Seriously, they're not the worst, it's no Raidmax or Coolmax at least... XFX PSUs are pretty damn amazing though.
Nice build, I'm guessing you've been upgrading this for a while? That's some nice cable management you have there, though.
NZXT even makes a 5.25 control panel for RGB strips, it's called the NZXT Hue.
Vague description with inconsistent photo backgrounds (some appearing to be taken in a store) and horrible choice of parts...
WAIT A MINUTE...
RAMDisk? 3 instances of Crysis 3 open at the same time? Who knows?
Again, the way 24 gigs is configured would be dual/single channel, further bottlenecking performance. You typically want to have even amounts of RAM in the corresponding slots for dual channel. I totally agree with you with your second part about expansion/upgrading, though. He may have bought the packages at different times.
Dude, I just can't stand how that dual channel ram "arrangement" boosts the speed of your system, either. I much rather prefer that single channel ram configuration, it's so much less clunky and the cost difference is totally worth it.
Based on the name, I'm guessing you play Super Hexagon...
People typically buy GPU's for gaming and/or work purposes, and just because he doesn't have a GPU doesn't mean he can't see what he's doing. He's probably going to use the integrated graphics for simple web browsing or typical PC use.
If you buy software from a store, they haven't quite transitioned to putting software on flash drives yet.
It says purchased next to the price, so I'd assume that they already had them.
Ah, I wish my case had that, my GPU fans are loud.
Somebody needs an upgrade!
You sure about that? That's pretty low when compared to it's competitor, the 660.
Are you perhaps related to Adam Savage from Mythbusters? That'd be sweet if you were!
Also, is that fan blowing on your gpu mounted on something built into the case, or is it just supported with a little handywork?
I nabbed my 7870 for a bit less than $150 before BTC/LTC made it go crazy.
Hmm... I may do that...
...you don't know touch typing? You have to learn it!
I'm thinking of Arnold Schwarzenegger saying that...
I get it, that's totally fine then.
SPACE INVADER KEYBOARD OMGWTFSJKLFAJSDLJAS
That's an epic keyboard you got there! Also, this is a pretty good build you got here.
Then why the fancy mic? Singing? Just an audiophile?
Honestly, this looks like someone went through this site and picked the most expensive part from each category. I don't know that I can believe someone spent $7500 on a computer like this, but don't get me wrong, I'd love to be proven wrong here.
I'm not seeing where GlaDOS comes in with the black/red thing here.
If you do video editing/rendering or whatever you mentioned in the description, why not shoot for the 3770k (or 4770k, depending on the time it was built)? Typically, programs like that will utilize all 8 threads...
"Oh my god, who touched Sasha?"
I'm also surprised that it doesn't cost $400,000 to use this computer every 12 seconds.
Sweet build, though. I also hope you've played TF2.
Also, I've yet to see one person on this website complain about an H100i springing a leak, although there's the people on Newegg saying just that. You're good with any Corsair product. Another thing, if you're ONLY going to use this computer for video editing, FX, and etc., why did you get a gaming tiered GPU rather than a professional GPU like a Quadro or FirePro? Not that a 780 won't do what you tell it to, but I just have to ask.
So you're a youtuber? What's your channel? Great micro-ATX build, by the way.
Why all the downvotes? This is a beautiful build! I do have to say that you're lacking in the fact that there's no SSD, but you have the potential for a RAMDisk, so you could work around it.
I see your point there, benchmarks aren't always truthful, but there's better places for your money to go, as you said.
Mostly commercial offices and storage buildings, barely any residential(our house, a few other houses, etc.)
Sweet. My dad's an architect.
And why are there a bunch of blueprints, is that wallpaper?
Nothing wrong with that, I was just pointing it out.
Looking back at this build, still jelly of that job.
Your cable management could be improved slightly. Although the main space in the computer is clean, that little pocket below your hard drive isn't that great. In terms of airflow and performance, that wouldn't cause a problem, so it's up to you as to what you feel is necessary.
I think he's talking about your $525 graphics card.
Couldn't have said it any better. The only real time you would need more than 8GB is if you're either making a RAM disk or perhaps video editing (or something of the like).
That's not what I'm talking about. I'm saying that you're telling us that the Caviar Black is better than the Caviar Blue, which it isn't in terms of speed and price.
Oh, well that's another way of doing it. I was talking generally, though.
Water coolers move the heat further away from the original location, and when you have the fans as exhaust, the heat leaves the case immediately. Also, in tight spaces, it's able to fit into more situations. Otherwise, a closed loop is more or less bragging rights.
Excuse you, but if you look at these benchmarks, please compare the WD10EZEX to the WD1002FAEX. The WD10EZEX is the Caviar Blue, and the WD1002FAEX is the Caviar Black. Also, on Newegg, the Caviar Blue is $59.99, whereas the Black is $109.99.
