This is my new build. I'm going to use it mostly for video rendering / editing in Ae and Pr.
I was trying to build avery powerfull and almost silent computer in an Mitx case.
I'm also going to play some games as well, SC2, Skyrim and The Witcher 3 are the games i already have.
I like the speed of the Core I7 6700k so far. I'm planning to OC but not know, i want to take my time and do it well.
I buy most of the parts at newegg. I only buy the Case at Amazon because i have Amazon Prime.
My thoughts about the parts.
- Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core.
It's very fast. I used to have an Phenom II x6 1055T OC to 3.8 Ghz. This Core I7 "feels" a lot faster. And the whole system is very efficient. I used to use almost 200 watt with my last built, now i have 50 - 60 W idle and 150 W under full load.
- Corsair H115i 104.7 CFM Liquid
I want to have water cooling, because i read a lot of benchmark and almost all says the WC is better. IMO is not. At least the H115i is very loud, even in silent profile and whiting a sound dampering case.
I don't know what to do. I'm thinking reusing the 212 EVO of my last build, or buy better fans. Or tweak the UEFI in order to supply less power to the CPU fans. But i think the H115i power the fans trought the sata cable. But anyway, i'm to try and update any news.
- EVGA Z170 Stinger Mini ITX LGA1151
Best MB for the price. My other option was the Asrock, that one have Wifi / BT and all the whystles and bells. But cost 175 or more. And because i already have an USB wifi card, and don't need / care about the BT, i choose the EVGA.
- G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB)
Fast, plenty and cheap too.
- Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" SSD
Very fast SSD. I boot to windows in no time (about 5 seconds)
- Western Digital BLACK SERIES 3TB 3.5"
Very fast HDD. But it's too loud.
- EVGA GeForce GTX 960 2GB FTW ACX 2.0+
As far as i know, this is the best card for the money if you play at 1080p.
- Fractal Design Define Nano S Mini ITX
I really want an small case. Thats looks sober. This one is the best. Excelent cable managment and cooling options. But i feel it is very delicated. Even when you can see it's good quality.
- EVGA 550W ATX12V / EPS12V
Since i'm using 200 W at most (150 W playing games) i have planty power with this one. It's modular and have black cables. Silent.
I'm planing to OC to 4.8 but i'm concerned about the noise. I will post any news.
