Description

This is my daily driver use it for everything from work to play mostly browse reddit and play dota 2 on it. This build is a culmination of 1 year from when my previous build died play BF4. Started off just the Motherboard a 4690k and power supply. Eventually came to this state of what I consider completion for now . Did minor paint mod to the case painting the grills orange to match the Mobo. Replaced the front intake fans from stock too 2 Noctua 140 I had from previous heatsink. It is over clocked too 4.6.

That A80 is beautiful, You'd think that tiny fan would cause tons of noise.

That's exactly what I would worry about. OP, care to comment?

I'd also like to know :p. I'd guess it's used to cool the VRM heatsinks with an overclock, seeing as the rear and top fans are usually used for exhaust and don't get direct airflow.

My front Fans make more noise than the small fan in reality I don't even hear it. Only time you will hear it is if you set that fans to maximum and then the radiator fans are still louder than the small fan.

Sorry for Double dipping here, but would you recommend this cpu cooler? I'm thinking about upgrading to this from a nh-d14 and am curious to see if this can perform atleast similarly without the added bulk of the giant heatsink

Depending on case it should perform same if not better. It's a 280 can handle an overclocked 5960x no problem. I did the same as you I had a C-14 and got tired of taking it off to do any thing inside the case. I have only had it a week but don't regret it same sound output a little better performance due H440 airflow not cooler.

It's optional. It can be removed and not used.

why did you get reference 970s for 160 dollars more

If I ever want to watercool them I can just buy Refrence 980 blocks for them. Don't have to worry that the manufacturer makes a block for specific brand of 970. Technically there is no reference 970 Nvidia let there board partners do what they want in there design. These are just ones they sell through BB in the states with there name on it. Where did you find 970 for 220 dollars I would like to know?

How do you like the dual Geforce GTX 970s, I was thinking of upgrading from my single R9 290x

  • 48 months ago

its nice for the games that it actually works but I would say if your going to dual 970 just buy 980ti or Fury X.

I thought you packed all those horsepowers into this PC with 12, then I find out that the cost was missing, LOL

You literally could have gotten 2x r9 390x for the price of those two GTX 970s, another 8gb of GDDR5, and enough power to process 4k 60fps with no issues.

So your telling me I could have gotten a 390x back in May for $380 dollars? I purchased both at different times and both on sale at the time for $330. I would also have to upgrade my Power supply to run 2 390x in crossfire to run 970 in sli 750 is more than enough.

I purchased the first one early summer and now got the second one now during the holidays. Really just wanted the sli look to be honest. When the new cards come out next year will most likely sell both and get whatever the next top of the line card from AMD or Nvidia.
