Larger coolers dissipate more heat into the room, and it doesn't say that there is an i7 in the parts list.
Unlocked CPU with a non-overclocking board and stock cooler. Not really a good combo. Also the PSU isn't very good, especially for the price you paid. You could get a decent EVGA G2 650 watt fully modular unit for that price. This looks pretty good in all other aspects.
This is amazing. I love it!
I love this build. Very clean and well executed. I don't often see pink computers.
You might want to flip that PSU over. Other then that this is an amazingly clean build. I love it!
Looks great! Noctua has great silent coolers and are some of the best around. Some of their high end offerings do as well as a 240mm AIO liquid cooler.
Looks janky to say the least.
This build is very clean and nice, although you could have saved the WD tax and bought a Hitachi 1 TB drive (Hitachi has a better failure rate too, at 1.4% vs 5.7% in a five year delta) and used that money to get a better power supply. Other than that, your build is very clean and nice. I like it a lot!
Hah, I was right about your profile picture then. I've already played Undertale. 780Ti classifieds are going for 300 dollars on ebay. If you're lucky, then you can get one with a waterblock and backplate for not much more. Also, with the recent price drops of DDR4, you should be able to fit a little more RAM in your build, or use the extra money to buy something else, like a larger SSD. Good luck with your build and studies!
Purple builds are rare! Looks great. Happy wife happy life, as they say.
Awesome! The color scheme is badass. I love it! The custom filters are pretty froody too.
Came to this after finding your profile on something else on this site. This looks awesome for a Q6600 build! Also, your profile picture looks familiar, like some sort of deranged flower. Correct me if I am wrong though. We also share the ambition to become a computer hardware engineer! If you have a new build by now, I'm sure people would love to see it.
I use the johnnyguru tier list. The G2 is a tier 1.
Proof or it didn't happen. PSU's are placed into tiers based on quality of internal components and construction.
Looks great! Love the GPU choice. IF you ever want to game at 1440p or 1600p, then Crossfire would be a great option for increased GPU performance, coupled with the massive amount of VRAM, you should be froody! As for the rest of the build, it looks amazing. I love the colors. Are you going to overclock?
Should have gone SSC 970.
Looks awesome! I love Fury X builds.
Thanks! Looks amazing.
Sandy bridge is a great architecture, I know someone who got their i7 2600K to 5.0 GHz on water at 1.3v.
Good on you for building your mom a new computer! My school used to have those 10-year-old computers. So awful. Pentium 4's with 256 MB of DDR RAM. Don't even get me started on the boot times. Then we got Dell Optiplexes with 2nd gen i5's, which they promptly replaced with 4th gen i5 Optiplexes 3 months later. I was greatly confused.
Looks killer! You might want to re-route that ATX power though. The H440 has great cable management capabilities and you don't want to miss out on that. +1 for awesome build, color scheme and reginald.
Ditto to TiGGa, love this build! You might consider getting a Hue+ if you want some colour changeable lighting.
64 GB of RAM. I'll just take some of that off your hands. JK, awesome build. Looks nice!
Pics or it didn't happen
Get your cables under control and you're grand. Good wire management is great for making sure you have optimal airflow into your case. Fanless coolers are cool too. +1
It says steamer not streamer.
Awesome! I love the use of the Xeon.
Looks cool! Love the white/green/black scheme.
Yeah, the 300 series isn't much improved from the 200 series, but there are some noticeable improvements on the high end, especially with the VRAM speeds and more of it.
Love the NZXT Hue mod! PSU isn't the best of the EVGA series, but it is great for the use since this build is rather low power and you aren't really overclocking. Noice!
Love the name! Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman into space. Awesome computer too!
If you need/want a GPU upgrade, Sapphire has made some orange 300 series cards. Great, clean build. Orange is very uncommon. Love it!
Good on you for getting rid of that Diabolotek PSU. It will literally blow up if used for too long. Nice build!
Looks good! Nice build.
Awesome! The blue on green looks sick! +1
CQC is correct. Hitachi is more reliable than WD and Seagate.
EVE framecaps itself. And thanks! I also limit most games framerates to the refresh rate of my monitor to save resources because i do lots of background tasks.
Awesome! If you want to SLI in the future 780Tis are 300 dollars on ebay right now
Buy one and get another later! 960's are usually great overclockers too, so you may be able to get 980 performance out of 2 4 GB 960's overclocked.
Wattage and efficiency aren't everything.
Dual 960 SLI is great performance, between 970 and 980, if you want to get a 960, and you want to SLI in the future get the 4 GB version. Or you could go with dual 380X's. You will need a power supply upgrade if you are going SLI/Crossfire though. EVGA G2 units are great tier 1 units.
PSU isn't great, you probably will want to replace it if you are overclocking, much less upgrading to a 970.
Awesome! You gonna upgrade to quad channel memory any time soon?
Glad to help!
Quite uncommon compared to blue red white and black builds.
Looks awesome! That CPU can easily hit 4.5-4.7 if you play with it a little bit. Dual 960 SLI is uncommon.
That power supply is a Tier 3, if you were wondering, not the best, but not horrible either. Good on you for using eBay! The name is awesome.
