4.4 was the highest i got, but i dont remember what the temps were. I don't run it overclocked normally because it puts out lots of heat into my room. The max temps were under 60 is all I remember sorry
If sag really matters that much to you, then getting a mini would be a good idea. However, they will be hotter and maybe louder than a normal size card.
Love the case (though i may be biased) and i love seeing black and white color schemes used for PCs. The overall look appears well thought out. It's always neat seeing someone use a CRYORIG cooler, they look and perform great and are priced well.
Can you elaborate on the case paint job, the white box inside the case, and some of your audio equipment? Your setup looks well thought out.
It looks very clean and fits everything fine. My only complaints would be the lack of any noise dampening... The back of the case looks very open, and I suspect that lets out a lot of noise from my fans. Overall, I love this thing! I would hope you like it as much as I do!
I have to agree with this comment. There's no reason to spend more for an APU if a separate graphics card is going to be added. Getting an Athlon would save money by not having integrated graphics.
Maybe the fan is actually pulling air through the block, so that the air actually goes out the top of the case... Not really sure how this guy set up his fan though.
Thank you! Do you mean the power supply cable extensions? I found them on amazon, the name of one of them is "Silverstone Tek Sleeved Extension Power Supply Cable with 1 x 6-Pin to PCI-E 6-Pin Connector (PP07-IDE6R)." The 8 pin extender model is PP07-PCIR.
That's the sturdiest and cleanest case I've ever seen. The blue and green complement each other so well, while the white really brings out the appearance of the whole build. Your pictures really mesmerized me for a good 20 minutes.
I've never heard of a store helping customers assemble their computer. That has got to be the best customer service ever. That case is stunning
Seeing your build reminded me to update mine lol. Our builds look so similiar! I've always wanted to try out the 860k, it looks like the best cpu for the dollar. Great work on the cable management
My old EVGA gtx 460 was like that. There are some cards like that out there
I believe it is because some GPUs may have cables running out of the end of the card instead of the top.
jacob is saying that your attitude is the problem, not your "facts." You really should hop off your high horse when trying to have a discussion with someone.
I didn't know the 7970 and 280x could be crossfired, that's pretty neat. I personally like how quirky this build is. The graphics cards don't match (one of them even has an aftermarket cooler), there's color-changing leds, and the case is part ORANGE!! Makes me wonder what kind of person you are lol
Those cable combs are incredible. After seeing this, I just ordered some for my computer. Also may I ask what camera you used to take these photos?
those are great prices you got on some of the parts
I think black would look the best, because it would be subtle with the rest of your build. Red would also look good and match your ram, but I think white would be too out of place
If you want to go for the braided look, Silverstone makes cable extensions that can make your cables look custom. I'm using them in my build for my 6 pin and 8 pin GPU connectors. They work for all power supplies, but can be a bit pricey. Your setup looks incredibly clean!
Those prices are a steal!!
If you are having trouble overclocking with your bios, I would suggest you find a youtube video of someone overclocking that cpu on an Asus motherboard. You can then just follow those steps. The sticker you have on the case made me laugh harder than i should've lol
The color scheme looks very unique and tasteful, and your pc fits your intended uses perfectly. well done!
Looks a lot more expensive than it really is. Love your attention to details
Your entire setup looks clean, and your wiring is great! It's hard to believe this is your first build lol gj
I thought motherboards only used ram in dual channel configuration, like when they are used in pairs. I guess I was wrong lol. love your builds tho
tbh, I've never heard of anyone having 12gb of ram before
3 sticks of ram in a dual channel configuration works?
It's a matte black with glossy red accents on the inside. Thanks!
Sadly, I only get about 40 fps on BF4 because I use a high resolution and 8x MSAA
Sorry, I didn't know I could do that.. But I actually paid $90 for the SSDs :( The rest of the prices are pretty much right
I use corsair link to control my cooler fans, and my case fans only spin at 700 rpm. I only have noise issues because my computer is placed right next to my head. My next upgrade will hopefully be a platinum rated PSU
I believe the psu itself is made by Enermax
You should try moving the cables to the other side of the case so they can be hidden. Air should also be pushed through the heatsink, not pulled through.
Tbh, that upside down ssd and the sideways heatsink would drive me nuts. Your cpu is overkill if you plan on just gaming. Same about the RAM. Your fps won't be any different than if you were to use an intel i5 since most (if any) games won't use the hyperthreading feature.
I think if you can tuck in any of the excess white cables, it will look a bit neater. Also, reading that you had some issues with installing the cooler, I hope you remembered to remove the factory applied thermal compound before adding your own! Your specs are amazing
I have the same case, but your cable management is a million times better than mine!
