5 Ghz, nice.

Why are peeps downvoting this? I think it looks fantastic..

TorguL [1 Build] 4 points 20 months ago

Hey. I'm thinking about getting the same EVGA PSU for my build. How is the PSU working out for you so far? Many thanks.

DiscGolfer947 2 points 23 months ago

why the dual 660 tis? why not a single 680? Other than that it looks like a nice build.

User4154 10 points 21 months ago

a single 680 performs worse than dual 660s. not even 660 tis.

riley1382 [Submitter] [1 Build] 8 points 23 months ago

I already had one from my last build sooo..

DiscGolfer947 2 points 23 months ago

that makes sense then

I dont play bf3 but borderlands 2 and crysis 3 are amazing. It doesnt help the gameplay it just looks nice..

vadimak17 [3 Builds] 2 points 23 months ago

How is that keyboard? It looks amazing!

Jimmy 2 points 19 months ago

This may sound a bit late, but what is your ambient temp? Because those temps seem really cold for a single 140mm radiator. I'm looking for a good all in one cooler for the 8350 until I can get a full custom loop set up, and if the Kraken X60 (the dual 140mm) can cool the 8350 at 5 Ghz with an ambient temp of about 72-75F then I won't even set up a custom loop.

Nice build :D

FrankV01 [1 Build] 1 point 22 months ago

Trying to understanding overclocking my FX-8350; when you overclocked yours did you only increase the multiplier or did you also increase the voltage?

Also, is it normal to have system instability during the process of over-clocking? Like an occasional fail to boot (where it boot cycles)?

Any info you could provide on your overclocking experience would be great! Thanks.

superchump [1 Build] -1 points 21 months ago

Do not touch the voltage if you don't know what you're doing. You could rip a hole in the Space-Time continuum... or just fry your CPU.

FrankV01 [1 Build] 2 points 21 months ago

Everyone who has ever tweaked voltage starts out having never done it. I understand the risk and I understand to tweak slowly. I appreciate your advice (and humor) but I'm trying to understand the association of system instability, overclocking and voltage tweaking.

For example, I've read several times that sometimes when a overclocked CPU is not stable, simply increasing the voltage by .005 of a volt can solve the problem.

ouv 1 point 21 months ago

Awesome build, going to be using the CPU, and liquid cooling and overclocking it to 5.0 as well.

JsoN7 1 point 21 months ago

Okay, I'm planning the same build you are, in terms of CPU, Motherboard, 660 Ti SLI and Triple monitor setup, all I want to know is what is the performance like? I'll be playing Crysis 3 and Borderlands 2 as well, among other games, but this should give me a baseline to work with and what to expect. Thanks

User4154 1 point 21 months ago

I think you should've gotten the acer h226 hql bid. Thin bezel(great for triple monitor setup), IPS screen, 5 ms response time, for about $10 less each(not a lot, but I've seen it go as much as $30 less for each at times because of rebates). Other than that, damn.

where did you buy that kraken x40

DragonForge 1 point 5 months ago

I personally would've bought 1 screen, and a Intel i7 Extreme or something. Personal preference though.

Bseagull -1 points 23 months ago

Surprised nobody has asked this yet... Why the sideways motherboard?

riley1382 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 23 months ago

its how the case is silverstone raven 3 the io panel in on the top.
