I intended this to be a reasonably priced but powerful gaming rig, able to handle any game at 1440p 75Hz. It is replacing my dying i7-6700HQ and GTX 960M laptop. In the end it all came together pretty well, had almost no issues while building and it works great. One tiny hitch was that I realised my motherboard only has 3 fan headers, so I had to buy a fan splitter. I was luckily able to get a lot of the parts (especially the monitor) on sale for black friday, however wasn't able to build until now. Still in the process of benchmarking and planning on overclocking the 1070ti. All the parts look great, and the pc is a beast. My only complaint would be that between the blower-style GPU and stock case fans it can get a little noisy under load. Planning on buying a CPU cooler, and an extra hard drive in the future.
Sorry for the ****** pictures.
Really great processor, got it for a good price and factory overclock saves me the hassle. Also comes with a good stock cooler.
It's the best thermal compound.
Fantastic mATX board with tons of features. Easy to set up and use. Could do with 1 extra fan header.
Good quality fast RAM for a great price.
Really fast, high quality. No complaints.
Great quality and powerful card. Blower style means it runs hotter and louder but I got it for an insane price.
Fantastic case, looks great and is extremely easy to work in. I would say cable management was almost easier than in some much larger cases. Doesn't block much sound.
High quality for a good price.
Wireless Network Adapter
Strong signal, could be easier to set up.
Good fans, fairly quiet.
