More about made build wondering check compatibility hardware
  1. That board does not support 2133 memory, change the memory to 1600 to go cheaper or change the mobo to pay more.

    BTW what do you plan to do with it? i5-4590 is good enough for gaming with that card too, ofcourse you can get the other one still if you want, but gaming won't notice much.
  2. What will you be doing on that build, gaming?

    This comes with a better GPU, and it's cheaper. If it's for gaming, this would benefit you more as I only slightly downgraded the processor. And the RAM is cheaper, so even if it will run at 1600Mhz, it doesn't matter.

    This is exactly correct, however still needs to fix a little the ram.

    Yes it will be used for gaming
  9. Then have a look at my build, it should be better for gaming.

    Using 1600mhz ram which is COMPATIBLE with that board, the last one wasn't.
    Also this build has the better GPU/CPU combination you used, the PSU you used was good too so I included it, and changed the HDD for an older Caviar Black which I personally trust more but the OP can choose to go back to seagate.

  12. Ok thanks guys you saved me some serious hassle. I will take all your advice into consideration!
  13. Rubn_Alq, the motherboard does support 2133Mhz Ram, it just can't make it run at those speeds... And Blackbird's solution is better, if you can go higher than $1000.
  14. Can I not use the stock CPU fan or do you think I should buy a better one?
  15. The CPU in SR-1 Blackbird's build is overclockable, so if you ever need to overclock you will have that option, and the cooler is quieter, and will make your CPU run cooler.
  16. Ok, i got ya. Thanks for the help!
  17. What's the point in paying more for a ram when you can pay less for the same speed? that's why I said the ram was only a "little problem" and not a big one ;) of course the final decition is allways the OP one.

    The RAM I listed is cheaper than the one you listed in your build. ^^
  19. So i put the RAM and motherboard blackbird suggested on gooeyGUI and it says "Motherboard does not support RAM 240 DDR3 2133".
  20. Yes it does , you set the XMP profile in the BIOS.

    The Asrock Z97 Pro 4 supports:
    Memory Standard
    DDR3 3100+(OC)/2933+(OC)/ 2800(OC)/2400(OC)/2133(OC)/1866(OC)/1600/1333/1066
  21. Ok just making sure
  22. Are you sure you didn't mix it up with what I posted with the h97 pro 4?
  23. Ok here it is updated.
    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/7CWH7P
    Compatible now?
  24. Ok, so yeah if you don't want to overclock, this works. And I don't have any info about this power supply (can't find any info or reviews), so I would recommend going with something else. The XFX I recommended earlier is non-modular, but it's better.
  25. Ok i just saw on pcpartpicker it said it was unable to verify if the graphics card will fit in this case. Do you think that will be a problem?
