Hey all, 14 year old Redditor/PCPPer here with a build that I completed last year in November. I'll give an explanation for each of the parts, as well as 2 small descriptions.
As this build was completed last year, I've been far too busy with work to even think about uploading this to PCPP, not to mention I was afraid of getting tons of hate, and judgmental trolls because of my age. The build took me about a month to save up for, it would have been sooner, but I bought a few Developer HTC ones in that time, and since it was my first "custom" build, I didn't want to go all out with a High end build. The build was also originally going to be a streaming/gaming build, but I got threatened to be banned on twitch for streaming ghosts a month or 2 ago ._.
CPU - Was suggested by someone on Reddit back when I don't know when. It was an absolute beast when I was streaming. To the people who ask why I have no CPU cooler, it's because out here in Minnesota, our Winters are near -15f every day until March/May. And I wasn't planning on keeping this build for long.
Motherboard - When I originally bought this computer, I had no idea what I was buying. I thought the Micro Atx Motherboard was really big, until I saw it in person ._. It's an incredible MB, no doubt.
RAM - When I bought this, they were about 100-110$ on PCPP, at the time, I didn't realize there were cheaper sticks of ram that were practically the same.
HDD - Standard issue.
GPU - I've had a bunch of issues with this card, the first one was the black screens I was getting. A simple clean with my vacuum had it fixed and ready. Another issue was my Bottom DVI output stopped working. There were a few more issues, but I forgot what. All in all, this is a good card that stayed fairly cool, and I could barely hear it, unless it was on full load.
Case - This story is funny, so I went to Microcenter, to buy a Zalman Z9 when it was on sale for 20$, and the sales guy messed it up and gave me the Z12 Plus. I didn't realize this until I was home and I ripped the box off.
Case fans - Terrible, took them out right away. They were loud and obnoxious.
PSU - At the time, I didn't realize how big of a help a modular PSU was. Boy was I wrong.
DVD Drive - Bought it to install my disks and Windows 7. Works A-OK for that simple purpose.
OS - Hated windows 8 at the time.
Peripherals - Love the monitor, absolutely love the headphones, hate the mouse and keyboard.
Now for the 2nd description.
On this build, I was maxing out BF3 in 1080p, and getting constant 45-50 FPS. When I tried out the BF4 beta, I was barely getting 50 FPS on medium. This computer was mainly built to max out or atleast play on medium/high settings on most games, in 1080p of course. I had no problems with overheating, as the weather was already -1f outside in November. I was able to stream Black Ops 2 in 720p, 60FPS, while playing the game on max settings in 1080p, with an average of 60-90 FPS.
Now that this build is nearing it's end stage, I'll end up buying this http://pcpartpicker.com/p/30DvE build to suffice my Eye Candy needs.
I'll answer any questions in a little bit, heading to work right now.
