Build

White Brick

by TheExuberantEpicBrick

Description

I am using this system for Mostly gaming, but I chose to buy a good, overclock-able CPU and Z170 board. The building went fairly smoothly. I built it with a friend and due to time restrictions and the fact that it was my first build, plus we goofed off a little, it took three days to finish. However, I actually had lots of trouble installing Windows 7 onto the computer. It took me about a week to actually have a working system.

A little benchmarking for you (to be updated)

CS:GO, maxed settings: ~140 FPS

Part Reviews

CPU

Who needs an i7 when you got this processor!?

CPU Cooler

Keeps things very cool.

Highly recommended

Motherboard

Bios was very tricky and gave me a lot of problems but other than that, it wasn't that bad,

Storage

Quick to boot and easy to work with. It's a good price for the capacity.

Video Card

Great gaming experience. I recommend it.

Case

Not bad. Case is aesthetically pleasing and not too hard to work in.

Power Supply

Premium Power supply. Fully modular, nice and easy.

Case Fan

Good little fan. I had to remove a case fan because it obstructed the placement of the motherboard. I just zip tied one of these to the grate and it works perfectly.

Have you benchmarked CS:GO with bots? Because you're supposed to be getting more framerates!

I benchmarked it in a multiplayer deathmatch, but would bots have made much of a difference?

A huge difference. Try turning on multi-core rendering.
