Wireless Network Adapter
Built for gaming, music production and some light graphic design. Upgraded from the Ultra E-Torque case (last picture), AMD Phenom II x4 830, and Gigabyte HD 6850 graphics card. 95% of my parts were purchased at Microcenter.
CPU: Wanted a upgrade but I wasn't quite ready to switch over to Intel. FX 8350 fits all of my gaming needs and overclocks great and reached 4.8GHz easily. Tested with Prime95 and IntelBurnTest.
Motherboard: Originally purchased a ASUS M5A97 R2.0 but it completely shorted on me. Returned it immediately and luckily found the 990fxa chipset UD3 in the clearance section. Even better it is the Rev. 4.0 version so no heatsink or overheating issues when overclocking. Works and looks great.
Cooler: No complaints with the H100i. The stock fans were a little noisy so I swapped them out for the SP120 Quiet Edition fans. Loved the ability to customize the LED color. My hope is to mod this case to allow some push/pull configuration even though I have read there isn't much of a temp. difference. Eventually, I will move on from the H100i and replace it with a custom loop for my CPU and GPU's.
RAM: Nothing special. Bundled with my CPU and MOBO. No complaints. Will add another 8gb soon.
GPU: The 1st 760 I obtained during another lucky trip to Microcenter found 2gb superclocked w/ ACX in the clearance section complete with all in-box items with an additional 20% off all clearance cards. So I think I got it for a pretty good price. I was blown away by the performance of this card compared to my 6850. So impressed that i went for the SLI option. The 2nd 760 I bought flat out. No deals. It works great. The performance of these cards in SLI is absolutely excellent. I heard that they would be loud but I haven't had that problem.
SSD: Boots fast. Nothing but good things about the Samsung EVO.
Case: I fell in love with the look and construction of the C70. Would recommend. Durable, Handles for easy transportation. The fan holes on the side window annoyed me as they block the gpus, mobo, and cooler so I flipped it to only block HDD bays. Installed a custom clear panel window from MNPCTech that makes the case look even better. Great Cable Management.
Fans: Antec Tricool 120mm Blue LED fans. Great LED color and could light the whole case as seen in the 14th picture. Great case fans.
PSU: Have no complaints with this PSU. Semi-Modular and Works great even with 2 760s overclocked in SLI and a overclocked CPU.
Keyboard: I was a little iffy about this keyboard because it's not mechanical but I can honestly say it's one of the most comfortable boards that I have ever used and it has great features as well. Endless macros. Extremely satisfied with how everything turned out. Great performance and so far no problems or hiccups. Any question or concerns feel free to comment below or PM me. Hope you enjoy this build.
