First build in over 10 years for me. Tried to build a pretty fast computer on a ~3K budget. Used for software development.
very nice build! that mobo price though...damn! dont you think you could have gotten away with like a $300 mobo at least? or does that mobo have specific feature that you wanted?
When did you buy it? It's about $100 less than that right now (no sales). Beautiful board, though.
about a month ago, just went with amazon for all my parts
wanted the native thunderbolt 2 support
got it! anyways, awesome build man enjoy!
Cool build but I nearly had a heart attack at that motherboard price. For that money I would have gone sli 780's or socket 2011.
was going to do 2011 with a 4960x but that was going to really surpass budget
Who needs the 4960x? 4930K would be a better choice.
Could have been a better rig for that price in my opinion, 620 dollars just for the motherboard?! Oh well, have fun!
This is a nice build... but why that motherboard?
There are other boards that offer TB... It just is a waste to have 22 SATA 3 ports and not use them.
Very solid build, and sexy at that
+1 and a few more if I could!
I would love to see even more pics (inside with the lights on....giggity?). This gets a +1 regardless, though. Beautiful build.
added 1 more pic of it in the corner of my workstation,.. lights are on
Good job keeping it clean! I guess when the goal is 3k, anything goes! Very nice parts
I like this build, i'm just questioning the motherboard. Also, you could've done x2 840EVOs in a RAID 0 config for faster performance. Also, why LGA1500 and a $115 on the OP Drive?
cant remember what i paid for OP drive, got it at a local Fry's, and picked up the highest r/rw speed i saw, probably got ripped off. LGA1150?,.. really wanted to use 4770K
i might just do that (RAID 0)
Nice build. One of my favorite builds I've seen yet. Great work!!
Holy PC batman!
damn, even went big on the optical drive
...got money in da bank.
Damn,... everyone hating on the motherboard price, on my 45 minutes of research, i found it to be the best mobo money can buy. disregarding price factor, what other mobo is better than this one for this processor?
The fact is you got one of the best mobo out there! Doesn't actually matter what you paid, sic build man!
Holy SATA ports.
Wow. Nice parts. Good cable management. Looks great. Overclock that puppy, and put it through some tests. Let me know how it performs.
looking to pickup the same mobo...w samsung ssd ....msata or sata 6gb port?
Man this case makes for a looker huh i am loving mine as well.
one suggestion from an audiophile: angle the speakers in slightly so they are aimed at your head.
optimally they'll form an equilateral triangle with your head, and be at ear level, on some kind of padding (even just the rubber stuff that goes under rugs) for the best sound.
loving the case though
and awesome build
wow amazing board.exactly what i need..well spaced PCIe x16 slots and TB.I hope to buy one.can u plz tell me exact length between 1st PCIe x16 slot and 3rd PCIe x16 slot.I really want to know that...and did u try that DP in feature...
nice is there a app that changes the x60 colour im planning to get one in my next build
nice build, what monitor is that by the way?
Looks awesome, that CPU cooler activates my OCD though...
As an owner of that cooler I can concur that it would drive me insane...
The NZXT logo is not parallel everything else
Yep, that would bug the crap out of me too.
Dang! If you got an NZXT case, you would have like every NZXT part that you could get. :P Nice build.
