Description

I built this machine for gaming and game development. I choose the 4690k mostly due to price. This system was over $100 cheaper than the skylake build I was looking into. I had fun putting the build together. It has been over ten years since I built a pc. I was a little surprised at how easy it was to put together. Everything was installed and running Windows in under 4 hours. I haven't stressed it or overclocked it yet. I will be doing both soon and updating this build when I do.

Edit 2/20/16: I have finally done some overclocking got a stable 4.5ghz on 1.260V on the 4690K. Also overclocked GPU to 1080Mhz. Had 3DMark 11 score of P14342. Added temps as well.

You don't have any intake fans. Might want to flip the cooler fans around.

Why does the gpu say "lite edition" on it? Is there a difference between that and the regualr one?

Has a bit smaller factory clock speed.

It is a mild underclock compared to the regular edition. i think its 30 or 40 mhz underclocked.
