My build for Pro Tools & Premiere & After Effects, and gaming of course.
- Xigmatech Aquila, Black (Silenced)
- i7 4770k @ 4.8GHZ
- Asus Maximus VII z97 Gene
- Corsair H100i
- MSI R9 280x
- 16gb Hyperx Fury @ 2133Mhz (2x8)
- 60GB Kingston SSD

Around 28 Celsius on idle, gets up to around 42 in games, 43-ish whilst rendering.
holy shit 4.8ghz 43C for real? i got 4.7ghz 77C (22C ambient) with a noctua nh-d14.
Wow, that Xigmatek case looks like a baby Bitfenix Ronin.
Don't be just yet, I made the mistake of using windows 8. Going back to 7. But thank you!
Windows 7 + SSD will always be better than Windows 8. Windows 8 is just terrible.
Yeah the case is kinda out of my way and I also got the foam for silencing and it runs about 84% fan speed under full load and that keeps everything nice and cool.
Just purchase "startisback"
I quite liked 8.1 but I've had so many problems with games and nexus mod manager and so many little bugs, the interface is to my taste but I can't deal with the bugs and such.
The interface isn't my problem, it's just there's so many things that need to be fixed with a lot of games and Pro Tools isn't quite there yet for windows 8.
