Description

Just as a note, prices on pcpartpicker are not accurate representations of what I paid. Total I spent about $1600, not whatever ridiculous number they came up with. I used Newegg and Microcenter for the parts!

This system scored 7.9 across the board except the CPU, which for some reason I'm having trouble overclocking right now.

What do you guys think?

Will update in a bit with complete battlestation pics.

You spent more than $1600 on this computer. The moniters alone are $900.00 on Sell.

I'm thinking the same thing. The CPU, mobo and graphics card alone make up half of his claimed budget, and I haven't seen any major sales (i.e., 30%+ off) on any of them.

What? First of all I already had a lot of the parts (including the monitors) and I sold some stuff from my old build. And those two monitors are $300 new... 900 isn't even close.

Great cable management. You obviously spent a lot of effort cleaning it up. I love your GPU and CPU choices. Most of the other things, if you were being conscious of saving money, could change and see no performance change. You would probably be hard put to find pieces that will give you the same overall look. With the sabertooth and your CPU cooler, there is no reason you can't be overclocked to 4.5ghz...There is a large thread from the overclocker message boards, take a look into it, you may find some people to help you.

How's the H60 work, I'm not over-clocking but can it keep a full load to manageable/satisfactory temperatures.

Let me know if you get it rates at 7.9. I got mine to 7.7 at 4.4 ghz.

With what I already had plus money I got from selling old stuff that's the amount I spent.

Those are crazy expensive (and unnecessary) parts.

CPU cooler: H100 at the least for liquid cooling (custom is best). Otherwise, just go air.

Mobo: CRAZY overpriced. Not necessary, either.

Memory: Why? 2133 memory isn't even all that much faster! Anything over 1600 and it's just wasted money.

HDD: Are you doing media work? Otherwise, this is overkill.

GPU: Nice choice

PSU: OVERKILL. You'd need 750W MAX for that build. Why Cougar? I would have gone Seasonic, Cougar, or PC Power and Cooling.

Overall, there is literally NO WAY you did this for $1600. In your "custom" section, you have a 640 2GB (which I don't think exists) listed. I'm not sure what this build is, actually... it's overpriced. However, looking at it from a quality standpoint, it's a fairly nice build.
