I shall consult with my friends on the situation we want to take with users we don't have a direct affiliation with atm. Chances are we are going to be very very strict. Especially with my most recent task of consulting with Marc Watson (@Marc_IRL) about his own FTB server and managing players

We never wanted to do that, the cost of it is heavily outweighed when you get up to a year of rent, sometimes not even that, a 6 core server with 16GB of ram is stupidly expensive to rent.

Performance is fine actually, though forge does better save optimisations. There's no lag at all with the savings, not to mention if there does we can just load a ramdisk. I don't feel pressured into anything more at this time

The thing with EVGA.. they really look so dull :| Its just a square box and all heat has to be dumped out the back, Also everyone seems to have an EVGA sig 2 why not be different :P

I knew you'd be around at some point :D

The parts choices were actually all mine but the case, that is of course personal preference.

The phantoms EPS hole is a fair pain to get a large cable through, he did just want to get it running so didn't pay a great close attention to getting it decent, though I do recommend he does move it to make it look nicer ¬.^

As for the 670 its been the card I am after, though a motherboard was what I needed to change first.

It is on display and was in a crappy old case till recently, the old case had 1 80mm fan mount and that was it, it wasn't quiet at all, and now under load you can just about here it otherwise its deadly silent

Sure do, 70/20 fibre line, and it works fine as a server, been happily running for about a month now actually in the final configuration. There isn't really many players, the server is whitelisted.

The red cable coming down the top to the middle of the motherboard is supplemental PCI-e power, helps when having powerful graphics cards installed

Linux is very picky about the wifi drivers and stuff, you need to do a fair bit of playing around sometimes to get them to work, especially if its a nonstandard wifi setup

The only real benchmark with minecraft is having an 512x texture pack loaded with Sonic Ethers shader mod/water shader/any other shader you can add along side it.. thats the only real thing to push minecraft to the limit

I agree, and as soon as you stream your FPS will be destroyed, live encoding video for streaming is a stressful task on a PC, a 6670 will not cope at all, there is a reason why people buy nice high end graphics cards when streaming, because they are needed.

I doubt you'll have any decent form of FPS on this while streaming.. and video editing will take ages too.. there are much better builds for $900

I'd just be careful sitting close to it, i know from experience that using a TV like screen for PCs gives me headaches (I have a sony TV w/ VA panel as my 3rd monitor, tried using it as my main before i got my IPS and it was a no go)

Shouldn't get anywhere near 350W load, 170W at most, if it fails at that then theres a serious problem..

"acer 120Hz" a model number would be useful, and what discounts you may have had on it.. as you have no completed builds listed i can't assume anything

Where 120Hz monitors sounds great, they don't come cheap.. 60Hz has been standard for a long time, and 60Hz is more than acceptable for most gaming

You are being very rude and childish now, I was giving feedback on the build which is more than you have done. I'd rather not argue over someone else's build, so lets leave our disagreements in our minds now.

Very nice build cable management is A+, but the case isn't being used to its potential with the ATX board, I hope it gets a board that suites it in the future, a case is pretty much for life though, i don't condone you spending extra on it. One thing i want to know, do you have a storage drive in the machine? SSDs fill up mighty fast :)

If you actually use the system in your programs cuda can be very powerful for some operations, I believe they work well with any floating point calculations.

The only thing i have noticed is the Box for your CPU only shows a 3570 (non-k) but you have a 3570k listed, is that just a mistake with the box?

There has been a lot of problems with the FX series temperature sensors being really dodgy, there was someone a few builds back with the same chip and was only showing the package temperature at 10C in an ambient room of 20C which is not possible.

I suspect a sensor is broken, because that is not correct, also do AMD CPUs only have 1 temp sensor? Odd

You definitely need to work on the cable management, the HDDs are in the wrong way... the cables should be hidden away on the other side.. otherwise a balanced build.

10C for temps? Are they adjusted to reflect temps at 0C? If not i really dont find that believable

Not sure where you have your information, but the i3 3225 has about the same Gaming performance as an 8350, and a fair bit cheaper. Also I have a $100 z77 motherboard.. the 3770k has no advantage in gaming performance over the 3570k, and general tasks a basic i3 could perform, the 3570k is still the best gaming chip on the market, there is no doubt about that.
