Description

... and another build log!

Posted this computer about a week ago, however to be as my wife would like it to be we had some parts missing, including some sleeved white cables (extensions in this case) silent operation fans and some LEDs

In the end this build is deadly silent and makes cold fusion look possible in a near future! xD

My wife plays Civ V and Cities Skylines, and Skylines is quite a demanding game, can play both maxed out 1080p@60Hz not even 1 frame drop with no problems at all!

Enjoy!

Nice build.+1 from me. What extensions are you using?

Cheers for that! Links are perfect. Definitely a good option to go with for a cleaner build. Not a bad price either. Just need to work out which ones I need now.

You're more than welcome!

In my own build I got full sleeved kit, but because is a full modular PSU and in my case I needed some "special" cables with capacitors. Got them directly from CableMod but they are also available from Scan.co.uk now. They also have really nice quality sleeved sata data cables :D

Build is here: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/DXD8TW

However extensions are cheaper if you don't need or have the full extension of the cables showing :D

Give me a shout if you need help! I'm addicted to PC build projects xD xD ... and the bug is spread here at home!

I've got an evga supernova fully modular PSU. Think I'm looking at around £100 for full kit from memory. Need a GPU and then a hue+ to finish my build before posting on here. Never built a PC before but def got the PC bug now. Thing I'm going to wipe an old notebook and install Linux on it to play alongside my new build.

Like to make builds specific for the purpose! This one is actually above the expectations :) Skylake is much more powerfull than I could ever imagine! xD

even on a dual core, I think I'll build something very similar to this, I just can't decide between this CPU or the i3 6100

  • 37 months ago

i3 6100 is better :)

+1 great budget build! Though that CPU will never get over 40C running full tilt on the stock fan.

Tks :) never tried the stock cooler to be honest... but with the H55 is like cold fusion xD

MSI H110M Eco

https://eu.msi.com/Motherboard/H110M-ECO.html#hero-overview

Really nice, and more than enough for what is running, if you have even an i5 or i7 nonK with up to 2 Sata SSD/HDD and a dedicated PCIe sound card will run everything with no bottleneck at all

  • 41 months ago

Oh I meant how do you like it? any bad or good?

  • 41 months ago

I'm a bit suspicious to speak about MSI (and Corsair) xD

Huge fan of both, for the motherboard... all the construction and lanes look superb in terms or design and architecture, the mobo itself looks really nice and clean, performance and chipset have loads of possibilities and in the end MSI is on the marked for maannnnnyyyyyyyy years with specialized products and they always prove to be reliable and quality above average ;)

The mobo also have a low carbon foorprint... no LEDS or fancy stuff (that I just added later xD) but anyway have one of the best power management systems I've ever seen! They also have an ECO Series with H170 chipset if you need more PCIe lanes like for more sata drives etc... but the H110 is more than enough in most of the cases for a single GPU setup, one dedicated high end sound PCIe sound card and up to two sata sdd/hdd drives will handle everything just perfect :)

Thanks on the info! It seems good for its price.

I have the MSI z170A-G43 plus motherboard in my build, and I love it. It looks really good, all black and it have all the features i needed for only like 115€. It has been working perfectly so far. Im not a huge fan of msi "gaming" series tho, but i really like the pro series.

oh btw I have the same ram as you, but the 2400Mhz version.

I'm using the Z97M on mine, but to be honest... I prefer 100000000 times more a discreet look like this one I made for my wife :)

This is my build: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/DXD8TW

Ok nice :) planning on a budget build.

Definitely you'll have loads of room for a really good build with an under £50 mobo like this one :D I would say my best choice in the market for the price range at the moment (taking aside the fact that I'm an MSI fan xD).... oo wait... only Corsair have fan(s) xD xD

... no... unfortunately I don't make any profit from advertising this two brands xD

  • 41 months ago

haha xD yeah! you could ask msi and corsair for some free stuff for advertising xD

Sweet build! Absolute overkill on the CPU cooler though.

Actually got the new Corsair H45 but had the intel bracket missing :( contacted the supplier and they said corsair will send one... because it uses the stock AMD mount and I have and AMD at home with the H55 just swapped them :D

Anyway... the price of the H45 (new Corsair entry level) is better than any other air solution in the market in price/performance and in this case I'm quite limited in choices because of the space

I find it strangely satisfying that your Logitech speakers color match your PC.

I like the very consistent theme-ing. Does the side window scratch easily ? Thinking of building one of them carbides...

I have two AIR240's at home a black and a white, until now not even a scratch but I'm a bit picky with them as well xD

Im confused on why you are cooling a Pentium processor, with AIO liquid cooler. I thinking it was for the very little amount of sound it would create

  • 36 months ago
  • 2 points

Hi Lukehans,

You're right with the sound levels as this computer is crazy silent but also the comparison between the promotion price I got the Corsair H55 ($25 brand new in sealed box) couldn't find any AIR cooler cheaper with identical performance to fit the AIR 240.

Thanks!

not sure why you would use a pentium with a gtx 950, but cool build!

  • 35 months ago
  • 1 point

I would say they match up fairly well. The 950 is a pretty low power low spec GPU and the G4400 is a low power low spec CPU. Your question would make more sense if you said; "not sure why you would use a GTX 950 with a pentium, but cool build" as the pentium is much more powerful than that GPU.

It blasts all my wife's games :)

She plays Cities Skylines and Civilization VI... all maxed out 1080p with 60Hz monitor and this build was in a budget... an i3 6100 would be the double of the price and the difference is to have multi thread... that games simply don't use :)

Tks!

Really nice looking. Didn't know a 950 could look so sexy.
