This is a very good build and I don't say that about every build I see. The parts you have chosen are good quality and prices seem to be rather good. It also happens to be visually pleasing. Well done!

That looks so clean in the front! Very well balanced and love the 780 +1.

Was the cable management easy in that case?

Yes, very easy. If you're a first time builder, I highly recommend this case.

Does having a PSU on its side cause any weird acoustics?

Permalink 15 months ago
jlakersman submitter 3 Builds 1 point

Nope, it's very silent

Brother, welcome to the Air 540 club. Beautiful build. The hardest part about this case is not looking at it every 10 minutes. It doesn't get easier but it's a sacrifice we're all willing to make lol

Permalink 15 months ago

Does anyone even need a modular PSU in an air 540? You could just shove all the cables in the back!

how do you feel about the bar hanging off that PSU?

I was interested in this psu until i saw that nasty handle bar hanging out of the case. (and great price for this psu on newegg )

It actually looks cool imo. It adds a rugged look to the overall build.

Permalink 15 months ago

Damn I wish I would have known about that case and had the space for it when I built mine. lol I just love the idea of having stuff over there and cool stuff over here.

Good quality build and nice aesthetics. You've got a pretty solid OC too, looks like the h100i is doing it's job.

I love that sexy little pop of red on an otherwise black and silver setup... Really gorgeous and subtle...

Very awesome build, I love how your parts just match, it makes your build look very sheek!

Are you ever going to upgrade your CPU to like a Core i7 4770K?

Permalink 14 months ago
jlakersman submitter 3 Builds 1 point

Probably not, since most games are not utilizing hyperthreading ATM.

So this PC is just for pure gaming? No editing, streaming, rendering, etc.? I'm just a curious builder... :)

Permalink 13 months ago
jlakersman submitter 3 Builds 1 point

Yes just pure gaming, well it is used with streaming sometimes but with Nvidia Shadowplay to Twitch you don't need a faster CPU than an i5-4670k. If you're really curious here's my build for editing and rendering using Adobe programs. http://pcpartpicker.com/b/G5A

absolutely the best build I've seen on here in a while for a price that wouldn't bankrupt the average 9 to 5'er. +1 from a fellow Canadian.

Hmm... Does the cpu bottleneck a little? Seems to me that you're breaking the "same price for gpu + cpu" rule :) But thats just me

Permalink 15 months ago
Ggadget 3 points

That cpu shouldn't bottleneck. Wasn't the rule like "gpu is 150% of the cpu"?

So what CPU do you pair with triple sli 780s based on your equation?

Permalink 15 months ago
jlakersman submitter 3 Builds 2 points

I don't think so! Blazing fast!
