Description

Spent 6 to 7 months picking these parts, wanted a computer that could run games at ultra setting without breaking a sweat for under $1200.

Only troubles were mounting the water cooler, and loading an OS, didn't know i had update the BIOS. lol

Might throw in another video card in the future so i can run 3 monitors.

Update 2016May10: Added LED lights

All I'm saying is you could've picked a 480 gb ssd for 14-15 dollars more from the same series yours is from. Outher than that outstanding build

thank you, i felt that 240 was more than enough for my OS and steam, but i should've taken one last look at prices though

Very solid build - better than 90% of the ones on here.

You have room for a 2nd GTX 970 without any changes and room for 8gb more of ram. Good Mobo and CPU cooler.

Oh - and don't be a rubbernecker with 3 monitors - what are you thinking there? Just kiddin!

Nice build man sorta similar to what I want to build, just one thing tho how is that corsair H75 do at cooling the cpu cos I'm planing to buy a corsair h100i and I'm just looking at which one would be more better for the cpu as I might be overclocking it in the future

Hey. Love the build. I've ordered all the same parts plus an insane pcie ssd. I've never made a PC before from scratch. Any advice? I am more than capable assembling the physical parts. More just if you have any top tips on the installation. BIOS screens may aswell be a visa application or a tax return. My eyes just instantly glaze over.
Any help would help. Ty Steve

dont forget to update your BIOS before you load your OS haha, happened to me. Take your time, enjoy the feeling of build your own pc. I watched a lot of pcpartpicker build videos on youtube, and followed this http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2485250,00.asp

Also read your mobo manual.

with that MOBO i expected a better cooler like a 240mm, And those ans are no good for rads. but all in all this is a great build that will last you a long time

well since you have 2 fans on your rad you should be fine but with a proper fan you would only need one, for example the vardar, sp corsair, sp noctua fans. SP=static pressure, your kewl
