I use this rig for some gaming mostly. The PC easily crushes gaming at 1440P and is great for multi-window multi-tasking.
If you want, you may suggest any benchmarks/games I should run and I will try to run them.
The build rationale starts about here
4690K: Games like a champ once overclocked a bit.
NH-D15: Thought it wouldn't fit but it just barely did
Z97 pro gamer: Asus Board with a red theme with great OC capability and BIOS options.
HyperX black: Works and hasn't caused errors.
850 evo and WD blue: The gamer's choice since 2014.
Asus ROG strix 1070: "Silent but deadly" would describe it well.
NZXT source 210: It didn't shatter... yet. Scratched the side panel window multiple times.
Supernova P2 750w: Great power supply, decent cables, 24 pin cable is too thick for many cases.
Windows: actually a windows enterprise license.
industrial fans: does the job and can be silent.
HP envy 32: Great for work, Decent for gaming.
12: K70 Rapidfire: Great keyboard for competitive gaming
Deathadder Chroma: One of the best mice out there for multi purpose usage.
My passport 2TB: does a good job and has a large capacity, didn't corrupt.. yet.
Witcher 3 (STLM, HD Reworked, etc): 60-80FPS at 1440P
BioShock Infinite: 150-200FPS at Ultra 1440P, dips to 100FPS in a few scenes
MineCraft (Continuum Ultra, Bump Mapping, S&K x512 all others maxed): 20-15FPS at 1440P
Counter Strike: Global Offensive: 250-300FPS at 1440P, occasional dips to 180FPS
Leave any suggestions for improvements down in the comments section. Please describe picture requests in detail (angle, what to showcase, etc etc) and I'll try to fulfill your request.
Gamer's choice Pros: OC's to 4.2Ghz easily. Runs all single GPU configurations just fine. Stays relatively cool. Cons: Not for heavy workstation users. Succeeded by the 6600k
Pros: Best air cooler on the market by cooling performance, one of the most silent ones . Cons: puke brown fans.
Basically a Z97-A with a red color scheme, overclocks well and has a nice layout. Easily works with most builds.
Reliable and good looking RAM for a reasonable price.
Gamer's choice for a 2.5inch SSD.
Gamer's choice for a 3.5inch mass storage drive.
Best all-rounder GTX 1070. overclocks slightly weaker than the AMP extreme but uses less power. Slightly louder than the MSI gaming X, but stays significantly cooler.
Decent case: Cable management: 8/10 plenty of room to lay cables out but some thick cables don't fit Cooling: 5/10 Fits the biggest and baddest Air coolers, but can't even accommodate a 240mm rad Build quality: 9/10 side-panel window a little flimsy and easily scratched but the aluminium frame is really robust Ease of use: 10/10 Delivers with everything you'd need, plenty of expansion options, didn't encounter any issues during assembly. Ease of use is near some high end cases like the H440 and Define R5 (in my opinion).
Great power delivery and stability. Great cable options, with okay length for most ATX cases. Custom cable options readily available. The 24pin ATX cable is a little thick for many budget cases like mine.
Moves a lot of air at the highest settings, can easily run silently at 1500-2000RPM. Can be used with Noctua chromax anti vibration fittings to fit your build theme.
Okay monitor for doing both work and gaming at the same time.
Lasted through tough use, the rubber grips came off but i cleaned it off and stuck it back with some superglue, and now it works fine. The left mouse key started squeaking after 2 years of use which is understandable.
