  1. Thanks, I already updated the build with the Asus Prime Z270-A.
  2. Yeah I get you, but the most important thing is how much joy and satisfaction will the build bring you and that's subjective. I could build him a more powerful PC with the i7 if I picked some random black windowless case, put parts that don't look good at all in there cause it doesn't matter so he can just tuck it under his desk and forget about it but that's not what he desires. All I can do I is send it to him, which I did and I explained him in what ways it can be better and he said he would rather risk not having the benefits of the i7 so he can have the pretty stuff if it won't hinder the performance in games.
  3. Well if he went for the i5 + the AiO i picked he would be able to possibly overclock it more or get better temps, also he would get the superior looks he keeps dreaming about. Personally I might would have went for the i7, probably saved up a bit more, but I have to respect what is important for him and I know he would not really like a giant black thing in his PC overshadowing everything else, I can understand that.
  4. I just can't justify investing €110 more into just hyper-threading, nor can I imagine a latest i5 with some OC being a bottleneck. He plans to buy a 4K monitor for the new computer as they are pretty affordable now.
  5. Why the i7 in a mainly gaming PC though?
  6. Chill, I don't mind, people make that mistake all the time for various reasons, my point was to definitely clarify, not to offend.
  7. Austria is no Australia though. We live here:
  8. Not really, we are not Brits, the parts are to be purchased in Austria and PCPartPicker does not cover this country, there is only Germany with diffirent stores and some products I mentioned are not there.
  9. I don't really know what the diffirence between the two is, but the price is virtually the same here and this one is newer so I put it there. PCPartPicker said some, implying not all Z170 boards may need a BIOS update, without providing a list however, so I don't know if it is the case for this one or not. But I can switch it up for a Z270 board I think, that will not be a problem because they are not a lot more expensive.
  10. Don't look at the prices PCPartPicker put there because those are US stores, it comes up to around €1650 where he can buy those things from, in Austria.
  11. Hello, a friend of mine is planning to build a new PC with one goal in mind, to do everything right, in accordance to his vision. The budget is quite high, €1600-1700 and this does not include storage, because he wants to just move his SSD+HDD over to the new machine. As mentioned in the title, looks are one of the most important factors here, the color scheme is black & white. Apart from that he prefers classy looks, so no weird shapes and just some white LEDs to light up the interior and that's it. I picked the Corsair 400C white case for him because he said it fits him perfectly and as I know Corsair it should be quality. So here is the rest of the build, don't look at the prices however because we are in the EU: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i5-7600K 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor ($242.89 @ B&H) CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X52 Liquid CPU Cooler ($149.99 @ B&H) Thermal Compound: Noctua NT-H1 3.5g Thermal Paste ($6.98 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: Asus PRIME Z270-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($159.99 @ NCIX US) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($105.99 @ Amazon) Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 Video Card ($629.99 @ B&H) Case: Corsair Carbide 400C White ATX Mid Tower Case ($94.99 @ NCIX US) Power Supply: Corsair RMx 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($99.99 @ Newegg) Case Fan: Corsair Air Series SP120 Quiet Edition 37.9 CFM 120mm Fan ($16.99 @ Newegg) Case Fan: Corsair Air Series SP120 Quiet Edition (2-Pack) 37.9 CFM 120mm Fans ($26.44 @ OutletPC) Case Fan: Corsair SP120 57.2 CFM 120mm Fans ($20.89 @ OutletPC) Case Fan: Corsair SP120 57.2 CFM 120mm Fan ($13.88 @ OutletPC) Total: $1569.01 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-01-12 16:17 EST-0500 He might not get a 1080 if in the meantime new cards are announced, he just said he wants the best single-core GPU he can afford without sacrificing other things, preferably EVGA as the ACX cooler not only looks really good but we also have positive experience with the noise levels and EVGA warranty. The 750W PSU is there to handle any future additions, possibly SLI or watercooling. Currently I put the NZXT X52 in there, it looks a lot better than air coolers and the budget can handle it. PCPartPicker says some Z170 boards might need a BIOS update before using Kaby Lake, though I don't know if that's true for the one I picked or not. Thanks for reading, I would like to know the opinions of others on this build I created.

    120mm AIO or Dark Rock 3?

    Thanks, I will look into those, they seem a lot cheaper as well.

    120mm AIO or Dark Rock 3?

    Yes, they don't actually sell it so I checked other local stores and they all have it for around 70€ so I would get it there, that's why I said I'm not forced to buy from there only and if there are other better options available at some other reputable local stores, I'm free to go for it.

    120mm AIO or Dark Rock 3?

    I'm not planning to OC unless that would boost the power so much I could bot on 2 accounts at once (would need more RAM anyway), since I don't do any other CPU heavy tasks, play only Dota...

    120mm AIO or Dark Rock 3?

    My CPU is the 4670K, I'm shopping mostly here but I am by no means bound to this one store: https://www.alza.sk/cooling/cpu-coolers/socket-1155/18852359.htm
