Description

Yes, I just referred to myself in the 3rd person lol

What's up guys. I just wanted to share my rig as I finally move away from a budget build into a high-endish Z97 build. This will be primarily used for video editing, gaming and hopefully some GPU benchmarking.

I documented the entire build on my YT channel so you guys can check it out if you wanna see some video of the rig in addition to pics https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbZ2O4IngBgD6hMt-fWSpJWppsaYKZHEM

Thanks to HyperX for supplying the RAM and be quiet! for providing the PSU!

Oh and btw, I won the 290X Lightning in a contest a while back! :D

Let me know what you guys think of the build...

I really love the look of that CPU cooler. Awesome build, very clean.

Bacca 2 points 41 months ago

Great build! One question, do you play CS:GO? If you do, how much fps do you get?

LOVE YOUR CHANNEL!

SLOWION submitter 5 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

I play every now and then. I get around 280fps on average

Yo jerry your videos are sick!

SLOWION submitter 5 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

thanks man

looks like your graphics card could use that extra 6pin cable. Otherwise, +1

SLOWION submitter 5 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

that 6-pin is optional, it's for the big boys. I'm not ready to go down that road just yet :D

Your Lightning looks much better than mine, the reactor core is so ugly.

SLOWION submitter 5 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

yeah, personally not a fan of that reactor either. I think the new Lightning cards (980 Ti) look even better though

LaputaCake 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

Yea, some people were saying they look like the G1 Gaming but i like them. I was also thinking of painting mine and making a new backplate. Nice videos btw.

Build looks great! Good job on managing all those extra wire lengths due to the extensions. I'd recommend painting the ends of the cables going into your psu black, so those extra colors don't take away and grab to much attention. Overall nice job. +1

SLOWION submitter 5 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Eventually I want to get full replacement cables that are all black. That should resolve that issue!

Mr_LoL 1 point 38 months ago

Nice

Fsylar 1 point 38 months ago

New subscriber jerry. Love that cpu cooler

frostmourne7 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

great clean build! really nice.

is that a monitor speaker? what's the thing beside that? is that the one powering or controlling the volum for that thing?

SLOWION submitter 5 Builds 2 points 35 months ago

They are Micca Club 3 speakers, the thing with the orange bottom is the mixamp for my Astro A40 headset and the thing to the left of the speaker is an SMSL SD-793II headphone amp.

The thing that actually powers my speakers is a Lepai LP-2020A+ (not pictured) but it's underpowered for my speakers so I don't recommend it.

Very clean build +

Camranatic101 2 Builds 1 point 15 months ago

you have a gtx 1070 ryzen build and another ryzen build and a ryzen sleeper pc and a rx 580 build (had). so why use the r9 290x in this one

SLOWION submitter 5 Builds 1 point 15 months ago

This build is old, I built this in like 2015

Camranatic101 2 Builds 1 point 15 months ago

O I wasn't sure if it was your main, it's the only build you had labled as your main so idk
