It's all good so far.
The bios is probably the most easiest I have used.
Why? Are you having any troubles with the Z170 S?
Tested? I can see you went with the be quiet! dark rock tf, what made you not use the cryorig in the end?
I've actually just ordered the 1080 FTW and will probably sell my 1070. Lost a bit of cash but hopefully now I can get 144fps on BF1 with ultra.
The 3 pin cables for 3 of the fans were Bitfenix 3 pin.
And the 24 pin motherboard + 2 x 8 pin for GPU are Silverstone from amazon.
Couldn't find any white sleeve extension cables for the front panel interface.
The difference it makes.
Really worth the cash.
It comes with 4 strips that produce the light. You have two connection ports on the hub and you can either chain 2+2 or all 4 together off 1 connection.
The different settings for light is programmed with their software called CAM. It's more of a performance piece that helps with temperatures and overclocking (an fps overlay in game as well).
You have quite a few choices of light patterns. Including response to your temperature of the CPU.
To be honest I usually only have all white set.
Would definitely hit the RAM with a standard sized fan on the heat sink.
There are other CRYORIG coolers on the market with thicker fans. The one I obtained just looked good with the white metal. It's performing good for a slight overclock. I think I were to go 4.8 GHz +, I would see some higher temperatures.
Cheers, ill consider the SLI in a few months.
Had any problems with your monitor? I have had to RMA it 3 times so far due to dead pixels and BLB.
Would really like to have a good one, makes a huge difference when gaming.
Nah, its almost more expensive than my PC. Worth the money into a solid display though. Should last a long time. O_O
Actually regret buying the hue+
Could of just got some LEDs on the fans.
Nice build. I can't decide between going full red or white.
Got a quick question regarding the case though.
I saw a review somewhere about it not having a psu filter on the outside. Do you think this is a problem?
What do you think about the case? somewhere i saw a review shaming that there was no psu filter. whats your opinion?
Nice build. We all waiting on 10 series to arrive. :)
Quick question or two.
Whats your opinion on the case? having no filter on the psu, do you see that as a problem?
Why did you choose such a high watt psu?
Not over the top either. Just right.
What's you opinion on the case? from a review I saw the psu does not have a filter on the case, do you see this as a problem?
Yeah its weird. Cryorig do not get much attention. But from everywhere I look, I see good reviews.
Are they fairly a new company?
I will be doing something similar.
Got a quick question though.
How is the cryorig? Do you like it? Does it give a good temperature? Is it loud?
Can't decide between universal cryorig or corsair h100v2.
Nice build. Quick question regarding the case.
Whats your opinion on it not having a filter for the PSU?
Because the case itself looks amazing and is well designed for air flow. Just having no PSU filter annoys me.
Going to make a similar build myself and I can't decide over Cryorig Universal or the usual corsair liquid cooler everyone picks.
The cryorig looks brilliant against the white sabertooth and lighting.
What has been your opinion on the cooler? and have you tried to overclock?
Nice feed back.
Thanks for all the help.
Appreciate all the help.
Finalising the build now:
Have decided to go with the gtx 960 over the 970 because of a big price drop. Then this way I can keep the i7-4790k haswell and in the future, the GPU upgrade would be a good move.
I also changed the msi z97 from the g43 to the pc mate. £10 difference, but I don't know the difference between them, any ideas? Seems like they have pretty much the same accept 2 usb slots?_?
The extra money being saved lets me buy some good fans and brush things up.
One final (hopefully) question. Regarding clarity between i7-4790k haswall and i7-6700k skylake, the pricing is fairly similar, however on userbenchmark.com for example - the skylake is rated higher. What's the deal with that? You said earlier the skylake would be hard pressed, could you elaborate?
Are you over clocking your CPU?
I would prefer a single liquid cooler, is the double fan liquid cooler worth it for non oc'd cpu's?
And my aim wasn't originally to over clock, as I would like it to last a longer period of time to then upgrade the GPU for example in the following years. If so, is there a better processor you can think of for not over clocking?
Nice constructive reply, thanks.
Quick question on the CPU cooler, what's your opinion with the difference between liquid cooling and a heatsink like you have suggested?
Also the S340 supports 140mm fans in the front, would that be a viable option for more intake?
If not, got any suggestions on a similar tower?
My computer is getting old now and I would like a decent computer to run games more smoothly.
Without having to pay over £1k, would be nice to get steady fps with highish settings on game like the division.
Also trying to build a computer for the first time for some experience would be good.
Ill advised? What option would you suggest for spending money on a gaming set up?
Could you explain how you know the CPU is unlocked and the motherboard is locked?
Again, first time build, here to learn as much as possible.
Thanks for the feedback.
