Description

This PC is mainly for gaming, as the 1060 grants me a FullHD 60fps experience ad high\ultra. The only things that I would change are the CPU (an i5 6500\6600 would be great) and the case, as this one is quite cheap and has no space on the back for cable management.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU, but I think it's best to spend 20€ more on the 6500.

CPU Cooler

Very good cooler! Keeps my 6400 at 20C idle

Motherboard

Good motherboard if you are on a budget

Memory

Great RAM, and good looking too!

Storage

Does its job without a problem

Video Card

Great card! Overclockable and good loking

Case

Well built for the price but has terrible cable management, the front I/O is on the right side, so it's hidden if you keep it on a desk. Otherwise very spacious

Case Fan

Nice white fans! A bit noisy though

Awesome build! The white aesthetic works great! What games are you planning on playing, and what are the FPS numbers you have been getting?

Also, what is the mechanical drive in your build?

Thanks! Yeah I really like the white on a PC. Also you can choose whatever RGB color lighting you want. I played GTA V, Ultra apart from the advanced settings and it stays between 55 and 70 fps. Euro Truck Simulator same thing, Cities Skylines does ~30-40fps (unfortunately the CPU isn't that great). Fallout 4 Ultra does a solid 60fps, maybe more, but since my screen tears a lot I have to keep V-sync on. The mechanical drive is just an HDD that I've recovered from an external one. It's noisy and only 5400 rpm, but does its job. It's a 1.5TB Samsung drive.

20° C with a air cooler????

Yeah, it sits usually between 20 and 23. Also keep in mind that I can't overclock and that I have 3 case fans, other than the CPU one. Still, pretty cool. Literally.

It must be cold in your house.

Actually in the summer it's just a couple of degrees hotter. Built it back in August. I live in central Italy so there was about 30-35°C outside

It really confuses me, the air cooling lowest temperature depends on temperature n the room, you can't get it lower than that.....

Well, 35° is the exterior temperature. I do also have very thick walls, so maybe they isolate very well. Also, it's my very first build, so I don't really know the physics behind things. And I may or may not put a good amount of thermal paste in there. But it never gave me any problem until now so I haven't really bothered to substitute it.
