not sure where else to ask but is this an ok build?

i do most of my gaming on my ps4, i just need a new computer because my current one is shit.

there are a handful of PC exclusive titles i want to play but none of them are very system intensive. i also plan on dual booting if that matters.

anything i should change before i pull the trigger?
>>
>>52608996
The only thing that is color corrected inside the case is the graphics card because I took this at sunset and some of the sun's light was giving the 980ti reflection a pewter color. That and the wooden shelf has the vibrancy turned down because it's an ugly orange brown.
>>
>>52609050
The 950 could be changed. Maybe save up some money and get a 380 or 290x.

I don't think backplates work that way. It's sagging down from the slot. You need to prop it up using something.

bclk overclocking doesn't work every well with haswell-e because the most you can deviate is about 2 and it brings up heaps of other issues

If it's Skylake it might be worth keeping it at 4.4/3.2.

>>52615692
quieter? really? have you never used blacks?

all that money and cheap out on hard drives.

i've seen so many do this, even people with two titan x's in sli. i don't get it. you have the money but cheap out.

its like buying a 600hp engine and tossing it into a 1994 toyota corolla.
>>
>>52615826
not op, but seeing the memory layout, its haswell-e

but i would go with 4.4 / 3200 as well. 100mhz less cpu, or 800mhz less ram.
>>
>>52615832
Shit analogy. Speed of the media storage drive doesn't influence your experience all that much.
>>
>>52615858
no, its not.

you spent $200 on a power supply, $1,300 on video cards, $90 on a cpu cooler, and buy best buy grade $40 hard drives.

you care so much about everything else, but cheap out and don't give a shit about the drives storing all your cartoon porn. you have all these nice parts and you slap bottom of the barrel hard drives in it.

a wonderful, powerful, expensive system and you use greens. thats like buying a beautiful diamond necklace, a diamond that costs $4,000, and you slap it on a cheapo $20 metal necklace with gold paint from walmart.

THANK YOU. Almost every god damn build here routes them right in front of the fans. I find myself making builds with cables routed to the side now, but cables OVER the GPU is the way to go. Also, that's some actually good cable management that's hardly ever seen here.

Still needs an exhaust fan though, at least for aesthetics.

mix of Trixx and afterburner. I have power limit to 150% and core voltage at +94mV.

Are Fractal silent fans not really silent?

I think you just might be slightly hard of hearing. Then again, some fans could be considered somewhat quiet in open air, but as soon as you put them on a rad there's noise.

>>52616988

>TY-147A
>Dang, those are twice as much

Huh, they cost like 10€ here. Don't bother tho, it's a really miniscule difference. Basically if you find a fan whose clicking at low rpm and whining at high rpm you can't hear that's it.
>>
>>52616873
The quietest Fractal fans I've seen came from an R2, they're nominally 1000rpm.

Do you happen to know which pwm fans can ramp down the lowest? The NF-F12 and the one from 212 Evo are pretty good in that respect but what others are there?
>>
>>52617064
Yeah, it's fine for me during summer, when I open the window and there's breeze, birds, leaves and shit... During winter it's dead silent, however, and fan noise just drives me up the wall. I've even ditched mechanical drives from my computers. I need help ;_;
>>
>>52617103

Thanks. I suppose it is what it is. The price I pay for forgoing a silent case for muh ricer window.

Oh well.
>>
>>52617113
Uh... I don't have that many PWM fans, but Noiseblocker M12-PS go down to about 400. I think I would've kept using them but one day something broke and one of them would start vibrating violently whenever it would go past ~800 or so RPM. TY-147A go down to 300 or so, and they have 105mm mounting holes. Scythe Slipstream 1200rpm are quiet-ish, if you need cheap fans. They're not PWM, but undervolt nicely.

Also fan identity don't really matter much. 140mms are quieter than equivalent 120mm, but the best thing you can do is removing superfluous fans. I don't know if your setup needs the top fans but removing those will do a big difference. Just watch your temps. Also turn your power supply the other way

My server only does PWM so that's why I'm looking for those. I'd need four new poop fans, so if I could go with anything a bit cheaper I probably would.

How good are those PWM fan splitters that drive 3-pin fans? Phanteks has one at least.

On most mobos only CPU is PWM controlled, the rest aren't. Splitters are just as described, what did you expect. Just check the amperage of your mobo and the fans you plan to connect. You might need to buy a splitter that's fed power from PSU and the PWM signal from the mobo, like pic related.

That's true, but this is an actual server board and all the headers are really PWM. They can be controlled in three groups too, though it's a bit fiddly (edit a config file, update it through the EFI shell etc).

So if I want silence, my options are buying four PWM fans or getting an active splitter like you described. This is the Phanteks one I mentioned. Any experience using these? How far can they undervolt the fans?
>>
>>52617849
Just look up the specs dude. I personally use a 4 channel Scythe voltage controller in a 3.25" drive bay, since I don't really fiddle with my fans, just set it to my max tolerable noise level and leave it running. It does like ~4-12v.

A GTX 980ti can barely even maintain 120hz @ 1080p (ultra / max) in last years AAA titles, don't even mind this year.

If you're going to drop settings the 980ti or Furry X are your only options for 1080p ultra 120hz for current year AAA games.

http://www.maximumpc.com/nvidia-geforce-gtx-980-ti-review/
(Scroll down to the benches).

As far as a 390 or 970 from a 280x - it will be a noticeable bump for your settings @ 1080p, may allow you to manage 1440p in 2013 or earlier games.

i use a swiftech pwm splitter and the max you can daisy chain a pwm splitter is 8 fans. any more and it reduces the pwm single to low where they cannot control the fans.

pwm works by not "undervolting" in the traditional sense. the fans still receive their full 12v's. but instead, breaks, or "pauses" are sent in the current to control the speed of the fan.

think of it as spinning a fan by flicking it. the more you flick it, the faster it goes. the less you flick it, the more it slows down.

using a pwm splitter is no different than using a header on your motherboard. the plus side is that with a powered splitter, you can hook up more fans and more power hungry fans than what the header provides. all the header provides to the splitter is rpm monitor and the pwm signal.
>>
>>52622745
also want to add the benefit of pwm over undervolting is you don't get the odd sounds from certain motors when not feeding them their desired voltage.

You can cable manage with the storm scout. It's hard, but can be done. I loved this case.
>>
>>52625548
Really? This case has been a pain in the ass for me ever since the day I bought it. I kind of regret going for a Mini ITX mobo too, since I was originally planning on getting a new case when I did this build... but of course that never happened.

Cant tell you the number of builds Ive done in the Source 210 for clients and family members. For $30, it is rather feature packed and can handle tall CPU coolers. Perfect for any use really.

>>52621906
there is no possible way to route that cpu cable anywhere and the cable will no go behind the board without the side panel entering bend gate.
>>
>>52625877
Yeah they usually leave about an inch or so that you can hide it all behind the mobo. It depends on on the case really.

Other than that, standard build. Intel or amd cpu? I pity you if youre running AMD chip on msi board.

Why the baby gpu?

Good choice in power supply but why fan facing up? I mean it doesnt make too big a difference but should usually have psu fan facing down so it breathes fresh air from the outside of the case instead of warm air from inside.

If you're gonna keep it that long, you should really have positive pressure in your case so you don't have to clean it every month.

That's a shit ton of dust if it's only been a month.

All these faggots fell for the meme loop, meanwhile your GPU's running at 80c+...

protip: if you're going to use liquid cooling, build a custom loop for both the CPU and the GPU (and northbridge if you can find a block).
>>
>>52635004
>i fell for the custom loop meme THIS HARD.
>>
>>52635066
By all means, enjoy your under-clocked toaster.

Meanwhile I'm running my cards 15% faster at room temperature.
>>
>>52635133
Lel, like, how fucking dumb are you? Let me explain it, because holy jesus this is a serious situation.

Lets do the math.

AT MINIMUM You need one custom water block for your GPU, thats 100 extra bucks, One good pump (Another 75) and a decently sized radiator, If you're planning on doing serious over clocking you NEED TWO. Another 150-200. Then there's all the misc parts like tubing and liquid, that's another 50.

You spent an extra 425 dollars, so that you can over clock your shit a little bit more and extend the life of your cards. But let me clue you in on something clownboy. Those cards you're working so hard to extend the life of wont be worth SHIT in 3 years. EVERY SINGLE PERSON who doesn't just have mad dosh laying around doing absolutely nothing regrets their purchase of a custom loop because all that EXTRA MONEY you spent becomes literally DEVALUED over time.

Meanwhile, my shit runs within operating temperatures and I can STILL over clock it and get 15% extra performance out of it using the cooler that the manufacturer put on it and in 3-5 years when it's burnt up, old and used I can comfortably stick it up on the wall and buy another one and repeat the process and guess what? I won't have to buy another 150 dollar custom water block for it so that I can continue to justify my wasted purchase of a "Closed loop system".

Don't you EVER again come around here and claim people NEED custom loops. CLC's do not compare in performance to closed loops but they are BY FAR much more cost effective and you're a god damn moron if you think a custom loop is anything but a e-peen showboating bell and whistle that you DONT NEED but instead WANT.

Wanna game at high res/graphics settings?
NEEDS:
Good cooler for CPU (Air or liquid CLC)
Good motherboard
Good graphics card
Good PSU
Good airflow
Acceptable amounts of ram

WANTS:
Custom loops


But sure, feel free to keep telling yourself that you "Needed" that 450 dollar custom loop.

Retard.

Also, since you obviously don't know shit about liquid cooling, let me clue you in a little.

You don't do it to extend the life of your equipment (that's just an added bonus), you do it to get better performance, higher clocks, and more voltage. But guess what, all those things generate extra heat and air is extremely inefficient at transferring heat so we use liquid cooling instead.

No you don't need 2 radiators either for an efficient loop.

My entire cooling setup cost about $200 (and maybe $10 extra on tubing), that's $50 more then your all-in-one meme shitblock.
I'd like to see you try to pull the same kind of clocks as a liquid cooled GPU, you'll probably fry your card in a few minutes.

And no, you don't need to buy an extra water block each time you upgrade your cards.
There are cards that already come with the water block installed on them.
