Description

The title says it all. Everything that you see in the list that is priced at 0$, I got them all brand new at no cost from a contact. I got extremely lucky because it gave way for the better graphics card and they are good quality parts as well. Building was easy, but it was my first time so I made a couple of noob errors. Took me about 3.5 hours to complete the build, with the cable management taking the the longest time. I tried and I think I did a decent job with that.

Also note the RAM is not the same one listed, they did not have it as an option but it is 8GB of kingston hyperx.

Leave any feedback or advice in the comments, it is appreciated.

I despise you with the passion of a thousand suns. That is, unless you send that GPU my way :P

Great build, might not have thrown 4 Dimms in there, but I suppose it works. Make sure all your intakes are filtered (especially the PSU and bottom fan), otherwise you'll have one hell of a dust bunny in the 7970. dx.com sells really cheap filters and shipping is free, but black panty hose works in a pinch.

I'd recommend the Medialink router, because we all know D-Link, Linksys, etc. all suck. It's a bit pricey at ~$50, but it's definitely much more stable, doesn't have such low speed cap, easier to use, etc.

i already had a belkin n600 router so i bought the dlink adapter because my computer is on the third floor of my house. I still get four bars and the speed is considerably faster than it was on my laptop, but thanks for the suggestion!

Im sorry I find it hard to believe that you were able to get 4.2 ghz with an air cooler at 35 degress C. Did you run the test while you were in sleep mode?

Ok i hust got home and checked hw monitor and youre right, it now averages 38 degrees on idle an 50-55 under load but when i first chcked it was at 35. Its just 3 degrees above xD but its still pretty cool IMO

  • 75 months ago

yeah that sounds much better! with an air cooler that is actually pretty cool. that's around what mine is at at 4.0 ghz.
