    Setup upgraded!

    i7 4770k
    ASUS Z87-Pro
    7970 @1130/1650
    Corsair H100i
    Neutron GTX 240GB + Crucial M4 128gb + 2TB Seagate 7200 rpm
    Corsair AX760
    16GB G Skill 1600mhz

    ASUS PB278Q
    LG IPS224V
    ODAC + O2 Amp + Sennheiser HD 598 + KRK Rokit 5
    A tankard'o'terror!

    Went from a i5 2500k because I wanted moar threads for work stuff, same reason for going from 8 to 16 gigs (going for 32 as soon as I can). Obviously great for gaming too. Pretty happy and will start messing with OCing that i7 soon enough.

    Was a sale, so i couldnt hold myself. Bought ASUS gtx770 2GB DirectCU II OC, Kingston HyperX 3K 240gb ssd and BenQ 24" 3D LED XL2411T 144hz.
    Also bought a 760 for my friend, will be a nice upgrade from whatever he had. Mail is taking forever it seems.

    My home cosy computer.


    Case: Xigmatek Elysium (amazing airflow with that big side fan). Yes its almost as tall as my desk
    CPU: i5-2500k at 4.5ghz at good low voltages, low temperatures
    CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-C14 (Gets kinda dusty, http://i.imgur.com/Vl6XldA.jpg)
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance low profile 1.5 V 1600Mhz 2x4GB
    Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 PRO B3
    HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB
    PSU: Corsair AX 850W PSU
    GPU: The MSI GTX 560TI Twin Frozr II (Awesome card, good OC, low temperatures with case side fan blowing at it)

    Bought for christmas
    Sound Card: Asus Xonar DG (Cheap, but made a BIG difference)
    Headset: Corsair HS1A
    Speakers: Corsair Gaming Series 2500 (Amazing, also rather cheap)

    Screen is an Acer lcd 24" i got cheap.
    Keyboard and mouse is something i got for 20$, quite good. Broke my old mouse

    Also, is migrating parts of your HDD like OS to a ssd easy or will i maybe run into problems? Otherwise, good builds guys

    I personally prefer to just install a new OS, if you want to move it over, though I've heard cloning works well enough.

    Does installing a new OS on the ssd wipe your hdd? Or can you just install a new one and kind off delete the old OS from your HDD? Dont want to do a clean install when i have 300-400gb of games i want to keep.

    It won't affect your HDD. If anything, just keep your HDD unplugged until Windows is installed.

    Why do you say that? All the intakes are dust filtered and the exhausts are not. I also added one extra Noctua NF-P12 with a dust filter where the optical drives would be. So I have 4 intakes, 3+GPU as exhaust (a bit slower than the intakes), trying to keep positive pressure with air coming only through the filters.

    cant actually see the extra 2 fans, can only see the 2 intakes mind you, but filters keep out moderate to large dust particles, the fine ones still get in, this is just in generally speaking, but nice , see way too many people going with the negative pressure route and not realising the fine particles always enter and its that which has to be dealt with positive pressure to be blown out, fine dust settles with negative pressure sadly or pulls in dust from any vents

    Storage is in GB/TB.

    Otherwise, is that for you? Why ATX?

    Why would I down/side-step to a 7950? And from a FT02 to a FD Arc? And a non colour-matched build for myself? Eww. Also, not enough hardrive space.

    No, this was built per request for a friend a few days ago. Thought I'd post the picture and specs here seen as the thread has fallen behind 1-2 pages.

    Did you like building in the Arc R2 Case?
    I shifted my comp over in to it and a few upgrades a couple days ago.
    I felt like it was a great case for the money, working pretty well so far also.

    Speaking of hard disks:

    not bad. could be better

    I couldn't figure out how to make the extra ssd cache my storage disk so I gave up and added it to the raid set. Still holding the "do I just give up on magnetic storage" debate. Adding one of those super-cheap 4k displays for chat/music/movies/web browsers is also starting to look like a good idea - it'd fill the space above the monitors perfectly

    I was thinking about using the 55" versions of that screen ~$1200, but I'd want to see one in person displaying text. Being limited to HDMI 1.4 at 30hz input at 4k makes it worthless for games but 1-2-3 of them could make for a really awesome workstation configuration for writing code, using spread sheets, or just browsing like 20 cat videos at once. Mostly I'm interested in xcode: it'll eat up 2x27" displays and still want more. 3x4k might be just enough space to get some work done, and at 'only' $2100 for 3 of them it's still way less expensive than a pair of 30" 1600p displays.
