Description

This is my first PC. I OC'd the RX 480 to 1.375 GHz stable XMP enabled and water cooled my locked CPU for no fricking reason other than bragging rights. Everything runs beautifully at 1080p and as I don't have a 1440p or 4K monitor ATM I can't say anything about those resolutions but I still love this PC! I decided to do the closed side panal in case my cable managment sucked, and I'm actually pretty happy with it ATM, so I will probably will get a window to show off this awesome PC! I spent less than 800$ on the PC thanks to r/buildapcsales. Overall I spent less than 1000 USD and I'm pretty happy with this. Thanks to r/buildapc and PCPP for all the advice and usefull information used in making this build.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Old, but it idles as 22 and under load it never goes above 34 on my locked i5 so worth it on a water cooling budget.

Motherboard

Great motherboard, the wifi is fast the LEDs are pretty and the layout is pretty good.

Video Card

This thing is awesome. If you play at 1080p everything runs at max great.

Case

Awesome little case, a bit big for an ITX case though but I don't mind at all. Very good looking and great cable management.

Power Supply

Great PSU. You never know how useful modular PSUs are until you have one.

Keyboard

Great keyboard, love the switches and how it doesn't look uber gamer-y.

I'm so hyped to build a PC, and I happen to be going for the same CPU and GPU! Could I have some benchmarks? Thanks in advance!

It's great, but, only get the reference Versoin if you are doing mini ITX otherwise use a custom card for a better cooler just not the gigabyte one as that has a terrible cooler.
