Description

Built this computer for my wife during '15 XMAS, it's mainly used for gaming, hence the i5. Solid all-around, great airflow, and the 980ti is more than she needed.

It's got a small OC at 4.2Ghz, the Aquacharger keeps it at 60 under AIDA stress test. Pretty good for such an inexpensive cooler.

She's been loving it :)

I'll be frank, the baby serves no functional purpose and is purely for cosmetic benefits.

The baby's functional purpose is to be an excuse as to why you were up all night.

Very inefficient power consumption. Huge amount of power draw with next to nothing output.

Fail product, -2/10. lol

The Babies I have seen seem to have decent output, although you need to change the bottom liquid catch regularly as the reservoir leaks :/

Congrats for feature spotlight! A very lovely build for your wife and a lovely family you have! (Realizing from your avatar after I saw photos.) I love black and red schemes very much. Also excellent parts, it will serve her well for quite some time. You have my one and support.

Thanks! I know black/red builds are over done, but the wife loves this build. Although, I am working on a new project for her :) something to push her back to gaming (cuz she quit after the baby) =/

Also, this avatar photo was taken during same time the rig was built, coincidentally, lol.

Thank you for sharing this build and you are most welcome. Even though the black and red computers are common, I never was tired of them. Working on a new project for her? How exciting!

something to push her back to gaming (cuz she quit after the baby) =/

Yes, that is understandable when a little one is a part of the family. Your whole world changes and become very devoted to your baby.

Also, this avatar photo was taken during same time the rig was built, coincidentally, lol.

That is even more awesome. :)

So funny that I noticed your comment on the last featured build... "I was going to post my new rig today, in the hopes that it would be featured. Thank god I didn't, it wouldn't have stood a chance against this monster."

I am pretty new to computers, haven't been into them for very long.

Always was kinda skeered to actually go and pick one up.

Much less make one.

Terminology such as master/slave was something I never really thought about.

Same could be said for young un's.

Now after two kids it ain't no thing.

I ain't skeered no mo.

They don't break nearly as easy as I first thought. Pretty forgiving to boot.

Love my kids.

Hope I can say the same about my first computer build LOL.

Nice build and nice looking kid.

Oh yeah.

The master/slave thingy?

Just go and ask my little girl who's who.

We actually bought the PSU used, for the price of a G2 750W. So we figured, might as well get this one lol.

Well that explains it nicely, I wondered if it was something like that. Your other builds that I've seen were all pretty much perfectly configured for themselves, didn't think you would go all out on a component that is overkill compared to the rest of the components. Makes for easier recycling in the future... :)

Very nice +1

You should keep this computer around in it's original state so you can show it to your kid when they grow up. It's an idea I got from another build by a parent, but essentially it's so you can show off your top of the line gaming pc to them 10 years later so they can tell you how much it sucks compared to future technology. ;)

In 15 years, they'll be like 'WTF is this old ****, my toilet has faster better processor'.

And you'll make them play games from 2014-16 on it and tell them that's how gaming was back in the good old days just for the Schadenfreude.

Or in this case: Dadenfreude.

Where did you plug in all those fans?

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

I have a silverstone 3 to 1 PWM fan splitter. Despite having a fan hub, I didn't like all those wires running rampant.

Heres the one I used, $5 on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Silverstone-Technology-Sleeved-Splitter-CPF02/dp/B00HJOJS9O

Aren't you worried about damaging the mobo header with 3 fans?

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

Good point, never really thought about it.

I just assumed that if the header can support a fan hub, it surely can support a fan splitter.

Thanks! True, the 4790k is actually on our upgrade list for her next PC.

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

...the I5 might bottleneck your gpu a bit.

The i5-4690K is overclocked to 4.2GHz, it will be OK with 1080p or 1440p (60Hz) when paired with a GTX 980Ti. In the past it's been recommended to overclock the i5-4690K to 4.0GHz or higher when pairing with a GTX 980 Ti. If there was any bottleneck, it is NOT going to hinder this PC.
  • 40 months ago

Actually, most games don't make use of hyperthreading, so the I7 won't be needed. Plus the I5 4460 is the maximum a cpu you will need for most games, so even the 4690k will be overkill.
