+ Total (United Kingdom):
Hey everyone and thanks for taking the time to check out my PC! This is a build that I researched for quite a while before deciding on what parts I would use. I wanted to play all current games and some games to come (especially GTA V!) on high settings. Being a console user and playing games on the PC was an amazing experience. The smoothness of 60+ frames is mind blowing! I did have some hard times being a new builder though such as being stuck on mounting the CPU cooler for 2 hours (no joke and I honestly thought I was making a big mistake when lowering that metal arm that secures the CPU!). It was really complicated but thanks to the very informative instructions by Cooler Master I was able to finish everything by the end of the day. The LEDs took quite long to setup but made everything look good especially in the dark.
I already had a copy of Windows on a USB beforehand so I installed it in less than 7 minutes thanks to the SSD speeds. I tried some old games that I had in my steam library like Modern Warfare 2, which I could only play at the lowest settings possible on my integrated laptop graphics. Turning up everything to maximum and seeing the result felt great! The game is quite old but the graphics card allowed me to play it at more than 300 frames a second! Using SpeedFan I found my idle CPU temp at 33 degrees celcius and the GPU at 27 degrees celcius. At load the CPU goes to about 45 degrees celcius and the GPU to about 57 degrees celcius. Really looking forward to buying and playing the newest games on this. If need be, I can add another one of this awesome graphics card and 5 more drives, as well as add 2 more ram modules. Thanks again for checking it out and have a nice day!
