Description

So my friend wanted me to build him a a PC that could crush anything that he throws at it. The build process wasn't very hard, but the cable management is pretty bad, since this is my second build AND I AM ONLY 12 XD. Also for anyone wondering why the prices are so high, it's because i live in Vietnam. Deal with it. If you guys are wondering how i got the gtx 1070, for some reason, Vietnam's tech market has it available with other gtx 1080. But still the price is cut-throat.

Part Reviews

CPU

Ok so the story is: by the time he asked me to build this PC i was still noobie and didn't know how to install an aftermarket cooler. And then he was like " Hey, let's get an i7 " But, people in Vietnam only look at the numbers ( for example i3 is weaker than i5 ) so we thought that it was stronger than a 6600K too. Then when i gathered all the parts except the GPU i found out that an i7 is often used for video editing. Since my friend mostly games on this rig, it was a terrible idea. Eventually, i was like " na, let's just go with it"

Motherboard

Great board, works well with the "RGB" theme in my build.

Memory

Looks great, performs great as well

Storage

There wasn't much choice so i went with this and i'm satisfied. It also looks bad-a.ss

Storage

I got this accidently but it is great, except the fact that it's slower than the Seagate Barracuda 2tb.

Case

Great case but not much space behinh the motherboard tray.

Power Supply

Kinda good, but i would recommend other power supplies

Case Fan

Works great since my friend likes the color blue

Why would you pay that much for a 1070? It was almost as much of the 1080

You should probably read the description.

Read the description before criticizing it? Not a chance bud.

I did read it but there's no reason anyone should pay that much when you're only like $60 from getting an evga 1080

tamnhucanh submitter 2 Builds 2 points 34 months ago

Bro, the cheapest gtx 1080 here is $785.

CleverJimmy 2 Builds 0 points 34 months ago

Damn! That blows. There's not even one here in the US that's that expensive

Wow. It literally is RGB

Prices look like they're on par with the area I Except the GPU pricing... And I live in Texas... Where are people getting better prices? I need to move there... Still looks very nice for a build in that case. I like cable management and I dont know if I'd of done much better. Maybe if i had velcro tape...

Literally an RGB build, I guess. Nice build!

Also... does that Sniper Motherboard glow green? Thats awesome!

tamnhucanh submitter 2 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

Yes it glows green :D

would u recommend that 2TB 5400 WD blue for gaming? or should i stick to 7200rpm 1TB instead?

tamnhucanh submitter 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Depends, if you dont use that much storage, then go for the 1 tb, but tbh, hard drive speeds dont really make a difference. If they do then its really little ( like 3-6 secs on loading time) so just go for whichever one u need ;)
