it wasnt that bad but the temp things never worked in the first place, my build never got hot so it worked for the time being, cheap case tho.
i also used the n520 in my first build...lol
yep cable management is a must.....helps with cooling and such. great looking build other than that.
on your cold caths you have that ugly blue box, take some electric tape and wrap it, pop holes where the breather is and it is now black and doesnt show up as good as that ugly blue does.
i would ditch the 16gb (4x4) and go with 16gb(2x8) so that it can give you options to advance with more ram.
other than that, not bad
what do you need the wireless adapter for? Can you not be wired?
can we get some more inside pics? nice selection i agree.
couldve saved a couple by going with the z87 sabertooth mb and less ram (you dont need 32 "2666", you wouldve been fine with 16gb "1600" and scaled the psu to about 850 and you couldve sli'd the 780 ti for the same price.
also i wouldve just gotten a ssd for 155 with 250 gb and ditched the dual 2tb for a single 3tb for cheaper....
nice build but couldve done more research into your parts and prices.
im running almost the same set up with sli'd 780's on a 850w psu
just an fyi
Yep....just hadn't done it yet....thanks tho
new pics are up, it looks more orange in the photos but its red.
no problem, ill take some more tonight and ill reply to this when they are up, yes i have cold cathodes in there as well. I ran the led strip around the sides panel and have both the cathodes around the h100i rad at top.
kinda close to the monitors tho for me, i bought this for my first rig.
yeah no studders or anything, working like a charm so far
no prob, i have had a louder case, that mid tower in the first pic is loud as hell.....lol this one with everything going is quiet.
That piece your asking about is a gpu support bracket that comes with the haf-x case.
this case is very quiet overall, i am in an empty room and sitting right next to it and i keep checking to see if it is still on...lol
the case i really had a hard time finding one that i really liked, didnt really matter on the cost at the time, i mean i didnt wanna spend 300 on a case but just alot of the ones i looked and saw i wasnt feeling at all, so your right on the personal thing.
i wasnt sure if i wanted a closed loop or go full custom but i decided to do a closed due ive never done a custom, maybe next year when i get a new computer...lol j/k
honestly with how i ran the gpu pci-e cables is the best route i chose, it doesnt affect airflow, it maybe uncustomary to see it ran this way but it gets the job done well and it also doesnt look half bad.
Btw those cables are flat and i didnt want a huge mess blocking my airflow into the gpu's, main reason i ran them the way i did.
with the case closed they just lay on the lid
yep, she saw the bill....lol
how, some of the pics are out of order, i tried to get them as close as in order as i could, if your talking about the gpu cords, that was the best route and they dont affect airflow at all as the lay flat up against the side when the door is closed.
thanks, thats what i thought, are you able to split the desktop picture to 3 different photos or are they stuck on 1 single?
i know right, i went over my "budget", i started off at 1500 and ended up at like 2900....lol
op, nice build +1
not a bad price on the i7, i just paid 310 for mine......dont let people get you down....sometimes people just say crummy things to make them feel better......also you did mention everything they "mainly" were down voting you about....so i upped it for ya.
1st: tidy those wires more "just a bit" for better airflow
2nd: im not sure if your oc'ing or not but i would recommentd getting an aftermarket cpu cooler....well worth it even if your not "oc".
you've got the bug now so hold on tight to your wallet as it tends to open real quick.....lol
how do you have your 3 monitors wired in? your using the same port for all of them correct? hdmi? dvi?
with adapters of course
Nice build, wire management should be next on your list......try to route all the wires you can behind your back case panel....think each wire through before you do.
My first build was alot like this......nice and simple.....lol
now about your wire management, anyway to tuck those wires a bit more?
