First of all this is a somewhat old build as I made it when Pascal first launched but haven't gotten to creating a build for this site yet.
The build was rather easy though I did do a dumb and put the cpu cooler back plate on wrong and after hours of struggle I figured it out and it was all dandy. I would love to add some LED lights to the build as it needs some light in there.
I also at some point want to add another stick of the same RAM as some games are superseding the standard 8gb stick.
Note, sometimes this thing crashes and I'm not sure why. It will just be trying to load something and it will restart my pc.
Absolutely amazing cpu that runs everything that I've thrown at it and stays cool while doing it. I have it clocked at 4.0ghz and it idles at 30°C and under load it sits at 54°C. I don't want to clock it any higher with my limited airflow case and standard 212 EVO cooler.
What can I say? Keeps my cpu cool just fine with limited to no noise. Isn't the nicest looking but I'm not that concerned about that.
Kind of an odd mounting system but it works just fine. The board is nice and sturdy and all of the RAM slots are perfect which is a pretty common problem for mobo's. Bios is pretty nice but kind of slow.
Very nice, no problems with it and it looks nice. (I have the red version)
Very fast speed for the price. Obviously if you dish out some more cash and get a nice 960 Evo you are gonna get a faster one but the price to performance is very good. My startup time is a little less than 30 seconds and that is with multiple apps set to open on startup.
Funnily enough one of the most reliable HDD's failed on me and is getting read and write speeds that are about 1/10 of what they should be.
Works very well, nice and fast with a lot of storage.
Runs very cool with no audible noise. Sometimes I get an error message that says my graphics have stopped working but that only happens once a week or so. Still not even sure if that is the card though.
Everything about this case is perfect except for the thumb screws on the back which are a little flimsy but usually work just fine.
No problems, works just fine. Though I got the semi modular 650W model but I can't figure out how to change it in my completed build list lol
Beautiful display. stand is somewhat flimsy.
giving this thing 5 stars because I am so shocked that it worked. Honestly though the keyboard feels kind of like cherry mx black though not as nice obviously. Still very acceptable though. There is a slight squeak in the mouse wheel for the first few scrolls then it is fine.
Love the sound that comes from these things. Surround sound definitely helps in some games that are more tactical.
