Description

Lets see here. This is my second time ive built a computer, well actually my first time doing it by myself first time I had help with a friend cause I was nervous and didnt know which wires went where and where to plug things into lol. I first built this computer on labor day weekend and last month (November 2016) outta no where I just wanted to switch my color theme up and go with something different. Most of the parts I just used from my previous build but did buy and upgrade some parts. I decided to buy the Phanteks Evolve TG Black Satin Edition first cause after I laid eyes on this I just couldnt go without it. This case is absolutely beautiful inside and out!

The second part I purchased was the memory. I just couldnt pass up the Dominator Platinums. They are really nice and look good in my system. I am eventually going to plasti dip them either black or white I havent decided yet on which color I should go with.

The third part I purchased was Cable Mod extensions. The black and white extensions and as you can see they look good in my system but im not totally sold on them yet. I have seen several other cable extensions from other companies I may try out. These are very thin cables which are alright but I think the thinker cables would look even better in my system.

The fourth thing I bought new was CPU Cooler. I previously had the corsair H105, sold it on ebay and ended up buying this. I love the way it looks and couldn't go wrong with the white radiator and the white and black cpu block.

The fifth I purchased was 6 Corsair 120mm fans. 3 fans are the air flow quiet edition and 3 others are the static pressure PWM quiet editions. They are nice and quiet even running at full speed all the time.

Sixth and final purchase I made was none other than the Asus Sabertooth Z170 S motherboard. The pictures just does not do its justice with this beauty. It looks extremely well in my case and matches everything I have in my case.

The build didnt go as smooth as I hoped it would at the beginning, i mean building it was easy it was just turning it on, I kept running into cpu fan error and I know it was hooked up right so i rechecked it and of course I had it hooked up right. I was beginning to think it was cause I didnt uninstall the previous mobo drivers or add ons but I booted it up and finally got the the main screen and was able to delete the old mobo drivers and settings. I thought long and hard to do a clean install of windows but im not totally sure how to do it even though I have watched videos its just one of those things im nervous to do it by myself dont want to screw anything up ya know? lol Other than that this build went pretty well considering all the other things I told you about. There is just one thing I want to say when your're NWO your're NWO 4 LIFE!!!! lmao. I like to have a good time and joke around but I hope you enjoy this build as much as I have.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

This cpu cooler..... what can I say? I just cant explain how freaking awesome this cpu cooler is. It looks amazing and that Rad? wow all white!!! Its extremely quiet and love the pulse on the block kinda reminds me of Iron man's heart

Motherboard

This mobo what can I say about it? Its absolutely beautiful. The pictures just dont do its justice with this bad boy. It looks fantastic and does everything you need it to do in a mobo!!!

Memory

Looks great in my white and black theme. Love it cause you can customize it. You can take the bracket off and spray paint it or even exchange them out to have some lights in it from corsair

Case

Originally had corsair 750D airflow edition case then I stumbled across this sexy case and I just couldnt stop thinking about all the sexiness and could not pass up. It went on sale around black friday and i could not pass it up so i snagged one up and I have not been disappointed!!

Monitor

Looks amazing and Im Samsung fanboy cause of the great tvs they have. So i wanted to try out one of their monitors. The picture is fantastic but I would have rated it with more stars I just wished it was more than 60Hz and turning the screen off can be a pain in the rear at times, especially if you sit kinda far from it and have to reach over and actually get outta your chair to reach the darn thing.
