Have a unique open case design. Works well for working on/adding to when needed easy to remove dust. soon to come more ram another hard drive and a liquid cooling system.
nice build, but why didn't you get the unlocked 3570k for about the same price? with the h100i you could have easily overclocked to 4.5 ghz.
Where is the H100i going to fit in there ? The UD3H from Gigabyte would have been a better motherboard in this price range IMO. Is this build intended for Gaming solely ? And yeah, same question, why not getting the 3570K ? Finally, that's a huge PSU, 550W would have been okay, you planning on SLI later on ? Aside all these little remarks, good build, atypical case also I think the cable management could have been done better :)
Why do you have a locked CPU and a h100i?" More RAM to come"? 16 GB is more than enough. Other than that i like your case.
Okay as mentioned by others the h100i and locked processor? Soon to come liquid cooling? Not necessary unless its a pure gpu loop I guess... even though that money would be better spent on a better card.
Should have gone with a 3570k, only 8gb of RAM, a cheaper case, and a 7870.
Love the open setup. Must leave so much room for activities.
What in the actual? Locked processor and CPU Cooler... with an open air design nonetheless.... with a liquid cooling coming... do you want this computer to work on Venus?
Overdone on the PSU, unless you're making substantial upgrades. Which you talk about... but are in the totally wrong areas to make a 750W PSU useful!
What do you do in this build that requires more than 16 gb of Ram?
You could have saved a lot, or opt for a much better system for the same price and kept the open air theme. This unfortunately is the worst of both worlds, a decent enough system but not worth the price paid. But hey... Open design!
Just going over you probably could have saved 150 - 300 and put it somewhere where performance would have mattered and kept the case.
This build has lost me.
You already have too much ram with 16gb, why are you adding more? For gaming, you wont use more than 4gb for a long time, especially for your gpu. Number 1 component to spend extra $$ is gpu.
Idk bro decent system but it's kinda unbalanced.
