Description

Actually this is a gaming rig and at the same time flight simulator for our son. I dont know what else to say about it. All items are bought in Philippines and will be a bit expensive compare to the US price. I just added all the parts which are available here in pcpartpicker. Sorry for the not so clear pictures since all the photos where taken using either a mobile or tablet only.

Thank you for looking at it.

So does your son want to be a pilot? May I recommend this thermal compound: http://www.arcticsilver.com/as5.htm Arctic Silver 5

May I also ask why you did not let him do the research and build it as it is a good learning experience?

Yes he goes to flying school and this is his last year in school and hopefully will finish his flying hours soon. With regards to the research and build experience, we bulit this rig together and taught them whatever I can teach them about the PC parts. Also answered all the questions and doubts with regards to this built. Thanks for the recommendation of the thermal paste.

Dont worry if you didn't have this kind of dad that you though of me, I believe you can be that dad in the future for your kids.

Just awesome, can you adopt me ??? pretty good build and what a good son, hope he deserves your effort to give him such a nice rig. Congrats for him and the space for the rig looks cool also. :D :D

Thanks for your nice comment, he does deserve this gift for being such a good and respectful son. The space is just temporary since we are still trying to fix his room and still looking for a compact table and gaming chair for him to use.

i kept thinking that green led on the gpu really threw off the color scheme then i saw the last picture. people will likely tell you to flip the psu to intake from the bottom. other than that it looks nice.

I believe that you do know that the LED on that zotac GPU is an indicator on the load status of the GPU. Green means idle GPU and the red means loaded. On the other note about the PSU orientation, i know that hot air is lighter than cold air so it easily rises and goes up to the rad but I just want to experiment something with regards to the dust and the negative air pressure.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your comment.

actually i didn't know about the led color change. that seems kinda annoying, if you were going for a unified color scheme. good luck on the experiment.

This really is a lovely PC. Your cables are magnificently managed, and those parts should keep you and your son extremely happy for at least the next 5 years. I'm glad you went to the trouble of helping your son get something decent. My parents gave me $400 and told me to go f--- myself. Anyway...

Thank you very much for the kind words. It's really glad to see how my work goes specially in terms of cable management. Don't worry just save the 400$ you have now and then try to save some more and who knows you might be able to built your next gaming rig in 3 months or less.

Thanks for the comment, actually the setup you saw on this one are temporary only since this was a surprised christmas gift to our son and no table are ready for the system.

And how come you bought an H97 with a liquid cooler for a CPU you can no longer overclock because of the H97? Nice build though!

Dont you know that even the B85 can do OC? The processor on this one is running at 4.4ghz at 1.229v with no issue and 100% stable. Regarding the OC capability on non-z board, there was a loophole with regards to the microcode of intel processor and chipset that the manufacturers have exploited. Until now those loophole are still active and intel never released any patch on that one. I was able to push it at 4.6 without any issue but decided to kept it at 4.4 since there is no need for that 4.6 which is negligible in terms of real life performance.

Oh **** I thought that was patched way back. Thanks for the info.

Dynaquest, easypc and questlogic technology. Those are the stores where I get all my pc parts since they are the cheapest seller I know in Philippines even when you compare from other stores in Gilmore.

Why H97 with an unlocked CPU? If you don't want to overclock, then saving a bit more by getting an i5-4460 would be much better.

Otherwise, great build!

Actually the system is overclocked to 4.4GHZ with 1.229V and I am not sure if you know that H97 and even the B85 chipset can OC your K processor. Even the H97 can support your next gen processor which is the broadwell. Manufacturers found a loophole on those chipset which gave them the possibility to do OC. Everything is stable as of now and from the day one, stress test using prime for 24 hours and intelburn test to highest settings up to 50 cycles without any BSOD or hanging issue. The GPU is all in stock settings since I believe this model of Zotac is already high in settings and any OC'ing will only do very little improvement on it.

Thanks for you comment.

Oh wait, so you can actually OC a i5-4690K/i7-4790K on non-Z type chipset motherboards. I thought that feature was only enabled when you throw in a Pentium G3258, the barebones dual core but overclockable chip aimed for low-budget enthusiasts. Wew, thanks for knowing me that. Next time, I'll look deeper into my Google searches. And also look out for the counter at the right showing the clock speed and stuff of the CPU. :P

But do keep in mind that if you want to go SLI later on, you can't since it's simply not available in any H-series chipset motherboard, so that's when you need Z97 for that...

And BTW, I'm also from daPilipins bruh... :D

As I mentioned, both B85 and H97 chipset can OC any K-processor because of the loophole that was exploited by Manufacturers. You are right that only Z97 chipset are the one that can OC before. At least with this H97 I got, the need for an enthusiast class board with Z97 chipset is not necessary since most of the OC'er are only changing their voltage and multiplier which is enough to reach the 4.4Ghz. Actually I did up to 4.6Ghz with this board without any problem but the need to run the PC at that rate is unnecessary since this will incur extra expense on my electricity hehehe. In terms of building gaming RIGS, this is not my first time to build but first time for my eldest Son since I believe they are ready to have their own PC.

Kumusta po ulit kabayan at maraming salamat po.

The tough solar gshock is also part of the christmas gift together with the rig. Thanks.
