Description

first time build took me 6 hours. going for an overkill on CPU cooler since im just gonna sell the processor after 2 months to get an unlocked one. since my build isn't finished i will keep the wiring to be like that and buy a modded SATA cables and GPU 6+2 pinPCIe going for a black and red build to match ROG color. CORSAIR h100i v2 is a RECERTIFIED REFURBISHED by CORSAIR and has 1YEAR WARRANTY so im cool with it. had to change the storage. i have the Samsung MZ-7PC1280 for my boot drive cost me $45 for a used one.,.

is it just me or are asus boards extremely sexy?

i think the list is wrong, the correct drive is this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/zk7CmG/seagate-firecuda-2tb-25-5400rpm-internal-hard-drive-st2000lx001

pilijong submitter 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

yea its freaking sexy . i would love to see my nxt update on my rig. changing my cable paint to black and red and the screws to red.

VinnyPlaysGames 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

black/red cables would look so good in this system.

GTXguy6234EV 2 points 8 months ago

Is that an H100i or an H115i?

pilijong submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

H100i v2 recertified so its just 77.99 something

Nice looking build, how's that 8400 working out for you with the GTX 1070? I'm putting together my first build too, trying to decide between the 8400 and 8600k

pilijong submitter 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

Im not having a problem on 8400s FPS and the temps are pretty low on my build despite having a high ambient temp of 90-100F+ due to weather in san diego ca. And also i was gonna buy an 8600k but markets are out of stock so the only choice is to buy nonk-K i5.

I was gonna ask this too, good think I read your comment. Now I'm just more excited to get my hands on the 8400!!

Is that really a 3,5" hdd on the backside? Not a 2,5" ?

It's an SSHD, so it's a bit thinner.

pilijong submitter 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

i forgot to change the part yes. its a 2.5

vinny7847 1 point 7 months ago

Splendid build! say, can the motherboard change colors? or is it only read LED?

pilijong submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

yes it does.

DJBruno559 1 point 7 months ago

Dude u literally have the same build as me hahah accept diff case and i have tge 1080 strix. Thats crazy. How does it perform while gaming?

pilijong submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

I play pubg with ultra texture anti aliasing and everything low 60 to 144 since pubg isnt optimized high fps when im inside the house. Outside depends on many buildings 60-90. With GPU TEMP 66-68 MAX. CPU 35-40 MAX. ALL AREE UNDERLOAD

ahhh negative air pressure

pilijong submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

How. Teach me since this is my first time building a PC.

Possn 1 point 7 months ago

If you have more fans exhausting than intaking, it creates negative air pressure. I don't want to explain the whole thing since I'm gonna do it horribly, so watch this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8EN3K-eaVA

pilijong submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

i only have 3 fans exhausting. 2 fans on radiator EXHAust. 1 at the back.

Possn 1 point 7 months ago

Exactly. You only have 2 fans as intake, whereas there are 3 fans as exhaust. But it's no biggie. Just clean out your PC a bit more often since there will be more dust buildup.

Stereotypical_Whale 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

your gpus in the wrong slot, everything else is perfect tho

GunnerBomb 1 point 3 months ago

I have a question... in the 2nd photo the GPU seemed to be in the second slot and yes it was ... but like after 5 photos it is in the first slot .... does it make a difference .... if it does tell which was better .... please... cuz i am welling to put it in the second slot .

Can someone help me? Im kinda new and don't know much about computers so I need to know if everything on my pc list will fit and work together, like if they will fit in the case and if they will all connect and if im missing anything I need. Also if its a good build, if theres anything that I could get better in the price range what is it. Link https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vNBKzM

Thank you very much!

The person who replied to you advocating acquiring the operating system illegally. That's piracy. Advocating piracy on this site or even hinting at it as a solution is not allowed on this site.

Man why are u watercooling an 8400? at that price an overclocked 8350k was having better performances (considering that u'r using a watercooler...) and with the bucks u saved there you should buy a better motherboard

Wkjessee 1 Build 7 points 8 months ago

He got the 8400 and the H100i(looks like) because he is going to sell off the 8400 and get a unlocked one latter on. Did you even look at his Description?

pilijong submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

thank you sir for the clarification.

pilijong submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

yes sir im gonna have to sell it then buy either i5-8600k or i7-8700k so yeah. :)
