Description

This is my first PC build sorta started off as a pre built but I immediately started put up parts in to it. Let me know what you think and things that I should look to upgrade. Also keep in mind nothing in this build what bought at full price. Everything in the build was bought on sale or from another person or friends helping friends out.

I feel like the h80 is a bit overkill for a 7700 non K. Something like a hyper 212 evo would do just fine.

You could say the same about the 3000mhz RAM on a locked motherboard

Although he needs to get a new PSU, that one is ****.

good observations. I feel like he could have done better on the video card but it still turned out decent.

Agreed. That thing is literally a ticking time bomb

Congrats on your first build!

What should you upgrade? I think that really depends on what you do with your system. I think you have a pretty decent platform to spring off of.

Let's say it like this... If I were to look at your computer components and figure out what you did with it... I would guess that this build was a mid-range system used for internet, Facebook, etc. and some modest gaming.

I mean, mine started off with a Stock Intel Cooler, Pentium and GTX 1060, and then rigged my H100i (old one looks like yours a bit) to the Pentium, then 6 months later, got a new mobo, 2 months later a i7-7700k. and then 24 days later, new ram. and then 2 months later a SSD. I mean, that is pretty much me in a nut shell, a ever slow evolving boring life. Also, later on got a 650PSU, 400-430 is fine. I ran mine at 5.1GHz and a GPU with extreme clocks, and my ram that is meant for 2400, at said "3600" So you are fine, but any time down the line, you just need a better GPU, when the time comes, so far, don't worry about anything, once you get a high wattage GPU, consider something like a EVGA 850 Bronze for like 84$

Should have never sold my GTX 1080 I won, but I sold it for 900 oh well, I never even used that money to fund my build, I don't even know where it is lul.

Lots of people in this comment section need to relax. The only thing I would suggest is a different power supply. A Corsair CXM 550W is a good choice that won't break the bank and gives you plenty of wattage headroom for upgrades in the future. While the H80I may be overkill for a locked chip it looks nice and having cool temps is never a bad thing. I run a 280mm AIO on my I7-7700 because it looks nice and in the future when I upgrade it I can keep the cooler.

The issue is that 120mm AIOs are not worth the cost

Generally they are not, but if you have the money and it fits your needs there are greater sins in the PC building world.
