This $2000 gaming PC build for 2017 will smash the latest AAA titles at 1080p, 1440p and even work well as a 4K gaming PC! This gaming PC , housed inside the highly anticipated Cooler Master H500P case not only performs great, but looks the part too! With 2 striking 200mm RGB fans at the front of the case this chassis will keep your system cool, with all the RGB integration you could ever want! The case supports a verticle GPU bracket, to show of the ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1080 8GB chosen in this build nicely, a good front IO and huge tempered glass side panel!

For the CPU in this build I used the brand new Intel Core i5 8600k, with a base clock of 3.6Ghz and a boost clock of 4.3GHz this CPU boasts impressive single threaded performance, for older games like CS:GO, GTA V, DOTA 2, League of Legends and many more! It also features 6 cores, making the CPU great for newer titles optimised for the use of 4+ cores, such as Battlefield 1! The CPU has a 95W TDP, used the new Intel LGA1151 socket and provides a good improvement over the KabyLake and Skylake CPUs on the Z170 and Z270 chipsets! For the CPU cooler, I kept it clean and simple with Cooler Master’s Hyper 212 EVO, a relatively small cooler that gives good leverage for overclocking, with a nice design and great value price tag! For the motherboard iin this build I opted for the ASUS Maximus X Hero, a Z370 motherboard with SLIS support, great RGB support, with ASUS AURA SYNC, USB 3.1, Type C and dual channel RAM support. The motherboard has a great design, with a relatively neutral colour scheme, that performs well and sits at the middle of ASUS’ Z370 motherboard line-up.

For the RAM in this build ADATA’s SPECTRIX D10 is a DDR4 memory kit with great RGB implementation, that looks great and overclocks well! For storage a WD Blue 1TB and Samsung 960 EVO give you a lot of mass storage for large Steam libraries and fast boot up drives, with a snappy SSD M.2 C: drive! For the graphics card, the ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 8GB STRIX, has a great 3 fan cooler, with a good factory overlcokc, a superb design with RGB support, Displayport, HDMI and DVI outputs for 4K gaming and enough power for even the best VR gaming setups! Overall this INSANE 4K gaming PC build for under $2000 is the best CoffeeLake PC build for 2017!
