Description

More info on my /r/buildapc post.

Pretty much exclusively for gaming and movie watching, might be used for video editing in the future.

Actual final prices and totals are slightly different because discounts, combos, shipping, you know.

Shoutouts and big thanks to the PCPartPicker staff & community, Reddit's /r/buildapc and /r/cablemanagement communities, and to Newegg and Microcenter!

Very nice, I like that for your first build you didn't rush, and actually took the time to do some cable management, kudos to you my friend. :)

Thank you! Originally I was very dumb with the PCI cables for the graphics card and it was such a mess, I ended up with many more cables than I needed. Thankfully /r/buildapc called me out on that.

This is a great build except for the power supply. The power supply was a poor choice compared to the other components. You have a very good CPU/GPU/motherboard. The power supply uses cheaper chinese caps that don't handle temps too well and is based on an older PSU design that is no longer used. It is a great PSU on a budget, but when $600 in components that are connected to the PSU, there are much better quality PSUs that you should have chosen. A seasonic, xfx (made by seasonic), PCPC or corsair hx/ax/tx would have been a much better choice.

Before you ask why I didn't look at the Reddit post, this is what happens to me:

Ouch, Reddit is blocked for you? But how will you survive without your daily dose of cats and resposts!? :(

Which 3 fans did you put on the controller? Also, is it loud with all those fans? +1 on AWESOME cable management!

The two on the front are controlled by the built-in case controller. The rest are all automated by the computer. Sometimes (randomly) the fans can get a little noisy, a good whirring that goes on and off every once in a while. I don't know which ones they are, turning down the case controller fans doesn't really change that. It usually doesn't bother me, I can't say in decibels but it's not bad. That's also probably because there's five of just the case fans in there, plus the one for the CPU cooler and the (virtually irrelevant) two on the GPU. And thank you!! :)

How is the gtx 760=?

It does everything I need it to, though I'm only using one 1080p display and I'm not going crazy with ultra-high graphics or mods. It runs flawlessly on just about all games at high - ultra-high settings. I don't know the exact framerates.

Sorry for the very late response. You probably finished whatever project you may have been asking that for, haha.
