This build was made mainly for gaming and other things. I built this in early January but decided to post here after I got my new CPU cooler.
Great build! That Enermax cooler is great. Congrats though +1
Looking good !! I honestly never heard of Enermax since I'm new to PC building, but I might look into this brand and maybe use it in any future builds I may do
Looks, like a really nice build for a first build, with great components (went a little bit further out for a first build). Saying that I do like to go for a little better quality components earlier on, instead of always trying to keep up and fork out money more often.
Awesome build! I envy your wire management skills. XD
Would have opted for i5 and cut back to a 3gb card (I admit, I am in the minority on GPUs since I do little gaming. More of a cut the cord and stream to 4 smaller builds). Props: wiring is pristine (seriously). Nice to see a 128 SSD. (easy to over do these then to realize you, your mom, your wife and your gf don't have that many apps/programs. I got like 6 TB of HDD, but once again, I watch a ton of media. Advice: get out of the closed water cooling system sooner rather than later. Took me 3 months and a busted H100i to figure this out. XSPC Raystorm runs about $30 more for 240mm radiator kit. it runs on average 5 degrees cooler. with .3 ghz increase on CPU.
Nice but why that power supply?!?!?!
As series psus are their 1 or 2 and have a higher efficiency rating than most other power supplies in the same class. Personally I would have spent more on an 'i' version, but his choice was a good one. I myself own a g2 750 and having the better efficiency and higher wattage keeps the build quit and the bills low
The CX750 is better than other CX psus. It's ok.
CX units are meant for basic systems - they hold up well for non stressful environments such as this one. This build doesn't even come close to a 750w power draw and won't be under any crazy loads.
Would have been well more than $10-15 more.
