you and i both lol, probably gonna take me around 2+ weeks. waiting on the proper tools to arrive, and a new dremmel
yeah, a hole big enough for a fan with a slot to put the hoses
There's actually 0 space for this in the case, i'm trying to figure out it's effectiveness if mounted outside of the case. The issue is that it's going to take a bit of modding, which i was a tad bit unprepared for. (cutting slats in the top for air and 2 giant holes for the tubing) as of now i have the big *** stock cooler sans paste on it until i get around to modding the case. MOBO hookup is my first in almost 13 years, so this is going to be an experience. turns out noone has this ****** case either so, crossing my fingers tonight for first boot.
I just got into liquid cooling myself. Was thinking about your set up and then my brain stopped working and i was all like "the hos..the colorful pink purple blue.....who am i...where do i build that"
just so you know, you cause many people to have sight induced siezures of joy! haha really cool man, really cool.
Absolutely, basically I'm asking if the graphics card is responsible for the graphics entirely. Back in the day the amount of RAM impacted games and multi tasking.
i remember how i spent 11 hours at work and 2 in the gym last night and somehow found the time to unbox my gear and learn on the fly how to install and wire a motherboard, psu, cpu and hdd.....and i'm half way retarded. I HATE excuses bro, but if you start modding it (replace mobo, cpu etc) you will have earned respect, however small
Thanks man! cable mgmt is going to be a ***** with that PSU though for sure. I'm real confused on the wiring, so lets just hope i won't fry it when i boot lol
for sure, i spent the money on the ram like an idiot, but the cooler i got on sale. it was a refurb model as is the vid card. I'm always hunting for deals so when vid cards come down i'm going up. I hear the next gen vid cards are going to be out in 4-5 mo? Does music tax the processor at all or is it essentially so minimal it's negative impact is negligable as long as there is sufficient ram?
Refurbished from Tiger Direct. I was afraid it would be leaky, but it's dry. It will need some love to fit in this case for sure. Came highly recommended though.
Haha it seems like I wasted cash which blows but km definitely gonna snag that psu everyone says to grab. Does the 80+ bronze mean anything or just a model?
I was looking at that option with the 6300 and they had a bundle for like $100 cheaper with the 6350 and I thought you could oc it more bc of the higher voltage?
For sure I didn't do enough research on RAM I was under the old impression that you can't have too much. That's clearly not the case lol. Thanks for the advise!
with crossfire 270x's do you think that'll bump to 60fps on ultra? just curious. I have an almost identical build all in wraps while i wait for the big pay check to get my vid card on ;)
Hmmm, where did you get this info about ATI/AMD combos being bad? I thought I'd done my due diligence and haven't found many issues so far? Performance wise, Nvidia doesn't make anything in that price range that can handle the tough stuff?
once i had a high end compy in the military, i used it as a coster for my JD while i played CS: Source. Spille the JD all over my compy. fried. just now thinking about rebuilding. you sir, are ******* awesome. go all out and forget the trolls. this machine is good for like 5 years and beyond!!
I got an XBOX one but guess what, there are no games available, 1080p is the best and he can get that with his monitor. Don't troll just to troll meng, he just wanted something to exp the games the new ****** consoles don't offer. he can UPGRADE that GPU bro, let it alone.
i'm getting a 270x to crossfire, but starting with one, i love PS2 on ultra, tell me how much my rig will eat it. a 15 yr old doesn't have much income so congrats dude, ur a ****.
I'm working on getting a barebones kit at TD for less than $600 you get the FX-6350 and everything minus the vid card and cpu cooler. kind of a bargain, totally going for the xfire 270x and a better case at some point, i'll let you know when i get it all built up! i haven't built a compy in almost 12 years (I was 16 the last time i did it, and cpu's didn't hit 2ghz yet lol). Thanks for the tips thought!
DO you reccomend a forum to hit up about parts and components?
same thing i'm doing, seems logical right? although, once that happens all this "bitcoin" fad will fade away and return prices to the norm after they've over produced cards, or it sticks around and supply meets demand in a sense.
Have you tried any gaming on it yet? just curious, i can't wait to buy my starter pack from TD and start building!! How exciting was that first boot?
How were your settings on PS2? Could you get up to ultra with that build?
I've literally just copied this build almost exactly at TD, kinda like that johnny cash song, "one piece at a time" great combo to snag motherboard, processor and a quick 4gb stick of ram. Anyhow, LOVE this build, going with green LED's to light it up tho! lol thanks!
