Description

It was either this or my first car, I think I made the right decision. I'm planning on upgrading to a 1080 ti and a 1440p ultra wide when they come out. After I originally got all the parts I put it together and it didnt post, i ended up moving the ram and doing basic diagnostics and turns out the motherboard only had one working ram slot, 1 month RMA later and all is resolved.

Part Reviews

CPU

I used this in my first build so I don't have anything to compare it to, but it's fast and definitely gets the job done.

CPU Cooler

Keeps my 6800k cool, it's quiet and I got it for <$100, No complaints here!

Motherboard

GREAT looking motherboard, the carbon fiber is a bonus and the XMP lights on the bottom are always red which sucks in my blue build, it's not too noticeable though. Overlocking is easy but you can't change the core clock without using (+/-) in bios, so don't take more than a day to realize that like I did. smh.

Memory

Good ram for $75, I haven't used faster ram but I can't imagine it's a noticeable speed difference. Love the sleek black design, everyone knows good looking parts make your computer run faster.

Storage

Big and fast, works like a HDD should.

Video Card

Awesome video card, a bit OP for 1080p but it definitely gets the job done at >60fps. 4 stars because the fan headers on the card don't actually work or at least they didn't for me.

Case

HUGE case, I love the design and the multicolor led strip is a nice touch. a breeze to build in.

Power Supply

I can't really compare it to anything because this is my first build, but it gives power and the cables are nice. Works.

Nice. You can always use the bus system if you got one! And you won't need to pay insurance and fuel :)

Sweet build +1.

May I ask what you use this rig for? Gaming, rendering, video editing, etc..

Toxic_Cobra submitter 1 Build 2 points 29 months ago

gaming, I know the 6800k is overkill and a 4-core 6700k would've been cheaper and more effective but **** it, i only built this to be OP and it is.

DayQuil_Man 1 point 29 months ago

Haha, I don't judge, I only asked because I'm planning on a similar build. I totally agree with you, I'm going to be gaming too.
