    My 2013 build! RATE

    Hello! so i wanted to build a new computer for a while now but my mom didn't want me to spend money on it but for my 14 birthday [aug 1] i didn't ask for anything i just asked for me to be able to build my new computer and she and my dad said it was ok but i must use my own money and it can't go over $3,000 so i built this i want you guys to rate it to see if its really good or if im just wasting my money.


    I'm overclocking the cpu also i think i can bump it up to 4.0GHz

    I Have no idea why you're buying a 690.

    0/10. Motherboard doesn't even support the CPU. Would've been funny watching you trying to build that. Overclocking a 3960X to 4.0Ghz is laughable considering it goes up to 3.9Ghz on turbo clocks. Do your research.

    ​A 690.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    and as Doc put out, good luck with building this

    Since you obviously need to re-think your hardware choices, I feel it is necessary to say that case is ugly as hell.

    All you've done is looked at prices and went
    "Yep, that's expensive so it should be good" and ticked the box

    Do your research, save up to a car if not

    Everything looks good except if you're going to spend up to 3000$ I recommend the X79 sabertooth mobo and the intel i7 3930k with either a 780 or 2 670's and I recommend Corsair Vengeance RAM

    Did you even look at the specs or are you naturally incompetent.

    I read the specs. My brother can get his intel i7-3930k up to 5.0 GHz w/ liquid cooled with a XSPC raystorm 480mm radiator (currently clocked at 4.0). He also has (4x4GB) 16GB Corsair Vengeance Quad Channel Memory at 1866 MHz CAS 9-10-9-27-1, an ASUS Sabertooth X79 Motherboard LGA Socket 2011, 2x ASUS GTX 670 4GB in SLI and to top it off an Azza Fusion 4000 Super Tower Case. I'm pretty sure it beats this computer build by about 2000$ worth. My brother spent 5000$ for this exact setup. Best that's out right now from what he says.

    I'm sure your brother has a big epeen and all but I was talking about the fact that you said "everything looks good" yet you failed to see the glaring incompatibility in OP's build. And your brothers build is far from best right now.

    The nvidia drivers for the 700 series are broken, I have 3 different builds with 2 different 700 series card, all of them have some kind of major driver issue. And you can't downgrade the version on the 700 series... For now I would stick to the 600 series. And that 1150 mobo literally crippled me... Also, you build high end hardware with the worst case on planet earth...

    Place your order on those components and make a video about you building the PC, you will get your money tripled with the youtube money you'll get from the video... haha
