Description

It took me nearly 6 months to find the parts I wanted to use on my custom build. I was doing research day and night when finally I just decided to go with what I had planned and with the part that my job offered at tigerdirect. The part that pushed me the more to have this build the color blue was the ram, those beautiful lights that light up every time there is a process going thru them makes them so attractive. It's like never seen before and it just makes the pc look more complicated than what it really was. I still plan on adding more custom accessories onto my pc but for the mean time leave a comment or compliment of what I'm starting of with since I did want to start pc gaming now!

Dude I hate to be that guy but really? You should have asked more questions before you built this PC.

A 4670k paired with a non overclocking MB and a H100i

Do you really need $160 worth or ram? Yes the ram looks nice but you overspent a lot!!

Then the PSU is overkill.

You could have saved at least $240 and thrown that to a better GPU like a GTX 770 or 280X.

Good job on your frist build but for 1k and no SSD/HDD this is a bad build. :'(

I do see where you come from, but I had different prices than what are showing here, I actually used close to 850 with no taxes included and no warranty, then it boost back up to warranty an taxes

1) Yes I agree the 4670k is the better CPU to buy, but he got a locked MB so you cant overclock. So it probably would have been better to go with the 4570 as its $45 less and you wouldn't notice much of a difference.

2)Yes 16 gb does give you room for upgradeability but for gaming its completely pointless unless you are into video editing and such.

3) 750w PSU is overkill for the build he has now. First you cant SLI a GTX 750 and those cards only use 60W anyways. Second that MB only supports 6 Sata ports with a maximum of 120w of HDD. So yes the 750W is nice but he will never come close to it on this build, but maybe on his second. 650W PUS is plenty for even a GTX 780TI 1 SSD and 2 HDD's.

4)True, whatever

5)I was just pointing out the fact that he some how spent 1k without the SSD and HDD which would have at least costed an extra $130. Money was just spent in the wrong areas for a PC that has no upgradabilty. Only thing you can upgrade is the GPU and that's it, which isn't bad in the long run.

Hr got a z87 board, not the one that he listed on the parts list. It is in the pictures. I do understand the power supply issues though.

I stand corrected.

Thank you sir.

So he did, but the Z87-G41 is still a lower end Z87 board so he isn't going to get a good enough overclock to justify the h100. More of a board for casual overclocking with a weaker cooler like a 212 EVO.

Yeah that is true, but at least with less of an overclock comes less heat, so his fans wont have to work as hard keeping his cpu cooler and it will be quieter, as a noisy cooler can get irritating.

I like how you left a lot of room to upgrade. I assume you will want to buy a higher end graphics card sometime down the road?

Later down the road I will be upgrading, maybe within the next year if possible either with a ssd and/ or a better graphics card

the 750 cant be sli so im guessing you will be buying 2 760's?

So if this was meant to be a gaming PC,why did you get so much RAM and on the case, aaaanddd the power supply,when that barely pull even 250w? In my opinion i think you could have picked the parts for much much better performance from what you have now,like going from the h100i to 212 Evo and a Cheaper case could have aloud you to get a much better GPU.

That because I will be over clocking from 3.4Ghz to 4, and possibly even up to 4.2 Ghz. Something I need for over clocking in my cooling. Then adding an sli later down the road

You can't sli 750s

I know, thats why ill be getting the 760 2gb for the sli

How is that gtx 750? Would you recommend it.

  • 62 months ago
  • 1 point

For the cost and the way it responds I really like the way that it is put together. You get amazing response even with the afterburn. I would recommend it on a low budget

Do you get good frame rates?

The 750ti SC is $20 more for a 2gb version and it can run all modern games on ultra with decent frame rates. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBrTX67aQss

I'm going to -1 even if this isn't a gaming build. I think everyone ahead of me explains it perfectly.

You could have gone with a 212 evo cooler cheaper RAM and PSU saving enough for a760 at a later date you could always change the cooler

  • 62 months ago

Nice build, but you could have gotten a 750 Ti for the same price here

  • 62 months ago
  • 0 points

I had different prices than what is showing here, I simply put the computer parts so everyone could know what specs I had but the prices are not the same

  • 62 months ago
  • 1 point

you can mod the prices if you got them from a different source/time thenn when you put the build up, but OK.

I Updated the motherboard, apperently I had the one I was going to buy before, Sorry Guys!!

If I was you I would delete this change the parts for the right ones and adjust the prices because apart from the ram it's not a bad build

  • 62 months ago

my ram does that too

1) motherboard does overclock, wter or hydro cooling is a whole lot better than the stock fan performance

2)16 gb could be a waste of money, but when you get 16gb of ram with led's at a price of 129.99 from cedarpc.com at a quad channel frequency you get a whole lot more than 189.99 on the same speed of 2133mhz for a dual channel at the same speed

3)Im not staying with this graphics card for a very long time, Im saving for an sli later down the road

4)you make no sense

5)yes a 750watt for intel than is more than good enough for me at the moment

6)I do agree with you in this tho

7)It's my choice, my money, everyone has their own needs and wants

You should fix the mobo on the part list, it is different than the one you used, that's a big reason why everyone is yelling at you.
