Extreme 1060 Intel Build

by Hulkerz

Description

I use this for gaming and it's working really well. The only problem is my monitor and it sucks. I bought the desk and chair from walmart, you can get 1 yourself too its cheap.

OK so i bought a 100 bucks monitor. Its an HP 21.5 inches

Btw ill post more pics as soon as I place LED lighting inside the case. Color Blue. And ive ordered a blue SANES headset to match with it.

Added Razer set and LED

Part Reviews

CPU

If you are only gaming. Use this, it's very fast and cheap. Otherwise, buy the i7 6th generation if youre unto Video Rendering, etc.

Motherboard

Use only 1 wifi antenna. And dont punch the hole in the I/o shield. 1 antenna is enough unfortunately I broke the other one

Memory

You only need 2133, if you go to 2400+ you need to upgrade your motherboard to something like z170 or something

Storage

This is the best SSD i ever had. Although i had to disable the Magician application because its so annoying

Storage

It's good to pair this with an SSD and this is where you will be placing your large files. It's not very loud.

Video Card

The fans are stopping when not in use. Very nice feature. The only con of this card is it doesnt support SLI

Case

Very efficient case although i wish i had 1 more Slot so i can buy the NZXT Sleeved LED snd place the controller there. Very nice stock fans and the cable management will be easy becauase of the holes. And you can screw any hard drve at the left side panel so you can hide it

Power Supply

You should get a semi modular so you dont get bad cable management

Hmm I havent checked yet. How do i check, what app?

I have a near identical build with the same cpu and gpu. With Ark:Survival Evolved i am seeing 30-35 fps with maxed settings and medium fov. All other games I have tried are well into the 100s like BioShock Infinite. This is all at 1080. Doom even runs around 100 fps. Sometimes dipping into the 80's.

Did you get wifi working on your mobo?

Hulkerz submitter 1 Build 1 point 24 months ago

Yes but i accidentally broke the Cable. And i researched btw, you only need 1 Antenna and connect it to the MAIN port

You should fix your parts list. Your GPU that you used is a PNY GTX 1060 not the one from MSI

How are your temperatures since the gpu is close to the psu?
