I have a Lian-Li PC-08. Anyway, I spent 2 hours this morning trying to make it clean in the back. I unplugged all my cables and zip tied, twist tied, and used sticky cable clips so it looks a lot better in the back now, and I'm happy now.

Yeah I could honestly use some tips on cable management from you. I mean, it all looks nice in the front of my case, but once you get to the back it is a mess. Do you have any tips for me? I find that it's hard to get around stuff when I have all these cables in the way. Would you recommend I order custom-length cables for my PSU?

Anyway very nice build you got there!

There is so much more to CPUs than frequency and core counts emreburgu1. The I5-6600K whoops any AMD CPU.

In general cases are chosen based on aesthetic purposes and personal preference. Notice I did not point out the case you chose, because a case is all for aesthetics. In my original post to you, I said "there must be a reason for your choices" or something like that. If you did watercooling for aesthetics, I totally understand that, but that's not what you told me. Anyway, you are clearly angry at me and are keeping pushing. I only recommend that next time you build, you take everything that is not for looks and do more extensive research on how to get better bang for the buck.

Some top fans should cool down the GPU better, I have a 390 and an H440 and know what you mean with the GPU getting hot.

My criticisms of your build are much different than yours of mine. For your build I am speaking strictly from a performance aspect, dropping the watercooler and getting a better CPU instead would have been a much better investment. CPUs should last 15+ years whether they are hot or cold, so that is negligible. Another thing I pointed out was the power supply, as professional reviews show it not to be up-to-par with other units of the same price, primarily due to the capacitor choices. That all and the unnecessary Z97 for a CPU that can't overclock.

On the other hand, your criticisms of my (old) build are cable management and the case. A case is a very personal preference, it doesn't have anything to do with performance but aesthetics. Same with the cable management. But with your rig I was pointing out ways you particularly could have gotten higher quality and better performing parts for a lower price. But with your criticisms, I feel you're just stating random stuff out of anger at me for giving you some advise.

This rig has been updated much since, these are old images. If you're not willing to take in any constructive criticism on your rig, I suggest you don't even bother posting it online. I did not mean anything in a rude manner.

I hope you don't mind some constructive criticism, but I have to disagree a lot with some of your choices. Watercooling an I5-4430... why? CS550M for $76 seems like a lot to me, the Seasonic G Series 550 sits at the same price. Why a Z97 board with a non-K CPU? Any need for all the storage?

Anyway, there may be a reasoning behind some of it, but nice build anyway! :)

They are going to be poor quality. N1 for sure is going to be supposedly their most budget units, probably very poor. Same with BQ. And W1, of course.

I wouldn't say they control the market.

The N1 is going to suck, I guarantee it. EVGA is going to use their name to try to sell these things dirt cheap, and it'll work.

I must have confused it with the I7-4790 and 4790K which have different stock clocks. My bad.

But the Hydro G series can argue against that. It has tight ripple control. And Seasonic makes the GS, FSP makes the GQ.

It's about equivalent to GS in performance. GS overall is overrated IMO. The voltage regulation and ripple could be improved, as they are meh.

What about it? You do realize that is decent ripple, right? Jonnyguru zooms in on his graphs.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Best PSU"

The 850W is significantly better, but even if two units are the same platform doesn't mean they are exactly the same. Jonnyguru reviewed the 650W unit, Tomshardware the 750W. The 650W unit was decent, the 750W had some poor ripple.

You don't know what you're talking about. X99 is fantastic, all these people are flooding the forums with these false "X99 sucks because reasons". X99 I7 CPUs are far better than the I7-6700K, the most overrated, biased CPU on the face of the earth.

And you clearly don't realize $20 Windows copies are scams.

What do you think is so wrong with it? Aside from some problems with transient response on the 3.3V rail and low voltage on the 5V rail, it doesn't seem like such a problematic unit as the 650W one is.

GQ 750W has poor ripple on the minor rails. I think the FSP Hydro G 650W would have been the smartest option.

The XFX XT does not use all Japanese capacitors. Most of them are by a brand called CS, which has a bad reputation. It look slike it'll be really poor quality, and I think the CX is a better option.

No you do not want to buy that, it is junk. Buy a quality unit, like the XFX Pro 550 Core Edition. Nobody should be running a high-end graphics card on a junk PSU. That PSU is most likely actually a 350W unit.

You're confusing the 750W with the 650W. The 750W has poor 3.3V and 5V ripple. The 650W and 850W were fine.

But overclocked, it can reach pretty high frequencies, and people OC a lot.

At the price of that Silverstone 300W ($50) you might as well get the Seasonic-made XFX Pro 550W for $55.

What is the price difference between those two?
