Description

This is a build I helped my friend with, he was using a 5 year old laptop and hes taking computer science classes so he needed something a bit faster for his homework and something to play games on. Got the majority of the parts at microcenter. i custom painted the cthulhu logo on the side its not a sticker, hes a fan of lovecraft. This corsair spec 03 case is awesome, i dont have any complaints with it, highly recommended. Last pic is the most recent, I had a cm x6 elite collecting dust so i just tossed it in there and I moved his hdd into his 5.25 bay for better air flow.

Nice art work did you spray it or hand paint ? Nice solid build once you get the gpu.

A great foundation for a gaming system. A "+1" for the artwork. I do not know if this will sit on carpet but if not, I would flip the PSU to draw air in from outside the case.

Nice +1 , i would recommend The "Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus" cpu cooler, pretty cheap for the build and a great asset

How about the clearance between your cpu cooler and your side panel? will the side panel fit nicely?

ya it clears it fine, just a little tough to install it

i am doing a build similar to this and it took me 3 minuets to figure out why your cpu was cheaper (R.I.P the Canadian dollar )

That OC-supporting motherboard is too expensive. The money would have been better spent toward a better graphics card when you do buy one, even if it means you can't OC the CPU.

I'd get a Radeon r9 280x, assuming it's well priced in your location. On Amazon, a non-reference r9 280x with a good cooler is only $30 USD than the GTX 760.

Comparison of GTX 760, GTX 770, and r9 280x (Ctrl F for "Crysis 3" to see the fps comparisons)

ASRock B85 Pro4 ATX LGA1150

Cheaper and has solid capacitors.

You can't get a 4670 for that price.

I envy those with Microcenters nearby.

I found the image on google and made a custom stencil, then used spray paint, few layers of white then a good clear coat to protect it from scratching or peeling, took only 5 hours at most.
