Description

I use this build for mostly gaming, school and beginner level programing. First build and extremely excited how smoothly everything went. The hardest part of the build was trying to fit the cord from the power supply to the cpu, (had to take out the grommet then put it back in after the cord got through).

Another issue I had was putting on the hyper 212 EVO, (needed one extra hand) probably just a noob move though. Other than that it was extremely fun and inspirational would recommend all these products if you can find them at those prices or less.

The bios in the asus z9z a is extremely easy to control fan speeds with and it comes with 6 sata 6 connectors if you don't use the pcie connections.

 I was also extremely shocked at how high my gpu overclocked to, had slight issues with coil whine at loading screens but then I figured out that you could go into msi afterburner and use the Riva Tuner Statistics Server and limit the fps your card outputs to match your max screen FPS which stopped 100% of all coil whines.

 Saved me from freaking out about coil whine I recommend you all watch the video if your having any problems with Coil whine

 The Fans that came in the case are extremely quite, and the corsair fan is also pretty quite and I can't hear the power supply fan ever even when benchmarking or gaming, definitely recommend these products and the case for first time builders.

 The Screen is beautiful even though its a tn panel and a lot bigger then I first expected, but I've learned to love the extra space.

  The Logitech g13 was an amazing value for an awesome piece of gear that I use in all games except fighting games, The clock on it is super usefull when gaming.

   I would also recommend the Amazon basics speakers that are only around $10 but waaaaaaaaaaaay better than the stock speakers on the monitor, and be sure to get a long screwdriver around 10 inches or so that's magnetic, or you can just magnetize it your self with a magnet. you can youtube how to do it (it's pretty easy) you can get a pack of 6 magnets for a local Home Depot for like $3.00.

 I'm not a pro gamer but when I game in injustice I use the k120, which doesn't feel as horrible as I thought it would (keep in mind that I have never used a mechanical keyboard though) but for me it was pretty comfortable.

 I just started using the hard drive today, so no problems yet.

 If anyone has any more questions on the build or needs help feel free to leave a comment an I'll get back to you as soon as possible

 I also recommend researching all of the products you plan on buying and seeing at least 3 to 4 reviews from reviewers and regular reviews from customers to see if it's overwhelmingly positive or negative.

  In the process of uploading pictures now

 Almost forgot about the mouse it feels awesome and I would definitely recommend it here's a link to the amazon page

Moved The Fans around and added the Seagate hard drive in the last picture, lowered core clock slightly due to far cry 4 crashing twice during the same mission but still a pretty successful OC

you might want to watch that angle with the cooler. Nice build tho and good cable management

The case made it super easy to cable mange, Yea the cooler was the hardest part to install for me, should I just nudge it a bit to even it out?

I wouldn't personally if I didn't have to but I think if you really are bothered by it you would have to reinstall the heatsink at the right angle.

How much did you overclock your CPU and what temperatures are you getting with your hyper 212 evo?

My chip ran extremely hot unfortunatley when I tried oc'ing it on the evo. I could only get around 4.5 at 1.3 v, but it would hit 79 to 85 on prime95, now when I overclock it on the noctua i can achieve 4.6 ghz at 1.3 but it still gets 77 max at 1.3 v. so I decided to not overclock it and run it stock. I'm thinking of getting a custom loop though.
