Part Reviews


FAST and smooth. Temp range from 27 C to 46 C hovering around 34 most of the time.

CPU Cooler

Little large but knew that going in. Everything fit nice and everything is running cool.


Great MOBO for the price. Like the sli function but will get another card soon to utilize it.


Little overkill but works great.

Video Card

WOW, will be gaming in 4k in a few days to push it.


Great case. Plenty of room and slots. MOBO and heatsink fit perfect. Plenty of space for a liquid cooled system. As this is my first modern build I didn't want to venture into that yet.

Power Supply

Perfect and came with everything and plenty of extras.

Optical Drive

Haven't used it yet but this was unnecessary for todays media. But what the hell just get it she says.

Operating System

Overpriced for what it is....

Case Fan

Nice and quite and cool.

I have a very similar build to yours :) (i7 6700k, Z170X Gaming 5, Hyper 212x) Im deciding on the gtx 1060 vs 1070, Would the extra 200AUD for the 1070 be worth it?

$$ wasnt an issue with me so i went for the 2nd newest. clocking speeds were similar

How do you like the case? Is it quiet, or do the fans run loudly under a load?

I am trying to decide between your case or the Fractal Design Define S or R5 or a Phanteks Enthoo Pro.
