I wanted to build a gaming desktop. This is my first build. The case is a little small especially with the H100i v2. I had to mod the case so the water cooler could ventilate. I overclocked the 6700k to 4.6GHz @ 3.25V. It runs games like a champ never going above 80 degrees C at full load. The 1060 runs at 60 degrees full load. The Asus VG248QE looks nice, and never having a 144Hz monitor before made me feel like I missed out on a great experience. Mind you, you have to adjust the monitor settings because the stock setting make it look pretty ugly at first. The speakers, headset, mouse are great. The only thing about the mouse is that it's software is limited in customization with the LED. The two ssd's make small tasks lighting fast with only a 3 second startup to desktop. Overall, the build came out nicely even though it had it's challenges.
Runs great, good for OC, and running modern games! Got it on sale for 275$
Keeps my OC'd processor from going above 70 degrees C. Got it referbished for 75$ and works great and runs pretty quiet unless under full load.
Great SSD! Gets me from startup to the desktop in about 3 seconds! Got it on sale for 70$
Great SSD! Helps run my games and small tasks very quickly. Got it on sale for 250$
A great card! A bit pricey but it outperforms every other GTX 1060 in effieciency and cooling. It runs at 60 degrees C at full load, and runs my 1080p 144Hz monitor with no problem.
A bit small especially with a water cooler. But I was warned that it may not fit. After some modding this case looks great and keeps my components cool. Could use a bigger window for the side panel, but I got it on sale for 32$ so no complaints.
Great supply! Came with enough wires for what I needed and I could leave out the one's I didn't need. Got it on sale for 60$
Good monitor, it's stock settings make it look ugly. But after some tweaking the colors and display really shine. I got it on sale for 230$ I still think it's a little over priced but it's still a good monitor.
Im used to a laptop keyboard so hitting esc is a pain. But overall the keybaord looks and feels great! Very responsive!
Great mouse! Cheap and comes with and the functions and features of a high end mouse. Only complaints are the software which lacks user friendliness in customization and the plastic pads that come with the mouse mess the lazer sensor up.
Sounds phenomenal! Great headset, and doesn't hurt ears after extended wearing. The only personal taste I have is that the mic LED should light when unmuted, not when muted.
Great speaker system! Bass and speakers sound awesome! I love the extended turn dial for volume control. As an electrical engineer I would've like the center of the turn dial to be a mute button and a customizable LED would've been nice. Besides the personal touch it's a great system for the price. Got it on sale for 36$
Great mouse pad! It's big enough for my mouse movements and the stiching looks good. The pad has a great feel to it.
