https://pcpartpicker.com/list/z2Rgyf

i have bought some parts for my pc but i wanted to know if the r1 universal is a good cooler, because where i live all good aio coolers are sold out and i dont want any liquid cooler to leak and destroy the components also how far i can overclock my 7700k with the r1 universal?

More about build
  1. Great build, you should be able to get a good overclock with that cooler it's pretty top rated. Good luck!
  2. Very good build. I am not familiar with that cooler but AIO are usually no better than a good air cooler
  3. RAM is over the top and is generally poorly priced. Mobo is also overkill, as is the CPU cooler.
    You only need something like the Mugen 5 or Cryorig H5 for the i7 at most.
    What retailers are you using?
    What monitor do you have?
    What's your budget in local currency?
  4. choose another case if u dont like this :

    i already bought the 7700k and ram, i wanted to get the most out of my processor like in terms of over clocking and my monitor is ASUS VX24AH 1440p
  6. Not a good value list.
    We still need a local retailer and budget in local currency.
    Just to prove a point though, you can get far better performance for the money than what has been posted above in the same price range.

    ohh well the retailer would be http://www.pakdukaan.com/
    and pc parts here normally cost 20% extra its stupid but it is what it is and i forgot to mention i do have a samsung 850 evo vnand 500gbs ssd and the budget would be $1700 or less and in local currency that would be 170,000rs
  8. Sure thing, i'll make a list. :)
    I assume you need monitor included?

  11. Small problem, the site only has Thermaltake power supplies, and only Zotac GPUs, is there anywhere else you can buy from?

    http://www.industech.pk/
    and im gonna get the gpu from amazon or newegg
  13. What monitor do you already have?
    Newegg is generally alright for shipping, some cards have high GST taxes though.
  14. Wait for the case to come back in.
    If buying the GPU from newegg you should get it quite a bit cheaper, bringing you below budget.

  15. Best answer
    Look at the top right side of this page and ask for a quote on this site, it's an extremely reputable site which ships items from the US to other countries: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125955&cm_re=GTX_1080_Ti-_-14-125-955-_-Product
    http://www.bigapplebuddy.com/buy-from-the-usa-newegg-online-store-international-shipping/

    If the cost ends up higher than local prices, just save up and get what I posted.
    Your monitor should be at least 1080p 144hz or 1440p/4k in order to fully take advantage of the GPU.

    I don't believe amazon ships to pakistan, but here's the GPU from there as well, it's the same card: https://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-GeForce-GAMING-Graphic-N108TGAMINGOC-11GD/dp/B06XXJMDTM/ref=sr_1_3?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1495200495&sr=1-3&keywords=GTX+1080+Ti


    im using a ASUS VX24AH it a 1440p monitor

  19. MERGED QUESTION
    Question from herdleys : "gigabyte AORUS GA-Z270X-GAMING 7 vs asus z270 rog hero ix ?"

    herdleys said:
    you read the title, so which one do you prefer?


    Chugalug_ said:
    I'd get the Gaming 7, offers more for the cash, the Hero is more visual oriented.
    Would you like me to part out a system for you?
    If so just give me a budget.
    If you're going as high end as I think you are, x299 is worth waiting for.

    the x299 motherboards are just wayyyy too pricey and the 7740x doesnt seem much different from the current 7700k,i think lol. my processor is an i7 7700k ,h100i v2 , rm 750x psu ,gtx 1080 all inside a corsair 570x like my main focus is on 1440p gaming on windows 10 and some kali linux stuff so for that i thought the rog hero ix would be okay even tho its overpriced and i dont mind rgb but the rgb on aorus are just crazy.


    Chugalug_ said:
    So what's your budget?
    Include W10 cost and monitor cost in this budget.

    What's your budget this time @OP?


    herdleys said:
    1500$-1700.

    In local currency.

  20. You're in pakistan, stop making lists in USD, GST and shipping will kill you on pricing.
    Not even possible on 90% of items.
    Get the list I posted previously, why on earth did you make another thread?
