Description

I wanted to create a machine, that would look like a basic workstation / light gaming pc from the outside, but was a monster inside.

Needless to say, I succeeded once again!

Part Reviews

CPU

Excellent, yet expensive CPU for gaming. It overclocks like a champ.

CPU Cooler

Beautiful, quiet and efficient. Better than Noctua, for me at least.

Motherboard

Absolutely beautiful design, delicate RGB lighting and great I/O.

Storage

THE SPEED, OH GOD THE SPEED. No, seriously, this is fast and reasonably priced.

Storage

Cheap, but not so fast SSD. Nothing wrong with that, though.

Video Card

I seem to have won the silicon lottery this year, because this non-OC card just went up through the roof when overclocking.

2100/8000, check the Unigine scores from extreme 1080p tests.

Case

Cute case with some cute rgb light shining in front. Horrible cable management, tempered glass is wayyyyy too dark. You can't even see what's inside without some bright RGB lights inside the case.

Power Supply

So. Much. Power. But why, you might ask... Well, for future proofing, ofc!

Operating System

Still better than Vista, amirite?

Keyboard

Been through a lot during these 2 years of torture. Not a single thing has been broken.

Mouse

Same as the keyboard. Great quality.

Headphones

Aaaand same as the keyboard and the mice. Great audio.

I don't know man.. The RGB case with a full sized window, 250W cooler, RGB lighting on the motherboard, and "RTX" lettering on the side of a full length GPU kinda kill the sleeper vibe..

Great build none the less.

Thanks for the compliment, but the sleeper part is in quotations, as you might notice. Sarcasm, baby.

Now you just need a better monitor, so you can use all that power.. :P

1440p gaming suits me quite well; Since it's a 144hz monitor, I appreciate the +100fps in most games that I play. :-)

Oh, yeah, I love 1440p. I didn't see that monitor there before? Thought you were still using a 1080p, which would be totally wasted on this build.. :)

Does the Dark Rock Pro 4 work well to keep your cpu cool enough to overclock it?

Yeah, it actually surprised me. I've always had Noctua coolers in my builds, but I wanted to try this one out. Idle temp is hovering around 37-43, aida64 rises it to 72. At the moment, I am running the cpu at 5ghz 1,32v stable.
