Description

This is my first build. I wanted something to game on with room to grow and expand. I pretty much only play Eve Online at the moment and this rig can handle that on max settings with out breaking a sweat.

The build went great with no problems at all. Even things like the H100i install which I thought would be hard went smoothly. Now i'm just learning how I can extract as much power from the rig by tweaking the settings, which is all new to me. This is the first time I've overclocked a PC. Thanks YouTube for showing me how :)

The reason I only used a 128Gb SSD is because I already have 2 x 2TB Samsung Story external hard drives for media storage but I do plan on getting a second SSD and probably another GTX 760 to SLI the rig in the future.

So far I'm very happy with this build. I need to get some nicer looking cable extensions to tidy up the inside a bit but other than that I'd tried to keep it as tidy as I could.

The only other thing I want to purchase for this build is the ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro keyboard when it's released in October.

3D 11 Mark score - P8547 3D Mark Ice Storm score - 182758 3D Mark Cloud Gate score - 19156 3D Mark Fire Strike score - 5799 PC Mark 7 score - 7260

Added some more benchmark results which are pictured - Unigine Valley Benchmark 1.0 Xtrem HD score 1694

Windows Experience Score 8.1

I have no idea if these scores are any good because I have nothing to compare them to so feel free to let me know in the comments.

Also you should all try Eve Online if you haven't because it's amazing and you won't regret it! For a free 21 day trail of Eve Online go to this link. Then I can see you in space and blow you up :)

I always wanted to play EVE online, but one day when I was web surfing I came across an article for " Worst MMO Scams" and it just so happened that EVE won 1st place. I mean I bet its tons of fun, but if I was one of those victims I would have been furious. Other than that you have yourself a beast setup +1

Yes Eve does have scams. But the first rule of Eve is trust no one lol. You should try the trial. It's not like you can get scammed out of real money, just in game stuff. Basically anything in a trade hub system written in local is a scam. As in real life anything that looks to good to be true is also probably a scam. But the pvp is the best in any game I've played. I've been playing over a year now and wish I'd started in 2003.

I like seeing more people using the HAF series from Cooler Master, Especially the X and XM, best cases IMO :D Very clean build.

I like the contrast of the blue LED fans and the red of the mobo and RAM. That HAF X is a beast of a case. +1

Great build, though a second 760 would turn this into a beast. Also the case and lights kinda remind me of a ship from eve.

As soon as funds allow I'll get the second GTX 760 :)

Nice and tidy build indeedy. 8-)

I did join EVE in 2004 but quit about 5 years ago. To get the most out of it you have to join a well-organised and active company. It then becomes a big time sink not leaving enough for other fun games. Just MHO of course. I do like any spacy games as much as the next man/women/alien. ;-)

How are your radiator fans setup?

I set them up underneath the rad so they push air on to it and out to the case fans.
