Description

Well I've had my computer up and running for about 3 weeks now and figured it is time to add it on here. Everything seems to be working great and i paid a total for all my parts $1175 that was everything below shipped to my door.

On the hard drive i must have overlooked it because i thought it was a 7200RPM but Pc part picker says its a 5400 RPM. But i will be upgrading that soon. Guess a little extra storage never hurt anyone :).

Also just ordered a Samsung SD390 monitor 24" Will add it to the list when i get it and see how i like it.

Feel free to leave comments. Thanks.

Pictures was taken with Nikon D7000.

Will probably be doing few more upgrades within next few months.

Yeah Stock cooler will be getting replaced soon. I am needing to buy/build a desk first. Since i have a monitor on the way. Should be here this week.

Also i will be building a NZXT phantom 410 this week for my GF. Her build was on a tight budget. But she wanted the case :).. I will get pics as we build hers also, And post them here.

Nice :) i was going to go with some of the same things, but i was going to go with the Z87-GD65 and a MSI GTX 760 (Highschool student, trying to keep it around $800) but that's a nice build :) any reason for the 2133 RAM? And that case <3 i love it so much, good choice. +1

Ram was on sale when i bought it. I am not totally sure how to over clock it yet. But i am going to look into it later down the road.

I also fell in love wit the case when i saw it and knew i had to use it for my build. I could have saved money with cheaper case but i had to have it lol. It was worth every penny i still admire it lol.

ah, okay. you could always run it at a lower clock if you don't want to OC it, and a case is an investment. always good to spend a bit more for a better case :)

Go to your BIOS, and go to the overclock section. Scroll till you see X.M.P file, and change it to one of them. That'll automatically overclock your ram.

Well done. Good pics. Cooling is a must, and could really finish off the overall look. You have too many pocket knives.

HAHA Yeah i kinda fell in love with Spyderco's. My Favorite is my newest knife the camo/black paramilitary 2.

Crazy, I was about to use the same case, CPU, RAM, and GPU for my future build haha.

Definitely need to get a after market CPU cooler in there, stock coolers sound like vacuum cleaners! Nice build, wish I had the money to make mine, just gotta' wait a little longer. :)

How are the benchmarks?

Awesome build! Helped me a ton in making my final part decision for my first ever build! I've been getting mixed responses on the PSU. Is yours holding up with these components?

Mine is working great. I could not be happier with my system.

I'm building a PC in a few weeks with that PSU and case combo, and if you dont have the cable extensions, does the regular CPU power cable reach the top of the case? Thanks!

  • 67 months ago

I am not sure, i do know i bought everything new and did not need any extra cables or anything. It all worked. So if your buying the parts new you should not have one issue.

But i will say my case LED (Where nzxt lights up went out after 2 months, and they never even emailed me back which i thought was ******.) But other than that my build has worked flawless.

Thanks man, and that's odd about your light failing, and a shame about NZXT's poor service, but thanks again man!

Anytime man, Yeah I read a review on a site I think amazon or new egg about a guy saying his went out and I thought it was a fluke but mine did the same. But other than that the computer seems to be flawless

I would need a new PSU to over clock? Sorry i figured i could over clock it how it was, i would add a after market CPU cooler first of course lol. I have been eyeballing the Cooler master EVO Cooler. I am going to stay away from liquid cooling for now. Kinda scared of it leaking.

umm i heavily overclock my build and my power supply has had no issues at all... ever...

and i have the same PSU and i dont intend to upgrade. it will work fine @OP.

I will look more into it before i overclock. The stock clock seems to be working great so far ( Much faster than my 2011 Macbook pro :)

it can handle it as long as you dont push the barrier and go to the limit of your psu. If you have a 500w system with a 600w psu and you overclock, then yes it is doomed to fail. but if you have lets say a 400w system with a 600w psu, then it should be fine. but dont expect to live on it forever.
