Description

This was my early Christmas present to myself since there were so many deals going on. I haven't built a new comp in almost 6 years so this was very much needed. I'm using this for gaming, recording, and streaming so this will more than accommodate these needs. I have my CPU set at 4.1GHz and at idle I run around 23°c and at load I haven't seen it peek over 65°c.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great solid CPU, set mine to 4.1GHz and runs great

CPU Cooler

Easy to install and keeps my i5 super cool. VERY silent

Motherboard

Great OC abilities and easy to use bios

Storage

Using for my boot drive and drivers. Good speed and fast booting

Video Card

I love this card, all my games look so nice and this card just eats up anything I throw at it

Case

This case was so much fun to build i, so much room and great air flow. Just wish the controller had a few more different RGB modes.

Power Supply

East to install, SATA cables seemed a bit short for my liking but all in all does the job great for a fully modular PSU

Well Merry early Christmas to you! Congrats on the build. I'll be doing a similar setup (i5-6600k + gtx 1070) as a late Christmas present to myself, as my funds are a bit short right now ;). How's it working out for you?

perfect, its so silent and fast. I have yet to have any complaints on this system, everything compliments itself.

When was this posted and is it future proof?

ZyyzxGaming submitter 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

i posted it earlier this month and kinda, thankfully if I need to I can get an i7 6700k and that will hold me for a long time and the 1070 is going to last me a good long time and if need be when the prices do come down I can SLI 2 of them and be golden.

I would like to know your opinion on the case is it good and have a lot of space?

ZyyzxGaming submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

I liked it a lot, lots of room inside and pretty good expansion. The back area allows for good cable management. My only gripe is the fans and the controller. Controller has only like 3 settings and the fans RGB arent very bright.
