Do you have certain components which you know want to be RGB and would you want the components to be RGB themselves or the whole case through RGB LEDs? Also, are you looking for a glass case on one panel at least to see the RGB or do you not need to be able to see directly through the case?

Hope this information post was helpful  ?,

I would have put an RX 580 in there. And maybe a bigger cooler. like the dark rock pro. maybe an AIO. it really does its job on the 8700K

RX 580 performs worse than the 1070, The arctic cooler is fine enough for a moderate overclock.

 

I'm sure its not OP's main goal

as long as we are staying 1080p a 580 should be more then enough right? I myself use the RX 480 still and it works perfectly on my 2 1080p monitors.
Would you say the GTX 1070 would give me a better experience ?

Oh for sure, though the 1070 should last a good while on 1080p on ultra. Even for 1080 or 1440 high refresh in the future

This is a value system which is quite power efficient, contains plenty of storage, WI-Fi capability, and includes the GTX 1060 in the 6GB variant. This build also contains a some gaming peripherals such as a keyboard and a high resolution monitor and is within the 1200 dollar price range which is why I have included it within this thread. All you will need to start playing is a computer mouse which PC Parts Picker would not let me insert into the build for some reason.

Forgot to add a thermal compound to this system build, a good thermal compound will ensure effectiveness of your cooling system, I will link a thermal paste product within this post.

 

link to the aforementioned product:   https://www.amazon.com/Phoneix-Pack-Compound-Performance-Heatsink/dp/B0794W9XHC/ref=sr_1_5?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1543275910&sr=1-5&keywords=thermal+paste

 

*note that this would make the total build here costing the cost of $ 1167.83

I would say dont use any paste at all. less in between the cooler and the CPU will speed up cooling. i myself am not using any paste and i am running under 40C in games.

I am here to learn, please correct me if im wrong or you see me putting bs on your screen!

The product which I linked comes like in a pack of 5 tubes for $ 2.70 which is good when it wears out and needs to be reapplied or for use in other computer systems. I have seen toothpaste being used as thermal paste (I would not recommend doing it though) and it has been able to keep some CPUs under good temperature thresholds. some thermal compound should be applied under the cooler (between the processor and the cooler) to improve heat transfer because the cooler does not exactly contact the processor's integrated heat spreader and there is some gap present which depending on your processor and cooling setup may make it be necessary or highly optimal. Compared to the budget of $1200 around three dollars for a thermal paste product seems reasonable and in this case should lower temperatures to a degree that it makes sense in terms of value for cooling performance in this setup.
