I can't think of a great pun so here's a +1 and a box of potatoes for you.
At least its future proof.
But if you're not upgrading why don't you choose asrock's h81? They unlock overclocking for g3258
*Tears of awesomeness
H97M won't overclock it
btw, someone overclocked it @ 4.5ghz with Cooler Master TX3
You mean the other way around?
Did it bottleneck?
Why not pentium g3258?
How did you know that g3258 will beat x4 860k?
GJ. Balanced Build.
You can risk it out and get a r9 280. The MSI r9 280 is 150+$ now.
Should have invested in Intel not in AMD.
AM3+ is dead. Rumors about AMD's k12 CPU (14 nm ARM+64 Bit chips) would need FM3+/AM4+. Whilst Intel will release Broadwell CPUs at QT'2015
Whatever works for you :)
Sad to say I won't give a +1 because its not balanced and I'm not hungry yet.
OP takes notes
Beast +1 +2 + 3
we have different tastes I suppose :3
MSI's Twin Frozr V GTX 970 fits better
You should have check out Thermaltake Core V1.
How does multitasking do in that cpu?
Fail CPU + GPU combo.
You could have save few more bucks if you went with r7 250 with it.
It gives you 40 fps more.
cooler master hyper 212 plus (not the evo)
Please rate the CPU COOLER when you overclock :)
good decision. Its price/performance and beats gtx 780ti in some benchmarks.
look at this build
My advice as a pictographer (lol wut?)
Take photos at night so we can see the beauty of your case. And face it where we can see the windows of the Chassis :3
Congratulations on the build.
The points that should have been taken up :
The CPU changed to x4 860k (based on the Kaveri lineup but w/out the igpu)
Change Seagate Barracuda to a Seagate 1TB 7200RPM Hybrid. only $77+ [An HDD have a lovechild with an SSD]. About 5 seconds behind a SSD.
A fair and square +1 :)
HIS are good GPU makers next to MSI, cool. Less coil whine.
XFX are bad-a*s gpu makers. They've designed Great Radeon cards but, noisy like a laptop on super full load.
Did you built this already?
You can replace the CPU and go for x4 860k :)
Its basically the A10-7850k without the igpu.
Its on far with the i3 with ht (faster when overclocked).
Overall great build.
But you could have done better :)
That moment when someeone really made a great cable management in a mini-itx case
Well, whats done is done.
You really need to work on your cable management :3
There are tons of tutorials in Youtube.
You could have save a lot if you bought x4 760k instead.
Oh well. +1 for blue leds :3
Which university in U.S excels on Information Technology/Systems?
Hello fellow citizen on the internet.
I have an irrelevant question for you.
Would you mind answer it?
