New Build and First Build

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, Im attempting to build a new desktop computer than I would use for normal activities as well as gaming and streaming if possible. Ive used online guides, as well as read reviews of the products on Newegg in order to create my build. I was hoping I could get some critiques on the build or possibly better alternatives for parts if they are too excessive or not. 

 

- Rosewill Computer Case - CHALLENGER - ATX Mid Tower - Black, Gaming

 

- Intel Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake

 

 

- GIGABYTE GA-H110M-A (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel H110 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
 
- EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC GAMING
 
 
- Seagate Desktop HDD 1TB  Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
 
- SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 250GB Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) 
 
- EVGA SuperNOVA 650 GS 220-GS-0650-V1 80+ GOLD 650W Fully Modular EVGA  Power Supply
 
 
- G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Intel Z170 Platform Desktop
 
-Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
 
 
The total price of these components is $1,109.31 currently on Newegg. Ideally I would like to stay as close to $1000 as possible. Thank you in advance for any advice/comments on the build!

You have an ATX case, but a micro ATX motherboard. Which should work, but imo one kinda defeats the purpose of the other.

 

A 170 board would probably be better than the 110 board, but I'm not sure. Maybe the only difference is it being micro?

Only question that comes to mind is if you intend on overclocking...if answer is yes then you need to get a z170 motherboard and if not then why not just get a regular 6600 and save some bucks that way :)

 

edit: also if you go with a regular 6600 you can use that mobo and get a smaller case which im sure will save a bit more...http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA0723W13281this tower here is still a rosewill just micro and kinda looks the same also $20 cheaper

As others have said, spending more on a z170 motherboard means you can overclock with a 'k' processor.  Getting one without the other is kind of silly (in this case, because you're looking at a 'k' processor without getting a z170 motherboard).  Everything else looks fine and if you want the mid-tower specifically for a bit more room then it will work because it does also support Micro ATX motherboards.
