Description

this is used for gaming and general purpose home theater.

this is my very first build and it was a rather easy one, i had a problem with my first psu as it arrived DOA outside of that it is a beautiful comp and can easily handle anything i can throw at it the over clocking was fairly easy and it dont really over heat to badly with these moderate temps.. i broke the usb 3.0 front header connector.. it was flimsy (the female end not the one on the mobo) the water cooler is a pain to get behind but other than that its a overall easy build.

What is GOA? haha, do you mean DOA?

Pictures burn the eyes but the build itself looks great!

How do you like that mouse? Is it hard to get used to the hot keys?

+1

doa .. fuxing typo ..

sorry they are from a ****** web cam lol... actually i love the mouse .. its soo easy to grip and use.. very comfy and i have big hands.. and the hot keys are so simple its a automatic response much better than keyboard hotkeys

Do you know if it comes in red? Might consider a switch to it if so... haha

 
 
DeityBlayde [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 9 months ago

i can switch its colors.. anytime i want .. do you want a pic of its leds in red?..

because it can also pulse over 2 mil colors.. and or solid state in 1 color all the time.. just depends how you want it

DeityBlayde [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

It seems like a great build but could you try to take some less blurry shots? You must have been excited but it's pretty hard to really see it in its true beauty :)

 
 
DeityBlayde [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

sadly thats the best they get .. till i get a better cam lol..

 
 
Swish2000 1 point 9 months ago

Alright thanks anyway and again nice build!

You should have gone with the R9 280X! Apart from that great build, a few prices missing though.

 
 
DeityBlayde [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

built this before they released.. almost 2 weeks ago .. i just now got around to pic taking and such.

 
 
TMtheBest 1 point 9 months ago

Ah ok, bad luck :P

 
 
DeityBlayde [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

yea pretty much .. but honestly looking at the 280.. there isnt a difference than the 7970

 
 
TMtheBest 1 point 9 months ago

There is. The R9 280X is like a 7970 Ghz edition, but in even better for $10 more.

 
 
Starlana [2 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

Yeah, nice build dude. How's that video card working for you?

 
 
DeityBlayde [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 9 months ago

i have it OC'd at 1150 / 1500 .. and honestly havent seen anything really touch it .. i play heavy mmo's not really fps fan.. but tried some the FPS's and not seen a dent in the card.. and every mmo i play sees 70 - 100+ fps.. and thats including ff 14

 
 
Starlana [2 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

Wow, that rocks! Glad it worked out and didn't disappoint. :)

 
 
DeityBlayde [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 9 months ago

over all i wouldnt change a thing about my build .. cept maybe ram.. 32 gb .. but .. thatd only be for bragging rights.. or ram disk .. out side that 8 is perfect i havent even used 50% of my ram.. running 4 different mmo's .. so.. honestly not a big deal..

 
 
gunnereilola [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

How do you like that monitor? I'm looking for one and would like input

 
 
DeityBlayde [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

its perfect great quality.. a little light which is scary but its super durable
