    Very nice cable management and the overall build looks very clean! Good job, mate!

    There is massive RAM clearance issues, as my Kingston Beasts have quiet tall heat spreaders, I couldn't mount any of my RAM. Then I decided to take all the fans off and set them up so the fan in the middle pulls the air in from the right and the fan on the left of the cooler pushes it out the case along with the Corsair fan at the back of the case. Don't know if my cooling set up makes sense but it's the only way I could install RAM.

    Yea I'm really pleased with the Powercolor card even though it's huge . 
    The SSD is alright for me but yea I heard some bad stuff about it. It boots up my computer fast enough and just using the computer is miles faster than a regular HDD. But yea an upgrade is due for the SSD.
    Microphone is Samson C01U. It's around 50 quid and it's good quality for teamspeak and that kind of stuff.

    itsMacyyyy got a reaction from Castdeath97 in My first Build Log :) (i5|R9 290 Gaming PC)   
    Hey guys, I have finally managed to build a PC that I'm happy with. For the past few years I've been running my components in an old case from my first prebuilt pc, and they were suffocating due to lack of proper cooling. So after saving up a bit and using some of my 18th birthday money I decided to put together a proper system with proper cooling. So firstly the parts are:
     
    CPU - Intel Core i5 4690k
     
    I always wanted to overclock my CPU therefore I went with an unlocked i5. It has all the performance I need for a decent price. I wanted a 4790k but decided I don't really need it so in the end I went with the i5
     
    Motherboard - ASUS Maximus VII Ranger
     
    The only explanation I really have for choosing this motherboard over other billion Z97 ones out there is since I was like 12 I always wanted an ROG motherboard with high end features like a diagnostic LED and Start button. I don't really need some of those features but my 12 year old self called out to me and told me to get it. It also has all the features I need. 
     
    CPU Cooler - be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3
     
    It's extremely quiet, looks sexy and fits so why not. I was originally going to get a Corsair H110i GTX but after looking at other peoples builds i realied I really don't like the look of the tubing that comes with AIO watercoolers, it kinda just awkwardly bends over your RAM or just looks like it doesn't belong there. So for now I went with be quiet! until I save up enough for custom watercooling, which again I don't need but I would want to try it. 
     
    GPU - Powercolor R9 290 PCS+
     
    Got an open boxed deal on it from overclockers.co.uk few months ago for £180 so I had to get it. It's performance is more than sufficient for me for now and I will probably think about getting the GTX 980Ti when I upgrade to a higher resolution.
     
    Case - Fractal Design Define R5
     
    I like the simplistic look of this case and I've heard good opinions about it. I've also built a system for a friend in the R4 and found it easy to build in so I went with the windowed R5.
     
    PSU - Corsair RM550
     
    I took it from my previous system. I like the zero fan mode and the wattage is sufficient for me. If I need a higher wattage PSU I will probably still stick with the RM series. 
     
    Storage - Kingston SSDnow 300 128GB, 2TB Seagate Barracuda, 1TB WD Green
     
    The SSD is from my previous system and I got it on a sale somewhere for 30 quid. I'm happy with it for now but I probably will try to go with an M.2 SSD when I can afford one. 
     
    1TB Barracuda is a 6 year old drive from my prebuilt system. It's still spinning so I keep my movies on it. 
     
    I bought a new Barracuda for this system to keep my games and other files on it as my WD Green was full as well as it's ridiculously slow...
     
    LEDS - NZXT White Sleeved LED Kit 2M
     
    When I get paid this time I'm planning to go with a CableMod kit of sleeved Red/Black cables to replace this PSU's stiff and horrible cables.
     
    PERIPHERALS
     
    Mouse - Razer Deathadder Chroma
     
    Keyboard - Corsair K70 RGB (Cherry MX Brown)
     
    Bday present from my girlfriend. Prefer the Blue switches from my previous BlackWidow but overall I like the build quality of the K70, as well as the RBG backlight
     
    Headphones - audio-technica M50x, Sennheiser IE80 for gaming and outdoor use as I find M50x's are not bassy enough for some games. 
     
    Microphone - Samson C01U

    Sandybridge-E came out around the same time as Ivybridge and Ivybridge shortly after Haswell which might be the reason for their number schemes. Also there has benn 
    Yes x79 is the newest extreme edition chipset with x99 coming soon and yes it will support your Sandybridge-E (if thats what you mean) CPU. There were 9xx extreme editions, not sure about 2xxxx but most probably.
     
    EDIT: There were two mobile extreme editions in 2xxx series. The numbering scheme is different for extreme editions as there has been one more generation than consumer grade CPU's.

    itsMacyyyy reacted to firstdragon in Create Desktop Shortcut for Google Docs Documents   
    How to Quickly Create New Google Documents with a Shortcut or Hotkey


    Start by clicking anywhere on the desktop, and choosing New -> Shortcut from the context menu.


    Now you’ll want to paste in the full URL for creating a new document in Google Docs, Spreadsheets, or Presentations into the Location box, and then give it an appropriate name. If you’re using standard Google Docs, you’ll be using one of the following URLs:

       
    http://docs.google.com/?action=newdoc    http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?new    http://docs.google.com/?action=new_presentation    https://docs.google.com/drawings/create?hl=en If you’re using Google Apps, you’ll want to use one of these URLs, replacing YOURDOMAIN with the actual name of your domain—you’ll probably notice that these URLs have HTTPS, which you can choose to use, or not.
     
        https://docs.google.com/a/YOURDOMAIN.com/?action=newdoc    https://spreadsheets.google.com/a/YOURDOMAIN.com/ccc?new    https://docs.google.com/a/YOURDOMAIN.com/?action=new_presentation    https://docs.google.com/a/YOURDOMAIN.com/drawings/create?hl=en Make sure that you’ve created the shortcuts that you want, and named them correctly, so we can add some nice icons.
    Assign an Appropriate Icon and a Hotkey

    To change the shortcut, just right-click on it and use Properties from the context menu, then flip over to the Web Document tab if you’re not already there. From here, you can customize the shortcut key to something that you’d like, and assign a different icon.


    If you want some good icons that match, you can download this set of Google Docs icons from Softpedia, which will make your resulting shortcuts look like this:


    It’s important to note that if you want the shortcut keys to work for these shortcuts, you’ll need to either have the shortcut on your desktop or in the Start Menu—the hotkeys just don’t work elsewhere.

    It's still worth the upgrade like ShadowCaptain said. And in some cases an article said that in real world scenarios you won't notice a huge difference between Sata 3 & 6 SSD speeds.
    Either way it will still boot and perform much faster than your run-of-the-mill HDD.
