Description

I use this PC for school, gaming, video editing and recreational use. This PC works exceptionally well and achieves high frame rates in 1080p High-Ultra settings. The PC stays rather cool with its 2 intake and 1 exhaust fan, plus a third party CPU cooler.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great processor, handles heavy games (like Battlefield 1) with ease.

CPU Cooler

Very good cooler, is worth the upgrade from the Intel Stock Cooler. Amazing RAM clearance. Looks great. Though was very annoying to install. CPU runs at around 34-38 degrees C when just on the desktop, (Windows 10 + about 10 programs running in the background). And about 50-55 degrees under load, which is about 10 degrees less than the stock cooler. (I live in Australia though, and we are in summer at the moment.)

Motherboard

This motherboard is very good for the price. It has M.2 support, it's sturdy, looks nice, low profile, great BIOS, good surge protection. Though the I/O shield is a joke and makes the motherboard very hard to install, and who puts a fan header in the middle of the motherboard?

Memory

Great RAM, fast and reliable.

Storage

Pretty good considering the price. The speed is acceptable but the HDD does struggle on some newer games like Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2.

Video Card

Amazing price:performance. Stays cool and is powerful.

  • PROS
  • Low profile.
  • Light up ASUS logo.
  • Very powerful.

  • CONS

  • No back plate.

Case

Very good for the price.

Pros: -Looks good. -Nice side panel window. -Great airflow. -Room for big GPUs.

Cons: -Cable management is nearly impossible if you don't have a fully modular PSU. -The top of the HDD bay is visible in the window. -Only fits >150mm CPU coolers.

Operating System

Great OS with a lot of potential, but very buggy and annoying.

Nice build, although I'm wondering- is there much room behind the motherboard for cable management?

Cable management is a tight squeeze in the Spec M2. I recommend getting a fully modular PSU.

Nice! Is the graphics card fan loud?

  • 35 months ago

Not sure, since there are 4 other fans in the system. But I don't think so, when gaming it gets loud, but I'm fine with that since I will have headphones on and I don't care how hard my PC works to stay cool. :)

Did you get the parts from amazon or from what the part list suggests?

I'm from Australia. I got all my parts, except the case, from a shop called MSY, at Morningside. My case had to be ordered by another PC store called PC Choice.

As for the parts list, I didn't even know about PC Part Picker at that time, lol. I got my friend to help me choose the right parts.

Can you do benchmarks on games, please? I might re-create this with a few edited parts. Ty in advance.

Hey,

I just put benchmarks for R6 Siege, Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 in the description. Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 are rough estimates.
