Just sell your current video card when you have a few hundred bucks laying around and upgrade it! The 770 is pretty much enough for any game at 1080p but, once GTX 8xx comes out, maybe it's worth it!

Maybe lack of skill or little experience/knowledge.

It's the guy's first build so it's awesome, IMO!

Only thing I'd do different is to put the cables behind the motherboard (as @MrRedbull mentioned) and also get a better CPU Cooler.

I might be wrong but using a $30 cooler on a 300$ CPU is not smart, IMO. I'd buy something better, at about $60~75.

You should really check out other cases!

Careful when running minesweeper, though.

Great build, congrats on making your dream come true!

I don't leave my computer on during the night because of loading time... it's usually mining, downloading, rendering something or me playing all night long (yeah, I'm a nerd. Aren't we all?)...

My PSU is pretty silent, it's the CM Silent M2, check it out if you can!

Thanks a lot for your reply.

I already have a Gigabyte GTX 770 4Gb ( GV-N770OC-4GD ) and a Silent Pro M2 720W.

Awesome. Good for you!

Thanks for your response.

Yeah, positive pressure is sure helping to keep the dust out.

Thanks a bunch for your time.

Platobob's Completed Build: Ragnarök

BaSkA 1 point 56 months ago

A lotta people say the front 200mm fan is silent and others don't. I guess it really depends on each one's ear, ambient sound, room size, etc...

If I am to replace the front 200m, I'll buy the Megaflow 200mm or 2 silent 140mm fans. I guess I will just wait and see if the front 200mm is that loud to my ears during the night. It probably will be because I'm picky on this but I'll just wait before buying the Megaflow before hand.

Thanks a lot!

skemble's Completed Build: The Pokeball

BaSkA 1 point 56 months ago

I'll start with a positive pressure then. If everything is cool, I'll leave it like that.

I know dust is a problem but I don't mind cleaning the computer every month or two... anyway, thanks a bunch.

Helped a lot. Thank you for your time, again.

Upgrxde's Completed Build: Superior Build.

BaSkA 1 point 56 months ago

I bet it is the best for $90 (I'm buying the non-windowed).

It has its issues but it's totally worth it (the front dust filter let's a lotta dirt inside through the sides), will buy the case and keep the 200mm fan then!

Thank you very much.

swaigo's Completed Build: Phanteks and Noctua Working Together

BaSkA 1 point 56 months ago

Uhm, I think I gotcha.

I won't switch the front fan at first, only the rear one. If I feel like it's too noisy, I'll buy something else. Thanks!

skemble's Completed Build: The Pokeball

BaSkA 1 point 56 months ago

I have no experience in controlling fans through software. All I know how to do is set them in the BIOS on a determined profile and leave them be. That's why I believe they will all be at 100% at all times.

However, if I plug all my case fans in the PWM hub and I use different headers for the hub and the CPU cooler, I guess I can find out what's the best speed and, as they will all go up or down together, my negative pressure will remain.

If it's not too much to ask, which one do you prefer: Positive or Negative pressure (for this case model)?

cbrown67's Completed Build: Phanteks Enthoo Pro Upgraded Build

BaSkA 1 point 56 months ago

How is that positive pressure working out for you? I will buy a build similar to yours and am trying to decide on that. I don't mind having negative pressure because of so many dust filters in the case, but I hate dust.

Thanks for the reply on the 200mm. I will either keep it, replace it for 2 120mm or 140mm fans or buy another 200mm quieter fan. However, if you really believe it is quiet, I guess my wallet thanks you!

TYVM!

I already use a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Browns. However, it doesn't have macro keys which I would very much like to have and the G710+ has those rubber grommets under the keys which is probably awesome. Planning to buy it and sell mine. Thanks!

CKAMP's Completed Build: Project Monochrome

BaSkA 1 point 56 months ago

I appreciate your explanation. I understand that it doesn't have to spin fast (in fact, the RPM is 800+-250 according to Phanteks website) so I believe you didn't think it was that loud (in a quiet ambient)?

I'm planning on a negative pressure air cooling for the case: Keeping the 200mm included fan as intake, one 140mm bottom intake and having 3 or 4 140mm fans outtake at the rear/top.

If it's not too much to ask, what do you think about this solution? And also, if you had to remove one of the drive cages, which one would you remove for the best air intake from the front fan(s)?

comenoplz's Completed Build: First Build

BaSkA 1 point 56 months ago

Question: Could you tell me how loud the 200m front intake fan is? I believe it's a 3-pin fan so you can't exactly control it that much.

At 100% speed, right next to you while using the computer, is it too noisy? At night, could you sleep with that big guy spinning?

I always have my headphones on, however, when I'm gaming and my girl is sleeping, I can't have much noise coming from the computer.

I'm decided to buy the Enthoo Pro, I just need to know if I should change the front intake fans for dual 140mm fans (or whatever else) because of the noise.

comenoplz's Completed Build: First Build

BaSkA 1 point 56 months ago

Agreed.

Unless that motherboard is somehow in the way of the radiator+fans, that pump is going to die soon. Then the CPU will keep shutting down, probably won't die.

Have you already ordered your new CPU cooler? Please get a NH-D15, or you might have some compatiblity issues because of your high profile RAM.

$5000 on a computer... Isn't spending a little less and upgrading every year more worth it? Oh wait, maybe you got the bucks to do that!

Nice rig.

Also, a PSU cover would be awesome!

Dukex1011's Completed Build: This is for you dad [First Time Build]

BaSkA 4 points 56 months ago

I don't get all that "crap keyboard/mouse"... If you need macros on your keyboard, his choice was awesome. Mamba fits so extremely well on everyone's hand and, even though it has all those "laser mouse issues", it's pretty awesome.

Seriously, sometimes I think whenever people see the name "Razer" or spending quite some money on peripherals, they just go all out nuts.

I agree that the headphones are really bad(Razer and headphones can't go on the same sentence), some research would've helped, but the mouse/keyboard hate does not proceed, in my experience.

sepnotic's Completed Build: Mushu

Only question is: Why get an i7 and 760 SLI instead of an i5 and 770 SLI?

Bad choice there IMO (for graphics performance) but nice build.

BaSkA 1 point 56 months ago

If the client ever does the SLI/CrossFire you mentioned, won't it be bottlenecked by the CPU, even though it's only a 760? Budget was so low :( !

DC4326's Completed Build: The Blue Ronin

BaSkA 2 points 56 months ago

I would totally buy a 2-3 year old GPU just until the one you want comes out and then sell the old one.

Question: Does the 1920x1080 resolution look good on a 23" display? I'm not sure if it's worth buying a 23"/24" 1920x1080 monitor to replace my 21.5" 1920x1080. It's an old monitor but the ppi will be worse...

I am planning to buy a RIG, amazingly similar to yours. However, I will stay away from liquid cooling and will buy a mechanical keyboard.

Congrats!

snguyen7891's Completed Build: Noctua Fan Overkill With The New King of CPU Air Coolers: NH-D15

BaSkA 1 point 56 months ago

I don't wanna be aggresive but, sometimes, number of fans doesn't necessarily mean good cooling.

Your case temperatures are definitely low because of the nice cable management, airflow and case model. However, I believe it is able to achieve equal or lower temperatures with less fans, which is cheaper and quieter.

I know Noctua fans are quiet but, even so, with about 6 or 7 fans it would be just as good and quieter.

If you even care, test the temperatures now and compare to the temperatures from the following layout: 2 front intakes, 1 bottom OR side intake, 1 rear outtake and 3 top outtakes. This way, you would be having a negative pressure (more air "movement" inside the case, lower temperatures, but more dust) and lower noise. Also, 100$ cheaper. Just as a side note, installing filters on every non-filtered fan hole works great. There are many magnetics ones.

Great rig, will be getting a similar one myself soon.
