Description

The name is due in fact to the 92mm fan I put behind the 212+, when it gets going everything on the wall behind it starts flapping in the wind.

I have been using this for gaming, video rendering, and everything else I could ever want to do.

The cable management is absolutely atrocious, I plan on fixing it in the future the when I upgrade.

I am quite happy with my build; it does everything I need it to do. It being my first I know that there is a lot I could have done better and I am willing to take criticism.

The cable management isn't all that bad. Considering the case, it's actually pretty good. Props.

Yeah, it wasn't ideal but it is sure better than others of the same price range.

But noise is not so good! And that little fan is a screamer!

mabey get one of those Dyson fans you know, the big ones w/out any blades. shove that in it

That's... a pretty good idea. Maybe a case modder might be up to the task.

that will be the new line up of fans, watch coolermaster/Noctua make them this year.

I've never seen anyone use them. I don't even know if they're any good for pressure or anything like that, but they'll probably be great intake fans.

Cable management is... not very great looking, but it doesn't look like it's affecting airflow, which is all that matters besides looking good. I probably would've gone with a 3570k and a similarly priced Intel Z77 motherboard... but hey. If it gets the job done, who can argue with it?

If all I was going to do was game, then yes, I would have gone with a 3570K but I have been able to put the 8 cores to good use.

Well if you're using those 8 cores well, and you're getting a benefit over the 3570k, then you've made good choices. Enjoy the pc!

I have to ask... How is that AMD processor running for you? I'm planning on building a PC over spring break and I'm debating on whether to go with the FX or an i5. For an example, how well could it handle Team Fortress 2 at the highest settings possible.

On cinebench when overclocked to 4.2GHz it scores 7.21. You can boost in-game performance by disabling half of the cores allowing four cores to have their own cache.

I haven't been able to play too many games as I can't connect it to the internet until tues. when my WiFi adapter comes in (too far from modem for a wire). It should run everything just fine seeing how with games you would probably need a better GPU than CPU. If you can use the 8 cores I would recommend AMD otherwise go with your price point.

Okay, so then its not worth buying the 8350... I'm assuming this is a beast for video rendering.

That PSU worries me because the GFX Card recommends a minimum of 450, plus it will not let you crossfire.

Connections are of no worry I have a spare converter but as for amperage, yes. I do want to get a better power supply down the road, preferably modular. I just got what I could for the price at the time.

The 7770 draws about 90W at most, and at absolute max load the rest of his system might draw 200W. I'd say he's fine, but Crossfire wouldn't really be recommended.

Great Build! Only thing I'd say that hasn't already been said is you might consider switching your hard drive to a lower slot so the intake fan can have a stronger flow over the GPU.

I have it where it is to keep some slack in the SATA power cable that goes to it and the video drive. I didn't want to use the second SATA power cable from my PSU so that I could tuck it away and keep it out of view.

I was just looking at it and I might be able to move it down one slot but it would be tight on the cable.

It is pretty good, though if I had to do it again I might choose differently. I like the ASRock Extreme Tuner though, easy control of the case fans while in windows.

Hahaha, Idiot! You never upgraded so the cable management is still garbage!!!

I was doing some heavy programming when I build this computer so I chose the better CPU but I do plan on doing that now that the price in lower!
