Description

I use this build for playing games, mostly battlefield 4, and for all my engineering school work. Runs on ultra setting between 90 and 120 frames. Currently overclocked to 4.2, and running cooler than with stock setting. The 3770K crushes everything in its path, this CPU is overpowered for everything except the Dragon's teeth DLC. . Should have gone with lower voltage RAM, can't overclock this RAM because I can only push it to 1.5volts. The CPU cooler is effective and super quiet. I love the case. It is so easy to work with, runs very cool, and doesn't look flashy or silly. SSD is great, especially with the ASRock Extreme 4 board. Cold boot time is about 6 seconds. Be careful with blu-ray players, they don't always come with software, which can cost a pretty penny.

Nice build! First build that I can recall from here seeing two different cards SLIed

That cooler is massive! haha +1

How does it even fit...

Yes, it fits, barely. Don't know if it would in a smaller case though. It is probably a mm from the case.

I'm pretty sure you cant SLI 2 different cards? Only AMD allows you do this from what I remembered. To SLI you need the exact same company ram clock and brand to be the same. But I could be wrong since I don't own them :)

If you SLI two different cards, the you'll only get the clock/ram speed of the lower performing card. As long as the cards are the same model, you can do it.

This is what I'm seeing. Both are factory overclocked, so they both run at the lower clock speed. So, the Galaxy card is running a hair slower, as its the faster card.

Great, well balanced build. Be sure to upload some more pics!

Also, that heatsink looks awesome!

Cool build. They have me wondering, what does an SLI bridge do exactly?

Basically, because I'm not a computer engineer, the Sli bridge increases the bandwidth between cards, so they can work together better.

Battlefield would run better on AMD Cards. i would have gotten AMD Cards but other than that Nice Build!

This may be true, but at the time of purchasing, the Nvidia GTX 670 had the best BF3 benchmarks for the price.They frequently beat the 7970.

and untested, so who knows if it will actually show any improvement.

untested so are u saying amd does not test it

AMD did test it. And I'm sure it's going to be a big improvement. Not add 50 frames good but it will be noticeable, in a good way.

I didn't think I would have to explain untested. If you think im saying amd or any company doesn't test the software or hardware before they are released then well... wow. all I was saying is that besides AMD no one has seen this and its all hype, it might add 30fps or it could add 2fps. my point is no one knows.

The reason why the sli dosne't work is because you have to different cards and no sli bridge
