Description

Going to try my hand at pc gaming, this is my first build so it's taking me a little longer than normal probably, I don't have my second zotac card yet, running a little light on cash, hope it all goes well, I know I'll need some info on how to get benchmark test numbers but that's still a few days away .I will try to get the purchase price on my build all from newegg,amazon, tiger direct I have been messing around with over clocking the cpu and gpu,having mixed results, still learning, slowly, had cpu at 5.2ghz Temps stayed under 59c benchmarked firestrike around 9600,but when playing for extended time it will lock up, haven't tweaked the gpu much ,don't want to mess with to much at one time, I also had to hold off on the 2nd gpu,price keeps getting higher, over $ 600.now so far happy with the results

you picked out some interesting parts for a first build, did you have anyone helping you with picking out parts or building it?

No I didn't, used the pc part picker with the compatibility filter,I did notice afterwards that there was a couple parts I could of done without

not bad for your first build then, know that you can always ask questions if you need any help with parts or want to know the why's about skipping parts

Okay, thanks, trying to figure out where I want to mount the radiator, water tube are not long enough for bottom mounting, more than likely top,

  • 58 months ago

Yeah, Top is the most ideal spot. If not then the front if you can fit it.

  • 58 months ago

based on your case, it will need to be mounted up top, just double check your fan placement so they are exhausting out the top

nice parts! +1 I have to say this because I still cannot understand why people upload multiple of the same picture of stuff that isn't really important. Yet they leave out the stuff we really want to see like....the finished product maybe! Just a thought!

Ok so by PCPP estimates this build is roughly $2,600 give or take a few bucks after rebates.

Oh, man...There's a lot you could do without in here...I don't think I've ever seen anyone buy a wired network adapter for a consumer build before.

Still, it looks like a nice build and I hope it's enjoyable.

Your cost/performance ratio is up for speculation. IMO an OC i5-5960k would have been more efficient in performance and cost esp for gaming. not a fan of zotac from personal experience and i question getting a wired AND wireless network card PLUS a sound card AND SLI. i'm not even sure that will all fit on your MOBO . also hope you have a tri- or 2-4k monitor to truly rationalize getting sli.

Of course if you had extra money to blow then w/e. i'm just pretty sure you coulda blown the same amount on even better components.

over all not Bad, just not efficient.

Already bought, I read that the 9590 ran with no problems at 5.1ghz,
