I got it on sale during the mining boom when SSD prices were bananas. I'm sorry. I'll probably be getting a 500gb m.2 Samsung soon.
Excellent, #1 snuggle buddy
I dropped it back to 4.8ghz at 1.275v and it's been running great. I did an hour of prime on it before gaming but I prefer to just game and see if it crashes (I don't have any other hobbies so I get bored). Played the Witcher 3 for about 8 hours straight on Sunday and regularly play siege 3-4 hours at a time no problems at all.
My understanding is that g sync will do it's thing and the 1070 pulls 60-70 frames on AAA titles. So theoretically i would never come close to 165hz right?
It's actually the Kingston Fury, I was just too lazy to pick the specific Kingston I actually have. And it's a lot faster than my HDD, so I'm fine with it.
If you don't care about anything higher than 60hz/fps then don't get that monitor. its 144hz.
I probably wouldn't either, but what I meant was I was expecting a normal PC case and I was blown away when I saw that it was a desk case!
Except FOUR 980's.
I was extremely unprepared for the case
You're not hardcore unless you use two mice
I use h100i with mine. Keeps it quite cool and not too much fan noise. If fan noise bothers you then I would recommend some noctua fans to replace the stock fans on the cooler.
But my case fans can get louder than my cooler fans.
Oh yeah. I forgot about that.
Well if the cards glow white, then yeah definitely white in the cooler (: rig looks so sick
I only wish you went with the msi card to put more red accent into it (:
And you better have red led on your kraken's cpu block
Personally I would have got cheaper ram. (Don't need 2133. Overkill.) Put that money towards an fx 8320 instead, you dont want or need an apu since you have a graphics card and the 8320 is a great cpu. That wifi card is overkill as well. You basically paid $80 for a wifi channel that is hardly used yet. (AC)
That's just my thoughts on what I would've done. (Dont worry too much, I have a few regrets about my first build)
Your rig should play nicely!!
This link should help
Nice build (: i have the same cpu and mobo (: and case! I love it. It does seem a bit crowded with a bulky air cooler in it though.
Or anywhere inside your case, for that matter.
I just had the stock cooler on it... But I had bought everything at the same time, So I just RMA'd a bunch of parts. First the mobo because it was visibly destroyed, and then I found out the cpu was ruined so I sent that back. So I finally got everything up and running and found out one of my ram sticks are shot so I had to send both back since it was a pair.
Nightmare. Haha. It was down for over a month.
As soon as I got it up and running again I put an H100i on it
Is it possible to rotate your cpu cooler to blow air out the case?
You don't want hot air to blow right onto your gpu
Just two thoughts. When you upgrade, get a gtx 970 instead of another 760 and pawn off the 760. It'll be a bigger performance boost than dual 760 and eat up less power.
Also, 8GB of ram is plently for gaming right now, you won't need more unless you do things like video editing and such.
Other than that it looks great :)
Good call going with intel.
Wish I had. My fx 8350 blew up almost my entire pc after a month.
The best all in one liquid cooler is the Kraken x61.
Its windows 8.1 pro. That one is normally 170ish and about 10 bucks cheaper tham standard
Uh, idk. probably an R7 card
i added the cooler in later, a month after all the other parts
that card wasn't out when i got my parts.
but yeah, there are a lot of things i wish i did differently. but i guess that's how you learn
cause i didn't initially put the water cooler in. that came later
Well, I just did it based off of 2 different temp monitors.
The point is that it severly cut down my temps.
