Description

I'll be using this machine for playing games, as well as streaming them.

I will be getting a second fan for my 212 to run in Push/Pull. I'm using 2 NEC MultiSync EA241WM Monitors.

I had a problem with the graphics card power cables not wanting to go into place. So I had to use the SLI power cables for just my one card, which I'll fix in the future.

Ask any questions in the comments below.

Such overbuild, limited description, many cables.

Baurblades43 submitter 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

Their is a computer with 2 monitors, similar setup to mine right next to me that my brother owns. I moved the monitors for the picture, the cables are still there though.

my point is you indicated almost nothing that this build would be doing. Gaming can be anything from minecraft to crysis 3 which dictate the needs of the build. More importantly none of the things you listed require an i7, so you overbuilt. 16GB of RAM is kind of a divided issue but nothing you listed in the purpose of this build requires it so again, wasting money. 780 Ti gaming in x1200 (although as you just said not your monitors) is likely overkill unless you're going to dump another 300-500 on monitors. Either you should provide a reason why these things were purchased in the description or you should have done more research on what was required to meet your needs.

*edit Richland A4 builds can meet all streaming needs for around 300-350$

Nice Build +1

Baurblades43 submitter 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

Thank you.

Nice build. The 780 ti is going to love it when you add a third monitor. Those ethernet cables need a bit of TLC though :)

Baurblades43 submitter 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

My brother runs a computer next to mine, not just my cables :P

mallocunbounded 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

Adhesive wire clips. Do you share a room with your brother or is that just a computer room (first world problems)

Very Nice, solid build. How do you like that case? +1

Baurblades43 submitter 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

I love it! Fits everything nicely, carrying handle is amazing, and the filters for the ventilation is great.

Why the 3770k not the 4770k?

animusvox54 1 point 20 months ago

Hardly a tangible difference between the two and Haswell runs hotter than Ivy Bridge when overclocking. I can see why he went with it.

+1 on the build, looks great

mallocunbounded 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

I think you mean Sandy Bridge. Intel stopped soldering the cpu die to the integrated heat spreader after Sandy. The main benefit with choosing Ivy over Haswell is cheaper motherboards to go with the processor. You should take a picture of the 780 ti with the lights off, dat LED backlit logo :)

Exactly why I chose the 3770k over the 4770k, thank you.

IMO i dont like the case color but its still good build

Baurblades43 submitter 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

The case comes in 3 colors, I definitely love the look of the gun grey! It looks great.

Does the CPU Cooler make the computer have no sound?

The RAM is slow
