Description

 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,

Plixle

Part Reviews

CPU

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.

CPU Cooler

10 minutes to install. Cool temps, but it is noticeably louder than others, great cooler though

Motherboard

I love the color scheme and the features on this board. For the price I definitely recommend it

Memory

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

Storage

Fast, reliable hard drive. No complaints

Video Card

Looks amazing and with the overclock is really good card for 1080 or 1440

Case

Huge case and is really easy to wo k in. Looks amazing too. Missing some rubber mounts when I got mine though

Power Supply

Really quite and provides power, like it should. A little pricy, but is very vey quite so not complaining

Operating System

Prefer 7, but I'm cheap and don't want the damn upgrade notifications

This is awesome! I love seeing young kids like you getting into the world of computer. Don't let any of that *he's to young for that PC" nonsense get to you. It's kids like you who will grow up to be the worlds next great programmers and engineers. +1 and keep up the good work!

Learning C++ as we speak... Thanks man, means a lot. Have a good day and enjoy life. As for the he's to young, I don't mind. My 11 Year Old friend has i7 6700k and 980Ti so not complaining

Cool! I'm currently getting into programming myself too. I haven't gotten too far but I'll catch up! That's awesome though. 13 year old kid knowing more than most sophomores taking AP computer classes (in my school at least)

What voltage are you running your 5820K at? I have mine at 4.3 GHz 1.155 vcore on air with similar temps. I haven't tried 4.4 with 1.155 vcore yet though I think it would work. Awesome build, although I don't really understand why the 970 over the 390.

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

That's pretty good at that voltage. I haven't had my old 5820k system in quite awhile but I was able to hit 4.6 on water but just under 1.3v if I remember right.

  • 48 months ago

Okay, I have mine at 4.3 at 1.155 vcore.

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah all CPU's tend to have a spot where if you want to go higher you need to take a big jump in Voltage.

My 6600k for example runs at 4.6 everyday because I can run it lower than 1.3 but to hit 4.7 I need to raise it to about 1.375.

The next point you reach is where you can't just adjust voltage to go higher. For me to hit 4.9 on my 6600k and be stable I have to do a lot more than adjust the Core Clock and Voltage.

  • 48 months ago

What stress test did you run to test its stability at 4.3 / 1.155 and how long did you stress test it for to call it stable?

I doubt you can get 4.4 at that voltage and remain stable with prime95 or an equivalent test. I guess it's possible, idk. 4.45 is what I usually kept my 5820k on everyday and the voltage wasn't that low. Could just have a better chip than I did though but to stay stable I was about 1.25 I believe. Once again this was awhile ago and I've dealt with OCing my 6600k a lot since then so have all kinds of numbers in my head. Maybe getting confused.

Okay, I was using Intel XTU for a few hours as well as Prime95. 4.4 isn't doing well with XTU though, the entire computer freezes when the Intel XTU stress test ends, it's really odd and I think it might be the software because P95 runs fine. Also my 5820K doesn't like memory over 2400, it refuses to post properly with anything over 2400 without using bclk adjustments. This might be the memory though.

Replying a little late, sorry. 970 is better for streaming because it's slightly quieter and Shadow Play and Gamma helps a lot

I've heard bad thinks about Pascal and the 970 will still last a while

I've had both the 970 and 390 and I find it to be fairly close really. All depends on what game you play. The 390 is definitely hotter but IDK if it makes the 970 much quieter but I guess it depends on which card you have. The 390 can handle higher heats so the fans don't have to be going as fast if the 390 and 970 are at the same temp.

That being said, I do like the 390 a bit more and find it to perform a bit better on the games I've played. Ark for example, I couldn't get 20 FPS with the 970 on max settings and with the 390 I'm closer to 25. Doesn't mean much since no one is playing with 20-25 fps but still.

Don't have the links, was awhile ago. You can find it on YouTube I'm sure and for Gaming a 900 PC would be great, but I build this with special needs to edit and design

If he got a less expensive case,power supply , and ram he probably could of gotten a better GPU without much sacrifice , but all in all I think this is a great build , but what I want to know is if he picked out the parts himself.

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

Picked by myself. Yeah, i just wanted a quiet Power Supply and I got tge RAM for $70. Anything above a 970 is way overkill for 1080p anyways

Cool , Thats true , personally I find future proofing dumb and think you should only upgrade when its needed. Do you have a youtube channel if so could I get the link and thx for responding so quickly . :)
