Description

I built this PC in a span of 3 months. I am aware that I could've gotten better parts but, ya boy was on a slight budget as for I am a part-time student and employee. I do plan on overclocking but that'll be further down the road when I learn how to do so. Anywho take a look at my build, criticize kindly please. Let me know what's up. Thanks

"slight budget" posts $2,000 build

Jokes aside, it's a super solid build. Always been a huge fan of that case. What were your deciding factors on that mobo?

I was trying to keep it under 2,000 but ended up going overboard. I was thinking of a Asus or a cheaper msi mobo but then I found this MSI mobo as a good balance.

Good part selection. Hard to dislike a build with the same CPU and GPU as me. Make sure you use EVGA's Precision OC to Auto-overclock the 1070Ti for you. Although it's an aftermarket card, NVidia didn't allow any 1070Ti's to be sold with overclocks. You should be able to set CPU voltage to 1.35 and get 5.0Ghz, and then slowly taper the voltage down to what works best. Just make sure when you overclock that you keep the settings for a while and run benchmarks before you make changes. Sweet build!

5 GHz!? This chip can achieve that? Geez I hope I can do this correctly. Thanks for the advise and checking out my build.

I've had 5.3Ghz Stable but it's not worth running that 24/7. There's actually no need to Overclock the i5 8600K when it's paired with a 1070Ti, the CPU has plenty of headroom while the GPU is being maxed out.
