I haven't started the build yet, but now that I think about it, a dual fan kraken isn't necessary for cooling the APU. Also, this is for mediocre gaming, with games like SC2 and CSGO in mind. If one were to use a small PC for productivity, I'd get an i5 6400t and a compatable mini itx mobo. A hard shell backpack would be necessary and I like the idea of fans on both sides is great. I do want to start this build soon, but I am waiting for a newer apu from AMD for better performance with the release of Zen. I am glad this build inspired you though.
Cables are included with the PSU, motherboard and GPU, for their respective parts.
Wow. That's really aesthetic.
You got a nice OC on that CPU, a really nice one.
I love the contrast, it was well executed.
I'd get a xeon if I were to stream on a budget. They don't cost much more than an i5, but can't overclock and don't have onboard graphics. But you do have a gpu.

Great job flashing that bios. I really like how amd turns a blind eye and allows the consumer to push their hardware to the max.
That's really aesthetic. Beatuiful and glorious, especially with a $250 r9 fury
I still have one of my computers with one of these at 5.4 I think.
Oh god, that's really aesthetic. Hope you oc that sumbitch super hard.
You what they say... MORE PICTURES PLEEEEESEEEE
This build might be for editing, as the large amount of storage, the multiple monitors, and the overkill cpu were picked. Granted this might not game well, it sure could edit.
I wouldn't get 32 gb of ram, but sure, it would work just fine for your needs
I sure miss bclk overclocking.
My jaw dropped when I saw the thumbnail to your build. Pretty sick looking!!
On my brother's 8350, it stays at about 70C with a 4.1 ghz overclock. I would probably get something else if a serious overclock were to be applied.
Nasa wants their computer back.
That K|NGP|N card reminds me of old times. Good card still.
I hope he gets that new i7 soon.
No, but I'm sure the real one responds sometimes.
no, but he might respond here.
Yup. Nvidia wanted to glorify the 1080 more probably.
Nvidia is secretly leaving "older" cards out of a few optimization patches. I don't like being pushed to upgrade from maxwell to pascal, but I think I might actually have to before support is cut off, although ridiculous for 1gen old cards to be cut off.
Groovy man. Just Groovy.

Yeah, just found out about the posiden card lineup, thanks!
It's pretty sick how he was able to keep the fans on, along with a waterblock for that super sick look. And he hard-tubed it!
Looks pretty sick with the white and blue!
sorry. take my +1
Sick ssds man! Intel's ssd's are by far the most reliable nowadays with all the shady nand's going around.
I t ' s a l l i n y o u r h e a d .
That setup is straight up sick looking. I'm not even going to question the cpu.
I wish that the ASUS DUAL series gpu's would come with a backplate. Now that I think about it, all gpu's should come with a backplate. Great build still.
sick aesthetics man
Nice job fitting a custom loop in an itx! Now I know you didn't hardline it, but your tube pathing is pretty good.
That is one sick battlestation!!
It's about a gtx 730, it can go high in 720p but is pretty marginal in 1080p
Can you please add a custom price for them in this guide?
Live off top ramen for a few months while reminding yourself as you are getting sicker and sicker of the ramen, that it will be over one day, and the dream rig will be built.
It's a competent 1440p card that works well for small cases. It's almost a mini r9 fury.
I'd get a 1070 with your build. I can't really justify near-doubling the price of the 1070 for a 1080, without the performance to match it. The 1070 is a very competent card right now capable of 1440p and some 4k.
I almost got triggered at your comment.
I can confirm that the first monitor you mention is a decent overclocker. I managed to get it to 72 herts before running into flickering, and my friend also highly recommends the second monitor as well.
I think that the power efficiency curve justifies higher watt PSU's see this for the curve
I'm going to be honest, but I never thought about my power bill when picking my pc parts. I thought the difference was negligible, as my pc is "high end" and draws barley over 300 watts idle and about 500 under full load. To be honest, an overclocked GPU would be the bulk of the power draw.
To answer your question, I don't really know, but the 6500 has a better value than the 6600k overall .
