The Experiment 626

by Louis531

Description

Good day guys, thank for viewing my build, English is not my mother tongue so please bear with my language :) First, this build is named 626 because the color scheme is the combination of black and blue which is similar to stitch-one of my favorite childhood cartoon lol. This build was started in April 2015 and had gone though few transformation before its finally complete in March 2016.

CPU: I don't do intensive task or intensive gaming with my PC, should do me well for at least 2-3 years I suppose.

CPU Cooler: By far the best looking CPU cooler IMO due to the sexy sleeved tubing, I know there is better option at cheaper price but hey, aesthetic matters too hah.

Motherboard: It has all the features that I need, look nice and clean, and the price is reasonable too, nothing much to complain at this price point.

Ram: Ram doesn't affect performance much, it's personal preference that matters, this Corsair Vengeance Pro look really good IMO (Dominator Platinum look even better but I could not afford lol). I know 8GB is sufficient for my daily usage but 16GB to future proof a little bit.

SSD: Mainly for Windows, applications and games that I play frequently, 240GB is sufficient to me.

Hard Drive: Regret lol, should have purchased 1TB variant as the price was not much in difference.

GPU: One of the best bang for buck GPU, I mostly play Dota 2 and sometimes GTA 5, AC and Tomb Raider at 1080p, the front led is a bonus.

Case: This case look really fantastic, large window panel, mid plate to separate PSU and HDD cage, look even better led fans are installed at front.

PSU: A really good quality PSU (Its a tier 1 if not mistaken) compared to its predecessor Rm650. A little bit overkill for my current build but secure me in case I go for 980ti in the future (when pascal is launch and the price for 900 series drop lol).

Fans: These ring fans are awesome! Not too bright or dim, just nice in the case. Not much selection of decent 140mm led fans in my country, so Corsair Af140 is the way to go.

Monitor: I won this from a lucky draw at Nvidia Gtx950 launching event, although it don't have G-Sync, but its a 144hz 1080p monitor! What else I can complain when I am lucky to win this? I really appreciate.

Keyboard & Mice: I don't have to explain much If you own this keyboard as well! Its aluminium constructed, the only downside is the led is not as bright as Chroma and Strafe.

Once again, thanks for viewing, if I wrote anything offensive, please accept my apology, I didn't intend to do that. Good luck and have a nice day :)

Great quality components!


-One thing to note, GTAV and Tomb Raider are quite CPU Intensive so you Technically do play intensive games :p


Love it!

Nice Build! It will last for quite a while and can run practically any game you throw at it. I'll Upvote as it seems very good for people who want to join the master race at high settings!

Louis531 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

Although I don't play game much but high/ultra is a must!

nice build man! where'd you get that mouse pad?

Louis531 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

Its a generic mouse pad, cost around $8 USD in my country!

mlach 4 Builds 2 points 38 months ago

This...this is perfect.

Louis531 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

Thanks!

ColoradoJones12 2 points 38 months ago

Why 2 af fans and one sp?

Louis531 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

That SP is for HDD right in front the fan :)

SpecificAlduin 2 Builds 2 points 38 months ago

That looks amazing! I love the shirtless pic #2. +1 for name, clean cables, and color scheme.

Louis531 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

Thank!

DEnumber50 2 points 38 months ago

+1 on the build, it looks excellent.

On a note, I see that the clip on the RAM slot for the stick nearest the CPU isn't clicked down all the way. I would for sure try and press that down until the clip is completely closed onto the RAM.

DEnumber50 1 point 38 months ago

My eyes were playing tricks on me, looks to be the empty slot. Wasn't looking closely enough. My bad.

Louis531 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

Just checked and its all the way down, thanks for pointing out anyway!

Squishbean1 2 Builds 2 points 38 months ago

This looks nice. Good color combination.

rhali8 2 Builds 2 points 38 months ago

If only my bedroom was as clean as this PC...

+1 :D

floridaboz 4 Builds 2 points 38 months ago

description, parts, cable management, picture quality and number of pictures. I think i will have to give this a 10/10.

I love the cable sleeves and how you made the led and colors work together nicely.

Louis531 submitter 2 Builds 2 points 38 months ago

Thanks for 10/10 rating !

floridaboz 4 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

you get nothing from it.

But it is rare that a build really catches my eye like yours did.

Louis531 submitter 2 Builds 2 points 38 months ago

It's my pleasure you catch your eyes :)

sniperpro 2 points 38 months ago

way to keep the color scheme

NanaCream 2 points 37 months ago

Where did you get the cables from?

JaiBarney 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

Ohana means family.

You know what I mean. Hehe! +1 for nice build!

Louis531 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 36 months ago

Hey thanks!

gorkti200 3 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

Very pretty build, I like it! +1 and grats on that free monitor!

CPU: I don't do intensive task or intensive gaming with my PC, should do me well for at least 2-3 years I suppose.

If you don't do intensive tasks with a 4GHz 4core/8thread CPU, you should be good for 5+ years easy! =)

Louis531 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

Thanks! perhaps a little overclock could extend to 6+ year? haha

BiaxialObject48 1 point 36 months ago

Hi there! I like your system, and I have the same graphics card, CPU,a and motherboard. I was looking into the Thermaltake fans you have, and I have a question about them. Do the LEDs match with the LED on the graphics card? I am color-matching my build and I really need to make sure that the colors are within a tolerance so that it will look good.

If possible, could you also post a picture of your PC in the dark, so I can see the LEDs of the fans and the graphics card?

Thanks! +1

Louis531 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 36 months ago

Hi, they are the same, leave your email here and I will send you some pics in dark :)

BiaxialObject48 1 point 36 months ago

Oh ok, thanks. My email is appdevswift@gmail.com.

Could you maybe upload a front shot of the case while leds are on?

Novastorm4332 1 point 14 months ago

Can i have it

screaminseahawk 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Oh man, I love the build! Are those blue/white/black cable extenders? I think that’s exactly what I have been looking for! Do you recall where you got them?
