Description

Built this PC for my friend. As he wanted to equally distribute money towards current components and upgrade ability, he also had to spend money for all his peripherals. Overclock will come in the future for the upgrade to an i7 4790k.

Case

Wish there was room up top for a 240mm radiator but overall solid and non complicated.

Not going to wait for the GTX 1070? The 970 is a great card but for my build, i will probably get the 1070. :]

Pretty solid build. Bumping the CPU to 4.0 Ghz should be plenty.

Noice hardware choices, although did you know that that mouse has hardware acceleration?

I'm going to be using this case for my build soon, but for water cooling do I need to remove the fans in front? I really like the red glow they give.

Don't get this case if your going to watercool. Not only did I have to remove the fans and put the radiator there (because it wont fit on top), you have to take off the top of the hard drive cage to get a 240mm radiator to fit.

Do you think it would be fine if I just put a 120mm radiator in? Cause I really like the design of the case but if it can't water cool that well I'll find something else.

You could but if you're planning on doing any overclocking you wouldn't get as high of a clock as you would with a 240.

really..? never had that trouble with mine was able to fit it in perfectly but i had the fans on the other side

there is room to fit if you move the leds to the front of the case inside the cover and then putting the 240 inside behind the leds

Question. I have the Spec Alpha case as well as the Corsair H100i GTX cooler and saw how you have it behind the front panel. How did you get yours to fit? Or is it where the stock fans were and you have it all in the case?

I put it where the stock fans were, and i'm actually using the case stock fans for the H100i instead of the H100i stock fans.

i dont care to wait for the 1070 and such, because if you 2-way SLI 970s it will be cheaper and you get more power. BUT WHY DO YOU HAVE 550W power supply. Why not just go ahead and get the 850 or 750. SO MUCH better...

No, two-way SLI would not be cheaper. And if the game doesn't scale well 970 SLI may even perform worse than a single 1070, that is if the game even supports SLI.

Hell, even 1070 SLI should be fine with the 550W PSU, assuming you're not overclocking too much.

Now it won't be cheaper now that the new cards are out, better to run 2 980s or 1 1080 now with the new cards
