Description

Build for extreme gaming, video editing, and streaming. This is an upgrade from my previous build and I kept the same parts except for the CPU + cooler, RAM, mobo, and added some different case fans.

My previous build: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/FpQV3C

FYI: The Noctua D15 is HUGE. The fan on top of the RAM sticks out about 2 inches, and I had it as far down as it could go. I had a side 230MM fan that came with the HAF 932 case that needed to be removed since the side fan was touching the cooler fan. The front cooler fan is now touching the side panel of my case. I also have a small table fan to take the place of my missing side fan haha.

I also bought all of my upgrade parts from Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals. Perfect time to upgrade as I saved about $200 total.

Solid build. Me likey. I would however get rid of those Creative T40s. The highs are too shrill and the amp is horrible. I have a pair of myself. I have a pretty similar build myself. Love the Trident X RAM, I got a H100i for the look (and performance).

I don't mind the speakers since all I expect them to do is put out some decent sound. I have a soundcard and the M50 for more serious uses. I only use the speakers to play background music while I work on projects or chilling.

Thanks a ton for showing me how horrendous that CPU cooler is on the MB and that it would have a problem fitting in any case. That picture alone is worth +++++

How's the Noctua nh-d15? Do you regret getting it? And is it THAT ugly like everybody says?

It does its job pretty well. Though, if I didn't buy it while it was on sale, I would probably have bought the H110 instead. The looks don't bother me as much since it's in my case and I can't really see it.
