Description

I've only owned two pc's. The first was a hand-me-down Core2 Quad with Gtx 260 sli build from from my dad and the other was this one. The first build was named Intelmunsta hence the name. I build this machine over springbreak during my senior year of high school, but I only had the cpu , Team elite ram, mobo, a Swiftech h140x, and the case. I couldn't post with the team elite ram so I bought the crucial ram and overnight shipped it. Then I could post and I updated my bios and then both sticks of ram were then recognized. I didn't get the 980 ti, the power supply, monitor, or 5tb hdd until later. I had some old monitors(3 1280x1024 and 1 1080p 24 inch) and hard drives from external housings and older computers from my grandmothers old pentium office pcs that i used in the meantime. Both the case and power supply I bought used on ebay because I figured they were of relatively equal value used or new. I got the 980 ti after the fury x came out because of the vram difference. Even though the h140x gave me good temperatures at 4.2 GHz I bought the antec AIO cooler because liquid was steadily disappearing from the h140x reservoir. However, I would not recommend it; I got up to 85 degrees celsius on stock while playing Batman: Arkham Knight (so not even 100% under load) and have under clocked it since. Also it has a loud inconsistent hum to it that I've had to drown out with the case fans. The monitor is okay but it isn't mountable and the stand kind of sucks and I definitely paid to much for it. Other than that, I like the build despite my poor cable management.

Nice CPU. Be aware of the 28 pcie lanes though.

Very nice build. Now you said something in the parts review about the CPU being a 28 Lane. That really is not that uncommon. It can sometimes cost you a pretty penny to get a 40 lane.

I was going to get the 5930k at first because of the pcie lane difference but I decided against it hoping that the broadwell i7s would be of the same chipset.
