This is my first time building a PC, and it was a success. The feeling building something from scratch is amazing. I was planning to do a white build and RGB because white absorbs light well.
CASE: Actually its the black S340 wrapped in white vinyl. In that time I wasn't able to find a white case in our country(Riyadh). I was deperate to build my rig coz all the parts are just sitting waiting for a home :D
PSU: Aerocool 700W has enough juice to power this rig. Not modular but it gets the job done. Just a little effort in cable management.
CPU: I chose the i7-6700k without doubts. I sometimes do some video editing and this proc will help a lot.
CPU cooler: I had a hard time deciding where to put the rad on this AIO. I wasn't expecting it to be so thick that there's no way to mount it in the front. So I decided to mount it at the back, but unfortunately, the IO shroud is now blocked :( Performance wise, this AIO does it's job pretty well. Idling at 27 degrees and reaches 60 on load.
MOBO: First time i saw this mobo and i fell in love. It will suit well in my white build. I was torn between the krait and this, but the IO shroud of the Z170A won me.
RAM: 16GB is fairly enough for gaming. But I'm planning to go for 64GB just for overkill. And it looks good filling all 4 RAM slots haha.
SSD: I went for samsung 750 evo because of aesthetics. It's just simply clean.
GPU: I was planning to get the Galax HOF 1080 but they don't sell it here in our country. And the Galax store is sold out. I wasn't able to find any sites selling the Galax HOF. So i decided to get the ASUS Strix, because of aesthetics and performance. It has by far the best cooling in all 1080s. idles at 40 and reaches 70 on full hd ultra settings. Performance wise, I have no words. Slap any game and it will run smoothly. I'm planning to paint it white and side mount it so just wait :D
LED lights: Im using an Ikea dioder. I'm planning to get the HUE soon.
More pics coming :D
thank you PC master race!
