Gank time LOL
Hey sorry about that. I love my LG, it is flawless, no hiccups, no dead pixes, literally nothing wrong with it. Now it is only like $550 bucks, what a steal!
Build turned out pretty clean.
We just like to gank a lot ;)
Yea just a regular computer now the cardboard gave it a little character lol.
Yea apparently the cardboard trash was a huge hit. Made it all pretty and it's old news now :(
The 903 runs great, haven't had a single issue with it, and haven't plugged in for charging the 2 months or so long I've had it.
That's why I buy every sticker eBay recommends for my case!.
Nope, it's perfect. I spent 3300 and skimped out on a 100 dollar case.
Agreed I have an LG 165hz 2k Monitor and it is incredible how smooth it is. 32 inch to boot, well worth it.
I'm always amazed at these lower budget rigs. Very nicely done, love the color combo. I Can't figure out how mine comes out so much and these things do just as well of a job for the most part. Don't worry about Cable Management, my Amazon Cardboard Box build had ZERO cable management options, so I had to nock them a point off for that.
I'm a Gamer at heart man. Sitting for 2 days looking at parts, and being I"m over in Afghan, it'll take a week IF my case shows up. Thanks for the props, really appreciate it, I will update once the real case comes in but thought people might enjoy something a little different on this site ;)
Surprisingly I'm going to give Amazon a 6/10 for their first PC Case. It runs really well, nice n cool, very easy to cable manage, none. Just plug n go and it is rare, everybody got all these sweet air vents, and pre-drilled placement for your parts, but with this, you can lay it out however you want. You could say it was designed for anybody who thinks outside the box, Amazon's new motto.
Yea I'm not a fan of the color, but it was a Friday blowout special on Amazon. I didn't think to check for cable management, guess it was meant for a closed-door situation but I cut them off by accident :(
Hate to be the bad guy here, but your Corsair Pump is upside down?
Thanks Bro....Yea well when we put our builds out here we have to expect negative criticism about our builds, it is all good. This computer has currently been in storage for about 7 months with zero use....I'm back over in Iraq and won't be back to use it for another 3 years, so sadly this thing will die off and I"ll be forced to build a whole new computer upon return.
The Sentry 2 that I put in was a piece of cake. That 5 Knob thing that I got was a hunk of crap, it was half a bay, didn't screw in right and I didn't like it at all...The Sentry was well worth the money.
I have had to disconnect and switch them off during the build waiting on new fans, and I never had an issue with them. The cables they give you from each fan are braded cables, very very nice quality. I am very happy with it and would buy it again on my next build if I do one some day.
Yea I see what your saying. I will in a few hours, being deployed I have a roomy and he is sleeping. I will soon, thanks for the comment.
Ok I see what you did and are having an issue with...My case is diff, I can't even put the fans inside the case. What you need to do on the top Heat Sink, there are two clips that go to the backside of the motherboard. It is a bit tough but just merely push both in and pull the heat sink off, and then simply flip the heat sink and clip it back in, your problem will be solved.
Hmmm, my H105 is amazing, I am loving it. My fans are outside the case, they would not fit in my case so they aren't even close to touching. I'll have a look at your build.
There isn't any devices I'm aware of that use USB 3.1 A, so it is just using 3.0.
Great decent looking basic build. I wouldn't be upset with it :)
Absolutely will not fit. Won't fit in most Mid-Towers, fans mount on top of the two fan placements, works great :)
You have the same issue I do. Bought the h105, doesn't fit in this case, hell doesn't fit in many Mid-Towers, I just put two SP120 Corsair High Performance cans on top the case, looks bad *** :)
Funny that case is built identical to my CoolerMaster Scout 2. I'm changing around my cabling, my cooling, adding custom backplates to GPUS, changed out the keyboard and the FAN. Basically having to re-do what I screwed up on to make it look like the great build it is. This PC Master Race is killing the visa.
Not a bad rig, check out some other pictures on how to cable manage. Otherwise clean rig, good components.
Ehhhh, 6 core now isn't future proofing when your video card is 1 series behind about to be 2. Quad Core is just now coming around.
LOl I have a Z97a / 3.1 Starting to see it a lot in the new builds, which makes me happy. Loving mine!
Good pictures, good rig, digging it man!
Nice rig, except those books as monitor stands :)
Then you already know they aren't going to title it with a 300 series. I don't believe in waiting for better. If you want something unless you can confirm with 110% certainty it comes out tomorrow, I think you are chasing a dream. Get what your want, enjoy it and move on.
Really clean build for 1600, mighty impressive!
Why? Maybe next month, maybe September, maybe November, nobody knows when it is coming out.
Post some pictures of the actual computer. I can't stand close ups where I don't know wtf I'm looking at.
The CM Scout 2 is awesome. It fits all the things you need without the large size. It isn't very loud and just looks like a classy case. Thanks for the feedback, I do love my 980s. Running Battlefield Hardline at 199 FPS on Max Max / Ultra settings. My 144hz Monitor can't even keep up with it lol, but it looks ultra smooth.
Looking really nice bro. Loving the cable setup, where did you get the individual cable splitters between them? Good clean pics, overall A+ on everything.
For a semi budget PC, you did a real nice job of picking parts man. Nothing extreme and nothing cheap. Nice work, check out mine if you get a chance.
The fan nearest the rear exit fan isn't really doing much but forcing all hot air out of the case while pulling air from the previous fan and heat sink. The heat sink never gets hot and ultimately moving the fan I doubt would do any good. I'd also have to switch my memory dims to 2/4 instead of 1/3 if I wanted to do what your asking.
Just installed it myself, uploaded pics but probably can't see it much cause my case doesn't have much interior. It is absolutely awesome, works perfect, great coloring. Completely worth the 30 bucks.
Sorry for the late reply. The instruction manual said if it is being placed on the bottom of a case to place the fan upward like I have it. Top of the case fan downwards. I just followed instruction, plus it really doesn't put out much heat anyway.
The cables look like a Forrest of amazement, I could get lost in them. I like the build parts though, solid rig.
I am literally torn left and right about how to comment on this. The rig itself is gorgeous, looks really nice. The part choice, uhhhh you gotta get some better geek friends. I understand why you did what you did but logically it seems a piece of the puzzle was missing when making decisions. The final build gorgeous, parts are a -1.
I dunno man when you throw other options besides Taco Bell I get upset!
Yea, Ima make a Youtube build video so people can see that. Also hopefully get some good pics. I bought the Sennheisers after about 1 hour or reviewing. I was torn between the Astro A50, SteelSeries H and the Sennheisers. It is a hard choice, I love wireless but the Senns overall got a great review.
I can't get over how much shi# costs these days, seriously 300 bucks for a f'ing pair of mediocre headphones? LOL.
Might I add bro, you REALLY gotta get a new desk. About 250 shipped from Office Depot, get one around 36 inches deep, they are perfect for everything.
Yup looks laid out well, you explained each part well enough. I just finished my build, came to around 3800 with shipping and all parts. I will have my build list up soon once everything gets here.
This is my build, somewhat the same as yours.
That's why I got a 1080p BenQ 144hz monitor and 980GTX. This way I can ensure max out :)
GTA V uses right around 2.9GB of VRAM. SO it is a usable aspect in today's games on 1080p.
A lot of your comments are about "overkill" Nothing in this build was overkill, he bought streamlined proven parts with high reliability. I think besides the graphics card, this was a great build. Some people don't care about saving 45$ on a motherboard or memory when they are spending 2000 or more on a build.
Fantastic write up, this I enjoyed, you explained why you went with each part, other than it looked nice and what not. Cool cool.
