Description

I use this PC for mostly Gaming, but also for everything else. The hardest part for me on this build was probably installing the motherboard and also installing the CPU cooler, its a monster.

I did not overclock and I probably wont for a good while, just due to lack of knowledge on the subject.

Comments are welcome.

EDIT: Added new images after installing the Corsair 240mm Rad., changed Idle/Full Load temps.

(1/21/19) EDIT: Added ACER Predator X27 4K 144hz Monitor

12/1/19 EDIT 2: Bought Thermaltake Core P5 and transferred all components into this case and water cooled the GPU/CPU with all EK parts. This was the first water cooled build Ive attempted/completed so I am very proud of the finished product. Will eventually buy the latest CPU/GPUs but probably not til Mid 2020.

Love the doggo at the end!

I honestly would recommend looking into overclocking. It's not as hard as you think, just time-consuming.

I just did a ton of research on lots of different webpages, but Tom's Hardware is probably the most useful site. Just look at the different pages there, they're all extremely helpful.

2 things

  • I personally own a corsair strafe and think that it is one of the better keyboards out there (certainly for the price)

  • are you sure you got the cooler you ordered because I'll be the first to tell you that that is dark rock tf not a dark rock pro 3 like your part list says. I don't know if you know, but the Pro 3 is a much much better cooler, so if it was a mistake, you may want to follow up on that

Yes you are correct, I wondered why they didnt look similar. I just changed it, thank you for the correction sir.

Also I love the Corsair Strafe, I almost got a more expensive keyboard but bought this one from Altex instead and I love it.

How is the cooling. I will be upgrading my 6 year old 2700K system with a new 8700K system and currently I run a Corsair AIO 120mm Radiator and have not had any issues but this cooler looks amazing and wondering how it cools.

I love this CPU cooler, I have had no issues with it, besides it being a bit on the large side. I actually ended up accidentally buying 2, so I have an extra new in the box. If you end up wanting to purchase this cooler let me know, I will give you a good deal.

Nice build. How did you get the 5" screen to work? I only get a white screen and windows doesn't even see it. Powered it by usb to pins 2 and 9.

When I purchased mine, it came with a paper that tells you what to download for it. Let me see if I can find the link.

It tells you how to install it if you scroll down below the screen, "How to Setup Resolution Automatically".

Did you make a case for the lcd screen?

Just simply bought a piece of wood and sanded it down real fine, and mounted the lcd onto it.
