This build is meant to replace my aging 2009 Core i7 920 + AMD 6950 Build.
This build is simple and straight forward, with any special comments as follows:
CPU: Intel 4790K is over clocked to 4.6Ghz with Core Voltage at 1.23 (Adaptive Voltage - wouldn't let me set it any lower, otherwise using manual/constant voltage, It was Prime95 stable at 1.20 at 4.6Ghz). I am not interested in squeezing out every last bit from the CPU, as its pointless (for daily use) and not energy/heat/noise efficient.
Cooler: Its a very nice looking Cooler and I got it for $49.99 after rebate, which is a steal for such a high quality Cooler. I was actually going to buy a cheaper cooler like CM 212 EVO, but its Height was not compatible with The V31 Case which allows max Cooler Height of 155mm. For an under 155mm height Cooler, I don't think there is anything better in Air Coolers out there (specially for $50), not to mention prettier. Temps at the above frequencies aren't as low as I would like, but its my first Devil Canyon build, so no idea if the temps I am getting are below or above par. at the above OC frequencies, the CPU idles around or under 30C and under Prime95 load one of the cores reaches 82-83C while others are at or under 80C. Bear in mind, you need low profile frequency with this Cooler.
Memory: its standard stuff, but lacks XMP profiles, but I am using it at the stock frequencies anyway. I got it at 119.99 and my main goal was to find a decent low profile memory. Its nice looking though (or to be honest, smooth Black plates which go well with everything else).
SSD: Read the reviews, good speed, good price and enterprise level endurance (check and compare yourself if interested).
Graphics Card: Very nice looking card (specially because of the back plate). Runs cool and quite. The official boost clock is 1190Mhz, but it boosts up to 1290, while dropping to 1278/58 under heavier loads at times. I only overclocked it a bit to check, worked file with +100Mhz GPU clock, +250Mhz Mem clock (power target 110% under MSI AfterBurner). But at +100 clock, it actually boosted to 1329Mhz. +200 GPU OC showed artifacts, so would have needed more voltage, which was beyond my interest. BTW, I use a 1080p Samsung UN55F7500 TV as my monitor, but use DSR to downsample games from 1440p-2160p (depending on games), and it works very well and looks very nice. So you can still use 980Ti Power on 1080p displays.
Case: Amazing case. Fully Modular, and very easy to work with. I actually shifted the SSD to the back plate (not pictured) and installed 3 Hard Drives in the Front Cage. A bit too much cabling to fit at the back, but I managed. Looks just as clean from the front though.
PSU: Gold rated. Good Price (74 Dollars After Rebate), just right for a Single GPU Build. Looks good as well.
CM Fan: A bit disappointed as its lowest frequency is around 1400RPM, which makes it the loudest companent in the system, though thats not to say its LOUD if you manually restrict it to 1400RPM in the BIOS and sit a few feet away from the PC (like I do). Otherwise the BIOS ramps up the fan towards 2000RPM, where its way too Loud for no reason (system is not that hot). The pre-installed case fans are very quiet and run under 1000RPM.
Enjoying lots a good games on this system, and pleased with it overall. BTW, bought everything on NCIX and used their premium PC Assembly Service, which I would recommend anyone who lacks the time or skill to build their own system. I lack a bit of both now, but did tweak a lot of stuff due to my adding drives and having to add/redo cables.
