Description

Hello everyone. For 2 years, I have been saving up, researching and planning my first ever PC. My PC has a main focus on gaming, but also recording and communication. Previously, I owned a Macbook Pro, and it wasn't impressive. Finally, after 3 years, I have a new PC. A lot has gone into this PC, but I can be proud to say that it is finally.

My PC is named DEAFaf, because I am deaf, and as a joke, I called my PC deaf, because it is very quiet. Not a catchy name, but I like it. My PC includes a GeForce GTX 1070 (MSI Gaming X), an Intel i5-6600k core, and an Asus MAXIMUS VII HERO ALPHA motherboard. Expensive, but worth it. When I began building, I was worried about eletric static, how it's going to break, e.g., but that never happened. I had help from my mum's friend, who was an expert in building PC's. He was impressed by me, since I did a lot of work in it. There were some few bumps on the way, but we managed to finish it. As we plugged it in first try, it worked great. However, as I plugged it into the monitor, I noticed something wrong - the graphics card wasn't on. So we had a few adjustments, and what do you know, it was working fine. Set up the PC, and all that. I haven't been able to test my PC, but I have tested Minecraft, and it ran over 60 FPS. I downloaded this mod, which is reportly able of running 30 fps on a GTX 980 Ti. My PC could handle 60 FPS, though a few drops occured, but hey, it's a mod.

So far, no problems. Loving the PC. I will let you guys know when I manage to get temperatures, rates, e.g

Oh, also, I'm Australian.

Nice build and it looks very nice, but I couldn't help but notice the headphones on the desk. You said you were deaf and it was the reason you named your pc DEAFaf, yet you have headphones. Veeeeery suspicious. Hope you have fun with your pc :D.

Great build, but you could really improve its aesthetics by routing the CPU power cable behind to motherboard tray.

Sorry about the results you guys got in the Overwatch World Cup, although I have no idea at all why Muselk ran a Lucio instead of Zenyatta.

Nice PC, though. Widh I could build something similar.

Don't know much about Overwatch, but hearing Muselk losing makes me disappointed :(

I mean, I was DEVASTATED, but I think hr kinda deserved it since his Zenyatta didn't even make one appearance.

A deaf gamer, that's something I've actually never seen before... Although, if you're deaf how do you know the PC is quiet? Other people? Or are you not 100% deaf or something like that? Oh, and that's a really nice build, great jobbo.

In response to those concerning the headphones, and how I think it is quiet - I equip hearing implants :D

Did you have V-Sync on when you did the benchmarks? If so, and you want to keep it on then a higher hertz monitor might be something you should look into.

I haven't done the benchmarks, and don't really know what V-Sync is

Wait, this can only run Minecraft at THIRTY fps? How poorly optimized is it?

1080's have trouble running Minecraft at 60 fps with some of the mods people use. And Minecraft is amazingly optimized
