Completed Build: BitFenix i7 4770k Custom Build (Green Machine#2)

This is a custom build for a client. He will be using this for mainly video/photo editing ....Hint the X2 512 SSD in RAID. and the 16 GB of ram. I also did a little custom paint on the corsair 120MM fan. I used Valspar High Gloss spray paint. Made specially for plastics.. This is my 4th ITX build and they seem very popular... Everyone should have one imo.... The screen is Acer T232HL 23-Inch Touch Screen LCD Display
i know there is allot of haters out there because of the touch screen but to be honest once you use it for a while its actually really nice on convenient... its FAST when your navigating between windows... and most of all it looks really nice on a clean space.
also please check out my other builds! :)

    says right in the description :) Client is using it for video editing . when rendering you want a raid configuration with X2 ssds. the 512 pros have a high iops and the bigger the drive more likely the better performance.

    2x 256G 840 pro in Raid 0 will give you the same speed of 2x512 ... the same result.

    put the 200$ difference in the Graphics , get GTX 780

    You must not know what raid 0 is.... or what it's for then.
  5. I thought Raid 0 is two hard-drives being written on at the same time, spreading the data between the two, effectively doubling the rate at which you read/write data. How would the size of the hard-drive matter?

    Bigger ssds tend to have high iops . Just do a little research and you will see!:)

    the Samsung 840 pro 256 and 512 are identical in performance

    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/665?vs=743

    not all SSD are the same , it is not a general rule.

    GET THE GTX 680 !!! your case cant add SLI !!! and you are wasting 200$ for nothing.

    and I have a better idea ... the Z87 support 6 Sata 3 in raid 0 ,

    instead of 2x512 840pro , buy 3x256 840 pro and make 3x Raid 0 !!!! you will have 1500MB/s read write !!!

    and get BlueRay Writer it is only $60

    You will not get 1500mbps from x3 raid lol that not how it works exactly. Also a 680 compared to a 770 are neck and neck plus the 770 runs gpu boost 2.0 also its more quiet and oc better... I personally have both cards and run benchmarks all the time the 770 preforms a little better regardless. Also in the description this says its for a client.

    it will give you around 1350 , TRY IT. and you seem like a beginner ... TRY IT even in notebook 3x raid 0 is giving 1300 ... as for you saying 770 is better , well I have nothing to say.
