Why water cooling with a locked proccesor?
Watercooling just isn't neccasary for a non OC'd cpu... could've saved money but this is just my opinion (and over half the people on this site would agree with me)
$60 is not a "freaking expensive case".
Well you need a case.....sooo you might aswell buy a nice one. The cpu comes with a cooler so you dont got to buy one. I am still on my stock cooler because i dont plan on overclocking it yet.
yea well the stock cooler looks ugly
edit: unless you have a non window case
Mind adding a bit more detail such as which "motherboard" you're using?
The Motherboard is ASUS B85M - Gamer :http://www.anandtech.com/show/8950/asus-rog-announces-the-b85mgamer-motherboard
I've built a better and cheaper pc than this with a core i7 clocked at 4.0ghz not a locked processor
Definitely did not need the cooler master seidon, could've spent less on a 212 evo and got better cooling results.
The HDD has a higher fail rate than the WD Caviar Blue and the Seagate Barracuda, so could've invested a few more bucks into a safer HDD. Also, the power supply is kind of overkill and you could've spent less, got a EVGA 650W for example and you would have a safer psu and more money in the pocket. Finally, pretty good build, I like it! +1
I know it makes no sense having a AIO water cooler. But hey, I got it for free so I can't complain. The Motherboard is ASUS B85M - Gamer :http://www.anandtech.com/show/8950/asus-rog-announces-the-b85mgamer-motherboard
Fee is good, so why would you not play with water cooling? Nice build.
Thanks. From where I live, its not easy to get quality PC parts on a reasonable price. more often than not, I have to get it online and pay a premium for shipping. So considering I bought it within the 1k dollar budget, for us its already cheap.
"Fee" or Free.
I meant to type "free". Damn you Dell keyboard!
Hey is the PSU good quality? cuz im willing to buy one, but this is like the best cheap one i can find in my area and nice build :D
