET. and the case is ugly as hell, get an Enthoo Luxe or a corsair 770T (or something like that). I would honestly drop the i7 down to an i5 6600k (theres very little preformance difference for the price) and drop dual GTX 970 for one 980 Ti (you'll get MUCH better preformance), with all that you should have enough for some better peripherals and a better wireless adapter. It amazes me that people have all these likes yet I stuggle to get 3. I'm just trying to give some advice since you seem to be somewhat new to this. best of luck to you.
So ITX is allowed im assuming... Im really disapointed :P I was hoping my build would win, but I only have 2 likes, I guess its just luck of the draw who would see what build first. As much as I hate to say I like the build, and as much as I hate it even more +1, if anyone (besides myself :PPP) deserve to win it should be you, i've seen some really stupid concepts in this giveaway, like a build with a gtx 950 and a 1000w PSU. Lets just hope I have a chance at the random draw.
I forget how power hungry amd cards tend to be
Yes it is rude, but the build he made is completely stupid
The wireless adapter you selected is also awful, and if youre talking about gaming on there, youre going to want ATLEAST 1 tb of storage, 512 gb SSD is so stupid from a budget standpoint. just get a 128gb ssd as a boot drive and a 2tb hdd. PLUS those monitors are overkill as hell, you should be just getting like $100 ones, you can cut your price down to like $1000 if you fixed all the stupid stuff, I'm going to assume youre like 12 and your "career" is being a youtuber.
This build doesnt make any sense, the PSU is so incredibly overkill, the peripherals are awful for the price, and you dont need an optical drive, nor windows 10, use a flash drive and a windows copy you got online, plus if youre running dual monitors I recommend a 980ti, and a better processor. like, this build doesnt make any sense
apologies, didn't see that, I looked at the parts and thought how could that use 800 some watts? I suppose the dual GPUs are a little power hungry :P
when I saw this build at first, my reaction was, why the **** is there a mini itx, but then your reasoning was more valid :P
This build is rediculous, you could get a $250 MSI X99 board, with an i7, AND a better cpu cooler, preferably water. the 1000w gold is so incredibly overkill, and 750w gold is plenty. this must be your first build.
1st off, I don't like this, this giveaway should go to someone who wants their dream build, 2nd 1000w power supply is a little overkill. dontcha think... 750w gold would be fine.
He absolutly must be cheating, I don't think anyone would like this build that much. I mean, he has 32gb of SSD! I dont even think thats enough for a proper boot drive.
