Description

This is my most recent/current desktop pc. Encourage feedback. Gotten my cpu to 4.4 stable. P.S. this was done January 5th-ish 2015 so prices on quite a few of these parts have fallen since. Going SLI in the near future.

Part Reviews

CPU

Fantastic cpu, and a overclocking champ. Just miss that hyperthreading.

CPU Cooler

Quiet and keeps an OC cpu cool. I expected less but got more! Happily say im satisfied

Motherboard

No issues, Fast Boot is nice, OC fairly well.

Video Card

phenomenal GPU, and looks great paired with my 1440p monitor. handles 1440p very well

Case

Sleek and Professional looking, minus the window, not a big fan of flashy cases so this suites me well. not a full tower, so it fits in places a lot better and more maneuverable.

Operating System

Not a fan of the start screen at first, but its definitely grown on me. I can honestly say I enjoy windows 8.1. plus I get windows 10 free in july so absolutely no complaints.

Monitor

1440p plus dirt cheap compared to others. speakers built in are crap though. got a surround sound set up so it doesn't really matter but why include such mediocre speakers.

Keyboard

Little more flimsy on the keystrokes than i'd like, makes a bit of noise every time the space bar is pressed. which gets annoying when it comes down to the space bar is one of the most used keys in pc gaming.

Mouse

love this mouse. if only it were just like 1/20 smaller it would be perfect for my hand.

Which base are you at for tech school and what's your AFSC? I separated from the Air Force a couple of years ago.

GPU_Guru submitter 1 Build 1 point 42 months ago

Was Keesler, 3D0X3

I also went to Keesler. 2P0X1. Absolutely hated that place. Not only was it hot as hell but I was there during the BP oil spill.

I'm hoping to join the Air Force too either later this year or early next year. Glad to see we can do stuff like this. :3
