Description

Computer has been done for a month or so now, just haven't gotten around to posting pictures and specs. Was looking for an upgrade to my dell XPS 3000 that I got around 09. Only thing I replaced on it was the PSU and GPU about 2 1/2 years ago. The idea behind my build was looks and gaming. Tried to keep to a white and blue color scheme. Did a fair amount of research and lots of switching parts on the site before I committed to this final build.

CPU: Was tempted by the 5820k but decided against mainly due to budget concerns (see GPU choice)

CPU COOLER: Went back and forth between going All-in-one cooler and traditional air. Originally was planning to get the kraken x61 but sided with the NH-D15 when I found out it does just as good as a job while remaining cheaper and easier to install. Plus it's fairly quiet.

MOTHER BOARD: Honestly I picked this one because it looked really nice and it had some decent reviews.

RAM: Decent reviews and pricing on the HyperX ram.

GPU: Went with the Titan X mainly because I wanted to rune the ultra wide resolution using only one GPU. Again there were only rumors of 980ti by the time I bought this card.

CASE: Original plan was the H440 but then saw that the Noctis went with it strictly due to looks.

Slight colour scheme discrepancy, but it's a very good build.

That Noctua cooler looks surprising nice though.

don't get me wrong. more power to you, but a titan x to drive a 1080p ultrawide? isn't that a bit overkill? nonetheless, its a great looking build. i'm looking to upgrade to ultrawide too. looks nice.

You might have saved $20-30 on the cooler but damn is that thing big and bulky in comparison!

Crazy money bro but nice build. I would recommend you flip your back fan to exhaust.

Nice build! Although the NHD15 kinda ruins the look of the build, unless you turn off the lights, looks surprisingly nice without the lights.

+1

How do you like your OCZ Vector 180? It benchmarks crazy well. I have one coming in the mail to replace my 840 EVO I had issues with.

Wouldn't the Razer edition of the H440 suited a little more? Not knocking on the build because it's great I'm just wondering what made you chose the Noctis over the Razer H440?:)

I think the blue h440 would've went better as the only green thing in this build is the geforce logo lmao

It's the peripherals too! :)

true, didn't really pay attention to the razer stuff.

actual computer: blue

peripherals: green

OP needs to make up their mind lol

haha. Pretty sick build none the less.

The Razer case would look great and be a tad quieter too due to the H440 being a Hush series case.

Well the Noctis is the h440, just with a bigger shroud. Literally the exact same internals.

the monitor he has is an ultrawide, so it is basically a 1440p monitor

Thanks for the chart! I have been looking at the difference, and people said it was closer to 1440, but i see now
