I was getting into looking at computer parts recently after my friend told me about this incredible website (pcpartpicker).
I wanted to just take my time and wait for some good deals to come along, but I neeeeded a new build for Witcher3 coming up...
Within a few days I saw sales that were around 20-30% on great CPUs and GPUs so I took them and the rest of the pieces fell in place. I messed up the memory compatibility and had to buy another set (the Corsairs), but other than that I had little difficulty.
I decided to add the liquid cooling to keep noise down as well as open up my overclocking capabilities. Should go for it in the next month or so maybe.
I know my cable management is **** and it's not the most researched build. I also haven't bought any benchmarking software so I don't have a lot of details either. However, I had a blast putting it together, and I always like a fun project. I'm also very very pleased with the results.
Hope some of you guys like it!
