I recommend some sleeved cables to go along with that awesome build. +1

benpeacock1996 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 57 months ago

I eventually want to replace the cables for red sleeved cables because it will look alot better that's for sure :) My intentions were for a red/black colour scheme. Black case, red lighting and cabling etc.

Man that comment is old. Still an awesome build, haha

Very nice build!

Thankyou

RobbieP 1 Build 1 point 61 months ago

What program did you use to determine load, how long did you run it, and what is your voltage? Nice build

cooperred 2 Builds 1 point 61 months ago

He's running at stock settings probably, and most likely used prime95 or intel burn test

RobbieP 1 Build 1 point 61 months ago

Once again, doesn't answer my question. Blend test, small fft's, length of time + ambient.

benpeacock1996 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 57 months ago

As for testing load i'm not quite sure what I used, it was a variety.

benpeacock1996 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 57 months ago

I tested overclocking the processor using the 4-way optimisation software that is included with my motherboard but friends of mine suggested I run the CPU at stock until it starts to decrease in speed. Then I will overclock it to regain that speed. As for RAM I run it at it's default XMP Profile of 2400Mhz.

did you have any trouble switching out the fans on the Corsair H100i? just read about a problem someone on newegg had with this.

I just built my first PC, and I am considering changing out the fans on H100i as well

benpeacock1996 submitter 2 Builds 2 points 57 months ago

I had no problems as far as I'm aware, I just attached my custom fans because the default fans are seperated from the cooler in it's packaging.

Cringes at yellow psu in red build

bbakker09 1 Build 1 point 61 months ago

Yeah he should have got the Corsair AX760

benpeacock1996 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 57 months ago

This was an option of course, but for me to eventually upgrade to a 2-way SLI system with 2x GTX 780s the wattage would barely be enough and leave me with little to spare. The 850 gives me that little bit more power.

benpeacock1996 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 57 months ago

This is also something I dislike, but unfortunately I was getting the most for what I could afford without having to scimp out on any of the other computer parts I wanted. Eventually I will replace this and fullfill the colour scheme I desire.

Get that dust outta there! :)

RowdyRedMTSU 1 Build 1 point 61 months ago

I like the side by side storage cages

ArrKayCee 3 Builds 1 point 61 months ago

Looks nice but damn, dust it out! Still +1

Yevgeniy_Onegin 1 Build 1 point 61 months ago

+1 Great build.... Almost identical to my build http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/LKN

Lazyboy_Chair 1 point 58 months ago

Do you have any problems with your ram being 1.65volts and using that cpu together? I clicked on the specs online and it shows 1.65v instead of pcpartpicks showing 1.5v

benpeacock1996 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 57 months ago

I don't think so, I haven't had many problems with the RAM. Sometimes i've had to reactivate the XMP profile but thats nothing serious I don't think. It has only hapened once or twice but has never stopped the system responding so.

benpeacock1996 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

One thing I did forget to mention but still causes no problems is: When I shutdown the system a window pops up saying' The memory couldn't be read' but then disappears and shuts down as it should so.

A description would be nice, just to answer questions like "why only 250 gigs of storage?" Anyway, nice build.

Norm101 3 Builds 1 point 61 months ago

It is obvious OP has more than 250Gb. There are 4 HDDs in there. The SSD alone is 250Gb. I have 3 HDDs from old systems in mine. I didn't bother listing them in my parts list.

Mistermickey 1 Build 2 points 61 months ago

My mistake, did not look closely enough. A full description would still be nice though.

benpeacock1996 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 57 months ago

I have the SSD as my Boot drive with 250GB that I use for documents and applications. I have one 4TB HDD for all my games, music, videos, pictures, tv episodes, etc. Then I have two 500GB HDDs and one 320GB HDD working together for a file history of all my media etc.
