Hey guys! This PC is mostly for gaming and some video editing. I play lots of different kind of games and so far my new build has been great for me. I will now explain why I chose some parts. I know I could've saved money in some places but I chose these parts for their great looks without degrading the performance.
CPU : I chose this because it seemed to be the mainstream 1151 gaming CPU! I am at 4.6 GHz at 1.31 and it runs at 22 c idle!
CPU Cooler : I love the all in one water cooler design. It is simple and works great. Maybe in the future I will make this build into a full custom loop. sighs maybe
Motherboard : I understand, this motherboard is super expensive. I love the bells and whistles it has. It has been a great motherboard for me and I like the RGB :)
SSD : I got this SSD for 160$ on sale at BestBuy
HDD : Just a fast storage place for all my games.
GTX 1080 : I guess I got really lucky with this being in stock for me. I just searched it on amazon and boom! It was in stock for $679.99 I guess they are usually very hard to get.
Case : The moment I saw this case I knew I needed it! I had to wait 1-2 weeks for it so I played on a test bench while I waited. It is an amazing case with exceptional build quality.
PSU : Since the PSU is visible from the front panel on the case I got this. It looks great and fits the build, + the no fan spin mode is great and keeps things quiet.
OS : I have never had trouble with Windows 10 so I picked it up.
Case Fans : I got these black fractal design fans out of a leap of faith. They looked amazing and had great reviews. I am very glad I got them and would for sure recommend them to anyone who is upgrading to custom fans.
Monitor : I have had this 144Hz 1080p monitor forever and I'm gonna be picking up a 4K monitor soon! I play on a 4K TV in the living room and oh boy... It is freakin great!
Keyboard : Great keyboard for gaming. It's quiet and RGB :D
Mouse : Ever since trying out Zowie at a gaming convention I could not use anything else. Great mouse with wonderful build quality.
Headset : I got this headset for a few reasons. It has a great mic, as well as the fact I can mute the mic by simply pushing it up. This headset also has great sound quality.
Pop-Tarts : Who doesn't like them?
Custom Cables : They look wonderful! Plus I got them $40 off.
Hue+ : I know there are cheaper RGB PC kits, I chose these because of the easy to use software. They work great and make a good addition to any PC.
RAM : I have had this RAM for a while now so I just re-used it. Maybe in the future I will get some Corsair White LED Ram!
Benchmark scores : 3DMark Firestrike 1.1 , I got 3170 on Heaven 4.0 Ultra everything!
If you want me to benchmark anything just ask and I will upload scores.
Additional info : Since these pictures. I removed the top LED strip in the front part of the case and moved it behind the 3 fans on top. It looks great and shines all on the motherboard! Thanks for reading, if you have any questions feel free to ask! <3 #PCMasterRace
