Description

This pc is primarily for gaming and audio production.

Planned to add another HDD and a external sound card next month.

Really EASY to build in the air 540, it's huge and super spacious. There's no where you can't reach, really.

Everything works perfectly except for the cpu, I was told that it's this "silicon lottery" thing that I got.

I ran my 6600k @ 4.3Ghz with 1.35V and it still crashes while running stress within the 10 minutes mark. Really disappointing but the temperature only peaks out at 60 degrees C max while stress testing with the Hyper 212X.

As of right now, I'm only able to run it stable @ 4.2Ghz with 1.275V.

Ram did really well, with enough enough I was able to run it at 3000Mhz.

Edit, manage to run my 960 at 1.51Ghz with my vram at 4.1. Temps peaking at 65 during test in Heaven 4.0.

This GPU can OC like a boss, no doubt.

Part Reviews

CPU

Run really well in games and application I use.

However, with intel aiming the "K" series skylake cpu for overclockers I must say I am very disappointed. I'm only able to OC the cpu to a maximum of 4.2Ghz and I even need to give it 1.275V for it to become stable.

CPU Cooler

Great for the price! My 6600k peaks at 60 C Max at 4.2Ghz during stress test

Motherboard

Great aesthetic, fit in my build really well. Didn't have any problem. Great bios as well!

Memory

No problem at all, with the new z170 platform I'm able to OC it to 3000Mhz

Storage

Really FAST SSD. Reboot only took 26 Seconds

Video Card

Fantastic card, Looks badass and perform the same.

Case

HUGE case. Very spacious so you wouldn't have any problem building it, no headaches for cable management as well.

Power Supply

Very nice, connectors light up when powered up, makes looking for cable easy but I doubt anyone would mess around with the cables while it's still running though. Needless to say, give a big plus to the aesthetic. Run really well with my overclocking

Good build but probably should have gone with a 380 but still a good build

Got the 960 purely for the aesthetic! Galax is trying to clear their stock so it's only going for 199 and the only games I play is dota and COD so yeah why not!

how's the motherboard? I've heard things about it not working after a couple days

I guess it's not really optimised for extreme overclocking. So far I have not encountered any problems yet

this is dope but shouldn't you return your CPU if it's not working as intended? if you dont wanna wait then perhaps you can time the RMA so if youre away for a week on holiday or something you can sort that out then lol

wouldnt of spent so much on case either, SSD would be awesome for music production multitasking/retrieving files all that jazz.

and the H7 CRYORIG (slightly better in looks/perfomrnace and slightly smaller) would of looked slightly better in your build i reckon. if you are to make another build I would recommened that

Very nice! I am so jealous the only way to get a Superflower PSU in America is to buy a re-brand that isn't even always made in the superflower factory.

Personally I think the original superflower psu is way nicer, the design is well complimented with the nature theme. Wanted to get the white version of it which is platinum rated but wel since it's going to be hidden away at the back I just went with this instead

Yeah, it blows that they do not sell them in the USA. Lol

For the oc have you tried changing the LLC or manually entering ram timings and speed. Any chip should hit at least 4.4ghz. You can safely go up to 1.4v if temps are less than 80c.

I'm surprised you only pulled 4.2 GHz. I got 4.5 easily without even changing voltage. After I played with that a bit, I am stable at 4.75GHz!!!

Wished I had chose a cooler with black top cover instead but I guess this will work for now!

and you are angry about 4.2 GHz with a ****** air cooler?
