This is my first gaming PC build. Been using a gaming laptop with GTX 680M and it's ageing quite gracefully.
Hardware update 1: Replaced 2 NZXT case fan with Cryorig XF140 Fans because the NZXT case fan sucks. This change alone brought down my GPU temps by 5 degrees with is an worthy investment IMO.
CPU works. Wanted to wait for Ryzen but I couldn't wait any longer. So yeah..
You can definitely hear the pump noise when inside a room when you close all windows and doors. Other than that it works decently well with a moderate OC.
The Bios for this motherboard is good. It comes with auto overclock but only to 4.5 Ghz on i5 7600k. Guess I still will have to learn manual OC to get it to 5GHz. My only issue with this motherboard is my speaker seems to have some white noise in the background. Noticeable when no music is playing. But I am not sure if which is the problem.
Mine came with coil wine. Other than that it works great! Moderate OC results in temps of near 68 degrees.
The case looks awesome but the case fan suck. I would recommend replacing them. I replaced 2 case fans with Cryorig Fans and it brought my GPU temp down by 5 degrees easily.
It's a PSU that works what else can you say? Got it because it's cheap and in tier 1.
I have this keyboard for 2 years now and it works amazing. I cannot say how much I liked the volume wheel. Good steel construction looks like it can last me a very long time. A good investment I would say.
