Welcome to my second build Winter has come... , i built this back in April and didn't get a chance to upload it to pcpartpicker :/ . This system is used primarily for gaming but also for admin work and programming. I built the system around a winter theme in light of the new/current season of Game of Thrones with also a hint of RGB to spruce the colour from time to time. It is a massive upgrade from my previous machine that didn't have enough kick when it came to the latest demanding games that are currently out. Why I choose the following important parts:
Intel i7 6700K
I choose the 6700K because I already bought it before Kaby lake came out :/ , but its still a great performer so its grand :)
NZXT Kraken X62
Got it over others to match my theme and also because it got great reviews, painted the radiator white to go with the rest of theme :)
Asus Sabertooth Z170 S
As soon as seen this board i wanted it straight away, it was hard to get at the time but i managed to acquire the last one on amazon :), doesn't have fancy rgb but still looks fantastic!
Samsung 850 EVO 1TB
Got it over a m.2 because of price as it was cheaper than the 960 EVO at the time, super fast has my OS and some games on it
GALAX GTX 1080 HOF
This card is massive!! and also a beast :) got it to match my theme and also because it is a excellent card barley fitted in my case!
NZXT S340 Elite
Love the tempered glass and additional ssd trays, improved on a already great case and also comes in white ;) , only problem with this case is the airflow is not the best and primary aimed towards liquid coolers.
Brilliant monitor with excellent Dell QC , image is sharp and colours are great for a TN Panel. Gsync and 144HZ make it an almost perfect monitor.
IKBC Z87 RBG
Brilliant keyboard with RGB and cherry browns, tried to get a ducky shine 6 snow edition but they were sold out everywhere.
Ensourced custom sleeved cables
Could not recommend them enough! , excellent custom cables and were perfect for my build.
I hope you like my build and i hope to do more future builds, including a Custom liquid set-up when I have the time and money :) hope all of you are enjoying the new Game of Thrones season so far! :)
Remember the long night is coming...
