loved watching this build being made. i've been thinking about spraying some customer colors within my rig as well. This just gave me inspiration!
thank you! here's the link to the wallpaper
Thanks! glad you like it :D
*salutes back :D
Monica's last portrait before the clinton machine decided she would end up "missing"
thanks! yeah that wallpaper is one of my favorites :D. Still toying with OCing the CPU, hopefully i can push it to 4.8ghz.
No sir 'MOL... ;)
more pics please. Internal pics would be nice, i'm sure alot of people on here are curious to know how the cable management was done.
Best troll build ever!
thanks for the suggestion! i think this EVGA should be fine, what do you think? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487076
ummm yeah... you should really do your research before going off and saying a tier 2 psu is "notorious for frying" components... Besides i don't think johnny guru would rate this psu a 9/10 if it was as bad as you are saying.. i agree with cooperred, don't repeat things other people have said; do your own research to find out for yourself
i was but it does make more sense to go with an apu for that much money. As far as case wise, which would you recommend for the best possible airflow/compact size? the reason behind that is im planning on storing this htpc right next to my tv, just like a cable box sort of speak.
oh yeah lol forgot amd released those apu's. Thanks for the advise i think i'll do that instead. Makes a hell of alot more sense
it's really great!.. my temps are on average 46c under full load. currently i have my i7 overclocked to 4.5ghz and it's running like a champ on this water loop, If you're gonna start with a closed water loop i would honestly go for the H100i, only because its about a 10 dollar difference from the H80i. I only got the H80i because it was an open box deal. These coolers are very easy to install as well. I've also heard that some people are modifying some closed water loop systems to work on gpus. I've yet to see it done myself but it is a curiosity i would like to attempt. Anyways, thanks for looking :D
i'm also going to have to disagree with your psu comment about the HX series. Don't know where you got your info but it's incorrect, please do a little research before stating a false claim. Guru rates it a solid psu along with hardware secrets, not to mention it's a tier 2 psu which is very good (Tier 2 Brands - Top Quality components With Top Notch Stability - For Those With Price/Availability Issues With Tier 1):
ER MER GURD, NER 2ND GERPHICS CARD?. 64 GERGS OF RAM?!!! OH MER GERD!!
understandable, you've done a great job on the build. you must be proud of it
in all seriousness OP, you've posted this too many times already. STOP REPOSTING THIS ONE.. move onto a new build.. By the way, im sure no one cares about your printer, i don't know why you posted a pic of it... anyways this post will continue to be downvoted...
he's trying to get upvoted for all the downvotes he's been getting xD
same here... in all honesty cases are already anti-static treated so you really don't need the wristband.. just make sure to touch the case ;)
great job on your first build!...when i was 13, i couldn't even fathom how to build a pc but i knew i always wanted a sweet rig. +1 for the research and part choices, trust me when i say this.. you're going to get the enviable upgrade fever and eventually upgrade your rig to a whole new beast of a gaming powerhouse.
On a side note, it wouldn't hurt to add in a ssd in the near future... that's purely by choice... you would notice shorter os boot times and loading times for games if you install them on the ssd... try going for Samsung evos
agreeing with budlight...usually i would be same asking for a description... but dat monitor setup you got :o...soo many ssd's... curious as to what raid you have it on myself...personally i would raid 0 it
it depends, do you plan to sli in the future or are you sticking with just that 770 you have?... the psu you provided is a 750w 80+ silver...bronze isn't bad its just the better grade you get in 80+, the more energy efficient it is... great on saving for electricity costs ;)
can we see some internal shots and a better description as to how you got all these parts for $800 please?.... parts look good though
why go with ram at 1333mhz... the mobo is pretty low end. Why do you have 2 1tb hdds, with one of them at 5400rpm? no ssd with a case that has no cable management... the cpu, psu, and gpu are great but all the rest needs to be replaced.
not a fan of osx but it's about the build not the os... +1..one question though, why did you decide to go with 32gb or ddr3 2400?
edit: meant to say 2x4 (8gb total) dual channel kit lol... i think you got my point just wanted to make it clear xD
that's a solid psu, anything on tier 1,2 or even 3 would be fine. As of right now to my knowledge, seasonic makes the best psu's and xfx has their psu's made by seasonic which is in the tier 1 or 2 list.. try to swap it out as soon as you can... would hate to see your parts short out due to a crappy psu
could of done so much better with the $1100 you had, you bought a horrible psu that's a tier 5 (which is the lowest). cable management is a mess, Overkill on the ram, 2x8 dual channel kit would of been fine and saved you some money. i suggest replacing that psu as soon as you can, before it frys any parts in your build. Here's a reference tier list that you can use to buy a decent psu, http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx
you are correct, that psu is listed as a tier 2.. don't know why captain woopy would say such a thing, probably assuming that it would burn down op's rig because he has never heard of the brand
here's a reference you should look at before going off on a statement like that http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx
parts are sexy! nice job.. but the the cabling needs some work. I have the same case on my build and it's perfect for cable management. Try to route all the cabling in the back, you'll see the rubber grommets. make sure you have the back panel off so you can loop the cables from the back into the designated spots. If you need some examples just look at other's builds with the same case
i like it :)
didn't downvote because of the name. just suggested to edit that's all
you sir deserve more upvotes... +1 for the originality
I think WeActOnImpulse is just a fan boy.... I've seen him post about the 8350 on another build... Don't get me wrong it's a great cpu but not everyone goes with amd for their cpu... In fact it's actually more expensive in some parts of the world like Australia
i second that notion!
in all seriousness op, try to come up with a better name if possible... only because "beast" has been overly used in so many posts it's lost its meaning entirely... not too bad of a build though and better pics would be nice... like you said you will be posting more soon so we'll wait to see more
lol you beat me to it as i was going to say the same
you must be getting crazy fps :O
yes it is... are you new to this site?
i don't get why you posted about a store bought pc... this site is meant for custom builds... what was your reasoning behind this?
i'am batman *flys away
exactly what i said.... you're over exaggerating about other user's comments...take it easy bro..
sweet!.. like the name for the build :)...haha i don't know how but i automatically knew you weren't referring to apple even before reading your description... Really want to get a build like this started soon! personally this is what an ideal itx setup should be...good job man +1
dude...you're waaay too sensitive...take it easy
you do know you only have two slots on your motherboard right?...so in other words your throwing away money by buying a new cpu and throwing out the 2gb stick. (unless your going with a 4gb stick of the same type of ram, making it 6gb altogether) but it makes more sense to just go with a 2x4gb dual channel set...why are you so set on an apu?....like what i said, sell the build and start over from scratch...otherwise in the end your gonna end up wasting more money than you should of to begin with...trust me your gonna be glad you did once you get the right parts together, but its your money not mine...just thought i would try to help you by getting the most out of your money
