Part Reviews

CPU

Intel never failed me, so i went with it again.

CPU Cooler

Works as intended. it keeps my CPU cool at 20°C idle

Motherboard

The sound card is amazing on this motherboard!

Memory

I still need to overclock it to 2800hz

Video Card

Sometimes the STOP FAN Led does not work as intended

Case

Building on this case was interesting and satisfying experiences, very easy to work on.

Monitor

Overall a decent G-SYNC monitor, but sometimes it switch back ON on it's own after i turn it OFF.

Keyboard

Don't like the Green Led

Mouse

Take some times to get use to it, but after that it's an amazing mouse.

Would've gone for an i5 6600k or even an i5 6500 because an i7 6700k doesn't gain too many more frames compared to the 6600k, I would've gone for a 1440p screen where you'd earn over 60 frames on most games, the 32GB's of RAM is unneeded because not many games use more than 8-10GB of RAM so 16GB would've sufficed, and I would've overclocked the processor to 4.4 Ghz but if your not comfortable then that's fine. All in all, great build and +1, would recommend getting black and red cables from cablemod.

I'm planning on getting some custom cables soon!

The I5-6600K lacks hyperthreading tech. The 6700K has a much faster single and multi-core speed. 32GB of RAM is necessary for builds where you'll be doing anything RAM-intensive such as video editing or 3D modeling/animation.

The PSU was a bit overkill though, unless you plan on heavily overclocking, but even then. Your build's estimate watt usage was only about 350W. At least you have plenty of room to upgrade your GPU in the future.

The Western Digital HDD was a bit overpriced for what you got. 4TB from reputable brands such as WD or Seagate typically go for $70 at 7200RPM on eBay.

"mainly for gaming."

i5 6600k vs i7 6700k, not that much of a difference other than 5-7 frames which imo, isn't worth one hundred dollars more, and hyper-threading doesn't make that much of a difference either. The 32GB of RAM is completely unnecessary because as he said, this is mainly going to be for gaming and nothing more.
