All right, so as a preface I know there's gonna be some people on here that are gonna **** all over my build... And I'm gonna defend every ******* choice I made cause that's the type of ******* I am. Plus I'm making this build looking at what my upgrade path is down the road. Now with that out of the way lets get into the parts that make up this system...which also happens to be my first build in 10 years and will also be my first computer since my laptop died five years ago. Yeah I've been iphone'ing the **** out of everything for a long *** time now.
Case- now this is the one of two areas in my build that I can say I purchased soley on the fact that I like the way it looks. Now on a side note I thought I ordered the flat black with a window model, but I was instead shipped the "m" model which is gloss black and has two less usb side panel ports and was suppose to have a 120mm fan in the front but mine has a 200mm... Plus this model has dust filters in the front air holes. I was going to return it but didn't feel like going through the hassle, and I'll probably put my own windows in the case at some point in the future.
cpu - i3 6100...here comes the **** storm...yep I went with a dual core *******...and it's gonna piss you off even more as you continue reading the rest of my specs...but this dual core is all I need for now and I plan on moving up to a 6600k sometime down the road. But for now two cores and four threads is more than enough.
cpu cooler - Deepcool captain 240...yep that's right ************* I put an aio on an i3...what ya gonna do about it eh. Yeah, I was thinking hey this looks cool as **** and matches my case to a T. Then I was thinking this'll be perfect for when I get an 6600k. So yeah suck it.
mobo- gigabyte z170mx gaming 5- yep a z170 board with an i3...that's right...what ya gonna do about it... First off it's a sexy ******* board...secondly it's got more features than I could ever need so yeah...deal with it.
ram- patriot viper elite 2666 2x8gb yep sixteen sweet ******* gigs of ram, overclocked too...why so fast you ask... Well for some ******* reason an i3 on a z170 with fast ram gets better fps...why I don't know but it does. Plus they look cool as **** too
psu- Evga supernova g2 550w... I mean if there's anything you can't ***** about its this...one of the best psu's period.
hdd- wd blue 1tb...again do I need to say anything here...I do plan on putting an ssd in at some point in the near future.
Os- windows 10 usb...yep I bought a legit copy...cause all I ever hear is go to kinguin or Reddit...but no one gives any ******* help on what to do once there so yeah...
keyboard - Logitech k360...did I mention this pc will be hooked up to my tv so wireless was the way to go...having two young kids and cables running around don't go well together
mouse- Logitech m360...see above...
now you're probably asking...what about a gpu you've got all these great and ****** parts mixed together and your gonna use igpu...no I'm not going to use igpu asshat...I was waiting for the rx480...but well we all know that that turned out plus the fact that the 8gb model is 380$ here in the great white north and I flat out refuse to pay that ********. The 4gb model is 259$ at newegg but it's never in stock so I'm currently holding my **** in my hand at a crossroads. Do I wait for aib rx480s or hope to find a 970 for a resonable price cause they're still 400$ here and yeah **** that noise. So maybe the rx 470 will come around and be awesome or maybe the 1060 will come out and be everything the 480 promised it would be and more but probably be stupidly over priced cause Canada y'all...or maybe a r9 380 cause those are about 250$ right now...so like I said **** in hand not sure what to do with it.
So I'm still waiting for the ram, os, keyboard and mouse to arrive, should be here tomorrow(Friday). I have it all built its just a matter of plugging in the ram and I'm good to go. I did boot it up and I got 3 beeps from my speaker and all the fans spun, the pump pumped and the leds glowed so I'm pretty sure I've got it all done up right.
