    Just a quick side note here: A Nvidia graphics card, like the 1050 ti, will not be able to take advantage of AMD FreeSync. You will want to look into an AMD card if you want to utilize that feature. :)
    That part i know. But i believe either the 1050 ti and 1060 3gb can use a feature of adaptive v sync.

    I will keep it short, sweet and simple.

    Please read Steve's post #5 a few more times. A lot of wisdom there.

    My points:

    1. For a persons first build I would suggest using a larger case.
    2. Use a case with many fan options.
    3. Never cheep out on the power supply. Every thing in the case runs off of the power supply. The power supply is the roots of the entire system.
    4. Do your homework. It will take more time doing research/homework than it does to build the computer. Understanding what will work with what and how it all fits together will save you time and money. At the end you will get what you expected for your first build.


    Caution


    Building computer can become habit forming.

    On the Water Cooling. Not sure I would go with both a first build / over clock and first "custom water loop" first try, of course I'm cautious.

    Again as the members have been stating you may want more space for first build mixing all these firsts. I think the kit you picked has a pump / reservoir that fits in two 5.25" bays. Can't recall if I saw those on that case. Likely other mounting options.

    With these kits please understand how you will fill and drain them.

    Not saying don't do it, just research.

    Run through the PSU calculations again as the demands are higher when over clocking.
    There are a significant number of PC that get worked up for freezes, and unexpected reboots.

    Personally, for a first build I wouldn't go with watercooling, ITX cases are hard enough already to work on. Also, watercooling a 1060 and a tiny little cute i3 is a bit pointless. Get a good aircooler (that will fit the case offcourse)

    Also, I think that gaming monitors are overrated, get something cheaper and spend the extra cash on a Core i5. Unless you earn thousands of dollars in gaming tournaments all over the world, a slightly slower refreshrate doesn't matter.

    I personally like Iyama's, I have B2483HSU's at work and XB2483HSU's at home, they are cheap, plenty of options connector-wise, good image quality, height adjustable and everything.

    Oh, take PSU calculators with a grain of salt. They might give somewhat of an indication of power requirements but if you take a power supply with a 100W less then calculated, its usually still enough.

    I completed my pc build with the parts above. My original setup was with the cougar qbx case but it was a hassle dealing with cable management. So i instead went with the phanteks enthoo evolv itx. Pics posted on another thread. Thanks guys!
