Another Rate My Build :)


Dec 15, 2013
Hey everyone, just wanted a second opinion on this system I'm planning to build. Mainly for gaming and definitely OC. Parts include:

Motherboard: ASUS Z87 Pro
CPU: Intel i5 4670k
Cooler: CoolMaster Hyper 212 EVO
GPU: EVGA Superclocked GTX 770 2GB
Memory: Corsair LP 16GB (2x8GB) (1866)
Power: Corsair RM650
Storage: 120 GB Samsung SSD (For boot and programs) and a 1TB WD HDD
Optical: Standard ASUS DVD Burner
Case: NZXT Phantom 410 (Black)
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Just let me know what you think! Thanks!

Nothing wrong with it. I'd change some things up on it though. I wouldn't set your mind on the Psu until you buy though, since, depending on sales, you'll most likely end up getting a different model. SeaSonic, Corsair(non Cx(M), or GS), Xfx, Antec, Ocz are all solid buys.

Why are you buying 16gb's of Ram? If this is primarily a gaming Pc, save the money since 8gb's is more than enough right now. If you decide to drop down to 8gb's, then I'd reinvest it back into a better Cpu cooler.

You can usually find a better priced 770 that will perform the same than the eVga 770 w/ACX cooler.

Is the SSD a Samsung 840 Evo? It should be, if not.
