some well informed choices, it's a bit unfortunate that the costs had to be so high
Nice build (and that pony xD). Any plans for an aftermarket CPU cooler? If yes, I suggest you to go here to see the best aftermarket heatsink CPU cooler.
No real point to get an aftermarket with a locked cpu.
Oh. I see.
It's not bad to have a aftermarket, but the stock cooler will be "enough" not great.
Hah, didn't know that individual parts came with those little stickers that say stuff like "Intel Core i5 Inside", I thought those only came with pre-built computers/laptops!
Pretty good build, especially since AUS prices are ultra inflated comped to USD. Hope you enjoy playing Sims on this! Also, good choices not getting overkill stuff like a 7870 or a 4670k
I highly doubt that Sims 4 will be demanding, hehe
And frankly, I think it'll be cool to put the stickers on, then if you keep re-using this case, it will get covered in stickers! So then eventually it will have a "Core i5 inside" sticker as well as a sticker boasting a Skylake chip that has a different name than the i3/i5/i7 lines. Or, you don't re-use the case, and you just keep it. Then a few years down, you look at it and go "Man, I used an i5? Those things are crap compared to now!" It's just small novelty
How you likin those speakers? thinkin of getting them.
