Description

my first pc build for myself! FINALLY! I was so bored of upgradin' other's pc while at home I was playin on a intel hd 4000 so I started to look around to find some cash and here it is, not that special but I'm super confortable with it! Great everything, the mobo has some really nice cool features and their XFAST everything works (yes I was preatty unsure about it), my 4670k reaches an overclock of 4.4 easily (incredible for that hyper 212 evo) and the graphic card is a beast of a card (not overclocked yet). I obvoiusly use that ssd as my main drive and I'm really intered in buyin' another one to cache the hard drive. Only one thing scares me, I read about strange noises coming from some xfx 650w psu on the internet and initially I was not going to buy it, then looking at the price and thinking about the rma possibility I bought it... I tested it for days and sometimes it is a bit more noisy because of the fan spinning like a rocket but it's not that frustrating.. so I think that I was lucky with mine :D

Nice build! Is it just me, or is that GPU sagging a little bit..

 
 
RiftDM [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

yes it is but that directCU II cooler is very heavy... they placed the backplate behind the card but it's not that solid as I thought

I've heard of people using "ninja wire" or something to hold up their GPUs so they don't sag, I'm not sure exactly what it is or how it works. But you should look into it :)

gpus that sag just make me cry....

 
 
RiftDM [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

I still hope that the direct cu II cooler on it one day will transform into something lighter

 
 
TNTrocks123 [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

yeah especially the backplates maybe... the blackplates shouldn't be that thick

Just a suggestion put the hard drives in the top bays so then there is better airflow, or you could move the fan up one slot.

those photos are pretty old, in the meanwhile I worked a lot on the build, added an intake fan and also solved the saggin' problem of the 770, but thanks anyway ;) next mod is to cut a full windowed panel

I don't understand why you bought the psu after reading bad reviews about it. Other than that good build.

 
 
RiftDM [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

because not everyone was having problems, it was like the 50% of the buyers.. and I'm fortunately in the lucky 50%
