Description

I've always been a pc gamer and I've always wanted to build what I would class as the perfect gaming build - Small but powerful, I think I have done it.

This is the 2nd personal build I've ever done and I wanted it to be perfect - Any improvements please let me know!

It started out with just being a small upgrade but I went a bit OTT! Mainly due to wanting a VR Headset. I had been leading up to this build with the extra's so had everything except the case and contents.

6700k is running at 4.7 with 1.34v. Temps are around 30 at idle going to around high 60 while gaming - I did see 72 while benchmarking.

I got sick of waiting for a 1080 as my 660ti was dying on me! Bought the 980ti and have a step up in process for the sc. Got this running at around 1525 core, was at 1550 but after a few hours of GTA it started going a little. Temps idle at around 30 since I've put the power in adaptive and so far no fps loss!

GTA 5 plays pretty much the highest settings at or above 75fps.

Only messed around with the vive for a little but it seems like at 1.5 super sampling on Assetto Corsa is around the 90fps mark but told official support will up this a little.

So far very happy, this will be the only time in my life I will have a build like this unless I get a few promotions. I wanted it to be as neat as possible as I take pride in my work.

Only issues was the board had to be sent back, I was having dual channel issues and the front usb's not working and just a generally unstable mobo. Give credit to Amazon though returned no problem and the replacement was less than 24 hours with prime.

Hope you enjoyed having a look. I certainly love having it on my desk - Just need to hide the wires!!

Hey awesome build! I am working on a very similar build and had a few questions. Did you have issues fitting the mobo IO shield? When I had it installed the mobo wouldn't line up with the screw mounts. And this may be a silly question but what direction do you have you rad fans blowing? Thank you for all the pictures!

I felt like I had to push the mobo more than I would have liked towards the IO shield for it to line up. Felt like I was completely flatting the foam. I have them push then pull, basically both facing into the case :)
