It's good stuff :DD fantastic processor

Haha thanks :) If I may ask where did you find this? Was there a part in common with your parts list?

What do you mean by that? :p

Hah XD it was honestly unintentional, minus the case. They were just the best deals at the time. I will say though, I am a fan of EVGA after this build :3

My only defense is that I don't have an EVGA motherboard or cooler XD but I would if I could XD

Waluigi Build! In all seriousness, the build is gorgeous and they have specs to match. Great job!

You completely overlooked the water cooling in your description! also is it just me or is that graphics card sagging a LOT?

raiistar's Completed Build: Sunrise (Phanteks evolv ITX: i5 6600k + Fury X)

ModernZelda 4 Builds 1 point 39 months ago

Haha alright! I was only asking because doesn't the window cut off the view of the loop partially? I was also going to ask about how your loop is set up. What's on the right side? Is that a second radiator? I can't quite tell.

First custom loop I've seen in this case! Are you going to keep the side panel off?

ModernZelda submitter 4 Builds 1 point 39 months ago

No I did not need to update the bios but it's still a good idea to have the bios up to date. Your ram will work, but the memory frequency supported on the mobo is 1333mhz, so it will only clock to that speed.

Clicked bc of the title. Stayed for the pics. The build looks fantastic! NZXT cases are always a breeze to work in, and they look great! Excellent choice of parts as well, as long as 500GB is enough storage for you :P

rbm4's Completed Build: Cheapie the Cheapskate

ModernZelda 4 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

Great budget build, the specs are fine for an everyday use tower. The case is plain ugly though. IMO I would have gone with a Cooler Master N200 paired with a cheap 500W PSU. You would have ended up spending around 10 or so dollars more but the build would look more sophisticated. You are right though, first builds are always an experience!

rbm4's Completed Build: Cheapie the Cheapskate

ModernZelda 4 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

I believe the case has a PSU bundled in. Many cheaper rosewill cases have power supplies bundled with.

mrluckypants96's Completed Build: The Matriarch (Dell Optiplex 320 Rebuild for Grandma)

ModernZelda 4 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

Kudos to you, I have worked inside of Dell machines before, they're a nightmare :O. Everything looks great, but a 775 core 2 duo would have been a better choice if you had one or would be willing to get one. It would also be an interesting project to see if someone built an ITX build inside of this. You could almost do a NAS type setup ,where the chassis is mostly hard drives. I understand your grandma doesn't need that much power, but I'm just saying for the sake of saying :)

It would be great to see more pictures of the build in progress/ completed! The specs are great!

My apologies, honestly. It was late and it was rude of me.

ModernZelda's Completed Build: Goose -Budget Gaming Rig

ModernZelda submitter 4 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

I agree, but I also think that a 6300 is perfectly capable for a performance build. Sure the 8000 or 9000 series are going to be better but I don't think calling the 6300 a budget processor does it justice

ModernZelda submitter 4 Builds 3 points 40 months ago

Hah, thanks :D We were having trouble mounting it in the correct position because cabling got in the way so we decided to mount it to the side of the front panel :P

I do not understand your question.

Blog Post "Announcing PortablePicker"

ModernZelda 4 Builds 2 points 41 months ago

I know that it was released just 4 days ago, but you guys have to add a lot more search filters and retailers. Some I could think of for laptops: chassis material (plastic, aluminum, steel, carbon fiber, combination) convertible (yes no) and color. like come on, how could you guys put color on the tablet filter but not the laptop filter?

also if the laptop has upgradeable RAM/storage/cpu, that should be a filter too. A lot of new laptops have onboard RAM, eMCC storage, etc etc. It would be good to know that stuff.

FMH's Completed Build: EVGA Little Giant

ModernZelda 4 Builds 1 point 42 months ago

how did you get the EVGA stinger to be that price?

ModernZelda's Completed Build: Jellyfish - Compact Gaming Rig

ModernZelda submitter 4 Builds 2 points 44 months ago

GPU is usually $200 and EVGA has a B-stock section on their website. Basically it's products that might have light dents or scratches but EVGA have tested them and made sure that they work. Mine didn't have any dents or scratches.

Hahaha thanks for the upvote jipster. It's nothing too fancy but it's mine and I love it :D

ModernZelda's Completed Build: Jellyfish - Compact Gaming Rig

ModernZelda submitter 4 Builds 2 points 44 months ago

I was very price savvy in this build :3 I could have saved $10 by going with a 3.5" 1TB WD Blue Hard Drive but I liked the small form factor of the one I bought. My plan is to eventually have all the parts in this build replaced by an upgrade and use the other parts as backups/recycling/test benching.

ModernZelda's Completed Build: Jellyfish - Compact Gaming Rig

ModernZelda submitter 4 Builds 1 point 44 months ago

I agree that the Z97 would have probably been a better choice for this build. There are ways to overclock but I don't really plan on oc'ing anyway. after a few months I may replace the mobo with the Z97 or even something better, but for now it will work just fine :)

ModernZelda submitter 4 Builds 2 points 44 months ago

I haven't done that mod yet, but I bought the Noctua NF-A4x10 and the Scyth Mini Kaze Ultra and I plan on soldering the wires together then soldering the two fans to the psu. It shouldn't be too much of a hassle but I won't be doing it for a while.

All I would say is if you're going to do virtualization you need a lot of RAM. 16GB May be enough but I would recommend bumping that to 24 or 32 in triple or quad channeling respectively. Also with gaming you just have to look at what games you will be playing and see benchmarks of cards you're shopping. I saw you have the R9 380 in there. It's a great card but if all you want is 1080p 60fps then you could get away with a less powerful card. Also when you're shopping for motherboards keep in mind that motherboards don't really affect performance, they just limit your options as to what to put in your machine. there are definitely cheaper motherboards out there. they just won't have as many bells and whistles as others.

Other than that all this stuff looks good!

Wolfe_oX's Completed Build: First Build!

ModernZelda 4 Builds 1 point 46 months ago

If you're just gaming then I don't understand why you would go for such a powerful cpu

csdietz's Completed Build: The Death Of a Xbox

ModernZelda 4 Builds 1 point 46 months ago

Make sure to keep us posted on how well the 380 is working. I haven't seen the 300 series in too many builds yet and I'm curious to see how well they are :D

Bubbasubi's Completed Build: First build (13 years old)

ModernZelda 4 Builds 1 point 46 months ago

I really don't understand why you mentioned your age three times but it's a solid build. I would have gotten a smaller PSU and bought an SSD with the extra cash but it works so I suppose it doesn't make too much of a difference.

Bubbasubi's Completed Build: First build (13 years old)

ModernZelda 4 Builds 0 points 46 months ago

Not true necessarily. I had a job when i was 13. Granted it was a crappy job but you don't have a lot of options at that age anyways.

That blue/green glow though :3

Wolfe_oX's Completed Build: First Build!

ModernZelda 4 Builds 1 point 46 months ago

Eh, the CPU is a little overkill if you're just using the computer to play games, otherwise it's a great build! How much did you spend on the Graphics Card?

JohnyRegs's Completed Build: My Constantly Growing Hobby

ModernZelda 4 Builds 0 points 46 months ago

$100 for a 128GB SSD? You overpayed just a little my friend :P

Nebbo's Completed Build: Photek

ModernZelda 4 Builds 2 points 46 months ago

If you wanted to go for gaming, next time I would recommend an AMD APU and a video card that you can crossfire with the APU's discrete graphics. May have been a little more expensive but definitely would have done better than just the 750 ti

ModernZelda's Completed Build: Nectar - Silence Optimized Family Computer

ModernZelda submitter 4 Builds 2 points 46 months ago

I did not

ModernZelda's Completed Build: Nectar - Silence Optimized Family Computer

ModernZelda submitter 4 Builds 4 points 47 months ago

I was impressed by this power supply. I never heard the brand before and I was skeptical about a 400 watt power supply for $20 (after the rebate) but I was happily surprised to find out three things: One, the cables have a mesh, almost braided feel. Two, the entire power supply is blank, which is aesthetically pleasing, and, three, it is inaudible! :D

ModernZelda's Completed Build: Nectar - Silence Optimized Family Computer

ModernZelda submitter 4 Builds 2 points 47 months ago

Haha perhaps in time if things become more demanding ;) but for now it's great the way it is.

ModernZelda's Completed Build: Nectar - Silence Optimized Family Computer

ModernZelda submitter 4 Builds 4 points 47 months ago

It has a decent amount of space and it has a lot of options. For example, it comes with a removable hard drive bay (which we did remove) and two vertical ssd mounts. The 3.5" bay also acts as a hard drive slot. Cable management was great except there wasn't a hole for the CPU power so if you notice in the picture we had to rout the cable in front of the motherboard. The front panel comes off when you're adding anything to the 5.25" or 3.5" slots. All in all it didn't give me much trouble, so I would definitely go for it! It's a fantastic case.

Did you overclock? How much?

It's an HTPC chances are there's not even room in the case

Badman712's Completed Build: 3rd Build (for cousin)

ModernZelda 4 Builds 1 point 48 months ago

Either way it's a pretty dope build

Badman712's Completed Build: 3rd Build (for cousin)

ModernZelda 4 Builds 2 points 48 months ago

If you bought this all at microcenter you should have gone with the AMD FX-6350 and Gigabyte GA-78LMT bundle because it's only 120$ and it's for the most part very similar in specs to your mobo. Either way it's a pretty decent build with some nice designer features. I think the power supply is a bit overkill even if you're overclocking. Also that SSD is not going to be enough for everything, you should probably get an HDD.

thecoreytyler's Completed Build: Marine's Build

ModernZelda 4 Builds 3 points 48 months ago

Looks pretty nice, I personally don't like White cases but It's pretty good. I'm guessing it doesn't get too hot without a graphics card and all
