Description

Gotta work on making it a little neater on the inside. I am likely gonna add another SSD, my steam library took a little more than I thought.

Little noisy when taking a load, going to get quieter fans for it later. But overall handles games like a champ.

Overall nice build! There are a lot of good fans, and a fan controller helps. Use max RPMs on the fans only when you need them. Cables could be a bit neater, but I am OCD! Post more photos, especially the process of the build if you have any. I always like to see the evolution.

Sadly I have no other photos, but yeah I want to clean it up a bit inside. I actually built this a few months ago, just finally got around to getting the post and build up on here. I haven't touched the cables yet, but I may consider a new case like the Core X9.

Now way your cpu temps are right. Nice build bro but this thing must be a true space heater.

I used Speccy for the temps, it does get warm sometimes, but only when its really taking a load like with the BOINC POGS:Skynet program. But other than when doing that, it is blowing cool air the whole time. 2 fans in the front for intake and 1 more just past that, 1 on the bottom for intake, 1 exhaust fan in the back, and the two for the liquid cooler on the top. Not shown but there is a fan intake right behind the CPU on the other side of the board.

How well were your CPU and HDD packaged by SuperBiiz and NCIX? They have a horrible ratings on ScamAdviser.

I ask this not only because I'm working on my own build and they do have tempting prices, but because I work as a UPS package handler and I know how roughly most packages are treated, like how some employees pretend to be ninjas and throw envelops. I try to avoid online shopping...one time, my laptop RAM came to my house and the package had a footprint on it - still survived, thanks to NewEgg. Since it went through my building, I know exactly who did it mwuahaha.

I actually built this a few months back, and I didn't go by most of the companies on this list, most of my stuff came from Newegg, supersaver and all those benefits and prices. I got the CPU from newegg, the HDD I believe I got from newegg as well. But the HDD came in this really nice... not sure how to describe it, but it was more than protected for shipping. Could have dropped it off the Empire State building and it would have survived.

I agree, I need to. Built this a few months back and am thinking of a new case, Core X9 maybe. But I know I need to work on those cables.

both cpu and gpu alone would take around 500 watts and you always want extra

about 300 extra after the water cooler and the ssd he has to power and the led case fans my led case fan takes up to 10 watts and he has 4 so that 140 more watts out of the 1000 watts plus the psu is cooler running way below the max watt rate m8

For two reasons, 1 when I upgrade or decide to do another build I will know I have the power to add without replacing the PSU. 2, I am glad I did since the case didn't have a PSU exhaust port that would allow the fan to blow out, so being overpowered the PSU doesn't need to fan up, I have pretty much never noticed the PSU's fan turn except once. So no exta heat from it in the case or blowing on my GPU.

i said it can keyword "somethings" better like streaming and video rendering and about the same in gaming now if you are doing CAD work or something that hyper threading is needed the i7 will do better but the amd is cheaper and faster

Not sure really, first build and a couple people I know really like AMD. My next build I will go Intel for sure. Just to do something different.
