This is my first build. I needed a new machine to replace my eight year old Dell and thought this would be a fun project. I built it for gaming, audio recording, coding, and general nerdy things. I was a little nervous but I think things turned out well. After installing my GPU I did have problems with the RGB lighting but sorted that out after a little tinkering.
Reliable and overclocks well as far as I can tell.
Runs silent. May upgrade to something more hefty but seems to be getting the job done. Or just add a second fan which seems super simple.
Booted on the first try! Built in overclocking software is super user friendly. RGB lighting looks good as does the board itself. WiFi and Bluetooth built in can't beat it!
Boots super fast! Not sure if it is much faster than a normal ssd.
I was skeptical about purchasing AMD after all the reviews and history I've read. So far I haven't had any problems and am very satisfied especially for the price.
This might seem silly but this might be the most impressive piece of the rig. The case comes with five built in fans (3 w/led) and the dust covers pop out simply and cable management isn't a problem. The plastic window does scratch easily though.
Does the job. Quit.
