Description

I use my PC Mostly for Gaming and Video Editing :)

On BF4 I get 80FPS - 100FPS AVG. on Medium/High settings on a 64 man server. (GTX 770)

Benchmarked with Dirt 3, All settings on Ultra - 97 FPS AVG. Best After 20 runs (GTX 770)

Benchmarked with Tomb Raider, All settings on Ultra - 99.0 FPS AVG. Best After 20 Runs (GTX 770)

I do plan to upgrade to 2 GTX 970's By MSI in the Near Future, also Maybe a Newer Case since the Zalman Z11+ HF1 is not that good of a case IMO. might go with the NZXT H440.

Anyway this thing is a beast And I Have had No Major Issues since I built it

THANKS FOR LOOKING AT MY BUILD AND KEEP GAMING MY FRIENDS. :)

P.S. the 2nd and 3rd Photos is the Before and After photos for the Corsair H75 CPU Cooler I put in Later this year

Update 12/29/2014 - My WD Blue 1TB HDD has been nothing but a pain in my butt for the last month 1st 2 BSOD for no reason Whatsoever and then a total of 2 OS Boot Crashes, had to re-install Windows 7 twice on my rig but no big issue since I had everything backed up on a separate Drive, I tried to RAID 0 both of the HDD's but due to my ASUS ROG Motherboard not wanting to work with me I decided the next best thing to do was use both drives separately for data storage but that's alright with me haha, anyway my rig is almost to where I want it to be but for now it's all smooth sailing from here.

I have just the Z11 plus

PolishXlion 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

I have it too and I don't like t presonally. Not the bset soncstuction but the looks are amazing.

I have a love hate relationship. My friends and I always make fun of it because it looks like it has "birthing hips." It is also very high maintenance. It is difficult to dust and hard to carry due to its unique shape.

PolishXlion 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

I had no prolems while carrying it. I can crab it by the long front and under the back fan or I can grab it from the bttom. Ofcourse there are better cases like the C70 for carrying with it's little handles. I like the way you describe it :P

TheBattlefieldBroski submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

I can carry it with the front lip at the top and the Rail on the back my PSU but it's like 35 pounds of straight Beast of a PC lol

TheBattlefieldBroski submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

I like the case but for a big build like mine I should of gone with the the Corsair Graphite 760T In a Red finish instead but hey I got what I could afford at the time

PolishXlion 1 Build 2 points 12 months ago

Also you should be able to run BF4 on Ultra without a problem.

TheBattlefieldBroski submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

I do run BF4 on ultra for now and I get good Graphic Quality with the 770 GTX also thanks for looking at my Build. :D

PolishXlion 1 Build 2 points 12 months ago

I just saw that you run it at medium-high settings and was a bit confused. Have fun with the PC!

Hellvaguy 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

Very nice looking high end build you created.

TheBattlefieldBroski submitter 1 Build 2 points 12 months ago

TheBattlefieldBroski submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

Thanks haha

Nice build man! How did you get your idle down to 12c at 4.3? I have the 6350 at 4.2 and it idle's at 28c.

TheBattlefieldBroski submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

I used a Program called Speedfan and Clocked the CPU Cooler fans all the way up to 50% when Idle so it stays cool all the time when under full load I use the fans at 80% so I don't push them too hard

Nice build, I would of gone with an Intel processor though.

TheBattlefieldBroski submitter 1 Build 2 points 12 months ago

I Prefer AMD over intel but To each his own I guess Also thanks for taking the time to look at my build :D
