Description

Way overblown for what I'll probably actually use it for (mostly development under Linux). But it felt damn good to build.

Go Linux! What Distro are you planning on using?

I just installed Ubuntu-Gnome 14.10 last night. Haven't had time to do much with it yet though.

Nice! Ubuntu is what I'm planning to use as my main OS. Spending $80+ on something I'm probably only going to use to game? No thanks, I'll stick to Linux thank you very much :)

How is that 212 evo working? From my understanding the 4790k should run cooler than yours because it has less cores yet people were still saying the 212 evo does not cut it to keep that thing cool :/

The 212 EVO is an awesome CPU cooler. I don't think it matters what CPU it is.

Are you 100% sure? I'm thinking of upgrading to a H100i because half the reviews of the 4790k say it gets really hot and one even said that their evo was not enough. I appreciate your imput :D

As long as you aren't going for 4.3ghz + overclocks you should have plenty of headroom before you start getting too hot!

So if I didn't plan on messing with oc at all the 212 evo will do me fine with some thermal paste?

yup, best air cooler on the market, even beats out lower-end water cooling. If your not even overclocking you won't even need it... Don't spend the money if there's no reason to imo

im not exactly 100% sure. you might want to upgrade to an h100i. ive read a lot of good reviews about both. you should go with the h100i. probably safer.

It gets very hot I just bought one two days ago since it was on sale an evo should be able to handle it as long as you aren't doing any crazy overclocks, but the h100i may be worth the purchase if you plan to overclock to like 4.7 ghz. Even without overclocking the 4790k by itself turbo boosts to 4.4 ghz." So it gets hot.

I just finished the hardware build, haven't really gotten the system to stretch its legs yet or done any measurements. Not planning on doing any overclocking, so from everything I've read the 212 should be sufficient. I did add a second fan to it though, to make sure I'm getting plenty of airflow across the fins.

Why two seperate 1TB drives? A single 2 TB drive would have cost less.

Maybe RAID of some sort

The dev work I'm doing does tons of disk I/O (proprietary financial database) so I can get better throughput with two disks working in parallel. 2TB worth of SSDs would've been a budget buster.

Yeah, there's definitely some sag there. That pic was taken just after I had plugged in the last few wires for the first time, I've since cleaned up the cable routing nice and tidy. Still looking into the best solution for the GPU sag.
