Description

After about a year and a half picking parts, planning and adjusting my price point, I built a computer. Still waiting to finish cable fitting/sleeving, and a custom loop to be completed. Using it for gaming, photoshop, 3d modelling and folding.

Every part went in with minimal issues.

Bought all tower components from Newegg. Between combo deals, promo codes and great customer care, I was able to save about $300 on the cost of this build and received everything in great condition and in a timely manner.

Had to replace my aging Logitech peripherals due to heavy use for the last couple years I've had them. Used to have a G700 and G19, but replaced them with a new G700s and a Ducky Shine3 with cherry brown switches. I've always loved the feel of these mice since my old MX Revolution. Bought the monitors along with a dual mount, sound system and my desk from amazon.

Transplanting my old 3570k into my new SFF build for 24/7 folding. Installing a new 3770k into this machine to increase performance in SolidWorks, Photoshop and F@H.

Feel free to post any comments you have, positive or negative.

P.S. Sorry about the cellphone pics. The led strip made them all grainy and ugly and I don't have a better cam to fix it at the moment. lol.

that bitfenix recon...would you recommend it?

it's got pretty good power output for handling multiple fans per branch and the touch controls are highly responsive.the only thing I don't like about it is that you have to be looking at it straight on to read it, but the fact you can read and control it through the internet makes up for that. pretty good imo.

Thanks for the info man

I have a build im doing soon and the case alone comes with 5 fans with an option to put 6-7 and everywhere i looked for a controller people were complaining left and right in the reviews

JayKthnx [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 15 months ago

I'll have to look around. I've had it for years and don't recall where I got it.

Why Windows 7 Ultimate for $300?

 
 
JayKthnx [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 15 months ago

that was an automatic price pcpartpicker applied to it. I didn't pay for it since I had a copy already available to me.

Much brighter LED strip is the Bitfenix Connects, a tiny 30cm strip lit up my entire case and bleed light through foam/ mesh/ components to light up a room. One of them would be good enough for your case, two if you want to do it over-kill and really show off those parts.

Thanks for the info, though I'm pretty happy with the lighting I have now. The reason its so dim is because I've dialed down the brightness to achieve better diffusion and avoid those pinpoints of light you see from so many other led strips. Also, the strip cycles through the led's fading them in and out on a lengthy loop making it seem almost random. Best part is they're rgb led's I can reprogram any time I'd like.

How do you like those monitors? I'm debating whether to get that exact monitor or a 1440p IPS monitor.

 
 
JayKthnx [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 15 months ago

love them. on their own they have a very nice contrast ratio and accurate colors. if you feel like going through the steps to enable the lightboost mod, it's one of the best looking monitors I have ever seen.
