Largely a gaming rig, but with uni stuff also being written on it and other general computer use (Windows for gaming, Ubuntu otherwise). Also wanted it to look nice as I wanted to put it on my desk.
Paired this rig with a Combaterwing mouse, K90 vengeance keyboard and HyperX could II headset.
Great CPU. Does everything I need it to comfortably and even on the stock cooler it doesn't get hot. Wish Intel hadn't blocked overclocking but still
One of the cheapest ITX boards with WIFI when I bought it, and the cheapest with actually good reviews. Had no problems so far and the orange lighting gives a beautiful glow off the white interior of the case. UEFI is easy to use as well.
It's RAM. It works. The low profile heat spreaders actually look cool and are useful in this tight a space
As above, though I prefer the red. Only reason I didn't get a set was that this was an upgrade later.
Mine was the CS900, but that wasn't on here. Either way its an SSD and consequently fast - I only got this one over any other because it was on sale.
I didn't actually buy this, I stole it from an old laptop that got broken and used it basically as a game dump drive. Not the fastest, but gets the job done and is quieter than most HDD i've used.
Great card, runs every game maxed out at 1080p, 60 fps+ except ARK (what can max ARK out?), fans don't even spin up at idle or light gaming load. I got 1393 Mhz on the OC before it started artefacting. The RGB lighting is also nice, but in this case you can't really see it due to the motherboard being horizontal - for me just a pink glow on one side when looking through the fan grill.
For the size this case is amazing. everything fitted and the space below the drive bracket made cable management actually possible. Only thing to point out is though it does support 140 mm fans, it requires (officially) not having the top drive bracket, so get a 120 mm fan.
Great PSU for the price, or at least i was when I bought it. Doesn't seem to be available anymore but if you find it great - it's Seasonic inside so good quality. Fan is almost always quiet, only getting loud after 45 minutes or more or gaming - and I'm using it as a the only dedicated exhaust. I also used the back side as a mount for my fan controller.
Eh, It's Windows. Still clunky and unreliable but it plays games. I'll stick to Ubuntu for everything else. Got the license key form the the same old laptop I got the HDD from.
Mixed TBH. When it's spinning it looks great, but it can take 2-3 minutes of twitching before it actually starts. Looks to me like not enough voltage, but I don't know if its this fan or the Mobo. I still recommend the fan because it's near silent and looks AWESOME, but again, get the 120 mm one for this case
If you are in the market for a a budget monitor just buy this one. Freesync, IPS panel, >99% sRGB, 75 Hz refresh rate all for £120. The menu system is great as well, with joystick controls on the bottom. The only thing to point out is that on this monitor Freesync works via HDMI not DisplayPort.
