Hi there. This is my first computer build. I had been interested in PC gaming for a while, so I thought to myself, why not build a rig myself? So I did, and here it is.
I bought this right after Christmas for $1,927, and built it as soon as all the parts came in. Props to IamApropos for helping me pick out parts. He knows what he's doing!
I tried my best with the cable management, and I don't think I did too bad. It looks neat to me.
I literally just overclocked it today up to 4.2, and so far its running stable, and I think i got max temps around 66 or so. Don't really remember. Ill update the temps and speed after I overclock up to 4.5. Heres the link to my CPU Z validation. http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2645546
I use this for mostly gaming. I play a lot of The Witcher 2, Skyrim, Saints Row 3, and others, and i haven't noticed any lag or serious fps drop on max settings except in Skyrim. I have around 60gb of mods installed, mostly visual. Im going to overclock the GPU and see what improvements I see. Ill post some FPS rates for my games soon.
Otherwise, Im very happy with what Ive bought, and plan to maybe buy a better monitor and headset soon. Im also looking to name it, any suggestions?
P.S. Sorry for bad picture quality, had to use my phone.
