I use this for gaming and Solidworks. Will be overclocking soon. I'm a noob when it comes to that.
This thing is a great piece of hardware. You should show pictures of the case and the hardware thought. Also with those cards are you going to be running Surround?
I want to run surround as soon as I get more money.
CABLE MANAGEMENT MANGGGG
Is the cooler the h100 or the h110? Because it isnt the h100i.
I fixed it. It's the h110
is the subwoofer and speakers good?
They're not bad for the price. They have pretty good bass in the sub-woofer. I want to get 5.1 in the future.
Beast of a build, wish I could afford it. Also, do you mind adding some more pictures?
Sure will. People have complained about my cable situation. I will have a add more inside shots as soon as that's addressed. For now I added some outside case shots.
2x GTX 680 4GB and 1 1080p monitor. Either get 1440p or more 1080p so less overkill
i suggest getting the asus 144hz 1ms monitor they have out, my end goal is to have 3 of those
This is my goal build, i am currently ordering parts, i have a white thor though, i was just wondering, how difficult was it to mount radiator and where did you mount it
Did you have any trouble getting the h110 to fit properly with the sabertooth board? I'm considering upgrading to liquid cooling, but I'm worried about the rad and fans not clearing the top of the sabertooth board in my thor case. Great looking build, +1
i have the same tower and H110 cooling system, i was building it yesterday ... the H110 radiator holes does not line up against the holes on top of the tower (radiator extends a bit beyond the length of the area in the top of the tower that has designated holes) ... did you have the same problem ? i ended up screwing the radiator to 5 holes that i could, leaving the other 3 holes unscrewed .... i am worried the radiator may fall off ,.... any comment is very appreciated
This is a very good build, but with this budget, I would have gone LGA2011 for the increased pci bandwidth.
Also, before he gets here, I'm going to go ahead and call it that user "AwesomeRecover" shows up and says something along the lines of "Shuld hve goten the msi ligthing erdtion"
I'm pretty sure he's the reason they put that line about being polite right under comments.
I also like to think that it was a little because of my reply to him that the staff agreed with just a little before they put that disclaimer up right here: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/Bl7
I'm sure I had little to nothing to do with it though.
I also posted a thread about him and his actions on the forum.
Those cards are not going to saturate the pci lane on the z77 chipset. Considering that the 680 doesnt saturate a pci 2.0 lane.(8x on a pci 3.0 has the same bandwidth as a 16x on a pci 2.0) He will be ok on th z77 board.
Are you sure? I saw this and figured lga2011 would make a difference. http://i.imgur.com/4sYbB.jpg
