Description

This system was build to play current popular FPS games like Fortnite, Battlefield, PUBG, CoD, etc. at 1080p with nice high framerates without breaking the bank too badly, and also with a red/black theme, to which I almost contributed a bit more than I intended...

Full build log written up in the album over on my Facebook page.

Highlights are:

  • don't believe Cooler Master's instructions for mounting this cooler (which is actually the H411R not the T4), and if you want it to fit on 115x then set it up as if for 1366.

  • watch out for the tiny samurai hiding somewhere in the top of the case... that, or some sneaky sharp metal.

Cheers all!

Yes, for this system I included a Windows 10 Pro key.

Great! I think I will actually build this then. For it’s price, it’s a lot cheaper than th prebuilt computers.

Unless I'm missing something, the price of this build does not include the cost of the GTX 1060. That's a substantial omission!

Hi, you're not missing anything, it's just that PCPP displays prices based on your region and selected sellers, so it is probably that this card isn't currently for sale from any selected sellers in your region and so is showing up in the parts list without a price.

Thanks! That explains it.

Dejavu, I must have seen this on Facebook. Nice job. Blood is just added red to the system.

Thumbs up.

Ha, yes, I'm posting to both PCPP and FB, so not a glitch in the Matrix ;-)

Another question: Does it have wireless internet connection?

No wireless on the motherboard, no, so I'd recommend using a USB dongle or PCIe add-in card for that. A basic but adequate one should be quite cheap.

My opinion is that paying for on-board wireless only makes sense from a value perspective if you also want/need the other features that wireless-enabled boards, being higher-end boards generally, tend to have (like more SATA ports, fan headers, better audio, etc). If not, then just buying a wireless solution separately is the best option, I think.

Hey, thanks very much, and yep, will keep in mind for the future that the red stuff stays inside :-) Or maybe I should give all my systems a little dab, a bit like signing them!
