come check out my youtube KiiLAx- ive got videos of pc builds & Benchmarks on my gpu.
Its been about a month since i first built my pc, & i was gaming on a tv that wasnt 1920x1080. And it was killing me. So for 1 month i saved up money for a monitor & microphone. Best decision ive made ( other than building my pc ) I can tell the difference & ive only been using it the monitor 1 hour. The microphone is great for my youtube.
This was my very first build, i was originally using a All In One pc ( i know thats terrible ) so you can tell it was a major upgrade. Took me about 2 hours to build it & i am in love with my gaming pc, i am going to be upgrading this cpu cooler & case in about 3 months because its really the only thing i had alot of trouble with.
CPU- I went with this cpu because its alot cheaper than the intel i5 4690k. i really didnt have the money to drop an extra $130+ on the i5. i currently can overclock to 4.2ghz at 28 degrees,
Cpu Cooler- installing this cooler in my case was a b*tch, i hope it was just cause it was my very first build and not the cooler. took me atleast 1 hour and 30 minutes im sure the reason is because of the case i chose, not enough space for this cooler. this coooler is well besides the hassle it was getting it attached. keeps my cpu cool @ 20 degrees without overclocking.
Motherboard- i love this mother board it looks beautiful, i can over clock my cpu within the click of a button (oc genie) im a sucker for red & black so this caught my attention the most. its has audio boost on the motherboard so no need for a sound card. supports 2 way sli Gpu's, 32gb of ram, and 6 fans can be attached to the motherboard.
Memory- 8gb is all i need for the next year or 2 so no need for 16gb for gaming just yet.
Storage- samsung 850 evo this is my very first ssd and i am happy with is boots up windows within 7 seconds, should've just got the 250gb but i only use it for my operating system & to boot up The witcher 3 faster than my hdd. My hdd came from my old pc so i just used it.
Video card- the only thing i dislike about it is it takes away from the color scheme i was going for other than that it works great. able to play games on ultra high settings 60 fps. the fans only boot up when it reaches 50 or 60 degrees .
Case- do yourself a favor and get a better case please, dont get me wrong i like this case alot, but there isnt alot of room for cable management, i also wanted to attach my cpu cooler on the top case fans i couldnt cause there wasnt any room, so i had to put it where the exhaust fan is located. this case comes with 2 fans both 120mm sp fans the intake fan has a red led which is nice. supports up to 2 ssd's & 4 hdd. you can have 6 fans inside this case but with my cables in the way i can only have 5.
power supply- works good
Monitor- Ive never owned a monitor for gaming ive always used tv's . I can tell the difference know lol. This monitor is great 2ms response time & 76 Refresh Rate. 23.6 inches is a little big but i love this monitor..
Blue Yeti- i got this microphone you my recordings & youtube. works great nothing bad to say about it.
