Description

First build that I might have dumped way too much money into, but I think it was worth it. Built this to start playing games on PC instead of console with Destiny 2 being my first game (was that ever a let down). Looking forward to more high end gaming as this PC can definitely handle it.

Overclocked CPU - 4.6 GHz stable

Overclocked RAM - 3200 MHz

Overclocked GPU - Stock overclock program (Will play with this more later when I get a game worth playing that needs it).

Updated requested pictures without side panel on.

Very sexy looking build. +1 The 1070 is kinda overkill for a 1080p 60hz monitor though, a 1060 6gb would have saved you money. More pictures would be very appreciated! :(

Bang for buck reviews had the 1070 above the 1060 by quite a bit in certain benchmarks. I just wanted to get a nice build with a bit of future proofing while I had the money to do so. I plan on upgrading monitors once I get the space for a bigger desk.

Im pretty sure he's playing Destiny 2 on the 31.5" 1440p monitor and not on the 24" 1080p monitor. Read the whole spec sheet and see the pictures first before you comment lol

Well you can’t be sure he never specifys so Skultrix could be right about him playing on the 24” also you could be right. Think before you try and make someone look stupid. Ok bud?

Yeah I know, in my opinion he was trying to make the guy look stupid. So I said he may not be right.

Well, like I stated "look at the pictures", common sense lets you know what monitor he is using. Unless you lack that as well.

Such small mouse space! Do you game? Great build none the less

Yes I do game with it. Destiny 2, Fortnite, and League at the moment. I realize it is overkill for 2 of those, but I am waiting on a friend to build his PC to get more games that we can play together.

What made you go with a core i5 7600k, where u can get better performance for less with going with a coffee lake chip such as an i3-8350K ?

I liked the reviews off of the i5 and picked it up for just under $200. Personally I wanted to go with the 8700K, but I already had this mobo and it does not support. I suppose I could have done a bit more research into other chips.

When I get a desk that has room, I will sell both monitors that I have for 2-3 144hz monitors. Just felt like going with this size for now and no money to afford this size at 144hz at time of build.

Any chance of the X52 being rotated upright, so the logo is too? I don't think you would have RAM clearance issues. Was that just a mistake in building?

  • 21 months ago

The clearance was too tight and I didn't like where the USB and Pump cables position at the top. I realize that the upside down logo is a bit off. Wish I could change it.

OK, cool. I think you can disable the logo led's in the CAM software... Not sure, but from watching software reviews I believe you can.

Was there enough room for the 298mm graphics card and the 30mm wide Rad positioned at the front?

  • 21 months ago

Yes there was.

Nice build bro. I have one question tho. Does the GPU sag a lot?

  • 21 months ago
  • 1 point

No it does not. It fits very snug in the PCIE x16 slot and just the standard two screw mount to the frame is sufficient. If it does start to sag in the future, a support bracket is fairly inexpensive and easy to install.

I have a question, how close is the radiator to hitting the memory? It's just that Fractal Designs website says that you can't have memory higher than 40mm for a top radiator, but you've gone against it, so I think Fractal Design is wrong on their website (some people said that you can have a 280mm on the top aswell)

Sorry that I have not been on the website for a long time. To answer your question, it is a very tight fit and the two are touching, however there has not been any issues with pressure trying to force the ram down.

To answer your second question, it is a very tight fit and the two are touching, however there has not been any issues with pressure trying to force the ram down.

To answer your first question about deleted comments, I have no idea what might have been there before. They were not deleted by me.
