Hi everybody,

I'm using this PC as home machine, as a professional sound engineer to make sound designs, audio editing and occassional gaming. I plan to use this machine to play in the future, improving Video Card and Monitor, but now i'm done with ps4.

I found good prices with Black Friday deals in Spain.

8700 instead of 8700K? Yes, I don't need K, just a good response when audio editing whith core eating plug-ins.

The Video Card I installed is not listed on Pcpartpicker, is the KFA2 Geforce GTX 1050Ti 4GB OC LP. I don't need more, just playing PUBG and CSGO.

The water cooler is far of what I need, I know, but it looks amazing.

I'ts the first time I build a computer, and not the last! ;)

Part Reviews


A beast. Enough and awesome for non-fanatic with big purposes.

CPU Cooler

Keeps cool my processor (i7 8700). Never go further than 58º. Cons: Center radiator screws go in metal sheets and damage them. Too much noise, had to replace them with Noctua NF-A14


Good motherboard. Enough control, easy bios... Still not support for G.SKILL Trident Z RGB 3200 OC


Just ram. G SKILL software for RGB control does not detect the ram. Let's see with next bios updates.


Ultra fast booting. Ultra simple. Incredible.

Video Card

After 5 months using it I can say this is the best videocard quality/price ratio in the market. Playerunknowns High-Ultra 55-60 FPS @1080p.


Beautifull, enough connectors but... -READ THIS BEFORE BUYING WATER COOLER, it's a mission to fit 280mm radiators. Specially with one rivet I had to take out.

Power Supply

Top product. Good job. Plenty of cables in the box.

Case Fan

Incredibly low noise and moves a lot of air. Replaced Corsair H110i Stock fans.

Case Fan

Good airflow and low noise beyond 1500 rpm. Noisy at high rpm but low frequency noise, wich is not anoying!


5 star for the keyboard, 1 for mice. Had to thorw mice because of very imprecise and noisy scrolling.


Good feeling, precise, quantity of buttons.

Like the build. You could use a new monitor, maybe something with a higher than 1080 resolution for some added desktop real estate.

Nice build! What the max packet power consumption did you see with your 8700? Mine is very high. I am suspecting mine is defective.

Would you mind to run Intel tool to stress the CPU shortly to see what max package TDP you get? Mine is 117W.
