Description

I wanted to make something that would look decent / have great performance and also have great performance per watt, so here is my Build TUA or "The UnderAppreciated" (SP I know :P).

You can check out the full guide here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcfUxgrHXc4 , some of the parts are different (mainly the Enermax iVecktor and the B85 Pro Gamer), though what is in the cart is around the best value for the buck in the US atm.

How is the processor. I'm thinking of getting it over the i5-4690?

Why select a B85 Chipset MOBO? Not that familiar with Xeon cpus. If you have a link that might get into some of the specifics that would be great. Thanks

Yeah, I also have this particular CPU, I mostly work on things such as insdesign and vegas pro. Working with two 1080p monitors, and on heavy work load.

I have the H60 cooler and it works just fine, not having it is still perfect though.

IDLE: 24 c LOAD (3.7 Ghz): 45-50 c

I guess itll be a 5-10 degrees hotter without it as the H60 is a very basic CLC
