Description

Hey everyone,

This is my pc first pc build and building went great. I really liked it to do, so if you didn't build a pc yet, but you are thinking about it to do, i would say: "Just Do It." At first I thought it would be really difficult to build it, but when I was builiding it was not, fortunately. I will just talk about all the parts that I bought for this pc:

Intel i5 6600K (CPU):

So this cpu is the best i5 cpu on the market right now, if I am right. It is a beast and I can simply overclock it to 4,1 Ghz with the Gigabyte EasyTune app that came with the motherboard. On stock speed, what I use now, it gives me 3.5 Ghz what is enough for now, because I don't have a GPU yet as you maybe already have seen.

be quiet! PURE ROCK (CPU cooler):

This CPU cooler is very nice for its price. It is close to the popular Cooler Master 212 Evo, but I think it is a little better and it is also smaller, what is really nice for my case. No hate to the 212 evo tough.

Gigabyte GA-Z170-Gaming K3 EU (Motherboard):

This motherboard gives me all the features I need for some years. Examples are: 64 gb DDR4 RAM, I think I only need 8gb more but whatever, Sata Express, Metal Shield for GPU, Amd crossfire, it hasn't Sli so if you want 2 nvidia graphics cards, then don't go with this mobo. But come on, 1 good gpu is enough right? For me it is and I have a FreeSync monitor so Amd Crossfire is on its place. It has also Gaming LAN for better online gaming performance. It has also AMP-UP Audio, what gives better audio ofc. It has also a really modern BIOS with good features. I almost forgot the Ambient LED lights on the mobo. It gives a very nice look to my Black and Red theme going on in and on the case. It also has good heatsyncs for nice overclock capabilities.

G.Skill Ripjaws V 8GB (2x4gb) DDR4-2133mhz (RAM):

In the part list it says that I have 2400mhz but I cannot find 2133mhz so I went with the other one, but I have 2133mhz, so you know now. It doesn't make that big of a difference btw and RAM is RAM I always say. G.Skill is a good brand and it gives me a very solid performance and smooth feeling. 8GB is enough for me now.

Samsung 250GB 750 evo (SSD):

This SSD is close to its big brother called the 850 evo. Booting my pc is a breath now. Booting up is so fast, before I had a HDD to boot up but I can't go back to a HDD for sure. This works too good.

WD Caviar Blue 1TB 7200RPM (HDD):

Just a very solid HDD. 1TB enough for now and for all my games.

NZXT S340 (case):

This case is a beauty. I love looking in and at it. It supports liquid cooling for in the feature and my CPU cooler fits perfectly in this case. I really like the slim look of it. Cable management in this case is really simple. The case comes with tie rips aswell, so cable management is on its finest! :)

Seasonic 620W 80+ Bronze certified Fully Modular ATX (PSU):

In the PC part list it says I have the 520watt version but I couldn't find the right psu again so you know. This 620W PSU gives me, aswell, the capabilities to overclock my CPU and supports the GPU I'm going to buy: MSI RX 480 Gaming X 8GB.

Philips Hue (Led strip):

Very nice ledstrip that can be controlled by your phone, pc, ipad, and so on. It works with a Wifi bridge.

LG 24MP68VQ (FreeSync monitor):

As it says, a FreeSync monitor, not for long on the market. It is a bit wobbly but I'm going to buy a dual monitor stand so it should be fixed at that moment!

I also have the cooler master Octane bundel and also fits well in my setup. It is a membrane keyboard but types really nice with 7 LED colors. It has also a breathing mode that switches colors aswell.

Just got Windows 10 pro on it in the legal way ;P I just bought a OEM key really cheap so $129.84 isn't the real price fortunately. I also have a pair of headphones: Sony MDR-XB450. Not the most expensive headphones but it gives me a very nice sound and it is bass boosted out of the box. Then I also have some logitech speakers with a subwoofer from logitech aswell that comes with the speakers. Some IKEA fake plants. And a Oneplus 3 White/Red box that fits well in the setup.

So this was all the information about my pc. If you have questions or tips, just let me know in the comments :) Let me know what you think about my first build. I am really curious.

Wow! This build is great. There are almost no flaws at all. Although I would have gone Windows 10 Home. Also, does your budget not allow to get a video card?

Thanks! Why windows 10 home? The price was the same. My budget allows a GPU but in my country the rx 480 is not released completely. (Aftermarket)

Windows 10 home is cheaper and recommend for home use. You do not need RX 480. GeForce is better. But pretty good build overall.

As I Said, it was the same price fortunately. And the gaming performance is the same, and you get more features so I am happy with it. I got it for $25,99 as an OEM key, so really cheap.

I have a FreeSync monitor so i go with a msi rx 480 gaming X. It is also better on DX 12, OpenGL and Vulkan at this moment. No hate to Nvidia tough. I really love their cards aswell but it is just because I got a compatible monitor ;-)

It is a disgrace to the PC community when people like you say ''GeForce is better''. How can you label an entire brand ''better''? Nvidia does not have a card in the price range that the RX 480 is in, so nothing Nvidia has is ''better''.

Nice, I'm thinking. of building a i5 6600k too! Since you don't have a video card and RX480s and 1060s are hard to find, get a video card. If u are not a gamer, an RX 460 and a GTX 950 or a 760 are fine. If u do game, R9 390 and GTX 970 should be fine, even though they are kinda old

Nice build! Extremely clean desk :O!!!

Is this PC for everyday use and no gaming? Cause you don't have a gpu in the build.

+1 for red and black theme!
