This is a good build, but they put the grommets for cable management in for a reason. With a little more time put into this build you would have a much better looking computer.
i'm not at all keen on the cable management. why get a case with routing grommets if you aren't gonna use them, y'know?
also, a description would go a long way. let us know what it's used for and maybe even what you did to get it like this. we love to hear that kind of information here :)
I'm curious, how's the 3350P compared to say, the 3470? Besides the clock rate, does the Intel Turbo Boost have a significant impact on gaming?
I was reading around looking at benchmarks, one of the websites compared processors and among them were the i5-3470 (Ivy Bridge) and i5-4430 (Haswell). It was a sort of 50/50, difference of 5fps, give or take a few. Curious thing is that the Turbo rates on the 3470 (2/3/4/4) is higher than 4430 (0/1/2/2), and yet the Haswell on few occasions surpasses it in FPS. The 3350P's Turbo is 1/1/2/2.
I'm quite a novice in these things and it probably isn't fair to compare the two architectures (then again, they seem pretty similar if you ask me, besides the higher TDP), but if I could cut back a few pennies, I think I'd probably get a 4430 in my next build and wait ever so patiently for the Broadwells to roll out. My optimism gets the better of me. But I digress.
So really, does it matter? Besides the whole argument on newer titles gradually beginning to utilize more cores and considering those whom are limited to a budget (like myself), does Intel's Turbo have any incremental effects on framerates?
Hmmm ive been wondering about temps on the 3350 with stock hsf. Mind sharing mate?
Can't go wrong with a 760, and the 3350P is a good choice. I would probably have gone with one in one of my earlier builds that was non-OC with a GPU, but I'm learning more everyday!
Could have gotten a higher quality PSU at lower wattage, since you're not OC'ing. Could be useful down the road, but even then CX ain't the greatest corsair series. Nice price/performance budget build though.
Other than that use your cable management options and you'll have a damn fine unit. I like your set up.
Nice build, I just finished a build with the same case.
But from what I see, it looks like you didn't connect the fans to the fan controller
I see you are using your Onkyo setup for your audio. Im planing to hook up Onkyo HT-S5600 to my upcoming PC aswell. Would you mind sharing how did you connect the onboard audio to the receiver and how is the quality/surround?
isent the cpu bottlenecking your gpu? the 3350p is a great cpu, but its not a 3570.
Just what everybody said try working on your cable management and clean it up a bit with those rubber grommets you'll have better looking system like that
Great sub 800 gaming pc for the non-enthusiast. Do some cable management to clean it up though
It means that there aren't integrated graphics in the CPU.
"Spaghetti festival" lol. Good one.
Nice Build by the way
