Build

First High End Gaming Pc (Igneous)

by SpartyTech

Description

Code Name Igneous (For the red and orange magma like colour theme): This is my new £2200 (at the time of building) gaming computer which pushes all games ive tried so far at max settings 60fps plus which includes rainbow six seige, subnautica and fallout 4. Temps are amazing and nothing ever gets too hot. Never aboe 30 degrees on idle and never above 70 on full load gaming.

Using 16gb 2x8 sticks of ram, 500gb ssd, 2tb hdd and an msi gtx 1080 gaming x and i7 8700k this computer is a beast!

Im extremely happy how this build turned out as i was gaming on a crappy hp laptop before. I apoligze for poor quality images but the light from my windows in my room shines directly onto the computer which for the case having tempered glass side panel and the cooler being reflective doesent work very well. Have moved the pc now so pictures are much better.

Updated pictures as i have moved my setup around with new desk into a better lighting area darker but less reflection and also computer is still running great a few months on :)

Part Reviews

An amazing cpu with fast speed and great overclocking compatibility

Keeping my cpu icy cold on full load :)

Build went great but had to wait a week for a cmos jumper cap as the motherboard came incorrectly setup and need to be restarted as nothing booted up on screen. But after using cmos it was fine and its a great motherboard :)

Memory

Obviousky being ram it was extremely easy to install and is super fast

Great installation just need to fix it as it isn't working right now but its not hard to fix

Simple and efficient storing all my games

Video Card

Looks beautiful inside the case and fans don't spin unless a certain temperature is reached

Beautiful tempered glass side panel showing off my pc parts :)
