Everything in this build worked flawlessly after the initial build. System is incredibly quiet, only becoming audible during heavy gaming.
>Squints really hard< Why can't my eyes work... >Sigh< I'm glad you have an internal photo but I cannot see it too well, sorry. Kinda blurry but the general idea is there. I would also like to see more photos. Anyways, I'm certain you are enjoying your build.
Yeah sorry about that. I only have a ****** outdated Android phone to take pictures with. It actually is my brothers build but I work on it a fair bit. I will try to get a better photo next time.
Hey, no worries there! And ah! Your brother must love it then. I'll look forward to the update on photos. :)
If the main purpose of this build is gaming, you should of went with an i5 and 8gbs of ram and spent the savings to get a 970.
He says in another comment that it's mostly a video editing rig with some streaming. With that purpose in mind, I call it a well designed build. The R9 270 serves me well for light gaming. I'm even playing the Witcher 3 on medium-high settings 1080p getting between 45-60 frames.
Which is great I agree, at the time of my comment the only thing OP had said was in the description which said heavy gaming
Yep, I totally get it; just wanted to redeem OP a bit.
Hey nice build. I have a quick question. Is the front panel a bit loose from the top right side. I mean is there a small small spacing between where the front panel and top panel merge?
There is a slight overhang on the top panel with a small space between it and the front panel. It is to allow more airflow to the front fans since they are fed off a small strip of ventilation.
Okay thanks for letting me know.
If you are a gamer, (guess from description) you should definately over paid the cpu. Because of budget inequality, GPU is lower quality than general build. Anyway a gpu upgrade is easy since you have a decent infrastructure :)
That is exactly what I told my brother when he had me build the machine. He was more concerned with his content creation abilities though.
more pics please! I really like this build.
Need more pictures
What will the computer be used for?
Video creation mostly. Some 1080p gaming.
It is primarily a productivity machine. It is used for YouTube video creation and a bit of streaming mostly.
THANK YOU! Someone who finally understands how terrible RMs are. You could get a similar XFX or EVGA GS PSU for cheaper and it is much better quality!
Exactly! I'm sick of seeing CX, RM PSUs when you can get a GS for the same price.
