Description

The case is a Best Buy Rocketfish all aluminum and a 2 loop custom watercooling setup with 2 MCP355 pumps, Black Ice Extreme 360 and 240 rad, 10 Rad fans in a push/pull setup, D-Tek Fusion CPU block and 2 MCW82-7900 series GPU blocks... The video cards are a pair of Powercolor 7950 PCS's, but they are not listed so the R9-280's are close to the same..

Ram is 16gb's of Samsung Wonder Ram.

is that just a random fan dangling near your CPU? I can't really tell

It's a 4000 rpm Delta fan cooling the VRM's and it's mounted to my D-Tec water block

Great build! +1 only question is about the PSU how good is it, I know Corsair and EVGA are the best brands.

Corsair and EVGA are not necessarily the best brands, (personally, I think they are, but for reasons other than build quality). XFX is a very good brand. Pretty much, Seasonic is the best manufacturer of PSUs. Corsair's, EVGA's, and XFX's High end PSUs are all actually Seasonic. The lower end ones (e.g. CX series) are not the same. Here is a list of the true manufacturers of all the PSUs out there: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/power-supply-oem-manufacturer,2913-10.html

Super Flower also make some great power supplies as far as I'm aware.

My vote would go to Seasonic as one of the best brands PSU's and this XFX is a rebranded Seasonic.

Thanks for a reply Mr. OP, I know alot of Seasonic's PSU's are branded to other companies. (Hallelujah, huh? Seasonic be expensive xD)

If your pushing your rig with a large overclock then paying for a good PSU will be worth it.

I have ran at 5.4ghz and benched at 5.3ghz with no worries...

XFX actually makes pretty good power supply, surprising.

seasonic is one of the best as they make them for many manufacturers as Killeneminem said.

Dont. get the new gtx 970 with a good discount and you will gt a huge performance boost and also more efficiency. :D

Im on a highly strict budget and have decided to go mostly CPU performance to begin with and upgrade the GPUs later. The reason i was looking at these was because the Fry's near me has them on sale for $112

If you talking about the r9 280x by powercolor, they're good. Esp for the price. Pretty much 1080p/55-60fps/High settings on AC:IV, and that's a **** optimized game. On AMD Optimized, its like pretty much max / 60-70 fps / 1080p (Hitman Absolution/Dirt Showdown) and crossfire is like 120 fps, AMD optimized.

http://imgur.com/a/2RLmj#0 My 8350 rig. The fan cooling your VRM is kinda silly but if you feel it's necessary then go for it I guess lol +1 for your build. Also, I have the same board haha My on board audio died on me though like 2 weeks ago however :'(

RMA it. Asus does give 5 year warranties on these.

  • 67 months ago

I got the ability to RMA it, like I submitted a request and all that but I have a xonar DX and it works fine so I figure, why spend like 3 weeks with no mother oard and have to tear apart my PC for this? Sometime in the future when I have time to have no PC I'll RMA it. I have another 4 years haha

True. I have to RMA mine since it won't boot with any RAM above 1600MHz, luckily I have a spare PC with a Core 2 Quad Q8400 and 8gb DDR2.

That blows. Yeah it's not very TUF at all, I should've gotten the G990fxa ud3 or ud7, better looking boards and better onboard audio and better features. You live and you learn haha

I got mine openboxed for $75, so it's not like I expected perfection.

Nice build and color scheme!

Why have one monitor vertical? I see people do it but never understand why, just curious.
