My 1st Build (Operation Carbon)

by Edison528

Description

1st a little background (sorry for the novel)... I am 26 and recently went back to school to get a degree in Cyber Security. Computers have always amazed me and always wanted to build one but I have not had the knowledge of how to. After creeping in Reddit I was lead to this site and saw multiple builds and videos. So I decided to sell my recently purchased MacBook Pro to help fund my build. While visiting friends in NJ one of them wanted to go to MicroCenter and buy some RAM for his Mac. I've never heard of MicroCenter let alone see one, and MY GOD! I felt like a kid at a candy store. Luckily for me They had a bundle sale for an i7 and a ASUS Maximus Hero MOB so i jumped on it (was broke after that because at this point my Laptop has not sold yet to fund my Shenanigans). . . and that's when it ALL started, It took me one VERY long night and I completed it on my Birthday!!

When I was in Middleschool I did some PC gaming with CS and Battlefield but over time that little Dell was not cutting it and I just played on PS or Xbox platforms. OHHHHH man am I glad I came back to PC gaming. I currently play BF4 and this thing handles like a charm. Ultra settings and never dips below 60fps (maybe even 70)

I wanted a PC that is future proof (for the most part) and can handle almost anything I throw at it. So far I am very satisfied.

WHY Carbon fiber? WHY NOT?! hahah I LOVE Carbon Fiber, I used to drive a 2003 EVO and had alot of Carbon Fiber goodies in it and it just felt right. The process once again was not all that difficult, just like my build YouTube was the key to success!

**I am open to any suggestions or criticism, keep in mind this is my first computer, I've actually never touched a internal PC component, however considering I'm going into the Computer field I might as well familiarize myself now. (Sorry for the long post, and the Mix in quality of pictures taken, some where taken with phone and others by a DSLR *

So many watches. I guess you were having difficulty keeping track of time !

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 8 points 36 months ago

Couldn't pass a good sale. . . plus needed an excuse to buy a carbon fiber watch display case =D

ankousmachine 2 Builds 2 points 36 months ago

damn good excuse lol

Darkseiders 2 points 36 months ago

You know what they say, Time flies when you're spending money, er having fun, er playing videogames. Yeah. That's it. That last one. 100%.

AdvancedPeen 3 points 36 months ago

Looks absolutely amazing from what I can see! It looks very cool in your pictures as well. Congratulations!

I usually see more overkill graphics cards in builds like this, but I think the 970 is plenty powerful especially at 1080p. I have the same card and max settings on every game with at least 60 fps and I have yet to attempt to overclock it. You should have plenty of headroom on your PSU to overclock as well if you want to.

Additionally, if you are doing video editing at high resolutions, it may benefit you to get a second pair of Corsair Vengence.

Anyway, it looks amazing!

unicykle 3 Builds 3 points 36 months ago

That weird feels when you bump in to someone that looks EXACTLY like you...

AdvancedPeen 2 points 36 months ago

Brother, we ride to greatness!

Limesterlambo 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Magical XD

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

YES! I forgot to mention that my next purchase is additional RAM. I don't feel confident enough to overclock just yet, but its definitely happening at some point. Thanks for the comment.

AdvancedPeen 1 point 36 months ago

If you do ever feel like overclocking is necessary, I recommend that you check out MSI Afterburner. It makes overclocking easy and is pretty reliable.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

WILL DO! thanks for the suggestion

brodosaur 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Works especially well with MSI tuned cards.

Sassy 4 Builds 3 points 36 months ago

Changed case through the middle of the build?

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

hahaha yes I did (good EYE) I went originally with the Cooler Master Storm Trooper case but it was so massive and bulky, and the NZXT was originally my 2nd option. I just went with it and am SUPER happy, especially since Carbon Fiber was easy to apply since its a flat rectangular case.

syntaxerrur 22 Builds 3 points 36 months ago

I'm glad you made this switch. The H440 is just too sweet.

hack3r 1 point 36 months ago

Yeah I really like the carbon fiber. Just purchased a matte black for the build I'm about to finish. I was looking at your pics and though whats with the carbon fiber?

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

yea I purchased it off Amazon. 3M do-luk (something like that)

Red_Eagle 3 points 36 months ago

This is a beautiful red/black build. The LEDs really finish this. +1

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

Thank you human! I was in a bin between red and white, but I fell RED LEDs would have been overkill. . . So I opted for the White NZXT LEDs which have a nice little button on the back you can press and POWWW they turn off. pretty nice feature.

Mike2015 2 Builds 3 points 36 months ago

In the 2nd picture, you show a different case than the one that you actually used and you also have an ODD which I don't believe the H440 has a spot for. Did you return your original case or something?

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

(Copy & Paste from other response):

Whiteshadow001 3 points 36 months ago

Beautiful setup man! Love the carbon fiber!!!

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Thank you. That's my pride & joy... not the 2K invested on the PC... but just the $100 spent on 3M Carbon Fiber roll hhahaha

Whiteshadow001 2 points 36 months ago

I'm going to have to do something like this later on. I freaking love it man. I'm a carbon fiber junkie as well, it's everywhere on my 2016 WRX

Cyberpower87 2 points 36 months ago

Wow such a nice build man :). Im kinda looking to build a similar pc soon, how is the Nzxt h440 im looking to build in that case.

PrestonC 2 points 36 months ago

It depends, for the price it is far inferior to other options, most notably the phanteks enthoo pro. If you are building for looks go with the h440 but if you want literally 3 times better cooling and still a great looking case, go with the enthoo pro. Look up videos on the cases

Cyberpower87 2 points 36 months ago

Thanks, i'll do it bit more research before i pull the trigger.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

DO IT! (Shia LeBeouf voice) its a fairly light case, easy to move around & sturdy. Has good dust filters which is a MUST. I move my PC to my girlfriends house on weekends and it's never a hassle. Also a HUGE selling point for me is the hidden PSU and wires which I LOVE! going from a nice big ol case (Cooler Master Storm Trooper) to this is a dream!

PrestonC 2 points 36 months ago

Looks great but the parts are extremely questionable. 8gbs of ram, and a 970 with this mobo? This is like $150+ wasted on the motherboard. The 970 is just a bad buy, looks amazing however, maybe get 2 more ram sticks

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Yes, when doing the build Money started to dry so I could not get the additional RAM, but next on my list after Christmas is more RAM. Down the line I do want to look into the 980 hybrid, however that's in a year or 2.

PrestonC 3 points 36 months ago

By the time you want more, the 980 hybrid will be obsolete, you can get something like a 1080 or whatever the next thing for nvidia is. Unless Intel does something drastic because of AMDs zen CPUs, that i7 will literally perform identical to processors in the future and not affect gaming

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Very nice build! love the Carbon Fiber! just like you I also have CF glasses, Money clip, my old car was covered in it! hahaha its an awesome look

paskowitz 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

What glasses do you have? I think next build I am going to use Plastidip and CF the majority of the case.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

I have a pair of RayBan Aviators that are carbon fiber (cant tell since the hands are thin but its there)

paskowitz 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

Nice!

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

thanks!

Ropota 2 points 36 months ago

His 1st build is mostly better than people's 10th build. +1

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Thank you so much. The way I look at it if I can do it ANYONE can. At the start of 2015 I had very minimal PC knowledge. . . I still do (somewhat) but I built my friends video editing Rig this past weekend with a friend and so far so good!

EcoFriendlySloth 2 points 36 months ago

this is the sexiest build I have ever seen

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Thank you, that means a ton!

Corbindalllas 2 points 36 months ago

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

looks good! you will enjoy that 980ti!

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 1 point 36 months ago

Anything that I should change?

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 1 point 36 months ago

Also for the case, h440 or air 540 for my particular build, or if u can recommend a good case

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Those parts look good (that cpu cooler looks amazing!) but personally I'n now a HUGE fan of the H440. very pleasing to the eye, Wish they did make a front cover that had holes so it can breath better but it does okay (When heavy gaming I just take off the front panel and let my fans exposed. . .

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 1 point 36 months ago

I wanted your opinion on monitors

1) http://www.frys.com/product/8069054?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG LG Ultrawide 34" 2560x1080 monitor $400

2) https://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-pb287q ASUS 28" 4K 16:9 monitor $450

3) http://www.frys.com/product/8043744?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG LG Ultrawide 29" 2560x1080 monitor $300

Or if you could recommend either a 4K monitor or an ultrawide for around $500

Thx

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Id go with option 1 or 2. I dont personally have a 4k monitor (other than my TV) so I havent researched them much but that 34 ultra wide would be a nice amount of real estate to get anything done and I can imagine would be sweet for gaming. but that ASUS is also a charm! cant go wrong with either one! Good luck! (I would highly suggest maybe Youtube reviews )

Giusto69 2 points 36 months ago

I'm so jealous I have searched and searched for that motherboard but, at the time I had bought mine everywhere was sold out or extremely pricey.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

YES! to be honest I wanted to sell this rig and build it again with the GPU that I want and other little changes but I refused only because I see the MOBs going for like 500+ which is insane. . . I got lucky and got the last on @ my MicroCenter (Maryland). I originally got the Hero VII with the i7 bundle but payed an extra 100 once I layed eyes on this bad boy.

Giusto69 2 points 36 months ago

Ahh... so jelly man. So do you plan on water cooling? That board (you probably already know) is meant for it. Hey if you want my steam and origin are daggeronemike we can play some games.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

eventually it would be nice. I want to upgrade my GPU in the future to a hybrid 980ti and might as well have a custom water loop right?! lol

hey man, Just wondering what sized 3M carbon fibre Vinyl you used. Thanks

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

2 rolls of 48"x24" and had pleantyyyyyyy left to wrap other things like my Xbox One ;)

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Black 3M DI-NOC Carbon Fiber DINOC Flex Wrap CA-421 48"x24"

$43.80 a roll

Tom14102 2 points 36 months ago

cheers man

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

(Grabs mug, raises it in the air and it tips over and spills everywhere) ****. . . THANKS!

Jaz_UK 2 points 36 months ago

very nice build, i'm looking to create a similar looking build but black/blue, how easy was it to apply the wrap? ain't wrapped anything before but if its anything like applying a screen protector for a phone, i'm doomed. I love the carbon fiber.

The ROG logo top right is a nice touch. :)

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

I was just as worried as you but the nice thing about the wrap is you apply some heat and it bends easier than a drunken stripper at a 4th of July party in Colombia (don't tell my girlfriend hahahaha)but seriously. if you messed up, peel off, apply heat and apply again. super easy to work with ESPECIALLY with this case since its flat and has no crazy curves. to get detailed lime mine for the front and top panet, you do have to removes some screws and pend some metal tabs to remove the red plastic vents to apply the carbon fiber nice and clean but its super easy! highly suggest to do it!

GhettoWatermelon 2 points 36 months ago

I'd like to know what you used to light up your build. I'm new to the whole lighting thing, I don't really understand how it works.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

IM NEW TOO! I purchased the NSXT sleeved LED kit. You simply connect it and THATS IT!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812170028

GhettoWatermelon 2 points 36 months ago

Thanks man, The lights look really cool. Nice build by the way.

BingoFishy 2 points 36 months ago

Normally I don't like those colors for the keyboard; but by "sorting" them, you actually make it look really nice! Well done!

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Thank you, I was originally sold by all the cool colors this keyboard provides and the cool effects it makes when you press a key, however after a while it got old and annoying quick so I resorted to ALL while for the exception of important keys which I changed its color. Much more easy and appealing to the eye.

BingoFishy 2 points 36 months ago

Does it make typing easier?

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

I usually explain it as it feeling somewhat like a typewriter. The keys are supper snappy and responsive, its almost like you know what key you are hitting. it is loud compared to your usual cheap keyboard but man o man does it fell nice. If there is a MicroCenter near you just walk in and try it out, they usually have one on display.

BingoFishy 1 point 36 months ago

Now, I meant the lighting. Both microcenters near me have a mechanical keyboard to try out

Tooth 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

Your pictures are very attractive with the lighting. You did a very nice build. I love it!

BrendanRichied 2 points 36 months ago

Where did you buy your motherboard from?

WitchOfTheWilds 1 point 36 months ago

Probably from MicroCenter with the rest of the parts.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Got the LAST ONE at my local MicroCenter! I purchased a i7/ ASUS Hero VII MOBO combo in NJ while visiting friends, I come back to MD and visit my local MicroCenter to purchase my monitor and while browsing the isle I saw that beauty with the lights shining down from the heavens above (not really, just a basic halogen bulb probably purchased wholesale from a Chinese manufacture) and luckly I had my MOBO in the trunk of the car (cause who brings down their newly purchased expensive PC parts down from the car? right?) and payed an extra $100 and walked out with the last one!

piemancoder 2 points 36 months ago

This is an amazing build, definitely going to +1. Carbon fiber is awesome BTW

WitchOfTheWilds 2 points 36 months ago

gfunk62984 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

Must say very nice build sir, looks amazing and probably performs just as well. How's that monitor holding up with gaming? I was looking at the same monitor but wanted something with gsync at 144hz but am second guessing that decision, do you notice any tearing or other issues with it?

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

No tearing issues what so over. I wanted to say I did see some people complain of this here and there with this monitor but overall its a very nice monitor.

JAShadic 2 points 36 months ago

My reaction to the first picture: So many colors, but I love it.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

No its 3M.

Z3ROWOLFHD 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

LED's ruin it man. Should have gone with cold cathodes.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

hahaha I promise you when it has the case door on and you see it from the front view the glare isn't horrible as shown in most the images, however I do have the option to turn them off with a push of a button.

Z3ROWOLFHD 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Its just still uneven lighting compared to a cold cathode which gives even lighting. Look at the build on my page and you'll see what I mean. LED's will never give that kind of light.

s.a.wood15 3 Builds 2 points 36 months ago

Mmmmm I love me some carbon fiber, did the same thing on my last build. Fantastic job for your first build, the interior lighting looks sick with those LEDs. +1 for sure.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Thank you, I love that stuff! I'm going wrap crazy around the house ( I have my 1st therapist appointment this weekend).

Thanks for the LEDs! I was going to go with red but last minute removed from my cart and went with white, I felt Red would have been overkill

fawncashew 2 points 36 months ago
  • Saw the build... 'bro'
  • Saw all the carbon... 'brooo'
  • Saw the watches... 'broooooo'
  • Saw the desktop background... 'broooooooo'
  • Saw you used to drive a modified evo... 'BROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO'

seriously bro, this is too bro-ey

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

hahahaha BROSKIII! if thats your EVO I LOVE IT! miss that car hella much. definitely will be owning another one in the future.

fawncashew 1 point 36 months ago

Thanks! Why did you sell up if you dont mind me asking?

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

The car had BAD JUJU! it was cursed! (seriously) too much crap non stop, clutch went out replaced (normal) got it out from show and on may way home got rear ended. . . back in shop, got new JDM rear and a week later hit and run (front end) got new Seibon CF hood and APR EVO IX front bumper and as the shop was test driving the car make sure theres no rattling or weird sounds BOOM hood flies open (back at the shop, as it really never even left).... got car back 2 months later as I'm driving home on i70, its super windy and BOOM guess what? hood was ripped right from the hood latch and slams right into the windshield (I think I **** my pants at this point). . . Went to the LubeCenter (mistake #1) and got an oil change, and well on my way home later that night I hear knocking. . . YUP! blown engine WHY YOU ASK? well numbnuts at the lube center forgot to tighten drain bolt. . . back in shop for like 1 month for engine rebuild (payed by them). . . and the list goes on . . . I sold it and a few months later the car was flooded in an area that never floods. . . THANKS OBAMA!

fawncashew 1 point 36 months ago

GOD DAMMIT OBAMA! I think every Evo has bad juju though, I dont know a single owner who doesnt send their pay check directly to thier car because there is always something wrong with them! Last month alone I had to have the gearbox refurbished, on the way to H20i in October my ECU died... I swear if i didnt love that car so much I would probably have driven it off a cliff

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Good ol H2o! lol always a good time, but yes, I sold mine to stop the hard worked paycheck to be dumped into the car. Now thankfully I'm back in school which would have been hard with an EVO, considering its like having a needy angry wife that's sexy as **** but always threatens to leave your broke ***. . . but you know you cant let that happen cause it will be very hard to find a classy big booty hoe that gets you going when ever you want. . . so yea there's that. . .

AmplifiedLlama 2 points 36 months ago

Awesome build, wish my 1st was this awesome >.<. Also, is that mouse any good, was thinking about getting it.

Good luck with your degree!

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

thank you so much! yes I love the mouse! the left side "sniper button" really comes in handy when sniping in BF4 as it slows down the mouses sensitivity for sniping. very cool little feature which you can also bind to do other things.

mauricearis 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

"MOB" lol MOBO

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

Rajenator 2 points 36 months ago

+1 nice!

C.higgins23 2 points 36 months ago

Nice build mate! +1 Although I would have gotten the hero over the formula, and just upgrade to a 980. The formula is sexy and rich in features, but overpriced.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

It is! but to be honest I could not get over the Armor it had, it was just amazing, its like one of those things you know you didn't need and would pay too much for but regardless what anyone told you, you still went and got it. . . lol but no worries I'll be getting the 980 Hybrid in 2016

CaptainSiscold 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

Gorgeous build, my friend. It's kind of funny, you have my keyboard, my mouse, the PSU I'm planning on upgrading to, the GPU I'm planning to upgrade to, and the same model of SSD that I have in my build, lol.

SuspiciousMuffin 1 point 36 months ago

Why do you want a 970?

CaptainSiscold 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

Little late on the reply, but hey, better late than never, right?

I suppose I should say that at this point in the game, I don't really want a 970, but rather whatever its Pascal-based successor is (assuming decent pricing). Ideally, I'd pick up a 980 Ti and call it good, but since I don't have the money for something like that, and only have a 1080p monitor, it doesn't really seem like a smart buy imo.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

that's awesome! its one hell of a build. Some say over kill, some say not enough. . . lol

SuspiciousMuffin 2 points 36 months ago

I would have personally gotten an r9 390/x over that 970. The VRAM bottleneck in the 970 would bother me so much. But to each his own.

jedijosiah 2 points 36 months ago

I would have dumped the liquid cooler and gotten a gpu upgrade to a gtx 980

Awesome, nice build, the LED's look beautiful. Is that a Nissan Skyline GTR for your background? :o

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Thank you, and yes it is! The main screen is the R34 GTR Z-Tune version (Dream Car)

r54dbnn 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

I'm guessing you like R34's...?

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

very much so! ever since The game Tokyo Extreme Racer Zero (PS2 2001). Very underated game that seems alot of people never knew about but I swear its still one of the best street racing games ever

r54dbnn 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

I never got to the end of those games, but I enjoyed them alot! I have Drift 2, Import Tuner Challenge, and TXR 3.

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 2 points 35 months ago

all awesome games! BUT then end of Tokyo Extreme Racer is what birthed my love to the R34. Skylines in general.

JoshD261094 1 point 36 months ago

Dude, this looks great! One question though, what are yoir thoughts on the M65 mouse? I'm to start ordering my parts, but I'm stuck on a few choices, one of those being a mouse. I want matching peripherals, as I'm also going with the K70 RGB, but I'm unsure on the M65 and was looking at the Razer Mamba Chroma instead!

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

i LOVE IT, JUST AS THE k70 IT HAS A TON OF CUSTOMIZATION (sorry for the CAPS) I personally love it but then again I havent tried the Chroma. I made my decision based off YouTube reviews. Maybe search a M65 vs Chroma?

JoshD261094 1 point 36 months ago

Yeahh, I did try that, a few good videos too, but they were all split decisions haha. They say its never a good setup until youve made it your own, so I guess I'll go with what my heart says haha, thanks man!

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Yup, there you go! If they get good reviews and both get a split decision just pick the one thatss most visually appealing to you and what you can see enjoying for a long time.

JoshD261094 2 points 36 months ago

Awesome, thanks for the input man!

Hello sexxy white GTR! lol

XxD34THxX 1 point 36 months ago

HELL YEAH CYBER SECURITY. I assume your degree is also called Information Assurance? That's what it is in California, and I've not heard of it being different.

I see your r32(or r34...) and raise my e39(in my dreams)

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

hahaha yes. I figured living next to DC that may be the smarter choice in career that I will enjoy and is in HIGH demand with few people to fill it. . . and there's nothing that beats an R34! NOTHING I TELL YOU!

XxD34THxX 2 points 36 months ago

ehhhhh I like the e39 imo

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

I ******* HATE IT! Its the one item I wish I would have never purchased, It disconnects all the time, I hear my voice in Delay, I've tried everything found on forums and NOTHING! I just use my Turtle Beach Tango instead and they work flawlessly

huh

WHERE DO I GET A CARBON FIBER NZXT H440!!! I NEED ONE NOW!!!

Edison528 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

you dont! hahaha get a regular H440 that catches your eye. go on AMAZON or EBAY and buy 3M Carbon Fiber Wrap. Besides that make sure you have an pencil to draw out your measurement, an exacto knife to cut out the CF, and finally a heat gun to apply the CF AND BOOM!

LOL! As if I never thought of that XD

Thank you. I wish I could have gotten a 980ti Hybrid but for now the 970 gets the job done.

hahahaha for a second there I seriously thought it was a rule! but thank you so much. Honestly anyone can do this. I had 0 experience at the start of 2015 and in May built this amazing machine. GO FOR IT!

but as far as the background... only a few people can handle its glory. To be safe make sure your in a room alone and have some fresh towels to clean the mess that will be eminent. . . cause napkins or bounty will just not do the job. . . http://www.speedhunters.com/2014/09/gtr-for-the-street-and-track-by-nismo/

ENJOY!
