Description

This is a build i put together for my friend this could've had better components but this was his budget and i had to work around it, original cost would have been around 1600$ but after we did some digging and price matching at micro center we ended up paying a total of 1190$ for the pc parts. This was build for gaming and i think it turned out alright please let me know what you guys think :) Everything will be running at stock and no intent of oc it scored a nice 105% UFO for gaming on userbenchmark :) . I didn't really run into any major problems while building this, the case is not that spacious but everything managed to fit, the only thing i would say is if you want to get this case you better be used to having little to no space to fit anything lol but it works and looks nice as well, the airflow is actually amazing. temps are running very smooth i stress tested it for 3 hours straight and nothing went above 52 on the cpu or 63 on the gpu. i know i could've made it cheaper if i got him 16gb ram but they were on sale and the ram with xmp enabled is actually running at 3326 c15c15c15c16 pretty decent for the price. The graphics card is preforming well but the cosmetic aspects of it is meh, the wrap in it is half azzed and looks poor . Everything else is working very well, and also i could've went with a air cooler but this was only 20$ more and he doesn't have a AC in his room

Part Reviews

CPU

still a very respectable processor for gaming

CPU Cooler

For the price its a steel you can't beat it

Motherboard

very easy bios and very fast load times

Memory

very fast ram and for the money and someone who doesn't care to oc well worth it

Storage

i use this for every build i make because its honestly all the same and the reliability on this is awesome

i had to take away a star for the cosmetics being poor but performs very well

Case

looks very nice, very good airflow, but a little too tight

They should stop with the logos on parts that can rotate as needed, or let you rotate the logos. But what I really noticed first was your cable ties to control the curve of those tubes — I did the same thing recently to stop mine touching the window in a narrow case. Pretty simple technique I should have tried sooner. Also there's sort of a lens haze on the first few photos, I'm guessing it's not intentional but it actually looks great on #1-2.

I couldn't have agreed more, and yes lol they tend to be too fricking hard to get out of the way. I think it was smudged and we were building it up late so I just was like eh looks ight lol but thank you man appreciate your love ❤

Why'd you decide to go with the i5 rather than an AMD Ryzen product?
