PC Build – Watch me assemble a mid-price gaming PC


Here is a video of me assembling a gaming PC for the family, its a mid-price machine. Component cost is £1000, the cost and build is for the PC unit only – no keyboard, screen or ancillaries!

Here are the components :

– Intel Core 6M Cache,3.30 GHz Processor (i5-6600) (Turbo Boost 3.9 GHz)
– Corsair CMK16GX4M2A2400C14R Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2400Mhz CL14 XMP 2.0 High Performance Desktop Memory Kit, Red
– Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 3 EU Motherboard
– Cooler Master RR-212E-16PK-R1 Hyper 212 Evo “Ultra High Performance, 4 Direct Contact Heat Pipes, Universal CPU Cooler” Black Fan
– Windows 10 Home 32-bit/64-bit English International
– MSI AMD R9 390 Gaming Graphics Card (8 GB, PCI-E 3.0, GDDR5, 512 Bit, DVI-I, HDMI)
– EVGA Supernova 750 W Gold Power Supply Unit
– Fractal Design Define R4 FD-CA-DEF-R4-BL-W ATX Midi PC Case Black / Pearl
– Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB 2.5 inch Solid State Drive

Obviously I am just a happy amateur, you get to see me make a couple of minors errors along the way 🙂 If you want to see an expert build a PC then go to somewhere like :

Hope you enjoy the vid!




  1. Hi Amoeba Man ! Do you think this is a Good PC list. If you can you can change any PC part that does work with the build.

    * MSI 1060
    * Z170 X Gaming 3
    * Kingston HyperX FURY 16GB
    * CoolerMaster Hyper 212X
    * Corsair RM-750x 750W
    * Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
    * Western Digital 1TB SATA3 Blue
    * Intel Core i5-7600K Processor

    Thats my PC build I have in mind of building please feel free to change any parts of the build Thanks !

  2. Hi this might be a late comment but can a z170 gaming 3 motherboard CoolerMaster Hyper 212X CPU Cooler and Kingston HyperX fury 16g ram can run a MSI 1060 3G and also do u have a email to talk to u about my build thanks

  3. What a nice build mate! Your voice is nice & quiet, I really like the fact that you are organized and good at managing time, you earned a subscriber and a like! 😀

  4. I plan to use the exact same motherboard and RAM (but higher speed) in a build this year and this video proved to be very helpful!

    I also have the Cooler Master 212 but mine is the slightly different X model, for the price is is a very good performer indeed, perfect if your not gaming for hours on end and are a general user. I plan to use an older Corsair non modular power supply that is more than enough for the single 1070 I plan to use.

    It's strange really, the bigger PC build tip channels very rarely show affordable stuff like this, my system is going to be about the same, or maybe just over £1000 and its truly more than enough for ultra quality at 1080p which is the monitor I already have, more money saved on not getting a higher resolution one, well not yet anyway.

    The only bad part about this video was the audio, your voice sounded like a super bad MP3 downloaded from an early 2000s music site.

  5. Hello Im using the parts of this build and going to use the motherboard,the hard drive and the Intel core but i cant find any of the other part in-store so i could buy,but I can't buy the parts online please can you build an other PC list for please thanks

  6. Amoeba man when you don't want to used the Intel CPU cooler what do you recommend to used but not that I don't care about the price, please respond to this thank you

  7. thanks for making this video, i ordered this mobo and will expect it any day now. When it comes to the Mobo drivers, what should i watch out for? You said to revert back to F4? How will i know what driver is currently in the board?

  8. Is the Z170K G1 Gaming motherboard any good? Because I've ordered it on Amazon and I'm wondering if it's good or not, I need your review on it. Return it or Cherish it?

  9. Board shape is out of ATX spec so the stand offs don't meet the screw holes in some places……how many of the screw holes couldn't you use ???? Just read a review about this but they didn't say.

  10. Your lucky that doard didnt short out on that antistatic bag..On the outside they usaly have metal coating to act as a feraday cage sorta. once you take the board out stash the bag .

  11. Hello, friend, good morning ! Pretty much this your case. I take a doubt: You can disable the LEDs red for bios or jumpers or they are always connected? Thank you.
