Works great for gaming. No problems other than the lack of cable management. I had a little scare installing the H60 (cpu running at 70 deg C because the pump wasn't running but that's been fixed) (:
+1 nice build
Nice job for the money. Love the blue fan.
I disagree with "Nice for the money"
Thanks. I was going to use a thermaltake msi comander but I dicided not to and I'm glad I did.
Good balanced parts list. Good choices for this budget.
Cable management in this case is pretty good for the price. You should be able to get everything except the main motherboard power connector behind the motherboard tray. Keep in mind the fans that come with the case are total garbage. I have two builds in this case, and both had thier first fan failure within 6 months. All of the fans except the LED fan have failed by the 2 year mark. For the price it's still better than expected, just something to keep in mind.
If you need more fps down the road, don't be afraid to add a 2nd 7770; your board and PSU can support it. With the prices on the 7770 now, this makes a lot of sense. Combine that with a better CPU cooler and a mild overclock and you should get a decent improvement without spending a whole lot.
Thanks for the tips about the fans but I think my mother board only has 1 PCIE x16 slot so I would have to upgrade my motherboard to????????????????
I looked on it on Microcenter it has two.
Never, ever put your mobo on top of the bag. The outside is conductive...
If the inside of the bag is non conductive, how is the outside of the bag that's made of the same material conductive? You could even test this by putting and multimeter on the static bag and it would read infinite. Don't post an ignorant comment about that "urban legend" because it's simply not true.
OUTSIDE the anti static bag is electrically conductive and the INSIDE is NOT coated. This electrically conductive coating outside the bag creates a faraday cage, protecting the stuff inside from static shock. research how a faraday cage works. #TheMoreYouKnow
my pleasure :)
You obviously don't know about static. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQRIzgEVsjI
Apply water to BURN!
you probably could have gone better with the cpu and the gpu, but otherwise nice build
I would have but that's all that would fit in my budget.
Should I upgrade my cpu or gpu first or perhaps both?!?!
What games do you play? And what fps?
I play a lot of borderlands 2 max settings around 40-55, Kerbal space program 30-60 depending on how big the ship is, CSGO runs fine, and some BF4 at medium at 30-50 depending on how many people are on the server and what map im playing, also BF3 40-60:)
