Description

I finally finished my build, i started with a crappy diy pc atx midtower and just upgraded to a corsair 780t tower, as well as adding a nzxt hue+ lightning system which is awesome and just switched out my 212 evo cpu cooler for a noctua nh-d14, (see picture for huge size difference!)

This build is incredible, it runs bf4 on ultra around 70 fps arma 3 on high around 50 fps hitman on high around 60 fps

CSGO at 300 fps!

ran heaven benchmark on ultra averaging 50fps

GTX 1080 soon to come to this build! couldnt be happier, if you want an excellent, game killing build, this is it, the evga 850w p2 psu is also amazing!

sorry for the messy cable management btw, this is my first time building a computer!

and here is an awping montage ive done (this was while the computer was in my previous case and had a hyper 212 evo cpu cooler instead of the noctua

Awesome build dude, and did you custom paint that case? I have not seen that case before, and it looks quite cool.

i actually did not, the corsair 780t comes in the white like i have or black, i think the white looks great

8gb memory. Doesn't seem overkill to me.

i messed up the part list, i slapped in another 8gb when i was putting in the noctua cooler today, you can see the 4 ram sticks in the 3rd picture

No problem! I'm pretty clueless about computers so I'll have to look that up! :)

its a $59.99 easy lighting system that NZXT makes, it comes with a little control module that can be accessed with their NZXT cam app to mess with the lighting, and 4 led strips, theres so many options, its a really good package for 60 bucks!

definitely, just did it as neatly as fast as i could to get it running, but i will go back in and make it neater, i just wanted some slack on the cables, maybe a little too much, i was woried stressing the cables too much and possibly damaging them

Nice build!

If i were u, i would get an corsair liquid cooling. Maybe also some little cable mangement (u can see some good tutorials on the internet)

But for a first time builing a computer, its really nice!

thanks! i actually have a corsair h100i new in box, however i looked at benchmarks and the noctua has either been 5-6c wamer or colder than the h100i in certain situations and runs much quieter so the noctua gets installed for this build!

WELCOME TO SETUP REHAB!!

  1. Get zip ties and tie all the cables together... right now they are dangling all over the place. Try to tie them near the desk's leg for a more minimal look.

  2. Get a cable box to hold all the leftover loose cables / power brick. This will make your setup look much better trust me

  3. Get a headphone hanger that sticks underneath your desk, I recommend the Anchor by Elevation Labs. Stick it under your desk for a really minimal look.

  4. Clean it up: clean up and/or throw away the loose pieces of paper, coke can, water bottle, wierd can shaped thingys, and the things you have behind the keyboard (near monitor) and on the right of your desk.

Post picture and reply when done, trust me it will make a huge difference

Yes, i really do have to do all this, im just lazy, once i get gaming i lose track of time sometimes lol. the cable management under the desk does need some serious tlc haha, believe it or not, all those cables are actually being used, some are just like the razer cables that have extra usb's hanging off them but, i have all the peripherals hooked up, a microphone, monitor, wireless controller adapter for xbox, speaker system, and the computer, its so much lol

Buy a J cable raceway or a Signum rack... You can just throw all your cables on it, will take you 5 seconds and would make it look much more nice. If its a moving cable, at least it will have somewhere to stand on when it is not being used.

Do it its worth the pain and the time

Doesn't matter how they look if you knew anything about fans you would know that noctua makes the best silent fans period. Doesn't matter that they are ugly.

yes i just wanted to get the thing running so i could get playing haha, some day soon ill redo the cables to look cleaner.

i love the hue and firefly, the hue has just as much customization as any chroma product and makes the case look 100x better, i couldnt be happier, easy to install as well. the firefly is nice too, very nice lighting that goes very well with the mouse and keyboard, the pads also very big and has a plastic like surface so its super nice and sensitive, its a little pricey for a mousepad but it works amazingly well!

yes! i actually ran the spectrum wave mode which is actually like the rainbow wave on the blackwidow chroma, thats what that first picture is of, as well as completely custom lighting setups, speed, direction, color etc and theres even an audio mode in beta that will change the lighting depending on audio. if the box had a razer logo on it, it wouldnt fool me haha, the nzxt cam software is also really good,
