First build. For Gaming.
Black Friday Special 2016. $1725 APX.
White. Black. Blue.
New x52 Kraken! Wanted the x62, but they were out of stock :(
1070 is a beast.
Love to hear your thoughts.
Great color coordination, love the case (but then I would, having one myself!) +¹
I appreciate it! Originally was going to do a black, white, red theme (because all parts are that color, at least the ones I wanted), but when I saw MSI release the 1070 Quick Silver version, I IMMEDIATELY switched.
lol nice name that was the name of my build I have the exact same card but I changed the named of my build not too long ago.
omggg nice build!! the colors combination....everything!
check out my new build! :D
Thanks! I know, I wasn't sure how the blue would look, but it everything matched well.
Your build looks great! MSI cards look great IMO.
Not bad. Seasonic Prime 650 would be better.
Thanks! Yeah I got a great deal on the EVGA, $99 and couldn't say no!
Nice one. Im considering between Soundstick III and Leviathan, can you please give me advice?
I actually have the Soundstick II and they are about 8 years old, and still working perfectly! The sound is great, with no complaints.
The Leviathan's look great and minimalistic (which I prefer), but have never tried them!
Super clean build OP +1.
BTW how's that PSU? I'm planning on getting the same one and was wondering if you ran into any problems with it.
PSU is great, super easy to use, and powers everything perfectly. No issues whatsoever.
It is overkill for the build, but hopefully I can SLI soon lol.
Got a great deal on it during black friday , $99 @ B&H Photo.
Sounds great, thanks man!
nice clean build man. Just enough blue to stand out but not dominate. I swear when my 10 year old logitech 5.1 system give out I am gonna get me some soundsticks!
Thanks! Yeah I didn't want the blue to dominate, was unsure how it was going to look when purchasing everything and was crossing my fingers it would match!
The Soundsticks are awesome! No complaints at all!
lol i have the same set of speakers for my living room. This is a bloody great build. I really love that GPU. It looks great. How do you like the mouse? I'm thinking of getting one. And damn that is a nice CPU cooler. And yeah 1070's are great. I've been running every game at 120+ FPS if it lets me.
Thanks man! GPU is great, glad they released this version, as I wanted the 1070 but did not like the red and black combos. It is def. a beast!
Mouse is great! No complaints, originally wanted a wireless mouse, but this works great. The weights feel good, and the aluminum finish is nice. The software is a breeze to use.
Love seeing all these Kraken's.
It's so sick, that mirror!
Where did you get 1070 quick silver in canada?
No, from Newegg US.
which mouse mat are you using?
Hey does the msi quicksilver have full customization of RGB's?
It does through their gaming app. Only the MSI Logo on the side can be changed, and the MSI Shield on the top plate.
Love your build. Trying to redo my build to something similar to this. Curious though as to what fans you used? The white one? Was thinking of getting rgb fans but thought it might be overkill and I really like how clean yours is.
Currently using the stock fans from the NZXT H440. FNv2. 1 140mm, and 3 120mm.
They did just release the AER F, if you didn't want the RGB, and just replace the trim. I just got the white trim for my Kraken fans, and they are awesome!
I also thought the RGB might be overkill as well, still deciding :) If I did, I would only get one for the exhaust!
I know you said the card is a monster, but I wanted to see if it was still running well for you and if you had any benchmarks I could see. Been wracking my brain for days going back and forth between this GPU and the Gigabyte G1.
Thanks in advance.
Really nice build also! Clean.
Thanks! I haven't had a chance to do any benchmarks, but everything I have played (Witcher, Watch Dogs, Overwatch, Battlefield) has all been on ultra and buttery smooth....
I also picked this GPU partially because of aesthetics and the RGB lighting :)
I'll try and get some benchmarks if I can for you!
This is how I imagine mine to look when i buy this case! nice!!
Thanks, def. worth it!
It's legit, easy to build on, and love the small details they put into designing it. Happy Building!
Crazy, you're exactly right. Very similar, but def. different! Yeah I had the Soundsticks already, perhaps i'll buy something new down the road, but they work just fine!
NZXT needs to stock up, their sold out of everything! I'm wanting to replace the trim on the fans, and get AER RGB for the exhaust!
