The Dragonov Build

by cheapshot67

Description

This is my first build in more than 8 years. I haven't touched any computer since then so it took me like 3 hours to do this build. I don't know if its any good or not for you guys. It's mainly for gaming and work. I'm currently running a stress test. It is currently at 4.0 GHZ and at 51C at 100% load.

Nice build. Have you tried overclocking the i5 more?

cheapshot67 submitter 1 Build 1 point 58 months ago

Yes i will since i just did the build a while ago I am still doing it a step at a time so I will know how good the components are.

Only question i got, is i hope that Windows 7 home premium 32bit was just a wrong selection from the list lol otherwise nice build!

cheapshot67 submitter 1 Build 2 points 58 months ago

that is supposed to be 64 bit i just cant stand windows 8 because my friend has it and its a little bit annoying :0

Nice cable management.

Overall nice build! +1

cheapshot67 submitter 1 Build 1 point 58 months ago

Wow thanks for that mate I didnt know I did well on cable management haha

SpicyPickle 1 Build 2 points 58 months ago

From what I can see you did very well.

cheapshot67 submitter 1 Build 1 point 58 months ago

Thanks for that mate so no overkill on parts then?

SpicyPickle 1 Build 2 points 58 months ago

Maybe the mouse...I wouldn't spend 90 bucks on one.

Although that's relatively minor.

cheapshot67 submitter 1 Build 1 point 58 months ago

Yeah its on sale for 50 bucks so i just got 1 haha. I bought this big case for future water cooling

51c at 100%?! That's awesome!!

cheapshot67 submitter 1 Build 1 point 58 months ago

Yup 51C so i am still going to be boosting it up a couple of notch later and see how it goes

treyman484 1 Build 1 point 58 months ago

You better lol :D

Electrospeed 2 points 58 months ago

That cooler is so big... it's bigger than the graphics card... lol

cheapshot67 submitter 1 Build 1 point 58 months ago

Yeah its quite big. I chose that instead of a close loop because the fear of any leaks of thermal coolants. I am planning to do a custom water loop in the future ao stay tuned.

Very similar to my build! Same GPU, CPU, Mobo, RAM. Very nice. :)

cheapshot67 submitter 1 Build 1 point 58 months ago

Thanks for that i appreciate it. Its quite a balance build i think so i dont know if i did a couple of overkill on the components so just keep on commenting to make this lean mean wrecking machine a better look.

XDestroyer 2 points 58 months ago

You could have made minor changes to some parts, and you could have gotten the GTX 780. Its still a good build though.

cheapshot67 submitter 1 Build 1 point 58 months ago

i didnt get the gtx 780 because i am not a heavy gamer at all and a descent 1080p resolution + med to high settings are good enough for me, i will be upgrading in a couple of months maybe SLI or even a custom waterloop :0

ESPM400 1 Build 2 points 58 months ago

You did good, mate. It's nice to see a decent rig come out of Aus. I've been planning on moving there for a while now (my sister lives in Melbourne), but the import taxes are just insane. Well, that and smokes and booze are both about double the price that they are here in Canada...

cheapshot67 submitter 1 Build 1 point 58 months ago

yeah mate it's really expensive here costed me like 2.4k just to build it that is including the shipping etc

I would get this one MSI not very popular asus is best statistically.

Hey, was it hard fitting the corsair vengeance memory under the NH-D14? How did you do it?

cheapshot67 submitter 1 Build 1 point 57 months ago

no it wasnt bro it was just right actually did you have any problems with it?

Ope_Lee 1 Build 1 point 57 months ago

Because apparently on the noctua website with RAM compatability the Corsair Vengeance (non-Pro) memory doesn't fit under the NH-D14 according to their website and specification of ram clearance. If anything can you show a picture of how much clearance you got under your CPU heatsink? Really thinking about buying this cooler but my ram height is stopping my decision.
