I picked the i5 4690k for its really great performance in games and its "overclockability" if that's a word. The i5 4690k is perfect for any games. Most games today don't use more than 4c/4t, since I don't really do any kind of video editing or any rendering, I don't see why I would go with the i7. In my case, the i7 4790k is useless. I managed to push this cpu to 4.6 GHz with a voltage of 1.245v and it passed all the stability tests (OCCT,Intel BurnTest, prime95)
In cpu intensive games my cpu never go higher than 52 degrees (Like GTA V, cities skylines, Arma 3...) In most other games, it stays well below 45 degrees. Thanks to the Corsair h100i GTX
For the video card, I went amd this time. The **R9 390(( is the perfect card for 1080p. Its 8GB of GDDR5 will be usefull in the games to come. In my opinion the r9 390 is the best bang for the buck video card right now. (Not anymore with the 1070/1080 or the RX480 considering their price and their relative performance)
I had a little bit of trouble with the drivers when I upgraded from CCC, but after the the second Crimson update, everything was fine !
I plan to add a 250gb samsung 850 evo ssd in the next week, aswell as another stick of ram to complete this build!
Pros: - Great performance (runs any AAA games at ultra/high settings 1080p/1440p) - Great look - LED looks incredible !
Cons: - H100i GTX stock fans are noisy (I had to turn them to their minimum speed) - The led strips didn't stick properly and kept falling(I Krazyglued Them; I know what a stupid idea, but it worked !) - The psu could have been fully modular for the same price (bad listing) - The ketchup/Mustard cable (I don't care a lot)
