Description

Like how it came out it was pretty easy putting it all together except for the radiator.... had a few minor problems plugging in the fan cables and cpu connector because the radiator was in the way.

Also ram is being read 1333mhz and cant figure out how to get it to read 1600mhz last time i switched it. it gave me a severe error in the bios.

I like how it has came out so far everything else was a breeze to install.

Uses of the computer : Video Editing Gaming on Ultra :P

Takes 2 minutes to render a 5 min video thats 1080p

Plan to OC one day,

I think AMD has this thing called AMP (AMD Memory Profile) that's the equivalent of Intel's XMP. On Intel boards you'll usually have to enable Profile1 or whatever default profile in the BIOS for the memory in order for it to be recognized and run at its rated speed and timings. I haven't dabbled in AMD boards so I'm not sure of the specifics.

Nice build, by the way. That 850 Pro ought to be blazing fast, and the 970 Gaming is simply gorgeous.

Nice build, +1, but I would've went with a cheaper CPU cooler though (212 EVO), but that's just because I'm not serious about overclocking. I would've also went with a GTX 970 which would then allow me to get a 500W PSU. I also never use optical drives and a lot of times they ruin the look of cases, so I chose not to go with one. The price with my changes would've probably been around the same as this. :)

+1 I like how well the AMD fits in this build. Nothing from Intel would have been able to give you this performance at video editing at this price (Intel fanboy here). I'm sure it will also deliver great gaming experiences, especially when overclocked. It takes a build like yours to remind us that intel and gaming (and 1000++ builds) aren't the be all and end all of it. I would love to see some benchmarks/temps/GHz from when it's OCed.

How has your experience with the H100i been, aside from it blocking some of your mobo? I'm looking to maybe get a 120mm alternative from corsair, as my case isn't really made for a 240mm radiator.

I have a similar build and my mobo wouldn't recognize my memory speed with auto timing on. If you leave the timing on auto it will continue to go back down to 1333 no matter how many times you set the speed. Your board should be able to recognize 1600 if you input the speed AND the timing manually.
