Description

I would like to start off with a disclaimer... I know the parts that I chose and I am aware that there are some parts that I paid too much for due to current markets and such and that I could have found a better version so on and so on. Please understand that before you give any positive or sadly for some, negative criticism on my built. Try not to judge my computer and desk area lol, it works for me.

I will be using this computer for gaming, 3D modeling and graphic design. I will not be doing too much rendering at this time but I am sure I will get to it eventually.

The build overall went smooth, no DOA parts and everything after the day of solid use I have put into it is running smoothly.

No OC benchmarks are in...

Part Reviews

CPU

My favorite CPU. Always tearing it up and taking names.

CPU Cooler

So far so good. Runs quiet and keeps it cool. I added 2 extra fans for push pull. The only downside is of course the tubing which is very rigid and not well placed in my opinion.

Motherboard

Board is wonderful. 3 X M.2 slots is great for cable management and simplistic approach to storage. Everything bios and lighting wise is pretty straight forward.

Memory

Ram is ram that is ram. Works as expected and both register for me fine.

Storage

I am a Crucial fan boy to say the least and this drive does not disappoint. Very fast and reliable thus far.

Video Card

The aesthetic and raw power of this card is amazing. Nothing more to be said.

Case

Oh where to begin with this case... To start the tempered glass full side panel is BEAUTIFUL! I could not be any more happy with the look of it and the quality of the case overall. It is a simpler case without all the bells and whistles but that is what drew me in. There is plenty of space for cable management and the two hidden SSD brackets are really nice.

Power Supply

It does what it does and it is EVGA lol. I usually go for full modular but this was on sale. Haven't messed around enough yet to give any more detail.

Monitor

Great monitor if you can get it on sale even better. I didn't have any real color issues but messed around with the settings anyway to make it work for me. Only downside in my opinion is the lack of ports.

Nice build and I like the custom design. Pretty cool. Isn't this a tad bit overkill for 1080P @ 75hz though?

lol yes it is overkill but the heart desires what it desires. I am replacing the monitor shortly don't worry ;)

It really does make a huge difference. I went from a 22" 1080p @ 60hz to a 34" 2560 x 1080 @ 144hz monitor, and the difference was night and day. You could probably go higher resolution and frame rate, maybe throw in some G-sync and really take advantage of the horsepower you have.

I like the way you think, any suggestions for me?

Asus PG279Q ROG Swift or Dell AW3418DW if you want a big ultra wide. You can use the monitor picker on this page to find monitors with the features you want as well.
