Description

What do you use the machine for?

I use this build for Video Editing, Music Production, and of course, A LOT of Triple A Games.

CPU

I overclocked my 1600 to 3.7GHz with 1.30V. In order to get 3.8, I would have to change voltage to 1.37, which isn't worth it. (waaay too much for only 100MHz more.)

GPU

I kept my GTX 1060 stock since it is Overclocked by the Manafacturer. It is OC'd 100MHz more than other GTX 1060s on amazon in this price range ($250)

RAM

I chose 2x4GB 2800MHz because it is a really high MHz ram for the same price as a 2133 and a 2400. At the time, there weren't 2933 in this price range, so I don't regret getting it (But now there is, but it still doesn't change my perspective since a GTX 1060 won't have a massive FPS difference with different ram speeds.)

Motherboard

I chose this motherboard because I liked the look of it :p The mobo also has 4 ram slots so I can add another 8GB in the future since games like Star Wars Battle Front 2017 and BF1 requires it.

PSU

I got a 500W since it can carry a 1600 OC, 16GB ram, GTX 1060 Factory OC, etc. It could also have potential on a RYZEN 1700 and a GTX 1070. I won't be getting those parts till a 2019+.

Storage

1TB, cause why not.

Case

Beautiful MATX case. Big window, looks like tempered glass PC case. Space is amazing. Cable management panel is kind of bad. It can fit .75-1inch width of cables MAX. This PC is beautiful though!!

Fans

2 KINGWIN intake, 1 rear. Give my system cooler air since it's OC'd. The front fans are 64CFM each! They were only $4.99 each too!!

Other

I got a PWM fan splitter to run 3 fans since the MOBO only allows 1 chassis fan connector. They all run at 100%.

Extra

This build took me 5 hours. If you would like to see a walkthrough of me building this PC, Check out my video!

Damn boi, congrats. A 12 thread, 1080p ultra machine for this price is impressive :D.

However I would say a $50 ssd would be a good idea

Yeah. I am 100% considering that :) Maybe 128GB at least.

From my experience all SSD'd are fine when starting out, but if youre migrating windows from a HDD to an SSD, get a samsung SSD.

They have the best migration software. Highly recommended! Also you have the choice to go for the samsung 960 evo 250gb. Its an nvme drive (stupidly fast) and will slot right into your MOBO :)
