The pictures are not up to date, and that is where I currently have the fan. Thanks for the suggestion though!
It was a while ago so I don't remember, but I recovered my data onto a separate computer, then formatted the bad drive and put all my stuff back on it.
EaseUS Data Recovery Program. It's $70 but I got my stuff back.
Honestly, I only have the one that came with it and haven't had any problems. The 212 EVO helps move air around though, so maybe you could look into something like that.
I am running Windows 10 and have had no issues with the motherboard.
Most power supplies can be mounted in either position. This way, it's blowing the hot air out under the tower, as opposed to back in the computer. Also, the cables are closer to the back panel which is the only way that some would reach.
Not bad! I'd get a cooler soon, though. I have an 8320 and it got HOT with this stock cooler. I grabbed a CM 212 EVO which brought down temps significantly. Great build overall though, +1.
Great build. You definitely did well with your budget. +1
I'm just wondering, why that RAM configuration? Other than that confusing little part, it looks like a solid build.
EDIT: I'm just gonna assume that it's an upgrade.
Great setup, great build! I can tell that patience paid off with that cable management.
Thanks! I have no clue why it says that on that program that it's 722MHz. I know for a fact that it is at 1600.
The site did not look good or bad before the update. I really wish they only changed how it looked. Some of the new page layouts are horrible.
Yeah, I guess I should have looked at the pictures more closely.
Not bad. +1
Nice cable routing! I think the GPU is slightly underpowered compared to the other components, but pretty solid build anyways.
I think that the R9 270 would have been a better choice instead of the 660. At least, that's what it was like when I did my research for my own system about a year ago. Anyways, solid budget build. You may want to think about upgrading the RAM sometime soon.
Not bad, but like everyone else is saying, I really would have gone for something other than the 4771.
Pretty beastly build you have here. I would've gone for more than one stick of RAM, but you can always upgrade. +1
Great parts list! Very solid choices, you did your research well.
Nice parts list! Not sure that I agree with the VelociRaptor or the PSU, but everything else looks pretty good.
WHAT HAPPENED. I'M NOT USED TO THIS.
Check, check, check, and check. All goals complete. You sir, are a computer wizard.
I think the motherboard is a little overkill for what you are doing. If you want to run 3 or 4 monitors you also might want a beefier video card. You also probably don't need 760w of power.
I evened it out a bit more, and brought the cost down by almost $100.
I would allocate a little more money to the motherboard. If you live near a Microcenter, they have AMAZING CPU/motherboard combos. I've used that motherboard and it isn't one of my favorites.
That's they only way I could get the cables to stretch, plus the fan should be facing down. They should flip the sticker.
It never gets to 70C, it usually stays under 60. I don't really need watercooling for it.
I was hoping so.
That's why I have a main one horizontal and a secondary one vertical. But with just one it should never be vertical.
That single upright monitor just hurts to look at +1
Exactly. "What is wrong with this picture?"
I've never actually used one but they look so cool IMO.
Ahhh, yes... I remember that one. Beautiful.
I agree, you probably should have at least gone for the Bronze efficiency version of that EVGA PSU. Or maybe even a modular one, for a case that small.
I like the cable management. Personally I like my solution better, but that at least gets them up and out of the way. I can't stand having cables on the floor or hanging down the wall.
I like your build. Your build is nice.
DOPE build. This is insane.
There's a reasons those rubber grommets are there in the back of the case. They are to route your cables.
Very nicely done. That is one heck of a build, I really wish that I could afford that.
Not a bad build. That has to be one of my all time favorite cases.
Awesome job! Your builds are literally the only reason I visit this site.
Pretty good. It wouldn't be my first choice, but it's quiet enough for me and keeps the CPU cool under full load.
It's the Blue Snowball. I wouldn't recommend the color that I have, it just doesn't look real great after a while.
There was one maybe a year or a year and a half ago. But they are rare here.
Sweet build! The speakers really dominate that room. The experience on this thing must be awesome.
Looks awesome. Parts list is great, too.
I wouldn't do insane overclocking with it. For most budget builds it's a great choice. I've used two and they are pretty good.
I can't tell whether or not that was sarcasm.
