Description

This is my 2nd build using the Corsair 100r Silent Edition. First, I wanted to start of by saying that I love the Corsair 100r silent edition. I wanted to make a build that has high performance parts in an unsuspecting case like the 100r.

I am thinking of adding another fan to exhaust more air out of the case to allow better cooling when gaming.

Note: 3D Mark picture is reflecting both GTX 970 in SLI without any overclocking.

Edit 02/04/16

I used the GTX 970's in SLI because I had 1 from my previous build. So, I want to get more performance but not entirely lose out on not using my other GTX 970.

I game on 2 24 inch Asus Vw246H 1080p 60hz refresh rate so this set up although 4gb video cards still does the job and then some. I don't plan on buying 4k monitors for a while.

Added some new fans and including pictures of them.

Great build very clean and the 970s looks beast ,but why not go for a single gtx 980 ti ?

I actually had a GTX 970 from a previous build. And, I also wanted to try out SLI which I'm finding it likes to heat things up lol. Currently, working on adding an extra fan.

yes....and maybe save the money for a core i7

The i7 just doesn't seem worth the cost 400 vs 240 for cost/performance ratio.

It is yeah. A good PC in basic case the the HP Pavilions (or similar) from the XP/Vista and Early Win 7 times is how I see a Sleeper anyway

I know you're joking. I won't hurt you :D

But it would be interesting to see how that would cope.

Not well I would imagine

Yes, I got the title from a Youtube Awesome Sauce network build I saw him do high performance parts in an old HP desktop. The corsair 100r is a budget pc case in its class so I guess that's kind of how I saw it but yes probably not the truest build per the definition. But, with no side window revealing all the guts of the PC who will know of the performance that lies inside.

Agreed, that's what I watched and now I want to do it for my next build that I can take around as I used to have a Pavilion, a more modern one though.

Cool looking build i just wanted to point out that the cards in your picture and the cards in your parts list dont match up, but i cant find the actual card on pcpp so oh well, Also why sli and not a 980ti

Have you overclocked on this board? Also anything pro or con you could give me on this board would be appreciated. Great build!

Yes, I used the OC genie at first with the 6600k but it ended up causing an event error, which caused random shutdowns. So I went to manually clocking it and that worked out great 4.6 ghz stable. I think that the pros on this board is the price, sli compatible , and if you are doing a black theme build this is your board. I would recommend updated to latest bios upon buying it if you got that route. Some cons would be I/o shield is cheap, the cpu power cable routing sucks, (corsair 100r and corsair 400c experience) . All in all for 140 couldn't ask for more.
