Part Reviews


One of the best CPU's I ever had I ccan overclock it to 4.5GHz and play all games on max setting with this

CPU Cooler

One of the best Liquid Coolers keeps my i5-6600K under 45c when overclocking


This MB makes it easy to overclock my CPU with game boost


This is the first DDR4 ram I ever had it runs fast and makes editing easy

Video Card

One of the best video cards I ever had I never overclock this thing because it does not need to yet I can play all the newer games on max setting and get like 50-80FPS

The cable management could use a bit of work, but otherwise it is a good build!

Sexy motherboard you have there, It would be great if you could take advantage of side panel to hide some cables, to make your components looks clean. Nice Build btw!

It appears your CPU temperature under load is incorrect. We can all dream our CPU's will max out at 31 degrees. :P

Anyways, solid case and storage choices. Solid overclock with a 120mm radiator. PSU seems way overkill even if you upgrade to SLI 970's.

Do some cable management, this case deserves it! :P +1

I'm going with 2 980ti's soon that way I got that PSU and ya I mess up the under load and I'm going to fix the cable soon I was in a hurry to try out my new CPU

SLI 980Ti's!

Excellent PSU choice then.

What resolution are you gaming at?

mattRlive submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

for now 1440P but soon I'll be doing 4K

Look into 1440p ultra wide. Two of my friends just bought the Dell 1440p ultra wide curved display. Seeing them in person honestly made me consider ultra wide for my next upgrade.
