nice looking build overall :) though i would recommend in the future considering some higher speed ram if you make any further ram upgrades. you may be able to set your current ram to run at 1600mhz though without having to change anything else and get a bit more performance out of them.

Ya im going to try to OC them and see what happens. My list of upgrades is RAM, power supply and a SSD

That ram seems to be a little too expensive for the speed and capacity

It was the price of it at MicroCenter. Now of course 3 days after i got it they went on sale. But not worth the gas to drive back up there for 15 bucks

Ya i love the case. From day one when i saw it was instant boner for it lol. I really wanted the black and red but Micro Center near me only had white, Not to bad of a loss tho still got the case i wanted just not the color. Just means in a few months i build a better one with the red case for my self and give Ella to my wife. Rose City, Erm lol Dirty water guy here lol (boston)

The red and black one is pretty sweet but I just the clean look of the white. Friend said it looks like a refrigerator... Almost named mine "The Fridge" but that didn't sound very sexy lol.

Good stuff. I'd love to see a Firestrike benchmark from this build. We have the same CPU, but you've got the 270X where I have the 270. I'd love to know the difference in score that would give. Also, liquid cooling on the 8350 would give you some killer OC potential. Is that the plan?

Ill run one once i get her fully setup. Been built for a week now and maybe been on for 15 min lol. Work kills all my free time. But ya im gonna OC her see what i can pull out of Ella.

SOOoooo. lol i found the card for us to invest into lol.
R9 295X 8GB ~Drools~ http://techreport.com/review/26279/amd-radeon-r9-295-x2-graphics-card-reviewed

Nah. That 300 line should be out later this year. HBM on the 390X should outperform the Titan X in all our AMD glory.

http://www.lazygamer.net/general-news/is-amds-r9-390x-faster-than-nvidias-titan-x/

Just rumors so far, but we're pretty close. The High Bandwidth Memory stuff should be spot on. The note about H.265 encoding being 4x faster is quite incredible.

Oh god.. Clean up needed at my desk. I must get 2 of them lol and blow my computer up:D

Nice build! My only suggestion would be getting 8gb of ram instead of 16 and going with a better graphics card but otherwise, great looking build!

  • 59 months ago

Im gonna get the R9 3xx when it comes out. The ram is gonna be getting upgraded soon. Its nice to have the 16GB when doing map edits for Arma 3 that B**ch takes up a lot with a full map loaded lol

nice! i may also. I've always been an amd guy but this time went gtx 970 and wishing i wouldve got a 290x because of the RAM issues

Ya i started with ATI when i was a kid and my first off board video card was a ATI RADEON 9800 XT 256MB and i rocked that beast for 4 years lol. It never failed never gave up always did its job even with the new game that came out in the 4 years i had it. And that made me a ATI/AMD guy for life. Ive used nVid cards for one of my computers and was not happy with it and used they in a few customer builds due to them having low funds and they didnt need anything fancy to play minecraft.

And the fact that AMD cut the price of the 290x down to $299 just as the news of the 970 performance struggles came out... Yeah.

Absolutely love the H440! Have a blue and black one for my build. Also the 270x is a pretty nice little card. Ran with one for a little over a year, and it was able to keep up with a mix of ultra and high settings on all newer titles. +1

How is the cooling with the rad where you have it? I have the H440 and it doesn't seem like a lot of cool air could be sucked in from there.

  • 58 months ago

Well it is vented all the way around the top and only one rad so i can see there being to much of a issue with air.
