I'm in the same boat. Trying to pick between the 2 cases....both look great. Decisions!
Thanks. The fans are good. On low I can barley notice they are on and my PC sits about a foot to my right keyboard level so its pretty close. On high they aren't really that loud. The case does a good job on sound deafening most of the noise as well.
+1 for the name everyone is going to cry about haha
No problems. Runs nice and quiet.
crap that's a narrow room lol
Great cable work.
Id like to give you a definite answer but...itll be really damn close. But as on mine it isn't the actual card itself that is too long, its the fan shroud(?) that sticks out an extra cm or so. So if worst came to worst- I would have taken that shroud off and cut it down a nip just to make it clear those front ports inside the case.
Yes it is. I haven't had a problem with any of the parts.
Only problem ive had is the front usb 3.0/card readers on the case...they just don't seem to get along with Windows. The back 3.0 ports on the MOBO work just fine. Just something about these front ports give me a very annoying "USB device not recognized" error in Windows. Which sucks...the SD slots would come in super handy.
no need for 16gb of ram. 8 gb is fine like mattias said.
love your desk setup. very nice
Im really starting to like that 250d
you opinion isn't a smart one lol
He SHOULD be water cooling? No...
And the cooler the cpu the fewer errors? Where do you get your facts?
nice looking computer desk. where did ya get it?
Temps have been good. Ive got all the fan spots filled. The sides as intakes and the 2 rear as exhaust. During heavy loads the highest ive even seen it get was 70c. Ive been thinking about switching the fan closest to the cpu to an exhaust to see if there is a difference but reguardless im happy with it.
Where did you find the green viper 3s? I looked around a ton online during my build and didn't see them anywhere.
Why the huge and ugly DC shoe sticker on the side...? Anyways nice setup. Ted!
I got the gigabyte rev 2.0 gtx 760. Its really quiet even during heavy loads. Just a really long card (294mm). But my case is all metal and has sound dampening material so im sure that helps as well.
My case doesn't have a window or a space underneath the motherboard, and I still took my time to give the best cable management I could. AIRFLOW. Plus when ever I need to open it I can be proud of what I did instead of looking at a mess.
I just finished a build with a 760. So far its held up. I don't have to many games but in Skyrim with mods on ultra its a steady 60fps with and Assassins Creed 4 on ultra with some of the AA settings tuned down it plays a good 30fps. Both at 1080p.
Looks great. I see you have 2 zoom lenses sitting on your table. What are you shooting with? I picked up a Pentax K30 last summer and I love it.
Looks like it cleans up real nice. Instead of the 540 I went with Fractals Node 605. I love it but, cable management is pretty much not existent with that case.
I like the slight glow those 2 top fans give on the board. Not a bad lookin box for school and office work. +1
First off..."When commenting on a completed build please keep your feedback polite and constructive, particularly if commenting on part choices and possible alternatives."
And second..."GPU: radeon 5450 -- ok this is just temporary, will likely add a GTX 650 for mid range gaming"
"ok this is just temporary"
Apparently you cannot read.
Just viewed your other build. I was this close || to choosing that corsair case. how do/did you like it?
Looks nice, no pics of the whole case?
Whoa where are you shopping? An i7 for $0.00? You got jipped.
True. Im really leaning towards yellow now.. But who am I kidding. I just finished a build. My next build is a ways a way from now haha.
Add oatmeal creampies to your parts list.
Im really starting to like this case but..
dat cable management!
If I include a theme in my next build I cant see myself doing the basic black/red or black/blue either. Im thinking either black/orange or black/yellow.
Thanks. Yeah I know. Its just a name. And I thought they were white and orange.
Love the black/white/green. Very clean lookin. Wish I had chose a window case and theme for mine. +1
hmm. maybe I got a faulty one. it works great otherwise.
love the black and orange theme.
Actually it depends on the motherboard. A full size ATX will fit with a slimdrive depending on where the sata connectors are on the board. I saw a youtube video where this was the case, but to be on the safe side I would just go with the mATX route if you plan on having an internal drive. I planned on installing a dvd drive on mine hence the mATX but later changed course to just a external. If I could do it again I would defenitly get a full size ATX board and an external dvd drive.
I like it. For the power to price ratio its a great deal.
Great build and awesome entertainment setup. Where did you get the tv stand?
Well recent events did sort of spark the idea, but the number 605 has nothing to do with any actual flight numbers. The case is a Fractal Node 605.
Ive thought about it. Maybe a partion just to see what its like. I love linux as an OS, but for games I believe windows does the better job.
Thanks. Does your mouse also give off a slight high pitch noise while off or is just mine?
No real reason. Price and availability at the time mostly.
No. I made a few mistakes along the way. This was my first time buling a pc. The locked cpu was planned though as I dont have intentions to overclock. At least not this time. The build was a learning process for me just as much as it was anything else.
Thanks. Yeah Im not sweatin it lol.
Well I dont spend 1000+ dollars to give something a name that satisfies you. Would you like me to let you know how stupid of a name McLovin is?
Haha. Thats pretty clever! And yeah I remember the show. Might steal that name from you :)
