I have always wanted to be able to game on PC for a while after going round to someones house and seeing the difference from console. I should have built one earlier but I bought a Surface Pro 4 for uni and realised that it spent all of its time docked at my desk so it was a waste for me. I spend the last few months deciding on parts to buy and deciding what looks the best. Wasn't planning on spending a this much but I thought if I am going to do it I will do it 'properly'.

I really happy with how everything performs except for my monitor. I had one monitor for my Xbox and one for my surface so they are only 60Hz. I will be buying a 1440p 144Hz monitor in coming weeks. Also nearly happy with the looks just need to add some LED's in the case of some sort and some sleeved cables. Also need some longer HDMI cables as you can see them!

Still getting used to using a keyboard and mouse though as I was pretty decent at FPS games on console.

Hope you enjoy!

Part Reviews


Perfect for what I need it for. Yet to overclock it.

CPU Cooler

Looks very nice, very good customisation options and keeps the CPU nice and cool!


Nice bios and all the inputs I need. Also has some white parts which is why I chose it!


3200 was cheaper than the other in white so yeah..


Got it at steal of price on cyber Monday. Not as fast as other but who can complain!

Video Card

Runs every game that have played on the highest settings. Just need a 1440p monitor and more than 60Hz refresh rate to make the most out of my card. And it has RGB!


Was between normal S340 and the Corsair Carbide 400c then I found this had been just realised in the UK so I went for it as it was the same price as the Corsair but has tempered glass and better cable management :)

Power Supply

Its a highly rated power supply that does what it should do!

How is the Kraken X62 holding up? Seen a lot of reviewers saying that their pump broke at the 5-6 month mark.

I'd like to know as well. I noticed my Ryzen 3 getting a little too hot for my liking (nothing major, 65°ish) and want to upgrade but hate how air coolers look. The Kraken just looks so good

Congrats on completing your first build - looks great! Those NZXT cases and AIO water coolers add a lot of curb appeal.

You can use your Xbox One controller with it instead of keyboard + mouse - just need a bluetooth adapter.

Thanks! You can plug the controller in via USB as well but there isn't much point in using a controller in FPS games on PC! I will just have to get better!

Nice build, my dude! Just don't see enough of those i7 6700K and GTX 1080 builds. Nice case, but I'd work on some more cable management. + 1!

Does the Kraken x62 come with already applied thermal paster?
