Very nice, but regarding the pictures...
lmao, you kill me sometimes
I try. :p
A description would be nice. Por favor :D?
First budget to have a custom loop for their CPU and GPU. All lies!
I would have gotten a 4770k and a Hyper 212 ECO/H100i if I were you (which I'm not) instead of spending so much on that custom loop. But hey, that will help you OC so much and give you great performance.
Custom loop looks cooler, plus this is my first AMD build.
I didnt know that pny made ssds
Btw nice rig
It sucks to be honest. It keeps freezing up every once in a while for 30-60 seconds before it resumes like nothing happens.
holy gpu sag
He needs a backplate on that thing
I've seen a few posts about the GPU sag. it was like this with the stock cooler. been through three of them sofar.
you should get a backplate to make it more rigid
It still sagged with the stock backplate.
This is just an idea, but perhaps if you shorten the tubing from the CPU to the video card, it may "pull" the card up a bit more? I can understand if you don't want to break your loop for that though.
I actually tried a shorter piece of tubing, I'm going to paint a brace for it tomorrow and stick it under it.
That would probably be the best thing you could do.
them lead waterblocks sure are heavy lol
ok build, but did you really need to watercool a 770? i think i saw a video of a guy cooling a 770 with a discreet "(fanless) 9800gt cooler, with temps around 30c medium load. its a cool card and water cooling it is just overkill. leave that for titans, 780's, and 690's, along with 7970's, 7990's (is there a water block for the 7990? if so, can someone please link it?)
I did it because this is my first W/C build and I wanted something overkill. That was the whole point of it. Plus it looks awesome and temps are great.
I originally had a MSI 970A-G46 mobo but the stupid thing didn't have an USB 3.0 header (the cheaper one did go figure). ' I haven't begun to overclock it, I finished it then loaded up battlefield 4 and went to town. the temps are amazing (it idles about 20c lower than my old PC, and under load it is about even with my old pc at idle.
The 770 is a BEAST! I'm rocking Battlefield 4 and it's great.
The Watercooling loop is a EK L360 kit with a 120mm triple rad with an EK supreme block. I added in a EK Asus DirectCU II 770 block.
Only problem I need to sort out is the chipset likes to overheat.
Goodluck overclocking on that vrm. It's not the chipset it's your vrm. It's a general reccomendation to get atleast a 990fx board (they all have decent vrms) with an 8320/8350
Some sleeved cables would go nice with the tubing, perhaps bitfenix alchemy blue extension cables?
Those are on my list, however I'm already $200 over what should have been a firm budget. soon though!
Nevermind, just ordered them :D
When they arrive, be sure to show some pics with them installed!
Will do _^
It's so strange to see the parts you chose watercooled...
Why rate the SSD,HDD,and even 8320 poorly? It would be nice if you could explain the ratings
The SSD keeps randomly locking up for 30-60 seconds before it recovers like nothing happened. the HDD and CPU are Middle of the road. hence middle of the road rating.
r u gonna RMA the SSD
Plus the HDD Lost a point because I bought two of the same drives. One turned out to be a WD Green labeled as a Blue the other was a WD Blue (what I wanted.)
ahh did u order from NewEgg?
No, I picked it up from Fry's electronics (which is an hour and a half away). It actually worked out better - the Green is going in my ESXi box.
are all the parts from Frys?
the watercooling parts are from frozencpu.com, GPU and motherboard are from Microcenter, the rest are from Fry's.
I replaced the motherboard with a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 (Revision 4)and added sleeved cables.
All I have to say is... Um, ok?
