(NOTE:PART LIST UPDATED 14/06/2018 + new results)

Eventually, after using a pre-built lenovo pc from Pc World for a couple of years, I decided that an upgrade I added to it (gtx 650) wasn't good enough to play any proper games. So I saved up some money and created my first proper pc with some style. Let me say, first off, that it is significantly better (I guess that's not hard to beat if you can barely run tf2 at 20fps) and I am very happy about how it performs. I can now run any game at a great framerate AND it looks really cool too! I highly recommend all the parts I have bought for my build (especially the trident z rgb ram and kraken x62 since they look AMAZING and the kraken keeps my cpu at great temps) but also recommend having space on your desk as the case is very big (not necessarily a bad thing).

Here are some benchmarks: NEW: http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/6501950

Part Reviews

CPU

has great performance in games and runs well

CPU Cooler

Amazing quiet cooler which not only looks cool (infinity mirror is so cool!!!) but also keeps my cpu at beautiful temps

Motherboard

lovely looking motherboard with nice rgb lights and easy to use BIOS

Memory

Where do I start? It looks great, has great RGBs and is easily overclocked to 3100hz

Storage

A good quality hard drive which stores plenty.

Video Card

Card runs games at great frame rates and has quite nice RGB lights. the fan doesn't turn on till above 50oC so very quiet and the back plate is very nice.

Case

Large and beautiful. Like the little lights and has a lovely texture on it. The tempered glass reflects everything but only a little, giving a very nice effect. Very nice to work in.

Operating System

Windows - good os everyone needs at some point

Monitor

Has lasted me well for the past 3 years and still does!

Monitor

Great clear and sharp monitor with a lil' curve and good adjustability. Great look and 144hz is like heaven when upgrading from 60hz

Mouse

Had it since like 2014, still working and works great in all types of different games.

Headphones

OOOOOOhhhhh, love the sound and mic isn't bad. However, 1 year in had to replace ear cushions which cost quite a lot (£13). Still good though and definitely worth the price

Hey, I have a question for you, the mobo your using has an 24 pin and 8 pin power connectors, does the power supply you have support both of those, from what im seeing, it doesn't have 28 pins for mobo connectors.

There are separate connection points for the 24 pin and the 8 pin on the power supply separated by a gap

Damn your GPU runs hot! 500 + degrees isn't normal! Nice build though, and I love your case!
