This is my first custom build PC:) I believe I could have done better job with internal cable management, but I believe it's not too bad this way as well.
Great looking pc. Total overkill for 1080p gaming and the psu and ram is a bit excessive.
But this sucker is super future proof and will be begging for a 4k monitor in the near future.
Not future proof. The 780 Ti does not fare very well with 4K gaming, at least not as much as I'd like. I'm sure the top of the line model GTX 800 will vastly outperform the 780 Ti.
But you are right, the RAM and PSU (as well as the CPU) won't do any better in gaming.
I agree! There is NO such thing as "future proofing" in computer gaming.
good god the ram and psu is excessive...yes i see that it was stated before, but i suppose if youve got the cash...go big or go home.
This. Is. Beautiful.
U just slap on items with highest prices or are u serious?
Not really. The purpose was not to buy the most expensive parts. Just I wanted to go with 2011 Chipset. And to utilize 6 cores I was suggested to go with rampage :)1200W was aimed for the future if I can afford multiple GPUs.
So you are just going to be gaming with this?
Wow, you sure didn't cut any corners with this build. I'm not sure the 2011 chipset is good for you if you aren't going to be doing any serious computations (professional editing, SQL, etc.), just gaming.
3D Max + PowerPoint + some CAD
Total overkill, but hey i like it. You can easily upgrade now for the 800 series and get 3 way sli if you really wanted to! Just 1 think is your ram all in the first 4 slots, cos its in the wrong config for quad channel memory
Matty, thanks for the notice. What is the right way then ? Shall I move all 4 to right or just half of it ?
Hi, have a read of the asus black edition mobo. it should show for quad channel memory you have two sticks of ram either side of your 4930K. not all 4 sticks on one side. matt
i read the mobo for you look on page 1-11. it shows that with 4 sticks you want it in A1 B1 C1 D1. matt
Hi How is the phantom 820 case? Does it feels nice? I heard it;s matte black so does matte give you a waxy and rubbery feel on the outside of the case? nice build!
Heya, sorry for the late reply. Ehm case is really spacious inside, great for any enthusiastic build. But, yeah, to be honest top of the case feels a bit 'cheap' i would say, though from distance it looks just fine. But i am quite happy with :)
I have the phantom 820 now but i cant find the LED connector. I thought it was a SATA connector, i connected that and it didnt work.
