Description

I built this for 1080p gaming. It works fine. Asus Strix GTX 960 4GB can handle any game @1080p 45-60+fps at high settings. Skylek Cpu goes 54 ° C when running GTA V,FAR CRY 4, Battlefield Hardline etc...and gpu goes 63 ° C when full load.

How has that PSU been treating you? Any complaints when gaming?

I want to buy one of these and would appreciate your take on it. How do you connect to the monitor? DVI > HDMI? HDMI > HDMI? (I'm praying you don't use the VGA connector). And one question about storage: Did you consider a SSD?

Hey Man

I heard that this mobo isnt a full atx motherboard, its width is a little short, correct?. I was planning on getting it but i just wanted to see if you had any issues due to it being not full ATX

I'm shopping for CPU coolers for my system. Just wondering if the Hyper 103 is still working for your skylake without overclock and how things are going? Also, do you think it'd be enough for the 6700k?

Nice build and cable management ! how is that motherboard im thinking about getting the same one is good for average and heavy gamer like me ? impressed that gpu is below 85 temperature mine was an 6400 tough not an 6600k like yours so yeah my computer died has well the gpu i guess it what's you get from an 7 year old computer anyway your build is really neat!
