Description

This is my current build but i will be upgrading it over time to 32Gb of RAM, i7 4790k and SLI 970's. This PC works well for what i use it for now, but i want to get into 2k gaming which is why i am upgrading. Currently on Battlefield 4 1080p, Ultra setting i get 100+ fps.

How was the NZXT Phantom 240, cause I saw reviews and the bad filter for the psu, where there any flaws to it that were noticeable?

I like the case, its good looking. I have had no problem with the filter for the PSU, it can be hard to put it back in once removed but other than that it seems to work fine. I do however have some problems with the structure of the case. The front and top panels are very hard to remove and feel very flimsy, i actually broke the lock on the front panel.

How exactly did you remove the front and top panels?

there are some plastic plugs or pins things that hold the front and top panels to the case. They are supper sketchy to take off.

It's not "bad". It's more like super basic. But it gets the job done and you cant see its ugliness so its not an issue.

+1 Nice Build. The Blue LED's make that case look awesome! I'm curious why you didn't get something aftermarket for the CPU cooler like a ~$30 cooler master Hyper 212 EVO or something? Also, why upgrade to 32GB RAM?

This is totally my opinion, but I think you don't need a second 970 for 2k gaming, limitation here is the 3.5gb supported vrm (its missing an important memory controller to use that final .5gb chunk of vrm). Sell it and get a card with more VRM for better 2k gaming, either a 980 with the memory controller the 970 is missing, or go big or go home with the 980 Ti. Or go AMD if you're into that. Depends on what games you're playing, but for AAA titles...

Thank you for the compliments and the suggestions. I havent gotten a cooler yet because i want the h100i v2 for the i7 when i get it and i havent done any overclocking on the i5 so i had no need for an after market cooler. I wanted the 32Gb of RAM because i tend to multi task a lot on my computer and i also do a bit of 3d rendering but idk i might just go 16gb. I have been reading a lot of statistic charts and 2k gaming test charts, SLI 970 perform almost exactly the same as a 980Ti, plus i dont have the money to got 980Ti, thats a $900 upgrade compared to a $450 upgrade.

Nope, its not a negative photo, thats what it looks like, but the camera quality isn't the best.

this build looks like the exact one at my local best buy literally, same GPU same stock CPU cooler, same looking modo, and same white phantom case lol!

Nice build +1 I'm more of a red guy but I must admit the blue looks nice. 1 970 should be more than enough for 1440p gaming but if you must then I always prefer to get the next best card (the 980) over an SLI build, as performance boosts depend solely on the game's support of SLI. Also 32gb is unnecessary unless you're doing some crazy **** with your PC. And this is in my opinion only but I suggest adding another front fan (unless you already have one; cant see it) for better positive airflow and less dust.

Other than that noice! :)
