Description

( My english is not perfect so if i wrote mistakes sorry for that) So my gaming computer, some parts are new, some are coming from my old build, i use it only for internet and gaming , its not the newest system but for gaming its doing ok, few weeks ago i did change the color from red/black to blue black ( look to the last picture where you can see i had still had my old desk and the red/black colors) The motherboard, cpu and memory came from my old build wich was around 2 years old,
For me was not worth it spending the money again to upgrade to a new motherboard/cpu/memory for maybe a 10 % faster chip (again i use it only for gaming/internet)

Monitor: LG monitor (2560x1080) LG34UM68, not the best monitor/specs, but for my budget and since i have a gtx 1070 this was my choise

CPU: i have a i7-4790k it have a light oc, to 4.4 ghz on 1.15 volt ( temp is max 58° after 2 hours of gaming)i did not try higher clock speeds.

Motherboard: Asus z97 gaming pro , since i changed my color from red/black to blue/black , i did paint the small red parts on the heatsinks black , its a simpel but very good motherboard.

Ram: Corsair Vengance 16gb DDR3 1600 mhz, i have 2 black and 2 blue dimms , each 4 gb, what can i say more ,its memory :-)

Harddrives: Samsung 840 with 250gb for my windows ( yep still using win 7 ) and a 2TB western digital (green) for my games/movies/ect ect , ( wich i will replace by the summer for a 2 tb ssd ) games wich i play the most are installed on my ssd

Videocard; EVGA gtx 1070 SC , i bought it 2 months ago, ( i had before a evga gtx 970 scc) just 2 weeks after i bought it they released the updated version with the new cooler /backplate, since there where problems with these cards running hot...... I bought the version with updated bios and thermal pads , max temp i have is around 65/66° so i think thats ok

Case; NZXT S340 elite black, i painted the cable management bar blue, ( before it was painted in red) i did order some custom cables , atx cable, pcie cable and 8 pin motherboard cable are in white,blue and black simple case wich is easy to build in, and the glass window is very nice

PSU: Corsair RMx550, enough for what i need, its quiet, and fully modular........so what you need more ;-)

Cooling; Nzxt kraken X62 for the cpu, its lovely, runs quiet and looks great ( my opinion) the cam software is doing ok for me, even i hear many people are not happy with it, for the case i use a thermal take ring fan with blue led

Keyboard: Corsair K70 Rapidfire, looks great, not the cheapest but its looking nice ( rgb colors)

Mice: Razer mamba tournament edition, this im not so happy with, its working fine, but the rubber coating did start to go after 2-3 weeks of use, i contacted razer, they told me to bring it back to the store, there they told me this is normal......contacted razer again, again to store, again they told me signs from using are not warenty.......so for me no razer mice anymore, i dont know if other people have this problem......i like the looks and how its working ,but for a 100 euro mice i tought this will not happen....

Sound : A simple Trust Tytan 2.1 speakers System ,cheap ,around 65 euro,its all plastic,looks bit cheap, but the bass can kick really hard, i know they are better systems, but for the price its good enough

For the Future: Replace my 2 TB mechanical HD for a 2TB SSD, Maybe i will change the speakers for a logitech Z623 set, but first i want to hear them in real before i buy A extended Mouse Pad( wich i did order today, its from pecham, again budget friendly, and exact the size i wanted ( 80 cm on 30 cm), it should arrive tomorrow or the day after )

Budget i spent around +- 1850 euro, i also use a gaming chair, DX racer with black and blue colors , and last weekend i bought the Ikea desk,its a karlby kichten counter top, wich i did cut in the size i needed, with 4 ADLIS legs under, simpel and clean, i did install a rgb led strip on the back of the counter top

In total i did spend around 2300 euro for my complete gaming setup,computer, monitor, desk,chair,.......everything.

Man don't you know that if you make your pc red and black and call it "The Beast" you get 50% extra gaming performance?

Awesome build!! You no put GPU in faster x16 slot?

  • 28 months ago
  • 2 points

hello, thank you, about using the second pcie slot, i did run some tests, (games) and i got a 1 to max 2 frames difference, so thats ok for me, i did it because the tubes from the nzxt are pretty long and they stay on the gpu when you put the gpu in the first slot, for me personal its looking better in the second pcie slot :-)

This is the definition of a perfectly executed build. Great parts list, incredible cable management, beautiful and consistent color scheme, great photos, excellent cat.

Just fantastic.

+1 for Feline enhanced cooling in picture 6.

Thanks for the nice words :-) the cables where a small nightmare to get in, its a pretty small case and the space under the psu cover is not that big since there is a harddrive cage wich takes half of the space, to bad nzxt did not make the hd cage removable, since i want to upgrade in the future to a second ssd, would be nice if you could remove the hd cage to create some space for the cables, i use extension cables so its pretty full in the back, but after some pushing and some painfull fingers i got everything in place :-)

Such a nice build with brilliant pictures and a clean setup. I'm not entirely sure about the balance of white but that's just nit picking .

Yes! Finally. Someone else does black and blue. This build is so clean I think even my mom would approve. If I may ask, why put your GPU in the 2nd slot? It decreases performance.

  • 28 months ago
  • 1 point

hello

thank you ! about performance, in 90% of the games i have the same fps, in few games i have 1 to 2 fps less so its a very small performance lost, i did run some test before i decide to move the gpu down, so after all its ok for me, 1 or 2 frames are not visible i think ;-)

Deze kabels zien er echt mooi uit. Ik heb zitten kijken naar cablemod kabels maar heel vaak zie ik dat ze er te los uitzien, hier lijkt het wel of elke kabel mooi samengepakt zit als één geheel zonder ruimte er tussen. (Als je weet wat ik bedoel, best moeilijk uit te leggen).

Ik had nog wel een vraagje, de stata power kabel voor die Samsung SSD, heb je deze ook vervangen? De mijne ziet er erg bulky uit en steekt een beetje omhoog zo net waar ze onder de psu shroud naar boven komen.

hallo

eerst en vooral sorry voor de zeer late reply, is lang geleden dat ik nog ingelogd heb,

de kabels heb ik op ebay gekocht, ik weet niet of deze verkoper nog actief is, hij maakt de kabels zoals je vraagt, kleuren,lengte, materiaal, ect ect prijs viel goed mee, zijn wel vrij stijve kabels maar zijn zeer degelijk, ik heb ondertussen een setje van cablemod in mijn andere pc , en ze liggen dicht bij elkaar betreft kwaliteit, cable heeft wel verschillende soorten, meer buigzaam oa,

de sata kabel heb ik ook gekocht op ebay, blauwe kabel omdat ik ook blauw had in mijn andere kabels, maar ze kwamen van een andere verkoper dan van degene van wie ik de andere kabels heb gekocht,

ondertussen is de pc wel wat veranderd, ik ga binnenkort wel eens een update zetten hier, hoe de pc er nu uitziet, mijn hardware is beetje "ge-updated"

bedankt en prettige dag nog,

Geen probleem hoor, heb ondertussen mijn eigen build al een tijdje af.

Ik heb mijn kabels gekocht bij ensourced.net, ben niet voor ebay gegaan omdat ik toch niet volledig overtuigd was van de betrouwbaarheid. Zeer professioneel werk, helaas best wel wat shipping moeten betalen aangezien het vanuit Amerika kwam, maar uiteindelijk het echt wel waard.

Ik heb nog geen foto's geupload van mijn eigen build, maar ik ga het snel doen, zal hier een link posten dan kan je eens kijken!

Ik zal binnekort zeker eens komen kijken naar je update ;)

grt!

hi, only thing for me what i dont like 100% are the tubes, for me they are way to long, think around 40 cm long, the s340 is a small case , i did try to hide them more,but no luck,

first i wanted to buy a corsair H115, i did got a H60 before , but they are pretty loud fans, or i had to change the fans, but i was hooked on the looks of the x62 ;-)
