Sooo.... You purposefully picked non-sensical parts?

+1 for being brave.

You can't say non-sensical parts without some context. dig-in and rip it apart. This is my first build

Sorry, didn't realize there were specific reasons for the part selection. Could you explain them?

Sure I was looking to build something I can game with using mid-level cheap parts. Some I had just laying around, some like the VidCard i just double up on. The goal was to build something big and expandable while buying parts that have losed that bleed-edge exponential price spike,

Okay, reusing parts you already have makes sense. What about the PSU? Why 1,200 watts? Was that a part you had lying around?

  • 45 months ago

No sir, I bought that. I had a 500 watts before, I wanted to not buy PSU again for a long while. I believe typically any part will last much much longer if you max load the usage at roughly 40% to the manufacturer spec. Things today are engineered to fail. I'd like to account for that so I can have a strong foundation for an upgrade. Anyways that was my logic at the time,

Your front fans are set to exhaust instead of intake. Flip them around for much better temps.

really? I thought all fans were set to intake except the top. How do you tell?

The back of the fan says corsair and has a bunch of motor information.

CPU: This is an older model, and is very overpriced. You could have gotten an i5-4690k, or even a i5 skylake for the same/lower price and a higher performance.

CPU cooler: Never even heard of this brand; doesn't mean it's bad, but you could have gotten a cryorig h7 or hyper 212 evo for cheaper, and probably similar performance.

Memory: 24 gigs of DDR3-1333 RAM is just.... odd. You might have gotten 2 sets of faster, 16 gig RAM for a total of 32 gig RAM, for an overall lower price, depending on the brand.

MOBO: Decent MOBO; definitely not the weirdest choice.

Storage: Seagate wouldn't be my first choice, but 3 TB for $85 is a pretty good deal. I would suggest WD hard drives and Samsung SSDs for the future.

Video cards: These are pretty nice graphics cards, but is kinda weird seeing them paired with that CPU.

Case: It's a case, not sure what to say. As long as it has good cable management options, doesn't really matter too much.

PSU: 1,200 watts is WAY too much, even if you are planning to future proof. You usually want about 100-200 watts max of extra wattage in your PSU. I would recommend EVGA b2 and g2 power supplies, Seasonic, or even higher efficiency Corsair PSUs.

Hope this helped. ._.

It really did thank you! fyi not a fan of the cooler, its very heavy and bulky and a pain to install

You're welcome. That took me a while to type.

I'm fairly new to PC building and hardware, but I've learned a lot about it from my friends.

where is the SSD for OS and apps? this is the single biggest improvement you can make to your computer.

a single 390x overclocked will outperform those cards in nearly every title and provide future proofing as dx12 is looking like it'll utilise all the extra vram in a 390x.

even up the ddr3 with another 8gb stick of ram, since forever mobos have preferred 1, 2, 4, 8 stick configs (this info may be out of date and simply PC - builder habit, i suggest seeing if your mobo manufacturer has published info on preference of ram config)

do some stress testing and compare temperatures with your cooling setup with those others have posted with similar setups online. if they're high your cooling fan setup needs work
