this is the recommended config for anyone wondering
Hey thank you, I will change them out when I get home!
Its very nice. Although on an all black screen the four corners have a yellow tint. Is that your experience?
Lol "If i were you, I would exactly double the cost of this build with a GTX 970."
They are $300+
Hey nice build, I just did a similar one with the same monitor.
Can I ask a question, are your speakers as bad as mine? I know they are only two watts, but they sound like someones iphone earbuds turned up too high.
My audio is coming from the displayport input, luckily the headphone passthrough works fine.
Just an update - I ran FurMark to test thew heat of this GPU and case configuration.
The fan configuration I had at first was:
1 Chassis intake fan at the bottom
1 Chassis fan exhaust running through the liquid cooler radiator on the side
1 CPU fan which is actually the fan pump in the cooler
CPU temps were ice cold but the GPU was running hot in FurMark (83c, hot for my tastes in this build)
So I added an exhaust fan above the GPU on the top of the case (hot air rises) using a Y splitter from the Radiator exhaust fan to the top exhaust fan because I ran out of motherboard fan inputs. Voltage and wattage should not be a problem.
After rerunning FurMark with the new fan, the GPU did not reach over 75C after 10 minutes on a full burn in test. So I would say that is successful. The best part is these fans are BARELY audible. The loudest ones are the GPUs which are still pretty quiet.
How is your rig in terms of power? The 380x's drop below $200 every so often(I don't recommend the 380 as I believe it is less future proof in terms of DirectX 12 support)
The reason I got this card is because its highest performance to cost/heat/power consumption of the modern cards. For 1080p gaming this thing is pretty good.
Compared to you existing card this thing is about 100% better in performance (http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Radeon-HD-7570-vs-AMD-R9-380X/m9639vs3532)
I recommend it but still struggle with the decision not to go with the 290+ type card, but that would change the whole build (cooling, power supply, would not put in micro Atx case etc)
There is a new generation of cards coming out this year so I'll wait till then and reevaluate.
This card outperforms the 960 in every way http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-960-vs-AMD-R9-380X/3165vs3532 but is $50 more for a reason
Happy to include any benchmarks if you guys request it, just comment here.
What size fans? 120 or 140?
and thanks for the info, using this case for a build
