Description

After 2 months of research and learning all i can about building PC..i finally ordered all my parts, came out to be $1,763.26. i was nervous when putting the parts together, i took my time and double check my work.. Boot up perfectly SIGH!. Everything works as it should be. I ran alot test just to make sure..I havn't overclock anything yet but soon in the near future :)...update soon

Part Reviews

CPU

Overkill for gaming! But its nice to have a i7 and its future proof for sure.

CPU Cooler

One of the best air-cooled CPU cooler period. Keeps temp low, idle at 26 degree and full load at 64 degree. Stress test at 100% is a piece of cake! Beside the ugly color its worth it. If you dont want AIO liquid cooler this is the way to go.

Motherboard

Everything runs smoothly with this motherboard. Cool design with red LED and has everything i need..Perfect for overclocking! Red and black theme

Memory

Best looking rams in my opinion. XMP no problem, top quality material..its gonna make any motherboard stand out. Im disappointed that its not 3400 out of the box..2133 stock speed not bad but still overclocked like a champ.

Video Card

Best budget GTX 1080! Got it under MSRP! This thing is beast, no game is too much for this card to handle..i upgraded from a GTX 550 ti and WOW! night and day differences ! I did alot of reseach and people are saying that temp is getting too hot, reached up to 80 c or above. i did full loads of test on the card and temp never reach 80 c..74 c is the most i seen..i think the problem is airflow..i got 4 intake and 4 exhaust fan.

Case

Best budget full tower period. Full modular case, lots of room and customization..perfect for anybuild

Power Supply

Great power delivery! so far so good

Case Fan

Great quality fan and nice LED, but cant beat Noctua fan in performance

Case Fan

Noctua on the cheap but not cheap performance..great airflow and quiet, top quality material. It is what it is Noctua good job and keep it up!
