Sorry man, I gotta do it. It's HDD, not HHD. Hard Disk Drive.
And, recurring, not reoccuring.
My OCD was causing twitches.
Love the nostalgia though. +1
The D-Frame 2.0 comes with a custom power supply. The SIII-1065W power supply designed specifically for the D-Frame 2.0.
If you are going to spend over 2 grand on a build, why not spend the extra couple bucks on the GTX 1080?
Just a heads up, if you plan on overclocking that 6300, you will need a different motherboard. The M5A78L-M/USB3 is a great board, but not for overclocking. I tried with mine but it kept throttling because it couldn't handle temp increases.
“better use of square volume and unit cost.”
Isn't that an oxy-moron? As volume is a cubic measurement? Area is a square measurement?
Enermax Liqmax II cooler you say? Sure looks like the LEPA AquaChanger 240 to me in the pictures. I call SHENANIGAN'S!
For some reason my graphics drivers keep crashing when I try to run Heaven, on Fire Strike I scored pretty low, around 5600 I think. Running Sky Diver I get a more respectable score, 15879 I believe it was.
Great build! I wish I had gotten into PC building when I was your age. Can't go wrong with the 6300, I've been running mine for almost 3 years now, on my 3rd rig with the same chip, it's the only thing I haven't upgraded to be honest. Overclocking capabilities are fantastic, had mine up to 4.5 GHz but brought it back down to 4.0 because the temps were getting a little high, water cooling would help with that though.
+1 Enjoy your build!
Indeed, I do plan on upgrading the CPU at some point. Not really sure which one I am going to go with yet. With all of my old parts I am planning on building a rig for my son, when I get the green light on doing that, I will most likely upgrade to a better CPU for myself, then just recycle the 6300 in the rig for my son.
I wanted to do the cables myself, but i barely had time to get this done. Getting the cables custom made also allowed for easier cable management. I was able to get the cables at the exact length i needed. No excess cable to hide. As for benchmarks, i haven't tested it yet. I will get back to you with some Firestrike and Heaven results.
Ha, wish i had thought of that.
Head over to ensourced.net and see if they can make something up for you. Just bought a set of custom cables for my rig, they are fantastic quality and look great.
Got her up to just a hair over 4.5 Ghz right now, may have a little more room to go higher with just the 212 EVO still.
The m5a78l mobo from asus has integrated graphics . No need for an APU.
Gets the job done, will be upgrading soon though.
Indeed. I may look into that in the future. Thanks!
