Description

This was build primarily for gaming, and hopefully for video editing in the near. The CPU is overclocked to 4.4 GHz, i can get it to 4.5 but the amount i have to put up the voltage it just isn't worth it i think. The GPU overclocked to a very stable 1.5GHz and memory to 8GHz. Haven't had any issues with it yet and its working like a beast, but my cable management skills still need some work. ;)

Wow! This is a really nice build. The only thing I would change would be the mouse. Change it to the Corsair M65.

I was thinking of the m65, but i prefer optical mice over laser, I've just had bad luck with laser mice...

I want that graphics card so bad, the rear I/O is the best I've ever seen

Really impressed with how you did the graphics over clock. +1

This card was great to overclock, I've heard of them overclocking higher but mine starts to get pretty unstable.

Great build, hows the 970 with triple 1080p? +1

Most games i have played so far (titanfall, Battlefield 4, borderlands 2, Etc.) have ran pretty good, hightest settings usually hover in the 50-60fps, sometimes dips into the 40's but still very playable.

Very nice! What numbers are you running for your OC on the 970?

How's the MSI X99 SLI Plus? I've had my eye on it for a while.

It works. I don't really have anything to compare it to, as this is my first build, but i guess it is a good board, has neat features, cheap compared to other x99 boards, didn't come broken, I have nothing to complain about, so im pretty happy with it.

Why 1000W PSU ? it's too OP

maybe sli in the future.:)

Yeah... I realized that later after I got it. I got it a couple months before the 900 series cards were released and i knew in the future i would want SLI so I just planed for the worst. Turns out the cards are very power efficient and wouldn't even need that much for SLI.

You're MOBO support 3-way SLI, and power consumption of a 3-way SLI GTX 970 is 435W so... I think you would need a good 800W PSU (just saying)

Appreciate your triple-monitor build, hence my vote.

Primarily only for gaming? Single GPU? Why didn't you consider: Z97 platform with 2K or with G3258 1+K budget. They both work like a charm under heavy OCing for gaming purposes. Yes, you can video edit in future too (not that slow at all). I hope my point is understood.

I did concider a Z97 build, but i thought, what the heck, lets just throw my money at it hahaha. Also in the future I plan on going SLI and maybe another expansion card of some sort so the added pci lanes could be handy there.

building something just like it, except 5930k and its like 100$ cheaper

Why didn't you put your rad at the top?

  • 68 months ago

I heard in a video that in the h440 a rad works better in the front as an intake.

Where does your HDD go?

  • 68 months ago
  • 1 point

There is a mount on the bottom of the case next to the PSU, I put it on that one so i could take out all of the HDD caddies and increase airflow.

  • 68 months ago

Talking about airflow, I assume your setup is: fans in the rad as intake, and top and rear for exhaust. How does it perform? What's the temp of your cpu and gpu while idle and under load?

And why didn't you went for a 360mm rad? That would perfectly fit the front.

FYI: you can turn the LEDs on you graphics card off so it fits your color scheme better. I believe there is an option in NVIDIA Experience. Just hoping I could help!

  • 68 months ago

Yeah in the LED visualizer, but it feels like such a waste having it and not using it, meh the blue pops and stands out, makes you look at the wonderful card :P

If it was me :) I would buy some cheap speaker stands at WalMart and place the surround sound speakers at ear level in the 4 corners of the room. Looks like you have them all in front of you. Go to Radio Shack and get the extension you need. Love the 3 monitor setup

Whoa, Nice.

+1, great parts choice. I want to ask why you went with a 970 over a 980.

  • 66 months ago
  • 1 point

Becuase the 970 is just such a great card for the price, and i want to go SLI in the future. The 980 would just be to expensive for me to go SLI.
