Sorry I got back so late. But, yes. You can have a push/pull config in your case, you have to install the block first instead of the rad. Also, the heatsink for your MOBO might be a problem if it is too high. (The I/O part) My temps were great with just one fan installed on the rad, so I only have the one.
Really good cable management on this guy, good job. Hey, hows that 960? What kinda FPS are you getting? What games?
I would turn that cooler to where the fan is pushing air out the back. Nice build though!
Looks fine to me. I'm not a huge fan of that case, I would get the black one, but thats me.
How is the HyperX Cloud? Thinking of picking that up for just a headset.
I would get a 2x4GB RAM kit so you'll have dual channel memory. And I would get a higher wattage of a PSU if you weant to SLI. Looks solid though other than that.
Solid build man! Unfortunately, BBC means something else on the Internet lmao.
Decent build man, how's that GPU?
Nope, thought the same thing lol
Yeah, i know its on the other side of the shroud lol. Idk, it looks different, I might switch it out. I got Silverstone cables. Good cables for a good price. I can't complain.
^ What this guy said, my 4690k is a beast right now, and will be for years to come. And yeah, if I see drops in performance, I probably will jump up to the newest i7 when the time comes.
Looks clean, solid build!
Yup, as JAR1337 said it's only held by a few screws. I have this same case but in black and I was also planning on painting that sucker. I dunno what I wanna do yet though lol
Ah, ok. Makes sense, do you know anything about Speccy?
How's that SSD? I have a 240GB one in my shop and am curious as to how it performs.
I'd go with the first one. Swap out the mobo as Misciner said and you're good to go. Maybe upgrade the GPU down the road lol
Sick build, I don't see anything wrong with it, besides the fact its not on the completed builds thread :p
I think this is a solid build.
He hasn't said anything so I don't really know what he wants to do with it.
Ahhh ok. Well, people do play with 2 screens, just one for youtube/skype and other programs and the other is well, the game. Sorry for the misunderstanding of your answer lol.
I still don't see how that answers this guys question? Or maybe I'm just stupid reading your answer wrong lol.
k, to each his own I guess. I will always suggest a gold rated psu over the bronze. If you don't have the budget for the gold rated one then wait a while till you can afford it. Or get the Bronze one and then switch to the gold, just dont go hardcore OC'ing and stuff like that with it. Whatever you wanna do. I just think that if you want a good gaming pc, you should jump for the Gold rated.
Hey, thats fine. I just know that anything 2Gb will run dual monitors. You gonna get like custom sleeved cables or something?
I think you're good. But if you have cash for the 760 then get it.
I think the 760 is a bit too overkill for this kinda build. If you're only playing those games the 750ti 2gb model will do just fine. Up to you though, it looks solid from here.
Find me a build on this website that is made for gaming, like what this guy wants to do, that has a bronze rated psu in the build. I couldn't find any. Every build that is being built for gaming should have a gold rated psu.
G. SKill is also pretty legit. But Corsair and Kingston are the best bet here. I got some Kingston HyperX Fury White and i gotta say, pretty legit and good looking to boot.
This is solid for this guy^
You need a Z97 MOBO to pair with that 4690k and the RAM. Anyone will do, just find the best reviewed one.
What kinda games are you gonna be playing?
Hey no problem! Enjoy your build!
Yeah its a bit too low. You know, thats the beauty of PC's, you can get that PSU that you had originally listed and just get a newer better one when you can. Just don't OC right off the bat. But i definitely recommend getting that 650W down the road.
What is Eclipse? I'm not familiar with that program. Yeah, BF4 and Mordor might need that boost. If you were just playing simple games like CS:GO or LoL or DotA, then you could get away with the bronze rating.
And the gaming and the programming are gonna need the Gold, if you were just doing simple office work or just browsing and simple stuff like that then the bronze would suffice. The rating is about the efficiency of the PSU, the higher the rating the better, it also saves more power the higher rating you go with. What kind of games will you be playing?
That should be fine, but maybe jump for the 80+ Gold. You want a Gold rated PSU if you're gonna do gaming or anything hardcore.
Unfortunately I do not know the conversions. So the best I can say is anything from Corsair is solid. EVGA has some good ones. Look around for some with good reviews. But you can't go wrong with COrsair.
It would work with what you have, yes. And I would spring for the 650W PSU. It'll give plenty of upgrade room for the future. In case you want to OC or Crossfire cards down the road.
Buy it already you motheryucker.
No, you're gonna need something better than that I think. Since it looks like you're not on a budget, you should pick up a 970 or 980.
I think you're good with the APU itself. If you go with a dedicated card, swap the CPU out for like a Athlon or something.
Ahhh lol ok. Yeah though, keep the 270 bump the CPU up and you should be fine for a bit. You will have to upgrade the GPU and maybe the PSU down the road. But for sure the GPU.
No, you stepped down with your GPU. Keep the 270 and bump the cpu up. Are you on a tight budget?
That 750 will be fine. I was about to pair my 4690k with a 750ti, I'm not hardcore gaming, only like CS:GO and DotA2 and other simple strat games. But that card will do some modern titles. This builds fine, and it has upgrade room.
Hey no problem. I would benefit you to maybe go with a different CPU, maybe a FX-6300? You'll have to switch out the MOBO if you do go with that CPU. I would also spring for a 650W psu, just so you have upgrade room. That GPU will be outdated like, tomorrow lol. But you'll want a different GPU down the line.
* ArmA2/DayZ 40ish
* BF3/4 50-60
* COD 50-60
* Gmod/minecraft over 60
* WoT probably 60
I have a build similar to this and no SSD lol Idk, I usually go and do something while my computer starts up.
No problem dood!
Ok, then you're build is set! Solid build!
