    What's this? Another build log? You're goddamn right!



    Jokes aside, this one isn't for me xD This is going to be my dad's powerhouse for the next few years. Let's take a look at specifications shall we?

    Specifications:

    • CPU: Intel Core i7 7700
    • CPU Cooler: Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 120 (Finally managed to convince him!)
    • Motherboard: MSI H270 Gaming M3
    • RAM: 2x8GB ADATA DDR4 2133Mhz
    • GPU: MSI GTX 1060 Armor 6GB (Sadly, the Gaming X was out of stock)
    • PSU: FSP Hyper 600W 80 Plus
    • SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
    • HDD: WD Black 2TB
    • Chassis: Some standard black/red mid-tower...


    This will be put together at the same time as my personal build, so stay tuned for updates!

    Went with the Samsung 850 EVO 250GB since there was a 5 week waiting period for the 960 EVO... Oh well, still a very capable SSD.

    Liking the parts list you have there. I am rocking the gaming m5 mobo and 960 Evo nvme ssd with the I7 7700k.

    How are you finding the BIOS on the MSI board? This'll be my first time using their boards as a base for my personal rig as well as my dad's. Only had experience with ASUS ROG boards from back in the day xD

    Well my 1st MSI Board as well. But I have honestly no complaints. Just need to get the mystic lights to work with my rgb strips though. Think there might be an issue with the current version they have, as the issue was the program itself. but have not checked yet to see if a new one is out yet.

    Nice build man. Basically a Kaby Lake version of my Skylake. That mobo does look very nice with some nice cosmetic finishes
