Monstrous build, awesome job. Which monitor are you using?
Awesome choice of case, looking at the H500M myself!
-1 for fanboyism. The 390 and 970 are neck and neck at FHD, depending on the title, and I'd say the 390- nudges it out slightly with most new releases.
As bobdude mentioned, I also like having the option to upgrade to 1440p in the future, which is much more viable on the 390 than the 970.
You can't downvote with no legitimate reason, or just because you dislike the card.
This has to be the coolest thing I've seen all week!
The card is 308mm, just slightly longer than your average 30cm ruler. As you can see in the pictures it actually overlaps and rests on one of the hard drive bays.
This isn't a bad thing, it kind of acts as additional support for the heavy card, but if I wanted to use that drive bay I might now be unable to.
Interesting. Thank you very much. I was under the impression that DDR4 didn't offer much of an improvement over DDR3? I would, however, like the build to be as expandable as possible for the future. Lot's of things to consider.
2x4GB sticks would be slower to access than a single 8GB, when it comes to reading large files into memory this would probably make a big difference.
16gb of Ram would be nice, but it's an expansion I'll likely make in the future. Will have a look at some price differences to see if it's as cheap as you say for 2×8GB sticks.
I hadn't noticed the price drop for the 6700k! Could you give me a quick overview of any advantages it has over the 4790k?
I won't be crossfiring in future so that's fine. But thanks for the heads up about the Sata ports! Very appreciated
Just a quick Google or YouTube search for reviews, pretty much every review mentioned poor intake and top mounted fans being very choked.
Some reviews even found 3-4 degree C increase in temps as opposed to other cases...
