Used primarily for gaming!
I live in Australia so parts were so overpriced -.-
Though I'm not a fan of the Prodigy, I really like this build. :)
Very nice build!
+1 Nice build. I have the same case in white with a Z87e-itx motherboard. Do you plan on Hackintoshing this? I'm wondering why you decided to go with the GA-H87N-WIFI instead of a cheaper motherboard like Asrock H87M-ITX or H81M-ITX. Anyway, if you do decide to Hackintosh down the road, the GA-H87N-WIFI should pretty much work out of the box. Also, the NZXT Sentry 2 fan controller might've been a better color matching choice, since it has green gauge bars :) The max watts per channel on each controller is 10 watts and the NZXT Sentry 2 is cheaper.
Nope, no hackintoshing! I just went with the gigabyte board because it is much more reliable than asrock, or so ive heard.
Yes!!! I went to buy the Nzxt Sentry 2 , however the shop i brought my parts from did not sell it, so I just went with the cheaper option of the BitFenix Recon.
I haven't had any reliability issues with my Asrock motherboard (it's been rock solid and Asrock is great with bios updates, they even throw in custom fixes for the Hackintosh community :p), so it's funny you mention that because Asrock was spun off by Gigabyte a couple years ago.
Random question, are Australian girls oddly tall?
Oh and also the Gigabyte board supported my cable management so much better, that was another plus!
but yeh its just Gigabyte are a much more trusted brand!
and no hahahahaha!!! German girls are though! Aussies girls are quite small compared to most countries
These prices aren't that bad for Australia! I was expecting a much higher price tag haha ... Unless you haven't change them to AUD haha
Yes i have not changed it to AUD. It cost me $1500 AUD for all the parts excluding the Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor and Windows 8
So when those are added on, it exceeds $2000 AUD
Ouch! haha :( it's still a great build!
Why didn't you go with a K series CPU; They aren't that much more expensive and you can overclock in the future.
you also need a z87 chipset mobo, and a good one fo those for overclocking certaintly wont come for the price of that h87 one he picked up
EDIT - my bad, forgot it's mini itx, yeah he could have got a z87 board for barely more
Because im not too interested in overclocking, plus in Australia, it costs an extra $30 for the K series cpu, plus another $30 for a motherboard capable of overclocking, plus another $50 for an after market CPU cooler, so it was not worth it in my opinion
I'm sorry I forgot you are in Australia. In Poland the parts are expensice but not as Expensive.
That's some bad-*** coloring, I love it!
This is a really, really good PC for $1000 (Minus peripherals) +1. How big was the price difference for you between the i5-4670 and the i5-4670k?
$30! but then you have to take in account all the other upgrades i have to make in order to be able to overclock
This is definitely one of the better Prodigy builds I've seen. +1
Everything in Australia Cost More, thats is really sad for australian people :( I Feel your pain
How is that windowed?
Hey, question here. Do you use the antenna for the wifi? Mine will be sitting right next to my router and I didn't know if it's necessary. Thanks.
