Alcheya's Completed Build: First "From Scratch" Build in 12 years (Complete, but room for expansion)

Vahadriel 2 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

So you think the turbo version of 212 which is 4mm taller will fit just fin

How much room is there between the case and the top of you 212 evo

couldn't tell you, the original fan clashed with color, so i went straight to corsair fan

how about this?

the Corsair 120 LED Fan is to replace the one on cpu cooler, then the one on cpu cooler plus additional red cooler master fan for case

like this... maybe not necessarily such an expensive one if youre on a budget, but if money is no option than yeah this is perfect

great no frills no build, but if i were to make a small exception make the smaller ssd an m.2 and use it for os

honestly if you are just barely not meeting your expectations with the 4790K I'd say dial in a decent overclock, and wait til the Intel Core iX - 8XX0 lineup

Vahadriel's Completed Build: Sith Lord Matix

Vahadriel submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

hmm... weird. see if you already own a 4790k I wouldn't upgrade, but if youre building a new pc from the ground up you might as well

agreed, it lacks a lot of flair, and performance

manirelli's Build Guide: Enthusiast AMD Ryzen Gaming Build

you're right its completely unreasonable to spend an additional $150 for significantly more storage space, a better 1080, a non stock cpu cooler, way better ram, and a much more consistent look... wait no that's totally worth the additional cost, especially due to the tangible performance gain from the ram frequency alone.

Vahadriel's Completed Build: Sith Lord Matix

Vahadriel submitter 2 Builds 0 points 7 months ago

yes there is a tangible benefit from the upgrade.... but the real question is if the performance increase is from the ipc gain or the change to ddr4... either way there is a noticeable performance difference, mainly with more cpu intensive games like "ashes of the singularity", "gta v", or "the witcher 3"

I like my rebuild better....its a bit more expensive, but I feel its much more cohesive

I don't know if id call this enthusiast, it seems a little bland, and lacking a little oomph (not so much cpu, but gpu selection's a little boring) but decent build all in all

every time i look at this cooler it just doesn't look like a standard 140mm fan would fit on it cause of the weird mounting system of the stock fan, but seeing that you replaced the stock fan on the cooler it wasn't an issue

was there enough room to mount top fan with that cpu cooler?

Ryuuloveskitsune's Completed Build: My Birthday Present for my mother

Vahadriel 2 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

so judging by the pick of the corsair lpx installed, it fits under the cooler?

Soules56's Completed Build: Richard Roundtree

Vahadriel 2 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

so were there any clearance issues with the cpu cooler and ram slots one and 2?

just curious does that asus wifi adapter have Bluetooth as well or is it strictly wif

im just curious how the integrated sd card reader plugs into the motherboard if either uses a second usb 2.0 header or piggy backs off the usb 3.0 header

The i5 you chose makes your graphics card look cheap... But all in all good build, can never go wrong building in a phanteks case

Clintt's Completed Build: Ivy Bridge Refurbishment

Vahadriel 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

I honestly feel like the reason your cards are so hot is due to the limited space between the 2 which is a restriction created by the motherboard's form factor

how are temps I already built in this case once but want to do another build and sli was something I had in mind

What exact HB SLI bridge are you using cause I'm thinking I need 2 x 1080s in my life

wait til you see my next build lol.... revenge of the budget case

Vahadriel's Completed Build: Jedi Guardian

My next Build is coming soon, it'll be a little unconventional but it'll be a beautiful unorthodox monster

Vahadriel submitter 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Honestly the one place I feel like you can kind of scimp on is the enclosure. My buddy was thinking about building a sleeper system inside an old hp p6 2100 case. As long as thermals are good, it shouldn't matter much. Like I said before this case is actually not half bad considering its price tag.... bottom mounted psu with removable dust filter, support for over 310mm graphics cards, 165mm cpu cooler clearance, 240mm radiator support, 2 5.25" bays, 1 external 3.5" bay, 3 devoted 2.5" drive sleds, 4 devoted 3.5" drive sleds, side window, and great airflow and fan support

I have yet to overclock, but I imagine it'd be alright. Understand its a budget z97 board, and 9 times out of 10 you get what you pay for. Who knows it could be a diamond in the rough, ill get back to you as soon as I have conclusive results

Vahadriel's Completed Build: Jedi Guardian

Vahadriel submitter 2 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Well in your case no its not just a piece of metal holding everything together, its a piece of art. I was just looking for something to hold it together, and honestly for how cheap this case is, its pretty feature rich

Vahadriel 2 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

How are your temps, I noticed your cpu cooler is pretty much sitting on top of your graphics card

You think I could get away with an i7 4790k and a gtx 980 ti, or do you think this setup produces too much heat for this case
