Description

I'm quite happy with the end result, besides the fact that I definitely went over my original budget. Having come from pre-built PC's and a laptop directly before this, my fps has never been smoother and I'm finally able to enjoy a lot of my favorite games on better settings. I originally intended to wait till the new line of GPU's dropped but my laptop died and I figured what the hell, no point in waiting any longer. If all works out I'll trade up through EVGA's stepup program.

I'm about to build my first PC ever. My original budget was 1200, then 1400, then 1500, now 1700. It's really hard to stick to your budget because there's always that part that is just 30 dollars more but so much better. And then you'll just keep finding parts that are like 20 dollars more but so much better, and it just keeps going on and on until you finally order the parts.

But anyway really clean build, loving the white theme BTW!

If you only have 1 HDD, you can move back the decorative panel and use the 2 HDD mounts that don't require sleds on that wall that you can move back to showcase your fans. The manual of the Define R6 should tell you how to do that.

Nice build, also how fast is the 970 Evo, and is it easy to make it your boot drive?

would there be a reason it wouldn't be easy to make it your boot drive? i've never used an m.2 drive but i imagine it's the same as designating a regular SSD as your boot drive no?

i have heard you need a bios update or something or some bios configuration, I might be wrong but thats what I have heard.

I had 0 issues at all. Incredibly fast, boot time is incredible in comparison to my old pc but I'm coming from a harddrive before this.

Hi, Very nice build. I was wondering, did you have any clearance issues with the 5 1/4 inch drive bay and your 3 120 mm fans in front? This is very close to a build I'm planning, I just want to use a manual fan controller in the 5 1/4 inch drive bay. (I'm old school that way).

Thanks again for sharing your build.
