Description

This Build was made primarily for my work on AutoCad 2020. It might have the aesthetics of a gaming rig, but is primarily a workstation. Everythimg came together beautifully, works great, even does pretty well on all the games i play (95 - 144 fps on Ultra @ 1080p). Love everything about it!

Part Reviews

CPU

Very happy with this CPU. 8 cores, brilliant performance, didn't break the bank - what's not to like? While i didn't use the included air cooler, i think it's brilliant that AMD include one - and a decent one at that, too. Not really as fun to overclock as the Intel stuff, but then again, that's probably not why you're buying a 2700X, anyway.

CPU Cooler

Good performance for a very reasonable price. I think the hottest my 2700X ever got with this thing is 65 Celsius. Very pleased with this Cooler.

Storage

Amazing Value for money! This drive is amazing, considering it costs as little as it does.

Video Card

I purchased this card on discount from newegg.com. Considering how little i paid for it, i am very happy with the performance it offers. Runs a little on the warm side, but that is usually the case with Blower-style cards.

Case

I loved the look of this case from the moment i first saw it. The fact that it happens to be great to build in was really just a plus for me, ultimately. Really spacious, easy to work with - as anyone who's worked with a MasterBox case can probably confirm- and looks brilliant ( but that's subjective, really). Price was also very good, especially considering the included RGB fans. Love it.

Monitor

Like this monitor a lot, works great with my Vega56. I wish it would have come with an Audio Out / Headphone port, though. Also great value for the money.

Keyboard

The build quality on this Keyboard is absolutely astonishing. Very solid, feels incredibly well-built. Still getting used to the Red switches, having used a membrane keyboard as my daily for a very long time. Illumination is also very pretty, integrates flawlessly into MysticLight. Love it.

Mouse

This mouse is great if you have big hands and prefer a heavier feel. Weight and DPI are adjustable, as is the lighting, which is controlled through a separate app, rather than MysticLight. The fact that it needs its own software suite for the lighting and cannot be synced with the rst of your RGB components via MysticLight is infuriating. Otherwise it's quite excellent.
