Are you recording to the same storage device the game files are on? If the system needs to read the game files and simultaneously write the video file to the same storage device, it will impact performance.
Been great so far! I have a 1080p IPS for my secondary, and side-by-side, I don't feel like the colors are very different. I can see the difference, but not so much that it bothers me.
Yeah the temps for my CPU stick around 33-15 Celsius. The GPU hovers around 70. So they're not problematic, but I don't feel like games should stress my system this much.
Just got this monitor for Christmas to go with my 1080. A little over budget, but I personally love it. https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/zj8Zxr/asus-monitor-90lm00u0b01370

I have the Kraken X61 on my i5 6600K and I never hear it running. With it's variable speed pump, its actually quieter than most.
The 4690 is base clocked at 3.5 GHz where the 6500 is clocked at 3.2 GHz. That being said, I do not know how they benchmark against each other. I went with the older card so you could get some cheaper DDR3 RAM. Personally, I would get the 6500 because it is built on the newer architecture and uses the faster DDR4 RAM. Since it is newer, one would think that support for it will be around longer as well.
I see you've already ordered the Hyper 212 EVO, but since you plan to overclock and if you have the extra budget, I would consider the NZXT Kraken X61. It's an AIO cooler that has a variable drive pump so it's not as loud as other AIO. As an added bonus, the pump has RGB lighting so you can make it purple.
Edit: See this build for the pump with purple lighting
A little over, but you could start with something like this and wait for a few parts to go on sale...

It's definitely not dead. There are still a ton of servers with regular players.
1) There are only ~7 billion people on earth.
2) I see your point and it's a fair one, but that doesn't change the fact that copying the game and selling it is against the EULA
For example, we shall look at the Battlefield 4 Software End User License Agreement.
I point you in the direction of Section 1: Parts A (which defines the rights you have and when they terminate) and Part D (which states that it may not be copied and re-distributed)
FarCry 4 you can buy the wing-suit for a fairly cheap price and jump off the tall mountains of the Himalayas.
Looks solid! It by no means needs an AIO cooler, but if you intend to do some serious overclocking, it wouldn't hurt to look into one. Like I said though, it doesn't need one. Good luck on your build!
I have this card in my build and it works great!
Yeah its an amazing game. You should check out the reddit if you're interested in seeing lots of great cities and assets. r/citiesskylines if you're interested!
I have the NZXT Kraken X61 in my rig and I love it. No issues and work well. RGB lighting is a nice bonus.

As far as wiring goes, they typically won't work if the two outlets are on different poles, but work great if they are on the same pole. If you look at the breaker box for your house, the breakers on the left are all on the same pole. The ones on the right are on the same pole. If the breaker that controls each outlet is on the same side as the other, then they're on the same pole. The reason they don't work if they are on different poles is because the two circuits aren't connected within the house and the signal gets diffused at the transformer. Hope this helps and good luck!

Sweet looking build!
+1 for the name!
Nice Build! +1
If you buy the retail version of the OS from a store like BestBuy, it comes on USB drive
The retail version from BestBuy is a USB stick. That would be the easiest way if you're not buried in snow yet.
Thank You and good luck on your build!
I haven't stress tested my pc, but I do have a Kraken X61 and my liquid temps normally stay in the 30's and I haven't seen my i5 6600K get out of the low 40's, but I do know that the 6700K runs hotter than the 6600K. But as far as liquid temps, that's where mine stays. What is your pump rpm when you stress test?
The water pump should be plugged into the CPU fan header on the MOBO
Thanks for the advice!
Thanks, it was!
I personally like the Kraken X61. It has a variable speed pump so it's not so loud if the CPU is not under load. Also as a bonus, the logo on the pump lights up and you can change the color using the software.
I have the NZXT Kraken X61 in my S340 and it looks great without interfering with RAM
Then you'll be very happy with this build. It will blow away your consoles.
Do you have a hard drive and operating system?
Not sure what you're using for 3D Modeling, but I use SolidWorks and it is memory thirsty. I'd go ahead and grab at least 16 GB of RAM.
Not RGB, but really nice keyboard
Nice build! Looks very similar to a build I'm looking to start pretty soon. I see you have a windowed case and if ascetics are a concern and budget isn't, for a build this nice I'd consider going ahead and doing liquid cooling. I see you have the corsair mouse and keyboard so you could look at the corsair H100i for cooling, but I recommend the NZXT Kraken X61.
Build looks good! Just a few thoughts:
- Corsair H100 is a good liquid cooling unit, but the Kraken X61 is generally considered the king and has some nice features you may want to look at since you're going for a high end cooler. Side note, if you're not going to overclock off the bat, the cooler isn't necessary until you do.
-Most people say you don't need more than 8 GB of RAM if you're gaming, which is true, but I say you can never have too much RAM
- Power supply is very important. I'd suggest a EVGA or Corsair PSU since they are generally considered reliable.
- Your monitor is 1080p, but your graphics card is very well capable of 1440p. So with that monitor you won't get the full potential of your graphics card
If you're only gaming, I'd get an i5 4690K and put some money into a new graphics card if you want the most improvement in your gaming. The gpu is where the magic happens. Possibly anR9 390? The most bang for your buck right now IMO.
If you use the computer for other things such as video editing or CAD, stick with the i7
A single 970 will run a game at 1080p on one monitor and normal use on second screen. For 1140p, I'd ask someone with more knowledge than myself. If you want to do 1440p gaming on both monitors, I'd suggest 980ti or better
Thanks for that comparison! It looks like Skylake is the way to go, now I just have to decide whether I want to do an i5 or an i7!
I'll also be doing CAD work. So without an i7 hyper threading, the extra RAM will be nice
