Description

My main focus was improving the aesthetic of my 2015 build. After over a year this pc is still kicking *** in games at 1080p. The 390 still has a while before i will consider it obsolete. I don't have any specific plans for upgrades, however, when the time comes that i will stop seeing atleast 60 fps at medium to high settings in new games then i will probably replace only the GPU as i7s tend to last a while.

Thanks for checking this out. Here is my old desc which will be about the 3rd i have reused it. lol

Im going to post some updated reviews on the products that are still worth buying today


the only reason i got the i7 5775c is because my cousin has a friend who works at intel and he was able to get it for me for $200 (which was awesome), if that didn't happen i would have payed full price for a i5 4690k

all my selections where made based off the reviews and price, and i went with this specific mobo because of the price and the crossfire/sli if i ever feel like upgrading my psu and getting 2 video cards

the perk with the i7 5775c is that it doesn't come with intel hd graphics, it has a better version called intel iris pro. it is capable of running planetside 2 on medium/high setting and textures on ultra (of course, some things that everyone turns off are off) i was very suprised at the FPS actually being pretty high. This really came in handy during the 3 months i didnt have a video card.

The video card is a beast. Skyrim maxed out with 2k textures mod always stays at 60 fps (which it seems to be locked to) Planetside 2 maxed out will never go below 55 fps even in huge battles. The witcher 3 with a custom graphic setting runs very smooth @ 60-75 FPS. Fans running at 100 percent are pretty loud, but not as loud as the stand up fan i have next to me so that doesn't bother me. the sweet spot is 40%.

OCed my CPU to a stable 4.2 ghz, this chip is a great overclocker. I have heard of someone booting windows while their 5775c was OCed to 5ghz on air!

Thanks for looking at my build! feel free to comment

Excellent monitor. Freesync and 144hz is amazing.

I love this mouse and the RGB is a huge plus if you dont like the blue.

Headphones

still comfortable and loud after about 7 months of usage.

Food

Had to clean my razer keyboard after eating this. Not recommended for the gamer

Its good if you can tolerate the urge to piss every 15 minutes and being able to feel the blood rushing in the veins throughout your entire body.

the i7 - 5775C is such a wierd I7 because it came between the 4770k / 4790k and the 6700k, can you even overclock it?

  • 18 months ago

Yes it is an excellent overclocker. overclocked from 3.3 ghz to a stable 4.2 with an nzxt x62. Stays below 60 degrees

I feel like the 4790k OCd will give you better performance though .-.

Yeah it probably would but i got the 5775c brand new for half the price of the 4790k in 2015
