Description

I built this PC as my main gaming rig. It looks good, and gets 60+ FPS in every modern game.

Part Reviews

CPU

The best price/performance Skylake CPU you can get.

Motherboard

Very good choice for a non K Skylake CPU. Cheap, well built, and looks badass. :)

Memory

You can't go wrong with Kingston. 8 gigabyte is more than enough for every gaming rig today.

Storage

It's not bad for it's price. If you have a few more bucks/Euros, I recommend a Samsung or HyperX instead of this.

Storage

I using it for my Steam library, and other media. Better than Seagate...

Video Card

It's a beast for this price. 60++ FPS in every modern game, you'll never run out of VRAM, and looks good. The only negative aspect is it's noise. It is one of the loudest cards on the market right now.

Case

Everybody uses it, everybody knows it. Built like a tank, and it's gorgeous too. I love this piece of art. :)

Very clean looking build and decent parts selection, well done (Ps very similar to my own latest build).

Out of interest is your panel 1080p or 1440p, just want to know how this cpu/gpu combo works at 1440p.

Thank you mate!

This panel is only 1080p, but this config is more than enough for 1440p. This card is more like a 1440p GPU, and with this amount of VRAM, you will never get any bottlenecks. I tried Witcher 3 in 1440p, maxed out and I got 55-60 FPS.

Good looking pc. +1

Any good stories to go along with it before or during the build?

let's see: - First I've bought a Thermaltake Smart SE 630w modular PSU. It was loud as a diesel engine under load. So I bought a cheap 140 mm Aerocool Dark force fan, and replaced the original. It was really silent, on minimal load... But when I started gaming, it revved up on 100%, and it screamed like some fckn jet engine. :D I felt very angry and silly in the same time, so I just went to the local store and bought an Enermax PSU. It's one of the most silent PSU-s you can get right now. Now the only thing I can hear are those cheap blue Deepcool fans what came with the cooler. I want to change them to a pair of industrial Noctuas, but I know, I will miss the blue lighting... I just can't win. :(

  • A few month ago, I had no job, and no many. We broke up with my GF too. After this I got a job as an environmental engineer, I built this PC. When I put this build on instagram, the b*tch started texting me again. Fckn gold digger. :D

  • The GPU was really hot when it was new. About 85 degrees. I changed the thermal paste to Arctic MX 2. Now it's stable at 78 degrees. I recommend it for everyone.

Dude. That was an awesome story. Sorry about your woes. Sounds like the girlfriend was a good change. Thanks for sharing your tale. If you could stand it copy it into your description. Thanks again.

Very nice build. Can you give some pro and con about that mobo. I am thinking of getting but i have no clue about mobo in general. I am getting ssd and hdd both so i am not sure if this mobo will support.

Pro: It does everything what it has to, cheap. Build quality is awesome, Con: No overclock support.

I am using SSD and HDD at the same time. You can use M.2 drive too.

Dumb question, where do you get those sweet lights on your build? Are they installed on some parts? Do you have to buy them and install the yourself?

  • 42 months ago

You have to buy, and install them. case: NZXT Sleeved LED lighting (white), and the CPU cooler has 2 blue LED fans. Behind the monitor I have a cheap RGB monitor background lighting from Ebay.

just raise the multiplier in the bios

thanks i was just wondering as i haven't built the pc yet

If this is a completed build, stick it on pcpp and ask the same question you are likely to get more advice.

Secondly, there are some good fx 6300 oc guides online if you do a little searching.

As per PshychoTraktor raising the multiplier will get you going. However, depends how high you want to go. For a good oc there are numerous bios settings you'll need to turn off and you may need to dabble with voltages and llc....

Also, download a good stress tool e.g. Prime, and a temp monitor tool e.g hwinfo64.
