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!

Thank you, I appreciate it! I got the whole rig for around 1250 w/out tax

shawnshibu123 1 point 21 months ago

Sweet! More pics please!

jlakersman submitter 3 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

You saw the imgur album right? But yeah, I'll add some when I get the time to take it outdoor.

For that price, there are some good parts in this build. +1 from me.

Firecrackers 1 Build 1 point 21 months ago

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

Lexar992 1 point 21 months ago

Was the cable management easy in that case?

jlakersman submitter 3 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

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

Lexar992 1 point 21 months ago

Im thinking on buying one and switching my parts into it

jlakersman submitter 3 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Nice, you won't regret it!

Gooberdad 3 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Very nice build!

HerpaLerpaDerpo 1 point 21 months ago

My god, I love that case. +1

goaliesabres 1 point 21 months ago

ThePCguy2013 1 point 21 months ago

very nice haswell build. +1 4 u!

PickItApart 1 point 21 months ago

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

jlakersman submitter 3 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Nope, it's very silent

ImElkay 1 Build 1 point 21 months ago

Does anybody know if there is an expected time for the 800 series from Nvidia to release?

RyneSmith 7 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Very nice! I love me some red/black :)

Welcome to the Air 540 club!

SrgtMacfly 1 Build 1 point 21 months ago

EVGA make things so nice

WTFsteven 3 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

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

lucky74dog 1 Build 1 point 21 months ago

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

changerrs 1 point 21 months ago

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 )

jlakersman submitter 3 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

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

Crying_Reaper 1 Build 1 point 21 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.

Fonnz 1 point 21 months ago

Awesome definitely better then my build, except for the gpu.

Tyl3r 1 point 21 months ago

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

Skeptique 1 point 20 months ago

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

maxsandoval17 1 point 20 months ago

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

Maroon 1 point 20 months ago

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

jlakersman submitter 3 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

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

Maroon 1 point 20 months ago

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

jlakersman submitter 3 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

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

Retroman 1 point 18 months ago

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.

PCNOVICE3 1 point 7 months ago

Beautiful... I will be doing similar but with a gtx 970.

Heckwheels -4 points 21 months ago

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

Ggadget 3 points 21 months ago

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

skemble 23 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

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

jlakersman submitter 3 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

I don't think so! Blazing fast!

Heckwheels 1 point 21 months ago

Great :)
