Description

Mainly use it for heavy gaming and video editing. I uploaded some of my Skyrim pics :)

All parts work good, though the H80i could cool better.

Why did you get a Sabertooth compared to say a P8Z77 V LK or something like a Gigabyte UD3H or MSI Z77A G45? You know, something more budget friendly, then you could have gotten a i7 3770k

I was going for a nice, dark motherboard. The Sabertooth was the only one, I just need to do some cable management and I should be good :)

I've seen the board in real life and it's a bluish, pale gray. The Saber tooth looks much better. Also, I should note that it's $160 in the US, whilst in Canada that board is $190.

That's understandable. I would certainly have spent another $30 for a sabertooth if the UD4H is that much

Wow, its way too much. with 1900 $ you can get a way better rig than this.

The price of living in Canada, high import taxes :( Remember that I also got the OS and monitor/wireless stick. So minus $350 and the total is ~$1550.

People say they have trouble mounting the H100(i) in the R4 above the motherboard, but there is another option for mounting it in the front as intake.

I guess.

Home has a few differences that aren't user friendly. It's definitely not as friendly on a network.

Whilst the component choice isn't the most cost effective, I really don't care because it looks amazing. The R4 with a window is such a smart looking case and the black throughout looks great.

Its a nce build i was considering an ASUS sabertooth but i heard horror stories with mounting my H100I, how did that work for you? and anotherthing, with such a powerful build why the 21" monitor?

  • 82 months ago

The mounting was good for me :) Just gotta make sure you have headroom. As for the monitor, I had bought it off a classified ad. I'm going to buy a 144Hz monitor soon, so it should all work out ;D

When it comes to picture quality the smaller the better since you get more ppi that way.

Looks nice and clean! But you should try to hide that 24pin cable behind the mobo. Regardless +1 from me :D

Yeah, I gotta do some cable routing!

Very nice and balanced build, good job.

I like it, except for the motherboard, and the high-speed RAM. Why pay extra for those things?

OCing ability and bench marking. It also speeds up my editing, so why not eh?

I love the build. Very high quality components especially the MoBo and the PSU. Why did your 7950 cost $370 though? Got my Gigabyte one for $300 last week.

I built this computer 1 month before. They now sell it for $349.99.

Windows 7 Ultimate... SMH.

Could've taken that $100 and put it somewhere nice.

Obviously you're using a depth of field mod, but I can't peg precisely the other ones. HD textures?

  • 82 months ago

I'm using about 150 mods, so it's hard to name all the texture mods ;)

  • 81 months ago

Yeah. My 1 year old Lenovo couldn't keep up with all the mods I put in (Warzones in particular seemed to be rough on my processor), which is what really compelled me to go for building my own.

really solid build, some overpriced parts here and there but its all about enjoying what you pay for. how is that case doing with dust management?

  • 82 months ago
  • 1 point

True, I was going for the best quality components where ever possible. The dust management is excellent! The dust I really only have to clean is the top exhaust fan, other than that, positive airflow!

God how I love the sabertooth. My personal favourite board aesthetics wise. Nice build, just clean up those cables a bit man. :)

Thanks and yes, I'll be doing some cable management soon :D

I love your build. Very balanced and clean. Also, I understand your pain of higher prices in Canada. It sucks but we make it work.

I just have two questions... 1) Why did you go with Ultimate over Professional? 2) What mods are you using in Skyrim? :p

  • 81 months ago

I got Ultimate because I could use language packs. As for the mods, I use over 150 so it's hard to name them all :P

I'm thinking of going with H80i for my new build with R4 as well. I noticed that you only have one exhaust fan at the top, was this by choice or will a second fan not fit on top with the H80i?

  • 62 months ago

It was by choice. I wanted to make the computer as quiet as possible without sacrificing airflow.

  • 62 months ago

The H80i is actually pulling air in and the case fan up top is the only exhaust.

Who's looking at this build in 2015?
