Comment reply on TrentScott's Completed Build: Gaming Build for $2000 AUD

Hi, so far the Motherboard has done everything I need it to. I don't have any experience with other boards as this is my only PC build. I don't know what your planning to do in the bios, but the bios has every option that I needed including custom fan speeds for individual fans (except for CPU fans which can only spin at the same speed). One thing worth mentioning is that I accidentally bent one of the USB 3.0 header pins, so they are not the strongest, however I think every modern board has fairly weak pins. I hope this answer helps.

Do you mean an 'air CPU cooler'? If so the CM 212 EVO is always a good cheap option. Or a Be Quiet CPU cooleler, as long as it will not cover any RAM slots.

The h105 is my first liquid cpu cooler so I don't know how it compares to others, I can say that the pump is a bit loud and definitely audible. The main advantage to having one is aesthetics I think. As for leaking it really shouldn't, it has a 5 year warranty and I have seen no complaints of leaks. Hope this helped.

HDDs are old technology, this was built to last several years.

I rated three stars because of coil whine. For the price I feel it should not have any problems.

I got the i5 from Centrecom a few months back. Its been replaced with the i5 4690k since then.

I don't know if that's true but with the case I have, it will take some effort to replace it (not that I have a spare PSU).

My desk is actually only 120x60cm. If you have the room I would get a larger desk.

Thanks, I don't know exactly what desk it is, just something I got from a local office furniture place. The monitors are ASUS vx239h.

I have all fans running on a low rpm so it is quite noticeable when under heavy load. Here is a video I found with many GTX 970 cards to explain the problem. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12amU2ovGdQ&feature=youtu.be (It's a buzzing/ticking noise not a high pitched noise)

I was thinking about wrapping both side panels + top and front panels, but now I don't know how hard it will be to make cuts for the mesh and buttons. Maybe I will just do the sides although that might look a little bit weird. (I have to cover the side panel because I messed up the finish when i was cutting a larger window, its a long story)

OMG, I did the same thing with my case, however I plan to wrap it in carbon fibre vinyl.

I would definitely get a z97 motherboard and a newer case (unless your completely certain you want that case). I think the Corsair 450d is worth looking at. That CPU cooler is also a bit old, a newer one is the Corsair H75. This is just my advice, hope it helps.

Looks quite good but I would suggest getting a more powerful GPU instead of two 'average' ones. I wouldn't worry about the case, It looks like it has decent ventilation. Do you really need a sound card or will on-board audio be ok? Also that monitor is fairly old, I would get a newer model if possible. Hope this helps a bit.

What configuration do you have for the front fans. Push or pull?

No, you don't have to, unless you want to be able to connect to the internet wirelessly.

If your talking about overclocking an i5-4440, you can't, only 'k' series cpu's allow that. Also you do need an over clocking capable motherboard. :)

So a Gigabyte R9 290 will run about as cool as a Gigabyte GTX770 or 780?
