Description

This is version 2.0 of this build: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/DnyXsY so if you want to read more about my original build check out the link. The changes are a new GPU sold my GTX 1070 and got a 1070 ti and made a little money due to the cryptocurrency craze (The reason the 1070 ti cost $225 is because I got my 1070 for $305 and sold it for $80 more than the new 1070 ti cost me ). Got a new 2560x1440 Samsung monitor for $130 which I thought was a great deal. The red on the GPU wasn't working with my black and white theme so I added a G12 and a H75 cooler looks nice and keeps my GPU nice and cool. I also added some RGB fans and I am waiting on a cable to sync them with my other light strips but right now I have them set to white.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU works great for everything I use it for which is mainly gaming. Even in 2018 it's still a capable CPU.

CPU Cooler

Works great on my GTX 1070 ti with the NZXT G12 bracket

CPU Cooler

Awesome cooler keeps my CPU nice and cool and runs quietly.

Motherboard

Amazing motherboard especially for the price I paid. It has all the features I need and does it's job perfectly.

Memory

It's ram works great what else is there to say?

Storage

Love Samsung SSD's always reliable and fast and plenty of storage for my needs.

Video Card

Amazing GPU and it handles everything I throw at it at 1440p

Case

Great case love the looks docking a star for needing to mod the front intake for airflow but I knew that when I got it.

Power Supply

Amazing PSU it's a SeaSonic so it's held up great over the years.

Case Fan

Great fans they are one the cheapest RGB fans available and they are also very quite.

Mouse

Love this mouse had it for years and works like I bought it yesterday.

Headphones

Amazing headphones most comfortable gaming headset I've ever used.

Custom

Great speakers especially for $5 though I wouldn't pay $100 for them like they sometimes sell for.

Custom

Amazing keyboard wish I could give it 10 stars it has so many features for the price I paid like individually addressable LEDs and you can re map the keys along with a mostly metal construction.

Custom

Honestly love this the ability to add water cooling to a GPU for under $100 is awesome.

Custom

For $130 this was a steal for a 2560x1440p monitor. The colors look great and even though its only 60Hz its great for the price.

Hi there, I too have a 1070ti in my build and would love to watercool it using the Kraken G12. I found your build, and i gotta say i'm loving the white theme. mine is a kfa2 sniper white variant, so your white build definitely pleases my eyes! Would love to know more about dem GPU temps ( with / without oc - prefferably with oc - max oc? ), stock cooled vs G12 watercooled and max oc. Any info you could give me would help a lot with my decision on whether or not to go the same route with my 1070ti. Cheers!

Even though many people have stopped playing Destiny I still love it and still really like playing pvp even if the waiting times to find a match kinda sucks due to the small user base now.

good build but you need to get that pc onto your desk. why are you keeping something to beautiful on the floor?

  • 25 months ago

I keep it on the floor because I feel like if I put it on the desk it will take up a lot of room on the desk and make stuff feel cramped and cluttered looking. I would like to get a side table or something to raise it up to desk height at some point.

Can I ask how you went about modding the case. I bought essentially the same case and was looking at doing so. I see the design you went with (NICE btw) but I was curious. Did you kind of just cut that out and put a netting or filter of some sort? Sexy build man, good job!

  • 25 months ago

Yeah just cut it out with a Dremel and used the included magnetic fan filters to add a filtered intake. I would put painting tape over it then cut it, I believe it keeps the paint from chipping when cutting the metal I saw a lot of people do this when cutting metal computer parts. Another thing is to get the reinforced cutting wheels for the Dremel and cut slowly to keep from destroying blades as fast.

Can you give me a run down on how you cut the front I want to do the same thing to my case. (we have the same one). So any specifics (for example is there a space in the front panel?) you can give me would be well appreciated.

Yeah like I told the guy above you I just cut it out with a Dremel and used the included magnetic fan filters to add a filtered intake. I don't know exactly what you mean by space on the front but you just take the front panel off (it pulls of) then cut what ever you want on it. I would put painting tape over it then cut it, I believe it keeps the paint from chipping when cutting the metal I saw a lot of people do this when cutting metal computer parts. Another thing is to get the reinforced cutting wheels for the Dremel and cut slowly to keep from destroying blades as fast.

This is a very late comment, but if you don't mind me asking. Why does the thing on the side of your AIO (Idk what to call it) look like it reflects the rgb. Because the one I have on my h100i v2 is silver and it looks super ugly. If you could point me to the mod you used that would be amazing!
