A lot of time and effort at work has finally led me to my first custom computer, it does everything i want. Its quiet, powerful and looks awesome, even matches my 2015 blackwidow ultimate and 2012 naga.
Processor - Intel Core i7 6700K,
I went with this processor simply because it is the best CPU for gaming right now. I understand that since this is mostly a gaming rig why go with the i7, the answer is simple, i wanted a CPU that would last me a long time and give me some growing room if i wanted to get into video editing or live streaming, plus i might go SLI in the future so why not!
Cpu cooler - NZXT Kraken x61
Another simple choice if you want a quiet and powerful CPU cooler, keeps my 6700k running quiet and cool, even at 4.4gz
Motherboard - MSI Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon
The motherboard was a really hard choice since i wanted an all black motherboard, i would have gone with the EVGA FTW motherboard if only it had usb 2.0 and a better QC, so this is what a decided on
Memory - Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 - 2666
Can't go wrong with good'ol corsair memory!
Storage - A-Data Premier SP550 240GB SSD and HGST Deskstar Nas 3tb HDD
Storage was pretty east to decide on ever sense i started watching Tek Syndicate and just seeing how amazing HGST,s drives are, i had to go with them. The SSD on the other hand was just the cheepest 240gb SSD with a decent brand label on it
Video Card - Asus GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Founders Edition.
I knew when i saw this GPU for the first time at Nvidia's unveiling of the new 10 series, that this would be the card for this build. When i saw that it even beat a 980ti for about 50 dollars less on amazon, i went for it. So far i love this card, i finished my PC a few hours before posting this so i have just started running benchmarks and i love how cool this card is and its quite, quiet. Can't wait to start gaming on this beast!
Case - Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX Mid Tower
I saw this case in a few videos and i love it, i wish the tempered glass edition was available when i bought the case, but its all good. Its sturdy and made of full aluminum , i love the options for radiators in the future and how many dust filters it has. In my opinion if you have the budget and you are looking for a nice mid tower case get this one, simply outstanding.
Power Supply - Corsair RMx 850W 80+ Gold certified
Got it on sale for only 99.99$, fully modular and pretty quiet actually plus i figured it would be enough power for a sli setup in the future.
Final opinions - The last thing i didn't cover was the fans, i saw them in a linustech video and plus they are the only good looking and relatively quiet fan i have seen on the market (that are green mind you).
So yeah this is my first build and im very pleased with it. I hope to get a 1440p monitor sometime soon and maybe another 1070 in a few months after the game drivers catch up with the new series
