So, I'm new to this stuff but I'm proud of what came out of it. I saved SO MUCH MONEY by just putting the computer together myself. It's like companies charge hundreds of dollars for them to have it built. Also, since I'm a beginner, no need to call me a noob for doing dumb stuff xD, I got that down already.
Pros - Runs VERY smoothly and fast - Very quiet when doing things like downloading and casual surfing - 8 Cores! -16GB of RAM! -2TB HDD! -8 GB of VRAM! -Case is functional and does the job while looking quite sharp -A LOT of cable management room
Cons - Very low wattage for PSU (will be changing that later, definitely) -A TINY bit noisy when downloading large files (IDK) - CPU Cooler was a PAIN to install, literally. (The Heat Sink left scratches on my arm)
So I'd appreciate any comments, questions, or concerns about my machine. If you have a question about how well a certain part works, don't be afraid to ask :)! I'd also appreciate suggestions for PSUs that are AFFORDABLE, and high wattage (nothing fancy =D)
EDIT: So I forgot to add that I used the Hard Drive from my Old Dell XPS 8100 that had all my files and Windows 10 Pro. I know, this was a HUGE upgrade.
A WORTH-IT CPU. 8 cores, and up to 4 GHz! What more can you ask for? Runs very quickly btw...
Cools efficiently and leaves my computer cool to the touch, great!
This works, my CPU temp is always cool most likely because of this. And, it has enough paste for I'd say about 15-20 applications.
The BIOS is functional and doesn't look ancient like some MOBOs. There's really nothing special to this specific product but it gets the job done, 100%
Perfect if you're on a tight budget, they look great and function as expected.
Mine's was Amazon refurbished but works perfectly. Has 1.91TB out of the box. Nice!
I knew that I 100% wanted to get a powerful GPU and I found the perfect one. A Radeon RX 480 chipset with 8 GIGS (yes, 8!) of VRAM. The thing also has an LED control that you can set to make if static, color changing, or blinking. The perfect card!
The case's fan keeps my computer cool and looks sharp too! It does have only 1 disc drive but I think I can manage.
What I needed. I was on a tight budget after such an expensive GPU so I decided to get this. Nothing special to it but it works.
Works perfectly. The drive comes in and out fast and all my Drivers' installed quickly. All I needed!
