Comment reply on m0user's Completed Build: High End Intel 8700k Couch Based PC Gaming Build

this build had so much potential, then you got an asrock board, gelid thermal paste, a sata m.2 ssd instead of an NVME (samsung evo SSDs are sata not nvme), a gigabyte GPU and an fractal case. your Kijiji ad is not truthful, there is lots of places this could be improved.

asus / MSI board, EVGA gpu, NVME SSD, NZXT or Phanteks case,

could also do with a TON of cable management, and moving the watercooler to the top of the case as an exhaust.

(offtopic: you value a 1080 at $400?!??!?! you'd knock 400 off for someone throwing in a 1080?!?!?!? a thousand dollar GPU? "i'll take that bu only at a 60% discount because reasons)

good luck selling that blade, buddy.

i like it. would have been nice to get RGB but i dont feel for the lack. keys feel good. Tactile, but not super loud about it.

im glad you like your system, but Quad SLI isn't being supported anymore by Nvidia. hence why you had such trouble making it work. some games (GTAV) wont even load when there's more than 2 way SLI enabled.

Be careful, Deepcool Pumps are very failure prone.

in what sense? temps max out at 60c after an hour of Prime95 at stock, Idle is like 34c, the coolers quiet.

speed wise i have no complaints about the 8320. its a little workhorse. :)

in my previous setup i had the 8320 up to just about 4.5 Ghz, a full 1ghz overclock (about a 28% increase in speed) at 1.4 volts.

I originally ordered the Razer H440 but NZXT cancelled the order due to an address mismatch followed by a screw up on there end (they thought they sent me a change of address email, but actually didn't)

So i got the regular H440 for half the price. but i think the white is cleaner looking anyways.

if you had read, i re-used the card to keep initial price down. im saving up to replace my 7770, but its FAR from a potato.

after some research i found out basically the same thing.

Intel does wreck AMD for Single threaded performance. however, the moment you start doing more than one thing with your computer, for example playing games, listening to music, streaming, in Vent/Skype/TS/Mumble, and have some tabs open in chrome / firefox, AMD's multi thread advantage takes over. and for me personally, i ALWAYS have skype and winamp open while i game, and i stream as well a lot. so in my personal situation, the AMD machine was the better choice. and as i stated earlier, the AMD cpu's are cheaper.

in regards to AMD vs Nvidea, Nvidea's Physx is the only reason it out preforms AMD cards. thats it. however if you are playing a game or using your video card for something that doesn't use Physx such as video compilation, bit coin mining, or any game that doesn't use Physx, its a pretty even show.

as a caveat to that, with the new AMD cards Mantle technology... AMD is pulling pretty much even with Nvidea again, in Mantle enabled programs (ex: BF4 which can use Mantle or physx). and again, AMD is cheaper. the R9290x is in the 600 range, the titans are still a full grand. and the R9 290x pulls pretty much the same as the titan, in comparisons that utilize Mantle (aka, not paid for by Nvidea)

you just really need to lay off the Intel worship. I wasn't getting an Intel.

PSU is semi modular. dunno if your 750w is. (and i have no need for 2/3 of a kilowatt.)

games mostly. but im not the "OMG EVERY SETTING MUST BE AT 120% MAXIMUM" type of person so this was within my budget, and is quite expandable imo.

Last 2 things i want for it are a Liquid CPU cooler and a String of white LED lights to highlight the inside without the glowing blue/red/green (imo) tackiness
