Actually already installed my card into her computer (Nvidia 970 4g).
I decided to purchase a Asus 480 strix edition for my pc so she is happy with her upgrade as well :)
Very nice build. You are right very similar builds between us! +1
Thanks for that info Rlake57. Ya the second stick is the plan for now.
Hey Andy, you mean by having a second stick I would gain a lot more right? I made a huge mistake by purchasing one stick it was an accident and plan on getting a second asap. Please let me know more though I am not 100% on the value.
Thank you Roman!
You are 100% right that its huge and it created a big problem with cable management. Only reason it is in there is it cost me $0.00 as it was in the old pc that I replaced. In the future I would like to get one that is modular and I can avoid having so much clatter in the case. Good catch.
The case I am using has a fan hub in the back where all the cables are stored so you can hook up any extra fans into that. I believe that is what I did, but to be clear I did not buy any extra fans, my case came with three fans and the only other one is the cpu fan that I purchased.
Hey There Perfect_Anubis. Monitor is working flawlessly. If I had any complaints its that it is Freesync (AMD) and I will most likely go Nvidia on my graphics card so I miss out on the G-sync. Other then that I have no complaints really that I can think of.
Glad the Sapphire Radeon R9 is working out for you, seems like a good card. What was the second card you were having a hard time deciding on?
Very nice love the color of the case. Also monitor very nice. All around nice build!
Cyuren I think it can run it just fine. But again all components work together so not having a GPU currently could easily cause some bottlenecks and be a problem :)
My plan was to get a Nvidia card until they talked about the new cards coming out end of May and I decided to hold off.
Ya sily Samsung! great SSD's but heck add a sticker or something to cover the initial one up.
Thanks Elias, I do recommend the case especially, looks beautiful especially at night.
Ya! What processor you have? I almost went with I7 as supposedly they can take advantage of Pascal more then the I5's... Oh well either way its better then the no GPU I am currently running lol.
Funny you say that, I had to wait 30 seconds to type this because it decided to sit infront of my screen. Once I get a computer chair instead of this low rider thing I am sitting on it will fix that issue.
Yes it is not what you would call a small case, but I just like the build quility, fan initial placement (comes with three) and like you said look (unorthodox but cool looking).
BTW not sure if anyone has noticed. I got around the annoying Samsung 850 SDD upside down name by just covering it up with a NZXT sticker that was included with the case. :)
thanks :) Ya that kitty is adorable, I rescued the poor baby from an attic that her mom had dropped her in.
I saw yours before I decided/made my build. I loved your build for you're Dad. I especially loved the black/grey/red cords. I almost got them tbh and might in the future.
Temp using cpuid has been around 35 to 39 at idle/internet scanning, and last night I was playing the game Stellaris for 2 hours noticed it went up to 51c highest mark. My A/C for house is kept at a constant 76F btw.
EXTREMELY, and I mean EXTREMELY quiet. Its actually very surprising but I think a major part is also the case itself is very well made and very sound proof., Either way I feel the cooler is very quiet both at idle and load.
