Hello PCPP! This is the first PC I've ever built and I'm very happy it all came together with minimal issues. I first looked into building a custom PC two years ago and finally decided to blow a hole in my student wallet to make it happen.
I went with a Ryzen PC because of the better multitasking and possibility of streaming in the future. Paired it with a 1060 graphics card because my existing monitor is 1080p, 60Hz and I wasn't planning on upgrading it in the near future. I'm unfamiliar with the specific benchmarks, but I know it can run my casual games smoothly at high settings - a huge improvement from my laptop gaming days.
Overall, its silent, pretty, and I love it! Thanks for reading :)
Recommended by a friendly user on r/buildapc and overall I'm very pleased with it. Overclocked to 3.9GHz at 1.3V.
Very small and aesthetically pleasing cooler - I had no issues with RAM clearance. The box came with an AM4 bracket. Installation was a little difficult but it works great.
Very fast SSD that is capable of booting Windows in a few seconds. Just be careful when taking it out of the box.
Basic HDD for a very good price.
Went with a 1060 graphics card for my 1080p 60Hz monitor. So far it works great and can handle the games and software I use. Bought it during an Amazon prime sale. However, there's only one HDMI port.. not sure if this is the norm, but it'll need extra cables to connect a second monitor.
Love this case, it's super easy to build with, and has lots of options for cable management. The instructions were very easy to understand and it came with all the accessories you could possibly need.
Bought two 140mm Fractal Design fans to replace the one 120mm fan at the front.
Works great, no complaints. It's semi-modular but I didn't find it confusing to install at all.
And it has black cables.
Great RGB RAM. Personally think it was well worth it to pay a little extra for the bright lighting.
