Description

When I started hearing about the 6700k, I knew it was time for a new build. Even if it meant the wife chewing me out over building another computer. Anyways, I "thought", I was a AMD guy. Don't get me wrong, I still have much respect for my fx6300 but it cant compete with skylake.

Some of the parts I was able to rip out of my previous build, like the hard drives, op drive and power supply. So I did save money and most of the parts I did have to buy I got off of eBay.

All and all, the build is pretty solid. I have it overclocked to 4.5ghz. From what I have read, some people are taking them up to 4.9ghz, stable. Pretty crazy.

Next upgrade will probably be a Samsung 950 pro. I've become pretty numb to the speed of the 850 evo.

Sorry about the crappy pictures. My camera on my phone(Nexus 6), sucks a$$.

Nice build!You should add in a Harddrive for mass storage in the future unless that 1TB external drive is suppose to be your harddrive...

Also if you want to take pictures that look amazing with you Nexus there is some little things you have to do.. Go outside for sunlight. In sunlight phone cameras work best Turn down the ISO to lowest, never use auto ISO *Turn up to the highest Megapixil count even if it's not a 16:3 aspect ration

Try doing those and you will see some pretty nice pics

Nice job!

FYI - the 6700k gets up to 4.6 easily. Beyond that is silicon lottery with only something like 3% of all 6700k able to hit 4.9.

Have fun with your rig and thank your wife for being understanding...

I must have got lucky with the silicon lottery. I am at 4.7ghz, 1.32 volts, and cap at 66c on 100% load test with a smaller water cooler.

Have you tried M.2 ssd yet? No cables, super fast, very cool.

I have not tried it yet but that will be my next upgrade. I heard they are insanely fast!

you def might be on the side of luck. 66°c at 100% load. I've read that expect to see high 70's when you start to push them.

Awesome build! I want to ask, are you using the stock fans? What's your opinion of them? I'm planning on buying the MasterCase Pro 5 myself and keeping the stock fans would save me $45.

i am not using the stock fans. im using a 120mm jet flo in the back and two 140 cryorig fans in the front. the two fans on the corsair h110i v2 are the only stock ones. i dont really know anything about there stock fans that came with the case because i removed them right away. they might be good. idk.

the case is well worth it tho. damn near tool free. so many different configs and so much space.

Hi, I’ve been experiencing flickering with my P2415Q, as far as I researched, the issue only occurs on P2415Q’s, can you please test this reproduction example I created: http://www.kaansoral.com/images/pixel2/index.html - on non-P2415Q monitors it’s a smooth animation, on P2415Q’s, it’s flickering heavily

i got a little bit of flickering about 20 secs in. but nothing serious. i had to really stare at it to notice.

Thanks for trying it out

I had a rev01, received a replacement rev03, both flicker heavily/very-noticeably when there are pixellated things moving around - can't play pixel games

Hi, nice build... Did your radiator fit perfectly on that spot ? Because I have the same case but I'm having hard time with the corsair h115i ... If yes I'd exchange the models... Thank you...

i had no issues fitting the h100i v2 up top. i am not sure if the dimensions between the two differ.

if you get this mobo for a decent price, then i def recommend it. i got a really good deal on it. but if you cant find it on sale, i would look at some mobos in the same price range that have some extra features.
