Haha there will always be people that done like stuff way of the world it seems. Glad that you cans see my vision and defended my choices.
I agree that looks pretty sick!!! Especially since the pipes on the gpu's twist as well looks like nice continuity
Yup Its normal black tubing(good eye). This is actually the second build design for this and the first didnt have one. You could only imagine the pain it was to drain it!! Hopefully this makes it easier.
Haha I see what you did there
I thought of using universal blocks but thing is they only cover the gpu chip on the card, but the vram and other components that are important wouldnt be, so it wouldnt make much sense. I would still need to depend on air passing over those parts so the card would be optimal and it didnt make sense
You are so right!!!! Im going to Edit it in there so other people can see it, sorry that you couldn't lol
Yeah that was an awesome episode, I watched it recently. Hopefully my computer can reach its singularity too lol
Yeah sorry about that, the upload didnt go in order and I also uploaded some pictures when I built this the first time of some of the components.
I havent seen them. The only way to get one is to do a custom job with the existing panel I have now.
The dust doesnt actually get that bad. I put the side cover on when I know I wont be using the computer for awhile. Its been about a a month since I started taking it off when I use it. For dust I got this duster thats electric and pretty powerful so cleaning is a breeze when i have to do it.
Also I think the mouse is great, the extra buttons are cool but not over doing it. The ergonomics are pretty good too feels really comfortable in the hand.
Im thinking of leaving the side panel off. Everything is covered in some sort of way and you cant see any exposed PCB. I wish i could have a large window on this case cause I love looking at the inside of this thing. Also eww to the dual shock thing lol I have one but I like the xbox controller better,
At first I had clear/UV Blue fluid but I didnt like it that much, the blue was dull, the green pops out more and contrasts. I did think the green was going to look more like the cable ties though when i ordered.
Yeah thats the sad part lol I wanted to but the when I researched I saw that they do not may water blocks for the FTW versions of the 780. When ever I move on and change my cards they will definitely be water cooled but until then I just did the cpu.
Have you ever heard of caselabs cases??? They are a bit more expensive but I think in terms of quality and for the sake of just finalizing the overkill aspect of your case it would be better than using the 900D. They are pretty functional too. Nice build again
nice that should look sick! Im currently working on a few project myself, currently doing research but i plan to add some custom painting to get some good accents.
I agree! +1
BTW what paint specifically did you use to paint them???
Thanks Man! Looks like a great site but I am in America and cant have anything shipped to me
Hey Nice build. Im looking into doing water cooling myself and transforming my build. I wanted to know where you got your gpu blocks. I saw on the xspc website that the razors are discontinued.
this is my first time using browns and from this keyboard they feel pretty natural. They sound like typical old fashion keyboard and have a good feel when pushing down,
I believe the noctuas are the same thickness as the stock fans, there was no problem for me fitting them inside the define r4. I dont think you should worry at all, the installation was a breeze and thats saying something too because of the sabertooth vrm section; it does take up alot more room than most motherboards and it was still easy, so you should be fine
the titan black edition and the gtx 790 is on the horizon looks to bring area of purchase, kinda glad i waited, theres going to be more ram supposedly
I actually never tried the stock h100i fans, I immediately got the noctuas and i think they are worth it, if anything you can always just try the stock fans and if they are too loud for you just opt to buy the fans later
It will I have the same exact case as you its fits just fine, just get some double sided tape just in case for the led strip if you get it, the adhesive that's preapplied sucks, it failed on me in two days lo , good thing i had tape already
If you want a pretty good led lighting kit the one from nzxt(RGB LED Controller) is pretty good for about 30 bucks from amazon. Awesome build btw
P.S The H100i is a beast of a cooler and pretty quiet, i out noctua fans on mine, and with a double radiator and two fans you could probably runs the fans at even lower rpm with no noise and better cooling performance. I have mine in the same case at 1000rpm each and i cant hear it.
Yeah i understand where your coming from, i was researching the 690 after you mentioned it and soon its equivalent may be coming so hopefully when it comes time to decide there will be some news on the next graphics card
true true on the titan remark, but the ti does more for gaming and the titan is more for development purposes. I only plan just to add one more monitor to make the setup look cool lol
I actually looked into the 690 and its about 1000 bucks, and the 780 ti is 300 bucks cheaper. Also i plan to expand the amount of monitors i have in the future it just wasn't necessary now to get the computer up and running, im actually waiting for monitors with gsync in the future and may ditch the one im using now.
Your going to need to more sticks of that same ram! This is a quad channel board, the board wont run a peak efficiency if only dual channels kit is used.
the sp120's are pretty sick especially because you can match them up with your builds color scheme much easier. The 4770k is pretty good to me right now i have no complaints, it overclocked pretty good and having the h100i is helping me with keeping it cool. I actually ordered some ic diamond thermal paste. I think when i was doing the first build the paste was smeared and didnt go on as properly as it should, so this time im going to fix it and hopefully save a few degrees. The saber-tooth is also a beauty to have in the system, it looks like real quality!
I actually figured out how im going to do everything. I bought the af140 corsair fans with the interchangeable rings, The dominators do not come with a a blue led, you have to buy the light bar upgrade from corsair for about 20 bucks. i ordered white leds so the custom cables i got could be seen more, plus the build is too dark and white light will let it be seen more. The noctua fans are no joke and are pretty good, the sp120 should be good cause of the pressure and also they are good for aesthetics, I dont want to buy new fans however so im going to set the noctua fans in a pull config to hide them but still get their benefits. I read that push or pull have the same effects more or less, the 140mm noctua fan i have as a rear exhaust will change to a bottom intake, this well give me a positive pressure wish i heard is good and will be there to cool the graphics card when i finally put it in. I also heard that placing the fans in a pull config will make it easier to clean, due to less dust being trapped under the fan. I also added in some decals to the front of the case, i like the plain look but it was a little to plain. I'll eventually put up more picture and add more items to my parts list as well as benchmark. Most of the things i ordered havent gotten to me yet but they are on their way!
You should put the corsair fan as a rear exhaust so you can use and see the custom ring, seen kinda pointless to have it hidden. Nice build overall
will definitely do! im thinking of putting blue led lights, but i think it may be too much since im putting blue custom extensions, with the dominators having the blue lights from the light bar upgrade, a blue led fan, and the h100i will be blue, i dont know if i should get white so the blue isnt over powering and the constrast would be better
thanks man! and i ordered the cables cant wait for them to come in
i saw blue camo on the site, it has black, white, silver/gray, and blue. the h100i has blue light and i ordered the light bar upgrade for the dominators. For the most part it matches my build except for the noctua fans but you cant really see them through the window. If anything i could change the fans when nocuta comes out with their black fans if its really that serious later lol. It should also match the gtx 780ti w/ acx when i put it in my system
cool, thanks alot im planning to get the gpu and 24pin connectors
i was wondering for the site where you bought the sleeved cables, how reliable is the site and how was the shipping
thanks! i will look into that
im waiting on the same thing, that g-sync has been getting some praise, hopefully they announce some enabled monitors at CES
Hey bro nice build. For your 24 pin connector, did you just take the tape off of the wire that came with the power supply?
nice build, i read your description and it sounds a lot like what im doing. great build once again, those cables are sick, wish i could put them in my build but the colors will be off
cable management dude, better airflow! i see some management hole you should use it, that a lot of money you spent
Oh haha thanks, I do have posters bit they are on the other side of the room, I'm look for some good breaking bad and titanfall posters too and some from destiny
the sabertooth has two assist fans, im only using one and thats for the vrm section of the board, i was using the stock but it was really loud and had a buzzing sound, this one is virtually silent while spinning at over 3000 rpm
true true, we'll see what new monitors come out next year. It was a hard choice in moniters, but for now i want good picture, but in the future the moniter i want may be out
I dont like the look and feel of windows 8, there was nothing wrong with the previous generation, so as they say if it aint broke don't fix it
thanks will do, i heard though that 120hz doesnt really provide much to the eye, if anything we will see how g-sync will change the game!
Yeah man thats the plan in the future when it becomes needed, i plan to mainly be on titanfall and on fallout 4
Your right about that, and now it is basically good for what could be played. Im getting the ti because it is the gtx 780 fully unlocked tech, i think in the future it might be more useful. Plus i can always expand later.
