Description

Built this computer mainly for gaming, browsing, and school work. I bought parts over a period of time, and finally got it finished. My goal was to make a good, solid day-to-day gaming computer, and not spend too much money, but also to get a nice clean black/red theme.

CPU- This CPU is great, it overclocks amazingly, and stays very cool under load. Also for the price it was a great choice for me.

Motherboard- This mobo is awesome, it has so many nice, and convenient features, such as 3 way SLI, M.2, Audio Boost, Killer LAN Ethernet. The bios is great, and the OC genie does great.

GPU- I love this card. the looks, performance, the overclocking ability, and how quiet it is. EVGA always does a freat job in customer service, and packing their items.

PSU- 80+ bronze, semi-modular, no problems with it at all, great build quality, and is very silent. Also great customer service.

CPU Cooler- I love the H100i, it is slim, quiet, and the fans included are decent. One of the things that sold me on this cooler was the RGB LED on the water block.

HDD- Cheap, Solid, Fast, and not too loud. Plan on getting a WD black 1TB, and a 240gb Kingston Fury SSD

RAM- I love the look of this, it went well with my red/black theme, and has good OC ability. Also Kingston has great customer service.

Case- I love this case, it caught my eye the day it came out, and still does. The cable management is GREAT, it looks slick, and is a VERY solid build. Great quality, and comes stock with 3 fans in the front, and 1x 140mm in the back. It is ready for triple radiators, and is perfect for water cooling.

WiFi Card- The Asus N-53, looks good, compact inside the case, and good size antennas, the software is easy to use, and so far has no bugs.

OS- Windows 8 is great, love the interface, and smoothness. Seems to run games better also.

Sound Card- Had this before, might put in at a later time, but not sure.

Mouse- First gaming mouse and I love it, and the company. The first one I got in from amazon had a shipping breakage, and I contacted Anker, and they sent me a new mouse, and trusted me to send them my damaged one. The software is easy to use, and the LEDs are great. Responsive, and solid.

Mouse Pad- Nice, big, and does not slip on my wooden desk. Great material.

Speakers- If I could rate these out of 5 stars I would give them 6, these speakers are AMAZING, the bass is clear, and strong, and the treble is balanced perfectly.

I will be adding more completed pictures, and H100i pictures soon.

I really like this build, +1, I would've spent less on the CPU cooler, prob a 212 EVO and get a lower wattage PSU since 750 is way too much for a 760, and use all that money I saved to get a 970. Anyway, awesome build

AMD sometimes is better for overclocking. If you plan on overclocking, go AMD. If you plan on staying stock go Intel.

I'm not an expert so I may be wrong.

do u mean AMD GPus are better overclockers? Honestly u can't really compare the two brands in such a category cuz each individual card overclocks differently as well as each brand of each card. But I will tell u one thing, the 970/980 are two of the best overclockers right now. The 980 is unarguably the best single card in the market right now, and is crazy good at overclocking, the 970 is a close second :)

Good looking build. Seems like a nice blend of budget, performance and aesthetics.

Any issues with the 4690K? I am considering it for a build here in the near future. Does it run warm? how does well did yours OC? I have not had an opportunity to read up on it and see if it has any known issues.

I just built a system with the 4790K and had some initial problems with it running hot and had to change some setting to get it to run at acceptable temps with the H100i. Still going at the 4.0 and 4.4 boost but I had to pull the voltage back to get it to run like I wanted it to.

The 4690k on stock cooler gets about 27C on idle, and 55-60c under load. With th h100i the lowest idle I have gotten was 24c, and highest load was 50c, this is OC at 4.0, and they are good to 5.0 if you get a good one. I will be overclocking mine tomorrow, my goal is 4.5 stable.

Did you see a video from Taiga Fukuyama by any chance? cause he has pretty much the same build.

Built this computer mainly for gaming, browsing, and school work.

I would have spent less on the motherboard and CPU cooler and more on the GPU, though doing so may have ruined the "black/red theme" and made it louder.

Since the GTX 760 was $200, I'm guessing you bought it recently?
