This is my first overall build, originally bought a PC off a friend and upgraded everything in it with the exception of the CPU, Mobo & RAM, but that is definitely next on the list (need help deciding between i7-9700k & Ryzen 7 2700x). I know I could definitely use some work with cable management but overall it was a great overall experience!
Any feedback or suggestions please feel free to let me know!
This CPU came with the build I originally got. Does a fantastic job with gaming, especially with the original GTX 970 that I had. This is definitely the next thing I need to upgrade and debating whether or not to get the i7-9700k or Ryzen 7 2700x.
This does a great job keeping my CPU cooled in any circumstance plus the RGB is a nice touch with the lighting node pro and HD120 fans that I have with it.
Gaming on my previous build was fine with 16GB and I still think it will be enough, but I do believe that I could use more RAM when I upgrade the cpu & mobo.
Coming from a GTX 970 to this was a game changer for me. FPS are obviously a lot higher and the fan the GPU has itself keeps the temp lower than the 970. Debated getting the 2080 but I bought this off someone for $250 so I can't complain.
Debated getting the LL120 over the HD120 but I am happy with the HDs. Colors are very vibrant and look great inside the case.
