Gaming and general computing. Overclocked to 4.5 ghz. The case and power supply make it difficult for good cable management, but it still came out pretty well.
Should probably have waited to post the build after you've installed the graphics card. Otherwise, people just assume you didn't/won't buy one even though you want to game.
I think your part choice is fair, and the only real issue I see is the incompatibility of the 3570 and the Z77 mobo. It works but you'll gain no benefit from it. Overall cable management is poor, that said, it's not the worst, and I'm not sure how much room that case gives from cable management.
Once you're used to Win8, you'll enjoy it from a pure speed aspect. It's just overall much faster and more efficient than 7 and compatibility thus far is pretty darn good!
Why s this at a -6?
I'm good with your parts choice but would prefer the "K" version i5. I'd also if you cleaned up the cables a bit it could help your air flow.
Ive replied to others, I have the K version, i made the mistake on the part list.
I don't get the hate on this built. The selection of parts are great albeit the non-K processor. Loving the Super Flower OEM PSU though. I've read great things about them.
EDIT: Oops my bad. The Tachyon and Capstone Series are Super Flowers. This ones a HiPower OEM. Anybody know anything about this one?
Gah i made the mistake on the processor. it is the K version I5
Why not the 3570K. Not much use in the z77 board if you don't have a K part imo
That's not necessarily true. Many Z77 boards offer more features than other boards. I see no problem paying a little extra for those features, if wanted.
actually pretty much true, the main difference is that Z77 features are suited for overclocking and with a non K chip there should not be any manual overclocking being done so really there are not many other features the majority of people who aren't overclocking would care to have which is why having a non K chip and a Z77 motherboard just doesn't make sense for the most part.
i messed up the part list, it is the K version
It's a good build. I'll prefer if you get a GTX 660 Ti with that.
That would be stupid with the 760 at the same price.
