Description

Diablo is now alive and fully Unlocked!

Name: Diablo Skylake The last game i played was Diablo and i'm using the laptop and its only 20-30fps so sad so i decided to build a desktop as a gift for myself and its my dream goal haha.

Processor: Intel Skylake i5-6600k 3.5Ghz (Overclocked to 4.6Ghz) I actually want to go with i5-4690k before but i decided to go with the newer model so that it will last more years and i can take advantage of ddr4.

GPU: MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G (Overclocked) This one is very expensive for my wallet. I actually wanted to go with GTX 750 or GTX 960 but based on the reviews its worth the price and i can play more high end games with this. i can go sli if i wanted to in the future too. :)

Monitor: ACER H257HU 1440p 4MS 60hz (Overclocked to 85hz) I'm thinking of going to either 144mhz or IPS but in my final conclusion i rather go with IPS and i found this monitor on sale and its 1440p and 4ms so not bad for a deal i guess.

PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 B2 They said its 9 out of 10 from john guru and so i decided to go with this haha.

Motherboard: Asus Z170-A This one i just like the price i guess. I don't like the cheaper once because i might not be able to overclock hahaha.

Storage: Samsung 250 EVO SSD This is one of the best for the price after researching so i decided to go with this one. and now im thinking 250 is not enough so i need to get an extra storage.

Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 8GB DDR4 2666 I actually don't know how to decide in the memory so i just picked this one hahaha..

Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 This is is the best for the price and it says on the review that it can handle even overclocking and its really working. I don't think i need to go with water cooling system if the performance is going to be almost the same.

Case: Corsair Carbide Series Spec-03 This is the cheapest case with a quality i checked online so i decided to go with this.

Mouse: Cougar 200M MOC200B I don't have enough money for a good mouse yet and i just wanted to replace my basic wireless mouse because sometimes its not working properly and there is sometimes a little lag since its a wireless and i chose this because i want it to be a partner with my keyboard which i already have since before.

Keyboard: Cougar 200K I already have this keyboard before i decided to build my PC. and i bought this because it has a good review and a good price.

TOTAL: C$1900 Including taxes in alberta, recycling fee, shipping, and discounts I got discounts from price match and then employee discount when i bought my monitor in staples.

If you are planning to build one. I suggest you to check prices from newegg, memory express, mikecomputershop. What i like from the memoryexpress is that they do price match and give 10% off in the difference and its very for the price match and the shipping prices ohhh its very cheap and its very fast. So that's all i can share for all of you.

You have the wrong PSU in your parts list. You should change it to the B2 so people don't tell you it's crap and to replace it because it is not a very good PSU.

My bad. Actually its B2 as what you recommended and its recommended by johny guru right?. Check the picture. maybe i just selected the wrong product in the list. Thanks for notifying me though.

Here's my opinion on DDR3: you can OC it to the same speeds as DDR4 for $20 less. Also, DDR3 Skylake MoBo's are MUCH cheaper than the DDR4 one's. Solid build otherwise!

  • 51 months ago

Well if DDR3 can OC to the same speed to DDR4 but it gives more pressure i guess? and also with the same ratio. DDR4 can OC to DDR4 in the future i guess? So i build this setup to last longer. :) Thanks for opinion though. very much appreciated and for enjoying my build :)

What DDR4 does is that it ups the data transfer speed from what I believe is 5 mb/s to 8 mb/s.

I actually have no idea about those. hahaha. all i know is Skylake is better for the future than the Devilcanyon _^

how are your cpu temps with the 212 evo?

Right now just browsing and commenting in this website and some facebook and youtube streaming i'm getting 25-36 degrees.

Those overclocks tho, impressive

i actually don't know how the manual overclocking works. i just run the optimization button in the asus program to get the maximum safe performance. and i hope it works fine

Great gaming build - lots of really great value parts come together to create a machine that should game very well at your chosen resolution. You're definitely going to run into a storage issue down the road, but good 1-2TB spinners are cheap and easy to add later.

Thanks a lot. I just decided to maximize the budget for the future of the computer too so atleast it can catch up in the technology longer. Yea for the storage i'm almost getting there and planning to buy a good storage on sale. :)

Whats your vcore?

  • 51 months ago
  • 1 point

max 1.328 i guess. its not stable. sometimes 1.296. they are set to automatic i guess because i just run the asus optimization program to set to the maximum safe performance. sometimes its lower than that. do you think its fine?

look on some OC websites. they have guides for OC the 6600k. i'm planning on a very similar build myself. found your threat bc i was interested in how well cpu OC with the EVO cooler. If i dont have to go with a more expensive water cooler then i wont...

regarding voltage, the guides i've seen does not recommend running auto voltage like you have done. forgot the reason why :) but you may want to look into it. 4.6ghz is pretty good for the 6600k.

  • 50 months ago

well i went on autovoltage and they set it to the 4.6 as the safest so i don't have problem for now :)

  • 50 months ago

Just keep in mind that sometimes it doesn't pick the "most stable", so manual tweaking is required. On LinusTechTips, for example, they had a case where the automatic one gave BSOD, but some manual tweaking gets a faster OC that's stable as well.

But sounds like it's still working great for you after all this time?

  • 50 months ago

well i dont see that much of a big deal for now. but there is one time that i get bsod i think. but not always. and also sometimes when i shutdown my pc it wont turn off right away and have to wait for a while but im not sure if its because of the auto. :)

First pic says 1.23-1.24v vcore for that 4.6 OC. While temps would be good at that vcore, I'm wondering if you even ran any CPU stress testing. Seriously, at 4.6 the average is vcore is 1.32-1.38v, maybe 1.30v. I don't want to be that guy but I'm calling bull on that OC.

  • 51 months ago

I reckon it's real. I have one running at 4.6 with a 185mv offset voltage with no stability issues yet. Gives a vcore of about 1.28/1.26.

max 1.328 i checked so far while playing diablo right now. its not stable. sometimes 1.296. they are set to automatic i guess because i just run the asus optimization program to set to the maximum safe performance. sometimes its lower than that. do you think its fine?

  • 51 months ago

Some fluctuations in the voltage is expected but those voltages look fine to me.

As long it doesn't crash on you you should be golden.

well i think asus program knows more than me on how to maximize it. so i just let the program take care of it right? its better than manual changing the voltage if i actually don't know them. thanks btw :)

Why the z170 a and not the z170 pro gaming?

  • 51 months ago
  • 1 point

because its cheaper? and i checked one reviews that is using 6600k, hyperevo 212, and z170a hahaha. but do you know whats the big difference between them? because i don't know also. hahaha.

I'm getting the Samsung 950 Pro for my first build but I don't know what motherboards are compatible. Will the 95o Pro fit on this board?

Hey nice build, I just picked up that Acer H257HU for my new build. How'd you manage to get that 85 hz on the monitor?

[comment deleted by staff]

Me too i love it! It's good for the sale price and its 1440p + 4ms which is more closer to the expensive monitors right? :)

I actually don't prefer the Acer brand but because of the specs i chose it :)

if you prefer to save money i go 6600k. the 6700k is going to be faster but 6600k is just a few percentage behind and unless you can maximize the benefits of the 6700k then go for it. but im just a normal user right now. so i cant say which one to go with. i just want to build something high end at the right price. :)
