This is a computer that I built for my girlfriend's first Windows gaming PC. She used to play League of Legends on her iMac but we finally got her to convert.
This is a somewhat budget-friendly build. Some parts do not have prices cause I already had them on hand, bought for the lowest price on PPP.
Most of the parts are middle of the road. Not designed for overclocking just playing almost any game on medium to high graphics. So far it has ran great on H1Z1, league (max) and Overwatch.
This was my first modular PC build too and I heard some decent things about the PSU. However my wiring skills could use some work and the cables were a little bit short... The LED cables and one of the cables routed to the mobo BARELY fit, and I mean I had to work the plastic in the cable to get it to bend and fit. Overall decent.
I love this motherboard, the BIOS is clean and friendly and it has the right ports in the right spots. Not too flimsy either like some others. One gripe is that the screws to the case on one of the corners didn't match. Might have been the cases fault!
If you have any questions about the build let me know! I might write more about this build later or in the comments. Thanks for looking!
Swapped in an MSI GTX 1060 and some new ThermalTake RGB Fans
Computer runs amazingly well still!
Not unlocked but that's not why I bought it. Works great under load with proper cooling.
A great, quiet cooler. HUGE pain to install, the screws do not like to match up and the instructions might as well be in an ancient transcript. If you have a little patience I would 100% recommend this because it is so cheap and functions EXCEPTIONALLY.
Beautiful BIOS, good ports and not very flimsy!
Good ram speed at a great price. Not too tall either.
cheap, works, not as fast as others but really good. PC boots in under 10s...
Awesome case with two built-in fans. Works well with custom wiring and modular PSU's. Great slots for HDD and SSD's also.
Cords tough and maybe a bit short. Overall great for the price.
Ultra thin bezel, good colors. What more do you want for 100 bucks...
Clean and smooth feeling optical mouse. Slightly larger sized.
Good wireless headset. Could use some Bluetooth updates as my old mobo failed to like its USB Bluetooth dongle... Bass can get really loud, good range.
Not too loud!
6 stars. Great mount for an SSD to be dropped into a standard HDD slot. Simple screws lock it in place, has holes on top or sides for mounting.
