Description

After a year of saving up my money and researching I've finally build my dream PC. Bought the GTX 680 and a week later the GTX 780 came out :'( but I'm going to save up for the GTX 780 or see what AMD releases. But this is still an amazing PC. I'm 15 and built this all by myself with my money. Looking the get 2x8 GB of ram next so I'll have a total of 24 GB. Haven't got into overclocking yet but I plan to, Just don't know how to yet in the Asus Sabertooth Z87 Bios. The last couple of the pictures are just stuff I have. Let me know what you guys thank. FYI Mach 5 means 5 times the speed of sound.

Nice looking build. Just curious as to why you went with the H80i. Looks a little strange with the 120mm rad at the top, probably have room for a 240mm rad. Also, I have experience with OCing the sabertooth (see my build), it will be interesting to see what you get out of it! Cheers.

Thanks, I'll check your build out, and I got the H80i because well I don't know. But I should of got the H100i nstead, non the less it's still good.

For the price, you probably should have because it would have fit and its only a few dollars more. I guess it doesn't really matter because the performance difference is tiny, but still...

Yeah, I may upgrade it in a few months.

Really enjoyed browsing your photos, good build, and as other peeps said get the 780 instead from Evga, that will increase premormance, nice cable management, all looks neet, this is one of those build were i agree with the sabertooth because it makes it look A LOT better, It's worth the 50-60 USD, Good gaming PC, good for rendering stuff, if you're gonna stream you maybe wanna upgrade your RAM To 16gb, if not you have a damn solid build, awesome job. +1 from here!

Looks great. Not a fan of the LEDs though. Ruins the clean aesthetic, but still is very nice.

HAve you attempted to overclock yet? For me, simply overclocking to 4.2 with my i7 and H80i results in temps hitting 100C.

Wow, that shouldnt happen. You sure you installed it properly and added good thermal paste?

I removed the cooler to see what the deal was - turns out that it wasn't making full contact even though the screws were maxed out and rigid. I picked up some TC and reapplied the cooler with no improvement. It turns out that I needed to find and add 4 washers to the back-plate of the cooler. Reapplied for a second time, I am now idling at 27C and seeing load temps no higher than 70C when at 4GHZ.

TL;DR Added washers to the H80i back-plate and improved temperatures dramatically.

I overclocked to 4.5 with 60C max

If you named the computer for the unit of measurement for 5 times the speed of sound, it's Mach.

Just curious, what will you be using this system (and 24GB of RAM) for?

  • 78 months ago

I changed the name, and I want 24 GB just so it's there and faster rendering.

Or you could make a RAMDisk :D

Except you lose all your data after you shut down!!! LOL

...which is why it saves it to the hard disk before it shuts down.

And you only pay the difference of about ~210 dollars(and return shipping plus tax) depending on which EVGA 780 you get.

Can't "downgrade" technically with EVGA's program. The 770 was designed as a ground between the 670 and 680. It tends to perform as good or better in many cases, but it's cheaper and EVGA wouldn't allow that trade. He pretty much HAS to get the 780, the Titan doesn't qualify for their program.

Yeah, the 770 is just a rebranded 680 that performs 10% better and costs about 400. I'm not sure if EVGA would give him a 770 and 40 dollars back, though.

You will be lucky if you get it in the next few weeks. I've been on the waiting list for 10 days and I ordered it full price without the step up program. I sold my old card on kijiji in like 2 hrs for more money then trading, but now I'm stuck with my old 8800GT lol
