Description

Built this for gaming and school, but mostly gaming. It runs everything I wish, at maximum settings. I threw in a NZXT HUE RGB Led Controller for cosmetics, I bought the keyboard and mouse for cosmetics as well, but turns out they are also really nice. The headphones were bought later, People apparently don't like to hear my gaming. Overall, im very happy with all of the products that went into this machine. I had no snags putting it together, and It has been running nicely ever since.

Your fans in the top, rear, and on the CPU are strange. To be safe make sure that the CPU fan is pulling air through the heatsink and maybe you should move that top fan to the top mount closer to the front of the case so it doesn't just exhaust air that is already going to exhaust out of the rear. Either way, that top fan is either going to steal air or just do unnecessary work.

+1 Anyways, this build is really nice! Fantastic colors, and clean work.

Thanks!

The fan on the CPU is aimed to pull air through the heat-sink, while the one in the rear vents it. Thanks for bring my attention to the top fan though, That will have to be moved, or removed.

I love the case and the keyboard for sure... nice choice with the 4gb 770 too

The 770 4gb's memory bandwidth cannot utilize 4gb unless there are multiple monitors or very high resolution monitors

Still helps in games where you mod, like skyrim, fall-out and gta iv.

It does! and I do!

I also plan on adding another monitor or two, once the funds become available.

This is a really nice build. I like it. I just have a few questions.

  • Why did you get a 4gb 770 instead of a 2gb 770 (Just curious).
  • are you going to get an SSD in the near future/
Moonshadow360 submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

I got the 4gb 770 because I have heard good things about the EVGA Classified edition. Also, friend has one just like it, and highly recommended it.

SSD is in the near future, just had to cut back for the current budget, but one is on the way.

Great build with nice colors and a clean look. Only suggestion would be to invest in a SSD. Good Job!
