Welcome to my build members of the PCPP community! I am really excited to say I build my PC after a year of saving. I would just like to point out that this community is great and I plan on staying here for awhile. So, the build I wanted black and white with light blue LED's and I couldn't be happier right now. My purpose with this is to edit videos for people, graphic design, and maybe start streaming/YouTube. I actually get payed for some of my work and all my graditude goes to this community. Anyways, here's the parts and why I chose them.
i7 5820k: Really the cheapest hexacore from Intel is my main reason. It overclocks great and the 12 threads make editing a breeze, and I love it so far.
H100i GTX: This cooler has been amazing to work with. My temps are cool and I was able to get my 3.3 stock CPU to a 100% stable 4.4 GHz.
MSI SLI Krait Edition: The black and white coordination is bootiful. I also love the user friendly BIOS. I went with MSI because both my uncle and my GF's dad recommended MSI boards xD.
Crucial Ballistix Sport 16 GB: 16 GB is plenty for editing, but a upgrade cpuld be seen. The headspreader is nice looking and it's overall good RAM.
WD Caviar Blue: Great reliable drive. That's it... SSD's and more HDD's will definitely be coming.
Gigabyte Windforce 970: Great for 1080p Gaming is the main reason for the 970. Gigabyte is because well cooling and blue LED. That's why... Don't hate xD
Corsair 760T: Great case. Large. LED's. Material. Cable Management. WHITE AND BLACK. I just could not find a black and white case with a DVD bay for some reason. I wanted the DVD bay for occasionally making films.
Corsair RM750i: It's white... Again keeping with the theme. No, but this PSU is insanely quiet and provides enough power. Anything over the CX series am I right?
Windows 10: Windows 7 is too expensive... YOLO
I hope you liked the build and feedback would be awesome and appreciated. I love you guys and thanks for the help through my time here. Can't wait to build another PC. This was such an amazing experience. As for extravagant PC builds. I can promise you I'll build one some day.
I'll add more pictures tomorrow!
Thanks again PCPP community,
5 stars. I'm a newer PC builder and editor and for being really the cheapest hexacore from Intel, it is absolutely amazing. Recommend it for anyone who edits/streams.
10 minutes to install. Cool temps, but it is noticeably louder than others, great cooler though
I love the color scheme and the features on this board. For the price I definitely recommend it
It's ram. Head spreader looks nice, but it could be clocked higher for the price. I picked it up for $70 so I'm not complaining
Fast, reliable hard drive. No complaints
Looks amazing and with the overclock is really good card for 1080 or 1440
Huge case and is really easy to wo k in. Looks amazing too. Missing some rubber mounts when I got mine though
Really quite and provides power, like it should. A little pricy, but is very vey quite so not complaining
Prefer 7, but I'm cheap and don't want the damn upgrade notifications
