This is my first build and my first desktop. I wanted to get into x99 rather than z97 because you have more possibilities with x99. but that came at a great cost, so I only have a gtx 960 and no hdd. Im using this computer for browsing(like linus, 50+ tabs sometimes) and for playing some heavy games such as Witcher 3. And I only have a 1080P monitor XD
CPU: Freakingly fast and costs only 40$ more than a i7 4790k, temps are great and it overclocks like a mad cow. I once oc'ed it to 4.4 GHz at 1,225 volt, which is quite good.
CPU COOLER: The H75 is great, good temps at low noise. I had to go with a water cooler, because I think it looks much better than a normal air cooler.
MOBO: I needed something which was stealthy black, had a lot of up to date features and cheap. This suited the task perfect, it has 32 gb/s m.2 support for 3 way sli with a 5820k, and has 8-dimm slots.
RAM: Since this is x99, I had to use ddr4 and quad channel memory. so i went for a 4x4GB kit from Kingston. It looks great and matches my mobo perfectly.'
STORAGE: Originally I had in mind to buy one 250 GB Samsung 850 evo, but when a deal for these to suckas came up, I was on the hunt. I have reached speeds up to 930 MB/S which is incredible. Im already low on storage, but i have plans to soon upgrade to a 1 TB hdd.
GPU: As I said, I had to cut corners. I had to get the best 960, and when I saw a review about this it was probably the best too. It is quiet, it has a back plate and its mat black (mostly)
CASE: Good, feels solid, and its easy to build in. In other words: Fantastic.
PSU: I had not actually read any reviews about this, which was a huge mistake, very loud and not so good quality. Can not recommend.
New PSU: The RM750I is excellent, no noise at all. The fans start spinning at 300 watts. Its the ultimate psu for quiet builds.
Wireless network card: TP-LINK t8e archer is great, supports ac, and it has 3 antennas.
I am planning to add more pics in the future, and making it more red on the mobo part, since the red is kinda offset. Please let me know what I could improve :)
Update: I have scrapped the red/black idea, and going with black/white instead. I have looked at the Define S, and im also planning to get some new fans for my H75. What fans do you guys recommend?
