Permalink:   (35 comments)
Description

This is my first build and i absolutely had fun. I had trouble managing the wires and plugging in cables after the cooler but in the long run, I did it. It was also hard for me to get it running since i didnt know what to do after installing everything. Anyway, now all ihave to do is purchase another set of ledtape for the front mesh and top part of the case and also change the front fans then i'll be good to go. Also i need to place my 3m di-noc(black and red) somewhere. Suggestions are open. Thanks.

Sexy build!

I'm assuming you're planning to crossfire in future?

 
 
dizeee23 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 13 months ago

yes but before that i need to get a better monitor and an awesome desk. I stumbled upon this http://obutto.com/. awesome setup. so many things to do first though. change my bed into a smaller bed. it currently takes up a lot of space in my room. and 3 monitors.

 
 
Zeus [1 Build] 2 points 13 months ago

There's always room for improvement, I'd recommend going for the monitor first.

Those cockpits get expensive sooo fast!

 
 
dizeee23 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

i haven't studied about that yet but i know its expensive. i have a friend who owns a set of those cockpits and it looks awesome. This is going to be my last purchase since im still not sure if i want it. I want to have tables around me so i can place all my junk(phone, candy, cigs, camera, etcetcetc) around.

 
 
theonelonewolf [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

As cool as it would be, I personally would probably rather have a nice good corner desk.

 
 
dizeee23 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

Thats what i have right now. But i want more leg space though.

Sexy build!! +1 Very tidy! I prefer it with the white lighting! It brings out every part!

 
 
dizeee23 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

i had a hard time managing the cables into a shape. it doesnt even look close to being still. its still messy. imma fix it soon after i add something else in it. good thing about the lighting is its NZXT hue. i can customize it to any color.

Oh and im also about to change the headset since it doesn't coincide with the theme. im trying to get this http://steelseries.com/us/products/games/dota2/steelseries-siberia-v2-dota-2-edition

 
 
alextargaryen [3 Builds] 1 point 13 months ago

I'm thinking of getting the Kraken. What is your opinion of them based on your experience?

 
 
dizeee23 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

i am satisfied with the kraken PRO. and the green color is vibrant. i mean it stand out really. the sounds is pretty good. but im unsatisfied about the mic. Although my other friends said that the mic is "not so bad", i think its bad. I mean atleast i expected a better experience in using the mic. i mean, maybe thats just me and my HIGH standards.

 
 
alextargaryen [3 Builds] 1 point 13 months ago

Thanks. Basically i already own a Turtle Beach headset which i use with my ps3, but i hate swapping it to the PC and back. I am very happy with it and i was thinking getting another pair for the PC and now i am between the Siberia V2, the Kraken Pro and the Turtle Beach x12. Thanks for your input.

Look at the astro A40's. They work with game systems, pc, and phones. Sound quality is great and can actually handle a fair amount of bass.

 
 
dizeee23 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

i haven't seen or tried an A40's as of the moment. None of my friends have it. Most of them are Razer/steelseries fans.

 
 
Kojitsari [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

I've used a few of them over the years (working at an electronics store has its advantages _^) and they blow the other popular headsets out of the water (razer, turtle beach), the multiplatform use along is a huge plus to me. Finding a headset that I could use with my phone, game systems, and pc was a huge plus.

dizeee23 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

sail218 [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

How well does the cooler clear the ram? Looks good!

 
 
dizeee23 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

barely. i mean it fits excepts you need to put the 2 rams side by side on the right. and the white fan outside the cooler is not in line with the component(cooler).

 
 
MichaeL925280 1 point 12 months ago

Awesome build!! The red & black wires plus having the VI Hero & 7970 showing a red & black color is just a beautiful touch. You just got love red & black color scheme when done right that is. That total price is super nice too.

dizeee23 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago
