Any particular reason for the downvotes on everyone (with ups on the OP)?

No idea, I've upvoted everyone here to balance it!

i think you have the wrong cooler listed, i think it is the coolermaster 212 evo. nice build!!

yatesl submitter 2 Builds -1 points 21 months ago

You're right, that was from my old PC!

ESPM400 1 Build -1 points 21 months ago

Not bad, but hell, that's some massive GPU droop (thought mine was bad).

How's the noise level with that CPU cooler?

Nice job on the cable management as well.

It's quite a heavy card! No issues so far, as it's securely screwed in.

Noise levels are fine. Loud on boot, but quietens down as soon as the OS loads. You can definitely tell it's on, but the case goes a long way to keeping it background noise.

They appear normal in Windows, but the portrait ones are landscape on here!

Why'd you decide on the 770 instead of a r9 280x?

yatesl submitter 2 Builds -1 points 21 months ago

I built this 6 months ago

Varked -1 points 21 months ago

Gotcha. Still a great build.

DarkTheGreatest -1 points 21 months ago

Really nice build, I think you should add some LEDs to make it even cooler!

yatesl submitter 2 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

I would if I had the windowed case.
