Description

My first PC ever, (yay) went with the all white GTX 1070, white CPU cooler, white MB,GPU,and CPU cables and to top it off a white nzxt s340 elite. I have no complaints what so ever. Focusing on the case, it has 3 2.5 mounts in the front and a good cable management system in the back, those are the best features imo, any feedback would be nice 8)

Part Reviews

CPU

Good enough for the top gpu's and games, no complaints.

CPU Cooler

One of the only all white CPU fans out there, comes with 2 fans for extra cooling. No complaints.

Motherboard

Just like any other MB but it is white, thats why I bought it. You can honestly buy a cheaper one that performs better. Beware that you cannot overclock with this motherboard.

Memory

Works like any other RAM stick out there, its pretty unique because its all white and I would recommend to opt for the 2x8 verison instead the 4x4 for future upgrades; only reason why I bought the 4x4 version was for aesthetic purposes.

Storage

You could get cheaper and faster SSD's than this Plextor, but it functions similarly to other top SSD's out there, try opting for a Samsung. Only reason why I bought this was because it was silver.

Storage

Works like any other 7200RPM HDD out there, no complaints.

Video Card

Its unique because its all white and it fits my build, it functions just like any other 1070. Be careful if you want to run on high-ultra on the newest games with a 144hz monitor, you might not get the frames you are looking for. If you want just 60fps at all times, on ultra settings this card is for you. Make sure you qualify your needs and if you need to get a 1080.

Case

Beautiful case (bought the white one). Its price point is amazing for what it is, it has a full glass panel and a very nice cable management system in the back.

Power Supply

Works just like any other 80+ gold PSU out there, no complaints.

I believe you have the wrong case in your parts list

its the same exact case but in a different color, couldn't find the white verison in this site.

Good build and white makes things so clean. As far as feedback maybe straighten out those pci wires and get some combs. When you make a sanitary build unfortunately small things stand out. How does that Asus 1070 perform? Was looking at a couple of those for my Sister's upcoming build.

It works just like any other 1070 imo. was getting 70-100 fps on bf1 ultra on a 144hz monitor, running overwatch on all ultra at 120fps+ of course; nothing special about it other than that its white. I also heard about EVGA cards are not reliable right now so you should stay away from those.

Yeah I watched the videos and fixes. Oh well. They will pull out of it. Thanks for the advise.

EVGA cards are great, I have a 1070 SC in my build, its quiet and overclocks fairly well.

What cable comb did you buy for your build? It looks nice and I might buy some.

Clean build. I would suggest a colour coded backplate to finish off the GPU: http://www.coldzero.eu/asus-gtx-1070-dual/2779-asus-gtx-1070-dual-layout-1-white-1.html or http://www.coldzero.eu/asus-gtx-1070-dual/2778-asus-gtx-1070-dual-layout-1-white-1.html Plus if you don't plan on filling the two spare SSD slots, I'd suggest removing the brackets

Does the i5 6500 bottleneck the 1070?
