Description

I built this PC a week ago and decided to put this up. This build is for gaming, programming, etc. I slightly overclocked the CPU from 3.4 to 3.8 GHz, even though I have tried a 4.0 GHz clock and it worked, I put it down to 3.8 GHz to keep it running a little cooler. The monitor in the middle can be found at http://www.bestbuy.com/site/23-ips-led-hd-monitor/8176078.p?id=1218864997552&skuId=8176078&st=ENVISION%20I2367F%2023%22%20IPS%20LCD

CPU: No problems here, slightly overclocked to 3.8 GHz

CPU HSF: Easy to install, great cooling. It is larger than I thought it would be, but my case had no problem fitting it.

Motherboard: Great motherboard, supports overclocking. It took NCIX a week to ship and process it, but it's all good.

RAM: Nothing special here, just 8 gigs of RAM

HDD: Good HDD, haven't had any problems yet

GPU: I love it, it runs BF4 with an average of 75 FPS

Case: Great case, includes dust filters to keep the dust out of my PC

Case Fan: Just a cheap $3 fan to install in the other front fan slot

PSU: 600 watts, plenty to drive this PC. Semi-modular which I like a lot.

ODD: Nothing special, just a cheap optical drive I will use time to time

Keyboard: Love Cherry MX Browns, I am never going back to any other keyboard now! Small issue with it though, if I unplug and plug it back in, it will glitch and become completely unresponsive, which I have to fix by restarting my whole PC.

I see it too. Who said 770's had to follow the rules of PhysX?

(See what I did there :D)

Great build maybe later you should upgrade to an ssd for much faster performance. Also good job on the cable management a modular psu was a good choice.

Nice build, mate. Good part selection and cable management (although I'd take in a bit of the slack from those cables up top). I just woke up, so a creative name is out of the question from me...

Just curious what your actual 3DMark 11 score is (which is what that box is for), not one from Vantage or Ice Storm, etc. Putting one of those scores in there is kind of like comparing a Formula One lap time at Donnington to a Nascar lap time at Daytona, if you catch my drift.

3D Mark would crash after a few tests, here is my 3D Mark test link: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/2317979

Well, that brings up another issue. Providing it was installed correctly, your system should have no problems running 3DMark 11. Have you run into any other instability issues?

It did say that it crashed because it "lost focus" so it isn't a instability issue, probably just a program messing with it.

Please remove your incorrect extreme test score, otherwise people are going to think they can build the most awesome gaming machine with a 770 and i5.
