Description

This is my first ever build. Built it mostly for gaming and some editing and Photoshop work. Wanted to build something that I wouldn't need to upgrade for a while and still max out all games.

This being my first time building a PC any Ideas for improvement is welcome I didn't really have a budget for it just wanted to build something that I wouldn't need to upgrade for a while

...Update.... spent some time overclocking the 680 and came out with some good benchmarks. Seems pretty stable too.

Do you work for Corsair?

edman545 10 Builds 4 points 29 months ago

Corsair makes cases too.

ehill submitter 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

lol, no but I read lots of good reviews on the fans. Kinda worried about all the bad feedback of the h100, haven't had any of the issues with the 100i

Sweet build! How are the quiet edition fans on the H100i?

ehill submitter 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

It does run a bit warmer than the stock fans, but it has stayed under 70C at 4.5ghz even after 1-2 hrs of 100% use.

hollatyourboy 1 point 29 months ago

Thanks. Are they noticeably quieter then the stock fans?

ehill submitter 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

yes very

hollatyourboy 1 point 29 months ago

Thanks

Do you utilize the 3D vision? And if so how is it? Was thinking of getting that monitor and a 680 4GB

infidusandrew 2 Builds 1 point 29 months ago

Definitely will last you a long time. Does it get loud with all those fans in there?

ehill submitter 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

No i am really happy with the quiet edition fans they are almost silent. I can actually hear the mech hdd over them somtimes.

infidusandrew 2 Builds 1 point 29 months ago

That's great. Great cable management also. I had that case for a while so I know how much work it takes to make it look neat.

bgiunt4 1 point 29 months ago

VERY nice build. Cable management is awesome too.

ehill submitter 1 Build 2 points 29 months ago

Thanks I probably spent more time on routing cables than actually building the rest of it.

bgiunt4 3 points 29 months ago

time well spent

RapidVodka 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

Nice Build man! I have a quick question I'm thinking about getting the H100i water cooling system and putting some aftermarket fans like you did on it, im wondering where did you plug them in for power?

ehill submitter 1 Build 2 points 29 months ago

They go right into the pump/heatsink with a adapter that comes with the H100i so you can control them with the software for it

TheHiguty 1 point 29 months ago

Great build, top notch cable management.

One question though, what's that little PCI card beneath the 680? I'm guessing it's a wireless card?

ehill submitter 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

Its a old LAN card a friend gave me, I was having issue with uploads timing out and it would only happen on this pc. I threw it in to see if it would fix it and it did. Not sure what's up the motherboard adapter, haven't messed with it since.

caneco87 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

sounds like a driver problem. did you update the chipset and lan drivers??

ehill submitter 1 Build 2 points 29 months ago

yes, Just went back yesterday to look for new drivers and still same issue. Not worrying about it right now though don't really need that pci slot.

evanweiss 1 point 29 months ago

very nice build!

Depending on when you build this I went with the GTX 770 because it's just as good but has faster GDDR5 Memory Speed unless when you build this the GTX 680 was the best thing on the market

Why do you have a 160$ optical drive
