What would you have built if you had the amount of money you used to buy those books?
Nice color coordination
For a stock heatsink, I'd say 40 C is regular.
I have the Logitech g810. It is literally the same as the Logitech G pro but with a number pad and media keys. I personally love this keyboard not just for its style but its feel. I have had keyboards Cherry MX Brown switches and one with knockoff brown switches and I personally love the romer-g tactile switches over brown switches. If I was wanting to get a compact version of my keyboard, the Logitech G Pro would be my go to.
That said, I would say that you try it out for yourself. Logitech unfortunately doesn't distribute samples or testers of their switches like Cherry MX does. So if you want to try it out I would recommend going to a Best Buy (If there is one near you). They usually have a section of keyboards on display that you can tryout and see if it's good for you. If that is not possible, I can only suggest getting the G pro and trying it out for yourself for about a week or two. If you like it and think that it's what you are looking for, keep it. If you aren't that satisfied with it or don't like it at all, return it for a full refund. It's not the best method, but sometimes you got to work with what you got.
Makes since. In my first build almost all of my budget went to the pc and very little went into peripherals. Over time I upgraded them (mechanical keyboard, quality headset, a slightly more comfortable mouse) and when I built my second pc I kept the same peripherals. It really made my transition more smooth.
Ironically I have already replaced all of my peripherals again (this was over the span of the past 2 - 3 years so not all at once). Except this time I am certain that I will be keeping these peripherals. This time I mean it. I promise.
Nice work! Would like to see what you'll do in the future.
I really wish I had a laptop like this when I started college. I had a basic pentium cpu laptop from Toshiba. Integrated graphics, 6 gb of ram and like a 750 gb hdd that ran super slow.
Holy crap! I don't think I've ever seen that case before. Thing is big!
Nice looking build! I should do look forward to showing this to the younglings at the jedi temple. It looks to die for........sorry.
Nice build! And very impressive looking set up. The first picture gave me a strong since of deja vu. My first two years of college I was using a 2012 Toshiba laptop that I had gotten for a graduation present. It was seriously bare bones. Intel pentium processor and like a 500gb hdd @5400 rpm so everything was incredibly slow. Also the monitor was only 1366 x 768. Could barely play games I wanted.
I won't lie. I love this build, but I liked this post mostly cause of the rubber duck. 10/10 would recommend rubber ducky.
Could use more pictures. Overall, solid build. Definitly a good price/performance.
That looks awesome! Did you get the vinyl through a retailer or are they custom?
I just finished playing Witcher 2 and I am looking forward to playing Witcher 3.
This PC is from an era when I first found out that you could build your own PC. Really wish I could have started then. This is quite a trip down memory lane.
Couldn't find a prebuild with the right specs. Builds it yourself. A true baller move.
Looks nice! You definitely put a lot of time and effort into planning this.
I'm Commander Shepard and this is my favorite build on the Citadel
I just saw a plush seagull build a PC and now I am pumped as ever to build myself a new computer!
For a first time build, as humorous as it is I have heard many "self error" stories that were far worse. Years ago I had a friend that had his Xbox 360 RMA'd several times only to find out that the reason why it didn't work was because he hadn't pushed the power cable into the socket in all the way.
Looks awesome! Btw you have i9 9900 in the part list rather than the 9900k. Still epic though.
Looks great! I've been looking at this CPU cooler for my next build, but there are still things that I've been trying to find out about it. Like how do you change the LEDs on the cooler?
Looks nice. Does your wife know how much it cost?
I oddly love how clean everything looks in the second picture. Efficiently cable managed and not even a single spec of dust.
It looks very cool! But I'm curious as to why you would involve custom water cooling to the GPU and settle with an AIO water cooler for your CPU.
I know that the pc is orange, but I swear that it's either the lighting, the camera, or my phone cause it looks red to me.
Great build, would like to see more pics of the inside of the PC.
A quad core CPU, 16 GB of RAM, SSD boot drive with 500 GB for mass storage, and an rx 580 GPU. That's a pretty cozy build for about $650. My first laptop (a Pentium cpu using integrated graphics) was just barely this much when I got it back in 2013 and I was happy to be able to play games like Oblivion and Fallout new vegas on low medium settings at 1366 x 768. If I had a pc like this, I would have been so much happier in college.
That's hot. And I'm not talking thermals.
Damn. Just Damn, man. First, seven vertical monitors side by side never looked so good. Second, I did not know that Nvidia actually had and 800 series. Third, very clean. I love it!
Nice work customizing your case! I thought about doing a carbon fiber wrap with my case, but I didn't know where to start or even where I would finish. Settled on just doing a basic paint job instead.
Those "used" parts are just as good, if not way better, than what I have now. I don't need that kind of thinking right now, man. I can not afford to upgrade my mouse, let alone my PC.
Still looks awesome though. Love the bends on the piping.
This has to be my favorite apple build! Not that I've seen a lot, but if there is one thing I'll admit to apple, it's looks.
Gonna need a new motherboard for that. I've got the same CPU and I know that there is no more road to upgrade there. Would you stick with intel (maybe 8th gen, 9th...... 10th?) or would you go with AMD?
It looks good and all, but why is the noctua fan on the CPU cooler (at least that what I think it's on) point in the wrong direction?
If it works and you don't know how, don't worry about. It you broke something off (and you don't know what it does) and it works, worry about it later.
Cool build. So what do you use in your rig now?
Can't stop, won't stop.
Wow, this is pretty badass! Definitely raised the bar on themed builds.
Looks pretty epic! Nice paint job
Nice! I always loved seeing sleeper builds. I hope to do my own one day.
Yo, what kind of case is that? It looks pretty cool from the front.
Ah, yes. This is indeed a decent pc for "homework." Got to make sure that you can get at least 144 fps at 4k in microsoft word and excel.
Exactly. It's kinda like the equivalent of your parent telling you "I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed in you." It hurts but you know that they're right.
In the first picture, I feel that your PC is judging me for things that I have done and I don't like it. But I know that it is right to judge me.
Nice build! Also nice model M keyboard.
Ongoing builds are the best builds! It shows the owner not only did their homework, but as also not given up on improving their build! No build is ever done.
Dude, don't just give us a picture and call it a day. Let us see the internals! I wanna see more of this build! Let's see the fruits of your labor.
I always thought of noctua as having the worst color scheme, but damn is it not beautiful to see a build using all noctua fans. It really shows that this is more of a quality build than just a "wooow look at my RGB" type of build. Also love your selection of parts, great quality for the dollar!
Oh hell ya! I love this build! This looks awesome, I got to respect a build that someone build for someone else but this is truly epic! An i5 that runs on ddr4, ssd boot drive, 16 gb of ram (after the spike in ram prices that we suffered through that seem like a luxury), and a gtx 1070. You're a good sibling dude, and a good person. Mad respect!
Dude, I'm late for this but I love the part selection and theme of this build. I had just listened to "I'm blue" by Eiffel 65 on my way home from work and saw this build and thought "Oh hell ya! That kicks ***!." Really cool build man!
Yo, I'm really late to this. But I've been looking at blue themed pc's while listening to "I'm Blue" by Eiffel 65 and this build rocks! Mad respect!
