Yeah it's still holding up well. Obviously now you can buy a 250GB 850 Evo for an extra £20 but I'm still happy with the purchase I made

Still holding up strong, with the new release of GTA V on PC its being doing a solid 60fps on nearly maxed out settings which is good and the temps on this card are great as well with it not hitting the 70s at all

Sorry my bad it looks like there is one above it in the picture, I have never seen the top slot that low on mobo :o

Move the GPU up to the top x16 slot to get full bandwidth :)

Mines starts with 46 but it could be based on where you buy from at what time rather than the serial number but I may be wrong of course

Personally for me it has been great so far but ....

I read on reddit the other day is that this motherbooard has some kind of issue with the motherboard not powering on. Now I'm not sure if its just a bad set of motherboards from Asrock or if it's all the motherboards. For me so far i haven't had any issues and its been running fine for a good 2 months and no issues at all and from the posts on reddit the issue seems to occur within 6 weeks or so.

Just be aware of this as I don't want you to have the issue that other people are having.

Always nice to see some older builds on here. A description will help answer all the questions being asked and help explain part choices in the build

Went a little overkill on the PSU but I did the samething so I don't blame you. Though it is overkill it means you won't have to buy another one and it will not be under as much load

Enjoy your build :D

It's possible the parts were bought months before the build

but if not your point is valid since the GTX 970 out performs a GTX 780 and draws less power which would of allowed him to buy a smaller power supply as well

Yeah I agree that I don't need 850w but it means I won't have to upgrade to a new PSU anytime soon and the difference in price between 750w and 850w was so small i thought what the heck and got the 850w. Also since it will be drawing less power the PSU will run quieter

Cool I will take a look at that. I just prefer to have the fans running at a lower temp so that it keeps cooler which will help the lifespan

Thanks, I kind of wish the same thing about the Vapor-X cards since they are so pretty but I felt the 970 was the way to go for performance and the Strix actually looks very nice

like reoper6 said 850w was more than enough but I wanted to future proof my PSU and since it will not be under load much of the time the PSU will be quieter and it will provide plenty of room for SLI and OC

good to hear as I would feel really bad for you if you bought it recently. One thing to be aware of is that they are stopping the series so don't wait out too long

yeah i know I don't get it either, by doing the skip of the 800 series it just makes it more confusing but to be honest it isn't that big of a deal since it's only the name

Comment reply on NirvashEnd's Completed Build: TheVeryEnd

I think it was also due to the laptop 800 series so they are skipping it to avoid any confusion and going straight to 900 series

Problem with that MSI board is that it has a brown PCB so it looks horrible so it isn't really a great alternative if you were going for pure looks.

Asrock's new Z97 boards have been reviewed to be very good boards and it's possible your experience could of been unlucky or that they have improved their standards since then (like you said)

760W for 780ti SLI is a bit tight and this means you won't be able to overclock your CPU greatly.

I have decided to go with a 1000w since it will allow more head room in terms of adding more HDD's etc.

Thanks for all the replies

Cable management could be a bit better especially in this case where is is a breeze but apart from that you have a decent build

I feel a miss-match since there is a £190 case but a £115 GPU, you could have easily bought a mid-tower or something even smaller which would allow you to pump some more money into a better GPU

I could be wrong on what I'm saying like some these parts could be from your older builds but since there is little to no description I don't why you chose the parts you did

Putting a Mini ITX mobo in a Mirco ATX case would probably look abit out of place and silly. Micro ATX offer more expanability (in terms of RAM atleast)and the pricing isn't that different so why not go bigger I guess

and why only the X40 in a build where money doesn't seem to be a issue

Comment reply on finalxoxo's Completed Build: 350D with custom acrylic watercooling

Personally I would have gone with a bigger PSU wattage to allow for more head room. Even though it's platinum rated efficiency it's abit tight especially with 2 GTX 780's in there.

Apart from that good build and you did a nice job with the water cooling

He actually paid good prices for the cpu, mobo and ram so I can see why he bought them

but yes he could have maybe spend abit more on the gpu, however he may not be playing any demanding games as such which could be the reason for this
