This is my first ever build and my first ever gaming PC!
I'm not great at wiring so it doesn't look the best. I also fitted a LED strip at the top.
Front fans: 2
Back fan: 1
Top fans: 2 (Radiator)
Nice build +1. I like use of the LED strip. I do agree with the cable management but practice makes perfect (well sort of). You could have gone with a i5 and save some money without losing gaming performance. Well overall a bit overkill on CPU, RAM, and CPU cooler (if you don't overclock) but then again not my build so can't judge. A few more pics would be nice with some temps and FPS listings.
Thanks man, I agree with the overkill part haha. Ill get some fps ss's up soon :))
Your camera's lens is bent
Wow. Mot only do you have the i7-6700k cpu, but you also have a decent liquid cpu cooler, 16GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR4-3000 RAM, one of the best 250GB SSDs currently on the market, a not-too-shabby 1TB HDD, a very nice 1TB HDD, an EVGA 980 TI (very sturdy), 450D mid tower (easily the best mid tower you can get, and if you wanna get a full tower in the future get a 750D), and a very comfortable Mionix mouse. I honestly would go for a different monitor (you have a beast PC I would be sure to spend $500-700 on a nice monitor), and I'd get a pair of headphones (ATH-M50x) paired with a ModMic to have something nice for not only gaming but music as well. I'd personally get a Logitech mouse because they have better sensors, but Mionix mice are known as the most comfortable mice on the market. Your build is very good, you definitely deserve a +1
Hey man!! I appreciate that! And yes, I am planning on getting a nice monitor, maybe an ultrawide.
I personally recommend a 16:9 monitor because you can see farther up in games and it's better for movies. If you like seeing horizontally more than vertically in games or maybe like multitasking or editing and don't plan on watching many movies on your PC then go for the ultrawide. Obviously ultrawide monitors cost more but it's worth it depending on what you want to do with it. Yeah, the actual build part looks almost identical to my build.
Yea, the reason why i didnt get a good monitor right away is because as i was picking up my parts at frys, i realised how pricy this build was getting, so i tried to budget on a monitor. But i agree, 16:9 is ideal for most of everything
I hope you get the right one for YOU. Happy research.
who needs an nzxt manta when you can buy a 450d and a fisheye lens ? : D sweet build
beast build. why not go with i7 5820K for around the same price as the 6700k
Thanks! That was my original plan, but when I went to Fry's to buy all the parts, they were sold out on 5820k, so being the super impatient me, I couldn't wait so I bought the Skylake that I knew was also great. In plus, the 6700k is kinda already an overkill haha.
yeah i7 is overkill in most cases
Buys a 980ti gets a 1080p monitor
