Description

Hello guys.

This is mi third build and want to share it with you. My first build was AMD based, it was my first computer and did not build it. Second computer was build by myself, and old Core i7 950 with a GTX 295, then upgraded to a GTX 480 and finally to a GTX 680.

From that second build I only kept the sound card and the Seagate Barracuda. Everything else (including the case - a Cooler Master Cosmos S) was sold.

For this third build I wanted to go with last Core i7 4th generation and chose the the 4770k, taking advantage of its hyper - threading technology and easier overclocking (giving its unlocked multiplier).

This machine es used for gaming and video/audio editing (the 8 logic cores really help here). That's one of the reasons why I use a big 32'' HDTV monitor, I need to have lots of screen space for editing.

I plan to go with a custom loop to better cool both CPU and GPU and also aesthetics.

I think I managed to get a very clean (modular PSUs rock) and efficient gaming/workstation machine, which will last a long time, I expect.

Feel free to comment and thanks for reading.

Cheers!

+1 for a very clean build and 780ti aka the titan destroyer. If you really want to take advantage of your system, you need more monitors or at least a 2560 horizontal display to put a dent on the gpu. Enjoy your new build and make her purrrrrrr.

I forgot to add I really like the LED-backlit GeForce GTX logo. It looks like something from the Doom ID Software video. AMD please do this to your cards!

Yes, you are completely right, I'm waiting for the new G-Sync monitors, see how they perform and probably buy one. If not, I guess I will go for a multimonitor configuration, which as you said, will put the GPU to the test hehe. Thanks!

Would you use the middle monitor in my multi-monitor setup? http://pcpartpicker.com/b/JCT I'm still getting used to the 21:9 aspect ratio, but its greeeat for movies :)

Seems very interesting. For editing videos, multimonitors are really nice.

im waiting on the same thing, that g-sync has been getting some praise, hopefully they announce some enabled monitors at CES

Hey bro nice build. For your 24 pin connector, did you just take the tape off of the wire that came with the power supply?

Thanks! No, I bought a 24 pin single sleeved extension.

Why reference 780ti? EVGA and Gigabyte have already been selling aftermarket superclocked versions

I am planning to water cool the whole system, so no need to pay extra for the after market cooler. The stock cooler does a good job, though.

Sweet build, that 780ti is in a good home. Any reason why you chose the mobo?

Thanks! Well MSI has been good to me. The mobo has a very clean look and the color scheme is interesting, at least for me. I'm not an extreme overclocker guy, but if I want to do something crazy, the mobo will deliver.
