Description

Posted up before but without proper pics, so trying this again.

This is a HAF XB Evo build with an i7-4770k and Evga GTX 770 4GB. Temps are nice and low and I am going to start messing with overclocking a bit in the next couple days. The 840 Pro SSD makes boot times super quick, maybe 5-10 second in total from pressing the power button. The monitor is a LED panel I wasn't using, its 3D/1080p/120hz and works pretty nicely mounted on the wall behind my desk. I threw a bluray burner in it for the hell of it...Still need to benchmark and do some serious cable management on my desk but overall happy with the build and performance.

My original budget, minus the monitor, was $1.5k but I went a bit over on the CPU, PSU, and GPU so ending up being ~$1.9k w/o mouse and keyboard. Going to start putting the H100i to work, more to come...

Post it up, loved to see it. The PC itself was around $1.9k.. the total cost up there is my entire setup (PC, TV, mouse, & keyboard)

My build is almost exactly the same http://pcpartpicker.com/b/Fhk Love the case, a little bit of a pain to get cable management the way I liked it. I can see why you put your SSD in that spot. With this set-up I was able to get 4.5OC on the 4770K. Great build man.

This looks great!!

I am almost done building the exact same rig with all the same parts. I got most of my parts on sale here in Canada for the same prices you quote. Looking forward to getting mine going to see how it does.

what do you use for liquid in the water cooler? distilled water? or some sort of brand named coolant?

Overkill. Yes. But nicely done. If this was for video editing I'd say you did good son. If it's for gaming I'd say you could have saved a lot of money.

Why that case? I love your other components but hate that case.

Ignoring the negative people on this site, looks cool man. In the next few months im looking at buying the 4770k. I already have the H110 cooler so im curious to see what clock speeds you can get. I know newegg has some sweet deals on monitors right now, not sure what size you are looking at but they have a couple asus 24's with 1ms for like 180. Anyway, +1 man.

No stated purpose. Looks nice, but so does a 3000$ pile of cash.

The new Mac pro is $3000 of shiny trash bin. Getting back on track now, wut this was $3000? I would expect at least a 780 ti at this price point. You could have saved some $$$$ on the SSD, PSU, GPU, CPU, pretty much everything. It seems like you just went to a store in communist Korea and got raped with retail prices on everything.

I thought the point of building a custom pc was to have better specs for the price than prebuilt systems. You can find a bunch of boutique pc sellers that have this configuration and look better for much less.

I'd tend to agree but at least it has a well defined purpose with components that suit that purpose.

Purpose was to build a PC as my aging Gateway Fx P6831 wasn't cutting it. Decided to do a gaming/photo editing build. Re: the mac.. not a fan of apple products and $3k wasn't the cost of the PC, it includes the $900 tv.... Also, I just bough the parts to get the stuff delivered as soon as possible... could of cut it down maybe 1-2 hundred if i would of shopped around a bit but not too concerned with cost... the PC itself cost maybe $1.9k

TVs do not make for good computer monitors, unless they are 4k.

Only thing i can agree with is the GTX 770 4gb, I7 and 16GB is fine? you don't even know if he does editing or not?

dude said he does photo-editting but based on the TV it's not professional. So yeah, I can crop in paint on an a4 too.
