Description

Got done with another build for a friend. Total was about $1800 after tax from Microcenter; there was another slightly different, cheaper, list of parts I gave him but unfortunately someone at the store told him to get the more expensive HDD, PSU, CPU cooler instead, so I'm not too happy about that at all, but whatever.

The actual motherboard pictured is the UD4H. It didn't seem to be in the motherboard list. Also sorry about the low quality picture, it's the only camera I had over there.

Looks great! You're a great friend :D

EDIT: Removed the part about the PSU and Caviar Black drive cause you said it wasn't your decision.

This is FANTASTIC. I like the PSU and CPU cooler actually, but the edit: CAVIAR BLACK HDD is not needed at all if there is an SSD so... Microcenter associates be damned. +1

PSU is really too much, not a big deal. CPU cooler is great :D SSD is so small that you really need another drive, but the caviar blacks are so noisy and overpriced

When I said "not needed at all" I was referring to the Caviar Black quality of it. The PSU being too large can be useful though in case he wants to add another card for SLI.

For SLI I would rather he have gotten a 3820 instead, but it's not like the option is entirely eliminated with a haswell chip. And the Black drive isn't that spectacular, the 7200.14 seagate drives surpass them in value, cheaper price, and performance. Although, before I had a blue drive on the list because it was $50, but unfortunately an uneducated Microcenter employee had to tell him otherwise.

I mean, the parts are good, I just wish I would have gone with him. It's not my friend's fault anyway.

Oh, that makes sense. I agree! Meh, for SLI it would be a pretty tight fit. Those 770s use a lot of power! Really though, it's not a huge deal...again, very nice build!

Hey, If I wanted to run dual 770 gigabyte GPUs, it will fit easily, right?

The motherboard is in PCPP database: Z87X-UD4H.

10/10. Great build. I won't even nit pick it. The system has no flaws and will be fast as hell.

you could have spent about 6 dollars and get a wd veloci raptor which is a 10000rpm 1tb hdd
