Back then I was using the DEEPCOOL captain cooler with the i7 3770k. At that time I decided to budget and look for a newer CPU compatible with my CPU cooler. You say "tell us" like you are speaking for everybody here. Speak for yourself, say "I" instead.
I know. I'm just satisfied as is.
You got me well said.
I actually do have one performance issues. I should've done more research, but I was too late. So due to occupying all pcie slots, my 1080 TI is running at x8 instead of x16. If I were to buy a motherboard capable of running all pcie lanes with no bandwitdh sharing when occupied; I wouldn't have this issue. Small regret thought. Definitely plan on blowing off the dust.
That's a rhetorical question!
I can see why they do that. But I won't do it on this pc because it will require a lot of time and effort to get it neat and it's difficult to access the way its positioned. Not to mention I will have to buy various new cables at certain lengths. Perhaps in the future thought.
Not that heavy for me but I will post a heavier PC I own which is much heavier than this one.
I won't be changing parts on this build anymore. I now consider it done. No more revisions, but just to be safe I removed that Image. Thanks!
The Mobo on this build has a strange issue that if I were to put the GPU in the x16 slot, the PC won't boot.
Media center PC.
To sum it up this build is spare parts from another experiment build. I was interested in old hard drives at the time and thoughts of raid zeroing bunch of them. Airflow not a problem, I have monitored the temps to confirm. About the PSU, as long as I don't put a beefier GPU; I should be fine. Just to be safe I removed that image. Thanks!
Name of that chair? Is it comfortable?
Oh I see, you recently upgraded. Disregard.
I got the same CPU and bought it from ebay for the same price. What are your minimum and highest CPU temps? I have mine air cooled by a Enermax ETS-T40-BK. Highest temp 51c, minimum 22c, turbo boost overclocked to 4.1GHZ.
