Description

Everything worked great with this build. I did not put in a video card because I did not need it at the time. I am doing basic work stuff, no gaming a the moment.

Part Reviews

Motherboard

Decent motherboard for the price. I just wish it had more fan headers. Also the USB headers don't seem to provide enough power to charge devices like a phone. Not sure if this is typical. One bad thing about it is there is some buzz coming from the audio out when there is no audio coming out. Maybe a bad board or just something wrong with the DAC on the board.

Case

Great case for a great price! Very modern looking with a bunch of useful features. The psu shroud is great and it has great cable management. Only issue I had was that I wasn't able to put the radiator for my AIO on the top fan spot. It was too tight with the motherboard that I had. Ended up putting it on the back.

Monitor

Great monitor for the price. Slim bezels, great picture. I am not using it for any gaming but it is great for general use. It has built-in speakers but don't use them. The build and design is nice compared to other monitors in this price segment. Easily looks like a $150-200 monitor based on the design and it's rotating/raising feature.

How come you put a micro mobo in an ATX mid tower?

Some people don’t need 2 x16 slots and it’s cheaper

I know that, I'm wondering about why they didn't get a smaller case to accompany the smaller mobo.
