    Default Black and Red - For a Co-Worker

    All,

    Starting a new build for a co-worker.

    Duties: Light Gaming (World of Tanks, some Car Racing Sims), web surfing. Probably some racing software (for tuning his race cars).

    Pre-existing Hardware: Dual Monitors (maybe, they need evaluation, but he'd like to keep them).

    Budget: Well. Not really an issue.

    Cooling: Because he's not (initially) going to overclock, I think we're going to start with the stock cooler, and then (perhaps) go with a AIO. Mostly because I'm pretty sure he wouldn't be interested in maintaining a custom loop.

    Flashiness: Not really interested in LED's, but I'm pretty sure that's not really a concern!

    Inspiration: Well, I'd be lying if I said CyberBurnouts AMD Build for the Holiday Contest wasn't a factor. After reading some reviews and gazing at photos, I decided the same Core V51 Case was for us. That is the only piece of hardware purchased so far.

    So. Below is a link to the Hardware list on PC PartPicker

    Intel Core i7-4790K, MSI GeForce GTX 970, Thermaltake Core V51 - System Build - PCPartPicker

    Feedback welcome.

    Things I'm not 100% on:

    Fans (until I get the case in my hands, this is a unknown) 120 or 140?

    PSU: I'm a Seasonic Fan, but I like the looks of the Corsair, and it looks suspiciously like my Seasonic...it's probably overkill, so I may reduce the capacity.

    Motherboard, I the Gaming 7 because it was between the 5 and the 9. No really. OK, so I really like my Z87 MPower, but the Gaming has a nice aesthetic, and I can't really find any reason not to get a 7 over a 5, but I could be persuaded to get a 9...perhaps. I need to do some more reading on the differences between these models. Feedback really welcome on this part. Not keen on ASROCK, and I'm sorta ambivalent about Gigabyte, so it's really ASUS or MSI.

    Although I'm not watercooling, I'll probably get some custom sleeved PSU cables, I usually use ModDIY for that, but I'm willing to listen to other suggestions. I also may look into a backplate for the Video card.

    Ignore the Keyboard and Mouse, he'll probably pick his own, I just threw those in there to complete the Theme.

    Looks good.

    That PSU looks like a Seasonic because....well...it is as Seasonic. They make it for Corsair, who in turn marks it up for sailboat tax.

    Yeah, I did some digging, and that would appear to be the case for sure. Good, I like them! LOL

    Sweet! Something I did made someone else go buy stuff and build stuff!!


    Honestly it looks like you have everything pretty much nailed down.......... minus the idea of going with a stock cooler. Why even do that to yourself and his build? Just mean spirited. Seriously not only are stock coolers useless, they are freaking ugly. You are looking to spend around $2357.85 but cool the CPU with something that is used to prop up landfills? Even the cheapest AIO will work better and look better. Of course I would never suggest you buy the cheapest thing around because it is that cheap for a reason. Like it doesn't work very well or at all. You also have some killer Air coolers that would look pretty good in this project. George will be more than happy to list off his top picks for air cooling and the best fan combos to run.

    As for fans Thermaltake just posted these the other day. Riing 12 High Static and Riing 14 High Static. Also like the CM Jetflo, Phanteks and for looks the DeepCool UF120R/UF140R

    Well. To be honest, as long as I've not been overclocking, I've never had a problem with Stock Coolers / Performance /Noise, at least not since Intel introduced the Core series of processors. As for ugly, well yeah. BUT, I'm not overly pleased by the aesthetic of a lot of the Air Coolers period. Frankly the idea of sticking a huge monster cube of Metal and fan on my CPU has never really appealed. I'll look into the various options, but so far I've not seen anything that really grabs me and works. I do like the Swiftech AIO's, and that might be an option.

    On another note those Thermaltakes are sweet. Like the red ring. Very nice.

    I cant remember the last time I removed a stock cooler from the box. lol If they work for you then more power to ya! Some of the AIOs are pretty butt ugly too. Maybe the DeepCool Captain 240 for this project. Different and red.

    I want some of the Riing fans. The green ones are calling me!

    The 850W EVGA built in the same Seasonic platform is currently on sale for $149 plus a $20 MIR. Much nicer cables and better customer service - https://www.evga.com/Products/Produc...220-GS-0850-V1

    As both you and Cyber sang it's praises, I had a look, and it would look great in this build. I'll talk to the buyer and see if I can convince him!

    I truly don't need 850W though. Having said that, what's the difference between the G1/G2 & GS lines? I'll do some digging, but I can get a 750G2 for $104 without any rebates....

    Stick to the G2 series, I have both G1 and G2 and the G2 is a far superior PSU unit.
    I also have the P2 unit in the 1000watt and its a beast!

    The EVGA G2 750watt is the same unit I used in my InWin Mini D Frame Build.

    You can read some reviews before you decide, here are some:
    Deepcool Captain 360 Review - Cooling > Watercooling - Reviews - ocaholic
    Deepcool Gamer Storm Captain 360 Review | techPowerUp
    DeepCool GamerStorm Captain 240 All-in-One Liquid CPU Cooler | Modders-Inc, Case Mods and Computer Hardware Reviews
    the general conclusion: itīs not the best AIO cooler on the market, but it is in the top 5.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    As Kenny pointed out....forget the G1 line.

    The G2/P2 line is Superflower Leadex, the GS line is Seasonic. Personally, I (and JG and every other reviewer who has disassembled) think the Leadex is a slightly better platform, but I know you are partial to Seasonic. I pointed out the 850W simply because it is less money for more wattage in the same platform as the Corsair you were looking at, and since looks matter the cables are far nicer on the EVGA.

    I would go with the 750 G2 at that price. Better PSU, better cables, less money than the AX760.

    I can't think of another mfg available in the US. I guess being better than one of the others counts for something.

    On a stock 4790K they are all basically interchangeable as far as performance, anyway. At least the DeepCool has fitted the Captain with quiet fans, which is a huge plus. It also holds the distinction of being the only one of these coolers likely to say "aye, matey".

    I can certainly live with SuperFlower. I like the sleeved cables a hell of a lot better than the flat things that Seasonic ships on the Platinums for sure...On top of that, both you and Kenny recommend it, so...750G2 it is.

    Thanks!
