Description

After 3 long months of debating what I wanted in a machine.. I FINALLY DID IT, this is also my first custom built PC I did myself! Easier than I thought... I got everything for around 800 dollars, not 1152.39. Microcenter had a deal with the I5-6600k, Mobo, and ram, all for $410. Then Picked up the GPU for only 220 on craigslist which was only used a few times. I also picked up the water cooler for about 50 bucks at frys after rebate... The rest of the Items, I got at least 10 dollars off original prices I believe. For $800, I am quite satisfied!

I will also be adding the Logisys LED's when they arrive... Should be coming in tomorrow! I know.. the cable management will be fixed after the LEDS are installed! Thanks for looking.

UPDATE: Just installed my LEDS and my lord it's a beauty..

On your CPU or graphics? Afterburner, so graphics, yes?

Yes my GPU, I actually just googled the problem, turns out Chrome uses Hardware Acceleration.. Turned it off and no more spikes! Thanks tho. :))

Nice! Actually that's not a bad piece of info to know. So thanks for that! lol. But I'd say that if it's not sitting at that high a speed for very long that it's probably not terrible if you have the Hardware Acceleration on - especially if your system can handle it. Doesn't seem like a super taxing feature. Just my thought though :)

it's actually pretty good, a very underrated cooler! so glad I chose this over corsair because they are about 30-40 dollars more

New here so this may be trivial, however would this be a good setup for streaming/video editing as well as gaming. Does this support multiple monitor output?

I'm pretty sure you you can do everything you just listed, but I am still new to this system so don't take my word just yet!

Awesome man, and what I did for reference was, search the type of games I was interested in, with the computer specs I wanted..(Ex: Bf4 PC, Intel i5 6600k, msi gtx 970, 16g ram) and saw what other people were getting on their average FPS. I am quite satisfied myself! :)) Good luck and have fun bro!
