OC about my parts. I know I could have saved a few dollars here and there but in the end I love the out come. More pics to come!
UPDATE - Got rid of my 760 GTX and changed it for a 780 GTX
Sexy, Well balanced. Nice build!
Also, are there any plans to add another 760?
760w psu is a lot of power for just a single 760.
Yeah haha, thats why I asked
I was thinking about it, till I did some research and found out that the cards are very close together when you sli. I should have gotten the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131977 which has the sli slots spread out more. But for now I am sticking to single card. Might sell the 760 and get a 780 or a r9 290x when they come with better coolers. Only way I can really Sli properly is if I water cool. It can be done in this case but its a challenge and lots of money.
Yeah micro atx boards can be an issue for sli configs, and if you want to keep that wireless adapter it looks like sli wont be an option. Like you said, your best option would be to buy the best single card you can get.
yea I love the wireless adapter but I can use it for another computer in the future. I will just have to run a wire to my office. But I am always scared of Sli... Maybe my next build will have a corsair 520 air I think it was. With a Maximus Hero or something along those lines.
Very nice, love everything about it. Never hurts to pay a bit more for looks. I assume 760 SLI is coming? That's what I planned on doing but I thought about selling my 760 for a 780 since they're within a attractive price now.
Lol thats what I might do. Its between the r9 290x and the 780
The only problem I'm most likely going to have is actually selling it. I don't know anyone who even games on PC let alone if they are willing to spend $200 for a video card.
Anyways I won't try to persuade you for one or the other. There are so many arguments between the best price-performance ratio that we forget that both will do very well regardless. Just preference and what entices you to buy.
Extremely sexy build, dat cable management man. +1.
Loved the red black combination
this is the exact same build i want to do! except i will go for a 780 when the prices drop.
Thats the plan for me 2!
Didn't the prices already drop? Are they suppose to drop more??
I think they are dropping another $100 when the 780ti comes out
Why would they drop it another 100? It's already as cheap as AMD now, why wouldn't they just make bank off of that?
Yeah It would make more sense to make bank! From what I've heard they will (which will be kickass if im going to upgrade!)
If they drop the price of the 780 to 400 from 500 now... It would not only shatter amd, but everyone could utterly destroy games at such a low price... It would be so good for the consumer and the gpu market. But I HIGHLY doubt they will drop it another 100, because that's just silly haha
Please make this happen
That's a very nice build! +1
Its coming! Had problems getting them off my phone! PROMISE!
Awesome, how do you find the performance of that network adapter?
amazing! its got a great range and very good speed
Just gorgeous. +1
Epic build, almost exactly what I've been planning on building. Love the cable management, very very tidy. More pictures please!
Very nice, color scheme is awesome.
I love me some black and red!
Does the front of the 350D only allow 1 fan for intake/exhaust?
no i have the same case u can have two 120mm fans in the front or three 80mm
and a filter there too' it is very nice case for the price and very classy
you can fit two either 120mm or 140mm fans in the front, u can also have (i think) the same in the top, along with 1 120 or 140mm in the back. i think that's it
Thanks i was able to figure it out in 10 months!
How you cable management??? I'm having trouble getting my motherboard power plug to fit in the back of my corsair 300r
the 350d has ample room for cable management
I will post pics of the back here shortly. You just have to bend and pull. I am planning on getting the aftermarket cables which are red and black but they are about $130 a pack....
lol $130 for colored cables
Love this build! Planning on using the 350R, Asus Gene and R9 280x myself later this year.
how has the 4-way optimization worked out?
The Asus Board, especially the GENE, has an auto optimization tool that, among other things, overclocks the system.
The manual should point it out.
wow I am def going to check that out.
I guess it includes the wireless adapter but this seems a bit expensive for a 4670k/760 build, considering that i'm (soon to be) getting a build with a 4930k/r9280x toxic for only about $325 more. I guess all the fans could add to the price as well.
Yes it was overpriced. But like I mentioned, its because I used all Asus and Corsair parts. I could have easily saved $400.
Good point, beautiful build, 1+ form me.
Gotta say this build is beautiful!
I'm assuming the front 2 fans are intakes, and the rest exhaust? That's generally how it goes but I've seen different :)
yup sure is! The case looks pretty cool closed up. I will put a pic up of that soon.
nice build! almost like mine ;) but one thing i've been having problems with is my rear exhaust fan! its screwed on but its very loose because the screws(have tried both the ones that came in the box and the original case ones; i have a 350d) what screws did you use? for the front fans i used these long screws which i think came with the h100i, so the front two and the top two fans were done with these; just having trouble having this exhaust fan fitted on properly, really really irks me. wish you can help me (:(:(:(:(:
I used the ones that came with the fans!
bah it just wont go in! the rubber grommits in the fans just cause it to not be flush if you get what i mean?
Did you use the wifi expand ability that comes with the MOBO? If so What wifi pieces.
nah I didnt want to pay extra. Plus I needed a pretty good wifi card since my router is way on the other side of the house. How much does that even cost for the gene. Wish it came with it.
The gene comes with a mini pcie combo card that has space for a wifi module and a ntff ssd. You should be able to install any mini wifi cards in this module.
Why not route the PCI-E 8 pin connector through the same hole as the sata cables? That is the only thing I would change.
Gorgeous build. Somewhat similar to my own: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/Fvk
What's with the NAS drive?
How is the wireless connection? I have to have wireless and am about to use the same as you.
Very good actually. I would say my router is about about 700 feet away from my computer and it gets perfect connection.
Very gorgeous build!
This is fantastic! Is the network adapter good value? Which router did you go for?
This network adapted is the most amazing I have ever purchased. It gets great range and awesome speed. High recommended.
Nice build bro! Very jealous! Asus and Corsair are two of my fav brands. Looks like you put a decent amount of work into this build, good job.
This is truly where Corsair's products potential is well embraced. Amazing build!
Probably one of the cleanest, most proper builds I've seen :D
nice build, very cheap
some bad things with this build... the hdd is only 5400 rpm so it isnt on par with the faster 7200 rpm drives... and it is only a slight bit more reliable. xfx has a cheaper 750 watt psu that is 80+gold and works the same if not better than that one and i do believe if you really wanted corsiar they have a 750 for $30 less than yours... finally... why the hell did you get a matx motherboard, there is NO way you are gonna sli on that thin... i wouldve went with hero rater than gene otherwise it is pretty solid, upgrade that mobo and save for a better gpu (possibly the 880 by that time) is what i would recommend... if you need a new hdd get one of the 120mb cache ones from seagate, they are fast as hell and are amazing
good build but try too spend more on ur gpu and cpu
Only downside - Windows 8.1 -sigh-
you can probably repaint it if you take it apart. Its a very good wireless card.
yea its very good. Strong signal
