Description

Note: My cable management is semi temporarily as I need a rework of it and I need to add a fan splitter for both of my front intake fans to work. I will be making higher quality pictures of my build soon too.

Hello and welcome, my name is Dave alias "Voaz", I am a programmer, gamer, hardware enthusiast and I do sports, sometimes.

This is my personal computer build showoff. It's name is.. White Stocks, it's white, it has a stock cooler which makes no sense. The CPU didn't even come with that stock cooler and such but it is what it is.

I KNOW I HAVE A STOCK COOLER WITH SUCH SETUP IT'S BEING REPLACED SOON OKAY ?? ... Okay let's continue

I have had my very own computer since 2005 and have been upgrading ever since and now it's becoming a little more powerful. I use my computer for some browsing, some gaming and some programming & video editing once in a while.

Besides that I'm a hardware enthusiast and a love for aesthetic but I don't always have the money I need for what I want to achieve.

Previously I had an AMD Phenom 955 at 3.2Ghz with a Radeon 5450 when it was still "pre-built" with a chinese brandless PSU and 4GB RAM.

Since then I have upgraded now literally everything. Started off with the GPU, I had a Radeon 5450, then a GTX 660, and now I have an EVGA GTX 1080 FTW. ) Later on the storage, the SSDs and to a 8GB DDR3 Kit along with it's new case, the Corsair Obsidian 350D. I have been playing a few "heavy" games in the few years and noticed a clear CPU bottleneck but I didn't have alot of money to upgrade. After working and saving my money I finally purchased a decent processor, the 6600k, along with a nice Asus motherboard ( Asus z170m plus ). And ofcourse, the exact same ram kit as I had DDR3, but now DDR4. Clocked at 2666mhz out of the box, overclocked to 3066mhz because why not. I have now 16GB ram, I didn't need more RAM but I did it for aesthetic reasons.

Future upgrades in chronological order:

CPU cooler ( AIO 280mm most likely ) and a 500GB NVME SSD.

those geils and hyper's are looking beast. I diddnt know you could use rams that were different speeds????

It is possible, but not that great of an option. I have done two things on purpose I wouldn't recommend myself.

1 Mix ram kits with different clockspeeds, altough the timings are similar.

2 Not putting the ram sticks in a correct dual channel, just for aesthetic reasons.

I like it, altough led ram isn't really my thing but I have bought them impulsive one day.

In all seriousness though, the LED ram sticks are pretty neat.

upgradability as he states with the system, a lot of it is a process. and also some people don't have the biggest of budgets so they get hardware by hardware, slow build heavy grind.

I am going to buy a 165Hz 1440p or a 240hz 1080p panel soon so, that's not too much of an overkill. Everything will come in stages ;-)
