Description

Hello!

As a first time desktop creator, I'm very proud to present to you...The Belgian. A €2000 machine that runs on a I7-7700k CPU combined with a GTX 1070 GPU.

I'm using it to play games, to stream and get my job done (I'm a teacher). This might be overkill, but i like to think it's fairly future proof. I haven't tested overclocking, but will do in the future. I'm also missing the NZXT HUE+ module to light my RGB fans, but that is again, for the future.

I'm very proud of this build, also because it's my first one. After nights and nights of watching videos and reading stuff, I finally accomplished something I've always dreamt about.

Please look at the pictures and tell me what you think. I'm planning on adding some RGB light strips under my desk and behind the monitor. I'm still working on my desk (not in the pictures).

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

I just love NZXT. Great cooler, also great software! At first the CAM software didn't recognize my Kraken, after re-installing everything was just fine.

Motherboard

Great great GREAT motherboard. Not even it's extremely resourceful, it's super classy! I got a €30 discount, so for the price of €190 it was a bargain.

Storage

I love this SSD, not only for the performance but also the pricing. I'll choose this anytime over the Samsung evo.

Storage

Great price, great performance, great HDD

Video Card

Great GPU and great alternative for the way to expensive 1080. I got an extra €40 discount AND two games.

Case

Beautiful case, great price, a lot of room, easy handling for a newbie.

Mouse

Great gaming mouse, but my scroll wheel keeps on spinning... I think this might be some fabrication flaw.

Headphones

Audio-Technica has great value for the price. The M50x comes with twee saparate cables (1,5m + 3,0m) and a convenient leather bag for storage.

Great looking PC, I own the same motherboard and unfortunately it didn't post straight away, The USB connectors on the back and front I/O did not work and there was no signal going to the monitor, as well as this there was no beep code indicating what the problem was. I've sent it back for a replacement hoping this will fix my issue. Did your motherboard have any issues or did you run into anything similar?

I never understood that reference. We don't eat (that) much waffles in Belgium. And indeed, I love my country for the beer. If you ever got to Belgium and you love beer, come to Leuven (close to the capital).

I'd love to visit and try all the awesone Belgium beers!
