Welcome to the Love Your PC Build | Valentines Day Special Overkill Intel Build. This PC isn’t about trying to save a few dollars but compromising performance. This PC is all about performance and overkill. Since you guys liked the full setup build from a month ago so this is a full setup as well. Anyway lets get started.
CPU: Intel Core i7 6700k
The best CPU out there which aren’t Intel Xeons. Starts at 4 GHz and can be overclocked to much higher speeds. It also supports DDR4 and has 8M Smart Cache. If you are reading this you probably already know what this is.
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i v2
This is also one of the best CPU coolers out there. This a water cooler but obviously water is better than air cooling and can overclocked to even higher speeds than an air cooler. This was also reasonably priced and fits in our case.
Thermal Compound: Arctic Silver 5 High Density Polysynthetic Silver 12g Thermal Paste
Just in case and people who want it.
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VII Formula Atx Motherboard
This is also one of the best motherboards available right now. It obviously support DDR4 and LGA1151. It supports up to 64GB of RAM and up to 2 way SLI. It also looks awesome and match the other parts like the fans.
Kingston HyperX Fury Black 4x8GB (16GB)
I did not use 64GB because that’s not needed and wanted to spend the budget somewhere else. Kingston’s RAM performs great and like always costs less.
Storage: Kingston SSSNow V300 Series 240GB and WD Black 3TB HDD
As mentioned in the SSD VS HDD article it’s best to use both so I did. I used the Kingston SSD for its price to performance ratio. ( Means you get a lot for your money. Also not expensive but performs well) I also used the WD Black 3TB because it was on sale and also performs great.
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX Titan Z Superclocked (2 way SLI)
This is where a little of the money that I had went into. This costs more than Titan Xs but performs slightly better. Then now you have them in 2 way SLI so this PC is a Beast. This does increase cost by about $3000 a- $4000 but you also increase performance. Just like the Titan X this also has 12GB of GDDR5 memory.
Case: Cooler Master Storm Stryker ATX Full Tower Case (White)
I honestly think this case looks awesome. It has a clear side panel and has a beautiful white Finnish with black finnish in the front and some other parts. This is the most expensive case I’ve ever bought but I think it’s worth it.
Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA T2 1600W
This was way to overkill since this only consumed about 1200W at most but to be safe I just bought it. This is a fully modular power supply with an amazing 80+ Titanium rating.
OS: Windows 10 Pro
Something you need and want. Also if you can buy all of this you probably don’t care spending $40 extra for this.
Case Fan: Cooler Master SickleFlow 69.7 CFm 120mm Fan (3x)
This was at a super low price, went well with the white case and the red motherboard. I did get 3 to replace all the stock fans in the case to make it look better. You can put 2 more if you are going to air cool the CPU.
Fan Controller: NZXT Sentry 3 Fan Controller
I did get a controller for this build just because you can afford it.
Monitor: Acer Predator X34 100Hz 34″ Moniter (8x)
Yes my friends I got 8 monitors just because I felt like that. This is pretty much where all the leftover money went. This is a 4k curved display and widescreen. This is the best monitor out there you can buy and also the most expensive.
Keyboard: Logitech G910 Orion Spark Wired Gaming Keyboard
This was on sale so I bought it but other keyboards are good too. This was a omeron key switch which isn’t a cherryMX but still good.
Mouse: Logitech G502 Wired Optical Mouse
I know the MX Master is better but didn’t have much money left when I got to this point. This is still a great mouse with many buttons and has a cool look to it.
Headphones: Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma Channel Headset
This one is probably not the best choice for sound but I liked the look so I just bought it.
Speaker: Logitech Z906 500W 5.1CH Speakers
This was a great deal at the store and had good ratings online so I just bought it. It comes with so many speakers so thats good.
UPS: CyberPower Cp1350AVRLCD UPS
This was a non server ups that had pretty good ratings online and didn’t cost much. This I think actually is one of the best UPS in the market right now.
Well after building this and using this for a hour I think this is the best PC you can build yourself. This did cost me $15,500 in total but it was totally worth buying. I would recommend this build to anyone that can afford it. Well I guess this wraps it up for today and I’m super tired. This was written in a red-eye flight to New York and in the hotel after that and because of the jet lag I feel super tired. Anyway thanks for reading and see you tomorrow for a special PC build.
