I mainly am using this build for gaming, it's by far the fastest and most powerful computer I've ever owned.

Any questions on the build process or what I think about one of the parts I'll gladly answer.

Part Reviews


Great processer, haven't had any crazy CPU temp spikes yet(although I haven't OC'd yet). Temps stay in the 40c to 50c range. Once I overclock I'll update.

CPU Cooler

Super quiet, and keeps my CPU very cool. Very easy to install.


Haven't really messed with any of the features yet but so far so good. Also the wifi works amazing.


Super low profile. Easily fit under the nh-d15


First ssd I've ever owned. Super fast boot times are amazing.

Video Card

Super quiet and super cool card. I ran some benchmarks and played some games and have yet to hit over 60c. I'm still using stock fan curve.


Super easy case to work with. Cable management seemed trivial with this case.

Operating System

Sorry for the late reply, but when you build this, make sure to take the heat sink off, or leave it off if you don't build it out side the case, it is very hard to build around it.

Really well balanced build. Great parts selected for first build.

Very cool... I'm looking at building something very similar. Only big difference would be the CPU cooler, I think the Noctua coolers look terrible, but that's just me.

Do you just have one intake fan and one exhaust fan?

Wow, this is one of the first builds I've seen in a while where you have really good parts and used your money for the parts and not RGB. Well done
