I talked with Diamond and they haven't got a sample that they can't do measurements for it. But they're waiting to do one, if i send them my GPU. I might do that.

There's not a Titan X HOF though ;) The HOF is a custom PCB

Nice build, I'm looking for a block for the 980ti HOF, And i can't find one that's standalone, I'm kinda looking to do something like this.

If you know if/where i can get a block for the 980ti HOF i would be in love with you

I think he means the fact that you can get a z97 board for 100 dollars easily.

Does hackintosh even support dual GPU's? Other than that, in terms of dualboot a dual boot linux-windows system is pretty sweet aswell.

Yeah It's a great budget option in terms of airflow and features. I've build it myself one time, it's not too bard in terms of cabling, for sure doable. It's a nice quality case for the price for sure!

So nothing against your build it's decent for a first timer. Though I would done something like this. You would've had a much more straight forward upgrade path with the pentium into something like the i5. But this will probably last a good time for a 12 year old gamer. It'll play all casual games(minecraft, lol, dota whatever) at 1080p 60fps max settings probably. Depinding on what he's into it might be overkill. This no way a critique, Just wanna give you my point of view :)

And I've watched so many corsair psu's fail because of bad capacitors. Read it up the Corsair RM, CX and CS series are all really not that good. Only the HX(i),TX(M) and AX(i) are any good.

Never said i don't use them, most of my builds are from work - I don't chose the what goes in the machines. And I never said all PSU's. Reason why i don't like corsair cooling is simply the included fans. Because their fans are really nothing special, and the included are even worse than what you can buy from them.

So, this is first watercooling rig i expect. Personally i would tidy up the tubes some more, so the runs are shorter and no overlapping eachother, this is not pleasant to look at. The print on the window is cool for sure though. Many used some angled fittings and stuff like this that, that what really makes a watercooling build shine all the smalls things :)

I actually kind of like it. The pentium is sooo powerful for the price. Aslong it's overclocked it's a fantastic little monster. And one day, He'll still be able to get his hands on a used i7 for 100-150 dollars and upgrade, because right now the preformance needed to game from the proccessor, isn't that demanding. - But it's nice looking for sure. +1

Always get one powerful card. It'll save you some money in the long run. Depending on you do with your gaming build. I don't think 2 GTX 760 would be too happy with playing at 4k. And the 970 is just such a good card for the price.

Other than that, he'll probably also do some streaming and video editing, so a i7 is totally fine. - Though i agree with you on the case. It's terrible for the price, but customer wanted that case exactly so that's what i gave him. but I think you should get 970 instead of 2 760. It'll save you money in the long run when you eventually will need new GPUs. Always get a stronger single GPU setup instead of 2 mid tier GPUs.

It for a customer, he wanted it. It's merly my opinion of building in it. It looks neet Though I'll give it that. - but no i didn't i just looked out if everything would fit.

I mostly don't like review, because they don't talk about build quality mostly. And they don't put much attention to detail. It's mostly airflow, temperture and stuff like that. Acoustics ofcourse aswell. Maybe compatibility. Only reviewer i genuinly like is TinyTomLogan, because he has attention to detail in his reviews.

Ehmm not even an Auto OC tool would do that. It'll stop at around 1.250 or 1.225. I certainly hope he mistyped, because if he's really feeding the proccessor 1.9volt i wouldn't expect it even to boot.

No, unless you're overclocking, though it might affect stability and power delivery, that can cause crashes and what not.

You did overkill something like the PSU. - Also you can run higher than 1600mhz ram, You can easily run 2133mhz ram if you wanted to, but the processor is only rated for 1600mhz. And that only means that anything over is not sure it's stable. - But I have some 3000mhz ram that runs just fine 3000mhz on pretty much any high end board.

Other than i don't like blue LED fans, or generally LED fans It's a good build for an amazing price. Though mixing RAM can be a very bad idea. especially when they run different timings and speeds.

Good build for the price, though i would've done some stuff differently. I would've gotten another PSU. From a higher quality brand like XFX - Since you can get that for 60 bucks aswell, and they use much higher quality components, like japanese caps and stuff like that. Pretty much other than that. It's a good build +1

It's doable, but not really amazing. Though you can fit the cables behind the motherboard tray, tough you have to use the hard rive cage as a cable holder, as you can see in the pictures. But if you get the case for cheap like i did, It's good for the price i got it for.

Meh, i guess, but i would've gotten a EVGA G2 850watt PSU then, much cheaper, and as good quality. Though it's not 80+ platinum.
