Description

Hi My name is NEPTUNE (14 YO) and I built this computer for my self, and I love it. I had no problems with the build but I had a lot of problems with shipping I had to make three attempts at buying my stuff online before it actually worked XD but in the end it was totally worth it, Hope you enjoy and leave a comment tell me what you think

P.S. new cpu cooler coming soon

I would've gone with a newer GPU, but that should still last a while!

the performance of a 680 is exactly equal to that of a 770

For the 680 DCU2 vs 770 DCU2, it's actually anywhere from 5-10% better because of higher clocks on the core-boost and memory. And cheaper (normally) although OP got his for a good deal. Plus less sagging, dual-slot instead of triple, and GPU Boost 2.0.

you can overclock the gtx 680's memory frequency to that of a 770s

Of course. Especially with a card like that massive DirectCU II. But you can also overclock the 770's memory from its already high point.

Alright then, I wasn't so sure about it. I wasn't saying that it was bad, I'm just saying I would have gone with something newer.

If i manage to sell my old computer i might buy another GTX 680 and SLI.

Thanks for the tip

SLI 680's would actually be a good thing to do, since the price is only going to go down, plus 2 680's would run everything amazing.

Nice build +1. I would have gone with a 770 but that is my only gripe. How is Corsair RM power supplys? they seem very high quality.

The CORSAIR RM POWER SUPPLY is great. it looks great and is quiet. I love that it has the 0 RPM feature witch means that the fan does not spin when it is under less than 40% load. witch is nice

Thanks

Love Stryker builds! But I'm extremely biased to liking Stryker builds I guess...

Good job! The Stryker's fun to work in isn't it? The big thing I'd recommend though is rotating your HDD bays so that the fans face the front. Right now you've got the 2.5" rack on the bottom of the case, which means you don't have bottom intake or front intake. This limits the airflow to your GPU and causes negative pressure, which happens when you have more exhaust fans than intake in a certain area, which causes a small vacuum effect that makes every crack and tiny opening in the case suck in dust over time.

And since you've commented about wanting to overclock I would definitely rotate the bays. With the Stryker, if you keep the bays sideways then you want bottom fans. If you don't want bottom fans then you should rotate the bays. And if you want the best (and more expensive) airflow, then you rotate the bays and put in bottom fans.

Rotating the front bays is easy to do :)

Thanks for the tip. I had one problem with the case and that was when I got it it it took me a while out figure out where the screws and all that was but other that that i really like it. it looks great. one more thing the 200 ml fan in the top (stock) is super loud

  • 76 months ago

Yeah I definitely know where you're coming from about the screws. CM thinks in the manual that arrows can take the place of words... The 200mm fan being loud is surprising though.

do you know if there is like a fan controller for my mobo

  • 76 months ago

A friend of mine has the same board and I know it allows for partially automated fan control. But only on 3 of the fan headers, and I don't know which ones. MSI calls it "Total Fan Control" (ironically). You can probably hook up 3 fans to each of the headers with splitters if you wanted to.

If you don't want splitters though, then the Stryker has a built-in fan controller on the front panel. I forget how many fans you can hook up to it, but it's powered by the molex that also lights up the power button. The only downside is you have to manually adjust using the buttons around the start button, instead of just letting software talk to a mobo and do the work for you.

I hope the RM PSU works well for you, I think I seen some issue with the 650 and 750W versions as there is an article explaining it. A thermal issue I guess.

Well it's a great build of course, 680 works because of the price and everything else looks good.

Hey guys what do you think about OC genie. does it work and after I get my new CPU cooler should i use it

  • 76 months ago
  • 2 points

PUSH THE BUTTON!!! >: )

I've used it once on a stock cooled i5 2550K.... temps didn't jump very much.

But then, all I was doing with it was playing minecraft, which it already did fine anyways

  • 76 months ago

Haha minecraft FTW got 700 FPS without optifine

For a quick overclock, sure press the button.

However, 99% of the time, you can get a better OC by doing it manually.

Yeah that might be the case but i have no experience in OC. Mabey in the future

I used it on my friend's 3570k with a Z77A-G45. Took it from stock 3.5 to 4.2 with good temperatures.
