Description

This here is my second pc ever, it was time for a little update before going back to college so i put my old build for sale and was able to get just enough to buy the holy 1080ti, that lil guy is expensive af... but those fps tho !

I'm mainly going to use this pc for gaming and 3D modeling/rendering so the 1080ti with its 11gb and the 7700k are going to be pretty handy for that. You might ask why i went with the i7 instead of a 1700x/1800x since i'm doing 3D stuff, the answer is that the i7 was a lil bit cheaper and perform better in games, plus almost all my 3D renders are done via the GPU so that's why. To cool that lil heat machine i went with the h115i because it have good reviews plus it was a lot cheaper, but less sexy, than the x62 from NZXT. I used to have my OS on an HDD and god it was slow, so that's why the SSD was a priority to have this time. The 1080 ti was an impulsive decision XD, I was originally going to buy a 1070, but because of the cryptocurrency and the miners, the 1070 is a big no no at that price, so i changed my mind for a 1080, but.... why not aim for da big boi this time ! (i had a 970 before). For the mobo, I chose the Gigabyte z270 gaming 7 because i like the white accents on it, it's lookin pretty good inside the white s340 elite, plus it got a **** load of LED. The s340 elite was a no brainer cuz thats a case i've wanted to have since it was launch last year, imo it's one of the best looking case for just 120$, the cable management is not the best tho, but i was able to make something somewhat clean. For the RAM, i went with the Trident Z RGB..... for the same reason as everybody else.

I'm officially jealous. Nice build! Is the "Ragrets" thing a pun of some sort?

It's also probably a reference to the people who(hilariously) got a misspelled "No Regrets" tattoo.

Between 37-41 idle and between 65 - 85 full load (depand on the game), it is kinda hot so i might change the thermal paste
