Description

Im 13, i built this my self, everything went to plan, one problem i faced, i forgot to plug it in, twice. LOL And does anyone have a sound coming from their graphics card?(this one) Like a scraping noise from the fan? When i turn the speed up over 50 it becomes loud and worries me. Besides that, all went fine.

Here's another one that claims his age later on. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/fRd6Mp. Not sure why kids these days have to mention an age. Can give the wrong impression at times and I wonder how they make their money. I know anyone can save money but backend I was blessed to even accumulate $480 a year from allowance + extra if I did chores or yard work + birthday / Christmas when I was a kid. I know not everyone had this and my time was different.
Now I'm in my late 20s and still wonder how kiddos are making this much. I do not have a kid so I'm ignorant. Pretty sure some get extra help somewhere but who knows... :)

I think it's mostly for bragging rights as most builds that're nearly $2000.00 or over are usually built by adults, not many teenagers and younger can say that they saved up that much (either by a part-time job or otherwise) and built it themselves.

Indeed.

However, it is better to spend on what you need in a build then to spend on a lot of wants. It's a shame if the build isn't fully utilized if over done it. Though frankly, we all have our wants and that's OK too.

it was a family investment and also the age was for my building experience, nothing to do with bragging.

How kind of your family. They are pretty awesome. :)

It's hard to say since age is not a requirement to mention. It is impressive of course when young people can do it too. Especially when they desire to learn and continue on with it.

Sorry my bad, then my advise for a young brilliant like you is to be disciplined on your gaming sessions, don't let gaming be the only stuff you're good at.

Return your card cause it might have coil whine and that **** is annoying if your not gonna be wearing headphones when gaming.

Sorry to say but this is NOT a good build for a 13 year old....... This is a good build for anybody !!

Does the shroud around your graphic card have a dent or something?

If you remove it to examine it please kill the power first and do not forget to flip the locking tab on the PCI-E slot so the card comes out (as well as the EXPANSION SLOT screws.

I would love to see more phots but either way... Thank You for sharing.

I wondered if there was structural issues with the card.....

  • 47 months ago

no theres some type of scraping from the sound, but only at high fan speeds. btw i added more pictures

Try to RMA the card (return it ) for a replacement.

And thanks for the photos

I think you spent too much on the processor compared to the GPU.

How so?

You could've gotten a 100$ cheaper processor, and then spent a bit more or got a bit cheaper motherboard and had a processor that would do absolutely fine and have the GTX 980. I've just always been annoyed when people spend more or equal on their processor than their GPU.

In a sense true and OP could have actually gotten away with a much cheaper build but the i7-4790K paired with the GTX 970 is a good combo. Not everyone's currency, sales tax and how they get each part is the same so that is something to be aware of plus OP is Canadian currency.

the prices for these 2 in canada are way up still, i was lucky to get the i7 at that price as at ncix the price ranges from 450-500 at regular.

Right, I can only imagine! You got a good deal out of it so good job for waiting patiently and finding a great deal.

Good job kiddo. What do you intend on using this for, aside from gaming? Did you use just your money or did anyone else help out as well? Next step is getting some decent sleeved PSU cables as well to appease the "Quality" Gods.

I want to do some developing in mobile apps tbh, but that will take time, with school and all.

I am fourteen, and currently saving for my dream budget build. This build is great! I love the black and red theme, though it is a little overused..... Also, how did the i7 4790k preform? I am debating on getting one of those or a low end xeon.

  • 47 months ago

Its fantastic and rarely gets any hot. I would recommend it depending on current and future use. and also your budget.

  • 47 months ago

I am on a low budget, so I am still considering the xeon. To be honest, I can't decide!

  • 47 months ago

why use the xeon though tbh and isnt it cheaper?

  • 47 months ago

The i7 is 100 bucks more than the xeon

Hello and good job

Nice! I'm 13 too, so I can relate. Few things though,

1) get more case fans

2) get a higher wattage psu, such as the EVGA 750 or 850 G2

3) just saying, you didn't really need a copy of Windows

4) you might want to invest in some quality peripherals

  • 47 months ago

1) His PSU is fine for this build

2) Of course he needed a copy of Windows! How else would he install it?(presuming he doesn't already have a spare retail license)

3) He could use an extra case fan or two but it's not that necessary.

Can you elaborate on why he needs a higher wattage PSU?

You seem like the kind of guy that slaps an 850 in a single GPU Skylake build...

  • 47 months ago

In case he wants to add another gpu and overclock

Screw SLI 970's just get a high end Pascal/Polaris... Just my opinion, but I think with the way the GPU market is moving, in the next 8 months we should start to see single card solutions than can provide solid high resolution and frame rate gaming without needing that 1200 watt PSU and a dozen 2000rpm fans...

  • 47 months ago
  • 1 point

Yes that will happen with Pascal, at least I hope so

  • 47 months ago
  • 1 point

If AMD's marketing material from this week is to be believed, Polaris is looking promising also... I've been on Radeon offerings since the early 2000's and finally moved to green team last year due to Maxwells video engine and lower power/heat, the move may be short lived..

i wanted to get more case fans but im over budget (it was $2000 LOL) as u see lol i got 2 though.

2(im planning on getting a 750w if i ever get a new gpu or if i replace this one with perhaps a 980ti or even 2

3 i think i did lol
