Thanks for reading guys, If any suggestions or question please ask them and I will get back to you :). PC used for High >60 fps gaming 1080p, and School work.
Pros - Good for gaming/my needs
Cons - Coffee lake is coming with 6 core 6 threads, but I don't care much as I needed a PC, and the 9th gen Processor will be a 10nm form. Bit expensive compared to Ryzen 5.
Pros - Small Form factor, black plastic front piece, black fan, quite, and cools my Cpu very well.
Cons - none so far
Pros - Many features, Great looking black/grey board, red ambient lighting isnt too bright.
Cons- none so far
Pros - Cheap for what I payed, good looking, does the job.
Cons - Timings could be better, top down view isn't as nice compared to Corsair Vengence LPX.
Pros - Super fast.
Cons - Will have to buy more down the road haha.
Pros - Packaging is amazing, looks is amazing, quite, doesn't get to hot. Perfect for poor airflow case such as mine.
Cons - Price is a bit steep for Canadians, Had to pay $53 shipping/fees to Nvidia on top of 525$ price tag and don't forget the 13% tax also. WOW.
Pros - Best micro atx case in my opinion for price. Air flow is pretty decent as I have a fan blower GPU. I only have 3 fans in it and it handles temps just fine! 2 intake 1 exhaust.
Cons - CABLE MANAGEMENT WOW, it was a disaster but I did my best to make the inside of the case have minimal wires showing. Had no choice to clump the rest in the back. The thermaltake fans/hub contributes the most to this problem.
Pros - Cheap for what I paid, many wires, semi psu.
Cons - Small buzzing sound. To lazy to send it for repair, rather have a working computer than none. Heard similar complains. The GPU wire was a pain to fit, came with two 8 pin adapters, which made it hard to hide the other 8pin from showing in the case. 24 pin cable was a pain to bend and hide behind the inwin case sheild
I have the Plus version of this fan!
Pros - Effects, colours, sound, preformance.
Cons - sometimes software gets glitchy but not to bad, a 140$ CAD price tag was kinda steep.
