MSI Build Your Dream PC Guide Contest

philip

Feb. 1, 2016

PLEASE NOTE: The contest has officially ended. Huge thanks to MSI, and to everyone who entered. No further entries will be accepted at this time. Any further voting will not be counted.

Random Selection Winner:

Wheezy2Ez - The 4K Dream

Top Voted Winner:

Jipster69 - Jipster Edition =P Mini ITX! ~ GTX980 Ti! ~ i7-6700K!


 

We've teamed up with MSI for a build contest! Pick your parts, explain why they're the best, and possibly win your part list up to $2,000!

First off, a huge thanks to MSI for sponsoring this contest!

Here's how it works - create a build guide with the following criteria:

  • The title of the build guide must start with "MSI Build Your Dream PC Guide"
  • You must choose any MSI Z170A GAMING or MSI X99A GAMING motherboard.
  • You must choose any MSI NVIDIA 9XX series or MSI AMD 3XX series video card.
  • You must not exceed $2,000 USD for the total cost. Prices are subject to change every day, so make sure the total build price is under $2,000 at the end of the contest.
  • The build guide must have the following components: CPU, CPU Cooler, Motherboard, Memory, Storage, Video Card (can have SLI or Crossfire), Case, and Power Supply.

Two winners will be chosen:

  • One winner will be chosen by random
  • One winner will be chosen by the most upvotes (with a tie given to the guide with the most comments)

Click here for the full official rules.

Again, a huge thanks goes out to MSI for sponsoring this contest. Give them a follow and a shout on Twitter @msiUSA, and give their Facebook page a like too!

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Attempts to manipulate voting by entering multiple times, voting with duplicate/fake/sock accounts will be grounds for an account ban and disqualification.
  • Linking your guide link in multiple guides, forum topics, etc. will be treated as spam and will be deleted. Excessively spamming guide links will result in an account ban and disqualification.

Just posted my build guide. The Shadow.

Even if it doesn't win, I'm interested in having feedback on it simply as a build.

Good luck to everyone!

Apparently I may have an incompatible motherboard ....

@Philip Do you think next time could we have a list of compatible parts? That would help with a lot of confusion ....

MSI Marketing Rep -

Hi All,

I would like to say Thank You for participating and Thank to PCPartPicker (Staff). I know there are couple of flaws but this is our first time doing a contest which we thought would be fun and free. I definitely have taken all the feedback from alot of people and will make the next contest better. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me and I will try my best to answer them.

Thank you.

I really want to clear this up by getting a response from somone at MSi because I have found nothing conlcusive on the matter except for specualtion from other contest members. So, MSI representatives, do the MSI Z170A Krait Gaming Motherboards count. Please clarify as this could disqualify many of the builds out there and I know that I myself and many others have been trying to figure this out. Please answer this as soon as you can or maybe post an update about it in the contest rules.

Thanks

Philip you shouldn't host contests that have a "most upvotes" winner, because you are basically giving a free computer to jipster...

We're aware of the vote manipulation and those entries will be disqualified. No need to fret just yet.

  • 52 months ago
  • 5 points

I think it would be more fair if you got all the PCPP and MSI staff to have a vote on their favourite build, then choose that, rather than let upvotes decide, since some people are manipulating votes so badly.

  • 52 months ago
  • 4 points

Entries that violate the contest rules will be disqualified. Also, there will be a random winner that is independent of how many votes received. We'll also be applying lessons learned from this to future contests.

Gotta love politics. Surly, the leaders shouldn’t de disqualified, however I find it funny how many times they have sent/commented their build link to the public/individuals across the internet.

I suppose it does count as hard work, but nonetheless, I think it is hilarious how politically enmeshed any medium of voting becomes.

Only problem with that is that the contest clearly stated to share your link with friends, family, etc. so how would somebody receive their votes if new accounts can't vote?

[comment deleted]

[comment deleted by staff]
  • 52 months ago

That's correct. Only one build will count toward the contest. Though all three you mentioned in that case wouldn't qualify as the title is not correct. (One case where it doesn't pay to try and use fancy unicode letters...)

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

Hi, I would also like to ask you something. If we say..chose to delete a build we previously entered and submitted a new one. Would the new build count?

[comment deleted by staff]
[comment deleted by staff]

Those with 3 builds will not be counted. Only 1 Philip is correct as all the fancy letter wouldn't qualify him anyway.

Thank you.

If I could make a suggestion? I think the builds would get much more creative if builders weren't locked to ATX boards... I actually had a whole build based on the Z170I AC ITX motherboard, but now I've got to tear that down and turn it into something more conventional...

[comment deleted]

We did do 1 RANDOM but yeah we should eliminate the voting next time and choose by who we think has the best guide and most helpful.

Thank you for the feedback.

  • 52 months ago

Yes we plan to do this again but definitely better!

This is just a test run to get the PROS and CONS and to get feedback so we can improve.

Thank you.

  • 52 months ago
  • 2 points

No problem at all, but could the winner of this one not be able to win the next ? As, some people here have a huge following. (I'm looking at you jipster.) I don't know how much you all lurk here, I could be talking to the wind but, that would be something that would help the other builders out. I have no issue with jipster winning, he is an awesome guy, but 2 times in a row that would kind of get to the unfair part.

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

If the other rules remain the same, the "best and most helpful guide" really isn't the best criteria.

In this sort of contest, the goal is essentially to spend as much of the $2000 as possible-regardless of whether doing so would actually make sense. You don't get to keep the extra after all. I certainly wouldn't buy the components in my submission, but then the ones I would buy come out to a measly $1100. And all told, I'd much rather have $2000 of free stuff than $1100.

Just my 2 cents.

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

This is just a test run to see the PROS and CONS. We definitely appreciate your feedback and will make the next contest fair while fun for all.

Motherboard selection is still a little confusing. First guideline states that it has to either be Z170A GAMING or X99A GAMING. My one question with this is, does the GAMING have to come first in the name in order for the motherboard to qualify? Ex. X99A GODLIKE GAMING CARBON VS. X99A GAMING 9 ACK. Does it strictly have to fall in the order of Z170A GAMING/X99A Gaming or is it acceptable to use something that still contains those words but not in the exact order as in the case of the X99A GODLIKE GAMING CARBON?

Also maybe we should compile a list of qualifying motherboards as this seems to be confusing everyone. MSI can you help with that??

Thanks!!

  • 49 months ago

Its need to be X99 or Z170 chipset, in the name, there must be the chipset followed by A, and then anything after that as long as it has gaming in it

Like, I don't mean to be rude, but WTF why did this person win (the random winner) ? He just joined PCPP Feb. 4th. This isn't fair to members, like me, who have been with PCPP since November of 2014. I mean congratulations to him but I don't believe his part selection is that great. I mean really? The source 210 with 2 980Ti's?

Anyways, fun time with the contest, hope there's another one soon...

  • 51 months ago
  • 1 point

So what if they just joined? What makes them less deserving?

  • 51 months ago
  • 1 point

IMO it's just not fair. If you join the last day of the contest because your friend's friend friend told you about this awesome website and you could win a $2k PC and you do. That's just not fair to people that have been with this site for a long time and, I'm active in the PCPP community. Yes, it's a contest but they haven't really "contributed" anything great to the PCPP community.

I'm not whining because I didn't win, I mean congrats to the guy who won, I just think it's unfair in several different ways.

  • 51 months ago
  • 2 points

If you mean unfair as in the rules were not as you would have designed, then ok. But it was fair. It was a random selection, giving everyone an equal opportunity regardless of when they registered. Seniority in registration date does not mean you've earned extra contest credits. There are users who registered here in 2010, but they had the same opportunity as you.

  • 51 months ago
  • 1 point

Ha, I understand seniority in registration date doesn't mean I earned any extra "contest credits." Yeah, the rules were fair. Yes, a random selection, and yes, equal opportunity to everyone. I guess what I'm saying is that there could have been different rules.

  • 51 months ago
  • 0 points

The rules were posted before the contest began. I understand you don't like them, but you still entered.

  • 51 months ago
  • 1 point

Make up your mind. At one point you complain that jipster won because he's an established member now you're complaining that the other guy who won is not an established member. That being said the contest could have been run better and they are aware of that, it was a first try and they're learning. The draw winners build is dubious at best. Ranging from the solo 120GB SSD to the i5 w/ a 212 evo paired with SLI 980 TI's. I would have liked them to have people put a bit more effort/research in their explanation/build or skip them altogether.

  • 51 months ago
  • 1 point

My mind is maid up. I'm not complaining because I didn't win. I'm only "complaining" because the rules were twisted in several ways, and yes, I agree that people should have put more effort into their explanation and build.

I don't know were to submit my build but I hope its here! My build was planned for my needs of playing and recording high fps games and editing sound and video. I love my Msi laptop but If I win this contest this will be my first desktop since my parents wont buy a computer that can only be at either of their houses. I don't know if the contest includes Screens, software and headphones but I included those in my build so please let me know if that will disqualify me. My build total is $1782.12 USD $2243.64 CAD This is my build name I hope this is how I enter it >https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Jujub555/saved/#view=6TzQzy <

Thank you so much for this opportunity MSI, (and for my soon to be new PC >:) ) Its great to look at other people's builds who have more experience then me to see what they do differently. Best luck to everyone and may the best build win (aka not mine ? :/)!

You must choose any MSI Z170A GAMING or MSI X99A GAMING motherboard.

This seems moderately Intel-biased.

Can you guys clarify a few things:

  1. You say the parts list has to be under $2000 at the END of the contest? If we end up losing a critical rebate or a component jumps in price are we allowed to make changes to our builds to put us back under the limit? Do we have to make a new submission or are we just allowed to edit the old one?

  2. Are MIRs and combo discounts included? What about places that would normally charge tax and shipping?

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

I made my limit the 2000 subtotal, I wouldn't think mail in rebates or shipping would count (as this contest is international), I could be wrong though.

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

Their picture for not exceeding $2000 (step 8) specifically highlights the price after a MIR. Nothing else says one way or the other though.

https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/RtkcCJ/edit/#view=GcgG3C I had to resubmit this because I tagged it improperly.

This build was designed for maximum cost efficiency alongside an easy upgrade path, with a bit of color coordination. I chose storage, RAM, and PSU solutions based on an easy upgrade path.

With a 1TB SSD and a 2TB HDD, the user won't need to be upgrading their internal storage anytime soon (I prefer NAS anyway). The SSD also matches the color scheme. The SSD isn't the greatest, but it is certainly better than any HDD and for most people, the difference between this and something very high end like a 750 series SSD would not be noticeable.

32GB of RAM is a bit excessive, but it should last the user for a very long time, and hopefully won't be a bottleneck when considering future upgrades. It matches the color scheme nicely with a hint of red.

An 860W Platinum certified PSU is more than enough to handle a second 980 Ti in the future, and as components become more power efficient it should continue to last just fine. It also matched the color scheme.

The processor was chosen based on cost effectiveness. An i7-6700k is great, but it's more than $150 more than the i5-6600k. It was an easy choice to save money without losing much performance.

A 980 Ti was a no brainer for a $2000 pricepoint. I was considering SLI, but that would take up 70% of the budget, leaving only $600 for all other components. That's not quite enough.

The motherboard was also a no brainer. To qualify for the giveaway, I needed the best MSI Z170 Gaming board I can fit in. MSI's red/black color scheme is easy to follow with other components.

The case was chosen because it's my personal favorite. There's lots of room for cable management, more/better watercooling, and it is the red & black one, matching the color scheme.

Lastly, I chose the cooler because it's from a reputable brand, mostly matches the color scheme, and is overall a good AIO unit.

See the Cold Heated Dragon. This guide is a different spin on the conventional MSI gaming scheme. The symbolic GAMING colors on the outside and the ice cold heart of a GAMER on the inside.

Hello all, this is my re-entry for MSI Build Your Dream PC Guide THE TITANIUM IIsince the price of Intel PCI-E SSD in the first the take was too volatile making my build jump over the limit of USD 2000 so I ended up deleting that guide completely and made this one.

Haha I discovered this website about a week ago. I discovered the PC building hobby about a week before that. I ended up building a computer for this competition a couple hundred dollars under budget. I’m probably not going to win, chances aren’t 0 though, but I spent many a hour building something I would be very content with. Something beautiful that could love, finish my degree, and occasionally play Starcraft 2 on religiously.

Good luck everyone!

Everyone seems to be posting their build here , so I might as well do the same!

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/DomDominator/saved/gthbt6

So I chose the i5 6600K because the 6700K is WAY overpriced and a simple quad-core is enough for games! I chose the CPU COOLER because Corsair is legendary for their quality and it gives me all that juice out of the CPU as I can. I chose the MSI motherboard because its a very capable overclocker and has great aesthetics to match the black and red build nicely. I chose the RAM (memory) because 16GB is plenty for modern games and it has a blazing fast clock speed while keeping the CAS latency low. Plus, I made it two 8GB sticks leaving two slots for upgrades down the road. Here is where things get fun :) I splurged on getting a Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD which uses PCIE lanes instead of SATA III (don't even get me started on SATA III, I'll go on a long rant), one of the fastest SSDs on the consumer market, only beaten by the Intel 750 PCIE SSD. But it still has plenty of space to store you games and some videos if you are into Twitch, YouTube Gaming or just plain Youtube without all the live streaming hassle. I chose the MSI GTX 980 Ti Gaming which is great because it's a great overclocker because of its non-refrence PCB, which allows a great gaming experience, and looks great while not being too flashy. I went with the Noctis 250 Case(black and red) from NZXT because its a nice combo of the H440 and the Phantom 530 while bringing many new features such as a PWM fan speed controller and LED under glow lighting as well as backlighting for the NZXT logo on the side of the PSU (power supply) cover which helps hide all the already very clean, modular cables on the power supply. Speaking of power supply, I settled on a SuperNOVA 1000W P2 from EVGA which has an 80+ Platinum rating. This wattage and rating allows plenty of overclocking ability while being ready for SLI down the road. However, I would try to avoid SLI because the Skylake chipset only allows 16 PCIE lanes which is already not very good for 2-way SLI but is even worse while we have the Samsung PCIE M.2 SSD. In conclusion, this is a great build for a gamer which allows some upgrade possibilities one of which (SLI) is completely wasteful, but allows more practical upgrades to hardware such as the 6700K from Intel which has hyper-threading for added virtual cores, or if you plan on doing lots of video editing like me, you can upgrade to 32GB of memory to make the editing more efficient. I know this is a long description but if you have read this far, thanks for hearing me out. If you liked this please give me an upvote! THANK YOU FOR VIEWING!

@ MSI and Phil.

So I deleted my original 1937 Zenith Tombstone radio mini itx build to follow the MSI & PCPARTPICKER.COM contest rules of using the Z170A or X99A ATX only motherboard.

I know you wont make contest rules only to apply them to certain build and let others have exceptions. That would be unfair to everyone.

Thank you all for your integrity and honesty, also for your generousity and commitment to quality. Build on. Game on.

On a side note, I think you should be able to add a build guide when creating a completed build. This will connect all the features of PCPartPicker and will allow people to track how often their guides are being used. Just a thought though.

Well popular vote doesn't decide a winner in Democracy but I just feel a better system could have been used for the giveaway. I can't image you disagree with my comment about the other winner.

  • 51 months ago
  • 1 point

Random winner just means anyone who entered and met the minimum requirements had a chance to win, which would appeal to new people to the site like me. I came across this site a week before the contest started. My build was completely dysfunctional as I just picked 3-4 main components that I wanted to upgrade on my current build. I didn't need a new PSU, CPU Fan, or a top of the line video card at the moment. What I wanted was the 8 core intel i7 processor at $1000, a mobo to support it, and the m2 evo 950 512gb SSD, I'm more concerned with having a killer workstation rather than just gaming. So, I think it was fair overall.

Not to mention, giveaways are more to attract new users and generate traffic to make the site more profitable. So of course its going to be about rallying in others to vote for your own build, which should benefit the site itself to get more sponsors.

Im new to this contest and website i only signed up to try to win n by no means is my build good so i honestly dont know anything but im guessing this jipster guy is really popular here so thats why he won? and seeing he didnt follow the rules if it was some other random guy he would be disqualified but since this jipster guy is some sort of god in this site he got an exception so all in all it was a popularity contest which to me isn't fair at all..

Should've just done 2 random winners which probably jipster guy still would've won since this site seems very shady and closed community who only look out for their own..

This wheezy guy is probably some staff member that works here wouldn't be surprised..

Jipster didn't get an exception. He asked MSI if the motherboard was acceptable, and they said yes. They even confirmed it publicly in the comments of this blog post. It doesn't matter that it was Jipster. Other people asked clarifying questions for things not mentioned directly in the rules, and got answers too. Take your conspiracy talk somewhere else.

We get it - you don't like how it was run. That's enough.

You don't need to own the parts but you should do your best to say way they are the best for the build.

Like why use Kingston SSD over Samsung SSD?

Thank you

Just put whatever comes to mind when thinking of your build. Take mine for example. I had radiators in it so I called it (Rad)iCal 520;)

wow this contest really shows the ugly side of PCPP community

all just for a 2K part list

first was the massive downvoting of builds and comments

now even resort to vote rigging

i dont know if i should stay in this community when everyone is this toxic. :(

What about custom parts?

  • 52 months ago

Sorry no custom parts.

  • 52 months ago

So something like the EKWB Predator AIO would be considered a custom part and therefore would be not allowed?

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

If it's AIO then it should be okay.

Thanks

  1. Yes if it's 2 different person

  2. If we can buy it somehow then it should be okay, because if we can't then we will have to replace it with equal value HDD.

Thanks.

Hey Jipster! If you have time could you look over my submission? Should I have picked a 980 TI instead of SLI 980s?
