Description

First high-end gaming PC. A friend and I built it together. I did most of the attachments, he did most of the wiring in which his skinny fingers were quite handy. Omg, my jokes. u.u

External's motor died during transfer. May it rest in peace, though I secretly hope it burns in hell.

Replaced external HDD with the internal HDD. Replaced 200mm side fan with two 120mm fans, let me know what you guys think about that.

Anyways, I'm happy. It runs very well, graphics look amazing. I plan to replace the fans at some point with other 4pin 120mm fans with LED lights in each blade, and overclock my CPU. Thoughts?

When you find some pink and yellow internals let me know, I'd buy.

I'm stuck between i5 and i7. Have you found i5 to be good enough for gaming?

  • 80 months ago

Yes, i5 works great. I've tested a lot of newer FPS games on it, and have no problems playing maxed out.

I think this build is pretty well balanced. I have a few things to say that would've been a better way to spread out the money: For the motherboard you could've gotten a Gigabyte ZZ7X-UD3H which you would've saved about 35$. You could've also went with a hyper 212 evo as you don't really need a liquid cooler as your parts wont be running so hot. That would've saved you about 65$. Take that 100$ saved and at that to a faster HDD and/or a GPU like a Radeon 7870xt or a Radeon 7950. (I don't really like the GTX 660 so that's why I didn't say anything.) That's just my idea but that means in no way that this build is bad, I like it! How has it been running for you so far?

I've had the system running for about 2 1/2 weeks now and it's doing super, though that isn't really enough time to give a rounded judgement. I do a lot of video rendering and gaming, while also continuously hosting a game server, so it will be getting it's use for sure. It needs more RAM when I can afford it, and CPU will be overclocked soon.

Why did you get a 2 TB drive that's 5400rpm? Also what kinds of games are you playing?

  • 80 months ago

It was cheaper for now, since my external's motor died on me I had to make a local emergency run. My tiny SSD doesn't quite cut it.

not exactly my personal decisions for making a $1300 system, but for all intents and purposes everything looks fine. my only gripe is the power supply. you'll definitely want to keep an eye out on that PSU because Coolmax isn't known for making good PSUs.

there's actually a post on Reddit that explains everything when you build with a "cheap" power supply: http://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/comments/1crqcl/the_true_cost_of_building_with_a_cheap_power/

I do plan to upgrade the PSU and some other stuff sooner than later, I know it's a cheapo. Slightly under half of these parts came from my old system as well as friend discounts, I spent a sum of $950 on the new bits. As for now, I'm going to put my faith into it, but if it fries my **** I'll make sure to exact my revenge.

lol alright, i wasn't aware of your outlook. when you do go looking for a new power supply, you won't go wrong with Seasonic-branded and Seasonic OEM power supplies.

I personally would of gotten a decent air cooler, as those perform the same as most water coolers for cheaper-

maybe of gotten a slightlu getter power supply...but meh...

I like it a lot, it's very roomy. Sorry for such a late reply.

Is complaining the only thing people do on this website?
