Hello everyone!

I thought I might as well share my first ever PC build with the LTT forums because why not? Its a pretty generic build with no modding or a

custom liquid cooling loop but I am pretty proud of it.

 

The parts:

Processor - Intel i5-4670K

Motherboard - Asus Maximus VII Gene

RAM - Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB 1866MHz

GPU - EVGA GTX 660 SC

SSD - Samsung 840 evo 250GB

HDD - WD Black 1TB

PSU - Corsair RM 650

Case - Corsair Obsidian 350D

This build is actually an upgrade of my old PC that had an i5-650 and Dell motherboard as it was originally a Dell XPS 8100 but I upgraded the CPU

Cooler, PSU, GPU and RAM and moved it in to a 350D.

THE FINISHED BUILD


 


Here are some photos of the finished build!


I have two Akasa Vegas 60cm white LED strips


around the edge of the inside of the case.


I also changed the stock fans on the H100i to


SP120s and connected the to the motherboard


with a 3pin fan splitter.

Bit of a strange combo of parts but not bad.

Very clean!

Specs: 4790k | Asus Z-97 Pro Wifi | MX100 512GB SSD | NZXT H440 Plastidipped Black | Dark Rock 3 CPU Cooler | MSI 290x Lightning | EVGA 850 G2 | 3x Noctua Industrial NF-F12's

Bought a powermac G5, expect a mod log sometime in 2015

Corsair is overrated, and Anime is ruined by the people who watch it

I liked it better with the green pcb and green ram.

Why would you say that? :P  I'm planning to upgrade my GPU to a 970 after Christmas when I have some more money but I mainly use this PC for music production and video editing

If I'd had a black PSU and all black cables it would've looked pretty good! But I really needed a new CPU and I love ASUS boards and I thought I might as well go for the best. (Plus I think the Gene looks amazing)

You used an ROG motherboard with an I5, you used an H100i on an I5, and you used a corsair PSU...As well as a corsair case, but the 350d is one of the few good ones so i won't complain.

Man this built looks fantastic. And the last pics with the whole setup are amazing. You are a music producer I guess. What kind of music are making? And the synth looks like a war machine for music production. What is it actually?

 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I honestly don't see why any of these are strange choices? :D ROG motherboards probably have the best features on the market and aesthetics (imo). Why does it matter that its an i5? You don't have to use an i7 just because its an ROG board. The 4670k still gets hot when you overclock it so the H100i keeps it nice and cool and I can have the fans really low so the system is basically silent. Don't see any problems with Corsair PSUs either.

Thanks a lot man, much appreciated! Indeed I am a music producer, I mainly make progressive house and stuff  :P Its just a MIDI keyboard, the MPK49 from Akai and I love it, such a powerful tool with the faders, assignable knobs and MPC pads!

ROG motherboards are very expensive, you're spending a lot more proportionally on your mobo than your CPU, same with the H100ia s far as cooling is concerned, and corsair RM series PSUs had some problems with components. They've been fixed, but most retailers still have old stock of the bad units

Yeah man, I have many friends producer and I really know what you are talking about. Actually most of them are using analog synths. They are in a Drum and Bass and are making a lot of stuff these days. Hope everything will work for you fine. And more and more deep bass lines.
