    Looks cool, but what does that fan grill do exactly? It's just sitting there on the rad o_O

    Can you hear vague this question sounds? How well will it run what?

    The build looks good/decent should be able to handle most game on high+, no overclocking so there is some lost performance when it comes to CPU intensive games (like WoW and other MMOs)
    CPU: Intel i7-4790k 4.7GHz MB: ASUS Z97 Pro Gamer
    GPU: Gigabyte GTX 970 G1-Gaming 1519MHz Boost RAM: Corsair Pro 16GB 1866MHz
    SSD: Samsung 850-EVO 500GB PSU: Corsair RM550 CASE: Phanteks Enthoo Pro Monitor: 1440p Dell U2515H 1080p LG 237L-BN IPS

    Haha well like BF3, D3, Bioshock: Infinite & WoW to name some, & with the overclocking, I'm going to see how well it runs before I overclock but eventually I will in the future.

    Should run all those titles fine at 1080p, medium-high settings depending on how much FPS you're happy with.

    You won't be overclocking that CPU because it's a non-K chip (locked multiplier), and the GTX760 will OC to push out another 8-10% performance at the most.

    For further questions please either post in Computer Chat Thread, or shoot me a PM, or make your own thread (since this is going a bit offtopic :P)

    Yeah it's my primary, eventually I wanna build an ATX with a water cooling system, but until then yeah it's my primary. And well I didn't notice that, maybe I'll upgrade to an i7 3770k by the end of the year.
    Thanks for the feedback! & true, it is haha

    I'd advise for him to just make his own thread with questions, since the chat thread is also not really for Q&A, rather just to stop us regulars for the most part from talking about beer and cheese.

    His own thread with custom title will get peoples' attention.

    Also, DON'T STEAL ALL THE ATTENTION!!! PM you only... PFFFFFF Scumbag Xuvial.

    If you could afford it now, I'd just return the current CPU for an i7-3770K, as paying the full price later on will be such a minor increase in performance for such an exorbitant amount of money, hell I would just stick with the current one or get the i5-3570K, as you probably won't use an i7, anyways.

    Fanless PSU is the only way I'd appreciate that PSU-orientation
    Fractal Design, Noctua and Be Quiet!. I love it.

    Ohhh man I would want to do so many sexy things with that cooler. It looks all kinds of badass.

    That cooler + GPU with backplate + black fans + z77 Sabertooth = phwoaaaaarrrrrrr

    What are the specs? i5 3570K + Giga 670/680 Windforce? (wild guess)

  13. #11713
    CPU: 4770K @ 4.4ghz so far around 1.1V (definitely needs more tuning, way too many options) OC detail: turbo boost scalee 4x 3.7 3x 4.2 2x 4.3 1x 4.4, i don't need 4x 4.4Ghz since most games are single or dual threaded, i can use 4.3-4.4Ghz in games since 4x 3.7 is enough for everything, i noticed it runs around 4.2-4.3 in games with almost no additional heat that i noticed, since i don't push all cores to 4.4 with adaptive voltage.
    CPU cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock 2
    Fans: 2x NOCTUA NF-P14 + 2x NOCTUA NF-P12 (damn big case next time it will be 4x NOCTUA NF-P14) (1x NF-P12 not used yet)
    RAM: 32GB (4x8GB) Corsair Vengeance
    PSU: Seasonic Fanless 520W 80+ platinum
    Case: Fractal design define r4
    GPU: Gigabyte Windforce X3 670
    SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
    HDD: WD Red 2TB

    I don't know about GPU with backplate, i don't feel like changing GPU coolers, i never did that before and loose GPU cooler si trouble. But it would look much better, still 3x fan does the job pretty silently. That pc is about 2-3 orders of magnitude quieter (since dB is log scale that means perceived noise is 2-3x quieter) than my notebook acer Aspire. 7560G

    • Zalman 850W PSU - I was fool to think the trend of increasing power consumption would continue.
    • Samsung 245B accompanied by two Acer AL1951's. Television is an old 46" Samsung, probably one of the first 1080p TVs.
    • Logitech G15 and Mx518 mouse.
    • Yamaha RX-V765 is powering a 5.0 set by OR with AudioPro SubFocus woofer. Or alternatively, Beyerdynamic DT-770 cans.
    I finally got myself a new keyboard, that old G15 I bought shortly after its release became a lil' beaten up over the years. Bear with the image quality, I've only got a crappy fixed focus camera phone and a magnifying glass for macro shots.
