CPU

This cpu is a beast! Already overclocked this thing to 4.2 GHz steady and everything is nice and cool.

Motherboard

Got this motherboard as a combo sale with the i5-4690K from Frys Electronics for $299.99. What a great motherboard and easy to navigate overclocking bios! Nice color with dragon shaped heatsinks.

Why did you choose a 750w psu when you only have a gtx 960 and i5 4690k, are you planning to upgrade in the future.????

awesome to see the h80i gt fit in this case, i bought the same hydro and case, but was worried since memory express didn't list it as compatible on their site (this was before i met PCPicker :P) also how is the 2 way SLI running with those 960's with the RM750? (i have that PSU as well haha)

Soulbrtha1 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 39 months ago

Yes it fits with no problem in the Spec 2 case! The 960's work great with the RM750 with each card using about 160W max. I have them both overclocked as well. Thanks for asking!

killer!, i'm hoping to get a pair of 980s eventually, i wonder if the case could handle both the H80i GT & a water cooled 980 ti sea hawk but that's just me day dreaming haha
