My First PC ever!!! (If the pre-built one my parents bought in 2007 isn't counted)

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
After months of working 7 days/week (45-50hrs) I now can build my very first PC ever!!! (if don't count the first PC I got, which is prebuilt) after set my Nikon D7200 plan aside. I always thought of having a military-inspired PC, especially the buttons. After weeks of researching, I found this gem. I can't believe that there exist such a case like this. First I intended to get the Military Green version but I thouhgt of the Gunmetal one as I'm getting MSI Z170A Krait Gaming, which has black and white theme, my fav biggrin.gif. Then I went to Fry's to get one, but they didn't have Gunmetal so I got Military Green anyway.
This system is expected to be able to run before December 13 this year (2015) as I'll send my laptop Dell Inspiron 15 7548 away that day lol. By that day it'll have all the basic components, but the final one will be:
CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 Skylake
Mainboard: MSI Z170A Krait Gaming
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) possibly upgrade to 32GB
CPU Cooler: Corsair H55
PSU: Corsair CX750
SSD: Samsung 850 Pro 256GB for Windows
HDD: WD Black 1TB for software and gaming, WD 4TB for data
VGA: Propably GTX970, but I'm still deciding, any thought is welcomed.
and the important thing: My CORSAIR VENGEANCE C70 in Military Green :3
Again, all the comment and recommends on my system are welcomed as I haven't bought them yet, so that I can make adjustment
I'm painting and modding it to look like a military device, still have 1 month and a half ahead so it'll form slowly
these are my first touches, sorry for bad picture quality guys
Look at that black plastic border around the front, they merge into the surrounding...not impressive


time to play with the masking tape



Now everybody will know to stay away from the front face, some air intake indicator will be up there soon



Now, to prevent someone from smashing though the window to reach inside, let's put some instruction on






looks not sharp, I will improve on the rest
that's all for today, I'll continue doing the letters later this week

Congrats!

It's OK, I guess... for a first PC...

Everything looks good, but that CX power supply... can you change that, or do you have it already?
post #4 of 37
Nice build,

would indeed change the PSU if possible,

Would upgrade the Intel Core i7-6700, to a K-series, its worth it to be able to Overclock it, even a little.

what PSU I should change to?
about the K series, I'm thinking about that as the price of the i7-6700K now is dropped, $319 at Micro Center only $20 different to the non-K one. And that price is what in my plan for CPU biggrin.gif

I've been waiting for years to this. Can't believe I can build this just 2 years after moving to the U.S.

PSU is one of your most important investments in the system since it's the 1st and last line of defense for your components in the computer. it's not something to skimp on. kinda like you don't want to buy cheap tires on your brand new Ferrari smile.gif

with that said, you'll want to follow the link runnin426850 supplied and look at something in the 500 to 600w range for your system. crosscheck what's on sale at microcenter or wherever you intend to buy the part. any PSU on that list is considered "good" to "absolute best". if you have specific questions about a few PSU's on this list, then make a post on the PSU section and shilka will likely offer some very good advice as to which way to go.
