This is my second PC build and an upgrade from my i5 3570k / GTX 970
The goal for this build was to make a PC for 144hz high FPS gaming and some photo editing. I wanted this build to look clean so I spent a little extra on white parts/sleeved cables. My main reasoning for this parts list was waiting for items to go on sale then building around them.
I do not plan on overclocking so I am using stock CPU and case fans which seem to work fine, the fans are noisy but it does not bother me with headphones on.
Everything is working great, unfortunately I was unaware that newer Nvidia cards do not support Dual Link which is required for 144hz on my monitor (BenQ XL2411z). This means I will have to change to a monitor that uses DisplayPort.
