Used for SC2 and probably more games to come.

Hardware was all easy to install.

Software and Drivers were the challenge since I had to format a thumb drive and transfer files from CD

You are lucky!

iplayasax submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 days ago

Very lucky. It was an emotional roller coaster though. Couldn't get graphics card to display at first. Placed it in slot 2 and it worked. Then didn't realize i needed drivers for the hardware. Took a while before I realized I was an idiot :) now it runs great.

that can happen, That was the same when i built mine, it wasn't posting but the hue+ lights were coming on and so were the fans, but after swapping the ram dimms around it started working again.

how is the overclocking on that motherboard, I was going to use it but I am worried about the power phases

iplayasax submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 days ago

Wasn't planning on overclocking. My cousin works at intel and he was going to buy me an i7-7700 but they only had the 7700k in stock. Got the 7700k for 185 total.

Doesnt really matter.. the 7700K is faster than the 7700 even when it isnt overclocked

$28 for the NZXT liquid cooler?? For real??? Nice

Not a fan of the motherboard, I like the Asus Prime Z270-A, a lil expensive but a good board, considering rest of your build.

P.S: Really nice build.

P.P.S: What's with the tiny pics man, can't see nothing.

Ya i took the pics with my phone and uploaded to my discord server. Didnt trnsfer from discord well. Need to do a photo shoot and transfer from phone to pc. I traded an evo 212 cooler for the nzxt cooler with a friend. Evo cost me 28.

Inb4 Maniprelli does a crack down on your key pricing

Soul-D 1 point 6 days ago

Dude when did you buy the parts because those prices are messing with my head. Also the x61 is discontinued... So you bought it used along with some of the other parts I'm just saying for other people mark it as used

iplayasax submitter 1 Build 2 points 6 days ago

Exactly. Traded an evo 212 cooler for my friend's nzxt x61 because he upgraded to an rgb liquid cooker. He is going to use the evo for his gfs build. He also sold me 4 sticks of corsair 8gb 3000mhz for 150

iplayasax submitter 1 Build 2 points 6 days ago

Also didnt know there was an option to mark as used.
