Description

Wow it's featured it means a lot guys! Thank's so much!

Man looking at this system my personal rig is so pathetic now! Well when i build my own system i diddn`t know what i was doing like i do right now ! I did some research and spent a lot of money back in may! Well i am still considered myself a noob but i think i did well this time!

Everything came out perfect diddn`t run into any issues, whole building process was super smooth!

CPU

I5 6600K what can i say about this guy he doesnt have hyper-treading but still rocking, i wanted to get something last for years with no issues for her 6600k is more then overkill for her needs. we can call this cpu pretty much future proof for her!!And the mobo had a little surprise for me !!

CPU COOLER

Deepcool Captain 120 mm white AIO the first thing took my attention was this cpu cooler is really eye catching and really complements my white build. and pump section glows white when its actually pumping water. Its gorgeous. Build quality is not great but it looks really cool. And of course temps are super low.

MOBO

Asus Z170-AR This is the best 120$ i ve ever spend on a piece of tech. First of all i had a good cpu-mobo combo deal at microcenter. I wanted to get z170-A but they ran out of stock so i stuck with this guy but i had no idea what i was putting myself into! Motherboard got an on board switch between air or water cooling i think its really convenient. But the part really amazed me is i decided to update bios before doing anything it was super easy but then i realize something at the system start it said %25 overclock!! this mobo automatically overclocked my cpu to 4400 Ghz and diddn`t even went over 2.100 W and automatically enabled 100.0 bclk frequency i think thats awesome!

GPU

XFX RX 480 GTR I couldve go with an asus white rx480 but i wanted to stick to 8gb for little bit more overclocking head! And jayzs video was pretty convincing lol!

PSU

Seasonic 650W 80+Gold 650w is way more then what she will ever needs but read that gold+ psu with more watts are more energy efficient and here we are a beautiful 650w psu!

MEMORY

Ballistix Sport Lt well its white !!

STORAGE

OCZ TRION 150 240GB Toshiba got my trust long years ago i had a laptop and before got stolen i put it through all kinds of stress tests never disappointed me one time i even dropped it nothing happened. If its Toshiba just buy it don`t worry!

Sorry for the long post. Peace!!

thanks for the feedback bud. yes i love the build. i ll definitely go with something similar next time when i update my own rig. yes gpu is great + u can get led fans and replace the fans if u wanted to

Do you by any chance know if the water cooling is absolutely necessary

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

no its not especially if you are not going to overclock your cpu. you can have aircooler and overclock your cpu watercoolers just keep your temps lower any temp under 80 is completely fine but watercoolers keep them between 30 - 60 degrees range

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

Amazing build, why the RX 480? You could of gone with something a bit more ... expensive greater performance like the GTX 750 Ti GTX 1060 or 1070. Though if you are mostly gonna play DX12 games, the RX 480 is great for that stuff.

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

i build this system for my wife and she plays mostly adventure games. so rx 480 is sweet spot for her actually i tested on overwatch and it runs great. but you are right i actually use a gtx 1080 on my own rig and i love it. i wanted to stay in a budget and have her something decent.

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

Thank you for a quick reply! Yeah, the RX 480 can handle most modern games. Since your wife most plays adventure games, the RX 480 is a great card to have (and future proof too, possibly).

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

Looks great. Everything works with the theme that you went with, and it looks like it stays pretty cool, hence the "Snow White" (hehe) +1

What is your take on noise compared to other AIO CPU coolers? (Everyone is talking about how good it "looks" ;-)

Nice build :-)

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

Well ı never heard any noise when pump is actually working the only thing I hear is the thermaltake fans. I have corsair h110 gtx cooler on my own rig and if I knew better I would go with these guys they are excellent aio.

How's the 480's temps? Considering it but wanting more info from other users. Just in case Jay got a unicorn

  • 41 months ago

Well these AMD cards runs hot so I set the temp limit 85 but it never saw 85 highest I ve seen 80 on heaven benchmark 80and below should be fine

  • 41 months ago

why the rx480 over the 1060?

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

Just a choice I really like the way xfx card looks and I know exactly 480 can handle anything on 1080p since it was 8gb I took it. This cards fans can be replaced also . they have led fans as well

  • 41 months ago

amazing build man! my question is how well does this card handle 1440p gaming? and what problems did you encounter during the build?

  • 38 months ago
  • 2 points

well i built this system for my wife diddnt really have chance to spend alot of time using it. depends what kind of games you are going to play ? it performs fine 1440p but depends on games. you pretty much gonna have to make a choice over rx 480 or 1060. i tested the card with overwatch and it performed pretty good even tho she is using a crappy korean monitor lol one think i am not very happy is overclocking headroom either i diddnt hit the gpu lottery or these cards are not overclocking well

  • 28 months ago
  • 1 point

well it handles pretty good but if i was building a system for myself i would go with a 1060 or 1070 probably she doesnt like shooting games so the system is more then enough for rpg`s or adventure games but i tested with overwatch and it performed perfectly
