Thank you very much!
Oh I'm sorry! Its Free-Sync.
Both are 1920x1080, 144hz monitors by ASUS.
Also, is the Asus Prime X470-Pro meet the requirements for the ASUS Aura-Sync compatibility?
Well, then I'll keep that change in mind then!
I see what you mean about the corsair RAM, and I like your idea, but with the ASUS graphic card, it'll allow more synced-up RGB in the build.
Thank you! It matches the color scheme that I like :)
Thank you! I like that purple case you added
GOD THIS IS PRETTY FREAKING AWESOME
This seriously is one of the greatest RGB builds I've seen of this build
Have you ever thought of a thought?
Oh My God...
Dear PCPartPicker gods, please let this build get featured!
This is one of the cleanest builds I've ever seen on this website. PLEASE, tell me where I can get those Bamboo front and top panel covers. I've created a couple of acrylic GPU backplates, and they really are beautiful.
Bro don't spill any on your PC xD
HOLY MOTHER OF CRACKER BARREL'S CHICKEN & DUMPLINGS
This. Is. Absolutely. Beautiful.
Totally have a better build than this
JK lol mine is a freaking i5-4690k and a GTX 750 Ti
1. If your into Fortnite, PUBG is a great battle royale game, but is definitely much more stressful than Fortnite. (I've won 10 games on PUBG, and trust me, I'm freaking sweating during the top 20)
2. You recently said you were into FPS games, so a good game to branch out to is Destiny 2. Great multiplayer, great story line. Call of Duty WW2 is also a great game, but while it does lack in some areas, the balance of all guns and realistic firefights make it a must play.
3. Want to take a break from FPS shooters? (Of course not, but oh well) Strategic games like Factorio and Starcraft II are great games that are just a little more laid back. Terraria is also a chill game.
Thank God for Cable AIO Wraps!
Great build. Its a clean setup and has no flaws besides the keyboard and mouse wires (drilling a hole in the middle of your mousepad and routing them through the hole will make your desk look cleaner.)
Just make videos. If your just starting, you are at a little bump, as you may not know what series you want to start or how to edit. Just uploading videos with putting your best effort into it will earn you a reliable fan base.
One thing that will make you lose subscribers so, SO fast is having these long, cringe-filled intros with insanely loud bass drops and enough moving objects for a new member to lose interest in your channel. Either have no intro or a calm, relaxed intro.
This is a great build, and I appreciate your use of hard tubing instead of soft tubing. It's a tough task to do. The only thing I suggest is that you get a new case and desk. I just feel like your small-windowed case and tiny desk doesn't allow you to experience the full glory of your custom loop PC!
Great Build, But isn't $600 a little, just a little too much for a 1920x1080 144hz monitor? You could've gotten a 1440p 144hz monitor for $200 less and could've spent it on modded cables, extra aesthetics, and DIY modding to make your build stand out.
For wanting what you have, the 16 GB of memory here will allow smooth workstations while having the required number of tabs you want open. If you want fast speeds, I bumped your SSD up to an M.2 EVO storage for faster boot times and more. The case is a little on the pricey side, but it truly lives up to it's be quiet! name.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
This will kill Dota 2 and other Triple AAA Titles at 1440p 144hz. If you want to save any money in any, you can take out the M.2 storage and replace the 1070 Ti with the 1070.
The 2 front intake fans are a 280mm radiator setup, so in the front is 2 140mm fans, and then there is rrom in the back for 2 120mm fans.
Why is there a $40 Deepcool Case in a $2k gaming computer?
I know you want to lower the price, but man, you have to put a little more moolah into your case.
For Lowering the Price (Sort Of)
Change the 8600k to an i5-8400. The 8400 has a trubo clock of 4.0 GHz, and with benchmarks has it easily standing with the i7 7700k and 6600k. Your not getting a huge difference out of them, and your saving $100 about.
Your Prepihrals. While I know you may have opinions on these, You can get a nice Logitech or Razer keyboard for sub-$90 dollars, and with Black Friday, they're bound to go lower. (Same goes with your headphones.)
Get a new case. I suggest a NZXT S340 Elite Case, as those have lots of room to work in and have a nice aesthetic look to your setup.
Nice Build! The only thing I would suggest is that for the 1070, while it comes with an integrated cooling system, you can get a 1070 Ti at some websites for the same price. Also, how is the NZXT Hue+ LED's working out for you? I'm interested in investing in a LED Strip, and I just wanted your opinion.
RGB or White LED fan models that I would suggest would be either the Corsair SP120, The NZXT Aura fans, and the Corsair LL120.
Thanks for the info, I will look to invest in the Masterkes series.
This is a great build! There's 2 things I would change aesthetic-wise to help your build pop out, but part-wise, everything is great.
How are the Cooler Master Keyboards? I've been looking into your model, but are the keys loud and hows the overall feel of the keys?
Great Build! -^
Probably Windows. I mean, a Mac is much more expensive and only has a few extra things that Windows doesn't offer. Thinkpads can easily run Word 365 and other school programs with ease, and a few of the models will allow low/moderate gaming when time allows it. So I would say Windows.
Nice build! For a first time builder, your parts are well-planned out and your cable management is very neat and organized. The only thing that I would change is your GPU. Stay with the GTX 1080, but go with an Asus Strix 1080. With the Mobo and RAM being compatible with Aura Sync. running with the Asus GPU would make your RGB lighting more synchronized.
It looks like a great build, and if you don't already have a monitor I would suggest going for a 1440p + resolution and a high refresh rate. also, the CableMod AIO Wraps will really make your build stand out, but you would have to a Corsair H80i to be compatible with the wrap. The only thing you need to change is your PSU. With a 450 Watt machine and a 500W power supply, your cutting it close with any overclocking whatsoever, so I would suggest getting a 650W PSU. Other than that, looks good!
Really nice build! The only thing I'll suggest is not getting 16GB of RAM if your just gaming, and ust the extra $30-40 dollars on a nicer GPU.
It's a good hardcore budget CPU to compete with the Intel Pentium G456. It can run games at good speeds and can always be further OC'd from its 4.2 GHz base. It's just that these newer models of CPU's have better architecture for their products and a LOT more Cache, like my 5820k has 15 LB Cache, compared to the 2 Cache from the FX-4350. Also, the non-hyperthreading takes a big toll in performance. It's not that it's bad, it's just that the old FX architecture can't compete with newer Ryzen and Intel CPUs.
Like a Micheal Bay film set in WWII
I'm dying xD
Really beautiful, the Inwin's new lineup of cases have really impressed me. But, would it kill you to put an RGB outtake fan by the motherboard!?!?!
Just kidding, great build (-<-)
That's a good build for $460 for games like CSGO, Overwatch, and maybe PUBG on medium/low settings. The only thing I would change is your CPU and PSU. Your build is only using 211 watts of power, and you have save $15-20 on a 450W power supply. Also, if you could splurge for a Ryzen 1200, that would allow you for more than just gaming with the 2 additional cores, but for just gaming, the pentium will be fine.
It'll run completely fine. I have an Intel 5820k and a SSC 1060 6GB, and I usually get around 70-75 frames on high settings. With those specs, you'll be completely fine streaming and recording. But, make sure you have a good internet connection. PUGB isn't the worlds most ping-friendly game, and it can be a real pain. (Happened to me before I got an Ethernet cable.
