Lol, anyone else wait for that picture that truly showed his cable management, but it never appeared? It seemed like he skipped over it. Anyway, nice build, happy gaming. Good choices here, and I like the fans.

Haha, yeah. Well, there are names that pop up frequently. I think every build in the Rosewill Thor V2 is entitled "thor".

Hmm. The other build entitled "Leviathan" was better.

Just kidding. Nice build. Smart choices. Assembled well. Nice job! Happy gaming!

Not to mention how noticeable the fan longevity difference is. (well, not noticeable, but you get the point)

Well, new power supply should take priority, and you might want to go up to 750W if you're planning on getting a second 760. Hmm... well, I guess a second 760 and an SSD would be a nice improvement.

Yeah. I was just saying: why not push the multiplier as high as you can at that voltage :p

Comment reply on kuhchuk's Completed Build: Blue Dream

  • 76 months ago

Yeah. And it'll probably be fine for kuhchuk, too. But a lot of people have problems with this psu, much more so than Seasonic or Corsair power supplies. Is it worth the risk?

Comment reply on kuhchuk's Completed Build: Blue Dream

I don't understand much about overclocking, but if he's running at that voltage with decent temperatures, couldn't he just bump up the Multiplier some (assuming that's enough voltage) and reach a higher clock speed without higher temperatures?

Comment reply on kuhchuk's Completed Build: Blue Dream

  • 76 months ago

Yeah. Really bad decision. I would wait until you can afford a decent power supply, rather than buying a great build with that... thing in it. I think a Corsair 600W is only $20 more. Is it worth $20 to have that thing blow up your build? Probably not.

Either way, just get that PSU fixed, and then this build is perfect. 760 is a great card, and two of those'll do great!

I think it is smarter to get one powerful card vs two weaker cards.

1) You can upgrade in the future. 2) Less power draw. (yeah, like anybody cares :p) 3) No SLI/Crossfire issues 4) Less noise (usually) 5) Less heat in case

There are many reasons. Anyways, love the build! Happy gaming!

The H100i is a high end (closed loop) cooler. It's for people who want to reach <4.4 or so. The 3820 is semi-locked and can only reach 4.3 GHz MAX. No matter what cooler, voltage, etc. The multiplier will not go higher than 43.

Why the H100i when you can only get to 4.3 GHz?

No. We're not talking about the GTX 760. We're talking about FX-6300. Give me some benchmarks if you're going to keep spamming the same crap.

I don't know about these micro stutter fixing drivers, but you're always going to have micro stutter with mutli gpu set ups.

And if microstutter is present with two 7970, then it will be present with a 7990.

The two HD 7970 are overkill for your cheap monitor.

Joking aside, nice build, and I'd like to see it once you get the 7970s in there. Those two 7970 with those coolers should perform far better than most 7990, and if you keep up the good cable management, look a lot better!

Nice build, I don't really see any problems with the part list, good luck and happy gaming!

Made by my girlfriend (and I!)

It's and me, sir.

But on a serious note, I like this build. Maybe you won't fully use the 16GB RAM, but it's there if you need it. If that 4670K starts to lag behind at stock speeds, (which it probably won't :p), $20 more and you can overclock that thing. I really don't see any problems with this build. Nicely done

I don't see any problem with 16 GB RAM. I have 16GB on my computer and I love it. When I'm playing a game, have a ton of chrome tabs open, have afterburner open, listening to music, etc, I have gone over 8GB a few times. It's nice not to have those restrictions.

Most Raidmax PSU are good. But there's a decent chance you get one that explodes and your build catches on fire and it's terrible. So why risk it? It's only $10 or $20 more for a corsair or seasonic

I agree. It was a very cost-effective to buy a single stick of memory rather than two, and I like how you saved money on the graphics by buying a terrible graphics card. I also think it was a smart choice to save $20 by buying a lower quality power supply that could ruin your build at any time rather than spending slightly more now to guarantee longevity, because who cares about several years down the road?

IS IT POWERED BY ASUS OR CORSAIR

YOUR STICKERS ARE VERY CONFUSING!

on a more serious note, I think it looks cool. I would like to see more clear parts, specifically a BD/DVD drive. That would be cool.

I would also like to see some waterproof parts so we could get some fish swimming around in there, but the latter isn't likely to happen :(

he most likely went with it because it's $20 cheaper than the 3570k and he's not a fan of AMD. he probably doesn't want to overclock.

so he shouldn't have gotten a z77 mobo, but I think he did okay.

Actually, the speed difference between the 840 Pro 256GB and the 840 Pro 128GB is negligible. 100,000 IOPS vs 97,000 IOPS. 540 MB/S read vs 530 MB/S read. That's not really a difference for general use a start up drive or for games.

I've Googled around, and people say that: 'in general use, you won't be able to tell the difference between the 830, 840, and 840 Pro, unless you're benchmarking".

So 840, I guess.

But... you won't. It costs slightly more, and the benefits are very small with Ivy Bridge vs Haswell. Now that Haswell prices are falling, it is becoming a better value, but Ivy Bridge is still very capable. I'd say equal with Haswell.
