I...Have...ASCENDED! My days of being a mere "Console Peasant"are behind me! Fury is my first custom build from the ground up, and I am incredibly proud of what I have created! I look forward to many, many years of performance and service out of Fury! Feel free to let me know any thoughts/comments you might have!
What can I say that others already haven't already... It is simply, blazing fast. Coming from an A8-3800 APU all I can really say is just...Wow. Ran The Division benchmark at absolute highest settings, including 4K VSR @ 90 fps avg with 51% cpu usage...At stock clock speed.
This beast keeps the i7 nice and frosty, also is silent too. Or at least the other fans installed are louder than this which is good. I can't wait too see how much overclocking I can do with this bad boy.
This board was by far the worst component in my build. Features wise, it is excellent. Aesthetically, it is beautiful. But, as far as the layout, it is a complete pain in the a$*. It may be because I'm an inexperienced builder ,but it seemed as though the connector pins were just scattered everywhere at random with no layout/placement in mind. This made cable management very,very difficult.
Cheap, pretty, and fast. 16GB is what I was running in my old system, this is over 1ghz faster. 16gb was fine back then, im sure the same amount of significantly faster RAM will be just fine now.
Has been dutifully serving me for over 5 years now. Only complaint is capacity,which back at the time of purchasing it, wasn't too bad.
More storage then i'll ever need or use, what else can I say.
This is my favorite part of the build, and as you may have guessed, where I centered the name around. This liquid cooled beast is not only silent and frosty, but absolutely destroys The Division with every setting cranked as high as it can go, even with 4k VSR.
I had this case lying around, was going to spend more money on a different case until I unboxed it. Surprisingly good looking with plenty of fans for airflow. However, there is no type of room in the back for cable management so you essentially have to velcro strap and zip tie everything if you want anything resembling orderly cables.
Needed a new PSU for the hunger of the Fury, this one seemed to have enough head room for overclocking both that and the i7. Semi modular means no unnecessary cables which in the Challenger and the Z170-E's funky lay out was very welcomed.
Also had this lying around, does exactly what it's supposed to do.
I had bought this years ago in case my 1400x900 monitor failed, but it never did. I felt wrong hooking the Fury up to that, knowing what it was capable of, so I used this instead.All I have to say is wow. The jump for minimum settings on 900p to ultra on a 1080p IPS is crazy. Even if this isnt the best panel on the market right now, I didnt have to go out and spend $100+ for one and is stunning to me.
