Description

Mom's boyfriend told me he wanted me to build him a computer, original budget was around $1,000. Then this happened. The only real problem I had was when I went to install the drivers it wouldnt let me install the chipset driver to the m.2 at first, but used the Designare disc that came with the motherboard and everything was all set.

Part Reviews

CPU

Its a beast what more can be said, killer price as well.

CPU Cooler

Beautiful cooler, will keep the 1920x cool.

Motherboard

Looks aren't my personal favorite but i didn't choose the parts. The tr4 socket is huge. The features this motherboard has is crazy. Very little lighting if you don't like RGB

Memory

Good looking ram, I have the Non RGB in my personal rig, these look amazing and the colors are super vibrant.

Storage

Didn't realize at first how small m.2 drives were, this thing is really fast as well.

Storage

Basic storage drive, Lasts long and isnt loud

Video Card

Nice looking card, i like the carbon fiber look gives a nice look. If only the case this was in had a window.

Case

This case is MASSIVE and the only thing i didn't like very much in the build. For the price you'd think the doors would work. Nope, the backside door never wants to shut. It was like that before i even built the computer. Cable management wasn't the easiest either, by no means am I a cable management god but i like it clean.

Power Supply

Small but powerful power supply, 80+ gold, Gets the job done

Mom's boyfriend didn't want a window at first, once he saw how it looked inside he kinda wants the window lol

Blow someone else's budget -- that's one way to get it done!

I presume he's happy with the outcome or you would have lengthened the story...

This Build should have been like 2600$ but prices are so nuts this is the new Normal... I love this build tho, the cosmos II is fire

Yeah the prices are crazy high, the case is really the only thing I didn't like too much about this build.

Yeah, so glad I built mine back in January 2017 when GPU prices were sane, the case is good but flashy and bulky on the inside, but the bent glass is amazing

Can someone please justify $$$350 for a CASE!!!????

I couldn't justify it for this one, I wouldn't spend over 150 on this case, build quality definitely isnt there for the price (imo) the case in this build isn't the one with the tempered glass

Hi . I wanna buy this motherboard for my threadripper 1950x . I wanna know if I can put 4x16gb (2133 MHz) dims of ram in it and leave the 4 other slot empty?

Yeah you can do that, there's a page in the manual that shows you which DIMM slots to put them in.

I would recommend getting something a little bit faster than 2133 for threadripper. The memory thats paired in this build is 3200 MHz, threadripper likes faster memory
