Enthusiast is more i7s than i5s, plus only 550 watts on a PSU seems kind of tacky for a build of this caliber
Why not get a conventional SSD and HDD and use the money you save to get an i5 7600 w/ a less noisy, better cooler? Also, BF1 is out, fix that please.
Nah dude, he's got the CPU power to get something better.
Love this build, it's great
1 thing to describe this build: Sexy. +1
Love this build. +1
Love this build, it's great.
Update to Kaby Lake?
I like this build, quality parts, +1.
They are blowing out the back...
You could have saved some money by going for an i3 rather than an i5, but otherwise this is a great PC
It's still a risk that must be known.
I get all the other claims except for the PSU, the PSU is fine for OCing, I've only got 650 watts and I'm still running at 4.4 GHz, plus there is a boost in speed with the 7600k, and if your friend decides he wants to OC he can just switch out the mobo instead of the CPU and the mobo.
Love this build. I wouldn't have changed a thing. +1
Watercooling can be dangerous, but you don't need it.
Why get the 7600 when you can get the 7600k instead?
This is a pretty good build, the only thing I would change is going for an RX 480 rather than a GTX 1060 simply because it will get better performance on most games.
Get an i5-4690k and OC it. Then get a GTX 1070, it's a great card that will suite all of your needs.
You know it
Oh no! It's a weeb! Lol, all jokes aside this is a great PC. Gj, +1
I love this build. It's pretty great. I have the exact same system except it's a black and red theme, and a bigger beefier air cooler, here's a link http://pcpartpicker.com/b/Hmf8TW
It sits just fine, just make sure to put it in before you install the cooler, but if you have some tall RAM, it might not fit so well.
It's fits on just fine, I had it off because I still had some finishing touches to do.
Thanks m8. What parts do you not like?
I've OC'ed my CPU to 4 GHz, but I haven't got the OS yet so I'm not sure if it's stable.
The Noctua was easy to work with and I got their Thermal paste with it so I'm happy, it idles at 20-23C and is dead silent with the case open
It's just a cheap motherboard for such a beefy processor.
There is no reason to get an i7 6700 over the i7 6700k, it's only 25 dollars more, allows you to overclock, and is faster at stock speeds than the 6700. And a $63 dollar motherboard for this build? That is insane, sir.
You could add a 1050 ti and have some respectable frame rates from this PC.
Personally, I would have upgraded to a GTX 1070 because of the extra power for 1440p but this build is still pretty great +1
This is Enthusiast grade, not just glorious.
Honestly I think an H100i is a bit overkill for this system, it would save you quite a bit of money if you got a cheaper CPU cooler and you didn't overclock as heavily. Other than this is a great build.
My question for you manirelli, is why not go for a 6600k instead of the 6500, it's about 30 bucks more and allows you to overclock if you switch out the mobo at a later date. It also runs about 300 MHz faster out of the box.
970 runs cooler bro, cause the non reference design
This is literally 10 times better than the original revision, thanks for fixing the build to be more enthusiast friendly!
