Total budget was 900 dollars. includes everything except monitor. he wanted a computer that would last atleast 3 years at 1080p gaming, medium/high settings.
cpu-went with i5 6600k because of the overclocking potential and extra GHz stock.
cpu cooler- wanted to get an air cooler with some red, keeps the cpu idle at 28C will update with load temps. only con is to mount it i had to remove the second fan.
mobo-nice z170 board, i got a refurbished one from newegg the red really pops out
memory-wanted a 16gb red kit because well reasons
ssd- he has an 500gb drive that was 3/4s full so I decided to get one large ssd for silence and speed
gpu-I had to chose between the 480 and 1060, im a nvidia fan and for my brothers games nvidia is the way to go, haven't stress tested or looked at idle temps will update the temps.
case- cheap case looks good, cable management is a nightmare with only one hole, included fans dont make much noise tho. Worth the money
psu-wanted a decent 750w unit, only con is the semi modular cables being a pain to deal with trying to cable manage.
Great cooler, hard to mount but worth it for the aesthetics, how cool it keeps the CPU, and quiet
Nice mobo loving the bios especially when coming from a h110. Looks great to
Great ram, it's nice and red and well ram.
Nice queit ssd, if I had the extra money I woulda bought either a 1tb ssd or two 525gb adds.
Only one cable management hole, screw holes sometimes didn't line up
Nice psu wish I woulda gon full modular. With the 750 psu the fan hasnt came on yet.
Sound quality is amazing
