Description

***I found a really good deal on a 6700k, and added it to the parts list, though I decided not to add any new pictures considering the PC looks identical to how it did before.

The budget of this PC started out at around $700, and well... you see how that went. I'd like to thank the pcpartpicker community, as wellas various youtubers like Techsource, for the inspiration to make this PC happen. This is a bit overkill for my gaming needs, but I do plan on upgrading to a 1440p monitor soon. Enjoy, and feel free to comment any questions, thoughts, or concerns!

CPU: After seeing a great black friday deal, I decided to go all in and purchase a 6700k. Gaming performance is basically the same, but I am seeing significantly better render times on premiere.

CPU Cooler: This was a last minute decision but I definitely don't regret it! The deepcool captain 240ex looks great and is whisper quiet at lower rpm's.

Motherboard: I picked the popular asus z170-A. This is a fantastic motherboard, setup was a breeze, and I appreciate the white accents.

Memory: There is really not much to say about this RAM. It has a fairly standard speed at 2400 mhz and the white leds further add to the white theme I went towards.

Storage: For this PC, I opted for a 480gb SSD from OCZ. Its fast, cheap, and reliable!

Graphics Cards: After pascal launched, I was dead set on the GTX 1070. In around September I discovered this card and instantly purchased it on Newegg. The acoustics are great, and it runs all my games maxed well above 60 FPS.

Case: SInce early planing, I had always wanted to build in the Corsair 400c. The building process was pretty smooth, though cable management with extensions was a tricky job.

PSU: EVGA BQ: I bought this Power Supply in an attempt to save a few bucks, and I am actually pretty impressed. I can't hear it a majority of the time and semi modular design is also a plus.

MISC: Along with the essentials, I also purchased a Edimax wifi adaptor, Deepcool RGB 350, and a kit of White Cable Extensions from Phanteks.

Elegant af, how do you like that Corsair case? I've been thinking about getting it, also how are thermals on that water cooler?

I'd highly recommend both products. The corsair 400c is a fantastic case. The building process is fairly easy and cable management is a breeze (without cable extensions), but if I were to buy a case now, I would definitely go for an S340 elite. Regarding the AIO, the temps are usually under 60C at load and 26C at idle , although I've yet to overclock.

The case is overall very sturdy, though the side panel scratches very easily

Yes. At the time of purchase, the pc came out to just over $1300. Approximately $1320 I believe.

I love that the Corsair Carbide 400c doesn't have that beautiful white rad! My Deepcool Dukase V2 (while it does have a top mount instead), hides the rad a little. Beautiful build man!

WOW, What an amazing build. Its funny because I was looking for almost the exact same parts you used. Now do you think you might have any space to mount fans above the cpu?

  • 40 months ago

Plenty of room mate, you might also wanna replace the stock rad fans. They get pretty loud, especially under heavy load.

I wonder how my part list compares to yours for the same price. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/FxBbTH

Your computer is better than my initial build regarding part choice and price to performance. You were able to squeeze in more storage while making few compromises.

hello good sir, very nice work indeed. quick question, is a the white wiring from you re sleeving wires w/ the extensions you bought? Also, any issues with your psu being semi modular for this case? think im going with the same one

The white cables are extensions from cable mods. Regarding the power supply, it is overall a pretty good unit but I'd reccomended spending a bit extra on the 650gs unit or even the 650g2 (which is modular).

Great build. How come you have an i5 box in the pictures and no i7?

A friend of mine that works at intel was able to snag me an OEM verison of the 6700k at a great price a few weeks ago and I never bothered to change the picture

Nice build man, I was thinking of almost using the exact same parts. I was looking for a wireless adapter and was wondering if the Edimax wifi adaptor is good. Beautiful build.
