Not a bad build. Needs some clearer pictures, but in terms of the build, it should work very well for you. Balanced part choices.

He'll definitely get some great usage out of this build, good part choices. Maybe a little overkill on PSU wattage, but never hurts.

Only a little cable management with the PSU cables and it'll be a really great build!

Definitely in need of some cable management, and your motherboard seems rather overkill for your budget. You might want to purchase a mechanical drive soon as you'll probably use up that SSD rather quickly.

Blender is actually rather GPU-dependent so you may want to upgrade from the 1050Ti sooner rather than later. Your games will thank you as well.

I'll give you that, a budget of $0 IS a budget killer I'll tell you that.

But yeah, just adding back to the rest of the comments -- the PSU will probably burn your house down, or at least fry your components. Get one with at least an 80+ efficiency, and never anything from Logisys, which has burned houses down. Just on part choice, you probably spent a disproportionate amount on that overclocked RAM, and if you don't have a graphics card you probably could have stuck with the stock cooler. Mounting your motherboard in the case before putting the CPU, cooler, or RAM in it will be pretty fun to deal with later though.

Definitely update your pictures when it's finished so you can post a Completed Build to Completed Builds!

More likely to die than burn someone's house down -- EVGA is usually great, but I have a hard time trusting PSUs that cost under $50.

Great part choices, that build should perform very well for you.

Definitely in need of cable management though.

Great looking build -- you probably could have gotten the same performance for a lot less money, but it'll be perfect for you nonetheless.

On the keyboard -- if you think MX Reds sound clicky like a typewriter, you're only going further down that rabbit hole with Browns -- Reds are a linear switch, and don't have an artificial click upon actuation like Blues and Greens. Browns are a little louder just because of the tactile bump.

TIL cases can be fast

I don't really understand selling your old one and then getting almost entirely the same build but that's good on the upgrade to the i5. That PSU seems like it'll probably burn your house down at some point though, an upgrade on that would be better before selling.

**** me, that's an absolutely beautiful build. Only thing that you might want to figure out is that PSU -- seems way underkill for your build.

You're making me want to watercool, and I can't afford it -- amazing work.

i3-6300 isn't the BEST price-to-performance chip for a build on this budget, but this build should work alright for you. I spy those unlisted Noctuas as well -- you'll get that silence you want. Decent deals on the rest of the parts as well.

Obviously this case doesn't have many cable management features, so you're all set for now on using this baby.

That's a really great looking build -- white S340s and Krakens are essentially cheating at this point ;)

Your CPU shouldn't be bottlenecking too hard, perhaps it's time for an overclock. You don't have super high headroom with your PSU wattage, even if it is a great PSU.

Those FPS numbers don't make sense to me -- a build that runs at 60 FPS at 1080 would run much less than 45-50 at 4K, even on low-medium settings.

Other than that, super super nice looking build.

Still a bit of a mess of cables, but a fun build nonetheless.

Wild build, hopefully the old architecture works out for you.

If you're going for it, see if you can find anything that'll work for watercooling that CPU and that's a great place to go on.

Only upgrades I can see here would be to grab a liquid cooler and higher wattage PSU for some temp and wattage headroom if you decide to overclock in the future.

Great build otherwise, a great tribute. RIP.

That case is the most beautiful thing, dear lord.

I'd agree with the lower comments and get yourself a 2160 or 1440 monitor, two if you want, as a next upgrade, and definitely a new cooler -- seems a little under standard for the parts that you have, especially if you plan an overclock, although should run sufficiently for now -- something like an H100i, and with this level of performance and budget you can look into some custom watercooling.

Beautiful build otherwise, just a tiny bit of cable management.

Love the look of X62s, but like you said, it is a purely aesthetic upgrade. Most NZXT products are honestly more for aesthetics, and more practical solutions end up being cheaper. If aesthetics are your goal, then NZXT is great -- and that being said, this build is absolutely aesthetically beautiful.

Solid part choice, although be careful if you end up overclocking as 600W doesn't leave you with a TON of headroom. Seems like a logical choice for a next upgrade, something with a little more power, more efficiency and something modular for easier cable management.

Of course, but it also might be a more expensive upgrade later depending on part prices than having made the initial investment. Seems like it'd be pretty close to the same price though in your case, so if the money works out for you now and later, then it's great.

Linus has a couple in-depth videos on it if you like his content, and other smaller channels have plenty of tutorials as well.

Got it -- I myself probably would have gone with a 6600K from the outset and overclocked for the clock speed I need, but an upgrade to an i7 makes sense for you then -- the extra threads will definitely help.

Shouldn't be too tough of a job to move your OS over to a new m.2 -- searching "how to move os to ssd" yielded plenty of results, and it shouldn't be more than physically moving your files over and tweaking a few BIOS settings.

Extremely similar build to what I'm going to be putting up soon -- we're great at price-to-performance, are we not?

Only logical next upgrade would be a nice-looking case, and you'll be set with that machine for a long time.

Yeah, that's not a great deal for a 1050Ti. The RX 480 I just picked up was at 179.

Other than that, looks like the build will work well for him. Maybe picking up a small SSD as a boot drive would be a good next upgrade, considering it's much cheaper than a CPU/motherboard/RAM overhaul -- it'll improve usability by a good bit.

All you need for a budget build. Pretty balanced, good stuff.

That's a really great build! Anything with custom cables and LED fans is something most people don't do in their first build, and it's awesome that you got it done on this budget! Cable management looks great as well. Only thing you may have gone a little overkill on was the PSU, you could have gone for something with a lower-wattage and still had room to upgrade your CPU to something overclockable.

I didn't expect to see such high framerates from the i3 and 1050 Ti, so you should be set for a long time before you need an upgrade! If I could suggest one, you might want to spring for a small SSD for use as a boot drive, which will speed up your boot times and basic system processes by numbers that'll make usability a lot better for you.

Temps can usually be found somewhere in your BIOS. Performance tests could be something like FireStrike or Geekbench.

That's a great looking build, great cable management, and putting Cablemod on deck makes every build better. For a next upgrade, a good logical step would probably be a leap to an i5, would be a little bit more balanced. And probably a mechanical drive for mass storage when the space on the EVO runs out -- I was optimistic on not needing more than the SSD space myself, and ended up buying a 2TB 2 months in.

Nice build! For now, I'd only suggest tidying up your cable management, and you'll be set!

You might want to invest in a small SSD (120-240GB) for use as a boot drive as a next upgrade, which will speed up your boot times and basic system processes by huge numbers, and give you a much better experience on usability than immediately upgrading to an i7.

Rendering and converting video can still be improved with GPU-dependent processes -- a good place for a next upgrade, but the rest of the build looks great, love all the white.

Hey, that's pretty good!

Love the look of the X62 in every build, I still can't justify paying that much for aesthetics myself. Great deal on the 1080s, seems like a really balanced build that'll perform very well for you.

You definitely could have done a lot better for the price -- even if you wanted a Z170 motherboard on a non-K chip, that one's on the high end of the price point, same with the PSU. For $850, I'm planning a rig with a 6600K and an RX 480. 250GB of storage is also going to be in need of an upgrade sooner rather than later probably.

You can probably get away with a G4400/G3258 and 4GB RAM but good build for this kinda thing
