Description

i use this build for gaming at 1080p which this handles like a boss i know that i shouldnt have gone with the water cooler because my cpu isnt overclockable i mostly did it for the looks(I tried my best to stick with the red and black build which I think I accomplished because it looks very cool) . I spent all summer saving up for this build and everything was pretty easy to put together and for this being my first build I was pretty happy to turn it on and see that it works :) I love comments and feedback thanks!!! P.S. im planning on upgrading the ram and maybe more storage

Thanks!

Good job, like the build. Small improvements could be made but like your first build. Very cost effective for a gaming computer.

Good job on the build. What are some benchmarks of this build? Also on that note, why didn't you go with the i3 skylake build for about the same performance in SOME GAMES.

GamerMaximus submitter 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

i went with the i5 because my friend recommended it for me. And i am thinking of adding some benchmarks

Looks good. The 1060 looks like like the card to get for 1080p gaming.

Thumbs up.

GamerMaximus submitter 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

I like the 1060 a lot it is really good so far i have been playing light games like csgo tf2 and cod and it performs great!

Did you have to buy those red wires separately or did they come with something? Probably a stupid question.

GamerMaximus submitter 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

i bought them off of amazon for like 13 dollars each, I also bought the LED strip off of amazon. The cables are the silverstone cable extensions and the LED is the bitfenix alchemy LEDS

do the 2 GPU fans spin together at 60c? or only 1

GamerMaximus submitter 1 Build 1 point 24 months ago

The GPU fans do not spin until the card has reached 60 degrees, At 60 Degrees both fans will start spinning

MARCOzid 1 point 24 months ago

GamerMaximus submitter 1 Build 1 point 23 months ago
