Description

First true, computer.

I had a gaming laptop for about a year, and was just underwhelmed by the performance. I wanted some true power, and so far, I'm extremely impressed by the computer. Only have a slight overclock on the CPU, but I have a feeling this is a great chip, just wish I knew more about overclocking. It's still at stock voltage, and running smoothly at 4.2ghz.

do the fans on top pull air into your case or out?

Sorry for the delay, its pulling air in, only 1 exhaust at the rear.

Great build. I'm about to start a very similar build. My main concern is the heat buildup in the case. Have you experienced any cooling issues running SLI and only the one exhaust in the back?

hey looks sweet. just bought my case and looking to put same basic insides in it. without going hard-core any real benefits to SLI'ing two 770's or would i just be blowing cash? sweet red LEDs BTW :)

Yeah the frame rate increases are pretty insane. I've changed my monitor to a korean x-star 1440p PLS one though and the increases in frame rate are very noticeable. Without the SLI it wouldn't be running nearly as smoothly. A lot of people recommend just going one card, but I know a 780ti wouldn't be able to handle the same framerates and it would cost around the the same.

wow ok :). i heard yesterday that i should just get one card cos not all games have need of two, or in fact even support SLI? if i have two cards and a game wont support SLI can i just choose to use one with it? was looking at going twin Gigabyte GTX770s but might go 780s if feeling rich haha. cheers saltynut1!

Yeah you can always go into the nvidia control panel and disable them.
