Description

My first PC build, I've always wanted to build a PC since i was a young'n. I've been console gaming all my life, always had such low spec PCs. I thought i'd spend that extra buck and get the bang :) . I absolutely loved configuring my parts, and collecting them one by one as the delivery service dropped them off. As it's my final year at University (hopefully), I need a PC that could run all my programs and games for my Computer Science course ;)

I put it together with the help of a few friends. The build was fairly straight forward other than the fiddly heat-sink. During this build I learnt many things about my self, one being cable management isn't my speciality :D

I plan on using almost all the parts that you are besides the storage, ram, case, and cpu cooler. What are your cpu temps like with an air cooler? I've been searching around to see if an air cooler would suffice for the 6600k since I don't plan on going too crazy with the overclocking. Thanks if you get back to me!

The CPU cooler seems to work perfectly for me, i haven't OCed yet, i'll probably look to do that sometime down the line.

I personally think it will do the job for you, do get a few opinions before you make your mind up, maybe post a thread on tom's hardware hopefully someone will have a 6600k overclocked with the hyper 212 evo cooler and they can tell you first hand.

i played warhammer om ultra, warhammer is a CPU intensive game, hopefully you got an idea of the temps, good luck bro

Hey I appreciate you getting back to me. Like I said, I don't plan on OCing too much so I will be purchasing an air cooler instead. Your temps look pretty good so it gives me a little hope that I won't fry my cpu. Thanks again dude

How many FPS do you get playing DayZ with max settings w/ Clouds? Thx!

Hey bathtub360 fps in day z is pretty random to be fair, theres large spikes in the fps, in major cities you hit a low of 27 other times you can get over 100 frames, it averages maybe 40-50fps. Sorry i can't really give you a specifics due to poor optimisation of day z. Do search gtx 1070 day z benchmarks on youtube to get a better idea, that's what i did before buying my gpu.

Yes, having crossfire or SLI doesn't work in all (If not most) games, and also consumes more power and is more expensive.

I ran sli 670's for years so i can speak from experience. There are games that it doesn't work/ doesn't work well in, but it does work in most of the demanding AAA titles out there (many on release). there are generally 50 %to 80% gains when using it. That being said there are obvious problems with the technology, but stating that 'doesn't work in all if not most games" is just nonsense. a single card is better every time there's no doubt, but sli isn't as terrible as people make it out to be.
