Description

This was my first build! I wanted to build a rig for gaming and for streaming on Twitch. I feel like it's pretty future proof and that it will run many games to come in max settings. I've already played Far Cry 4, TERA, Titanfall and a few more on max settings and they look beautiful!

All in all I am super happy with how the build turned out. I do have to re-position the H100i in the future. I don't like the placement and I want to move the fans to push air through it instead of pulling like it is now.

Instead of moving the cooler just add 2 more fans in a push so then you have push/pull +1

Yeah, that's what I was going for. But I don't know if you can see it on the picture, I actually can't fit the 2 fans for the push configuration, which is why I put the fans in pull configuration on the outer part of the case. I was thinking of buying slim fans, but I can't seem find any!

Nice One :) I want to use almost exact same config (but with Extreme4 and fractal design define r5 black window). Great to see something like that already working! Under load do you manage to keep it 45* ? Andy why such big PSU?

Hey there! Thanks, I really enjoyed building my first rig. I run Corsair Link all the time and under heavy load while playing Skyrim on ultra it spikes sometimes to 47* I think I need to fiddle with the cpu cooler pump and re-apply thermal paste. I'm really not 100% sure what's the ideal temps. The power supply was just a bit of future proofing, I plan on running SLI at some point and higher resolution monitors, just wanted to make sure I had enough juice for it.

Temperature screenshots

Just wanted to add a couple of screenshots of my temps while under load. Couldn't figure out how to add them to the build album! So here's a link to an imgur album :)

Hey there! It actually has 2 1TB HDD's. I do wan to add more SSD's and a bigger HDD. Both my SSD and one of the 1TB drivers are already full at the moment!

Well technically it's the name that's sideways :) Another reason why I want to change the cooler.
