post #8761 of 10158

I'm a function over form type person which is a thinly veiled excuse for me hating organizing wires and focusing on details for hours on end.

Filled it pretty full with sound deadening and put low speed Gentle Typhoons on the rads, can't even tell its running from across the room haha.

The blue painter's tape is for its sleek aesthetic value.

Not only does it offer an improved aesthetic value, but the electrons can sense the blue color, which calms them and allows them to be more orderly, which stabilizes the power and ultimately improves the sound quality.  ;)

I just put a new pc together right before the holidays.

 

 

 

4770k at 4.5

Asus Maxiumus VI Hero mb

16g ram

Samsung 840 pro 256g ssd

Evga 770 GTX gpu

AX760i psu

H100i radiator

Sound Blaster ZxR

Corsair 750d case

 

 

 

 

 

Super easy build. The case was an absolute dream to work with. Extremely quiet with the psu fan only kicking on at 70%+ load. Both psu and liquid cooler running the corsair link program to balance out speeds/noise.

 

 

 

Running analog out from the ZxR to a nano patch volume controller and from there into a KrK10s sub and then to a pair of Bx5 D2's.

 

The Bx5's need upgraded... I see a pair of speaker stands in my future and something bigger sitting on them...

pc  has been running fine but I sometimes I have a problem when shutting down the computer.....the pc hangs on a code 05 on the motherboard  I then have to hold the power on button on the case for it to shut down properly  :P

otherwise its been a good pc so far :)

 

PS and I think my problem only started when I changed soundcards from a asus stx to the creative ZXR

I had issues with the first AX760i psu.

 

Random crashes. Wouldn't start up some times.

 

I RMA'ed it and the new one works flawlessly.

I've had good luck with the seasonic psu before this one , its my 1st corsair psu ..... I read a lot of good reviews about  this psu that's why I got mine :) I don't use the software for the monitoring and stuff tho

its nice and quiet , I also have them bequiet fans everywhere and the pc is dead silent :)

 

 I also changed  the op amps on the Zxr 's output side  from the LME49710NA too the  LME49710HA + Adaptor version 2 days ago and think it sounds a bit better.... I also tried changing the JRC NJM2114D  to the

 
 
LME49720HA   like the reviews say guru3d website but I didn't like  sound much as the stock
you can get them from ebay

Yes it is.

 

I wish I had a knack for cable management in my PCs as well as my audio setups, even when I try, it fails lol. If I did maybe the woman would let me keep some stuff on display rather than tucked away down stairs or in cabinets.

Cable management only takes a few minutes of thinking and preparation, maybe sometimes you'll realise you need a different length cable or you'll need to move something completely to a diffreny place but it's not that hard really! smily_headphones1.gif

Your probably right, my problem is probably more to do with impatience and laziness. Also Im a cheap bastard, if i have a cable that's doing its job, but is the wrong length i typically will not cut it or purchase a new one, ill just cram it in there LOL.

I really need to step up to a full tower case.  I've had my Antec 900 case for over 6 years now, and it has served me well over several semi-annual upgrades.  Stuff is just so cramped inside my case now, that cable management is like trying to fit Bob Marley's long dreadlocks between the platters of a George Foreman grill.  Trying to make it look neat and organized is just impossible.  Even a modular power supply did not help much.  A case will be my next upgrade, or it will be included with whatever else I get for my next upgrade.

I've learned that having a quality case that allows for cable management is key. Lots of tie-downs and the right kind of cables are necessary, custom cables are the best but it can get pricey unless you do it yourself.
