I use this build to game, primarily on Battlefield 4, Titanfall, DayZ, CSGO, and quite a few other demanding games. It's amazing, runs cool (due to the 8 fans in the case), and isn't too loud.

Are you using an SP120 for the fan? Static Pressure fans are favorable for pushing air through radiators and keeping the temps down. (I myself used AF120s because at the time they were the only ones from Corsair that had purple LEDs and my case is full of them xD)

Either way, it looks great!

You look happy! Enjoy the beast.

Not gonna lie, I may switch my mobo out for yours because of how cool that looks.

Mine's almost identical to yours at the moment except fans and peripherals.

Those red fans looks orange?

gigagoku12 1 Build 1 point 47 months ago

Nobody has mentioned the motherboard on the ASD bag, so I guess I will

That isn't a crisis though

+1 for the Air 540, that case is a joy to work in.

Why do 90% of the builds I'm looking at use the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO?

hanser19 1 Build 3 points 47 months ago

because its cheap, inexpensive, and it provides for a really good cooling solution on many CPUs.

TheMaxS 1 point 47 months ago

Is there any benefit for the Twin Frozr V over the STRIX 970? I can't decide which to get for my soon-to-be build.

How is the cooler master hyper 12 evo? I am thinking of getting one for my build.

Exowar 1 point 43 months ago

Cracking build almost exactly like mine however i used different mobo and ssd. However my question is are those fans you bought 4 pin or 3 pin connectors?

Is the 970 having any problems yet
