Finally finished school on January 2014 (Network Security) and I found a very good job. To reward myself I built this beast. It took around 6 month to get this. It is not entirely finished as I am aiming on another Gtx 970 or maybe a Gtx 980 TI. That is my 7th built.
This built was made to run the Asus Swift screen that was going to be release in late September 2014. I am using the machine only for gaming.
I7 4770k, why? why not! A bit overpower for my need but who care. I am still a bit disappointed on how poor my chip is even with a lot of cooling and the H110, I can't manage to go highter than 4.4 ghz. The sad thing is about one month later they released 4790k...
EVGA 1300w was and still is a very good psu for the price. I paid 220$ CDN at the time. A bit overpower once again but you never have enough power! Very happy with the purchase. This thing is big and heavy it feels very solid.
Samsung evo 840 750Gb has very nice speed and more cache than the 512 Gb version which is nice. Rapid is nice and it definitely make a difference.
Corsair 780t case is awesome I really love it except I can't turn down the lights. It fits my color scheme perfectly, black and red. It is a bit more flimsy than I would like it to be.
One thing that surprised me was the Asus ROG Gladius mouse this thing rock and it feels awesome, I really love the mouse. the 2k Hz polling rate is more a marketing trap as I dont think anyone can see the difference but being able to change the switch is awesome..
Sadly I don't like my Gtx 970, I am not lucky my card can't OC much even at 1250 MHZ sometimes it freeze, now I run it stock. I am tempted to sell it to buy the Gtx 980 ti but it is 900$ in Canada...
I wanted really good sound and the Audioengine A5+ gives me what I wanted A+ product. Sound is very good but I would like a little more bass which is easily fixable with a sub.
Now the Screen, this thing rock, I mean the quality for a TN panel is just astonishing. G-sync is a gamer dream no V-sync needed and even at low FPS everything is smooth.
My computer run the the screen fine but it could do a lot better with an additional 970 or an 980 TI.
