Description

AMAZING MACHINE! This is my 2nd gaming computer (my dad built me 1 when i was 9 so this is really my first.) Hasn't had any issues at all since i first booted it up 1 month ago. Overall in my opinion this is a very well rounded amazing computer with very neat cable management.

I know the psu is overkill but I got it for $150 which is a STEAL compared to the $250 price tag :)

I see a cyberpower logo on your case.. did you built it?

honestly yes I ordered from cyberpowerpc but I had 2 very good reasons to do so.

1.The PC was $50 cheaper to have it prebuilt and sent to me.

2.I'm 17 and my mother didn't trust me building a $3000 computer so she didn't let me order the parts.

(She knows nothing about tech I would of built it pretty much the same way cyberpowerpc did.)

That's the SSD I wanted for my build here

I wanted the 240 and I should've gotten it when it was on sale for $180.

Not a big fan of the case, I prefer a much bigger viewing window but whatever you want is your choice!

Nice build overall :)

Yeah i prefer a bigger window also but I just loved the design and led features of the case. It would be cool if NZXT made a phantom 820 with a nice sized window.

ya the only case that really comes to mind by NZXT that has big window is the 220 source

Great build although your temps concern me a bit.

What should my temps be? Right now idle there at 40-41C. And the under load temp was just an estimation. The last time the cpu was under intense load was 3 weeks ago when rendering in blender. I can't remember the exact temp.

That's idle? I've never seen idles that high I mean I know they're overclcocked but I saw a guy on here with his cpu at 4.7 and it wasn't even reaching near your temps.

My old amd 955 OC to 3.6 idles at 41C, liquid cooled. Looking online that sounds like the norm. OP should be fine. It is an i7 you know...

What is your temps under load? And I know it's an i7 and it's haswell but 80 degrees Celsius seems a little to high for my comfort level is all if he's fine with it then happy gaming!

This is pretty legit. The PSU is a monster, but damn cool none the less!

I would use that exhaust fan in the back as an intake fan for the cpu cooler. But that's just what i would do.

Good build & parts also the pics could have been better ;). That PSU is indeed extremely overkill. The soundcard isn't that much different from the chipset you already have on your card, I would say it's unnecessary and finally you could've went with 8GB of RAM instead of 16. You could have saved around 150$ or so for the same quality ;).

I wasn't sure about the sound-card I probably should of done more research on the MOBO. As for the ram, i'm using this PC for editing also so i needed more ram. I've already hit 14GB of total ram used so I think it was worth the cost.

Oh okay, didn't know that since it wasn't really precised in the description ;).

Did you overclock it yourself or did Cyberpower? I'm planning on getting the OC, 4770k, and H110 as well.

  • 76 months ago
  • 1 point

cyberpower overclocked but the temps were to high so i overclocked it myself to 4.2ghz

  • 76 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah. I've been researching them a bit and it seems like they ALWAYS set the voltage to 1.375 no matter what kind of overclock they do - did you happen to check if that's what it was before you started overclocking it yourself? 1.375 on a Haswell, especially the 4770k, without a really good liquid cooler is gonna run incredibly hot (not to mention dangerous since it will degrade your processor much faster than a voltage of <1.3 when compared to previous generations). I'd say even 1.35 is a pretty high voltage - once I get the rest of my parts, I plan on seeing what I can do up to 1.3v but don't plan on going higher than that.

WHat voltages are you running at for the cpu at 4.5ghz?

Overkill psu much?

  • 77 months ago
  • 0 points

The voltage is 1.35V is that a safe voltage?

The psu was only $150 originally $250.

  • 77 months ago

i have a 4670k at 1.35 its safe though mine is at 4.7 and maxes temp at 71c

Why does your case say "CyberPowerPC" on the front? Did you actually build this computer or did they?

  • 77 months ago

honestly yes I ordered from cyberpowerpc but I had 2 very good reasons to do so.

1.The PC was $50 cheaper to have it prebuilt and sent to me.

i agree with a lot of what computer101expert said i believe you could have done much better with this build it seems like a child picked the parts for this

ok i will keep it civil. you're a troll get off this website and stop making accounts

If you're going to make claims like "i believe you could have done much better with this build" and "it seems like a child picked parts for this", it would be proper to back up those claims.

Because all you're really doing is taking up estate and contributing to a cancerous wall of text.

It's cool to try and help others if they could better utilize the things they have in possession, but it's not cool to tell people they're doing it wrong without explaining. Just another talking head...
