This machine is used almost entirely for gaming. It runs PUBG on ultra at around 100 FPS average. I have not tried any other games yet due to this being the only game I am playing right now. Everything runs smooth and the build had no problems what so ever. The only annoying part was getting the bracket for the CPU cooler on. I also added a couple more fans after I finished the main build just to help out air flow. I would suggest going with a modular power supply to make cable management a little easier, but this case does have a nice PSU shield that hides most of the unused cables.
If anyone has any tips for the future please give me a shout. It has been about a decade since I built a PC so I'm sure I made a few mistakes.
Great CPU and runs very cool. I went with this over the 7700K due to not wanting to spend the extra cash for liquid cooling. If you have the money to spend though the 7700K will give you a little more performance if you can keep it cool
Great air cooler at a great price. Only thing I struggled with was the mounting bracket but I haven't built a computer in almost ten years so maybe I am just a little rusty.
Works as advertised and is very inexpensive. I highly recommend it over the stock paste that comes with the CPU.
Great board with lots of features. Comes with plenty of fan headers for air cooling heavy builds like this one. All the apps work great and are very user friendly.
A little expensive but that is to be expected with the current cryptocraze going on. It runs without issue at advertised speeds and looks very nice. They doing feel as flimsy as some of the cheaper ran sticks I have used in the past.
Insanely fast. My computer is booted up and ready to go before my monitor even turns on.
I game at 1080p so this card seemed like the perfect choice. It overclocks extremely well and with the ample airflow in the case it stays nice and cool even over long gaming sessions.
Huge case with tons of options inside. Probably a little large for what I have in it, but I have lots of room to upgrade in the future. My only complaint was there where a few blemishes on the case when I got it but it wasn't anything a black sharpie couldn't fix.
Works great for this build and is nice and cheap. I would recommend going with a fully modular PSU though.
It is cheap and it works. It is a little loud, but I rarely use it so it is not a problem.
I jumped from Windows 7 to 10 and I must say it wasn't as bad as everyone made it out to be. Install went smoothly.
