This is my very build. At first, I didn't want to go Full RGB but at the time of the build Floe Riing was released so that's when I decided. Why the hell not?
This build is used for gaming and content creation. I will not overclock so I chose the lesser i7-7700 though it hasn't slowed me down for gaming or for any content creation I've done. I do photography.
PS. Other things not mention here is the monitor I use. I still plan to get one and the plan is to get PG279Q in the near future. Stay tuned!
I would not actually call it less than its big bro. I would just say different. But does the work for me.
Beautiful AIO. Software needs a little work TBH.
Does the job and has RGB. A good durable MOBO for non OC'd PC.
These are heavy. They're elegant and expensive. They were on sale when I got them. Don't judge.
The one that makes this PC blazing fast. Yep, NVME M.2. Installed my OS here and some programs. I have no regrets even if it wasn't the PRO version.
Does the job. Good expansive storage. Maybe I will Raid 0 one day.
The one that makes all the graphics run smoothly. I will only limit my gameplay to 1440p. 4k Maybe in the near future. But this beast can run both so. Get it. Mine is overclocked to 2 ghz / 11,716 mhz memory. I have not experienced any bottleneck. Witcher 3 Ultra runs 90-100 fps.
It would not look good without this case. Very very heavy. Did I mention I carried this through 3 flights of stairs when I first got it? I felt like I lifted a truck. Not very portable. But I wasn't aiming portability in the first place.
Without this I will not run. It's enough power when I need to. Very nice modular PSU.
What can I say here? OK.
Wireless Network Adapter
My MOBO didn't come with a built in wifi. So, this little piece gets me connected to my net at 157mbps+ without dropping out. Does the job I think. I am too far from my modem that's all.
I waited and waited until this monitor went on sale. When I first used it, I had trouble connecting the DP cable behind the monitor. I wasn't getting any signal at all. Little did I know that it wasn't pushed in properly. Once it worked, what a change of view! coming from a 120hz/60 fps TV. This is glorious gaming.
I was a bit worried about the backlight bleed/IPS glow issue since most reviewers tell horror stories about this monitor. Mine came in with little to none of the above. Maybe because I was lucky enough to get a fresh new stock from Memory Express? Or maybe they have upgraded their QA with this monitor.
Regardless, I enjoy it. OC'd to 165. Every game I play is more than 150 fps except Witcher 3 with hairworks around 90-100 and 124+ without. I am happy. I recommend this to anyone. Do not be scared to buy this beast of a monitor.
I needed a compact keyboard. Cherry red switches were excellent for gaming or for anything I do actually.
Lightweight mouse. Good response time and good aesthetics. If it feels good with your hands, you found your mouse.
Very, very clear audio. It was the cheapest headset back then but this a top quality material. Clear mic. No complaints at all.
