Welcome to my first PC build.
So first of all, let's say my budget was $2000 with everything included.
I'm really proud of myself that I can say that I built my first PC without anyone helping me except the internet. Talking about the build. When I started building the PC everything went pretty smooth and everything was fine. But then when I finished building everything and checked if all the cables were connected to the right things I pressed the power button when the PC didn't turn on. I was mad at that moment I remember, I raged, I was like, I probably screwed up something or I broke a component. Then after like 2 hours after checking the front panel connector I saw that the motherboard 24 pin power cable wasn't fully plugged in so I did that, pushed a little further and my PC turned on. So I was glad. Then when I connected my PC to my beast monitor, my monitor didn't detect the Display Port. So I just plugged the PC into the TV and set up everything I could. I was about to return the monitor to the store because it didn't detect the Display Port but after all of that I saw a click thing on the Display Port Cable so I don't exactly remember what I did but when I tried to plug in the Display Port Cable for the second time it clicked it, I definitely heard a sound. I don't know if all Display Port Cables have that, because this is my first PC and never used a Display Port Cable. But after all of that everything working great. The monitor had some little black light bleeding but I couldn't do much about it and I don't think its that big of a deal. So yeah that was my journey for building my PC for the first time.
Talking about the parts:
Intel Core i5-8600K Good CPU. Still thinking about it to overclock to 5 GHz but still don't know. Someone told me to go with coffee lake since it didn't affect that much of my budget. Didn't go for the i7-8700K because I don't do that much of productivity (almost never). But maybe I should've gotten the i7 because I have the GTX 1080 Ti. I don't know, what do you guys think.
Corsair - H115i This is by far the best choice I ever had. Temps are really good and low. I know that if I'm just browsing on the internet or doing something else other than gaming it's lower than 28 degrees at quiet mode. So I think that's pretty good.
Asus - ROG STRIX Z370-E GAMING Got it because of the nice RGB, and its good looking of course. Maximus X Hero was too expensive.
G.Skill - Trident Z RGB RAM is RAM, pretty RAM is also pretty :)
Corsair - MP500 120GB I only use it for the OS. And it's pretty fast I've to say. It only gets a little hot though, I don't know if that's normal. Gets up to 75 degrees.
WD Black Series 1TB Really good and fast HDD. People are complaining about the noise but I can't even hear it to be honest with you. Use it for everything but OS.
Asus - Geforce GTX 1080 Ti STRIX This is one of my toughest decisions I ever had. But it's definitely worth the money. Playing all games on 60+ frames on 1440p everything maxed out. And it's not even in the range of 60 frames I play Destiny 2 on about 110 frames with everything maxed out and 1440p.
Corsair - 750D Airflow Edition I don't even know why I got this case, I think just because it was big and looked nice.
EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 750W I probably regret this one because I should've gotten the Corsair one since I have a Corsair case but it's all fine. It's really quiet. Can barely hear it.
Asus - PG279Q This monitor is dope. 1440p resolution and 144hz. Only downside is that I probably will never get 60hz because I'm used to 144hz now.
P.S. I didn't do stress testing yet. Don't know when but we'll see.
Well guys there you have it hope you guys like the build and feedback would always be appreciated.
