Description

Hey guys!! I made this page kinda late, but I'm able to give you an update on how the components I used to put this computer are doing and so far, so good :D

Don't really have a name for this PC yet, but I will be sure to update the title if I do come up with one .

I built this PC Mainly for Video editing, gaming and graphics design. Was able to overclock the CPU to a stable 4.8 GHz using the game booster application that comes with the MSI Gaming M5 motherboard. CPU temps that I put down below change depending on the ambient temp of my room. If the room is cold enough the idle temps can go even lower than what I put. Planning to overclock it to 5.0 GHz once I have enough money to buy a better CPU cooler. Also planning to add some RGB lights to the case and some more fans for better airflow I will update this page once I do so.

Screwing the CPU cooler to the motherboard was the hardest part of the build. The assembly process was a pain the butt! Other than that, everything else was pretty straight forward and easy to do. I will have to work on my cable management though.

(I know... I put EVGA badge upside down on my case

That cooler can more than handle 5.0ghz (or higher), the reason why your temps seem a little high is most likely due to MSI's gameboost feature feeding your CPU more voltage than it needs to be stable at that clock speed. Manual overclocking is the way to go my friend. This, however, is a very very nice looking build, nicely done!

Ah I didn't think of that, thank you for your input, I will most likely have to do some research on overclocking so that when i do attempt it, I wont blow up my CPU :D

That CPU cooler is massive! That tells people you got something serious under there. But I agree with Cherty, it should be able to handle 5Ghz pretty easy if you did well with the thermal paste. I have a 6700k with a mild 4.4Ghz OC at 1.28V and it will not go above 80 on water. I need to get real thermal paste though, I am currently running the stock that came on the AIO.

Great build! +1

Thanks for your feedback. I still might end up getting an AIO anyway. Nice build btw! I like the white and black colour code you have going :D +1 for your build too
