post #181 of 3052
I saw one at Fry's today and I LOVED IT!!!!! Got to get one now, luckily they had a 900D to compare to since I have a 900D.

Those are some really good numbers there. I've been tempted to sell my 770 and go with a 780, I can only imagine the prices on the 800 series cards could be worse than what we have now especially with cryptocurrencies. Would I pretty much just be benefiting from more VRAM and higher bus on a 780 @1080p?

My card is a 770ACX where it blows the air back in the case, but with the ventilation on the side of the case it helps push the air out. My GPU hasn't gone above 59 degrees under load. I don't really think it matters if you go reference or non reference here. The only issue you have to worry about is the PCB on some of these cards and if it will hit the roof, like the DCUII or the 780Ti Kingpin.

Higher bus maybe, but more VRAM isn't going to help you much at 1080p. You just aren't using that much memory. I doubt you'd see much improvement at all. Higher frame rates for sure, but you should already be getting playable frame rates on just about anything you want to play with the 770. Unless you start going to a higher resolution I wouldn't bother. Certainly not worth the cost.

Yeah, for the most part I am getting some pretty good framerates with the 770. I was messing around with Thief the past week and it was taxing my system a bit, so was thinking of jumping up to a 780 since the Ti would be way out of my price range.

Linus has already done like 3 videos with this case in the last month, new one just posted a few days ago.

Hi All,

I have been following this thread for some time and I am very impressed at the builds people have put together, but finally I decided on the 250D. I placed my order this morning and hopefully will get it towards the end of this coming week, stocks are damn limited for these little beasts!

I do actually have an idea for the other components but to be honest I do not have much experience with building PCs. I hope to place the orders for the below components in the next few days.

Components:
CPU: i5 4670k
CPU Cooler: H100i
Motherboard: MSI Z87i Gaming.. Went for this one simply due to the awesome colours and design.. been considering the VI Impact mobo also
Case: Obsidian 250D (Ordered Already)
PSU: RM550... I have noticed a lot of other people here use the AX series and some have mentioned the RM series is a major pain due to cable lengths? What would you guys recommend here? I did see an AX series with red and black cables that just looked awesome!
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 16Gb DDR3-1600... . anyone know of quality RAM that would match the colour of the motherboard better? Red perhaps?
GFX: MSI N770 TF OC 2Gb.. will this card fit well? I have not seen anyone else using this card?

I noticed people have been buying additional fans, AF140? SP120? with varying configs. What would you recommended to have? swap the 2 fans on the H100i for 2 x SP120? set to intake? swap the front one to AF140 for intake and have positive air pressure?

Regarding any recommendations, budget wise it would be within 30% of the price of the components listed above, I currently live in Austria, Europe if that is relevant. I intend to some some Overclocking at some point smile.gif

Thanks a lot guys! Keep up the great work on the builds.

Thanks a lot guys! Keep up the great work on the builds.

I would recommend getting 2xSP120's for the H100, much quieter fans than the ones that come with the cooler itself. I still haven't changed the front fan to a AF140 since I have a few AF120's laying around, but thinking the few extra CF might help. My GPU does heat up the side of the case quite a bit, so maybe having a larger fan would be good.

I have my case setup with positive pressure and it is working well so far. Good luck

Hey Guys, I didn't see there was a separate forum for the 250D. I did a straight build for my Wifey about three weeks ago. I have a second case to do a casually time framed Mod on ( ready lazy ) when it's done. I'll transfer all the hardware to the Modded case. I had a slight fit problem this clearance of the tubing from the H100i clearing the USB outlets some I had to move all the Holes up 1/8". pretty simple. I really love this case and it is very quite. Cheers

Thanks a lot for the feedback, I will also order those fans and go for positive pressure, if the fans get me a few db less then I will be happy.

Would anyone let me know what it was like doing this build with the RM series instead of the AX? Also regarding the RAM is 1600 fine for this? I read other people saying that you should go faster.

Thanks!

The AX line is a better quality PSU, but If you need to shave some Costs the RM series is getting good ratings for it price range. On the Ram, it really depends on what your doing with your rig. Nothing wrong with 1600. I found a deal on the corsair site for 8GB of Dominator GT 2000. unless your using an APU processor or doing photo or CAD there isn't that big of a difference in my opinion. Your mileage may vary lol
