This is my First Ever PC build and Im pretty Excited about this because its a beast gaming and workstation Computer.
CPU: I chose the Skylake i7 6700k because its the most mainstream/ popular cpu out to date. And having the unlocked capability offers cpu overclocking to the extreme, even though its nothing compared the the 6 and 8 cores.
CPU Cooler: Was deciding to get a liquid cooler, but budget cut short so went with the Cryorig H7 over the Cooler Master Evo 212 because it looks more appealing and test proves that the H7 cools the cpu more better, plus the build is black and white themed and having the white 120mm fan makes it more better.
RAM: Decided to go with the Crucial Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 16GB (2x8GB) 2400MHz sticks, more or so its white themed and it was a reasonable price.
MOBO: Choosing the MSI Z170A Krait Gaming 3x was a pretty good decision, one is that its white and black themed, second it supports SLI or Crossfire if i ever decide to do that, 3rd its a great overclocking board, and lastly it was a bargain against the other z170 boards.
GPU: Choosing the EVGA GTX 1070 FTW edition was pretty tough choice against the GTX 1070 SC edition because one, this GPU is a little more pricey compared the SC but having the RGB function sold it for me because having different varieties of colors is awesome. But all in all both cards as well as the rest of other manufacture 1070 cards are pretty much the same goes with overclocking but its all comes down to personal taste.
STORAGE 1 SSD: I chose the Crucial MX300 275gb SSD as a boot drive and to store important files on it such as frequently used games or photo/ video editing software.
STORAGE 2 HDD: I chose the Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD as the storage option because it offers lots of space compared to a 1TB HDD, and many say Seagate's aren't reliable due to early death rates for the drives but I've done some research and that this 2016 drive is an upgraded version from pervious models of seagate drives and should be very reliable, but will see how things go.
PSU: Decided to go with the EVGA BQ 650W PSU because its budget friendly and its Overkill for this build.(Update) Switched to the EVGA SuperNOVA 750w G3
CASE: I decided to go with the Phanteks Eclipse P400s White because its beautiful, it matches the build theme and also very simple looking with 3 buttons on the front panel with 3 speed fan Controller, LED Light controller, and reset switch, very straight forward, also doesn't have a optical drive bay, who needs those anyways. lol
FANS: I went with 2 140mm Corsair AF edition as intake and 2 120mm Corsair AF edition as exhaust, and also the case comes with 2 extra fans, i used one as an intake as well and the other just installed it on my parents case for extra fans. so you'll have 2 exhaust fans and 3 intake fans.
LED STRIP: Went with the Phanteks 1m LED Strip for extra lights inside the case and you can also use this LED strip to connect to the from the front panel as it has the LED control.
MOUSE: Got the Corsair M65 RGB PRO White Edition because it was also a bargain for a 12k DPI mouse perfect for FPS and you can also change the LED colors as well.
