Description

Hi guys,

This is my first ever pc build. I was a mac user prior to this so building this was pretty significant to me. When I first started building I got a dead motherboard and had to RMA it and but now it works flawlessly. I use this machine for gaming, programming, and audio/video editing. Let me know what you think.

Thanks

Great build. I just hope you aren't another welfareprince troll guy again lol. I believed it to... Till guys on LinusTechTips got a hold of it and sniffed out the troll.

Really wow you are just a complete fake... though it was a good troll.

Private message welfareprince to Harleysmoke 3 minutes ago

LMFAO YES IT WAS (HIGH FIVE) though... The Scarlet Dragon was just a Cyberpower PC that I took apart and put back together.

Private message Harleysmoke to welfareprince 13 seconds ago

Lol nice. I believed you till the absolute genesis at LinusTechTips sniffed out the trollness http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/72091-is-it-just-me-or-does-this-guy-act-a-little-conceited/page-3?hl=cocky . Alot of the guys posting against the builds.

Starlana [2 Builds] 5 points 10 months ago

Here's a funny one I sent him after too:

Hey love, I was cleaning out my SPAM folder and I found some services that might be of particular interest to you.

Slut_Seeker - apparently you can "get laid free for a lifetime" (lulz)

Girl-Hunt - "Free Pass to Local Sluts"

SlutFinder - "Limited Time Free Access to Local Sluts" (better act quick on that one, limited time and all...)

Hottie Hunt - "find hot women ready to hook up in your town..."

Teehee. Sorry I just couldn't help myself. You totally sent that d*** sucking comment to the wrong gal this time...lulz

And PCPP just got PG13+

 
 
Starlana [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

LOL I'm totally waiting for the moderators to flag and remove it...

 
 
mattataki [1 Build] 2 points 10 months ago

Me too, I would like to check a pic again of the watercooling, it reminded me of something. Can you help me find him back?

 
 
Starlana [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

Help you find the welfareprince or whoever?

 
 
mattataki [1 Build] 2 points 10 months ago

Yes, well find his build pics. I googled and it sais the completed build was removed. Is it really removed?

 
 
Starlana [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

I think so, I don't see it under completed builds anymore...

 
 
mattataki [1 Build] 2 points 10 months ago

Alright oh well, it wasn't important then. Good thing, PCPP is 1 Troll build cleaner. Yep, I searched my history and it's removed for good.

 
 
Starlana [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

Go PCPP! Starlana <3 you!!

 
 
mattataki [1 Build] 2 points 10 months ago

:D Yay, I like to receive <3! It did my night, I'll sleep well now.

 
 
MahimulH 1 point 10 months ago

He brought the Haf X build again!

 
 
Starlana [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

To be honest, I didn't even report him. That kind of stuff happens often enough it's not even out-of-the-ordinary. First time I got a message like that on this site, however...

 
 
sqielyr 1 point 10 months ago

I actually asked him for advice -_-

 
 
Harleysmoke 1 point 10 months ago

Lol, so did I.

 
 
ImElkay [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

As did I

 
 
sqielyr 1 point 10 months ago

I'm so happy I'm not the only one.

 
 
Apach3 [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

looks like we all got tricked one way or another :P

 
 
Marcus_CA 1 point 10 months ago

Maybe I can help?

 
 
Marcus_CA 1 point 10 months ago

'His' 4k build: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1751610 , and Medusa from overclock.net ... if you've been around the computer modding world you remember these kind of builds.

 
 
ImElkay [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

Who would do that?

 
 
Marcus_CA 1 point 10 months ago

Some people need attention more than others I suppose.

 
 
jonech [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

what happen? all his greek series are gone

 
 
Harleysmoke 1 point 10 months ago

They were all not made by him. Took people 3 days to realized it was a troll. He LOLED it and deleted em all.

 
 
jonech [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

lol guess he has too much free time

 
 
noob_for_life 1 point 10 months ago

what seriously.... man i said he deserved an award but it was quite a believable troll

 
 
mattataki [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

OMG he was a troll? Wow, I don't know why, I had some doubts at first it was a legit post.

 
 
theonelonewolf [1 Build] 2 points 10 months ago

I like the colors (that can be seen). Do you feel that the case was worth the cost? How was working in it?

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

I do think that the case was worth the cost. It has so many great features that many other cases just don't have. I found working in it was pretty seamless. Although I did have to use some fan extensions for one or two of the fans, but that was about it.

 
 
theonelonewolf [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

Just watched the newegg video on the case. Very nice features indeed!

 
 
JoeyThePCNoob [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

Great build. Could you get some shots of the inside. +1

 
 
fasterblue [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

Really nice.

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

Thanks

 
 
DeathClap 1 point 10 months ago

I think this is a really nice build :), Looks great.

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

Thanks

 
 
ElloMello 1 point 10 months ago

Really great build, how good does that CPU perform?

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

Amazing, I haven't had any troubles with it. If you are looking for a great gaming/workstation cpu this one is great.

 
 
SirPrize [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

Great components. I just wish I could see more of the internals.

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

I will post some photos of the internal soon just haven't got around to it yet.

 
 
SrgtMacfly [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

for 600 dollars, you could have easely gotten a much better motherboard from EVGA or ASUS but good build!!! And are those logitech x530s?

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

Yeah those are x530s. Had them for years such great speakers. I went for Asrock because of the dual plx chips and the 24 phase power for the cpu.

 
 
Ggadget 1 point 10 months ago

Can I know which motherboard is better? Because I have a dream build list and I want it to be the best.

 
 
SrgtMacfly [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

the EVGA X79 DARK is one of the very best boards out there. Or asus rampage IV extreme/forumla

 
 
ESPM400 [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

Yet another 'Black beast...' Good build, uninspiring name...

 
 
ravagex 1 point 10 months ago

And another -1 for lack of proper pics

 
 
spencerharden 0 points 10 months ago

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

I set the color to green.

[comment deleted]
 
 
spencerharden 0 points 10 months ago

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

The case is black

 
 
spencerharden 1 point 10 months ago

and the light is green
