Description

My latest gaming build. Built it a little while back but just getting around to making a profile for it. The i5-7600k at the time a great choice for price to performance. Very surprised how well the Corsair H75 works considering its just a 120mm radiator. The MSI Armor 1080 is a pretty solid card but the fans only spool out to 2300rpm to keep the noise down. So, its quiet but make sure you have proper airflow. Also, you're going to want to order a support bracket (most likely anyway) because it is heavy, I still need one. Yeah, and order a backplate while you're at it.The Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 5 is a great little case for the price. Easy to build and excellent cable management.

Update: Added another SSD and a support bracket. Moved some cables around and took a few new pics.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great gaming CPU. Currently OC'd to 4.5ghz, haven't really had any reason to push it further. Maybe down the road.

CPU Cooler

Very impressive for such as small AIO.

Motherboard

Got a good price on it. Really like the black and white stripes. Not a fan of MSI bios.

Memory

Picked these up before prices went through the roof. They work well and its nice to be able to play with the color settings.

Storage

Thought it was a decent price and a good size drive to put the operating system on.

Storage

Not the best ssd but its fairly inexpensive. Still like to pick up another for a RAID setup. UPDATE: picked up another SSD.

Video Card

Pros: Its a 1080. I hate to be cliché but its a beast. Runs quiet and the color scheme is pretty classy.

Cons: Slow fan RPM. No back plate.

Case

Great for beginners or anyone on a budget. If the side was tempered glass instead of plastic it'd be a five star case.

Power Supply

PSUs never get any love but they should. Energy efficient and fully modular and I picked it up for a good price. Excellent.

Case Fan

Unnecessary bling. I'm still fascinated by LED lighting and digital watches. I may need help.

DUUUUUDE! Where'd you get that thing on top of the graphics card?!?!?! Also, I think I smell a featured build! Nice work!

V1 Tech, they make custom back plates, support brackets and a bunch of other cool stuff.

how are the temps on gpu? im have same case but m unable to decide which gpu to buy :(

The case actually has pretty good airflow. The gpu I picked probably isn't the best due to the fan speed but that said gaming its generally in the 68-72c range. What gpu are you considering?
