Description

I use this for everything under the sun, the i5-4670 and gtx 660 combo tackles every task imaginable, from playing Crysis 3 in1080p maxed out settings, to 3d video editing, to anything you can imagine without missing a beat. The only problem I encountered with this build was mounting the Kraken x40 onto an 1150 socket. Although on the manufacturer site it said it was compatible, there was no provided mounting to fit the 1150. I improvised and used some provided washers for mounting the chassis fan to create enough space on the bolts to ensure a snug fit... Not sure if that's what they had in mind when claiming lga1150 compatibility. All in all I have no complaints, and the only thing I would recommend is a good SSD to go with it to reduce bottlenecks.

About the mounting of LGA1150. It's the same mounting holes and spacing as LGA1155 and 1156, that is what they meant by compatibility. It looks snug in there, but maybe remount it using the 1155 and 1156 mounting hardware.

Why 16GB of RAM? Not necessary for gaming. Why not the GTX 760?

for 3d editing/drafting and anything else I'd need in the future. Going from 8 gigs to 16 wasn't that much of a leap

the 760 is the only thing I'm regretting, but I end up using over 8 gigs ram if I got a lot going on

You have an EVGA. Go to their website, they have a trade up program. You give them your 660, pay them the difference, get a 760.

Holy crap, I'm so happy I stumbled upon your comment. I got a 770 EVGA myself, but who knows what the price for the 780 will be like in a few months?

This is awesome.

Yeah keep an eye on the policy though, I want to say it's only good for something like 90 days, but I don't have an EVGA card so I haven't bothered to look yet.
