Hey everyone ,
Been a while since ive posted anything, been a bit busy at work , and my old rig was starting to irritate me .
So after months of research , viewing u-tube reviews , watching guides etc etc etc , i came up with a build that i think meets my gaming and general computing requirements .
Since this was the first time i built a pc i was a bit skeptical and damn nervous when i finally hit the power button .
BANG!!! LOL , all ran smoothly and it lit up in a fireworks of RGB lighting (on default) that would make a paint artist proud (or not ) .
YEAHHH windows boots in 5 seconds flat ^^ . first time took a while tho, i had to set up the bios etc etc , so yeah got all my notes out and took hours doing this and that in the bios , OC options etc etc . It would probably take most of you a few minutes .
All in all everything is running normally (TOUCH WOOD) , CPU and GPU temperatures don't exceed 58 ° at full load and they hover around 36 - 38 on idle .
Suffice to say im running everything on high or ultra with no problems at all and way over 100 fps on 1080 .
Down to the nitty gritty , this is what is under the hood -
Processor - Intel - I5 8600k 3.6Ghz (Stock) - NZXT KRAKEN X52-AIO for cooling.
Motherboard - Asus Rog Strix Z370G
Memory - 32 Go DDR4 3200MHz G.Skill Trident Z (2x 16 GTZR)
Graphics card - Rog Strix - GEFORCE RTX 2070 OC version 8Go DDR5
Drives - Boot Drive SSD M.2 Samsung 970 EVO : 500 Go - with a EK Water Blocks M.2 Heat Sink .(what a beast )
