Description

Explanation of some of the hardware choices.

Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Why this CPU and not the i7- 4770k? Well i have a i7-4770k but this i5 overclocked a TON better then the i7. Some reason the i7 runs at like 48c right out of the box.. im going to delid it and add some good thermal paste..... so I got EXTREMELY lucky on my i5 :0 But i will say for video editing the hyper-threading on the i7 would be better .

G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-2400- Before you start trolling about the 16GB of ram , The reason behind this is because i have had this ram for over a year now and it was free!! you can never go wrong with too much ram.

X2 Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" SSD- Why do i have Two SSDs? Well that because there in RAID 0 configuration of course. Better performance. Faster read and write times!

Dell S2440L 24.0" Why this Screen? well it was free... cant go wrong with that!

NZXT HUE RBG Controller. Why did i get this? Well because i like to daydream all the time and its nice to have pretty colors flashing in front of me.

What is this computer used for? Photo/Video Editing and Moderate gaming. Moderate OCing, Bench-marking All around balanced PC that doesn't hurt the wallet too bad.

*EDIT " Need to think of a good name to call this thing" Please give me some ideas !

Thanks for looking!

Moderate OCing o__o

Austn 1 Build 17 points 25 months ago

How about, "The Lucky Haswell"?

BeardCreep 11 points 25 months ago

This so much. 5 ghz. Not even fair.

Guingix 5 points 25 months ago

Holy mother of processors?! 5 ghz tell me about it. How did it reach like that with a decent temp o.O

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 4 points 25 months ago

Like 1 out of 1000s will be extremely good. I also have air conditioning in the room freezing. Lol

Guingix 1 point 25 months ago

Damn. I thought you delid (spelling i forgot) your cpu.i want to overclock like that. Only 8350 reach 5 ghz with moderate oc though i wished i would get one like that :(

MrMOABy 1 Build 1 point 23 months ago

I can't even get 4.6 out of my 8350 :(

gward01 4 points 25 months ago

Very nice! i also like your other builds keep up the good work!

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

thanks ! appreciate it

DontUSASme 2 points 25 months ago

You are so lucky. I envy this. Good build.

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

Thx! I have the lights on plus.. reminds me of a fish tank. Ha. Next build might have to be a fish tank mineral oil build.

DontUSASme 2 points 25 months ago

I mean seriously, 5GHz? Does it run hot at all?

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 4 points 25 months ago

When you make the LEDs blue it runs about 30 degrees cooler! Im not jokein :)

DontUSASme 3 points 25 months ago

Brb, throwing every light in my house into my case. Haha - you won the lottery man. That's a great chip.

PickItApart 2 points 25 months ago

Great build. Love free stuff too. But you might want to change the monitor for improved performance and awesomeness.

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

Yea the screen was free. I do also have a 23 inch ACER touchscreen also!

PickItApart 1 point 25 months ago

gotcha. You're getting lots of comments cuz it's a pretty bad *** build!

Enlyten 1 Build 2 points 25 months ago

No way this isn't a cherry-picked CPU.

/sarcasm (Don't get mad at me)

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 4 points 25 months ago

lol i actually got this CPU the day it was released. :)

Enlyten 1 Build 2 points 25 months ago

NICE. :D

Smily 2 points 25 months ago

What voltage?

Byebye 2 points 25 months ago

Can you post what settings you used to achieve this overclock? That is crazy!

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

Sure my cpuz val is in the pictures. :)

Byebye 2 points 25 months ago

thanks.. I see it.. That's a low temp for such a high Vcore. Guess you won the silicon lottery.

Javanode 1 Build 2 points 25 months ago

Nice build man! But I always wonder what benefits you get with 5ghz speed in everyday computing?

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

Thanks! I dont run 5 GHz on a daily basis. I run 4.2GHz daily :) I want to keep my CPU longer then a year lol

JPKaizer 1 Build 2 points 25 months ago

I'm really digging the NZXT Hue!

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

thanks! Best part of the whole system :)

JPKaizer 1 Build 2 points 25 months ago

Yeapp plus its only like $20!

Gooberdad 3 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Wow I'm really surprised you got that Haswell 4670k to run stable at 5.0 and only get 78 at max load. Did you run a good test with Prime95( like an hour or more)? I had trouble with my daughter's 4770k at just 4.5, so I set hers lower and reapplied thermal paste. I wouldn't try to set that chip off hers anywhere near that. I'm afraid it would burn out her components. Good job.

Gooberdad 3 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

"Dooh!" Just read the comments. Running yours at 4.2. gotcha.

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

It's really the luck of the draw on your chip. Thankfully I'm fortunate enough to pick though my CPUS lol. :)

Gooberdad 3 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Awesome. I have a regular"Not gonna go up without a fight" 4770k :{

Gabbe99n 2 points 17 months ago

Maybe a little late but for the name: i5.0Ghz

DjArtifact 1 point 25 months ago

Does the CPU pass 20 runs of Intel Burn Test on maximum? If it doesn't I would worry about crashes in games and editing.

asus420 1 point 25 months ago

so wait if i put 2 ssds in my pc i will have speed like u? and where did u find that background? i want it

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

That all depends on your specs on your SSDs. You will need to set it up in your BIOS to RAID 0. What drives do you have? there are lots of videos online that will tell you all about them and the specs of all the diff drives. I would explain it on here but that's allot of typing and it would be just easier for you to look on line. :)

Did you custom make the side window or is that something that came with the case/did you order this separately?

I've got the Fractal R4 and I like the side window but I would LOVE to have a side window like this...

a good name for the build... The Dreamer :) (since you like to daydream^)

xBlood_Monkey 10 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

What side window??

RyneSmith 7 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

Okay the whole see through panel, is it custom made or is there a place I can order a full side panel like that

xBlood_Monkey 10 Builds 3 points 25 months ago

I'm pretty sure he just took off the side panel..

RyneSmith 7 Builds 3 points 25 months ago

Haha oh wow... facepalm

xBlood_Monkey 10 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

Yeah... :p

inaeseru 1 point 25 months ago

What kind of cables did you use for the build?

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

silverstone

thefishkid1 2 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

Did you change fans on the H100i? Or can the stock fans use the color inserts?

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

Yes i changed the fans. The stock do not have the interchangeable rings.

usmc0811 1 Build 1 point 25 months ago

wow that's fast! very nice!

MichaelNiayesh 1 point 25 months ago

How did you get those things that can adjust the brightness/power etc on the 2nd last pic?!

EDIT: Nevermind :)

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

andy129 1 point 24 months ago

how did u mount the 240 water cooling

UncalledForGabe 1 Build 1 point 23 months ago

Damn, your one of the lucky ones! I can only get 4.5ghz with those temps

Trinity596 3 Builds 1 point 22 months ago

i like what you did for this build. incredible specs! great job!

colflame 1 point 22 months ago

I'm just about to build one very similar to yours! Without the raid 0 ssds though lol. Any tips? Also did you mount the H100i in push config?

ImPrettyIrish 1 point 17 months ago

I suppose you can call it the hulk. It is, after all, green and powerful.

Jordik 1 point 14 months ago

Almost 1.4 Volt i thing if CPU could talk it would say "I am on FIREEEE" And cool build bro :D

koops 1 Build 1 point 22 days ago

Corsair H100i is not a very good cooler and you successfully reached 5.0GHz. You must be very lucky.

RedLaser 0 points 25 months ago

Why have you got a bitfenix logo as your screensaver when nothing is from bitfenix??

Other than that, it's a very nice build apart from that you didn't need that speed of RAM as it makes no difference really (It's all about timings/latency)

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 4 points 25 months ago

Its just a background lol . Thanks

RedLaser 2 points 25 months ago

Shoot, I'm sorry... I never realized that you where the guy behind the "green machine". That's a very good build and I love the colours of it.

ItsJxzza 3 points 25 months ago

He had it from his other epic Prodigy builds

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

someones been watching! :) thanks!

ItsJxzza 2 points 25 months ago

Lol ;) Love your builds!

littleb 0 points 25 months ago

Do you have a Instagram or Twitter i can follow you on?

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

I do not at the moment :( but would like to start one soon.. I just don't have time... i might find someone i can pay to do that for me :)

ItsJxzza 1 point 25 months ago

I could help man :D

DicktwisterTheSeccond 0 points 24 months ago

you do know that RAID 0 with SSDs can actually kill them right..? not to mention that most RAID controllers can hardly keep up with the speed and most of the time can even slow the SSDs down.

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 2 points 24 months ago

well see about that

tmladd -1 points 25 months ago

Is this a good build? (I am new to building pcs, I want to make sure I am getting everything right!)Thanks! http://pcpartpicker.com/user/tmladd/saved/1Yqv
