A desktop has not been in our house for MANY years and wanted to change that ... im an old pc guy and tired of laptops. So my son and I have spent considerable time over the past many months looking into components for a build. Had no idea how what we were getting into but enjoyed learning and building this together;)
Spent a little time overclocking and settled on 4.5Ghz at 1.345V. Tested it overnight with good results so haven't increased it any further yet ... not sure if I will actually.
Wont make this long so here is a brief rundown: The build was fun and went smoothly - couldn't be happier. White and black theme. New white LED fans for case and SP fans for cooler. Monitor is Asus ROG PG279Q IPS (not in price list but awesome!). All prices include taxes and shipping. In process of building a stand to get computer off carpet. Sry if pictures are not the best. Son gets to use for school and game a good amount long as he keeps his grades up ... im an a**. I get to use for AutoCAD. We both would like to try BF1 ;)
A HUGE thank you to PCP and community! Really really REALLY helpful - did I say Really!?
All we need for now and easy to overclock.
BIG cooler but keeps cpu nice and cool.
Again, all we need and bios super easy to navigate. Good oc options.
Good to go.
FAST ... operating system boots in about 6 seconds.
Plenty of storage for our needs ... fast for hdd and good warranty.
Just kills it! Will add another in SLI down the road if needed.
Really like this case. Plenty of options and easy to build in. Also like that you can lift and move it from top of the case ... its the simple things :)
Quiet and look nice.
