Description

Hello! Thanks for checking out my build!

This is the second PC of mine I have built and hopefully it lasts a while!

Eventually I'll give a review of each of the components on my list, but I feel my review wouldn't hold as I have only had these parts for a few days. So I'll review them whenever I feel I've had enough time with them.

So to start with, this PC is pretty much only used for gaming. Yes, I know it's overkill, but what's life without people who waste their money! Right? No? Ok.

Anyways let's get down to it! I'll start with what I feel I can give an accurate review for.

BenQ XR3501 Not much to say about it. I really like this monitor. It is a little bit large and was hard for me to get used to coming from a 24" monitor. A little bit pricey for what it is in my opinion. Anyways....

Side Note: I actually changed the RAM last minute. Corsair released their Dominator Platinum with a red top that I decided to get instead of the 2800Mhz in the part list. Pcpartpicker hasn't added that one to their website so i'll leave it until it's added.

More description to come!

Part Reviews

Case

This wasn't my first choice for a case, but I wanted a case with a large window to show off the red/black color scheme I had going. Almost none of the cases I was really interested in didn't support an EATX motherboard which is a shame. It has a quite a bit of red. Almost too much for me, but it's hard to notice with the tinted side glass. It has great cable management and support for future water cooling which is great for me. The LED's on the side and the LED fans look great and add a nice touch to it.

Wireless Network Adapter

Best wireless adapter I have ever owned. A little bit pricey but you get what you pay for. I personally think this is the best option if you want fast internet and can't get a wired connection.

Mouse

I love this mouse. I prefer my mice to feel a little bit heavier unlike Razor mice and I'm also a Corsair fanboy. There are only 2 things I dislike about the mouse.

  1. It doesn't come with the numbers preset. So you have to go into the Corsair Utility program and program each number on the side to each number on the keyboard.

  2. I dislike that you can't get the mouse without the yellow on it. If the yellow was all black or a steel color it would look much better.

It's a very good mouse aside from those tiny annoyances.

Well it did come with with it, but I already had this adapter that was better than the built in wifi so I decided to use it since I had it

Thanks! I plan to do a custom loop eventually, but I don't feel I'm experienced enough to take that on yet. Maybe next Christmas! And yeah the case is pretty dang big.

No better case to do a loop in either. Except maybe a few. But you'd be spending another $300.

I know it's a long time since this has been postet, altough... I never built a watercooling system before, but in may I got the Primo and decided to build a custom hard-line loop in it. It's not finished yet, but when it is, I'll upload it to PcPartPicker. I'll give in in depth review on how it worked out for me and give tips for beginners that I found helpful myself. If you're interested, I can notice you below this build.

I also included the grafics card into the loop (I own a MSI 980ti Gaming 6G), all in all the custom loop with 2x 480 rads and a 240 rad came to roughly 800€. At the moment only the bending of the tube is left to do but I got little time. I expect to be finished in like two weeks or so and then write the build-log.

Can't go wrong with the Primo...it was either this or the Luxe for me but went luxe. Amazing looking build and that 35" monitor really complements it +1

At the time of release, when I bought it, it was only available in yellow. They came out with the black version shortly after that.

Holy poo that monitor looks beautiful and it makes my 29ub55b cry..... Anyways those ram tops are awesome man and it really is what my eyes jumped to first. I also am in love with the stud 980 ti's and I can only dream of owning one of those babies. Nice build and I will give it (drumroll please) +134738028833.33 repeated likes.

How the hell did you manage a duel graphics,6 core,AIO,32 GB DDR4 and perifs in this budget

  • 53 months ago
  • 1 point

What do you mean? I didn't really have much of a budget and most of the parts were ordered when they were on sale or had some type of deal with them. Except the peripherals .

Whats the overclock on this cpu did you get? And what wattage are you using from the wall (If you wall), we almost have the same build and was just wondering! :P

  • 53 months ago

Sorry for the late reply! I haven't actually overclocked the CPU yet. I plan to, but I don't know how to overclock. I got this CPU with the plans to do it. I just have to find the time to sit down and research it thoroughly.

Sick build +1 from me, could have gone with msi to match color scheme but doesn't really matter to late now

Thanks! Btw what MSI part are you talking about? Or you talking about all the parts in general be MSI? Lol

Edit: Sorry for the late reply!

The msi gaming series are red and black plus look super cool and in my opinion msi has the best cooling, atleast for air cooling Edit:plus they are cheaper :)

Amazing build, but why need 2 great Corsair mice, even if you are a Corsair fanboy?

Thanks! Well to answer your question, I got the M65 Mouse when my last Razer Naga mouse broke. After using it for a while I realized how utterly incompetent I am without the keypad on the side of my mouse, so I turned around and got the Scimitar.

wow.. very good build, I think the X99/5930K is a more wkstn-oriented platform.. if you wanted a gaming pc, the 6700K probably would have been a better choice ??

Nevertheless, very nice build.. :-))

Nice build! I wish I liked the color red more than I do although it is kind of growing on me. The only thing I noticed is that you put AF 120s on your radiator. The AF series is for airflow through your case but when trying to push air through a radiator the AF series wing design does not push that much air through. The SP 120s are made for paying air through places with obstructions where it is not just open. Hope this helped!

Thanks for letting me know that! I didn't look up that much about the fans before purchasing(Bad decision I know). So that's great info. I'm planning on changing the build around when the 1080 TI comes out so I'll change the fans around then. I also am not a huge fan of the red honestly. The color of the case isn't my favorite. I prefer a darker red. Almost a Maroon color, but as I didn't feel like spending the money or time to get a case painted, I opted for this.
