I use this machine for gaming, video editing, graphic design (photoshop), basically an all round rig as it covers everything I work in.
I did get an error saying the Hyper 212 isn't compatible with the Spec-03 case but I have a few mm clearance from the side panel.
This is my build. The case came with 2 fans included (x1 120mm Rear and Front) but I added a few more.
The machine stays cool, keeping all the components cool and it handles games at max with a steady frame rate.
My temps are:
Idle CPU: Mid-high 20's - Low 30's
Load CPU: High 40's - Low 50's
Idle GPU: 24 - 26
Load GPU: High 40's - Low 50's
Please note that these temps were taken from playing DayZ Standalone.
I haven't overclocked anything, as right now there really isn't any need to.
I am going to be upgrading my RAM hopefully by next year, as some newer games ask for a minimum of 8GB.
I will one day be getting another EVGA GeForce GTX 780 3GB Dual Classified ACX to SLI. (I know people say that a single card is stronger but seriously, my motherboard supports SLI so I am going to make the most of it. Besides the 780 I have on its own is an absolute tank of a card so I won't be SLI'ing anytime soon)
I know the cables look very messy! That is going to be dealt with.
Please leave your comments, I'd love to read what people have to say.
