its fantastic. Never had a problem with any game in 1080p, only problems with hairworks in witcher 3, but I didn't see any point of using it, so I turned it off. Can run BF4 and SW Battlefront ultra settings over 60fps, hitting over 100fps sometimes. Never had any stuttering. If you are into only pure performance, I would go for a cheaper Air-cooler and a cheaper motherboard that still has all the features you need. I sold off this white motherboard and the watercooler when I didn't need my PC to look good, saved me around 200 USD for no extra performance. Rocking a z97-P Asus motherboard and the Be-quiet Pure rock now, 4.0ghz overclock without any problems. Can also still run the 4.5ghz overclock, but it gets a little warm so I don't want to keep it there. Performancedifference is also very small from 4.0->4.5 :)

yeah if you look at the cheapest price the 4690k is 229, so your argument is invalid :)

A lower clocked, non-overclockable i7 vs a higher clocked, overclockable i5 for gaming? i5 all day long... the 4790k is around 100$ more expensive now, not worth it (for gaming that is).

pff the ssd is plenty fast. I've used it for a long time, only now I upgraded to a Hyperx Fury ssd, not a noticable difference. My dad has a better ssd, his computer is not faster than mine. Yes when you transfer huge data-files and stuff the v300 is not fast, but for windows and just applications in general I find it more than fast enough, and way faster than any mechanical drive. Boots into windows in a matter of seconds.

good to see that its not just mine Asus Strix 970 that is sagging... Really not happy with the card, a lot of coil whine and it sags a lot :(

never take that cooler off. Would trade my whole computer just to have that card on my shelf.. :D the g10 is also bad for vrm cooling, which could mean bad stability and crashes at high temps!

I just think it looks nice, and the colors match so I figured why not :) had to power the lights with molex, so just bundled the cables on the side of the psu and used a molex to sata adapter to power the ssd. Now I can also close the rear side panel without pressing it because there are no other cables in the way! :)

damn, that's a good looking computer. Really jelous, dude :D My only gripe would be that the enermax-logo on the fan is facing the "wrong" way, other than that it looks sublime...

Comment reply on SnakeTbh's Completed Build: Furnace v8

it really depends... Most of all too much thermal paste makes it so that the contact between the cpu block and the cpu is not as good as if you had less paste, meaning you get higher temperatures, which in the long run can cause problems. Also, I don't think its a good thing having paste spread other places where it shouldn't be, like on transistors and stuff surrounding the cpu-socket, as it would make it so that these things won't cool themselves properly.

there are no fans intaking air, so I really doubt that's the reason :P

Very nice looking :) Good choice to swap powersupplys: It's the thing that keeps your computer running, and buying a bad quality one could mean that it will blow up one day. Now you have a very good warranty and a brand that is known for great components. One tip though: Watch some videos on youtube or pictures online regarding applying thermal paste. To me, that looks like far too much thermal paste. The general best way would be a small dot, the cpu and cooler should not swim in thermal paste like it looks like its doing now!

should be good enough. My dad had a 10x worse psu that worked perfectly for ~5 years, nothing to worry about unless you overclock the gpu and cpu hard

PS: Very nice choice of components! I have the same case myself, easiest case to build in and very good temperatures due to no drive cages and stuff blocking airflow :)

There are arrows on the fans showing in which way the blades turn and where the air goes (not on all fans, but yours does have arrows), and also almost all fans push air in the direction of where the supports brackets are!

Very nice build. Just be warned, all your fans are atm. mounted as exhaust fans, creating a very bad environment for your components. My advice would be to flip the two fans on the cpu cooler around so that they can intake fresh air and also cool down the internals of the computer. That should lead to a more balanced type of airflow inside the case, and often cause positive pressure (better for dust build up) due to more air being pushed inside than air pushed out. :)

I have my fans on the asus strix card always on because the card goes up to 60 degrees as soon as I start watching a youtube video.. So annoying hearing the fans spin up to 1000 rpm and then slowing down again, and then repeating this process over and over again :P

on torture tests the 390 pulls around 140w more than the 970, which is more than you would be drawing if you were to overclock an 8350... (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/sapphire-nitro-r9-390-8g-d5,4245.html)

you don't recommend overclocking but you say he should've gone with a more power-hungry gpu? aaaaaaaaaaalrighty then :D

fan won't spin up at all because of low load, so works as a passive psu almost all the time.

Its the progression of the build, started out with cheaper parts and upgraded from time to time :) The first picture is from early November, but I started out with much cheaper parts around May/June.

its for the LEDs. Couldn't fit it where it was supposed to go, so just taped it there so it would sit somewhere :P Now the LEDs are acting weird only a few hours of being used, flickering and stuff.. Really low quality, would not recommend

yeah that could be a solution too! Just keep in mind you need dustfilters on the intake fans so that you wont have too much dust buildup. My thought would be to just remove those fans, but then again, they light up so nicely it would ruin a lot of the look :)

Also, then you can add more intake fans so that you get positive pressure, resulting in less dust build-up. Some of the hot air will then be able to escape through the vents over the rear fan, and also the part beside the graphics cards! :)

very nice looking build. Just a tip: You would see better temperatures if you removed the fans that exhaust air in front of the cpu cooler. These fans draw nice cool air out of the system hindering your hyper 212 evo from getting nice cold air. I had 2 fans up there like you and when I felt over the top of the case I could feel the cold air getting out. When I removed the fans my temps dropped by 4-5 degrees under load. With a tower cooler like this you should only have 2 exhaust fans, one in the rear and one in the top left. :)

with the fact that you can undervolt and overclock an i5 4690k to 4-4.1 ghz and get lower temps than stock, going with a non-k processor seems like a waste of money, unless you don't want to spend a couple of hours finding a stable overclock that is.

it acts as an exhaust fan, very common on older systems that don't make a lot of heat. i5 4460 is not a powerhouse and this setup should be cooler and better due to the fact that this case lacks good fan-support and general airflow. :)

true, a noctua nh-u12s has problems cooling that cpu at stock, only capable of giving base clock speeds and 67 degrees load temps... Hyper 212 evo is even worse when used at heavily overclocked cpu's (9590 is basically a good binned 8350 with crazy voltages) :P
