I use the computer mainly for general college student material as well as gaming (Fortnite / League/ CSGO). My main focus for the build was to be minimalist yet powerful enough to do whatever I needed.
All in all, I'm really happy with how this build turned out. The entire build took around 2 hours, and was extremely enjoyable throughout. All prices include tax and were purchased within May 18th - May 23rd.
The cpu itself is absolutely lovely. But, the cpu cooler (Wraith Spire) was extremely hard to put on, and I had a worrying amount of squeaking when tightening down the screws. Turned out fine in the end as temps remain around 50 Celsius idle.
The gigabyte motherboard was an anxiety filled purchase as I really do not have the patience to wait for an AMD bootkit. I bought it from Amazon as soon as the item came off "out of stock" and got lucky enough to receive a F22 bios, compatible with Pinnacle Ridge.
*For anyone else looking to play the lottery with b350 boards, this particular motherboard requires a serial number higher than SN1810xxxxxxxx to have a compatible bios with Pinnacle Ridge.
The 1060 was a quick buy for a budget build, bought on price match from OfficeDepot. I currently play at 1080p 60hz and do not currently have the need for 6gb. This card has been great so far. Prices are still super high for GPU's and I did not feel like spending for anything above the 1060 3gb.
My favorite part, the FD mini c is everything I wanted in a case. Cable management basically fell into place as I was building, with the multiple grommets and spacious room under the PSU shroud. The glass window looks beautiful.
