My third build and one I have been waiting for since a long time. I didn't hold back myself much when it came to parts and tried to extend where I could to get better and long term performance. I went from 6500 to 6600K, Rx480 to R9 Fury. Wanted that beautiful EVGA 1070 but it was just little too expensive for me. Someday maybe. and obviously from an H170 board to a z170 one.
I had pretty much fixated myself on Core v21. It offers something very few cases offer i.e. Horizontal motherboard installation. And what that means is your GPU is 'right side up' with that beautiful heat-sink and fan assembly that you love so dearly visible all the time.
The prices that you see are all sale or rebate prices that I waited for and grabbed as soon an item went down. The CPU, Motherboard, RAM and Toshiba drive are from Microcenter. I got the RAM open box hence so cheap. GPU And Monitor are from Jet, thanks to their wonderful discount codes and what not. I admit I did make two different accounts to make use of them. Sorry Jet. PSU, Cooler and Case are from Newegg. Got $20 rebate on the case. While got the PSU on sale. Mouse and Mouse pad from Amazon. Items marked $0.0 are from my previous build.
The Build went fine overall, despite taking some time. Having built before in more conventional tower cases, it took a little while to adjust the new orientation. I think most time was spent on installing the PSU. Core v21 comes with this PSU bracket but its a pain to install and you can honestly do without it.
I also messed up installing the cooler in first attempt as I overdid thermal paste and when I went to place the cooler on CPU it kind of oozed out between the cooler/CPU joint. I had to painstakingly clean the CPU top, cooler base, reapply the thermal paste and reinstall the cooler. H7 is VERY easy to install, however it can get a little tricky if you haven't got someone to help you as you need to tighten the screws from the bottom of the board while holding the cooler from the top.
The build booted on first attempt. Coming from an 860K, lets just say I'm blown away by 6600K. Its just amazing how good these chips are from Intel and how cool they run. I'm running 4.3GHz @ 1.2V. I barely touch 50'C while gaming.
Late Edit: The PSU is not 750Watt. It 620Watt. PcPP does not list the fully modular version of 620Watt M12II, only the 750watt, so that is what I went with in the list.
