Description

Welcome to War Machine, my Pc favorite build that I have built so far. The GPU is not very powerful tho I will be switching to an RTX 2060 in a month or so.

I didn't really have a specific color scheme for this build but I wanted some white parts to absord the RGB lighting which worked out perfectly! Then I can choose between 16.8 million color themes instead of one...

I noticed that XFR 2.0 used a little too much voltage in my opinion so I stepped down the voltages and now it sits stable at 1.25v to the vore and still boosting to 4.1 All core like it did before (where it was using 1.375-1.4v!). The ram is also in XMP mode at 2933mhz with 16-17-17-35 timings and TRC of 69... hehe

Some people might ask why I used two 1TB harddrives instead of one 2TB HDD. Well... I got two harddrives for christmas instead of one, I got two. And I didn't really feel the need to return them since I like to record videos and I will get better ingame performance if I run the recording software on one harddrive and the game on the other :D.

Also... Why so many fans you may ask?... Why the **** not? xD

Part Reviews

CPU

This processor is awesome for the price, it might not be the fastest cpu on the planet but it does the job well with a mid-range or a high-end card like an RTX 2070. XFR voltage is a little high but some voltage tweaking can easily fix this

CPU Cooler

This is the best CPU cooler for the money on the market right now. With the all blacked out heatsink and dead silent fan (running at 1000 rpm on 4.1 Ghz all core with 1.25v while gaming!) you really cant go wrong with this

Motherboard

Does the job very well and can handle a light overclock on both Ram and Cpu. It also comes with 6 fanheaders which is exactly what I needed!

Memory

Great looking and fast Ram! It unfortunately does NOT have per led costumization, that only comes on the RGB Pro.

Storage

Great little SSD for the money, a very nice extra gaming drive to have with all your ssd needing games. It's certainly not the fastest SSD but it gets the job done!

Storage

The perfect boot drive to have in your gaming pc. It runs cool, fast, and reliable!

Storage

A nice HDD to store big games and files on

Case

Great case with great airflow and cable management. Not alot of space for cables in the PSU shroud but its not impossible to fit some nice cable extensions.

Power Supply

An extremely well built power supply from Super Flower. The leadex platform is a masterpiece for gaming and I really can't complain, EVGA did a great job designing this!

Case Fan

Great case fans for the price, very silent and cheap

Custom

Decided to spice up my boring looking arctic fans, now they are orgasmic RGB fans lol

why do you have a Gigabyte RTX 2060 listed on your parts list?
