Description

I use this machine for work, as well as gaming.

For work I run programs such as 3DS Max, Visual Studios etc and I have absolutely no problem with it keeping up.

Rendering high quality does take time, but regardless its got the power.

For gaming, I run everything at highest and optimized with NVIDIA optimizer.

Games such as Crisis, League of Legends at 250fps idle, 230fps in team battles and much more!

Its a beast, should be for it's price point.

The wiring is horrible in the display, I'm waiting for new roped Corsair wiring.. in due time.

All items were purchased at Canada's Computers.

I did not overclock, but still wanted liquid cooled because I wanted to ensure my processor was taken care of!

NOTE: Shown in the parts picture is a corsair h110, she didn't fit in the case so I put a Corsair h80.

$3000 build with no SSD, eh?

Good. I'm not alone in thinking that. I expected at least a 180GB SSD.

Eventually, I don't feel it needs SSD realistically, it's boot time is quick enough and I can wait for pricing to come down.

I dont see any other benefit to SSD aside from boot times :/

Nice build! I have the same case. I'm absolutely in love with it!

How quiet does your system stay with those fans and that cooler?

  • 71 months ago

It really depends, it's almost silent on quiet mode (via corsair program) but if i user performance or balance she has a nice hum! the sound of power! haha

The hum is quite nice when you want it!

I can't wait to get my next build put inside of it when I finally save up enough for all of it.

haha, well typically I have my headset on, so it's not always noticeable when shes chugging away. :)

I would go with Noctua's, but I'm an aesthetics man.

You're right, spell check doesn't help with implementing names such as these, though... :/

+1 from me. I like it. The only thing I could give as "criticism" would be to touch up the cable management just a bit. Although that's just IMO as I'm big on presentation.

I know what you mean.. -_-

Eventually though, just waiting to buy some better cable.. as for now I'm just not (trying) to worry about it too much!

Though, it does drive me crazy.. haha

RAM. Why not go for 1866 Mhz??

  • 71 months ago
  • 1 point

Eventually. I didn't want to get everything best in slot right away, then I would have nothing left to play with!

But i know what you mean, regardless with what this build hasn't it doesn't seem to be lacking in any divisions..

You have a preference of brand of 1866 mhz?

Why does the part list say h80i but you have a h110 in the picture of ur parts

  • 71 months ago
  • 1 point

I had to part-swap out the h110 with a h80, the h110 didn't fit with my motherboard unless I put it outside of the box, ugly.

How is that monitor for gaming?

  • 70 months ago

For the price point, it's been pretty great, I can't complain!

oh boy id go nuts with that budget! 2x ssd raid 0, 1tb storage, full WC loop in dual sli 970s... maybe even tri sli! and oc the cpu 0.5 ghz it wont hurt.. its fun.. i love hoe my adobe cc suite opens things like PS and AI in about a second... havent been able to time it! like the dual screens.. id like to try that some day maybe even 3!

  • 62 months ago

lol So basically, we'd have some sweet cards and SSD's.. But nothing else!

I'd like to see a budget build with two 970s, ssd etc and see what other parts you'd use..

He is possibly going to consider getting a 6 core eventually, or at least one can assume. I'm about to do the same in a few months so I can't judge.

It just depends on financial situation/how you want to buy I suppose.

He can also upgrade to 64GB of memory with socket 2011, should he choose to.

1) They are cheaper; 2) You won't see a difference with a 6-core CPU now; and, 3) You won't see a difference with a 6-core CPU for years.
