I built this machine after finding this website and seeing all the cool custom build PC's. This is my first ever PC build.Always wanted my own gaming rig had a hp envy 17.3 inch laptop before that i was using for gaming and it just couldn't keep up. Build took me over 3 months to build and gather funds for the GPU as that was the most expensive part. 980ti smahses through games like knife to butter, no bottlnecking , no screen pixelation just smooth intensive gaming.
Went for i7 6700k reason being was fastest speed CPU at the time didnt want to overpay for a x99 chipset, plus 4GHz is plenty at stock with no need for me to overclock. Also
case-NZXT H440 WHITE- Absolutely massive case with loads of room asu can see from the GPU in it that its huge, loads of room for cable routing and if u take out all unused hdd bays u get better airflow and space for water cooler pipes
ASUS SABERTOOTH Z170-S Bought this MOBO in a bundle deal came with the white camo ram , definitely worth it was a flip of coin whether to get z97-saberooth with i7 4790k but after priced up was only £20 difference so thought it would be a better upgrade.
16gb ram plenty of room for gaming and doing other tasks required in back ground
water cooler- Went with a water cooled all in one with the Kraken x61 , first one shorted out on me and had to get another to replace , but apart from that had no issues and keeps cpu very cool even when gaming never reaches past 40'c.
HDD/SDD 1TB for films and normal stuff 250GB ssd for games and OS boots up pc in 6 seconds faster without login screen
psu Corsair 1000hxi- Bought more power than I actually needed for this build but gibes me room to buy another GPU in the future and SLI without having to upgrade PSU , better to buy it when u have funds rather than when you don't.
GPU- Gigabyte 980ti Extreme 6GB version , is a beast as i said like a knife through butter when it comes to FPS. Haven't over clocked yet , new to this really not had a use for over clocking yet. Smashes CS-GO with 270FPS average 300FPS max. RGB lighting on fans and wind force logo is a plus fit nice with my build and temps are low , around 35'c when idle 45'c when under load.
Rest of stuff purchased was mostly for aesthetics looks and colours wanted a nice clean build stayed with colour scheme white and black as seen many builds wth white schemes and think they look great.
