Forum Topic "Thank you for this Website"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Agreed, it's changed my life.

Forum Topic "Eagle Scout AMD BUILD."

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Will do, thanks for the advice!

Forum Topic "Eagle Scout AMD BUILD."

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Well according to the most up to date workbook, there is actually no time requirement, though I'm already keeping a log in Exel for all my hours. Thanks for the tip though!

Forum Topic "Eagle Scout AMD BUILD."

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Congrats on Eagle! I'm doing my project this summer, but just curious, does this computer have anything to do with your eagle, or are you just stating the fact?

Forum Topic "Fan Sizes"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

I can't see why not!

Forum Topic "5ms vs 4ms vs 3ms vs 2ms vs 1ms response time"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Gaming is where it will make the biggest difference, but unless your a die hard gamer, 5ms should be fine.

Forum Topic "Do Xeons have Hyper Threading?"

Oliver submitter 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

K, and can any Xeons go in any 2011, or does it have to be a specific server mobo? Thanks again for your help!

Forum Topic "Do Xeons have Hyper Threading?"

Oliver submitter 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

K, thanks.

Forum Topic "Do Xeons have Hyper Threading?"

Oliver submitter 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

All of them?

Forum Topic "Noob here trying to figure stuff out."

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

The build you have is fine, and even though Cooperred is right about 500 wts, that will not give you much room for overclocking or upgrades in the future if you decide to, so I'd stick with 700, or at least 650 especially since PSU's are pretty reasonably priced right now.

Forum Topic "My Big Build!"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Agree with what Remi said, but as long as you listed it, what's the reasoning behind two 760's over a 780?

Forum Topic "Can a 1300 W PSU handle 6 r9 270?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Just a random question, I'm probably missing something: Why do you need to buy 6X risers if you could plug 4 of them into the PCI X16, and then get two risers for the 2 PCI 1X?

Forum Topic "best/nicest looking build section"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

So staff, any thoughts???? :)

Forum Topic "best/nicest looking build section"

Oliver 5 Builds 2 points 63 months ago

That's why I was suggesting having specific categories in the forums, so people could vote specifically based on one thing, best looks, best value, best balanced, ect... There would still be the one "highest rated" where all the factors were put together.

Forum Topic "best/nicest looking build section"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

That's a nice idea in theory, for example the ones with the most technical skill, nicest budgeting, best looks, and so forth, but it would have to be decided in votes as well. Maybe it could be a thing in the forums, where different categories of builds can be voted on.

Forum Topic "best/nicest looking build section"

Oliver 5 Builds 2 points 63 months ago

It exists, up above the builds in the completed builds section, just select the "highest rated" sorter rather than the "date" one is is by default set to.

Forum Topic "I've been builing my gaming pc, and trying to stay cheap."

Oliver 5 Builds 2 points 63 months ago

770 should carry through fine with a single monitor, especially if you'll be waiting for an upgrade, all depends on how much your really willing to spend.

Forum Topic "Picking a future watercooled case for my build."

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

*5 1/4" :)

Forum Topic "I've been builing my gaming pc, and trying to stay cheap."

Oliver 5 Builds 2 points 63 months ago

Second all those ideas, but I would even go with a 770 if you plan to upgrade, because a 770 can pull off majority of games fine depending on your monitor setup.

Forum Topic "better keyboard needed!"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

I have the CM storm trigger, my first mech keyboard ever, and it's great!

Forum Topic "Ram and cooler question"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Not sure if this answers it, but check this build out: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/zJJ

Forum Topic "402 watts so far."

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Semi usually means the 24 pin and EPS 8 pin are connected to the PSU, and are not detachable, where all the other cables are. Modular means there are no wires that can't be removed.

What's that case in the first pic, it looks like a custom paint job! EDIT: Never,mind, saw your other build.

Forum Topic "Looking to add side window."

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

What's the problem with cutting? Dremel, tape, time, and your all set, I'd try it on some scrap metal before making the actual cut though.

Forum Topic "What is "Comment Karma"?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

That is pretty much what it is, the website used to have your karma next to your name in every post, but they changed it a while ago.

Forum Topic "Finished Forums topics button"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

got it.

Forum Topic "Finished Forums topics button"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

I think he means forum threads that are finished, as in "the question is answered", or "the part was added", should be removed from the list of threads, not sure why though...

Forum Topic "MAKE RYSE SON OF ROME FOR PC"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

No problem

Forum Topic "NZXT H440"

Oliver 5 Builds 2 points 63 months ago

Wow, that looks really nice, and even though 5.25 drives are getting old, it's still a bold move to totally eliminate them.

Signed ;)

Forum Topic "27" Gaming/Coding Monitor"

Forum Topic "Water cooling?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Nope, I didn't get anything.

Forum Topic "Water cooling?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

I will! I really don't want to release the idea of it to the forums yet, though if you like we can discuss the plans of it through private messaging , because it may interest you!

Forum Topic "Water cooling?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Good luck!

Forum Topic "Water cooling?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

What? I didn't even know that existed!Wow, now that I look at it, it probably would be, good looks also!

Forum Topic "Water cooling?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Looks great! Most of this is based off opinion, and it would all work great either way! I would just like to remind you that your going to have 4 fans left over, unless you do push pull on the H100i in the front of the case, because it would be too thick if you had the rad plus two layers of fans. I f you are mounting your cooler on the roof, I would suggest looking into the H110 or a 2X 140mm radiator, just for a little more cooling power, because I BELIEVE that the 350D can fit a 280mm rad up there.

Forum Topic "Water cooling?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

It really is a great case!!! If you have any questions, I would be more than happy to answer them!

Forum Topic "Is this too much power for my rig?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Yeah, if you've got the money, more wattage can never hurt.

Forum Topic "Water cooling?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Thank you, I have crazier plans than that build for this upcoming summer! ;)

Forum Topic "Water cooling?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

If he plans on ever extending his loop to cool the GPU or more, I'd say go with Swiftech 220, if not, do H100i

Forum Topic "Water cooling?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

My bad, just pulling this stuff from my head, h100i would work very well, you could also consider a swiftech H220, though a bit more pricey

Forum Topic "Water cooling?"

Oliver 5 Builds 1 point 63 months ago

Maybe the Kracken X60
