WHAT DO YOU THINK ???

Hi comrades this is my first ever PC build.

'PARTS'

CPU: In the beginning I was considering an i7 4930k, but it's more for professional editors, so I went with the Intel i7 4770k, it still has hyper threading, it's great for gaming and it's also newer. For my whole life I had Intel and there is nothing that would make me consider AMD as of now.

CPU COOLER: I wanted something low profile for a clean look and powerful as knew that the 4770k generates quite a lot of heat especially when overclocking, so I just went the top of the line Corsair H100i.

MOTHERBOARD: When I think of motherboards, I think of ASUS, so I went with them. Becaus eI had a z87 chip set I had to get a z87 motherboard. There were two choices Sabertooth Z87 or ROG Maximus VI formula. I chose the Sabertooth because, it has TUF parts, 5 year warranty, and a thermal armor which can be painted.

RAM: I wanted something RED and reliable, my friend has some older Corser Vengeance memory and he loves it, so I just went for it. I know it's expensive but, it's a future proof build and I want it to be reliable. Why 2X 8GB (16GB), as I said I'm going to be doing a fair amount of graphical editing, so I thought that i's a right size, and it still leaves me a possibility to upgrade anytime.

GPU: As I said I'm a gamer (not competitive), I just want to have a great experience. My favorite (most played) game is Battlefied 4, and it requires some big cahoonazs, especially at 2560 x 1440. Why did I go with the 780 instead of 780ti, because I'm planning to get another card for SLI (Easter time), and if I would go with the 780ti that's like extra £400 which is a bit to much, even for me, because there is a limit on my budget. Some of you would say, you should have went with Ratheon R9 290X, but there is just something about nVidia that I like. I chose EVGA because their warranty covers overclocking, simple as that.

STORAGE: I went with a 120GB SSD for the core software, like OS, steam, Skype etc. Then I got a 250GB SSD form my games and main programs like Photoshop, AutoCAD, 3DS MAX, etc. Both drives are Samsung 840 EVO series, initially I wanted to get Corsair GTX series, but I saw a video about the 840s on 'Linus Tech Tips' and went with those instead. Finally for my mass storage I got a WD Caviar Black 1TB HDD, because it's reliable.

PSU: For the pwer supply I got Corsair AX860i, it's new, Platinum certified, and it supports Corsair LINK so I didn't really consider anything else. (For those who thinks I need 1200 watts, 860 watts is more than enough for GTX780 SLI)

FANS: Corsair AF and SP 'Quiet edition' fans, because they're good plus they match the style.

CASE: Initially wanted to get a Cooler Master HAF X, but it was just too crazy, plus it had a fan on the side which obstructed the view. Then I saw Corsair 900D, and felt in love with it, but it was too big, I looked at 350D but it was too small, so I needed something in between, and I found the 650D, which was the right size, right look (minimalist, stealthy). I was just about to get it when I saw the 750D and immediately, I knew it was the case I want. I know that some people hate it, but I love it, and that's what matters.

MONITOR: My first choice was an LG 29EA93, because it is a 21:9 monitor which means you get some extra room, but it's not that good for photo editing. In the end I went with a 27" Asus PB278Q IPS monitor, it has a 2560x1440p resolution which gives me more space to work, and colours look AWESOME. I will never be gaming on a 1080p monitor again, because everything looks just so much crisper, sharper and bigger. For this kind of money it's a steal.

MOUSE: I got the Roccat Cone XTD, because my friend has it, it's comfortable, it's great for FPS and it has cool lights.

KEYBOARD: Corsair Vengeance K70, I saw it at a gaming conference, and I just liked it, so I got it.

MODS: 1. I have painted the GTX780 front shield, because it just looks better. 2. I got Bit Fenix cable extensions instead of Corsair individually sleeved cables because I'm going to do a PSU/drive bay cover so you wouldn't see them anyway, something like this (http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=259735) 3. I got an LED RGB light strip to illuminate the case, I got an RGB strip because you can change the colour, and I like both red and white light, because with red everything is red, where as the white just highlights red bits. 4. I also plan to mod the MOBO thermal armour.

PROBLEMS: The only major problem I had, was a broken HDD. I has worked for 5 days, but then every time I switched the PC on ,I get a message on my screen saying (S.M.A.R.T. statud BAD, Backup and Replace), so I had to get a new HDD. I also had a small problem with my H100i. I wanted to put it into a push-pull configuration but the screws were too short so I had to take out the rubber corners from the SP120 fans.

I haven't done any major overclocking because I haven't done enough research, if any of you could suggest any places to learn from I would appreciate it.

This is a damn work of art! Don't mind me while I drool for a bit over here in the corner...

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 16 points 9 months ago

I have to admit that the aesthetic side of this build was more important than functional, but yeah thanx a lot...

 
 
skemble [17 Builds] 12 points 9 months ago

Sometimes there are builds that look great, but aren't balanced or under performing for the value. This isn't one of those. I look at every single build that gets posted on this site and these are the ones that I really enjoy. Both beautiful and powerful. It's a tantalizing combo!

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 10 points 9 months ago

Thank you, I really appreciate it

Electrospeed 15 points 9 months ago

After a dry spell, we finally have someone who can build a ludicrously beautiful computer and use a camera properly! Amazing, just amazing!

(if I can interject a bit here, I'd almost have gone for the 4820k or the 4930k and gotten the creature comforts and features that come with an X79 board, but that's just me.)

I'm considering creating 982973 accounts and upvoting this build on all of them...

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 9 months ago

I was thinking about the 4930k but, I'm not really going to need x79 processor. The 4770k is slower the same in 3DS MAX but, not by much, plus it's much cheaper, so ... well thanx anyway

 
 
ZionIsLast 1 point 3 months ago

The 4820k is actually quite useless :/

 
 
Electrospeed 1 point 3 months ago

Not if you want an X79 board.

But other than that, yeah.

 
 
DragonFireXY 1 point 2 months ago

That's a really specific amount of accounts.

Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

Thanx, I do enjoy it

 
 
ArrKayCee [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

This build is so beautiful! I normally could make a list of things to change in a build but for this the only "improvement" I could see being made is going with the Asus Maximus VI Formula instead because it matches the color scheme, otherwise I'd say this build is perfection.

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 9 months ago

Thanx, it's nice to hear that.. At first I wanted to go with the Asus Maximus VI Formula, but then I found out, you can paint (mod) the Thermal Armour on the Sabertooth, which I'm going to do later.

 
 
ArrKayCee [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

Oh nice!

 
 
Xiigen [2 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

This build is simply stunning. Possibly the best one I have ever seen on this site. Well done with absolutely everything.

Thank you very much I just want to inspire people as others inspired me.

 
 
linsyschopman 1 point 9 months ago

Looks amazing +1

Where did you get the leds from?

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

thank you I got them from Amazon, these lights are amazing, except the tape that holds it, but I would recommend it anyway. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007H39XLA/ref=oh_details_o00_s01_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 
 
thomasmorgan 1 point 1 month ago

Those are 5 meter strips. How did you get all of that to fit in your case? Can you shorten the strips or were they actually a good length? Just run the cables for the ac adapter through the back of the case?

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 1 month ago

you can cut them

 
 
therasmuskrogh 1 point 9 months ago

SLEEK! Nice that you realised, that you wouldn't be needing a 900D, wich many people belive they do. As a result, their builds look empty and 'lonely'. Again; great work!

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 9 months ago

thanx, I was thinking about the 350D, but I'm planning to water cool and it wouldn't be have enough space to do it as I want to do it.

 
 
pencilprince 1 point 9 months ago

nice! you know im planning to build my rig next month and the only difference of my rig and you is the mobo im choosing the asus maximus VI hero..also on my video card still cant decide between 290x,290,780 and 780ti still waiting for the price to go back to normal.

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

thanx... yeah it was a VERY VERY hard choice between the Sabertooth and the Maximus VI Formula, but I like the fact that I can paint the thermal Armour, otherwise I would probably just go with the Maximus.

 
 
lordomega 1 point 9 months ago

This is AMAZING!!! No wonder you are an Architect. I have honestly never seen a PC that looks so good.

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 9 months ago

I'm not an architect yet but, thank you.

Those cables FTW! I am torn I saw a set of red black and Grey ones that I can't make my mind up over the solid red... The paint on your 780 amazing what a set up... and how about that 750D... I love every inch of mine.. Thank for the comment on my build and after looking at your I need to refine some more...lol sick build mate, just sick, well done..

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

Thanx.. I love too how the 780 turned out, I've seem white ones, but I haven't seen a red one before. I was deciding between the Black/Red and the pure Red ones, but I just went these, and I love them. There is a build with the black/red cables, you can check it out http://pcpartpicker.com/b/LmP

 
 
Kelleytech [6 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

Man I think I am sold on the black and red... but damn sli 780ti on a single monitor yikes....

 
 
Daisyahoy [2 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

This looks great! But what are those two red cables leaving the motherboard power set to the right?

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

Thax, those are the fan extension cables

 
 
nada190 [3 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Yeah it's my favourite part of the build too

 
 
BioVolt [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

Hi, great build!

Can I ask what "red material" you have covering all the access holes / SSD drive cages on the inside right hand side of the case? I like the idea and was looking for ideas if I can achieve this without the need to buy Perspex and have to cut and paste vinyl stickers etc...I wondered if there is some other way to get past it.

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

I cheated. I've used the AX860i box, because it's red on the inside. I just cut out the shapes and placed them into the case, it's a temporary solution but it works. Thank you.

 
 
BioVolt [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

I don't care about "cheating", if it works and looks good, who cares, I have the same case and I have the 760i, I wonder if it has red in it, I might have to steal your idea :)

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

The idea isn't copyrighted so... ;)

Gooberdad [2 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

That is beautiful. You sold me on painting the PCB cover and getting sleeved cables. Wow.

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 8 months ago

Yeah it's probably the first ever red ACX cover in the world, I've seen white ones before but not red, and thanx

 
 
Gooberdad [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

Sorry late reply. Just looks fantastic.

 
 
Positronic [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

Awesome. I'm thinking of building something very similar. Definitely the coolest looking, cleanest build I've seen on here ever.

Question: for the LED strip installation, where did you hide the remote control box? Also, did you have to plug the strip into anything on the computer to get it to work?

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Thanx. I'm still not 100% happy with it, but I think it's good enough for a first build. Answer: If you look closely at the PSU, you can see a flat, black 'duck tape' strip in the far corner. It had to be taped ,so it wouldn't shine there. I had to remove one of the PCI slots in order to run the cable out. NO, you plug it straight into the wall, which means you have to somehow find a way to run it out of your case, (Maybe there are some connectors, but I couldn't find any).

 
 
Positronic [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

Great! Thanks for that! One last thing...those Bitfenix cables...is there any way to tell exactly which ones and how many I need for my build? I'd like to use them as well because they look so good and clean, but other than the main SATA and 24 Pin connector extensions, I wouldn't be sure which to get.

This is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Positronic/saved/3Dgx

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

They are all extensions, so you can get as much as you want, but remember that you are adding length to your cables, so cable management might be a little bit tricky. Cables: MOTHERBOARD: 24 pin, 8 pin (EPS 12V VERY IMPORTANT) GPU: 8 pin, 6 pin From that you can get as many extras as you want, SATA, fan, USB...

 
 
Positronic [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

Thank you very much! Yes, the PSU was a bit pricey and is more than I currently need, but I do plan on adding another 770 for SLI in the future as well as a couple of other things, so I wanted to be safe than sorry later on just in case. I only hope my build will look half as good as yours.

 
 
thunderdan602 [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Question sir. You were able to run all of your case fans (including the 4 fans on your radiator) directly from the motherboard itself and a fan switch was required?

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Answer sir. All of my CASE fans are running directly from my motherboard. The four radiator fans are connected straight into the pump unit (H100i).

 
 
thunderdan602 [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Thank you for your quick response. And with the four fans running off of the pump unit, there is no issue as far as the pump itself making noise or anything?

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

No, not really, there is a bit of sound coming from those fans now, but that's because I'm trying to overclock my CPU, otherwise everything is relevantly quiet.

 
 
LokStock [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

Great build, I was wandering how did you install the YAGGU SET as I wanna add illuminate my case :D, Also how good are the AF140/AF120 because I want to replace my stock fans.

My build - http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/F1J

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Thanx, yours great too! The Yaggu is plugged directly into the mains, so you will have to find out a way to route the cable from your case, I just removed one of the PCI slots. About the fans, my stock fans were Corsair AF140L, the same as AF140. To be honest I changed them only because of the aesthetic side, they are ok.

 
 
LokStock [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

Thanks :) I will purchase the led lights and I might buy some of them fans if I get my new GPU - http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-03gp42784kr. Wont buy it from the UK, cost way to much.. maybe from Hong Kong when I head back so no import tax tehehe xD

 
 
Positronic [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

Question...how did you get four fans on the radiator? I've tried installing the fans on the top and having the radiator underneath so I can pull in cool air from outside, but the screws that come with the H100i fans are not long enough to reach all the way through.

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Yeah I know. You have to remove the rubber corners.

 
 
Positronic [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

Are you talking about the rubber grommets on the top of the case itself or the ones on the radiator fans?

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

the rubber grommets on the FANS

 
 
RegencyTen 1 point 8 months ago

This is an amazing build. I plan on using the same case.

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

thanx, I love this case

 
 
Retroman 1 point 8 months ago

Easiest +1 ever lol

1 question for you though, with the RGB LED strip, where did you setup the IR Receiver for changing colors etc? I actually have a set of those laying around that I never used for my home theater setup and you've inspired me to mess around and try them on my build, however, It dawns on me that I would need to have the receiver somewhere accessible, where did you place yours?

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 8 months ago

thanx, I've just placed it behind the case. You only need to switch it once a day or once a week in my case, so yeah. good luck

 
 
Retroman 1 point 8 months ago

thanks for the speedy reply, I'll give that a go. I agree I wouldn't see myself changing colors too often, I was mostly curious as to if you had it inside or outside of the case, but outside in the back its good to know, I'll muck about with that :) cheers mate

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 8 months ago

I had to run it throughout the PCI E slot

 
 
Retroman 1 point 8 months ago

hehe that was exactly what I was thinking of doing, thx bro, you've confirmed what I should do, thanks so much :)

 
 
Whippa92 1 point 7 months ago

This is an amazing build! Functionality combined with style and class. The cable management is impeccable as well.

That desktop wallpaper.......drool may I ask what it is and where you got it?

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 7 months ago

Thanx it's actually my personal badge. Modern Russian 2 headed eagle with my logo in the centre. So yeah I made it myself, it's a simple coat of arms kinda

 
 
Turtlewaf 1 point 7 months ago

das so beautiful :O

 
 
KidZer0 1 point 6 months ago

Awesome build. Also where did you get the wallpaper for your monitor screen?

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Thanx dude... everyone keeps asking me this question. I actually made it myself, it's kind of my logo/emblem/coat of arms. Based on a Russian double headed eagle, but in a simplistic modern way, and in the centre is my actual logo Y & O

 
 
Maegus [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Thanks for stopping by my build! +1 to you as well for a great build. Clean, nicely themed, and very well thought out.

 
 
Painwithin [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Did you later on clock your memorey to 1866 instead of leaving it at the stock 1333 that the board sets it to?

Great build though im still rockin my i7 2600k :D check it out if you want.

CaptainwolfieXD 1 point 6 months ago

so are the red cables apart of the power supply or are they separate if so where can you get them

 
 
CaptainwolfieXD 1 point 6 months ago

thank you and also nice build

 
 
cajunsloth 1 point 6 months ago

I plan on building a rig very similar to yours and I'm very curious to how well your 780 performs on that monitor. I have heard you need at least 1 780 ti to the get the most out of 1440p. Btw awesome build. You have definitely inspired me +1.

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Yeah I would recommend a 780 ti, as the single 780 struggles to keep high fps in BF4 on Ultra, but it's still a great card. BTW I love this monitor, 9/10, the only draw back is the price, but it's worth every penny. Thank you and good luck. I'm lo oozing forward to see your build

 
 
cajunsloth 1 point 6 months ago

Thank you for the advice. I will for sure go for that monitor then, and I will definitely go for the 780 ti because I do not plan to go sli in the near future. Also, if you have already painted the thermal shield on your Sabertooth, I would love to see it. Once I get my parts I'm planning on painting mine blue; however, I'm still unsure how exactly to do so. So I would greatly appreciate it if you have any tips or advice.

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

I haven't done it yet coz I finish my university on the 12th and after that I'll finish all molding

 
 
cajunsloth 1 point 6 months ago

Best of luck! Make sure to upload photos when it's all done; I would love to see them. Thanks again for your help.

quick question. how do you power the LED's? do you just hook them up to the psu?

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

nope. you connect it to a power brick which the connects into the mains plug

 
 
Daltonious 1 point 6 months ago

mains plug?

PCBuilder005 1 point 5 months ago

Just wondering, which company has the better built GPU? EVGA, ASUS, Msi, or Gigabyte.

EVGA if ur planning to overclock

Atom 1 point 5 months ago

I only overclock the CPU after a long time of usage or if the system begins to slow down. So if I needed to upgrade my CPU at that time, I would just overclock it and that's it. You upgraded your CPU for free (:

I'm actually starting it now, but it's in Russian so you wouldn't understand it anyway. I'm 19

Nice work. I'm hoping to start my own first custom build soon. I am going to buy a plain case and airbrush some design on there too. Good idea with the 16GB RAM and SSD drives - Must be FAST!

Why did you get red cable extensions when you had red cables

 
 
Ninjadudewhat 1 point 3 months ago

bitfenix cable extensions, you can get them on amazon & a few other places

this is an awesome build, i love the mods youve done. i have a few questions about the leds. i want some rgb leds in my build, and liked the remote idea.

heres the questions:

  1. how did you power the power brick for the leds? did you use a molex adapter or lead the power cable out of the case somehow.

  2. how long is the led strip(s) you used?

  3. where did you place the ir reciever for the remote?

  4. do you still happen to have link(s) for all the led stuff?

Very nice build. I was wondering how you have your fan intake/exhaust set up? I'm still pretty new to PC building and I realized my PC case isn't big enough for 2 780s and my temps aren't very good with some games. I read that having more exhaust is better but I also read that more intake is better. Which fans of yours are intake/exhaust? Thanks,

Nick

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 3 months ago

Yeah I fixed that fan ;)

Front: 2x 140 intake

Bottom: 120 intake

Back: 140 exhaust

Top: 4x 120 exhaust (h100i in push-pull)

I'm currently in the midst of a similar build myself. I'm also using a 750D, Sabertooth, h100i, and sleeved cables. I've been using your rig for inspiration for a while, to see what the parts would look like together before I purchased them, and to reference your cable management as I build.

I just wanted to drop you a line in these comments and let you know. I think your build looks great. Thanks for your work.

Fantastic build! absolutely gorgeous! I was wondering how you installed the led lights? And exactly which bitfenix cables did you get?

 
 
Yevgeniy_Onegin [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

I listed them before, just look in the comments

Did you paint the gtx 780 yourself? If so can you please tell me what paint you used, im building a pretty similar build with the ti version, 4790k, and ROG Maximus Formulla VII. My main colors are black and red and was thinking of changing the color of the gpu to match the asthetics of the rest of the build. Thanks in advance : )
