Description

Hey guys, it's been a while since I last built my PC. Anyways, here's my second build featuring a i3-4170 and HD7750. My main use for this rig is to play Dota2 and MK10 while doing some "college-level" school stuffs like 3D modelling with Maya and game programming with Unity. I will also do YouTube stuffs on some occasions (iamlux20)

Not much to say about something, but most of the parts here were bought brand new, while retaining the storage drives from my previous build. As far as I know, 7750's nVidia counterpart is between 650 and 650Ti so I'm happy with it and will soon upgrade to RX 470 (once the hype is over and prices go down). Other than that, it can run Dota2 on high settings with 85% render on a stable 60FPS.

PS: For some people outside of the Philippines, Tecware F3's US counterpart is DIYPC-F2 series. Only key difference is wires are black and color theme is between black/red and black/blue.

Part Reviews

Motherboard

Between this and B85M-D3H, I toss-coined the decision and went for this. The only key difference is between the SATA ports (in case I want to fill everything up) and not anything else. I also am a "fan" boy, so I chose the 2 boards that has the same amount of fan headers on the motherboard. Only downside I got is that the LAN port was dead so I went back to the store and replaced it within the day. Everything's running fine now

Power Supply

Got this as a used component, but do not underestimate Seasonic as a one-time use PSU. Most PSUs out there were just rebrands from Seasonic OEM PSUs, Corsair to name one (until they broke off and moved to Channel Well). I got this for ~$52 realizing it is a semi-modular and 80+ Gold. I felt I won a PSU lottery with that budget

Get a HIGH level i7 because those prices are cheaper now when u can upgrade

not in our country. prices between Haswell and Skylake has only ~$2-10 difference. the reason I went Haswell is that I already have a kit of DDR3 prior to the build

There are certain DDR3 skylake motherboards, but they shouldn't be used for too long since DDR3 has high voltages and the CPU-integrated IMC would be destroyed. You could have got that type of mobo and then changed the ram to ddr3l whenever you had the money.

Glad you went with that PSU, it's just so a very high quality unit!

maybe after a year, can't earn that much. also need to upgrade case due to lack of space for cable management between sata data, power, and front panel connectors
