Actually have the XFX Double Dissipation Black Edition 7870 installed
Love your part choices. I am a fan of AMD, Corsair cases and Asus MoBos. Great SSD! I would have gone with 8.1, otherwise I would not change a thing! Add some more photos please.
Well, at least he'll be able to upgrade to Windows 10 when it comes out.
Both Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 7 are able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free during the first year of its release. What was the purpose of your comment? He can upgrade either way.
I think you misunderstood my reply (SMk54 stating he would have gone with 8.1), my point was regardless of which Windows he has, he can still get the latest Windows (and have DX12) without any cost
I like 8.1 because it is fast. Tiles are easy once you get used to it. 10 is a blend as far as the start pulls up frequently used programs/apps as well as the "tiles". At least that is how the beta version I am using is set up.
Or you could just not use the tiles at all like I do.
Ah ok, sorry about that.
I prefer 7
Gotta show love for a fellow AMD build. 8350 kicks butt!
Also - 16c idle temps? That's frigid! What kind of temps under load are you getting?
I think I might have posted the wrong idle temp.
Agree. I have used the 8350 in two builds and several AMD APUs. All work well and are a great value.
Good part choices here. Build looks nice dude. Take new pictures if you can, quality isn't too good.
I will, thanks!
How do you like the k95? I'm looking at the k70 but don't like how the k95 just slaps in the macros
I actually have the g105, posted the k95 in error. Sorry
You should of taken advantage of the great top mounting place for a h100i but the case is a great choice either way.
still not sure if liquid is they way I wanna go or not? They do look sick though
With the h100i it is really easy to apply because the case has a perfect mounting place on the top and water cooling the cpu is much more efficient then using a thermal compound and a cpu cooler.
Is there any concerns for leaks? That's the only thing holding me back.
Unless it's like 15 degrees C in the room the computer is in, your idle temp is bad. Below-ambient temps on hardware causes condensation, which is bad for your computer.
I might have posted the wrong temps. What programs do you use to find true numbers? I think I used speccy?
Does the side panel intake fans have filters on?
They do not unfortunately
don't know why people get the Corsair fans when the Aerocool DS look better and are quieter.
love the color scheme! MURICA!
It says Feb 2013 as the date built so I would guess he got the graphics card a while ago, if not potentially all components?
I paid $239 for it when it was first introduced.
