The most recent upgrades to the Warlock build add in a very cool looking G1 Gaming GTX 1070, AC wireless and Bluetooth :) Here's the original build if you want to check thing out = https://nz.pcpartpicker.com/b/Rp6XsY
I'm still in love with the little Corsair 88r chassis and this is a top choice if you're after something on the small side and quality / price is spot on, I've continued to tweak cable management inside and i'm making better use of the space behind the HDD bays again. The case really is pretty small and really tidy, I've taken a nice pic with a coke can to scale here = https://www.instagram.com/p/BHiNk9_hFSX/ If you building in it be sure to firstly remove any rear slots for gpu etc as these are non-replaceable ones and might hit the mobo while you break them away, break first then fit the mobo.
I've used a smaller motherboard this time, trying out the Gigabyte B150M-HD3 and it's a great little board much like my favourite GA-H110M-S2H. Gigabyte have updated there website with an excellent comparison tool = http://www.gigabyte.com/products/comparison/main.aspx?ck=2 and I really like the way it works, here's how it looks with the two boards side by side here = http://www.gigabyte.com/products/comparison/list.aspx?ck=2&pids=5641,5606 - super easy to read nice work gigabyte!
Hard drive wise I've run into no issues with the recent seagates over my usual WD blue picks so I'm using a Barracuda in this build.
I've stuck with the i5-6500 again and it's a great CPU for sure, if you're wanting to stay VR ready you can downgrade to the i5-6400 and stay above requirements while saving around $30 NZD :) I've also got a great new way to do cable management for the stock CPU intel coolers here = https://www.instagram.com/p/BHdzG-KBJ8t
Next plans for the build are to reduce the PSU down to around 500w and that should (hopefully) free up a little more $ so we can add in some more fans and maybe an aftermarket cooler for the CPU.
- I've also just finished a variant build of this for an upcoming overwatch tournament in NZ :) It's got a slightly smaller desk footprint in a phanteks Matx EVOLV and i'll get a new PCPP build thinggee done for that one soon \o/
