This was my first ever Pc Build, so I was going in kinda blind. I think that it turned out well. I use it for gaming mostly, but also do some 3D modeling in blender.

Part Reviews


Great performance. I was able to get 4.1Ghz on all cores no problem. Under load it peaked at about 78C. However, it is very picky about Ram, so be sure to check your motherboards compatibility list.

CPU Cooler

Keeps my R5 1600x very cool. At 4.1Ghz on all cores I was hitting 78C at max. The infinity mirror also looks gorgeous, and the software is very easy to use.

if you have a 1080ti you should invest in a 4k monitor

A 4k monitor that is 180Hz stock? Find me one of those under $750 then I'll agree with you.

I hook it up to my 4k tv for some stuff, I rather have 180hz for games.
