Theme for this build is red and black
I'm planning to go triple monitors soon, so thats why I chose the 780 and the IPS display.
No freaking way!!!! I was about to build this exact same build cables and all excluding the power supply... Now I have to choose something else.
Atleast I can see what it would've looked like.
Ya dude, i totally have a spiracha bottle on my desk.. of course
Hahaha, I need them, ASIAN Redbull.
Matches your red build.
How are those headphones.
They are superb, no complaints, I love the colour on those headphones, makes it look exotic.
Where did you get the custom 24pin extender/cable in red and your video card extention cable?
Silverstone tek custom sleeved cables :)
how's the monitor for gaming? thinking about getting this monitor too so would appreciate feedback!
Fantastic. if you want good colours and IPS, pretty good as long as u're not a pro gamer and require 1ms
Did you have any problems with compatibility between that memory and your mobo?
Can you add some more pics of the inside? I was thinking of making a similar build with mostly the same parts and wanted to see how the red fans/red sleeved cables and Hero MOB all looked inside a R4 with the h100i.
How much room is there between the bottom of the rad and the top of your RAM slots? I'm trying to figure out if a h100i will fit in a Fractal R4 with a Maximus VI Formula.
maybe a centimetre, but since the H100i is a 120 mil rad, you can offset the mounting since the R4 top mounts supports up to 140 mil
Great build! What kind of a job does that monitor do in games, since it's only 60hz?
nice build !! i want to buy cables like yours what exactly am i looking for? thansks!
1 of each?
Maybe on christmas if I catch any good deals
lol'd at that background xd
Nice red/black theme. How quiet is your R4?
It's pretty quiet when I'm running my H100i and gtx780 at default, at performance mode its not quiet at all.
How many grommets are there?
1 at the bottom 2 at the sides 2 at the top. I find building in this case that the grommets were too small, my GPU 8+6pin I cant fit through the grommets, ended up just routing them over the mobo panel thingy.
Just curious, whats the maximum amt of fans you're able to put in the R4?
i have all of them occupied, 2x140 front, 2x120top, 1x120 rear, 1x120 bottom. so 6 fans, they all can be either 140/120
also if you have the non windowed version you can add another on the side panel
You are decked out in cooler master peripherals.
Hahaha, I cant find any other brands that have red/black theme throughout.
I needed flawless optical sensor and brown switches, basically only coolermaster met my requirements. + I cant stand having different brands for my mouse kb and mousepad. hahaha
Nice choice of headphones!
The background is gold. As is the random Sriracha bottle on the desk LOL!
It's my redbull.
Shoulda been patient and got the upcoming AMD Radeon R9 290X.
I really don't think he's going to be let down by a 780.
I know but he shouldve at least waited for real 290x benchmarks which there arent any yet, but the leaked ones beat the titan at the same price point as a 780.
I built this about a month ago when there was still little to no info on the 290x, and Frametime issues with crossfire and eyefinity
This is just my opinion but I would have spent a little less on the build and maybe I would have gotten a real desk. But It is a very nice build thanks for sharing!
I'm renting an apartment near my college so I will stick with this until I have a more permanent place. I needed a big, portable and cheap desk. This one works surprisingly great! There isn't any wobble and it folds up nicely.
