Really nice......... for me I would like to see a SSD at some point. It may have currently been a budget killer so maybe in the future. But very well done !!

Thanks! I have an ssd in my computer but this was a friends build. He went from a Walmart 200 dollar laptop to this. He was happy lets just say.

Is there any coil whine while playing games on your GTX 970?

I'm not too sure I did not notice the little I used it but I only had the computer 6 hrs took me 5 to build it and everything. My friend I built it for now has it but I have had many friends get this gpu and have no issues with the cool wine.

I get it when I benchmark my 970 on ungine valley at max settings, but when playing games no. I think its due to high percentage of stress on the card, and would stop if you turn down the graphics or get another card

what ur opinions on the msi gaming 5? (any problems, why you picked it etc.) I dont know which lga1150 mobo to get

The first reason was due to its price. I felt as if it was a nice atx mobo for the price. It also has a nice look in person. The bios are nice with good fan controllers once you get the hang of them and it is easy to oc with. I would recommend this board to anyone, I have had 0 issues so far.

Hey, i have the same case, it came today (motherboard is coming wednesday so ill have my pc built then) could you take a picture of the back of the mobo plate as some of the cables are insanely long (i also have same PSU) and am just wondering how you managed it? also what did you do with the 8-pin CPU connector? im thinking of running it through the back of the mobo cut out...

I will try to get a picture up as soon as possible and the 8pin I ran behind the fans at the top of the case. I thought about tuning it behind the mobo but dident want to just in case I had to remove the power supply.

Why didn't you turn the CPU cooler 90 degrees?

There was a lot of pressure on the tubes when I did and I wanted to let the tubs go with their natural curve to be on the safe side. This was my first time using a liquid cooler, just wanted to play it safe is all.

How does the psu hold up with overclocking? I have the same psu and I am thinking about overclocking.

The system is staying around 350w in that area. So I'm sure if I oc there will be no issues at all.

I meant to say if the psu does any wierd stuff when you oc the card because I heard that the lower end corsair psu's arent the best for overclocking.

Oh alright, I'm not to sure. The cpu is not over clocked yet only the gpu, but with the gpu being oc everything is stable. No random shutdowns or anything like that.

I can agree with you. He does plan on installing an ssd when he save up some more money and I plan to oc it in the future when I know more about oc.

But if he has an i7 now, he can get a higher end gpu 2 years down the road.

Yeah I guess so but the more he spends, the longer it lives

Oh, if you're talking about the 980 then yes it will hold up. I meant for the 2500k and the 4790k.

I thought about it but I was on a strict budget for this build and he wanted an i7, if it was mine I would of put one or 2 980's in it and play 4k.
