Description

The video card seen in the rig shot is my old 550 Ti, which evidently isn't a part of the final product!

Didn't get a final shot of the rig as I was too tired, but figure ;)

The last picture is that of my home entertainment core!

Extremely satisfied with all parts. Working together like a charm!

Nice build. I LOVE what you did with those SATA cables! :O

I have one question though, why Windows 7 Pro if you aren't using more than 16GB of RAM? Since you got 2x4GB on a 4-DIMM board.

 
 
interception_ [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 15 months ago

I do understand why you would ask that, however it was given to me as a free download from my university (back then!)

 
 
LeMonarque [3 Builds] 1 point 15 months ago

Can't beat free! Sweet deal.

I was quite overwhelmed myself when they gave us access to Dreamspark or MSDN Academic Alliance, as it was formerly known as.

Very nice +1

Nice cable management, especially the pretty weave of SATA cables!

 
 
Rayyo 1 point 15 months ago

How many holes are there on this mobo and how many standoffs did you actually use?

 
 
interception_ [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 15 months ago

There are 9 holes for standoffs and I used them all. How so?

Edit: spelling.

Lol a razer DeathAdder mouse hugh? i got that same mouse at goodwill for 3$ it works great

 
 
interception_ [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 15 months ago

It's a great mouse, aint it? ;)

 
 
swagnuggets123 1 point 15 months ago

Yep!

Did you placed a custo cooler on that GPU ? It looks like you took the stock cooling off of it.

 
 
interception_ [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 15 months ago

This is how it looks out of the box when you purchase the SuperClocked version from EVGA!

 
 
Enlyten [1 Build] 1 point 15 months ago

It's a 770 with the new EVGA ACX Cooler. They have the new cooler on a lot of their cards now.

 
 
Rayyo 1 point 15 months ago

how are the case fans connected?

Nevermind I found out that they are connected to the molex connectors on the psu

 
 
interception_ [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 15 months ago

Indeed they are. I like the case fan controller (allowing 3 fans total) at the front as a feat.!

 
 
sketch24 [6 Builds] 1 point 15 months ago

Premium build.

 
 
blaziecat1103 1 point 15 months ago

Why no window? :( Otherwise, great!

 
 
interception_ [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 14 months ago

I figured as the computer would be standing on the floor window against the wall there's nothing to show off really ;)

 
 
blaziecat1103 1 point 14 months ago

aha

 
 
Gooberdad [2 Builds] 1 point 15 months ago

pretty build very clean.

 
 
sail218 [1 Build] 1 point 14 months ago

Great build - I'm looking to build something extremely similar. How are your fans set up in terms of intake/exhaust? I'm assuming front two intake and the rear venting? Or vice/versa?

Looks great!

 
 
interception_ [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 14 months ago

Hey, and thanks! As you suspected I took the two fans that came with the case and put them both in the front to act as intake.

The rear exhaust is handled by the two water cooling fans and... well the video card doing is some small work there too (amazingly quiet fans, I tell you that).

I left all other optional intakes/exhausts shut as they were.

Can you post more pics of the inside, especially with the new video card installed?

 
 
Relapseespaler 1 point 13 months ago

I was thinking of purchasing a gtx 770, however I might as well wait until the 800 series is released next year. Heard they will be using 20nm instead of 22nm and huge gains on everything. Although at 334.00 the 770 is pretty tempting with Nvida's free 3 game bundle.

Not sure why you have the i7 though unless you edit videos/audio or something akin to that. The i5 is pretty much the best you need for gaming.

 
 
interception_ [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

It's a really nice card and it runs Battlefield 4 on Ultra really well (Edit: at 1080p that is).

As for the CPU I wanted the i7 because of eventual video and graphics rendering.

 
 
taormina 1 point 10 months ago

Thermal paste and case fans?

 
 
interception_ [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

I didn't switch anything out (= I'm using the R4's included fans and the H80i's original paste and fans.)

 
 
YourLocalPCNoob [1 Build] -2 points 15 months ago

why not h100i?

 
 
interception_ [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 15 months ago

Mixed reasoning of the airflow I wanted, that I don't really need it for my purposes with this rig and also the fact that I thought it to be quite bulky (obviously can't speak for this last one since it's only my theory).
