At the moment this is my all use pc. I'm going to use it for games and general media use. I intend on building a full gaming rig at a later date for exclusively tat purpose. Then this will become a media pc.

Who says this isn't a gaming rig already.

It's a lower end gaming rig as he states because the 750 ti Limits what things he can do, yes it's a great gfx card for the price, but a 770/970 is what he should upgrade to and it'll be considered a gaming rig, heck even a 270/760 is good.

It plays games well wont lie. Had some issues with the OS but after those were fixed plays much better than my old pc with a small overclock on it.

You listed a deep cool Cpu cooler but your using a zalman cooler!

CyberWraithe666 submitter 1 Build 1 point 52 months ago

Yeah meant to change that I found that cooler after I had saved the list and didn't update it.

Nice build! I have this same case in blue. +1 for AMD!

brelovix 1 point 53 months ago

Not bad. The cable management looks nice Would have gone with a little bit of a better HDD (it's not bad but with paying $10 more or so could have just gone with a more reliable drive). +1

CyberWraithe666 submitter 1 Build 1 point 52 months ago

Thanks. And you are right. The Hard-drive i used was from my old pc, just reformatted it and saved some money. Same with the ram sticks.

For the same price you could have gotten an r9 270 instead of the gtx 750 ti.

CyberWraithe666 submitter 1 Build 1 point 52 months ago

True I just don't know anything about those graphics cards, may go that direction with my next build not sure yet.

nigerianjones 1 point 52 months ago

if you decide to upgrade or make a build anytime soon, the r9 290 has plumetted in price, a windforce is $250.

CyberWraithe666 submitter 1 Build 1 point 52 months ago

I was looking at that. I may do that in the future sometime.

Cables turned out nice and clean +1

More of a parts rationale would be helpful here. Like, are these the actual prices? Why spend $135 on the motherboard and $80 on a 550W PSU? Things like that would be nice to know.

I really like that Zalman cooler though, such a cinch to install.

CyberWraithe666 submitter 1 Build 1 point 52 months ago

The power supply was actually free, a buddy of mine had some new in box and I got it off of him. They were the prices I paid for for the most part. The hard drive, ram, OS, and power supply were free. I already had those.

Personally I would of gone with the r7 265 instead of the 750 ti, but I guess it was because you wanted to keep your green theme.

CyberWraithe666 submitter 1 Build 1 point 52 months ago

I was trying to go with the same theme. Not that it really matters you can't see in the case anyway, and I don't know much at all about the radeon graphics cards.

How is the case? I plan on getting the red version. Is this a monstrous size? Is dust being any type of problem? Airflow good? Any part of it that feels cheap? Lastly, how are the LEDs? Too bright, not bright enough?

CyberWraithe666 submitter 1 Build 1 point 47 months ago

The case is pretty good I don't really have any complaints on it. Its not too huge I don't think I personally prefer lagers cases. The airflow is pretty good and you can always change the fan direction if you need to. The dust isn't a problem because of the dust filters the only issue that I have is that you can't slide out the dust filter on the front without removing the entire front panel. The only part on it that I would say felt cheap at all is the bay covers but it isn't a huge concern of mine. I like the LED brightness and I don't think that they were too bright for where I have my case its perfect as far as that goes. Now I bought this case as a temporary solution cause I do plan on watercooling it in the future but for the price it is definitely a good case.

knarmor 1 point 45 months ago

I just a built a rig last summer and got a mid-ATX. The only problem with that for me was that I had to mount the water cooling radiator fans on the outside of the case. Not a big deal, but whatever.

Anyway, I was thinking of upgrading to this case for a couple other reasons, but mainly to get the cooling fans on the inside. However, your comment above made it seem like you couldn't fit in the radiator with inside the case for some reason. Could you explain why you'd get a different case to install a water cooling system?

The CPU seems overkill for the GPU. Maybe better with a slightly lower CPU but adding a SSD to improve the booting and loading time.

CyberWraithe666 submitter 1 Build 1 point 52 months ago

You aren't wrong I went with a stronger CPU than I really needed in case I decide to go with a better GPU in the future, and it wasn't that expensive and still fit my budget fairly well. I'd like to add a SSD in the future maybe after I finish my next build. But for the moment while slower its fine, until I get sick of it and just upgrade it.
