Description

Hello everyone, I have another build this time using the regular Core V1 case instead of the snow edition. (Do actually prefer the look of the snow version.) I actually got the mobo, ram and processor off of hardware swap as a combo deal.

The SSD was a deal from Best Buy that was local here in the city, and the HDD was purchased on Ebay, and I have tested the HDD with SMART and it came back great.

The GPU was by far the best deal considering the mining circumstances. Was able to pick up local from a guy on the Facebook Marketplace.

The tower I believe I paid retail for it from Newegg, just don't usually bother with mail in rebates.

The power supply was from EVGA B-Stock, and as worked great so far.. would still recommend a fully modular psu for this case or any itx. This one was Semi-Modular and the cable management was better then my last with a full size, but still a little bulky.

And last but not least, the monitor. Was purchased on Ebay, did come with two little spots of color bleed but they are small and not very noticeable. Great looking monitor so far and I love the ultrawide.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU for the right price.

Motherboard

Solid motherboard, had the mobo flashed for when I decide to upgrade to quad core.

" Core i3+GTX1060 " did you face any bottleneck ?? try this website for bottleneck calculating www.thebottlenecker.com

So far ran firestrike and the tests came back fine. I know there's a website that did bottleneck tests for the pentium 4560, and there was no noticeable bottleneck all the way up to the 1060 6gb. Anything after was significantly bottlenecked.

I know it's a little bit different CPU but the 6100 clock speeds are higher.
