Description

My first PC build. Very happy with all the parts and very happy with how everything is running.

I was a little worried about going with such a cheap motherboard, but I haven't had any problems with it, it's all working wonderfully.

Still working on getting the mail-in rebates back, but you know how that goes.

Part Reviews

Motherboard

I was worried about buying such a cheap motherboard, but so far it's working perfectly with my i3-6100 + GTX 960. It is very bare-bones, as you would expect, but it's all I need.

It took a few minutes to fit the RAM in juuuuuuuust right, but other than that I have no complaints.

Memory

It's ram and it's cheap. No need for frills here.

Storage

I decided not to include an SSD in my build (for now) and I'm pleasantly surprised with how fast this HDD is. So far so good.

Case

I love the look of this case. There is room for cable management, plenty of space inside, and the blue LED fans are a nice touch.

Power Supply

Semi-Modular. 80+ Bronze. Got it at a good price.

Agree with Jem3 about the SSD can't imagine a PC without one now. Good choices, only possible mod is a light strip the blue looked good in the dark but only coming from the fan isn't enough :(

Good build, but you should get an ssd soon. It'll make your PC a lot more snappy.

Thanks! I'm actually surprised with how fast the HDD is, but once it starts to fill up and get more sluggish I'll look into an SSD.

A Noctua fan would fit perfectly this build. <3

Heeeey... That's pretty good! How's the motherboard? I'm thinking of using it for a build I'm making very soon.

The mobo is priced at $30 if the MIR comes through. AsRock is notorious for being bad at it though. OP did you get your MIR yet?
