Updates :)

Since my first post I have done many updates. I wanted to update my main pc with something more powerful, don't get me wrong my old Dell 755 still kick some *** but, it was time to change. A long the road I did not only build the pc I also put together a new table for my beast. But, after I realize that my place also needed some remodeling so I went to Home Depot to get me some paint for my place. Well that was only the start, after I finish with paint etc, I went ahead and bought new furniture haha. What started as PC project quickly became a major one, ending with the whole place new. I lot of time and effort were to into the whole build, and I am very happy with how everything came along. Hope You guys like and enjoy the build.

"What is up guys, Recently finish my build and I though it will be great to share it with the community. Since MSI did not pick me, well I decided to get me some goodies. JK, I don't even know how that ended up haha! This is a beast, is fast play game like nothing video editing what ever you throw at it. I was broke prior this build now I am worse, I'm seriously thinking about creating a go fund me account lol. I am very happy with my toy! Below are all spects"

CPU: The Core i7-6900K 4.4Ghz

Quad Core Processor is a great processor and future proof for those looking ahead. Its unlocked, potential for future overclocking. Has good multimedia benchmarks. Handles video editing pretty well and its power efficient. The processor at most will use 91 watts at normal use, probably a bit more when loaded, let not forget its the newest Skylake with energy saving in mind. Socket its LGA1151.

CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i GTX 70.7 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler

The cooler performs great, it goes very well with my setup which is all black. The radiator looks well built, and the back finish is just great. Now performance, the radiator is thick. Dual SP120L fans but there is a problem they are the loudest things on Earth. It was so bad that I am buying two Fractal Design Venturi High Pressure Series PWM 120mm Fans. For the price we pay of $130 we expect something more efficient and of higher quality!

Motherboard: Asus MAXIMUS VIII HERO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

This thing is great, features a variety of component that will most likely suit your needs. You can ustomize your own favorite LED effect. The UPREME FX does the job pretty well, not sure If I'll be needing a sound card.

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB)

Is just a great product, its fast DDR4-3000MHz and reliable energy consumption is pretty light 1.2V. Feature Intel XMP 2.0 (Extreme Memory Profile) Ready, if you want to overclock it. This ram perform great, for this the build I decide to throw 16GB for gaming/video editing for future purpose, I got them in red and I am loving them :). Just like they say. They rip man!!

Storage: Option 1 Samsung 850 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

Amazingly fast. SATA 6 Gb/s and if your are wondering the flash type here 3D V-NAND. Data transfer rate 768, read speed is up to 550 MBps and write speed is up to 520M Bps. 4k ready if you ask me. Option #2 Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive. This guy is purely for storage, 7200RPM in this days this speed feels a bit slow with the high videos and games demand. Still a very valuable component.

Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Video Card

Beastly card that run all game 60fps + at 1080p. PCI Express x16 3.0, GDDR5, Memory Size 6 GB, and 1228 MHz / 1140 MHz (Gaming in Mode). This is an amazing GPU that can handle intensive games at higher resolution with everything maxed out like a Champion! The cooling design will make any enthusiast happy, fans stop when not in use, and spin during hardcore gaming or bench marking. Also, Featuring a premium LED illuminated MSI GAMING Dragon which give that touch for a suit mood. You can choose the color that suits your build. Great touch from MSI, SLI comparable for those who are looking for more powaa!!

Case: Phanteks Enthoo Pro M ATX Mid Tower Case

This is comparable with the following standard Mobos ATX, Micro ATX, Mini ITX, ovear all great case for cooling. This case is amazing, for $70 bucks you are getting a great deal. Keep in mind, this case is not the quiets out there. If you want quietness look for fans that satisfy your needs. You have a side panel to show your hard earned build. There are 2 places to put your radiator, top or front; Hard drives are in the back, so your setup will look cleaner . The case will give you plenty of air flow for sure. The SSDs are tucked away nicely around the back under the motherboard in cradles that make installation super easy and the same goes for the HDDs which simply slot into a cradle and slide in the rack. You can only have 2 HDDs. Overall is a great case.

Power Supply: EVGA 850W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

This a is the most important component of the entire built system (haha). without it, you have nothing. But why EVGA? Well lets start with the 10 year warranty, yes 10 year!! I mean who else give you 10 year out of the water? The fact that they give this much for their power supply means a lot. Its fully modular, meaning you have the power to choose the amount of cable needed, 850 watt enough to support two MSI 980 TIs, and must importantly its 80+ Gold 90% efficiency. This power supply is built like a Rolls Royce!

Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM (64-bit)

You need an operating system in order to make your build run. Windows 10 64-bit is the newest edition of Microsoft, is friendly user and will not make you punch your pc like windows 8! It have similar characteristic to window 7 which I still prefer for its simplicity. Overall, you wont be disappointed.

Case Fan: Phanteks 140mm and Corsair CO-9050016-RLED 52.2 CFM 120mm Fans

In the package I throw two AF120 Quit edition to cool all components and a 140 keep thing on pair. This is the oem fan pretty quit but I will replace it with either Be Quiet! SILENT WINGS 2 140mm or Fractal Design Venturi High Pressure Series PWM 140mm Fan. This help reduce noise, because lets be honest who like to hear a lawn mower noise coming out your case.

Speakers: Edifier S730F

For my speaker I went with the Edifier S730 300 watts of pure power. Comes with 10-inch subwoofer and Multifunctional wired controller with a 2 ½ inch LCD display screen. Also, comese with a remoter control.

Phanteck Custom Cables

24 pins cable and 6+2 VGA cables, wonderful cables no complain.

Overall: I am pretty happy with this machine, if you don't have the found for fancy parts don't worry. Do you research and go with parts that suit your budged and your personality. I hope you all enjoy this thread and, found it helpful. Enjoy your day!! :)

Nice Build man. What config have you got cpu cooler and fans in? eg Intake for the H100? exhaust top and back??

  • 45 months ago
  • 1 point

Hi Jarv04, thanks you so much. Well the H100i GTX fans are set as intake front, with Fractal Design Venturi High Pressure. I strongly recommend those fans, the fans are set at 440 RPM Performance mode and the pump is set in Quiet Mode. Around 1410 RPM. Hope is the answer you were looking for

Yeh it was cheers, i am planning on doing a similar build with that case/ cooler combo and was just curious. are the other three fans exhaust?

  • 45 months ago
  • 1 point

Great!! The case is pretty nice, lots of air flow. But, will not be quiet unless you work every detail :). In the other hand, the top fans are set as intake the ones I am using are Corsair Air Series AF120 120mm Red LED Quiet Edition High Airflow. The rear fan is set as exhaust I am using the Be Quiet SILENT WINGS 2 140mm

Aloha Corsario18, excellent build! I'm currently piecing together the same Phanteks mid tower and H100i v2 and trying to decide on where to put the rad. I'mean leaning toward placing the rad on the front of the tower in a pull configuration. Is that how you have yours setup? Are the rest of the fans in the case exhaust?

  • 45 months ago

What's Drvasek! Great choice, not the quieter case but, is a great case. I placed mine in front for better air flow and look. I set the configuration as pull, the top fans 12mm are set as pull/intake and the rear is set as exhaust :)

I really like the look with the radiator pulling from the front. I think it's a much cleaner look. You have inspired me to do the same. I will be attaching the rad and fans here momentarily.

Thank you for the kinds words, I think out there are way better builds from where you can get ideas :). I've done many changes since this built was posted, custom cable, fans etc. I will be updating the thread soon
