Sick machine, runs all games i have tested on full or nearly full with a good framerate. still to do some upgrades like more ram, SSD new PCU and a H80.
I KNOW!! BAD CABLE MANAGEMENT!!!
I feel like you would've been better off getting an i5-3470 with a 7950.
Im doing multicore/Thread rendering so the i7 was what i wanted. i have had good some friends who have a 7850 and they loved it so i just went for one of them. once i have done all the upgrades i really want i may concider a GPU upgrade but it wont be any time soon.
The 7850 should be capable in the majority of games at 1080p. Especially since you got the 2 Gb model.
great build you got there!
how are you liking the case? i'm planning on getting one myself.
i really like it. the extruding back panel is really good for cable management as well as the rubber grommets. the handle is great if you are doing upgrade every once and a while and im never afraid its going to break because its really solid but comfortable to hold. Highly recommended.
duly noted, since i'm likely to carry my PC around a lot for LAN stuff.
Nice build!! Although I wouldn't put a h80 in your build because you won't be able to over clock.
Thanks :) cant overclock my CPU anyway
No, he's saying that you can't overclock your Cpu. The H80 is designed for people who are going to overclock. If you're not going to overclock, there's no advantage to buying the H80
i see, what CPU cooler would you put in to get better temp than i have already?
I'm saying that the temps you have already are fine. If you're not going to overclock (which you're not), then you don't need an aftermarket cooler
Smily, you're right. He doesn't need any better temps than he has.
Completely off topic, but there is a cool single slot 7850 which I think would be really cool to own! http://bit.ly/My8RnB
i agree. i would be kinda afraid about temperatures though
Yea thats the only thing that would keep me from buying it
Yeah, but I personally think the big two or three slot coolers look and perform better.
i agree unless your doing 3way sli/crossfire and need the space for airflow
Is that Rainlendar/Rainmeter I see? ( °D°)/ I recognize that clock.
no idea haha
its just a HUD-Time gadget :)
Micro ATX? I would have gone ATX.
Future expansion... more RAM slots... CrossFire support... just why wouldn't you?
the MB i have is crossfire compatible, has 2 additional unpopulated ram slots so i didn't see the need to go ATX. Please tell me if im wrong.
No you're correct, I'm just blind and didn't see the second PCI. xD
haha algood, i picked it specifically for that.
Any shots of the inside?
OK. one of inside uploaded :)
Looks clean for what you're working with . . . good job! Upvote :)
Thanks man :)
TEACH ME HOW TO DO WHAT YOU DID WITH YOUR DESKTOP, PLEASE :D Its amazingly gorgeous!
Thank you so much :)
Delete all shortcuts>Right click bottom bar and select Autohide>download Objectdock and put all necessary programs on it (also Autohide)>
Get a nice wallpaper and your done :)
Very nice build, but one question... why the 3770 and not the 3770k? I mean its a couple of bucks more but I defiantly would have saved an extra
$25-$35 just to get the unlocked multiplier.
But he got a locked motherboard.
Thanks BigBaws, Is it a locked motherboard? didnt really cheak. anyway i think overclocking CPUs is slighty over rated. more heat for very little performance gain. i think the 3770 has a better core frequency then the 3770k anyway so in my mind i save money plus i have never used more than 70% and when i was using 70% i was rendering 1080p 60Fps footage of Planetside2 so i think thats good enough for me.
H77 motherboards cannot overclock CPUs.
Definatly overlooked that when reviewing your build. Sorry, my mistake. Once again. Its a very nice build.
Great build mate, was thinking to go with the Scout 2. More pics please from the front and side (with the blings on if possible)
