Description

This was my first ever PC build os i was very cautious about everything but overall im happy how it turned out. the cable management area needs alot of work i know but as for the actual area with components in it i think i did okay. im really just very happy with my build and just wanted to show it off even if it very typical as of lately. i do still need to get my SSD and cooler but for now im not overclocking so i don't really need the cooler and im just waiting for the money to get the SSD.

Pretty good build you've done there. The cable management is fine BTW.

An SSD and cooler are never a waste of money. Not exactly a necessary addition, but not a waste. The cooler (especially a great $30 cooler like the Hyper 212) will increase the longevity of your CPU. The SSD is more of a luxury, but it will dramatically speed up boot times and load times of any software installed on it.

I did not expect this build to need a 750 watt power supply but if you are overclocking it may be needed.

yea i wouldve went for the 600 watt but i might throw in another GPU in the future and just like you said with some overclocking it will give a bit of headroom

How was the length for the cable for your CPU and optical drive in this case?

Very nice build. How much can you overclock the i5? I have to say though, you are very lucky to get that 280x for 305 dollars! Those dang litecoin miners :P

You can usually expect anywhere between 4.4-4.8GHz max OC with Haswell. Well, if you have a liquid cooler. With an air job, you'll generally be able to manage 4.1-4.3GHz whilst keeping your temps below the mid 70s.

Is the r9 280x good?

Yeah, its like a 7970 with higher clock. Its almost the same as the 780.

yea i am really liking it so far. the direct CU2 cooler on the asus card is really good, its quiet under load and stays plenty cool for me.
