Description

I want to start of with that these prices are what im guessing it cost, i dont quite remember the cost of all the components in the build, i built this to replace my old computer which was unugradable due to a mITX form factor and a 300w power supply, so i decided on just redoing it all, I've been extremely pleased with this pc, it stays reasonably cool but the fans do ramp up a bit while gaming due to not particularly effective fans and having a lot of heat in the case as well as a lot of overclocked components kicking out heat in the case but the case makes a goo job of hiding the fan noise and so does the noise isolation on the headset. Overall if there was something i would change it would be the gpu, don't get me wrong i really like the 970 and it pleases my every need.. but the MSI edition is... red, which doesn't match the rest of my build, i've been thinking of custom painting it but i've held off for a while now, we'll see how that goes in the future. Update 1: bought some corsair fans for the build and installed them :3 2 AF140's and 1 SP120 for the water cooler, i also used one of the old Fractal fans as an intake in the bottom of the case and im going to use the spare 120mm cooler master fan to do push pull with the water cooler :)

This is a sweet little build you have. Gaming on dual monitors like that, the bezel doesn't bother you?

I think he may only be gaming on one monitor even though he has two. That's what I and some of my friends do. I don't think that a single 970 would be able to run most games dual monitor 60 fps anyway.

The only complaints I have are for the guesstimate prices and the name. There are numerous other builds on this site named "the black knight." It gets old.

did your MSI 970 come with a coupon code for a free game of your choice?

Nope, I guess it depends on the retailer, I'm in Sweden and I'm not sure the offer is available here :\

Where did you get the motherboard? I looked at many online retailers and can't find one in stock.

overclocked and it runs absolutely beautiful, i can crank every game i've put it against on ultra and get over around 90fps avargae on very demanding games and around 120fps on less demanding games
