EVA 02 - Kabylake Build 2017

by ZaydelJmz

Description

Hi! This is my build of 2016/2017 to play at 1080P :)

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

My unique alternative to Liquid Cooling, i love it.

Motherboard

Basic, Compatible with Skylake and Kabylake flashing the bios with an official update.

Storage

2 years with it, allows to write at a170mb/s and read at 450mb/s aprox.

Video Card

A really good card, so bad that mine get Coil Whine.

Case

I'm really Happy with this case, it's really big and allow super large cards, a lot of cooling options and it's modular.

Power Supply

I have this one since 2 years, probably the most "High End" part of my PC, 10 years of Warranty.

Operating System

Windows 10 is bae.

Monitor

This is my first 144hz monitor, the image is so smooth at 1080P, i love it, you have to try it!

Pretty nice build! Hopefully it'll last longer than it takes for Rebuild 4.0 to come out...

does the mobo work with the i3? every time i try and pick up a mobo its giving me this message

(Some Intel Z170 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Kaby Lake-S CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions.)

Yeah, this one works perfectly with the bios update :) BUT, you must update before use it with Kabylake.

Does the i3 bottleneck the 1060? I'm thinking of getting an i3 7100 and a gtx 1060 3gb.

Until a certain point. Definitely in many games it does, you will have to play a lot with the graphic options, but it works like a beast!
