Build

Swaz

by TheSuspect777

Description

To handle gaming, video editing, livestreaming and multi tasking.

Didn't turn out too bad. Never had to turn down gaming settings yet, render times been cut in half, and probably more, when compared to my previous build. Runs really quiet, looks decent, and all around does the job. Even temperatures are lower than I expected. If only I had taken the right hard drives...

Part Reviews

CPU

This chip isn't that bad. It's outdone itself in gaming and video editing. Just a bit lacking in the automatic boost. If you really want over 4Ghz, you'll have to do it yourself.

CPU Cooler

Got a 6700k under 70c during benchmarks and around 30c idle. Can't complain. Only issue is the assembly of this thing. This took about 15 - 20 minutes figuring out how to do this, not to mention not having an dedicated lga1151 section on in the manual. Can't say much about it's looks either. It's not great, but it's not an eyesore.

Thermal Compound

Can't say much. My cpu hasn't fried itself. So I'm happy, I guess.

Motherboard

Not a half bad motherboard. Looks really good with a black a white build, has more than enough Sata ports, didn't put up a fight during assembly and all around does well. If anything, an extra sata cable would be nice.

Memory

A couple of incidents of it not running at it's rated speed, but other than that, not bad.

Storage

Quick boot times, ability to read large files with ease, and looks great. No complaints.

Storage

Eh. Nothing really wrong with it.

Video Card

Far better than I expected. 300fps+ on Cs Go with maxed settings, runs perfectly well with a 500watt power supply, and looks pretty good aesthetically. Only issue being the inability to effectively overclock memory. A lot of crashes come there. Clock speed is fine, though.

Case

Pretty confusing to work with at first. The tool-less drive cages is a nice addition. A pretty small case, so it fits well on my desk. Just about fits a 212X, and even a 1070 from Evga. My only issue was cable management. There is not nearly enough space at the back to manage cables. But it's a mid tower, what did I expect? :P

Power Supply

No issues. Surprisingly handles a 1070 and a 6700k.

Monitor

Too many pros to list. My only complaints would be that once you select 144hz, going lower brings around glitches that I cannot explain.

Monitor

Eh. It's fine. Maybe a more flexible mount?

Keyboard

White is a bit off while configurating colours, but eh. It's still pretty good. Not to mention it's really easy to type, but equally easy to make spelling mistakes if you're not paying attention.

Mouse

Fits nicely for a palm grip. The software is a bit, eh. But the rest of the mouse is fine.

Headphones

Underrated and cheap earphones. Audio sounds perfectly fine for me.

6700K/HyperX/Krait/1070? Yeah I'd say "it gets the job done"

I have the same card, it never gets over 58 C, +100 clock +400 on memory, I get within a couple fps of a stock 1080 founders :)

Got great fans for overclocking. I just strained myself on the power supply, so I can't explore the world you're in lmao.

I'm planning on upgrading my build to the same GPU, CPU, and Mobo. Nice to know it's working great!
