Finally built my first desktop after running on a AMD 3620 with a 730 and later a 1050 for forever, then trying a laptop with a i7-6700 and 960M for a few months. Finally sucked it up to buy and build one once the new intel series came out. Was going with i5-8400 for a while there, but they were never in stock and I also wanted this desktop to last quite a while without too many changes, a graphic card can be easily changed, so I thought a 1060 6GB would cover basic needs for quite a while. I tried to keep this build reasonably priced, as much as I would love something extremer than this, it's not needed at this point. Got it overclocked to 4.9GHz stable on the cpu, this is my first build, I'm not going it all that much, I was lucky MSI command center and youtube made it simple enough to get it there. It was on youtube I spotted some guys putting remotes in their desktops and after seeing that, did some research online and talking to buddies on eve, I found this $6 remote relay (Yes I know there is wake on land, didn't know if that'd go well with the ethernet at college) It works perfectly for turning the PC on from small distance away. Why would I need this? Because if a roommate wants to wake me up or keep me up all the time, the next best thing i could have is a way to turn a machine with filled with LEDs (Including extra ones plugged into the power supply from old kid's toys) that can be programmed to do about anything on start-up, does a great job lighting up a room and also a nice way to update steam games while I am away. It's a unique add-on if anything. First time experiencing an SSD too, look down at my phone while I do the usual wait for it to restart, already booted up by the time I unlock my phone, which is beyond sweet, thanks so much to the friend that got me that, I was going to skip over using one this build. He and another PC gaming friend basically pushed me to building this, really got me hooked now. Had to make it with a red and black design and add some deadpool figures to it to top it all off. Also, I have learned my lesson with cable management, I already hate my choice of a non-module power supply, both sides of my case are a mess of cables. Let me know your thoughts, love to know, putting it all together myself is really something new to me. UPDATE I: Moved the CPU power line to behind the motherboard, opened up alot of room to move other cables to behind, looks quite a bit cleaner.

Part Reviews


Works great so far, overclocked it to 4.9Ghz, stable so far on a hyper 212. All I needed for gaming and basic use.


Works for what I need, nice lighting, good bios for someone new from my experience being new


Was on sale cheap, matches my coloring


Just enough for an OS


Great and quiet for general storage

Video Card

Extreme enough to work well for what I need, caught it on sale


Deadpool colors and 5 built in fans, plus its wonderfully large

Power Supply

Cheaped out and got this over a moduler PSU, it's fine, cables are a bit short to do much besides reach where they need to be

Operating System

Got it free from university, good enough for me

4.9 ghz with CM hyper 212?? Great build +1

kingofpikachus submitter 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

Turns out I CM wasn't keeping the OC after every restart and also was doing something weird, it would OC to 4.9Ghz and my temps stayed at 77 C. But I went into the bios and tried to overclock it to 4.9GHz, it's stable, but at full load, runs all my fans at max to keep it at 90 C. Sooo to be safe, just going to put it at 4.8Ghz, stays at 85 C max load while only running the fans at 80% and keeping the top case fans on low so it is still mildly quiet

You should try and route some cables behind the motherboard tray. Other than that great build

kingofpikachus submitter 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

Yeah, moving just the CPU power line freed up alot of room on the edge of the GPU, was able to get alot of the cables behind the motherboard now, thanks :)

Awesome! Is the 7th picture the one with the update? If it is just the few things you moved def cleaned it up a bit!

kingofpikachus submitter 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

Yeah, that was the update, can see much more of the glow from the motherboard now

PlasLucas 1 point 14 months ago

do you game and if so what fps do you get?

kingofpikachus submitter 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

Yeap! Any games you want to know for? I'm not at my PC for a bit. I have Rainbow 6 Siege, overwatch, warframe, and a few others.

BRO great build but; however, you are bottle necking your ram boi get another stick.

kingofpikachus submitter 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

Whenever prices go down again or another sale, I know the RAM and VRAM I got is hurting me a little in some spots. RAM for sure I need sometime soon

BEATINGMYSON 1 point 13 months ago

sacampb 1 point 12 months ago

Nice build. I'm about to start my own first build. Any specific YouTube channel recommendations?

kingofpikachus submitter 1 Build 2 points 11 months ago

Jayztwocent I watched alot for getting my build together

sacampb 1 point 11 months ago

Thank you, appreciate it.

I can't seem to get my motherboard to clock the CPU up, I can't find the settings, can you tell me how please? I have the same CPU and Mobo

kingofpikachus submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

If you are using the command center, i have learned it somehow does not save. You have to go to the bios either from the boot or MSI fast boot settings, either advance or basic settings will allow you to set overclocks. Tons of youtube videos on the basics from there

Shastarocks 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

I got it now.

codcoleman1@ 1 point 1 month ago

I am thinking about getting a i5-9600k for my first PC build, i found it cheaper, i am interested in Overclocking it, what GHz do you recommend i start at?

Shastarocks 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

It depends on how well you cool it and the silicone lottery, most chips I would start around 4 GHz and go up from there, I have mine running at 4.5 GHz.
