Guess I should post in here since I finally started my build. It's mostly stuff scrounged together from old builds and broken stuff lol. The Gem is the i7-4770. I figure I'll drop the cash on a good processor now and incrementally upgrade everything else. So yeah the cpu is a 4770, 16Gigs of ram (1600MHz 9-9-9-24), Some In Win Dragon Slayer uATX case (love that thing),MSI uATX mobo, 5400 RPM 2.5" drive from a busted laptop, hmm that's it. No optical drive lol...

anyways the stupid WEI is maxed at 5.9 due to the hdd. Would be much higher otherwise. Not that I put much stock in that. The onboard graphics are actually suprisingly decent. Runs most of my games well at 1080p on mid/high settings.

In the future I'll be putting an SSD in there, a pair of RAIDed HDDs, a 770gtx, and an optical drive. But for now it's sufficient. And since I only put about $500 into it, it's pretty good imo.

:)

not bad fallen... hey what are ur thoughts on the evgA 760 4GB FTW with the new dual fan cooling looks sweat

screw a 760... go with a gtx8800gt or a ati x1650 ;)

anyways thats a nice build but the onboard gpu wouldnt cut it for me... i also upgraded from my 8gb ram to 16gb, since i was using around 80% and a crap ton of swap. running a server is no joke ...

Time for a new laptop. thinking about going with this and some ram upgrades

also, it looks like amd might have crossfire fixed for single displays. eyefinity is still full of runt frames, but they're getting somewhere. Just have to enable frame pacing with the new drivers. With the 7990 being 700$ that makes it the king of single monitor performance for sure.

also, unless you fully plan to sli i wouldn't get a 4gb 760, as the 760 by itself doesn't have the horsepower to need 4gb.

I'm not big into PC gaming, so I could be wrong. But 4GB seems like an excessive amount of memory for a 760 and a single monitor. I'd imagine if you're planning on doing multiple monitors the extra ram would be handy. But I could be wrong. Anyways if you did plan on doing multiple monitors, sli-ing a pair of those 4gb 760s would probably be pretty decent for the price. For now I'm going to stick to a single monitor, and a gtx 770 with just 2 gigs of ram. I think that should be ok as I don't plan on doing anything higher than 1080p.

finished my computer a few days ago. this was it before.

i redid the water loop by adding a cpu block and removed the reservoir to go with a closed loop. then i added blue lights in the case and put blue wire sleeving on all the wires to dress them up.

BTW if anyone thinks about sleeving there wires, be prepared to loose about 5 hours of your life.... you would think it only takes about an hour to 2 max, hell no... you must remove every pin from every connector in order for the sleeving to fit on the wires.

and im not even done sleeving all mine... as you can see the hard drive towards the top right has not had its sata cable sleeved. reason being i need a longer sata cable to move the drive where it supposed to be, so i didnt bother sleeving that cable.

im thinkin bout painting the fans either white or blue so they dont stand out so bad, i already painted my psu white as seen in the pics. i believe it made a big difference.

Re: Computer Thread
 
It looks really nice dark. I would paint the fans blue, since there is already a lot of white when the lights aren't on.

Darkmage1991 10-07-2013 06:48 PM

Re: Computer Thread
 
i thought the same thing. i really wanna change teh color of the water lines to more of a darker blue. but it takes somuch time and work to bleed the line of all air :\ without a reservoir i gotta put it all under water and let it run when turning the lines different ways to work out any air.

98Civic 10-07-2013 08:03 PM

Re: Computer Thread
 
I do think a darker blue would look better, but I also don't think the light blue looks bad by any means. If you're not keen on changing it now, just leave it alone until you get bored. It looks fantastic either way.

Darkmage1991 10-07-2013 09:50 PM

Re: Computer Thread
 
thanks man. alot of work put into it. ill paint the fans blue here soon and update with some pics. what you think about the psu? keep er white or maybe paint er blue also?

this will be basically what i want. with the graphics i have shosen obviously and maybe not out of acrylic idk yet there plenty of materiel choices it seems

Re: Computer Thread
 
The back plate idea for the gpu is pretty awesome. Should look badass no matter how you lay the design out. I think the psu should stay white and the top of the psu could be a good place to put a plate like that as well.

Re: Computer Thread
 
well what you guys think about this?

http://i798.photobucket.com/albums/y...ps857d4693.jpg

http://i798.photobucket.com/albums/y...psccb77f49.jpg

i hand painted it all so its not perfect by any means. and i still need to drill the holes to mount it on the gpu. but that will be tomorrow as i just finished it 15 min ago. took me roughly 6 hours to hand paint that ish, alot of cleaning and re painting. it is still wet hence the reason the light is shining randomly on it.
