My first build.
I'll be using it for development/virtualization and gaming, so the i7-6700k was a no-brainer. A Scythe FUMA to keep it cool; around 25 °C at stock clocks under light load is very decent. Everything is performing better than I could wish, so I'm very happy with the build!
There's no GPU at the moment, but I'll be picking up an aftermarket RX 480 or GTX 1060 once they're available for a decent price.
A fantastic CPU that can handle everything you throw at it, and more. Awesome for my use (multitasking, development, virtualization and gaming). Unfortunately you pay a pretty hefty premium for the performance; the CPU by itself is worth 5 stars easily, the price makes it 4/5.
Dead silent, fantastic performance, and a good price (around €40 where I got it). Keeps my i7-6700k at around 22-25 °C under light load, all while remaining really silent. I'm very happy with this cooler.
Only gripe is that it can be a bit of a pain to mount as an inexperienced builder.
The heatsink is also quite big, which means some memory slots may be covered. Luckily, the back fan can be mounted slightly higher to mitigate this issue, though this has some impact on cooling performance.
Basic Skylake Z170 motherboard. Doesn't have too many features, but I didn't need that anyway. Nice and cheap.
What can I say? DDR4-2400, I got it for a good price. Haven't had the chance to test it extensively, but I don't think this will be a future bottleneck at all. Good value RAM kit. Bonus: low-profile for better compatibility with some coolers.
Fantastic buy. Enough said. Fast, great value SSD, one of the best on the market.
For those in need of a big storage disk, WD Blue is the right choice. Not much more to say about it, I'm happy to use this as my data drive.
Sleek, no-frills design. Good airflow. Plenty of space for building and cable management. Handy built-in velcro straps to aid cable management. Also provides great room for water cooling, if that's something you're interested in.
A great gold-rated PSU. One of the better PSUs out there, for a good price. Nearly zero ripple according to tests. Efficient.
My personal favorite feature: the fan stays completely off under light to medium loads, so it's dead silent with normal use.
