Works great. No problems at all as of now.

I also think you are just reading the reviews that are negative. If you don’t like it or the pump fails obviously return it. :)

But the kraken works great and the pump makes no noise even on performance mode.

that CPU cooler makes putting in the CPU power pin a *****. I used it twice for my brother and neighbor. I would urge you to consider an addition of a 250GB SSD for the OS and games you play often, the difference between a SSD and HDD is HUGE!

If you really want to splurge, grab a Samsung evo ssd, however Crucial isn't as "fast" (use that term lightly, its still super speedy) as a Samsung, but is much cheaper.

Nice build!

I would also try and fix some of the cables hanging around. Makes the build look better, and doesn't attract much dust and create heat.

front

the way I should have done it would be a top-front rad and then on the bottom front have a fan to pull in air to help cool the GPU down a bit more.

from what he said to me; he wants the build to last. SO I can see why he got a platinum high wattage PSU.

that was my biggest problem. I think I should have gotten a single fan rad rather than a dual fan rad. I would have liked to have at least one fan on the bottom to put in cold air and have two fans at the top and back blow it out rather than two fans for the rad and two fans blowing air out.

I should have waited for the G.Skill RGB RAM but I jumped on a decent deal from corsair for some white LED ram.

Btw, you should grab some NZXT Aer RGB fans.

I like the keys the Macbook Pro has. The keys make a nice click noise, but it is not super load, and the keys are low profile, because I am a little bit of a lazy typer I like to slide my fingers across the keyboard rather than picking them up... :)

Although, I did end up getting a mechanical logitech RGB one for Christmas so I am not going to just not make good use of it! :P

Honestly, I feel as if that cpu will be fine for 95% of modern games. I think the only time you will see bad FPS is if you play a game that uses the cpu instead of the gpu such as SW:Empire at War or other super old games!

Have fun with the new PC!

If you end up having sopme problems with the GPU, I would suggest you get the 950. I used it for my brother and he has no problems playing any games. I also used the 1050ti for my friend and even though it gets a bad rep for being more money for less performance, I haven't had a problem with it.

Nice build, have fun! Welcome to the #PCMasterRace

You pay for "Apple" and everything that comes with it. I see where you're coming from but then I also love Apple and their software. I own a 27 inch iMac and I have it set up right next to my windows rig. The windows rig obviously has more use out of it, but when I want to watch some TV, edit some videos, listen to music, or even use it to text my friends from my computer rather than finding my phone it is nice. I got it a while ago when they released snow leopard and I still have no problems with it. I guess it's up to the user in the end.

The red LED in the back of the monitor really adds to the effect. Awesome job! +1

For RGB, I suggest the Hue + and NZXT Aer RGB Fans. The Hue+ allows control of the RGB fans via Cam + and the Hue+ comes with (5 I think) LED strips. The Hue + would need to be mounted next to your SSD.

I would fix the cables. The cpu power cable is especially needing some work. Move it above the cpu cooler and tuck it towards the back of the case parallel with the fan's side

the red RAM and GPU bother me with the blue light, but nice cable management which a lot of new-pc builders struggle with.

How come you didn't go with a 1060? It's less money on average and has better performance from my experience.

Nice build anyways!!! +1

A whole gigahert in an overclock??! I can't get my i7 6700K passed 4.6 GHz and i am water cooling my CPU (Not that I need to, I just wanted to see how far I can go)...

Show us some more pictures!

Edit: I was looking at some videos, turns out its common. Lol. Enjoy the build!

Any reason you got a K series CPU but a B Series motherboard? Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think you can overclock your CPU on a B series motherboard, you need a Z series.

My first build I got a non-Z series mobo and a k-series cpu and I didn't know any better.

Gotcha! I completely understand with not needing an OC. The monitor is still pretty solid. 144Hz is amazing step-up from 60Hz!

Enjoy!

Overclocking is super easy with the intel core series. All you need is to download intel XTU, bump the multipliers for the cores up and save it. Every time windows starts, the CPU will be bumped up to that set GHz you wanted and if you end up going to high where the CPU crashes, then the program reverts the changes next time the computer turns on so no damage is done. Oh well, next time!

Nice build, very clean, cable management is very nice. I would have gotten a different monitor w/ Gsync or drop the free snyc to save money.

OriginPC has some nice computers, but the laptops are heavy. I currently own a Series 9 with a GTX 980, i7 6700K and a m.2 SSD w/ HDD. Very durable, and plays anything I want with 60+ FPS. I currently use it for when I go over to a friends house or vacation.

The series 9 is more in your price range, however the series 10 ones are a bit more expensive, but have a GTX 1080 and the new kaby lake processors.

This is the one I would get for mobility and performance reasons. https://www.originpc.com/gaming/laptops/evo15-s/ It is more expensive but I think would be worth it in the long run. They also have cool decals for the lid of the PC. :)

You should worry more about the resolution of the monitors. If you have 3 4K 27-inch monitors compared to 3 1080p 27-inch monitors you will need a better GPU. (Assuming you are going to have the monitors all display 4K game/video output.) If you only use the desktop for office work, HD videos (1080p) on youtube, netflix, etc... then a single GPU of really any variety will suffice. If you decide to get into 4K resolution then I would get a more hefty GPU such as the 980/1080.

With a budget of $2000 you shouldn't worry. You have more than enough money to make a good build. Here is what I am using right now: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/T8Ty8K

tl;dr The gpu will depend on how many pixels need to be pushed. The more monitors, the better the GPU. The higher the resolution, the better the GPU needs to be.

Edit: If you want, just upgrade the GPU in your current system. If your budget is $2000, then pick up 1 (or 2 for SLI) GTX 1080's and plug them into your rig!

Look into Origin PC or other gaming PC vendors for a new laptop, or build yourself a really nice desktop. You can easily create a i7/GTX 1080 with good amount of RAM and SSD for $2000.

I got a 1050ti for a pretty good price. Good bang for my buck.

But yeah, I guess you're right. Paying for the 1050ti full price is bad.

I can't speak for him, but I got extra thermal paste when I bought my parts just so after some years I can re-apply the paste. I also have some for when I disassemble a computer I have paste to put on the water cooler if I reuse it, or if I decide to swap my processor.

Does not affect the performance, once everything is on and running you don't really notice a difference. I would go ahead and still use the cooler and RAM. There is enough clearance. I did not have to force the RAM stick or cooler in at all, however, install the RAM after the cooler is installed.

I do not know much about fans other than I have all top fans on exhaust (hot air rises) and bottom fans on intake. And I make sure that the fans have great reviews. Sorry, I don't know much about fans!
