Description

This build went very smooth. She was put together around an hour to hour and a half. This will be our homes everyday computer, but will also be used for games. Currently playing Wildlands (Shout out | Free game with the 1070). The case has great cable managment, but is actually the EVGA DG-85 (was not on the list). My only problem with the case right now is that I do not know how to toggle between display modes on the front. Google hasn't been helping me that much..but its the internet I am sure its out there. Stock CPU cooler for now. Going to go closed system water cooled, but will wait until I find a really good deal. (Any suggestions let me know | LGA 1151)

Let me know any thoughts or comments. The wife walked in she said VR is in this order:

She gets a vinyl machine We buy a house I get VR

Here's to next year!

Motherboard

Love this motherboard! Built in WiFi and Bluetooth is super nice.

Storage

Boots really quick. My current rig boots in 15 seconds. Really good for the price and size.

Video Card

I haven't tested it to its max yet, but I know she'll handle it!

Case

This tower is very big so be prepared!

If your looking for houses what better way then in vr. I'm sure there's an app/game for it. Just say you'll find it AFTER you buy one.

Stock cooler is brutal haha, need to upgrade that asap. Seeing an unlocked processor paired with a garbage cooler makes my heart melt. Good deals are hard to come by on CPU coolers, so you might just have to buy one for full price.

I use the Corsair H105 for my cpu cooler. It's the same socket. Great 240mm rad.

Yeah I have been looking at the EVGA CLC 280...Maybe try to keep the theme of LED EVGA.
