Build

BEAST-PC

by apeltekian

Description

This build was my first build, it took me a good 6 months to decide on what to use, the i7-4790k was a last minute decision due to its release in June, but overall this is an excellent gaming machine. Sorry about the photos, I was using my Moto G XT1034 to take them.

If I got a dollar for every "Beast" PC, I'd be able to fill my gas tank to full. Hows that i7 treating you? I love it

Best processor I have ever used.

why do you need 32 gigs of ram and an i7 for gaming? Do you have other uses, if not this is totally a waste of money... please post some photos of the inside. Also don't understand the H55

I initally had 8gb of ram, but my friend gave me 32gb of ram.

Why 32GB? Also, if you had just got a single 240-256GB SSD rather than two smaller sized ones, it would have been cheaper, and you could spend the rest of the money on a faster SSD or a better liquid cooler. Sadly, the pictures are dark and I can't really see the build all that well.

Sorry about the pictures, couldn't find my data cable for my camera. And I initally had the 64gb ssd sandisk, but my friend gave me the 120gb evo ssd, he also game me the 32gb of ram.

That's a good deal on those SSD's and RAM then, thanks for the clear up.

how is the 230T performing (sound level, cooling?)

apeltekian submitter 1 Build 2 points 54 months ago

Its excellent, very roomy and semi quiet.

take some time and do some cable management.... there is no excuse on such a case

apeltekian submitter 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

Many of the cable are too short to run in the back

pegotico 2 Builds 2 points 54 months ago

just buy extensions which go for 2 or 3 bucks each....that will make your build look much much better

All of the scattered cables are either thermal leads for my fan controller or my PSU cables, My PSU claims to be modular but I believe it is semi-modular because the CPU 8 pin power and the motherboard 24 pin are built in
