This new computer was built for the purpose of gaming and maybe some photoshopping here and there for fun. But this little baby is definitely gaming concentrated.
Keep in mind that the GPU that I have in there right now was purchased sometime last year for a price of $190 so it was a steal. The card overall can run my games in max settings with no problems. If I had the same old card from my first build of 5 years old, I probably would have went with an R9 390x or something along those lines.
I did a slight modification when it came to mounting the SSD. I basically clipped off the two prongs at the end of the SSD bracket and smoothed out the edges. Then proceeded to secure the bracket in that slot with a ziptie. It was a simple easy modification and the best part is, it allows me to showcase it off. I get to see it perfectly through the window panel.
I plan to add some more LED to the right side of the case due to the lacking of accent light over there. I did not account for the CPU cooler to block off the white LED fan completely. Whoops my mistake haha.
Oh also, the name Tachikaze is a reference from Bleach that is wielded by Kensei. A zanpakuto sword that when in its second form (shikai) changes into a knife. This knife is small but it is crazy effective and powerful. That is what I feel about this build. Small but yet super efficient. Not to mention to release into this form Kensei commands it to by saying this, "Blow it away." I find it fitting for this build because of all the fans and how it really blew me away with it's performance.
Truly satisfied and definitely upgrading this baby in the near future. Thanks for taking a look guys! Suggestions, comments, advices, or whatever are welcomed!
I got this for it's overclocking headway and its future relativity.
I had a liquid cooling cooler for my first build and decided I would try for an air cooler for this one. They are more cost efficient and so far, I am really loving it.
A great mobo from a great company. Gigabyte knows how to deliver a good board that encompasses gaming.
1866 to me is the sweet spot for ram. I love the look of these and it overall fits really well with the build red scheme.
I got this because, of course, it matches with the ram sticks AND it runs a little faster than the Samsung 850 Evo. I'm a sucker for that little edge. Boots up my OS in a matter of a snap. Won't even let the windows icon form.
Extra side storage for all the other stuff. What's more to say about it?
So I got this GPU back when Watchdog released which was around last March or May whatever. The reason why I got this was because the GPU price alone was $190... That was a steal that I could not let up haha. Overall great card and can push out performance.
I wanted a small form factor case that had plenty of ventilation + filter. Also to have plenty of air flow space. This case had it all and I am very satisfy with this case.
Well... It is a power supple. I have a good relation when using EVGA PSU. They make quality ones in my eyes. The reason for this specific model was because it is slightly smaller than the G2 which gives me more room for cable management in the case.
Shhhhhh... you hear that? Of course not.
Wait wait... I don't hear a thing... Excellent!
A white LED AF fan for accent lighting as the exhaust fan.
