Description

My main goals with this build was to have a computer that I could play any game on high settings with. It's quite the upgrade from my rock of a laptop that runs on coal. It's not 100% done because I haven't purchased any storage drives yet. I was very nervous about building this since it was my first time. The only problem i had was the graphics card being so large that I had a lot of trouble fitting it in the case. I am very pleased with it and hope you guys agree with my choices.

BTW. I purchased the 780ti well before the 980 was released so that's why I don't have a 980.

+1, nice build

How are the temps with the h440? I'm torn between it and the fractal r4/5 as people said it restricts airflow a bit.

I got the R4 and love it, my temps are pretty cool to- like 30° idle and 55° load.

I have the H440 with a Kraken X61. Temps aren't spectacular, but I'm using Bitfenix Spectre Pros for Exhaust on the back and the rad. This seemed like a good idea, but I've seen otherwise lately. I idle fine ~30C, but as soon as I start gaming I hover around ~53C, and after gaming I'll drop down to ~38C and stay there.

I have a h440, idle at 28, when gaming at like 55 and load when stress-testing both gpu and cpu 70 with a small aircooler. IMO, the airflow is fine as long as you had some fans

It may seem like the H440 has restricting airflow but it actually has a lot more than you might think. I am very satisfied with it because aesthetically (in my opinion) it looks amazing. My favorite part about it is the powersupply cover.It gives a very elegant look to it by hiding cables.

So many new builders with spectacular parts these days, I wonder why.

h100i too mainstream, I woulda gone with a darkrock pro 3 or a better looking air cooler

+1 Awesome Build. Would have gone with 840 EVOs over 730s, but that's just preference.

As for the looks, this is my n.1 system of all I have seen here. Great choice for most parts too.. when someone picks 2 Intel SSDs and not a Samsung, means they are doing serious and do what they know (same for WD instead of ***p Barracuda, and power supply). Mobo and video card as well. I just dont agree on Kingston, you get something more with Gskill or Corsair for $10/20 extra. And well.. try an Eizo display if you get the chance, possibly a 16:10 non-gaming, professional series ;)

What is wrong with samsung drives? I am planning to do my first build too and I would go with a 850 pro 128 gb, later I would add another one for raid 0.

The thing about Intel is that they have incredible reliability when it comes to SSD's. Don't get me wrong, the Samsung SSD's are also up there but Intel just trump them in every way (except pricing).

Nothing is wrong and the PRO series are very good. But there are somethings that make the real performance, and you gotta do a long search to find reviews uncovering these details. For SSDs it is steady state performance, and consistency. If you see these benchmarks (very hard to find), you'll see Intel 730 series and SanDisk Extreme Pro are someway better than Samsung Pro (that is very good anyway). http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Intel-730-Series-240GB/Rating/2031 http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/SanDisk-Extreme-Pro-240GB/Rating/2356 http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Samsung-850-Pro-256GB/Rating/2385

you can see Samsung's is very fast, but has "terrible consistency", that's real world performance.

It was debating whether or not Dominator Platinums were worth the price but then i just settled with Hyperx because they fitted better with the color scheme.

Thinking about picking up an Asus ROG Swift but I'm not sure if it's worth the price.

See here http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=PG278Q

the second from the top costs much less than the ROG, it's still great (not the same quality of an Eizo but well, you got 3 more inches) and it's a great pick (4k monitors? no thanks. I bought an HDTV 10 years ago and only in last 2/3 years HD content is seriously available).

you can see its got 10 times more buyers thasn the ROG version, and it's new at $430.
