What is this build used for?
Yes I know, but we partitioned the HDD so that the pain may be less severe
Yeah, I actually just read this article: http://techreport.com/review/27436/the-ssd-endurance-experiment-two-freaking-petabytes
Yeah, had a few problems with initial set up, needed this fix: http://heresjaken.com/the-computer-restarted-unexpectedly-or-encountered-an-unexpected-error-during-installation-of-windows/
Possibly a motherboard issue? I'm not sure. Also, there seems to be a clicking noise coming from the PSU, if it continues, he might RMA it.
An aftermarket cpu cooler may be bought in the future, but until the temps get high, he's probably not too worried about it.
Why the 250GB HDD? You could've gotten 1TB for $20 more. Also, the 270X completely outperforms the 660 and it's cheaper.
...And did you really pay $475 for the OS?
And no processor?
Yeah -- read comment for Hman about the cable management
My roommate wasn't interested in getting an SSD due to their shortened lifespan. And bluRay wasn't really necessary.
Actually I was trying to deal with all the cables and one of my roommates were getting annoyed, I just said **** it and let him do the rest. XD
I might fix it later but it's not my computer.
I hear that WD black is more performanced based and better made, that's why we went with that.
It's just a concept for now. Nothing planned, my current build is doing just fine for its purpose.
Well thank you for the link
I don't want this computer to be liquid cooled. And what is wrong with the current PSU?
So if he had a small budget why would he buy expensive RAM
Why spend extra money on nonsense 2133 mhz RAM when he could save up for a gpu
I hope you understand that the unit "hertz" is one cycle per second. When you say one hertz per second, you're saying one cycle per second per second.
Personally, I would've went with 1080p monitors but I guess you had to fit a budget?
Also, how's that mouse? I'm going between it and the coolermaster Recon
May I ask why you went with that HDD and SSD?
I would've went with a 1 or 2 TB 7200 drive with a 500 GB SSD, but that's just me. Cool build
If you read the description you would know that the $260 covers everything I bought from Newegg. The PSU, monitors, Optical drive, and case.
Just making sure people aren't thinking I legit spent over $200 on a 300W PSU XD

Wow, awesome budget build! I built a similar one on a similar budget and yours looks a LOT better. Great job
Cheap, 80+ bronze certified
I have a similar build on queue for August!
Manages an office, uses a lot of outlook and excel mostly. The dual screens are helpful for pulling up multiple documents for comparison, copying, and whatever else she does.
No problems so far, but the only graphic intensive thing that she does is candy crush so I'm sure haswell has that in the bag! haha
You also have to keep in mind that efficiency decreases as you go to 100% load. About 87% for good PSUs
You could've gotten a 3TB drive for less than $150, I would've switched the budgets on the two drives. Other than that its a solid build.
Really? Never seen the Z22
That's in BTC
^ About .004
Doing it for fun not for profit.
I am mining scrypt-based coins that are automatically converted to bitcoins within the pool.
I'm mining in a multi-coin pool. It mines the most profitable coin at a certain time. Calculating this through difficulty and value.
I don't pay for electricity and I'm not looking for profit. Just fun.
I'm getting about .004 - .005 per day with both cards. I can't say for SURE yet, since I mine casually on my 270x. I mine over night but I haven't been mining when I use my computer. I've been mining for roughly (very roughly) 24 hours, and my 270x has generated about .0036ish bitcoins while mining in Wafflepool (multi-coin pool with automatic bitcoin exchanges). But yeah, a sad 350 kh/s. I'm hoping to fine tune it some more to at least get 400.
I use a push-pull config blowing out the rear.
It doesn't cover it on my motherboard..
But thank you for the advice! I will make sure to do this!
Not exactly teetering. Its making contact, it's just that the copper plate isn't in full contact with the processor.
No offense taken, thank you for the advice I will try to fix this today.
Games take up a lot of storage space though. I've had my build (not posted, I accidentally saved over it and had to delete) for about 6 months now and I've already used 600GB
Great build here, but you're going to fill up that storage pretty fast. Personally I'd put a TB or even seagate's 3TB hdd in there.
I will soon take my pump out and see if I can't fix the issue. As Warlock suggested, the standoffs line up, and mobos are created by a machine, so I would assume that it's either the cooler's fault or mine.
Also: I don't know which to replace, the board or the cooler.
