Description

I built the computer for gaming, streaming, and using it as my recording studio computer. Works well under load. Games like dying light never loose 60 frames while streaming, and CS:GO never goes under 160 frames while streaming. Without streaming I hit 200+ frames on Cs:GO

I already owned a EVGA 770 4gb super clocked dual acx graphics card in my previous computer so I put it in this one. I'm still trying to get my hands on a second one, but it seems that everyone is currently out of stock. What a pity. If it doesn't come in stock within the next few months I might just save up for dual EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Classified ACX 2.0 or just kick myself in the but and over the next year save up for a EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN Z. Why because i can.

Also for the simple fact of never having to worry about the computer under load I'm thinking about getting another set of G.Skill ram. Be warned! the dimm slot 1 for the ram is obstructed by the crosshair h100i slightly. My first boot only booted with 8 gigs of ram because it wasn't connected all the way. I moved it to dimm slot three. when i upgrade to 32gb ram and it dimm slot 1 still isn't reading I'll have to take off the crosshair h100I and turn it around so that it will be facing a different direction where the liquid comes through at. Currently I am not overclocking anything. there is no immediate need too. I have pushed the card on a massive clock and had it hang up and auto stop the clocking once because I wanted to see if it worked. No damage was done to the card. I only use one of the stock crosshair fans that were designed to go on the liquid cooling unit, but I put as a case fan intake next to the two noctura fans hooked up to the radiator as an intake. Currently the front fan, side fan, and top fans are all intakes with the back fan as an exhaust I also had one fan inside the case pulling air from the front fan to the back of the case. a nifty slot that cooler master gives you. I'm possibly looking at replacing all the fans for possibly higher rpm fans, and to have a push pull configuration on the radiator as an intake. I'm attempting to make this computer the run as cool as possible for future overclocking. Surprisingly having a Evga 770 does not hold me back on new releases and trumps forward and still providing 60 frames minimum with newer games being released. For a EVGA enthusiast it makes me quite proud for sticking with EVGA.

I'm also looking into getting a backup hd for the solid state, either a high rpm or solid state terabyte (with a terabyte backup for the ssd) as a third ssd.

The pc runs windows 7 ultimate and takes absolutely no time to boot up. When i boot my computer on i switch my lg 32" tv on that I use as a main monitor and the computer will already be waiting for me to put a password in to log the computer in. After that its another ten seconds and the pc is fully loaded.

If you're looking into getting a high airflow case with supurb cable management look no further. The cooler master HAF X will give you just that. My mother board is a EATX and it gives you more room for a BIGGER motherboard! The airflow on this case is phenomenal, the ability for different size hd's is excellent, and you have more than enough slots in the front for extra cd drives/ goodies. I could fit a bigger fan controller unit if I wanted in here, but I am absolutely happy with my Lamptron. side note! I had my noctura fans for the liquid cooling unit plugged into the fan control unit for a little while. The initial boot will have all the fans set to 0 RPM. THEY WILL NOT SPIN. You have to rush putting all the fans to automatic first. My computer auto shut down because of it. It was kinda scary. I have moved the noctura fans to the motherbored cpu fan slots because I wanted to hook the crosshair fan as an extra intake. I also have one slot open on my fan control unit now. The build overall was kind of pricey, but I am no more than happy I went ahead and didn't cheat out on anything! I will be building a new computer in the next few years, but not to replace this one. I will be building one for the sole purpose of being a recording studio pc with a 6 core i7 possibly and yet another evga board in a cooler master case with liquid cooling and 64 gigs of ram.

Where does it say he bought it for that price? It states where the cheapest place you can buy the same drive from who's to say that's where and how much he got it for

That's literally the only price that's on his list. Why else would he leave it there?

Maybe hes not experienced with pcpartpicker so he doesn't know how to put a custom price or if its an old one put $0.0

Why would you even want a Titan Z? The GTX 980 would outperform it in games.

Yeah but you could save money and get better performance. Seriously. No need to be a douchebag.

I'm so jealous for that motherboard. Would like to see the finished build from the inside. +1

it's a shame that it's more expensive than the cpu itself

True that. But it's gorgeous.

I didn't set myself a limit. I went all out on my build to upgrade from a xps 420 with a q6600. Turned out so nicely I think :D

Oh, sorry, I didn't read the description since I didn't have much time and I didn't see one listed in the list and didn't see one in the pictures.

Yeah, I'm waiting for tax return to purchase a newer gpu :3 My friends might have talked me into getting three 960's, but I'm going to see what I have left after purchasing more recording studio stuff for my small label. I'm also thinking about preordering a GTX 980 K|NGP|N for some nice ocing

Never go with sli when you can get a single more powerful card especially 3 960s. Although 2 970s is better than one 980 however id save my money and get a 980 and sli those

  • 60 months ago

Yeah, but so many 970's problems right now

  • 60 months ago

Ok, so before people knew about this people loved their 970s, now after this was discovered people hate them, but did their gaming experience change? No. JayzTwoCents did a video on this and he could only get the problem to occur on Shadows of Mordor t max settings, 1440p, with a high res texture pack. And it only arose in high activity scenarios. So unless this description fits you or you play games like very heavily modded Skyrim then you should experience no problems.

I absolutely have no problems and absolutely love my EVGA 770 4gb Sc. I actually want to get a second, but the only problem is that all the in-store retailers around me are out of stock, and all the websites are out of stock. Some people on amazon still want 500+ for one too. I play a heavily modded Skyrim with no problems at all with framerates and run arma 3 at 50-60 frames. If I can find a new one for less than five hundred I might just consider getting a second 770 again
