Description

I built this pc mainly because I was still using an Asus gaming laptop from 4 years ago, and it was starting to overheat, and have problems. Everything went well, and it can run Fortnite at 3440x1440 144 fps on pro settings. I am thinking about upgrading the Gpu to a used 1080 ti in the future, but sadly now I have maxed out my budget.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great performance, especially when its overclocked

CPU Cooler

Overall good cooler, my only complaint is that it is a bit noisy under load.

Motherboard

Overall good motherboard, has some great overclocking ability!

Memory

Good ram, plenty fast enough for me

Storage

Fast boot times, and loading games is even faster!

Video Card

Good gpu, the stock fan curve could use some tweaking though.

Case

Good case for the money, just wish that the included fan wasn't molex

Power Supply

Great psu, quiet, and I haven't had any issues.

Probably used, as he said in his description, "used 1080 ti"

Is a 4770k still a desirable CPU?

Yes, with most games the bottleneck is still the gpu, although I have the Cpu OCed to 4.4 ghz

eBay. Bought it as a combo with the motherboard for 179.99

Thinking about buying these exact parts to upgrade from my sleeper with a GT 1030 lmao. Is this machine running well for you? Do you have some benchmarks? I've never ran liquid cooling before, do you know of any good tutorials similar to this build?

It is running well. it runs Modern Warfare (2019) 3440x1440 at 60 fps. The cooler runs well, but has a high pitch whine when the cooler is running at full speed, but I have fixed this by running it at a constant, lower speed. The cpu gets a score of 1980 in cinebench R20, although I have it overclocked to 4.5ghz. As for tutorials on watercooling, I would recommend searching the cooler that you choose on youtube because there is usually a pretty in depth installation video.
