Description

PC for Gaming and work. Went for a red themed build.

Very happy with the performance, and with the water cooling on the CPU my temps are never an issue.

Part Reviews

CPU

A breeze to overclock and easy to keep stable using the water CPU Cooler I have, very happy I went for the i5.

CPU Cooler

Was a tight fit in NZXT S340 Elite case and a MSI GTX1070, but it got in and keeps CPU temps really low. Works excellent!

Storage

As you'd expect, super fast!

Video Card

Love it, have no problems with 99% of games on max settings.

Case

Love the case, hides cables extremely well and appears to have heaps of room (see my pics). Would definitely buy it again!

Awesome build dude! I like pretty much the monitors and the color-matching, but i still have questions. I would like to know what you are using to hang the headset that way on the case? And then, why you bought a 5.1 stereo-system if 2 of the speakers are unused/not useful cause of directed to the wall?

The NZXT case came with the headphones holder. It is magnetic and sticks to the front of the case, it even has a space for cables to wrap around.

Regarding the 5.1 stereo, I actually owned it before the build and it was unused so just added it to this PC. I normally use the Astro headset when gaming but sometimes I don't want the headset and the speakers are better than monitor speakers :)

I can totally complain with you! I hate headphones and use it only when i am gaming on multiplayer: for everything else i use extra speakers.

Have you tried inverting the Switchtech 240 to the top vertically and removing the cable cover to make it fit upwards?

lol why not i5 7600k? If you're to call your pc a 2017 gaming rig. Have recent parts.

It was built in 2016. Kaby Lake CPUs weren't available until 2017.

As MjolnirThunder said, i5-7600k was released in Q1 2017. If you look at the build date you would have seen this system was built in December 2016 - in preparation for 2017.

Yes I see when it was built, but if the parts are outdated it's not correct to name it a 2017 gaming pc, when at this current stage there is a better, newer and more affordable cpu. If I were to purchase a gtx 780ti and build it in 2017, doesn't make it a relevant 2017 gaming pc.
