Yeah it worked. I don't know what happened

Probably not. The GPU fan isn't going to be able to pull a lot more air from that area anyways, since the floor is right there. If you did this, you might see 2-6 C cooler, but not a substantial amount.

It's a good build, but why are you using 6th gen processor and mobo? While Kaby Lake doesn't really offer performance increases, Z270 or even X370 has a lot of features that aren't on Z170.

Otherwise, it looks good. The i7 might be overkill for gaming though, if you don't do content creation or something, and i5 would fare you just the same for gaming.

The Fractal Design Nano S does not support SFX PSUs. You would just be wasting money buying that, as it wouldn't fit in the case properly.

The graphics card is fine being close to your PSU, as long as the PSU fan is facing downwards. If the fan is taking air in from the GPU fans, that could increase temperatures for it.

This should be more than enough to play MMO's at max settings at 1080p (some maybe even at 1440p). [REMOVED]

If you wanted to spend 5-10 more, than you can get the Phanteks P400s. The P400s has sound dampening material, so your build will be quieter, which would be nice because you'd be using the stock cooler.

If you needed to save some money, I would recommend getting an RX 480. It performs worse than the 1060 in most games, but still can do 60+ FPS on AAA titles.

Despite what everyone else here is saying, DO NOT GET A CORSAIR CX SERIES PSU They have had lots of quality issues, which is why Corsair just announced a new line to replace them.

Hope this helps.

Here's my entry. I originally did a build with a 6850k, but decided that for gaming, the 6700k and a new 144 Hz monitor would be a better option. Luckily I will be getting some money for Christmas, so if I win I put in a Hue+ and sleeved cables.

Does anyone know if they ship the PC with part boxes? Because I really want to sell mobo, ram, and case and get my personal selection.

How loud are those fans with the sound dampening? Why a 5820K instead of 6800k? also, why such a beast CPU with a GTX 1070 (which by no means is a bad card, just with a 5820k...)? Quite the upgrade from an Xbox 360.Great build! +1

Yeah, but that's kind of an AIO (i know it's not technically). Something that I would like to do is actually build a loop, not just buy one.

Why would anybody choose to get the $165 mobo over the $300 one? Just sell it and get a z-170 one if you can't use it

For gaming he should really be going with an i5, and then use that money on some gaming peripherals or better monitor.

You going to get some major bottlenecking with the GPU. That CPU is a beast, and that GPU is not great. You are also going to run out of storage fast. Don't plan on mid+ gaming until you upgrade. Also consider getting an HDD.

If those cords on the front are for peripherals, you should probably move them to the back for better aesthetics and cable management. There will be some bottlenecking with that 970 and 6300. I would have gone for a 960 or 950. Then used that to get an 8320 or even an i3 or old i5. But still not bad for first build. +1

Definitely going to be tons of bottlenecking. You spent way, way, way too much on your GPU. You could have gotten a R9 380 or 380x for $100-$200 cheaper. Used that money to get an i5-6500. Also, that PSU is wasting a lot of power.

This is an absolutely horrible build for $1000! You do not need a $135 mobo!! That case is absolutely ridiculous!!! The 750 ti is okay, but for a $1000 build, you could have gotten at least a GTX 950 or something. The ssd is super expensive for 120 gb. The power supply is only 500watt and semi-mod, IT COST MORE THAN YOUR GPU!!!!!!!!! I could get a 750 watt full-mod 80+ Gold for that price. Why did you get a gaming mouse for school stuff?! I feel bad for you.
