I personally think the S340 and H440 are way over used nowadays. I have always liked the Phantom series from NZXT when they launched it first a few years back, so i would go with the Phantom. Or a Phankteks case :)

The case came with two green LED fans in the front originally. I swapped em to the blue Corsair ones. Thermaltake has RGB fans called the Riing series though.

No decent pink cases; Phanteks is a great brand and this case has RGB lighting including pink. Added some RGB fans as well. I am dearly sorry for your loss... :/

It works great! Worked awesome and kept my temps low with an overclock on the APU I had. I am still using it today on my i7 6700K and it's been wonderful keeping it nice and cool even with a moderate overclock of 4.6Ghz. It's always great to meet other fellow female techies, especially on here. Needs to be more!

Please do not get a Deepcool PSU, for your safety and build too. They are on the lowest tier of PSU ratings. They are ineffecient, cheap capacitors and can be a safety hazard with such cheap inner components.

For the games you play, the R9 380X is more than adequate and will be for the next few years. This will last for a few years without having to upgrade. Maintenance would just be the usual dusting and re-applying fresh thermal compound on your cpu every few months. Only thing I'd change is maybe the case at some point, there's a bunch of great quality, quiet, spacious, good airflow and good looking cases in the $60-$80 range but that's more down to personal preference.

Here's what I'd do. I live near the OP Micro Center as well.

This motherboard and cpu is at that store for the prices I put, plus ya know our stupid 9% sales tax. But if you buy them together there, they will take $20 off. They also price match as well. For your budget and needs this will be more than perfect. :)

The NZXT Guardian was my first case a few years back and to be honest it is by far the cheapest made NZXT case they have still since it's 5+ years old. A frustrating case for beginer builders. It also has poor airflow and no space for cable management. I'd steer away from that and go with something else but that's just my experience with it.

Here's what I'd change. Not a overpriced cpu cooler at all, and the Cryorig H7 still hits nice temps on good overclocks and is quiet. An i5 and 8GB is still plenty for today's standards of games, plus the i7 6700k is still overpriced at retailers at the moment, especially for a cpu that is literally only a 6% difference in performance in games. Tier one PSU Added an SSD for boot drive, programs, slow load time games, etc.

Has a nice upgrade path. Also a SSD as a boot drivr and for any slow load time games, apps, etc. Then you could add a 1TB HDD for mass storage later.

That is very true. That's definitely one reason why the i7 6700K is still over priced everywhere, because they know people will pay for the only company that offers something in that spec/performance category. That's one reason also why I'm looking forward to AMD's new lineup. Been too long!

Forum Topic "$1,000 Max Gaming PC Build"

violetrainxx 2 Builds 2 points 35 months ago

Thats so I heard too. I am too excited to see what AMD has to bring to the table this year. The AM3+ socket has been far too lonely and old now it needs something new. AM4 I'm definitely ready. Always nice to have some upcoming new budget options for some upcoming builds! :)

Yeah to me I just see it as no overclocking because one, only few motherboards allow it for this chip, and two it truly is just meant to be stock clocked. :P And no prob! I just find this chip a bang for the buck for what it offers.

Forum Topic "$1,000 Max Gaming PC Build"

This Xeon CPU doesnt overclock at all, hahaha. The poster asked for a similar or better build compared to specs of a laptop which is a lower clocked mobile locked i7 at 2.6Ghz. This Xeon is essentialy a locked i7 with no Intel integrated graphics which he wouldn't need anyway, at the same price of current and last gen unlocked i5's but will be getting better performance. Check out any build on here based off this CPU, it's a great deal price to performance if you don't want to overclock.

In my experience with them and research, I haven't ran into any issues with compatibily, Intel XMP, etc running a Xeon on a consumer board with non ECC ram. Same based off of builds on PCPP with the same Xeon/non ECC ram and their experience/review. Nothing but smooth sailing in my experience.

You don't need ECC memory on a non server board.
