I mainly use this PC for light gaming, (CS:GO, Overwatch) and I haven't seen temps above 70. I'll probably replace the stock case fans, because they are a little loud, but overall I'd say the PC is fairly quiet. The PC was very easy to build, but I did take extreme caution, (probably a bit too much) and cable management from what you can see is nice (at least by my standards, which are quite low). As for the monitor, personally I do see a difference between 240hz and 144hz, and I think it is quite noticeable, but maybe it is coincidence. The MSI Graphics card has a feature where under certain loads the fans won't spin, but you can turn that off in MSI Dragon Center. I turned it off because the graphics card is almost silent, at least under my loads. You can also turn on a cooler boost, which will turn the fans all the way up for about a minute, which will lower temps about 10 degrees. Now on to the SSD. Oh how fast it is! On my old PC, I was used to 10m boot times, plus another half an hour to wait for things to load in. Now, I get 15s boot times. Instead of leaving my PC on overnight, I can actually shut it down without having to worry about it flooding tomorrows schedule with waiting. Windows setup was also fast, and only took 10m to set up. I did have some problems with trying to launch MSI Mystic Light and MSI Dragon Center in the beginning, but repeated reinstalls did the trick. I also had some problems with the PC shutting down randomly, obviously a crash, but turning the RAM frequency from 3200mhz to 3000mhz fixed it (I think). I don't have very good pictures at the moment, so I'll take some later.
