HAF 912 Case build - Thanks to everyone who helped me!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Overclock.net literally made me return 50% of my stuff and get a great motherboard, a power supply with unparallel ripple suppression for the value and a great CPU overclock (4.0ghz, 2800mhz CPU-NB) and ram OC (7-8-7-24). Also you guys helped me with a great OC for my GTX460 and all the other things.

CPU could go higher OC but i like my temps,
airflow is crazy good, the CPU cooler lines up perfectly with the exhaust and the ULTRA performance fans push out 80cfm, altogether great temps for air cooled.

Cables are not perfect yet, i want to sleeve some but its pretty clean. Altogether i did not spend to much ($125 GPU) ($120 CPU) ($50 case) ($70 PSU) ($200 mobo) ($35 CPU cooler) ($50 fans) ($40 fan controller) + some taxes

AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE c3 @ 4.0ghz (1.425v) 2800mhz (1.35v) CPU-NB - 30degree idle 51 degree load ***upgrading to a BD CPU in the near future, thats why i payed more for a mobo than a CPU, this is temporary!

MSI GTX460 Cyclone Edition 768mb - 925core/1850 shader 1050memory - 55degrees load (1.087v)
Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 USB3 AM3+ -Great quality, stays cold, OC great, dual BIOS.
Kingston HyperX blu - 2x 2gb 1600mhz 7-8-7-24 @1.69v
Antec TP650

Most of all im really impressed with the performance from my GPU for the price. Also its temperatures are super low, its really great! I would highly recommend it. Fan is completely silent at 55 degrees and all the way to 61 (highest ever seen).

Performance - Crysiswarhead : Enthusiast settings (max) 4xAA = 35fps consistently @ 1920x1080 (768mb vram is bottlenecking me)

Battlefield BC2 - 1920x1080 max graphics, 32xCSAA only HFOA off - 60fps minimum, 80fps maximum

Metro2033 - Dx11 max graphics 1920x1080, low AA - 15fps - 45fps (15fps during few dark spots and you look into a strong lighted area with lots of dust effects, lots of complaints of performance hits on these few areas of the game)

GTA IV - EFLC max graphics 1920x1080, detail and vehicle density. View distance limited to 30 by GTA IV because of small vram ( should of bought the 1gb...) - 40 to 60fps

Just Cause 2 - Maxed out @ 1920x1080 = 60fps









red&white cables are temperature sensors for sycthe fan controller

CM storm inferno mouse. Great features, quality, price, macros, software

yeah i really like it too, will clean up the cables a bit more, i wanted to paint the inside black but i wanted to put it together and was to anxious lol.

going to sleeve some stuff too. Love the airflow, only complaint is CM recommends that the side door you use a 120mm or 140mm as an intake to hit your gpu right... but if you mount the fan on the side door grill, it will make a whistling noise if you got high rpm fans! Super super loud noise, i used 1.5" spacers and long screws and the noise is gone but the fan is not flush with the side door it sticks out

Im focusing on my keyboard right now (logitech g15). Its ugly orange LEDs is ruining what i got going on here. I ordered red leds and im going to try to put new LEDs in and paint the whole keyboard a nice gloss black and in red lettering paint 2JZ GTE. Im loving PC gaming, and my logitech G27 steering wheel comes next week! Can't wait to play sim racers on my PC!
