Gamecube Feat. Allspark

Permalink:   (66 comments)
Description

I finally built a PC, thanks to my friends. One of them got me into the pc's, and another sold me his 2 week old parts. They called my CPU cooler the Allspark, so that's where the name came from. I got MOBO, CPU, and GPU for half off. I also found this HDD somewhere In my house. I loved this case when i first saw it, but it needed dust filters so i bought some for the top and the PSU. Overall I'm happy with this build, I can play BF4 and Ultra and a constant 60fps. I still plan to get a SSD, and another HDD for storage. I might get another 760 to sli, but maybe when I buy a game that i can't max. Need a fan controller, and LED fans to make it look more pretty and stuff. Oh and the LED's are blue, not purple.

Fun build, no major problems. The only thing i didn't like was the PSU cable, and the CPU cable, they look horrible. I don't have the best pc compared to my friends such as GalliumBeryllium, but I was on the lowest budget and I'm really satisfied with what I was able to get with my budget. A few more paychecks and it'll be pretty.

Update- Got MOAR Leds.
Update- Moved CPU Fan Update- Sleeves.

A description, good part choices and fit for purpose. Things like this are becoming far too rare.

I cant believe you got the GPU and the CPU so cheap, your so lucky

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

My friend hooked it up

 
 
YourLocalPCNoob [1 Build] 3 points 6 months ago

Makes me wanna switch my H212 Evo for that Shadow rock. Where are they sold?

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

I got mines off of NCIX for 50 after tax and shipping. Right now they should be 50 before tax and shipping. I was going to get the Evo at first, then I saw this and wanted it so bad, and it was on sale lol. It was the first thing I bought too.

 
 
elvenson [1 Build] 3 points 6 months ago

That case! Love it.

Only concern I'd have is that the fan is blocked by the gpu... Can you relocate the gpu down to another slot without losing your x16 pci capabilities on that board? Or fit the fan on the top side to vent out that way, or to the left to gain the advantage of the case exhaust fan?

I want that case... lol

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Lost a few degrees switching it over the ram, but I might try moving it to the top as pull, but as of right now, It's running really good even though it looks like the gpu is blocking the fan.

 
 
elvenson [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

Not just that, but as your gpu heats up under heavy use, it will suck all that heat through the cpu cooler

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Hm yea, I'll probably switch it to the top tonightt

 
 
basedgodunicorns [1 Build] 3 points 6 months ago

That air cooler is so intimidating and it the brushed aluminum look is so classy +1

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

Love this cooler

 
 
ib10xs4u2 3 points 6 months ago

You scored big time. Plus, your pictures show off a really beautiful build. I love the blue theme.

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

Thank you! Blue is the way to go!

 
 
crimsondragon 3 points 6 months ago

SpicyPickle [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

Very nice build, good choices in parts and I love the blue theme. +1

 
 
actechy [6 Builds] 2 points 6 months ago

Awesome, the parts are excellent...especially the Air540/BeQuiet cooler, perfect choice together. +1 all day

Not to mention at a really really good price.

smittypantz@hotmail.com [10 Builds] 2 points 6 months ago

be quiet! Looks great! I was wondering if your ram kept you from installing the fan differently?

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

I just found out that I can move my fan over the ram, It'll just sit a little higher, but when i tried it, my temps went up a degree or two. So i kept it like this.

 
 
smittypantz@hotmail.com [10 Builds] 1 point 6 months ago

Well played!

 
 
Every1LoveEvery1 [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

Any reason for position of the CPU fan ?

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

It wouldn't fit due to my ram, and I think it works out because of the position of the heat pipes.

 
 
Kiburi [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

Looks like a nice build! +1

 
 
EcoMCG [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

The build makes the fluid inside of me jump. Beautiful Build, makes me want to do a blue build now... +1

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

Blues my favorite color haha. Too bad you cant really see how the blue really looks like.

 
 
rumz 2 points 6 months ago

Very smooth build! Love how clean it is. +1 for aesthetics. (Love the color, cooler and case together, very nice.)

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Thanks!!!!!!

 
 
aludka 2 points 6 months ago

+1 just for another build with a Be Quiet cooler. Love mine so much I actually took out a custom loop to put it back in.

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

It looks so nice! Hahha

 
 
ShootingPlenty 2 points 6 months ago

dromni 2 points 6 months ago

You got the GPU for $150!!?? If only I was this lucky... Guess I'll just stick with my Acer laptop and go cry in a corner ;_;

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Yea, lol I was like that for a long time :(.

 
 
dromni 1 point 6 months ago

Glad you got outta it man... Guess I ain't gonna be able to build myself a pc until college it seems :/

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Buy one part at a time!

 
 
dromni 1 point 6 months ago

Nah, if I start buying parts now they'd be all outdated by the time I gather enough of them :/ counts money in piggy bank

 
 
Caleb10E [5 Builds] 2 points 6 months ago

QuickFire TK represent! Love the build, and I don't know how you got the CPU, motherboard and video card half-off but you scored big-time. Enjoy!

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

My friend wanted to upgrade, so he sold them to me. Lol

 
 
javierlrod 2 points 6 months ago

Looks great,what brand are the new leds?

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Silverstone, the wires were a bit short, so I solder on longer wires.

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

I'll post pics right now

 
 
AddictedBuilder [1 Build] 2 points 4 months ago

I am in awe at how nice that cooler looks :) nice job

 
 
nathanbaker22 2 points 4 months ago

What lights are those? I don't see them listed and I love the color. Not super bright and over done.

 
 
Stanbery [1 Build] 2 points 4 months ago

I normally don't care for the look of air coolers, but I do love the simplistic look of the Shadow Rock. +1

 
 
tmcclelland455 1 point 6 months ago

Damn, that be quiet! CPU cooler is MASSIVE (to me it looks like it, anyway).

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

It is, but IMO it looks so cool, and more cooling

 
 
killregister 1 point 6 months ago

OMG +1 just for pure beautifulness pics

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Thank you!!!!!

 
 
dvs98 [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Looks great

 
 
Elshelfo 1 point 6 months ago

I have been looking into headsets recently, what is your opinion of the G430?

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

It's a decent headset, the dongle is pretty cheapish, the sound is nice. Not as nice as other headsets, like the Steel Series. Honestly you can't beat it for $40. But I'm not sure if its still on sale.
I think the only difference between the g430s, and the g230's is the usb dongle.
I would check out the Steel Series Sibera as well.

Love your wallpaper

 
 
Moon_Rock 1 point 6 months ago

what side fan does it use? And does it come with extra fan mounts for another fan?

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Side Fan?

 
 
Moon_Rock 1 point 6 months ago

size* for the cooler fan

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

120mm, and it doesnt come with an extra mount. Looks like you can make one though

 
 
Moon_Rock 1 point 6 months ago

k, thanks for the help

 
 
Carlos.sulos3 [1 Build] 1 point 5 months ago

I just finished my build when I first started looking at builds I saw yours and knew I had to have that cooler :) your setup with the air looks better tho.... Still need to put a couple more things on mine (led fans and sleeved cables) but hopefully it'll look as nice as yours

 
 
kingspiral 1 point 3 months ago

Is this board actually black or is it some scummy brown colour that a lot of manufacturers use?

 
 
Bokehjeremy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

It is Black!

 
 
LemingSweaty 1 point 1 month ago
