Thanks for the quick response! I'm sorry but i dont understand, what do you mean make it that way? Would that proc perform anywhere near as good as the 4690k? Also, no overclocking if i remember correctly?
Thanks! to be honest, I don't think so, i normally take off the side glass when i'm playing VR, as it tends to get a bit hot, but other than that it's all good
Yes, they are! And thank you!
It is pretty close to the glass, but honestly, I haven't seen any heating issues arise from this -- It seems the air flows pretty well if you have fans exiting out the top and rear.
i would say yes, you could if you wanted to
Holy Smokes thats some serious commitment to name creation! I must say, Icy Ivy sounds like a stripper from Poland, haha. Thanks for the ideas!
I have almost the same exact set-up except for the GPU in mine is a 970. I would guestimate around $600-800 low to high.
bows Thank you! Be sure to vote it up!
I concur! I was seeing too much RGB around, so I had to step it up for my 3rd build!
Thanks for the kind words! I appreciate it!
Thanks! It's from Puget Systems -- I didn't want to do some free advertising so I painted it, i'll probably cut out "White Forest" in vinyl and put it on there so the name is somewhere!
I'm honestly unsure, I would assume there is some difference, because it says it's only made for the 550/650GS, but you'd have to ask cablemod support. they're pretty good at pointing you in the right direction for your power supply.
One does not simply "not really care for the cable management" -- Honestly, it's pretty easy, it might take maybe 10 extra minutes to just route the cables places. If you give me your address, i'll seriously send you some velcro zipties to at least clean it up some. My OCD pains me to see a beautiful case like this!
Any update here? My build is almost finished. Thanks!
one thing i just thought of, does that MOBO support dual monitors? I see the dual outputs, but not sure if that's all that's required to support it? sorry for the silly question!
i'm good with about 500gb of storage, i do for sure want SSD -- We have a dedicated NAS that most of the files sit on that I network to, so anything over 500gb would be overkill. Can you rework this with 16gb of memory instead of 8? Thanks so much for the opinion here!
I just can't get behind that -- You'd be the only person in existence saying you dont have enough room to run the CPU cable behind the mobo -- Something isn't right here if this is the best cable management option available....
Congrats on your first build, but man use the cable management features that come with the case for free! get all those cables behind the wall!
You know, i'm suprised, but i REALLY love the way the ITX board in an ATX case looks -- it looks very clean. Honestly, I think this build is beautiful the way it is. Of course, having the red flow to the CPU would look awesome as well, but i'd be pretty satisfied if I were you with this one. That thing is just beautiful!
did you move the PC once it was powered on? the HDD clicking isn't a good thing, that's generally a sign of it going out. Download crystal disk info for free and see if it shows any errors -- Just open it up and you'll see it. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IT BACKED UP ASAP if you can. Let me know if you need any help
i had that gpu for a week while my strix 970 was being repaired, and I didn't find it to be any louder at all. It performed almost exactly the same as my strix card too, so I think you did just fine. Also, this build will last you a while, even at 1440p gaming. If you are eventually wanting to go 4k, then yes, you'll have to do some upgrading, but other than that, you have a very nice build here. If you DO decide to get rid of the case, let me know and I'll take it off of your hands.
This is a cool build, but yeah, that's assassin's creed, so not sure you can call it project deadpool :) Also, 12TB of storage? is that necessary? I have I think 4TB, and it's just a collection of hard drives i've picked up along my PC building journey, I throw them in just to have it, is that the same thing you've done here? This is a super clean build, though, THANK YOU for cable management - i can't believe so many people spend so much money and don't drop an extra $100 on sleeved cabling! Good build!
exactly what i was thinking haha!
just out of curiousity, why only 1080p gaming? I have ALMOST this exact build, and it will play literally anything at 1440p. Are you limited by your monitor, because I dont think it's the build! Good job!
Beautiful -- So do tell us how your first loop went? Any issues? Anything you'd recommend to a noob for their custom loop? Reason I ask is i'm about to build my 3rd PC, and it'll be my first custom loop as well. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
This is almost exactly my build, in the same case. This is a steal for this build, I know what it costs, and this thing can run almost all games i've thrown at it at 1440p at high/ultra settings. You won't be disappointed with this build!
Absolutely beautiful! I clicked through all 89 pictures, great job! Mine is built in the same case, but with some older parts. My goodness the case is beautiful!
I'll keep that in mind, thanks so much!
Bump to the top, this case is massive, and i'd rather not put it on fleabay and them take some of the money. Let's send it to a good home! :)
I like this concept, but i'm just being honest (maybe i'm too picky) but the lines on the paint job are not good. You need to get the masking tape from your local wal-mart that has clean lines, otherwise it'll look very choppy like yours does. Outside of that, the concept is cool. I'll be curious to see what it turns into.
GPU brace, haven't seen that before, but I like it -- Care to share where it's from? Also, i'm playing overwatch nonstop, what's your battletag and i'll add you? Awesome build!
This is almost exactly the same build as me, but mine has less ram. It seems to be awesome for me. What were your overclock settings if you don't mind me asking? did you do it with afterburner?
It seems to work just fine. It doesn't make any noise at all, and the PC hasn't skipped a beat, lights don't flicker, no issues that I can tell. I've overclocked the voltage just a tad on the GPU and it still doesn't have any issues. The calculator showed around 320 watts, so this should provide a good buffer to grow if it needs to.
anyone have a decent recommendation on wire combs?
I've always gone with this brand and they've been good to me!
I ran it through the top so there would be some slight tension on the GPU to keep it from sagging. i was already seeing some sag and that makes me nervous, ha! I thought about running it from the grommet below, but I wanted to be able to support it over time.
thank you very much, that helps out quite a bit! As for the fans - the case fans are plugged into the PWM fan controller hub via 3-pin fan headers. That pwm hub is plugged into the motherboard via an (i think) 4-pin plug. Should I somehow directly plug the case fans into the various "CHA_FAN" slots on the motherboard?
okay, i returned the corsair 600w PSU and purchased the EVGA 550 GS PSU, should everything be solid now? Any quality guides to first boot-up, you recommend watching? Thanks for all the help!
i can easily swap out the power supply. it's coming from amazon, while i'm still waiting for the other parts to get here on friday of this week. i can order the correct psu and it'll be here on friday with the other parts. what do you mean by Tier 3, just so i understand going forward in my next builds? thanks for the recommendation!
what do you mean it's bad? are you saying SSD for, say, just the OS, is not really worth it? I feel like the boot times are substantially faster? just curious so I understand, thanks for your input!
