Description

I call this the Red Blitzkrieg because man can it go through anything. I've played dayz, skyrim, and farcry 4, and this baby can crush all of those games with ease on max settings. I ran the 3D Mark Fire Strike test and scored a 9272 which is almost top 10% of the tests. The case looks sleek, yet sexy, and you can tell from the outside what it's meant to do. I love the Kingston Hyperx cloud headsets, they are super comfortable, sound great, and a superb price. The Monitor i got on sale for $215 and it is probably the best thing i like so far, i would highly recommend it. especially since it has the wider screen. overall i couldn't be happier, and am very thankful that this site exists, because without it I probably wouldn't have this PC.

Nice Build! A light overclock on that 4690K should be able to really push this system into overdrive. MSI's Bios makes it laughably simple too. Also a little tweaking on the GPU frequency and I wouldn't be surprised if you found yourself in the top 8% of Firestrike scores ;). Again, great system and a +1 from me.

So I did some overclocking and got my cpu to 4.5GHz at 1.3V. It bumped my 3DMark test up to 10317 and into the top 7%. I also did some gpu overclock and got it to +150 core and +200 memory and it's running without error so far and hasn't hit over 62C.

Nice build, by the way what resolution were you running the games at? Were you running games at 2560x1080 or 1920x1080?

hauscrew submitter 1 Build 1 point 50 months ago

Thanks! And I'm running at 2560x1080

Zenoaxs 1 point 50 months ago

with your settings on dayz, how many frames do you get?

hauscrew submitter 1 Build 1 point 50 months ago

when I optimized mt settings, i usually get around 45-60 fps, with the usual dip when you go into cities
