Everyone on this site claims they built a $3,000 machine for their first build... I call BS. I'm not going to lie to you, this is not my first build. But, it's the first build I did entirely on my own. For my first PC, I followed the Jackfrags tutorial on YouTube and just bought everything he said to buy. THIS TIME, i did my due diligence and carefully picked my own parts over a few weeks until I finally pulled the trigger. The only thing that remains from my first PC is one GTX 1070 and my hard drive. The matching monitors will be here soon enough, but for now I have two different sizes.
I've had this puppy for a few weeks now and I can honestly say this thing blows my mind. While yes, there are faster and better PC's out there, this is the fastest I have ever personally used. It's nuts!!! and it looks good!! Anyway, on to the parts...
Great CPU, does everything i ask it to and more. I have it OC'd to 4.4 Ghz and I'm sure it could handle more but there's just no reason for me to push it.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is because the new AMD Ryzen chips outperform and are cheaper.... which I should have researched BEFORE I bought this one. Oh well, this thing is still a beast!!
Love this cooler! I have the LED set to change color when my CPU runs a little hot so I know if I'm pushing her too hard. The only negative is that the standard mode runs loud. All you need to do to fix that is download the Corsair Link software and set the fans to quiet. I can barely hear it now!
Just awesome for the price. The BIOS is very easy to use and overclocking is literally as easy as going to the OC tuner and setting the OC to whatever you want. It also has a ton of RAM slots if you're into that sort of thing...
yeah I mean it's RAM so... all i do is game...
time will tell if these are quality. So far, they've worked like a dream!
Great card for a couple hundred dollars less than the 1080's. I can't say enough good things about these cards. I run them in SLI with an EVGA HB bridge and they play any game in 4k at 60fps with a few rare exceptions. I doubled up on these because I already had one from my old compy and one isn't quite enough to play every game at 4k. If i had to start from scratch I would probably get dual 1080's, but hey these lil fellers ain't nothing to scoff at.
This case is a DREAM!!! Seriously buy it! It has everything I look for in a case and is very customizable. Easy to remove dust filters, reasonably quiet fans, and most importantly, S P A C E!!!
