Description

Old computer was getting a bit outdated. At first I was torn between a 4k build, or a 1080p 144hz. I eventually decided on a 1080p 144hz build. All parts where purchased on sale, the bulk of them purchased on boxing day at my local Canada Computers.

Always loved the 400c. Wish Corsair would have made versions of it in smaller form factors. Would love to see an ITX 400c, probably called the 200c or something.

Its a nice case. I only wished the hard drive cages were placed more towards the front. Even with a fully modular PSU, I had troubles getting all the cables I needed in.

From what I've seen with it, I can see how that would be an issue. They cant be moved?

Why did you get two hard drives?

But why would he get another hard drive if he already had one?

Because he needed more capacity then what one could offer? If one was free then its also why not.

Same reason why 2 dollars is better than 1 dollar.

You can never have enough storage

Maybe you understood wrong: I meant to say why have two DIFFERENT hard drives? Why can't they be the same type of drive, for example, 2x WD BLUE 1TB?

My other 1tb blue is currently in another build. I was just to lazy to swap it out, when the 2tb wasn’t being used at all.

I had a few extra hard drives laying around. This one being the biggest at 2tb, and 7200rpm. Figured the more storage the better!

What was your reasoning on going 1080p over 4K other than price. An extra $600 could have gotten you a 4k monitor and the 1080ti? Future proof it a little more? $600 on your build is close to 30% more so I understand the money aspect. Just curious, is 4k harder on the eyes? (Newb)

I play mainly fps games, so 144hz for smoothness was a factor. Also I already overshot my original budget by about a thousand dollars.. in the future I’ll probably upgrade the gpu when I want to checkout 4k gaming. Hope that helps

Where did you get your graphics card? I was looking for the same card but they were all sold out or overpriced.

How is the 8600k? Is it worth the extra money for a 1080p machine? Looking to build a htpc here but I want it to be capable for at least a few years. Any opinions would be highly appreciated.

The 8600k is great, honestly I wish I spent the extra and got the i7 for a 100 or so more. But for my current needs the i5 is great. I wouldn’t spend the extra money on a K if you don’t plan on overlooking though.

I plan on overclocking eventually so that's why I'm looking at the K. Looks like I'll be putting my build on the shelf for a while because I refuse to pay more than $450 for a 1070 and that's even pushing what one is worth IMO. Freaking miners man.
