Hunted for deals, instant rebates and sales. I think I made out pretty well.
I also got Metro LL for free with the Vidcard.
I'll add temps when I get a chance.
thinking about upgrading the cpu cooler???
The case is very small, there isn't much more space for a tower cooler, and I think you can only just fit a H80 in here
i know theres a few that sit flat by noctura
I've seen them, though they still use the 120mm fans, still need to make sure of space inside the case, for now the stock cooler is fine.
0.0 Saw the FT-03, instantly knew i'd love this build. This case looks so clean, beautiful and elegant it's unbelievable.
Same here. I love the case.
Finally someone else uses my favorite case! :D Looks awesome but why didnt you get the FT03 Mini, it would fit your GPU and Mobo... but not psu.
Great looking build I love that case.
Don't think it would be possible to SLI edit with that motherboard* so I'm curious why such a big power supply when a 550-600W would have given enough headroom to run perfect even if overclocked?
Yes you can SLI in this case: http://cdn.overclock.net/4/4c/900x900px-LL-4c1d6437_FT03Titan.jpeg There's an entire thread on the cases and they look awesome: http://www.overclock.net/t/1174563/silverstone-ft03-ft03-mini-owners-club Some are even custom water cooled
sorry lack of coffee - I meant motherboard, the builder has a mini itx which only has 1 PCI-E lane which means he can't SLI so the 850W excessive.
Ah okay :P
How does this perform in video editing I am thinking of something similar
My only recommendation for video editing for video editing would be an FX-83xx instead of the i5, and maybe a less expensive GPU if video editing is its main use.
Someone that's smart enough to realize that an i7 is not required to do video editing. Thank you for existing Lostingermany
Not required, but it helps quite a bit.
Especially in Premiere
Went a little high on the power supply to give some space for OC, cooler, more Ssd. Plus I wanted the gold for reliability and energy saving.
I have at least 3 tb on some old external drives so I got enough space for some games and major programs.
A friend of mine ran a custom cooler in the same case so that in my future as soon as I pay this guy off haha.
Not sure why my pics came up sideways? Just caught that.
Great build, Very well balanced. Would I be correct to assume you are using an old hard drive? It seems like 240gb of storage is very little, especially for a video editing rig. I love the asus boards. One thing, I would have gone up to the 3770k, only about $50 (230 from microcenter.) Also, 850w is beyond overkill for this. You could have had headroom with 550w. Overall, great build
550W for GTX 680...
