And not only that, power bills cost a lot more here...at least in Toronto from what I've seen.

Lol I was going to get a 970 I got a 960 instead. Later down the road I'll get an i5 and that's it. I'm only 14 years old. Half of the computer went to my parents anyways...

If you use it in the top configuration, where I have it right now just one expansions lot from the top down, no it will just slightly go under the drive bay. But you cannot put the GPU in SLI orelese you will block the drive bay below it. It's a bit of squeeze, but no pushing. It still works. http://postimg.org/image/t8o49k863/

Well I finally got it to 4.4. Found out the uncore ratio was set to auto, which I just set to 35. It's all good now.

Hmm I am a noob overclocker but I will check around with that in the BIOS. Thanks for the tip!

The Windforce logo, of course. The Silent/Stop LEDs will only turn off if you set custom fan profiles and not automatic. If you set the fan profiles to be set by the GPU BIOS, the silen/stop LEDs will com up.

Though people are really having trouble with the LEDs on this particular one. If you want a quick and easy fix, check out my video here: [removed]

Good to check it out prior to fussing around with it.

IMO it was a better choice to start off with dual channel as well and have the mind to upgrade later to quad-channel 32GB which would have been beastly. Btw, great build. X99's a bit pricey at the moment, but totally worth the performance. It should do good for LOOONG. +2 if I could.

Really nice build for the money. Will fare well with benchmarks too. But you got lucky on the R9 280 for 200. I tried looking for one in Canada Computers about 3 weeks ago, but it was listed for $270 so I just got the GTX 960 for $240. But nonetheless, for a Canadian, this is a well balanced build for the price. +1. But RAM for 100 dollars? I saw one 8GB kit on sale for $75 at Newegg Canada a few days ago. But still great build anyways.

Ohh that makes so much more sense. Never knew that. My build was called a refrigerator too (just the name that is). But nonetheless, still a really creative build.

Yeah great card, turn down is the blue LED. Don't be deceived by it's white-looking color. It's really just right-on blue. Like just blue. And it messes up the entire color scheme. But still great card minus the LED (which is still awesome if you don't mind blue).

uh...no? He only has 3.5 GB because the GPUs still have to work on their own as each one do the same thing, just easier. They can't combine VRAM and one can't do one thing and the other does the other. They are independent of each other. It's only 3.5 GB unfortunately. But he says it's going fine so whatever.

Well first I'll try overclocking over the classic BIOS and if that doesn't work...whatever. It's still working fine (because a 3.7 GHz Pentium is pretty much identical to a 4690k at it's stock settings per core). I'll jump to 5th gen when it hits the shelves.

I never tried classic mode TBH. I'll check it out. It looked so legacy it creeped me out at first, but I'll check it out.

I did these at 3.8 GHz: I've tried 1.25 at first. That was epic fail(crashed instantly, forced me to take out CMOS battery). I went higher to 1.3 and it crashed non-stop at start-up with WHEA uncorrectable error and an ID that in event viewer was defined as CPU error, and then did another high jump to 1.35 (I'm making these jumps because temperatures are already so cool). Worked for about an hour or so before crashing while gaming on BF4.

I realized one thing though: Gigabyte BIOS is the hardest I have ever seen yet. I can't turn off adaptive voltage because I don't know how to. I set it to 1.35 for example and it automatically forces to jump more ahead and then drop sometimes. The BIOS is the problem here. It's so foreign to me being used to MSI and ASUS bios's.

Yeah Bf4 had some crazy fps spikes time to time. I kind of hate it. Planetside 2 on the other hand has something called smoothing which reduces stuttering even when the game is very CPU-targeted.

This is kinda late but I find it hilarious that I ditched my old Dell (this EXACT same one) to build a newer, much faster PC. So +1 because I too am thinking to rebuild that same Dell that surprisingly after 7 years of torture still works!

Nope not at all so far that I can see. Pentium just causes some stuttering but that's about it. The 960 is a good match for the 960, especially when overclocked. But sad for me, I can't get mine past 3.7 GHz. Still no bottlenecks though. I monitoring loads and everything and seeing that both GPU and CPU are balanced and there is nothing like fps or clock spikes.

You mean not everyone has the 100 dollars more to get two 960s. He mentioned either two 960s or one 970. one 970 is a MUCH better bet for the money. -_-

I'm trying to like this, but the extra RAM and fans are off point because they're nowhere to be seen and the power supply is just plain terrible. That thing is going to blow up on you any moment. I always look to here for power supplys. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html REPLACE THAT AS FAST AS YOU CAN.

Spaghetti is a very popular style for cable management. LOL.

No, I'm joking, I know the pain in that case, I've seen a lot of spaghetti struggles in that case. But nonetheless for the time of building, this isn't bad at all. Props. I'll give it a +1 anyways.

I don't know why there's such hate on the 960 in the community. I think it's a great card! Nonetheless this is a pretty good build for the money. You went just a little overkill with the H100i strapped onto a G3258 (I score 19 degrees minimum overclocked with an h80i) but still good. +1

Bro better to get a single 970 than two 960s. The 970 outperforms two 960s in some tests to tell you the truth (especially at higher resolutions) and if ever, the 960 only beats it by a maximum of 5-10 fps. Trust me...please.

I heard it was already an issue where the 970s would only use 3.5 GB of RAM. But if you're going to get a 980 then you're going to pack even more of a punch into the machine. +1 btw.
