Thank you penguin2424! The fanboys tend to put that extra effort in and I'm glad I did.

It has excellent cable management options. Lots of tie downs and plenty of room in the back. I love this case.

This PC is barely audible as it has great airflow with just a single intake and a single exhaust.

As for a GPU, it depends on your gaming needs. There are some amazing cards on the horizon which means the old cards will be dropping in price. You could probably get a GTX 960 for $125 pretty soon and that would pair well with this chip. You may even be able to get a 970 for $140 but the chip may bottleneck that card without a heavy overclock. If all else fails, you can pick up a GTX 750ti for $80 right now. Just find out what games you want to play and search YouTube for paired results with each combination. If the FPS is ok for you, go for it.

It would also be a good idea to wait and see what the newest architecture has to offer with the RX470 RX460. Can't confirm until real benchmarks are released.

Thank you bloob002! I'm happy with how it turned out. It's looks better in person and the client was very happy with it.

Most of my clients are family or family friends and I'm trying to branch out a bit more. I just try and focus on picture quality as my selling point.

As for OCZ, I heard their Trion 100 had some problems but Trion 150 was their answer to the difficulties. I dont have much expereience running synthetic/real benchmarks but I have yet to find a reason why I shouldn't purchase OCZ. I'm a fan of budget SSD's because even the crappiest ones are miles ahead of HDD's. Perhaps OCZ had made it's return after Toshiba purchased them?

It's part of their Riing LED series. They are pretty nice and come with a low noise profile cable.

I purchased it at Frys for $24. I believe it's just a noname (logisys) brand with an RGB remote.

I'm humbled by that comment but I dont see it being featured. There are excellent builds out there with the latest parts. This build has been done before and I would be upset to see some of the other builds miss out on the featured spot. Thank you though!

Thank you. I must admit that I was running dry when trying to type a description that people might be interested in reading since this is one of the more bland builds. I can't stand leaving it blank.

Comment reply on Altenater's Completed Build: White Walker

Yes, as Alternater has mentioned, it is currently an intake. I would be curious to know the temp differences between having it as an intake vs exhaust. He might be just fine as is since his cards are blower cards and exhaust the heat out of the back PCIe brackets.

Comment reply on Altenater's Completed Build: White Walker

  • 36 months ago

No. They are pulling air through the rad to cool it, not push. Temp difference is usually negligible in that setup.

So clean! Nice pics, great part list and excellent description. All the makings of a featured build in my opinion. I especially like the m.2 size reference.

Only thing I would have changed is the top 120 to exhaust but not sure about temp differences either way.

Yeah temps might creep. I did see a guy fit a 120mm fan on the side in place of the HDD mount. That might be your best bet. Or, just get a different chassis.

They say "thermally designed"...

I think they must assume that anything that is going to use the included PSU (250w) must not be that demanding. The PSU technically grabs the heat from the CPU. If you are planning on using it, just make sure the hardware isn't too crazy. It doesn't even support a 2 slot PCIe card so it cant be that crazy.

No fan at all. In fact, I'm not even sure if I recall it having any mounting for one.

I 3rd this. The RAM is kingston though so you cant go wrong. It just isn't all that sexy. I still voted for his build. That Define Nano S is just too sleek.

If I recall correctly, I used the standard HD audio connection via the USB pins on the bottom of the motherboard instead of using the 3.0 USB port near the SATA and 24pin slots. Picture 14/20 shows it plugged in.

Yeah, I am not a crazy fan either but I do remember watching some very old Star Trek with my dad when I was a little boy. I feel as though I may actually like it if I sat down and watched it though.

I completely agree with you here. It was more of a last minute addition as I had quoted the client wrong. I gave him a price but didn't factor in a few price fluctuations. I didn't even make money off of this build. In fact, I spent $30 over budget just to finalize a few small touches. If I had the room, I surely would have included the Dark Rock 3. That thing is pure gold!

Thanks for the +1
