Description

Didn't test anything on it after building. Saving it as a Christmas present for myself :P

UPDATE 12/8/14 - Uploaded more pictures, and forgot to mention that I have been running BIOS checks every day since building and everything checks out and my temps are normal!

UPDATE 12/30/14 - Had my GPU fail after a day and a half of use. Already sent it back and will receive a refurbished one in around 3-6 weeks. Oh well...

Though for the day and a half I played it was glorious! I was only able to play BioShock Infinite, Outlast, Tomb Raider (2013), and The Walking Dead Season 2.

My FPS for each; BioShock Infinite - Ultra settings, VSYNC off, 150+fps

Tomb Raider - Ultimate, triple buffered VSYNC, tressFX ON, 50-60fps

Outlast - max settings, VSYNC ON (this game has an odd amount of screen tearing, even for high framerates) didn't drop 60fps anywhere

TWD: Season 2 - 60fps

If you guys are still around I'll keep posting more updates when my GPU comes in!

Cool build! Congrats on completing it.

I have a question for you related to your power supply and video card. Did you use the daisy-chained PCI-E power cord to connect the power supply to the video card? It looks like you did, but it is kind of hard to tell in the picture.

The reason I ask is that I am using the same power supply as you, and I only see the one PCI-E power cord with the additional daisy-chained cord attached, but I'm not sure if maybe I'm missing something! Could you possibly include a more close-up picture of the connection from the power supply to the video card?

Thanks, mate!

And congrats on the slick build!

Thanks man! I'm actually not too sure which connector I used for my GPU. Honestly, since this is my first build I just used the first connector I found that fit properly. I have ran a BIOS test since building and everything is working fine. Sorry if I couldn't help!

Ok, thanks for the help!

Sorry I apparently wasn't thinking when you commented.

The PCI-E connector I used came directly from the PSU, and the R9 270X requires two of them on the back of the GPU. Sorry for my stupidity! XD

Gtx 750 ti FTW would be a better choice for your graphics

Seriously? The 270x beats all of the 750s. The 265 beats all of the 750s, and the 260x beats all the 750s. That seriously doesn't make sense how you would recommend a weaker GPU... but yeah the maxwell architecture is pretty good. Also the 6300 does not bottleneck the 270x at all. 4300 will bottleneck it, but not the 6300.

Can I ask you if this case supports an SSD mount? If not, does it come with the hardware to screw it into a 3.5" slot? Also, your motherboard supports onboard USB 3.0 headers. You didn't have any problems using the front USB 3.0 slots did you?

I'm not sure if it is able to accommodate an SSD, but I do know it doesn't come with the hardware to fit one into a 3.5" slot.

And no problems with the onboard USB 3.0 headers!
