But since you have two of them the OC's probably won't do much >_<

    Definitely OC that 4930K, do post results in the chat thread or CPU overclocking thread

    oh yes, definately is the plan to overclock! currently laying sick, so was planning on taking a closer look this weekend!

    I thought someone might point that out! *fistbump*

    Love my Gibraltar rack. Picture in the computer forum chat thread for anyone who wants to see my kit. :P

    I'm contemplating getting a new case, anyone that could help me decide?
    I've currently got one of those Antec gaming series cases which i've had for about 2 to 3 years now, but the design is pretty bad (near impossible for cable management), could barely get my MSI 780 Gaming in there without HDD's blocking it & such.
    Plus it gets way too dusty after a few months, i'd rather have something i could hide the cable's easier and thus make it easier to keep clean as well.

    Looking around the web i've come across 3 options, the NZXT Phantom 630, which looks amazing, but is just slightly pricier than i'd like, plus i don't really like the top fan feature because it just feels like dust gets in easier that way based on my current case, might be just me though.
    Then there was the Corsair Obsidian 550D, which is better priced, but just seems a little less amazing than the Phantom, no top fan though which seems like a plus for me.
    And then there's the Coolermaster Stryker or something, which "looks" cool, but it just doesn't seem that it has all the options & userfriendlyness of the other ones.

    I'd love to go for the Phantom personally, the only thing that's been sort of holding me back is the price, but if it's worth it it's worth it honestly.

    I have looked into acrylic tubing, but that will have to be something down the road. I'm going to tighten it up when I finally put it all together

    I've purchased some new parts over the past few months... http://imgur.com/a/EZUEA

    Got me a new EVGA 780ti SC, plan on getting a second one here soon, when we receive our bonus from work. Also, the LED on my H80i died, so I just decided to upgrade to a H100i. Soon, I'll go back in to see if I can push my OC a bit further with this cooler. Then of course, I bought 2 new monitors. ASUS VN247H-P x2. Not the highest quality, but they get the job done.

    Then of course, I still need to do a bit of cable management, in and out of the case. But I think I'll just wait until I get a new desk for that.

    EDIT: Oh, and the 900D. Can't forget the 900D.

    Couple reasons. First, there are games that I just can't play on ultra at 5760x1080. Second, I plan on putting blocks on them, and personally, one one card under water looks weird, I prefer the aesthetic of two. I don't NEED two, I could survive with one, turning down graphics. But I WANT two.

    Not much as happened to my build since my last post, but I did recently move so here's an update from my current "corner".


    This is how it looked about 1 week after I had moved in. Only main screen was plugged in and a lot of my peripherals (and cables) were in boxes.



    But today I took some time to plug everything in properly.

    @Marest, didn't make the desk spotless/clean this time? Looks nice, though the LED's would bug me out.

    Personal changes:
    I cut a hole in the top of the Node304 to allow some extra ventilation (might add a 92mm below to force) for the graphics card. The 670 DCII reached 80 degrees in Starship Citizen, a little too much. I think the reason for that is the absence of the 140mm casefan that was removed for the H60.

    I think it turned out quite nicely.


    EDIT: nevermind, added that fan.

    I also like the little directory "stuff" where he dumped his entire desktop in.

    Well, there was a trend a while back where people posted their desks as they look "right now". Thought I'd join in ^^
    And the LEDs are RBG and can of course be turned off. I actually like the red light during the night (when it gets really dark) but find white or blue to be better when gaming (e.g. BF4).

    My First build... need suggestions

    Hi, I'm new to this forum but i really like everything y'all do and all the help y'all provide so i figured i would take some pictures and ask for some pointers. I'm a college student and so I kinda just build as I can afford. Unfortunately this results in a lot of mismatched components and nothing that is of the same brand. This is my first build ever and the last component that I need is a decent video card on a college student budget. I have pictures and I will also post specific pieces below.






    MB- ASUS F2 A85-V Pro
    Processor- AMD A10 6800K 4.4 Ghz
    cpu cooler- Hyper 212 Evo
    Ram- Patriot viper extreme 1600 mhz 16Gb X2
    1 Tb seagate barracuda
    120 Gb kingston ssdnow 300
    coolermaster sickleflow 120 X3
    Coolermaster Jetflow 120
    NZXT FZ 140mm
    antec 80mm

    I've done the best I can with cable management. This case doesn't really have a lot of options.

    Thank you in advance for any help, i'm looking for any and all advice (especially on GPU's)
