Depends what your planning on doing with it. oh and please use a better PSU https://pcpartpicker.com/product/9q4NnQ/evga-power-supply-220g20650y1

Gaming/streaming, video editing mostly. And every review I've read of the psu says it's good

It's not that it's a bad PSU, it's just a bad PSU for the price. The G2 unit from EVGA is similarly priced and it is a much better unit, as is the Corsair RMx unit.

every review I read says it barely even makes 80+ gold and a bunch of other metrics are mediocre. it's an absolutely terrible target product for a build like this anyway. looking at the rest you should be aiming for a seasonic prime psu just because. :)

Waaaaay too much money on a lot of components. This build will accomplish the same things for 600 dollars less

A lot of the money is going for aesthetics. It may be able to accomplish the same thing, but it doesn't look the same.

Not really seeing what changes looks wise aside from the case and SSD. Can easily go for 4 sticks of RAM, but at only 16GB it's a huge waste of money. 230 bucks for a blue ray drive is pointless too.

As far as the cooler goes the Swiftech unit is leaps and bounds better than the Kraken, still has LED's, and has visible coolant you can dye to match the rest of the build

I need the disk writer for school. A lot of the work I do is on disks, br and regular CD/dvdrw

Added in the BR writer drive and changed the case again.

And you changed the mobo. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but with the eatx it gives me and my big hands more room to fit those small connections

And on top of that, I just read a bunch of reviews that said it was a pain to mess with. If I wanted that much work, I'd just go custom, plus the kraken is guaranteed to fit and work with the phantom 820

I'd be interested to see these reviews. Most people would agree it's far superior to a closed system like that Kraken due to the parts being higher quality, and the expansion opportunity's down the road

It's just a stop gap until I get around to building a custom system anyways.

the Kraken will "work" with every case that it fits in, which is a hell of alot. this build keeps the aesthetic, has a 3440x1440 monitor, 32GB of ram and a much better psu. think it'll work?

I really like the nzxt phantom series cases but yeah it'll probably work

not good. for this price you better have twice the gpu power or and be on socket X99. and you have an old,outdated, mediocre budget psu in the list.

I just changed it, and probably won't even go with the one I changed it to. And when I finish the build I'm on now I'll be able to sli with another msi gtx 1080, as I'll already have one. It's why I didn't add two to the price list. I'll actually have a lot of these.

I see. what do you mean by alot of these? the 1080, only supports 2 way SLI.
