Description

Primary use for gaming/streaming.

This is my first ever build. I am upgrading from a laptop, so big relief I will never have to use that again.

The only problems that I encountered with this build was in the bios. I had a friend help be build this computer since he had some experience building. In the bios I had 3 options and was one performance. I didn't know this would automatically overclock my CPU; I kept getting the bsod but I managed to figure out what it was. Overclocking overall wasn't as hard as it seemed as for now I am just going to be running stress test to see if I can get it to 4.5 since I tweaked with the settings in the bios and got the overall temperature lower.

The only thing I don't have at the moment are the monitor and my mouse. I didn't have the funds for the monitor so in the meanwhile I am borrowing a friends. As for the mouse I still am undecided on which to get.

I really like how this build came out. I don't think the pictures do it justice. Also I didn't have a high quality camera I borrowed a friends potato.

Feel free to comment and ask any questions.

Edit: I realize in the picture the back fan is intake. We realized this after we put the build together but we fixed it right away. We just never put pictures of the updated one.

First of all, Congrats on your first build!!

Next, I would like to ask why you picked the 4770k as opposed to the 4670k as my understanding is that gaming does note require the hyper threading that the i7 offers.

I know people here are very picky when it comes to cable management and it isn't because they're neat freaks but the fact that good management offers the best possible air flow for each build. And what you did here is wonderful. The fact that you took the time to color coordinate says a lot.

Please tell me about the hat on your PC....

Great build +1 from me.

It was a lot of fun working with all those extension cables. I'm glad it turned out looking as well as it does. That hat is a USMC cover.

As for the 4770k I know the hyper threading wont do me any good I even turned it off in the bios but I looked at it like I spent $2000 on this might as well get the best processor for $30 more since I bought it at micro center. Also the cable management in the back is horrible; the case doesn't offer much space but I managed to hide it all. lol

I'm in the Marine Corps hence the hat.

Thanks for the input!

How come you are using the rear fan for intake? Other than that, this build is almost exactly what I am building.

We installed it backwards initially. Fixed it later, but all the pics show when it was still backwards.

LOL. I forgot the picture was when it was backwards. We found that out later good eye though.

"Friend" here that helped with the build. Awesome rig to work on. The most expensive one I've put together to date. Accidently installed the rear fan as an intake rather than an exhaust initially, but we fixed it later. Thanks for letting me put it together!

First build I've seen with the red/black H440. Looks great +1

Looks like you have your rear fan as an intake..? Might want to turn that around

I love the build but I see slot of people. Make this mistake i7s. Are good. But the AMD has 3.8 ghz and quad core

Are you just trolling? Or do you genuinly not understand the difference between a 760k and a 4770k?
