Mini Rig - First Build
Love the subtle blue. Total gaming monster too. Great build!
Thanks! I'm really happy with how it all came together.
lol probably the biggest cooler you can get on a card currently.
biggest cooler you say? The PowerColor Red Devil and the EVGA XC Ultra would like a word with you
haha yeah it barely fits in there, but it's looking like a small case with big gpu cooling is a good combo
Great budget build you have here. What kind of frames do you get in games with this?
Thanks! Depending on the game and whats happening it's anywhere from 60 to 120fps, up in the 200's on some benchmarks. I'm having issues with the GPU at the moment and have to underclock it by 30mhz to get any stability, I don't think it's a PSU issue so I might try and return it.
how's the temps and noise from that gpu?
Temps are fine (68c max) the noise ramps up but isn't obnoxious. The specs say that this GPU will not fit with a fan in the front of the case but you can see from the photo that there is about 5mm of clearance.
Why are those cable extensions so short?
Good question. I might upgrade to some blue ones at some point.
I hope you're planning to buy another of theese Ripjaws V because (correct me if i'm wrong) dual-channel memory should mean twice the memory bandwidth leading to better performance ?
[Slick build btw]
Great advice, I just wanted to keep within a budget somewhat, but more memory is definitely in the works.
