I bought the 4790k in February because I needed a good cpu for rendering and then on June 29th, I bought the RX 480 because I had my eye on it for months!lol
Thanks a lot!
Great Build! It looks nice and clean!
I would probably route the gpu cable from the right side rather then from the bottom hole because it would look cleaner.
Just do not mess with the radiator screws because cooler master has had issues with the screws stripping so easily, but other then that, the cooler is great.
Good job for being smart with money because there are quit a lot of people that are waiting to buy a gtx 1080 and they don't even play a lot of crazy gpu intensive games or they still have a 1080P monitor and there not upgrading anytime soon. I ran across couple of guys who wanted to spend thousands of dollars on building a PC with the latest and greatest pc components and all they do is play battlefield 4 and surf the internet on 1080P.
I actually bought a gtx 970 SSC because a lot of gameplays on youtube showed that the card can use more then 3.5GB. I picked one up at microcenter for $254.99 a couple weeks ago and I tested it. I was playing black ops 3 and I was at 4000-4026MB the whole 20min without a single issue or dramatic FPS drops when looking at MSI afterburner. I guess the driver update in the past improved the Vram.
Thanks for the comment!
I thought about getting the white extension, but it might discolor after awhile. I might do it!
Thanks for the comment!
I actually had the gigabyte r9 380 g1 gaming and I compared the two, so that is why I made my decision on gtx 960. You would be surprised how good the 960 is, I got the extreme edition which is clocked the highest.
Thanks a lot for the comment!:)
Damnn that is pretty good! Thanks for letting me know! Nice Build by the way!
I know this is random, but do you know a website that trades digital games for other digital games?
I wanted to trade the wither 3 for battlefield 4!lol
I really don't know of any.
Thanks for the info. I like it because it does not cover up the two heatsinks on top of the z97s krait edition.
I have a 4790k as well and I was going to get the same CPU cooler, but I was afraid it was not going to cool it good enough, so I ended up going for the phanteks PH-TC12LS because it matchs my black and white build. How is the cryorig c7?
I went through a lot of cases and NZXT S340 is the best!
haha same here. Best color combo in my opinion.
haha I wish I could get a 980, but I did not have enough money. I do not even game a lot, I mostly do rendering. I just wanted a good GPU with 4gb of vram so I could play some games when I have free time. I also have a 720p monitor, so thats another reason I did not want a higher end GPU because it would be such an overkill.
