Awesomeking753's Completed Build: My first build (had previous experience with prebuilts)

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 24 months ago

Tip: turn some lights on when you take pictures. Nice build

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 30 months ago

Wow you built my dream build, man. If you move some of those final product pictures to the front, and maybe get some sleeved cables, you could have a featured build on your hands. Absolutely awesome build.

Awesome PC and desk! How much did the desk run you?

Yeah, I picked up the mark 1 off amazon for 210 back in June, I wouldn't pay 240 for it. I'm thinking I probably will go for it the next time I feel like splurging.

Thanks! I really like the Mark 1 with its armor, but I have not installed the 40mm fans in it, so I couldn't tell you. I installed the MB into the case and then I saw the fans and decided it wasn't worth taking it out again. LOL I feel like the Mark S is a bit overpriced for what it is (no armor or anything). If I didn't care about money I would have gone with the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII Formula with all its armor and LED goodness. B) I am really considering getting some carbon Cablemod cables but idk if it's worth 100 bucks.

TMatthews 1 Build 2 points 33 months ago

Oh, definitely go with some cable combs. You could get a nice black and blue back plate for that gpu, too

Train those cables, man. otherwise +1 for a great build

Alext3hgreat's Completed Build: First time build

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

Sweet build. +1 Are you wanting to game in 1440p? If so I'd go with the Acer XB271HU. I have it, got it scratch and dent from the Acer Recertified Store for 450. Runs like a dream. I'd also get a back plate for that 1070.

I can play games at 1440p 144hz with my 1080....

TMatthews submitter 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

Thanks mate! I +1ed your build a couple weeks ago! LOL yours is the bigger brother with the AIO and 6700k.

TMatthews's Completed Build: Lord Snow

TMatthews submitter 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

Thanks! That's the direction I've been leaning.

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

you can easily get 100 fps in games on 1440p with the gtx1080. I'd get a new monitor or else you might as well have gotten a gtx1070.

luislikespie's Completed Build: first ever pc build buying a gtx 1060 later what can i expect? gameing wise

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

The fact that you went with last generation components with the z97 platform( cpu, motherboard, memory) and you didn't save any money, in fact you may have spent more than it would have been to buy z170 components. Not to mention the power supply as I mentioned above.

EVGA P2 850W = $135 EVGA G2 650W = $90

Sorry, only $45. There's no way you need 850W.

TMatthews 1 Build 5 points 33 months ago

Can I ask why you went 4690k and not 6600k? You probably could have saved some money, and holy that psu is overkill. I would have opted for an EVGA 650W G2 and used the 60 bucks to get an ssd.

abalducci94's Completed Build: A Slight Upgrade

TMatthews 1 Build 2 points 33 months ago

I have the 1080 Strix and the acer xb271hu. You will not regret it. +1

mabeosuna82's Completed Build: Bessie Noctis Hero

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

Ahh interesting. You learn something new everyday, I feel like you're still not utilizing the full power of that gtx 1080 though. With the price point of all three of those monitors being close to 600 dollars, I would think you would be better off buying a 1440p ultra wide like a refurbished LG 34UM95 for 600 bucks or if you can spring for it an Acer X34 with gsync. Maybe get the x34 instead of doing the other upgrades you were thinking about. You will be amazed by it if you've never seen it in person, would be fantastic for your driving simulators.

mabeosuna82's Completed Build: Bessie Noctis Hero

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

Doesn't make sense why you would output 1440p to 1080p monitors...

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

Did you attach the antennae?

mabeosuna82's Completed Build: Bessie Noctis Hero

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

Ah I was going based off the monitors you have listed in your parts list. Those are 1080p 60Hz monitors.

mabeosuna82's Completed Build: Bessie Noctis Hero

TMatthews 1 Build 2 points 33 months ago

I believe a Strix 1070 would run those 1080p 60 Hz monitors just as well as a 1080 would. Might as well save a couple hundred with the 1070, or just stick with the 980 you've got there. Seems it would run over 60 Hz in 1080p on most games.

I would not upgrade your RAM, memory is memory and those Fury sticks are just fine unless you're looking for better aesthetics with the TridentZ.

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

only reason it's under 1500 is because he didn't include the price of the gpu

Did you paint the red pieces?

My 2005 Razr could take better pictures than this... What's with the one good picture of your power supply?

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

+1 for your username(TOOL?) and just everything about this build. I have this motherboard and love it, still waiting for the 1070 to post my build. Man I want the x34 but the price is insane!

Can you give us a step by step on how you research your parts?

Where did you get those company logo badges? The ones where you SSD is mounted.

seanbarkley's Completed Build: SB 3V0LV

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

Awesome, Thank you! I realized the front fan that was blowing into the PSU shroud was in the way, so I moved it up and fed the cables through the hard drive cage.

seanbarkley's Completed Build: SB 3V0LV

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

I just built in this case. How did you manage to route the cables to the SSD on the PSU shroud like you did?

Beautiful Build!

Zedok's Completed Build: $1400 Gaming PC [First time build]

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

A little overkill with that PSU and like the others said you should get a z170 motherboard with that 6600k CPU. Nicely built though. Only so much you can do with no power supply shroud and a semi modular PSU.

TMatthews 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

This is awesome! Well done.
