This is my main pc, I love it. I use it mainly for gaming.
That is one weird build, tbh. what do you use it for?
I use it for everything. Whats weird about it? you cant afford it? no i don't plan on overclocking it but you never know. I spent a few extra dollars to get the k version. Yes the i5 is awesome but i just upgraded from one. as for my 760 graphics card, Im waiting for the 1080's to come back in stock so i can grab one and finish my build.
That's what I thought about the video card. If you went and brought the k version of the i7 because you wanted to overclock, you should have gotten a Z170 motherboard because you can't overclock on the one you have.
I never planned on overclocking it, But i though that all 170's could be overclocked? thats why i went with this board just in case i ever did... o well though, not a big deal to me as this thing is fast enough as is.
Thanks man, I plan on buying a Evga 1080 once they come back in stock.
he got a processor meant for overclocking with a motherboard that can't overclock, i don't think that's a very good decision. Also the video card feels outdated, op could have gotten an i5 6500(which is perfectly fine for gaming) along with a 970 or r9 380, keeping the motherboard the same. I'm assuming this was because he's migrating parts from an old rig?
I plan on upgrading to the 1080 when then come back in stock.
Do you have any issue with GPU getting up to 80-82c when playing Overwatch?
I play Rust on max settings and my gpu temps is around 78-82c. Never played overwatch. While playing diablo 3 max settings it gets up to around 55c.
I love this build.
Aspecially the combination of Noctua Fans with the GTX 1080 FE.
How are the temps of the GPU? I am thinking about getting the Nano S with a GTX 1080 FE but I am a bit worried about the exhaust being a bit blocked by the plate between the two expansion slots, but maybe that is something that one could remove.
Hey Whats up, Awesome choice on your case and gpu :). Im not sure if it would make a difference or not if that fan was removed. I like to think that it helps since it pushes air straight up into the gpu. I don't have my gpu overclocked and it runs anywhere from 75-82 on full load. for my fans i have a total of 5 in my case. 1 cpu fan and 4 others. cpu fan is connected to 1 header. and the other 4 into the other header. Its a plug that splits into 2 then i add 2 more splitters for a total of 4 plugs. The splitters came with the noctua fans i use.
Do you only have 1 FAN connector on your motherboard, since you connected them all to the same, or is there a reason for that?
I currently do:
CPU to F_CPU
2 back fans to F_FAN1
1 front fan + 1 bottom fan to F_FAN2
Not a fan of amd. I just upgraded from a i5 to this i7. Buying a 1080 when there back in stock.
