Description

I wanted to play Rainbow Six Siege's map "Favela" at decent FPS so I built this.

I got a job to pay for this, and it feels great knowing that I did this with all my own work.

Part Reviews

CPU

Very reliable and strong. I got this at a very good price off of ebay from "Monoprice".

CPU Cooler

Good temperatures with one flaw. THE SCREWS DON'T LINE UP. It's not a big deal as it is easily fixable, but for $120 it should be perfect.

Storage

Okay. This thing died less than a year after purchase. It has a warranty, but you have to send it back in original packaging and original antistatic bags and pay for shipping.

Video Card

Silent and powerful card. The LED options are a nice addition.

Case

Nice design, good cable management options, and has rgb lighting. I bought this off of amazon for $70 and two days after the price dropped to ~55. That pissed me off.

Power Supply

Tier 1 on Toms Hardware and Tier 2 on LinusTechTips. The design is nice and has nice looking flat cables.

Monitor

Nah. This thing wobbles, has horrible viewing angles, a huge border, and is just ugly. But it gets the job done.

Keyboard

Brown key switches are quiet and tactile. Good lighting options.

Custom

Easily the best VR headset available

Nice build! I play a lot of Siege and one of the main reason's I upgraded GPU and overclocked my CPU was framedrops on Favela lol. That map just has something going on there.

(+1) Nice build! That's a gorgeous motherboard and it's nicely paired with a great CPU and GPU.

Is that white power bar in the photos connected to this rig? If so, I'd recommend grabbing a UPS to protect it against brown/black outs. UPS' have kept many of my rigs protected over the years.

Thanks, I'll consider it. My main reason for not having one is the size of them. The UPS that can hold a PC seem huge.

I guess it'll all depend on what you value. My APC 650 UPS on my main rig is not tiny, but I never see it as I've placed it behind my desk. What I love is if I'm on my rig and the lights go out, my monitor and PC never miss a beat. I simply shut it down normally and I never have to worry about corrupted programs / OS due to cutting off power.

Should have bought the phantek's rgb light strip for $20 and it's made by the people who made the case, other wise nice build

I didn't really want it. I like the lighting, but I feel that would be too much.

Pretty quiet. I don't hear anything while it's under load or idle.

I would recommend it, yes. I like the extra fan, but I can understand if some people don't like it. You can always remove it if you don't like it.
