Description

Finally no more laptop grapics limitation! Always wanted to build something like this, very satisfied with the performance. 1080p 60Hz ultra everything, anytime. 780T is one of the best case for beginners, ez cable management plenty of space for future upgrades and also it's white with a touch of blue, can't be happier! *Update: new desk, no hanging cables

I think a great upgrade would be your monitor. C'mon man get a 1080p@144Hz /1440p@60Hz+ (optionally with G-sync)! That Dark Rock Pro 3 is so smexy. People might complain about the RM650, but whatever this is still great. Good job on the nice clean build!

"light gaming" Lol. 980 is good for 1440p. You'll blow away 1080p ! Nice build though!

Why the i7? if you aren't doing video editing, you could've saved $120. The PSU is a tier three, so you will want to upgrade that soon. Other than that, I like the build. That is the tiniest desk I have ever seen. :)

I thought that PSU was alright

The tier list may not be perfect, but I don't recommend anything corsair as PSUs go. Only brands I recommend without reservation are XFX and Seasonic. Certain EVGA models are also very good.

The tier list has some major flaws in it.

Hi bro (sis), I am very impressed with your choice of case. Corsair is a good brand when it comes to case, and the look of the case is futuristic !

However, the only drawback of your rig is your choice of PSU. If I was you, I would be picking the EVGA SuperNova G2 650w or even 750w

  • 47 months ago

Yes they are, two packages one is the DC cable set for this type of PSU and another for the 12V DC cable what Corsair selling separate.

So I am planning on using an i7 6700k with a dark rock pro 3 as well. After reading about the skylake cpu bending issue, I started wondering if I should use a lightweight AIO watercooler for my cpu instead of the fairly heavy dark rock pro 3. Have you experienced any issues?

  • 46 months ago

I haven't experienced any negative problems with it so far. I think if you not making it stupidly tighten at the mounting plates and have a decent board to fit it, can't go wrong. Obviously there is a percentage of faulty parts just like any other components of a build, plus on top of it you have no clearance for normal height RAM. I'm using low profile version to fit it. As long as you have enough space in your case and low profile RAM you will be fine! Personally I don't recommend water cooling, as top heat sink can almost achieve the same result without an extra moving part or water included. More reliable, cheaper to repair, silent, longer life span. I would recommend to buy it, but at the end it is up to you what you prefer! mine is 6700K@4.6GHz 1.35V under 70degrees at full load for hours with fan speed 60%!

Thank you for your response. I'm probably going to stick with the Dark Rock Pro 3 for my upcoming build. According to your results, it performs extremely well and silent, which is the main reason I decided to go with this cooler for my build. I'm aiming to get a 4.7Ghz OC, but 4.6GHz is good enough imo. Have you tried pushing your OC to 4.7? There have been many people reporting to have succesfully OCed their i7 6700k to 4.7GHz at around 1.35V. Ofcourse not everyone's CPU will be able to, but it's worth a try imo. I wouldn't up the voltage to more than 1.375V for everyday use though.

This looks great! and I agree with the case being one of the best for beginners! Did you have any problems locking the fan controller in it's slot? I have that case and the fan controller, and I cant get it to lock in place.. seems like the sentry's side plates are too short and the screw holes ion the case are deep inside.. was wondering if you had an issue..

  • 44 months ago

Yes I had the same problem, but after you removing the tool-free latch on the side of the bay you can find the other holes to screw down the sentry panel in it's place. When you think you going to brake it just force it a bit more and it should pop out, then fit the screws into the right holes lining up with the thread on the side of the sentry panel.

I did it. Worked great and now I have the sentry 3 mounted. Thanks a lot bud!

thanks so much! quick question - how exactly did you take them out? And I'm talking about those small side clips at the optical bays.. right? :)

Now since I appointed you my official 780T expert ;) , how were you able to mount 3 front fans on the "outside" of the case. From what I understand, and encountered physically, if you want 3 fans in front you need to mount them instead of the drive cages inside.. How did you get them in there?
