Description

Its a update again, I changed and tweaked a few things :

Changed the case fan from the bottom to the top, so that heat can be disposed more easily. My specs were not very stable before, now it is. In my bios, I changed all the fans to turbo mode. My pc is in turbo mode too.

Benchmark of my current settings : http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6561407 Almost at 8k! im super happy

Bf3 never dropped below 50fps, which is pretty good.

Future upgrades :

A more powerful video card. (7970 or 7950, 670 or 680 or crossfire)

A Ssd, which I don't need but could be something to add.

One more monitor.

A better keyboard 'n mouse.

Liquid cooling.

Let me know what you think in the comments! :D

haha yes! finally it took like 35 gb for bf3 with all map packs xD and I will edit the fps because it never drops below 50 now :P even in heavy action

More overclocks? But yeah, I know it is a huge file XD. I play with Anti-aliasing disabled now though because I like a constant stream of 60 fps and I feel AA takes too many resources for too small of a visual effect. Also I think you should remove the middle drive bay for better airflow too the GPU because you aren't using that bay.

MOAR OVERCLOCKING lol, I can't distinguish the difference between 50 fps and 60 fps anyways. And that bay is there because they are no front fans so why not.

There are no front fans? Fix that by moving the one on top of the case in front of the empty drive bay and remove that drive bay. This will allow more fresh air to enter the case and heat will rise naturally out of the top of the case.

If i'd put my fan on that drive bay? win-win situation :D

Get an ssd, you have no idea how nice it is, I would do that first, you will notice a huge difference.

680's are overpriced and really don't offer much a performance boost. Go for a 670 or 7970.

ok! but when i will upgrade, they probably will be new stuff already

Most likely if it takes till then get a 770 or a 8970. lol

The GTX 780 was released a few days ago, and it's going for $650. That should give you a general idea on what the 770 will cost. But that's coming out in a few more days, so we won't have to wait long. Nice build, by the way.

The 770 probs gonna be like in the 500, which is still alot lol.

Hey third times a charm. Very nice, really clean build with excellent cable management. Nice pics and desk setup too. Your future upgrades will definitely be a sweet bump up for your build when you get them. If you want you could remove out your unused HDD cage for better airflow.

Well, that would be an upgrade too because i have no fans at the front, maybe will take the top one or one of the cpu to put in front. will see

I really recommend the Asus MX279H 27" Monitor, they recently released these and the high quality monitors have not hit that high of a price, the resolution is 1920x1080, the newest and highest quality monitor they have selling is over 638 dollars with the 2K resolution. (2560x1440)

I also recommend you get a high quality Water-Cooler from Corsair such as the H100, H100i, or the great H110. Then overclock your CPU and most likely reach a 4.8/5.0 GHz on your CPU which will give you an amazing boost of FPS and other great things.

If you're looking to get a full water-cooling unit, then upgrade your GPU to one of the newest versions, because you will also need a quite expensive GPU Water block; so to save some money and time, just get a better card now.

Water-cooling is an excellent way of cooling your PC and is extremely quiet and of course looks great if you have the right and short loop to your system. Make sure you take your precautions so that you do not damage your system such as make sure your system is working fully before you install anything for the water-cooling. Then install it all and double check your fittings, make sure there will be no leaks because if your system does leak, then it is recommended that you let your computer dry for at least a full day. I advise you look up some involving and extravagant tutorials for your water-cooling set-up. Great motherboard choice by the way. [:

Upgrades are upgrades lol. I'll go with a water cooler in the future but custom water cooling are really nice, just super expensive. :P

At your max overclock on that 7870 yet? You're so close to 8K, you should try tweaking your ram now. See if you can tighten the timings. Also I found out why my 7870 Ghz was scoring higher than yours at the same clocks. It's because mine has Hynix memory on it's PCB which is faster than standard GDDR5 memory. It gives me a 300-500 point lead over yours in 3DMark 11 at the same clocks.

I tried overclocking my 8350 and my gpu aswell but it seems that any higher = occt failure and blue screen when running kombustor too long :/ maybe my settings for higher ghz needs to be changed, but oh well.

  • 79 months ago

Your CPU is nearing max temps at it's current speed. The Hyper 212 is not very good at handling an 8350's heat.

Now its about 60 max temp, i've seen much higher though. In cold days, it drops few degrees. But now its almost summer so its pretty hot some days.

You do know that AMD claims max temps for that chip is 62C right?

The gpu is fine though, only few degrees higher than the cpu.

May I ask how that case is? I'm debating on whether a Corsair case or a Phantom case. Do you think Corsair cases, yours for example , beat NZXT Phantom Cases. Response would be appreciated. Thanks

  • 79 months ago

Depends on the prices you get for them, if one is cheaper , than buy it. I would tell you to buy the c70 or the 650d.

Defiantly upgrade to a liquid cooler, and get, like, a Sandisk ReadyCache for your boot drive, or to cache on your HDD. c:

Yes! my boot is decent for now, about 20-25 seconds

Why upgrade to a liquid cooler?

  • 80 months ago
  • 1 point

Because now I have 4 fans near the cpu, and it audible. When i'll upgrade, i'll have few spare fans to put in strategic places to get a better aiflow, and temps aswell. :)

  • 79 months ago

That is a common misconception. Liquid cooling really isn't any quieter than air cooling unless you get quiet fans to go with it. In that case air cooling would be just as quiet. Water just cools better.

  • 79 months ago

It still saves like one or two case fans lol
