My budget for this build was $1000. This is actually the third computer I have ever built and I focused primarily on gaming and some minor C4D work, the first two were with help from family members but this 3rd build was purely me and the parts were all carefully selected and reviewed for months before I made the final decision. I wanted a PC that would be somewhat future proof but not over kill therefore I went with DDR4 ram, a Kaby-lake processor, an overclock able motherboard, and a GTX 1070. The only problems that I encountered during this build are with the Hyper 212 EVO, this cooler took me hours to install and the instructions were very confusing, so confusing that I had to look up a youtube video after fiddling with it for a few hours with the instructions. I have installed various other coolers from various manufacturers but this cooler was by far the most frustrating. Once watching the video I was able to install the cooler correctly within a matter of a few minutes. Also due to me not installing the cooler properly the first time I tried using the old thermal paste from the previous install but I was receiving 50 degrees celsius at idle so I put new thermal paste on.
Great CPU for price/performance, if only it had hyperthreading.
This motherboard is sweet, it comes with LED's(im not a fan of LED's but these actually look quite nice in my case) also the BIOS UEFI is easy to use and fast. Although it seems that any GPU will block the LED's for the sound plate mine is for an ITX and I stil couldn't see the LED's let alone a full atx gpu.
Great company, the ram was only $110 for the highest clock speed.
Seems a little flimsy but does the job and is cheap.
Great graphics card, its a little overpriced but I got it on sale.
