Description

First system build and it went really smoothly, everything plugged in place and working from the first try (except the ssds that I forgot to plug in).

Note that prices are in cad, with taxes and shipping it went up to 1840$, and I regret nothing. I haven't received the led strip, so I'll be posting other pictures when I receive them.

Part Reviews

CPU

Perfect runs like a champ at 4,2GHz on the hyper 212 evo and could go higher, I just don't need that much extra speed

CPU Cooler

Can be noisy from time to time and is really bulky, check your clearance for the heat sink height

Motherboard

Super cheap, works good, I actually read the manual for setting up RAID and there was detailed steps, other than that, there's only 2 Sata cables and one of them is 90 degrees, caused a problem with my case I had to force one in.

Memory

Great ram, works and is better than 99% of the other rams, according to a passmark performance test. And was cheap and sexy

Storage

For the price I got them for, they are surprisingly good. (Even if refurbished) smart intel software says they are in good condition and they have astonishing speeds in RAID 0 (800mb/s)

Video Card

This card is great, no need to overclock as of yet for 1080p, has rgb (white is blue purplish :( ) and is super silent, 70C at full load, it was literally (not really) laughing at furmark

Case

This case is absolutely stunning, minimalist yet allowing for great cable management. It was a breeze to work in it

Power Supply

Don't cheap out on your psu guys, I was p*ssed that I could've got the 650 for the same price a couple minutes earlier but hey, it still works with what I've trown at it (6600k and 1070), and the most important thing for me is completely black cables. No need to pay for custom sleeves cables and you don't get a ketchup and mustard theme. Win win

Monitor

Even if it was refurbished, there is one dead pixel and I couldn't find for ten minutes (in the corner and very subtle), IPS panel is great and that sweet 27". For those wondering, pixel density isn't a huge issue for me and I'm sitting 2-3 feet from the screen

SamP45 submitter 1 Build 2 points 17 months ago

Hell yeah it is, it's very Clicky but once you go mechanical you never go back

That is one ugly beast! jk

i am beginning to think the Yeti is not mythical at all. I have seen like 3 on this website alone! All wise cracks aside that Inwin is like a picture frame and just as sharp looking. Really minimalistic, state of the art looking.

What's more state-of-the-art is your profile pic.

SamP45 submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

what do u think of this monitor input lag??

i mean while gaming,when u move the mouse DOES the screed move at the same time?

SamP45 submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

Yup, I absolutely dont notice the input lag, but if you look close enough you will see the pixels
