Description

After Months of research and saving I managed to build my first Gaming pc, I did run into one issue I accidently broke my hard drive but luckily I had a spare hardrive.

  • adjusted my gpu setting so fans a are constantly on and increased my temp limit so my fps doesn't drop during long game sessions, also I am able to play gta 5, rise of the tomb raider, fallout 4 and just cause 3 on max settings 1080p.

btw I'm only 14 and I built a pc yaaaaaaa.

I would have recommended getting a cheaper CPU and a much cheaper motherboard and putting that towards a much better GPU -- that's where much of your gaming performance would be coming from. Are you planning to overclock? If so, a 1050Ti might actually be bottlenecking.

An SSD is a great place for a next upgrade -- boot times, OS tasks, and loading times will all go down dramatically.

Personally, I would have gone with a cheaper motherboard. However, you still got a great one! Great build, good job building it when your so young.

Stay in school, don't let your PC steal your life away now :)

Congratz Liam, nice first build. Try the Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU) Version: 6.2.0.19 (Latest) Date: 11/11/2016. And that cooler should do just fine.

May I ask how much FPS do you get on most of the games? Like GTA V,etc..?
