Description

A build for a friend on a specific budget of £1200. This is possible to do for even cheaper depending on how the prices go for the GPU and the money could be saved on the motherboard as well thus in theory it's possible to achieve this for £1000 if you are getting parts from all over the place, unfortunately this was a finance build so I won some and i lost on some of the deals out there. In the end it was a really decent build for someone who's pretty much never had a decent PC and is about to enter the master race of PC in style.

Very nice build. Hopefully that 8GB of RAM won't be a bottleneck. I find myself using 9 or 10GB on some titles.

That's the beauty of building a PC, though. You can always upgrade later!

You know what? this is quite refreshing to see after all the RGB builds on here, the photography is amazing and cable management is on-point +1

Thanks, but to slightly disappoint you the build is somewhat RGB-ready as the case fans are are lit by RGB as well as the motherboard, however kept it all-white for a friend which he may disable due to PC being out of sight anyways.

Solid build! How are air cooled temps in that case?

Surprisingly not bad, CPU 55c GPU 70c max after 2hrs in game.

That's some slow RAM for a build that cost $1200

Can be upgraded but there is no bottleneck, it's more than enough for most of the games right now if you are not multi-tasking too much, besides you missed my description that this build is roughly £1000 range if I bought parts from several sites.

Nice build. How is the CPU temp on idle and load? I think the heatsink should be install on opposite side. The offset heatpipes should face the rear case fan not RAM.

Is your CPU cooler enough for your 8600k CPU? Because I'm going to build one using 8600k with my current H411R cooler, and I don't plan to OC the CPU.
