    Hi! Some of you may have seen me floating around insider and other places before. I've just got a small question. My other half is treating me to a new Desktop in a few weeks (Around 9, maybe more) and a Blade Pro at the end of the year. I've got a budget of $2000 with room for changes, nothing huge though. I'd like the feedback of the people on insider! Obviously this is a Razer themed build so the case is not going to change, though I do have a 1tb HDD I'm gonna snag from my current system xD However everything else is open to feedback! Here it is. (The links are going to as I'll be buying from a UK based retailer.

    CPU - Skylake i5 6600K -
    GPU - 980 TI EVGA Hybrid -
    RAM - 16GB Corsair LPX 3000MHz DDR4 (4x4) -
    Case - NZXT H440 Razer -
    PSU - 750w Corsair Builder CX750M Hybrid modular -
    CPU Cooler - NZXT Kraken x61 -
    Storage - 240GB Sandisk SSD -
    Motherboard - MSI Z170 Pro Gaming carbon -

    Seems good for the price, but I would much rather have a quad core i7. Also, even with the 1tb hdd, there doesn't seem to be enough storage space. The cooler is good, but not the best. I would have gone with either the Thermaltake 3.0 ultimate if you had the space or the cooler master nepton 240m. Power source seems nice, and it should power what you have already. Are you just going to keep one graphics card or sli bridge it later?

    I basically built that exact same system, but with Z97 (i7 4790K) last year.

    My advice: Get a quad core i7 6700k, and beef up your power supply.

    Lol wrong advice, even 750w is already waaaay too much.
    About SSD, take Samsung, they have better performance than Sandisks ;) Color is ok, but if you are not planning to overclock CPU water cooling is useless here :) (but I see you have k version). Also, it says that your CPU will handle RAM with only 2133Hz (don't know why).
    Rest is pretty ok ;)

    What makes you think I was referring to the wattage? He has a Corsair Builder series PSU, at the very least get a full modular and if possible one with electronic adjustable fans.

    As for wattage (you brought it up!) if he wants to run the cards in SLI, possibly do some overclocking or add a few more storage drives... Then maybe a slight upgrade would be in order.

    That's a really sweet setup! I'd be interested to see the two AIO loops in that case, I bet it'll look sick. I'd definitely second @Active13245 on the Samsung SSD - go for the 850 EVO (no need for the pro unless you're gunning for bragging rights).

    First thought was about wattage, if not, then sorry. And yeah, he could change Corsair or XFX for example.
    For now without oc
    With oc
    Still, there is also cheaper 750w option. As I mentioned before it should ok even for gtx 980ti SLI ;)
    I still think that 750w with gold/platinum would be totally enough even with SLI :)

    I believe that is an error as my friend has 3000Hz ram on his i5.

    The CPU cooler is okay and I don't know weather or not you should look at something like the Corsair h100i or not.

    As for the PSU it is fully capable of running this entire build. I have a friend with a similar build and it is fine on a 750w.

    Also if you can spare the cash get a i7 6700k instead of an i5. You won't see a huge difference but it will probably pay off in the long run.
