I see you in almost every post/thread i read! You always give some of the best advice!! :) Now i feel a little ashamed for the opinion i gave for this build..! :D
You can go for a 280x if you can go 50ish pounds more.
Used the same case for my build. IMO i think it's an excellent looking case! Indeed, the top cover is a pain in the a**! I wanted to install the extra top fan(using the noise reduction rubber fan mounts), took me 15 minutes with a couple pairs of pliers. Plus, other than the very tight spacing for cable management on the back, i love it!
Oh, great build overall! +1
I will have to agree with the others on this. You could've done way better than this. And as Biernot said, you could've gotten a $50 headset since you don't have a soundcard, you would not hear any difference. I am not saying i made the perfect build, but this is wrong.. You should've posted in the forums for some advice before you build it.
Yes, and since we can remove 70GBP for Windows, he can fit the 7950 in his budget.
Sorry guys, forgot to mention, he will not be paying for Windows since he will be getting them for free from work.
The ideas you gave are very good. He pretty much liked every part you suggested except for the Red RAM. But color is not important since there are varieties of colors out ther, And yes, he'll be sticking with the 7950.
Thank you! :)
yeah, i'll probably fix the cables a little bit on the weekend. but right now i'm trying to find(locally) those sleeves you have in blue.
Right now i'm on GTA V, so no time for PC. But i play BF3, my friend just gave me the Crysis series to play, on Crysis 2 now, Tomb Raider, and in a month BF4. Oh, and Skyrim, finally, a PC where i can install the High resolution textures(my laptop couldn't take them)! :p
wow, even better! that case is awesome! i was looking at that case but it was too expensive($214) where i come from! the sleeved cables are very nice, those details that make the project excellent!
wow... just wow man!! Excellent work! one of the best i've ever seen!! i wish i could cable manage like you did! i love the tubing idea! might just try it myself when i find the time!! and again, great work!!
Thanks! Indeed, i overspend a little more on the RAM and PSU. But overall, I'm very happy with the end result! See you there! :)
It works perfectly! Didn't have to configure it at all, regognized as 1600mhz.
thanks!! Will post better pics later in the day!
thank you! I will try and utilize the space in the HDD Cage for some wires to park there. It is a little tight on the other side now, could barely close the sidepanel. I love this case, but it's a bit harsh on you, cable managing wise.
I've heard of Be Quiet! a lot of times before and I haven't even build another PC before. Maybe never searched for the brand? Anyway, I'm very happy with it and as the name states, it's very quiet and it covers my needs with room to spare! :)
I am using windows 7 professional. I did have a problem with the MOBO ethernet though. it kept reseting every 5 minutes. After some searching, i found out that there was a power management tab on the adapter settings and that i had to untick all the boxes there. All is good now.
really? i wish i knew that.. because everywhere i read it said 1.5v. Plus the 1.65v were cheaper for me to buy.. Well, what's done is done!
Thank you! :)
As for the RAM you suggested, I couldn't use them on Haswell, as intel recommends 1.5v or lower on Haswell. Also, I did want to use RAM with high profile heatsinks, but I wasn't sure if they would fit with the CPU cooler installed.
Yes, the cable management is indeed fair. I will probably use the space in the HDD cage as someone else told me, to hide some wires. Thank you!
Well, I was going to go with a K series at start, but when I changed my mind and was looking for another motherboard, I didn't want to go with the cheapest solution, plus the other boards i found were ASROCK, and i just don't trust the brand. And also the reviews i read on this board were very good, so i just went with this one.
i spent 169 euros. That's roughly 230 dollars. I know i went a little morE on the PSU, but i'm very happy with it! :) I had the psu on my eye for a long time and i couldn't just find something else that would change my mind. Thanks for your input!
Thank you very much!
