My updated PC Build 2016

by Calipse


Updgraded my old AMD build, had it since late 2013 it was a good pc back in the day but now its slacking. Had an AMD FX 8350, R9 280 3gb and 8 gigs of ram. Ive worked a couple of jobs just to get this beast, and also saving alot of money. The reason i chose the 980 instead of the 980ti and why the xtreme 980?, well thats cause 1. Money 2. i only play games at 1080p. The reason why i pick the i7 is cause my friend recommended it saying it will be better in gaming and editing/ streaming. Why two 1tb HDD's?. well i had one 1tb HDD and i only needed 1tb more :P. and why an 1080p 60hz monitor and not 1440p or 144hz?. money issues but i will get an 144hz BenQ Xl2720z in the summer :D. and why the blackwidow and not k70? well i got it in christmas and i like razer more (not a fanboy just personal preference). also dont judge my cable managment :P. and if you're wondering why i've taped my microphone is because the thing that holds it up broke :/ and im to lazy to order a new one.

Part Reviews


Great CPU for both gaming and video editing, also great for streaming. Allthough its very expensive but if you got the money and you're into videoediting/streaming go for it :D

CPU Cooler

Great CPU cooler for a cheap price tag, got it 1 or 2 years ago not quite sure but cools my cpu good :D


Bios looks sexy 10/10 -ign


Windows boots in 3 seconds


bit in the slow side but gets the job done

Power Supply

Great PSU for the price and all i need

You might want to add some cable management loops to your desk.

Naah.. EVGA is quite a reputed brand, even their lower rung PSUs have 12v/5v rail protection as well as OTP --over-temperature protection / SCP (Short Circuit Protection)..

Nice build.. A 1900 build and such dull pics ?? I hope you change those pics to some flashy ones.. All in all nice build...

inside pics would be swell

Kaden2301 1 point 38 months ago

Looking through your components are amazing! But I agree with "Ropota" some pictures of the inside so we can thoroughly get a look at your hardware would be great!

Calipse submitter 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

Inside pics will maybe come, im kinda lazy and it weighs a **** ton so maybe :p
