Description

This build now has my r9-280x gpu in it since I bout a gtx 980. My dad doesn't really use this computer at all which kind of upsets me almost always uses his laptop. His laptop specs: Dell XPS M1330: SATA 2, Samsung 840 evo 250gb,4gb ram. BTW built it out of my own pocket he did buy the monitor though. I got him the Corsair Strafe keyboard and the Logitech mouse because i think everyone should have a mechanical keyboard, that and they last a life time. I re-took the photos using a Nikon D3300 DSLR camera.

Let me know what you think of the new pictures and the build.

I did have to re-save all the pictures to a slightly lesser quality because they were too big to upload and the 8th picture i did a small edit to the floor.

I sleeved all the red and black cables from scratch.

Part Reviews

CPU

Decently fast cpu, good onboard graphics.

CPU Cooler

Very quiet its the only thing I can hear in the system and does a great job at cooling the processor.

Motherboard

im still a little hesitant on this motherboard I do like Gigabyte but this seems a little on the cheap side would have preferred a better chipset and more usb ports. The pci slot has a very poor unlock.

Memory

Very fast reliable ram Extremely stable at 2400mhz did memtestx86 and it passed with no errors.

Storage

great SSD I feel like the chipset is holding it back though even though its SATA 3.

Storage

great drive specially for a home user.

Video Card

great gpu fast and decently quiet,plays most games at max above 30 fps

Case

gorgeous case this is my favorite case. I was choosing this over my phantom 820 case but I already bought my Blu-ray drive. The finish is very delicate i scratches easily and i would only use water to clean it.

Power Supply

good psu bronze certified and its even modular.

Operating System

well i had to have it pretty much it.

Monitor

good monitor but weak speakers.

Keyboard

great keyboard very large font and has lighting effect software

Mouse

good mouse had some connection issues with it but only with my dads, i think it has something to do with the motherboard, but it does work.

Picture quality still wasn't too great for me :-/ Still a very nice build... A very good case for more budget parts though... Great cables but just a shame your dad doesn't use it much... At least you got the fun of building it! +1 from me :-)

I agree the picture quality doesn't seem the best but i have the lens that comes with it, i think that could be the problem.

Sucks that your dad doesnt appreciate this beast.

blaine244 submitter 7 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

he uses it more now but still uses his laptop. Funny part is its even quieter when n the laptop is at 100% which is common wit it being a 2.4ghz core 2 dup dual core.

+1 on your build. Nicely done and looks great.

Try to not be too upset with your dad. Is it possible he doesn't understand the time and tech you put in this machine? I'd wager he's never seen the garbage that is a store bought prebuilt.

You should take it up with your dad about being upset that you feel he doesn't appreciate it. You might be surprised by what you learn. Maybe he will learn how you expressed your appreciation for him through your work on this pc. Good luck. Hoping for the best for you.

Wow and he uses an dell laptop most of the time? Ridiculous. You should give it to someone who would appriciate it more.
