Description

This is the first build I've ever put together, so I decided to build a PC that will last for a few years to come.

I did quite a bit of research on parts and for the most part Amazon was the cheapest, thanks to my 5% student discount. The total of my build came to just over £600, although the the storage drives came cross from my previous computer.

I'm currently waiting on my GTX 1070 Zotac Amp Extreme to arrive, then I'll be able to get back in to gaming. I play a variety of games, although I predominantly play triple A titles as I like to make the most of the hardware. I have a G-Sync 1080p monitor, and a 4K TV in the living room, so none of the horsepower goes to waste.

You'll have to excuse the quality of the pictures as my phone camera isn't great, and the lighting wasn't up to much either lol.

Edit: My GTX 1070 Zotac Amp Extreme arrived today, doesn't run hotter than 64c under load and was clocked at 2ghz out of the box.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Mechanics told me that the V8 was noisy, do you recommend it anyways?

Hi,

It doesn't bother me in the slightest, even at 4.5/4.6 ghz, it's something I barely notice.

Nice build. We all waiting on 10 series to arrive. :)

Quick question or two. Whats your opinion on the case? having no filter on the psu, do you see that as a problem? Why did you choose such a high watt psu?

Hi Zehkari,

The lack of a PSU filter hasn't been an issue at all. In the four months I haven't once needed to clean the PSU chamber, the front filter gets dusty very quickly though.

I went for the 850 watt version as it was cheaper than the 750 watt version, and gives plenty of head room for overclocking etc. Also the fact that it comes with a 10 year warranty meant it was a no-brainer for me.
