Description

this is my first build haven't thought of a name for it decided to go skylake for better future proofing the haswell

cpu: went for 6600k for oc capabilities and just couldn't afford a 6700k at this time

cpu cooler: went with the cryoig h7 over the 212 evo might upgrade this to a corsair 100i gtx in the future

motherboard: just liked the look of the z170x over asus m3

ram: went with corsair vengeance 3000 is a little excessive but the price I got it for was only $40 for both sticks

storage: wd 1tb for mass storage of games Samsung evo holds my os as well as orgin,steam, and uplay

gpu: r9 390 destroys all my games at 1080p will be upgrading to a 980 ti when I decide to jump to 1440p

case: nzxt 410 was gonna go with 240 but I like the built in fan controller

psu: evga gq not quite as good as a g2 but also not a bad one 650w plenty

case fans: got 2 corsair red led feel like they look better then blue led with a black case

monitor: asus 27'' not too big and not too small nice monitor

keyboard/mouse: the redragon s101 not mechanical but for the price it works nice red led to complement my color scheme

headset: Kingston hyperx cloud ii best headset I have owned nothing else to say

Awesome build! The i5 and the 390 are a perfect pair! (Also, do you watch TechSource b/c of that mouse/keyboard/mat was mentioned many times on TS)

Im not a big fan of the case but otherwise I see nothing wrong with this one

but those temps under load are a lil' bit to high for my liking. try some more cooling or under clock the cpu and gpu for better temps.

Btw unless youre fine with your computer being loud, please dont get the H100i GTX for your CPU, if youre planning on using Corsair cooling. I usually use headphones, but if im uaing my speakers, its unbearingly loud.

What's a good cooling system that's very efficient but not too loud

Not sure tbh. The h100i gtx is the only one ive ever owned, so maybe you should ask around PCPP

I've heard that it's the fans that make the noise so I might get some corsair quiet edition fans to replace the stock ones

Nice build. I just built a similar one . Your temps under load seem pretty high. How is the airflow in your case?

I just recently redid the inside of it and realized my fans were on lowest speed so might be better now

Does your CPU actually get to 80 at only 4Ghz? I was gonna get this cooler but that's ridiculous, my friend has a 4.6 with a Hyper 212X for the same price, and he never gets above mid-70s...

Good stuff, just don't put your PC in such an enclosed area. It needs room to breathe.
