Description

Built this pc for my Wife, she does a bit of everything on it. Plays games with me, uses photoshop, wacom tablet, browses the net. It used to be a custom pc from a company but the only thing left from that is the storage drive (1 tb drive) Everything else is new except I gave her my older 690 which runs fine for what she plays.

The newest parts are the new MB and CPU along with the ram. After i swapped them in, decided to get a new cooler which i'm more than happy with. Previous cooler was the first H100i and swapped it with the new h100i v2 and there was a big difference. Currently i have it sitting at 4.6ghz OC at 1.32 volts. Temps on all cores idle around 16-18 degrees and using Aida 64, it never reaches 67 degrees. I have headroom to go further but i'm satisfied with the results.

Not much else to say about the build other than working with the case was simple..i did have the first edition of the case so i had to swap the light controller with a new one Phanteks sent me at no cost so it could retain the light memory when it was off.

I know you gave her the 690 to hint what she should be giving you ;)

That 690 is a BEAST! Two 680 chips in there, and it performs similarly to a GTX 980 as of today! +1

It's an awesome card definitely, I just wish the 4gb of ram was true lol. But ever since I got it, it has run solid.

It's a beast of a card, but the 4GB thing sucks for most games. My gtx 690 fried and I got a gtx 980 to replace it and the 980 is a much better card in terms of power consumption, temperatures, and performance in most modern games.

Oh yeah, I hear you there!, When the Titan X came out I replaced the 690 with that in my rig , and gave the 690 to the wife that replaced her 580. lol the Titan X is a monster compared to the 690.
