Description

This is a PC I planned together with my friend. For his purposes it was to be suitable for gaming and editing as he is an arts and design student.

Most important to him was future-proofing and longevity. I'm not sure if we met those requirements, but it's close enough.

PC boots in 20 seconds or less and has shown stability OC'ed at 4.3Ghz.

The Phanteks case is dead quiet, the only time it become noticeable was when we were stress testing the CPU. Temperatures were between 30-68 C but we expect those to drop as the Arctic Silver 5 cures.

Personally, I prefer keyboards without audible feedback but he seems happy with the blue switches.

Oh yeah, we were on a budget.

Could you tell me what LED strips were used here? They look great, and although it's achievable with other RGB LED strips, I absolutely love the shade of blue in picture 8.

One and two meter lengths, some Phanteks cases have the built-in toggle switch and cabling.

I think it'll only work properly with Phanteks cases? Maybe.

Thank you sir, and I'm getting this very case (the Phanteks p400) so it's all fine if it only works with them.

Thanks again.

220$ CPU, 160$ MoBo, 24$ Cooler. I'd Like to see a PH-TC12DX or PH-TC14S in there. And the 4GB version of the GTX 960.

I agree, unfortunately we overlooked the 4GB version. The rest was limited due to our selection here in Canada.

That's very unfortunate. : /

Yeah, Phanteks makes some amazing cases. I'll be upgrading my own case to Phanteks eventually.
