So far only half of the parts have arrived. The 100R was first along with the power supply. This allowed for some forward work on cable management which due to my undeniable O.C.D. is pretty paramount. This is my first build as I am only seventeen and it is also the first thing I have bought from my work money. Remainder of parts due on Monday. I will finish the build then and upload photos and benchmarks soon after along with some temps and overclocking speeds. [EDIT]
So, all of my parts arrived on Monday. I spent three hours assembling it and had it booting after the fourth but that's when the problems started.
The problem was that i was using an old copy of windows 7 from my old laptops hard drive. Sadly this copy was "locked" and was unmovable so I was unable to put it onto my SSD. This forced me to buy a new copy of windows 8.1. After that it was all fixed and all i had to do was assign the different jobs to the different storage devices. All that's needed now is the new monitor which should arrive in the next few days.
Only did a standard overclock on the CPU up to 4.2GHz and overclocking on the GPU was done by GPU boost 2.0 giving me a pretty decent core clock increase.
Processor is fast and runs really cool while running games at ultra settings at 1080p with my hyper 212 Evo.
Keeps processor at under 65C at ultra 1080p. Only problem is mounting it is tougher than is necessary.
Looks great.Great for overclocking. Great fan settings. Overall easy to setup and easy to make everything work properly. A bit pricey though.
What can I say its just ram.
Really fast boots with this running only my O.S.
Pretty fast as far as hard drives go. Great price.
Great card runs cool and runs every game ive thrown at it at a steady 60 FPS at 1080p Ultra. Fans don't turn on when its at idle so that's really handy.
Great looking.Great price. Cable management is an absolute *****. takes a lot of cable ties and brute force to get it locked down.
Fan is extremely quite. Slight coil whine but nothing major(Can't be heard over case fans when they're on).Cables are great, keeping the case looking clean and tidy.
