I'm planning on (once I get a proper monitor w/ HDMI/DP) using this for light gaming. In the meantime, using the onboard Intel HD 630 on VGA, I'll be doing homework, >ultra< light gaming and having the 1050 run PrimeGrid.
At first, it kept shutting off for some reason. I changed nothing, had it on for about 4 hours now just idling, and the issue suddenly went away. I've run games, maxed the GPU using PrimeGrid, and the CPU aswell during that time... no shutdowns. Just a fluke I suppose. Drivers issues maybe? (No BSODs, but ok). I'll try Doom 2016 on it in a bit and see if it's still stable.
I enjoyed putting this together and getting everything installed. I've been wanting to build a PC for about a year now and decided now was the time.
*Yes, yes; cable management. I'm a bit paranoid on stressing the length of cables. I did make sure nothing was going to fall onto the fans though.
