EDIT This Build has been disassembled and some parts have been sold to build my next iteration of this machine inside of a desk including a 1070
Hello My name is Mitz and I am currently living in Australia. I am 14 and this PC will generally be used for gaming and nothing else. Currently My ISP is doing some grout work around my house and so they have supplied me with a personal hot-spot device, this is the reason for the Tp link wireless adapter which is completely temporary. This all started in the end of 2014 as I had set myself the goal as to get off of this 2009 Dell and get myself a gaming PC. It all started with an A8-5600k and the same R9 280 that is still in here now, progressively I began to receive even more money and then i decided to go skylake with a 6600k and a Z170 Board, but performance was generally base around my Graphics Card. I had feared that if i upgrade my graphics before my measly A8 5600k then i would bottleneck it but if I upgrade my Cpu the same thing would happen to my CPU. After becoming addicted to J2Cent's I have been dying to make a Hardline watercooled system and I know I am sacrificing performance by doing so but to me i honestly don't care, the aesthetic makes it up to me.Currently I am waiting for Pascal to come out as i plan on buying 2 of their cards and adding them to my Loop.
I5 6600k this CPU has been great for what it is worth and i got it with a free mug and T-shirt so that i felt was worth it
Asus Z170 AR this Mobo is basic Z170 board with everything you could need except the lack of some display ports which honestly shouldn't matter to you as it is directed at people who will be using GPU's
Kingston HyperX Fury 8GB (2x4) Standard 8GB kit from Kingston, I plan on getting two more when I have the money
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB This could use some improvement as i would like to get an SSD in the near future
XFX R9 280 DD Black Edition this is one of the only parts that has been with me the entire trip down making a computer and it has satisfied me with its performance per dollar
Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Acrylic this case is great, it has an Complete Acrylic side panel that I am looking for, it shows my entire build, and has standard grommets that were lacking in my past cases
Corsair SV550 Chosen out of budget reasons, I haven't seen the reason to change, until recently and I'm planning on going with a 650W or higher that is modular with a 80+silver rating atleast
Let me tell you thanks for reading up to this point, This has been a big journey, watercooling is tough, but when your using PETG its even harder. I started off fine, bent my first tube perfect, then everything went wrong, my runs were too long and I was running out of tube, bubbling and cracked tube were everywhere and this led to another hour trip down to PCCG to go pick up 2 more meters of tubing. even with this, the filling wasn't fun either, once i had filled, i had layed out my paper towel and my mum had used some of the paper towel that went into my pc to clean the floor, then placing it back in, this led to us having to drain the loop only to find out what had happend, later when my friend came over he accidentally turned the valve opening the drain and letting out atleast 200ml of coolant and almost killing my pc, lucky the pump as i stopped the drain ran the fluid so fast that it just fell onto the carpet.
Thanks for reading
