Description

I built this pc because I was in severe need of a new one. I am upgrading from a extremely old graphics card, that had a hard time running League of legends.

After picking out this motherboard, the black and white theme seemed nice and was easy to keep with.

I have yet to do any overclocking, and don't plan on doing any extreme overclocking either.

The couple days I have played around with it in between working have been amazing, it has crushed every game I have tried to play on it.

Part Reviews

CPU

Just doing gaming, so nothing more than this was needed

CPU Cooler

Don't plan on doing any crazy overclocking, so just needed something to get the job done, plus black and white

Motherboard

Wanted to go with a nice black and white build, and it is a very solid board

Storage

Never had an ssd before, it is crazy fast

Video Card

Such a big improvement over my last gpu. It destroys everything I play, but I am sure you all know this

Case

This case looked so nice, and I love that side window it is so easy to open and close and looks great. I had some trouble finding a good way for the cables to get to the bottom of the board, but I am sure there is a better way to route them than what I did.

Power Supply

I was going to get a lower wattage, but it was never in stock. Then this had a mail in rebate and only cost $10 more for an extra 100 watts. Has tons of cables and the black sleeving is really nice

That 1080 will take a fat **** on League. You could run it at 4K easy

bunionboy submitter 1 Build 2 points 7 months ago

That is what I am wanting, along with any other game I would like to play :)

This is really your first build? I hope i do mine neat like this

bunionboy submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Yeah it really is my first one. I was so intimidated by the cable management, but seriously if I can make it look this decent literally anyone can make it look good too hahaha. I just wish I spent more time in the beginning planning where I want my cables to go.

Yeah i have 5 fans so im extremely nervous

Reprisalgaming 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

How clear is connecting the fans and battery to the motherboard etc?

bunionboy submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

It is really simple, everything is labelled really well on the board. And the manual always comes in handy too hahahaha

Great build, building something pretty similar! I think I read that some people had issues with hard drive cages when using PSU's longer than 180mm (according to EVGA the 750 G2 is 180mm). Did you have any trouble with it?

bunionboy submitter 1 Build 2 points 6 months ago

Yeah, with this case I had to slide the hard drive cage over a little bit. The wires weren't really fitting with the cage so close to the psu, but it was simple to move it over and out of the way.

This is practically begging for LEDs. Great build here otherwise.
