Description

CPU: Was initially going to get the 6500 but the price difference was minimal so the 6600k was only right.

CPU Cooler: Probably the hardest part to install for me, the holes were not lining up but they went in with a little force. It's a good cooler keeping the CPU at around 27-30 degrees on idle.

Mobo: Small mobo that does what it needs to do, very capable.

RAM: Went for 8GB ram for now (2x 4GB) will likely add an additional for 8GB in the future.

STORAGE: SSD for OS, HDD for everything else.

GPU: Beast!

CASE: Really nice looking case, alot of space to work in + it's full metal.

PERIPH: Cheap keyboard and mouse to get through BIOS setup.

Amazing build!!


I love MicroATX-MiniATX builds, this makes me regret getting a Define S a bit..

I see you're using Powerline LAN. How does that perform? I've been wondering whether to use this or just wireless, but i'm not sure of the real life results.

It's great, I'm getting the same results as directly plugging into the router.

I will be building a very similar build. But I am concerned about pairing the 212 evo and the 6600k OC'ed together. How's that working out for you?

I have a similar build, but I'm having trouble putting in the PSU cables that fit behind the HDD cage, any tips?
