Description

I Built this computer for high-performance gaming to play with my brothers across the states and some friends across the world. it works perfectly and I love that you don't have to have the lights on 24/7 you can turn them off with a simple program downloaded from ASUS Aura sync, Nzxt's CAM software, and Corsairs RGB control program (I don't remember what it's called).

Part Reviews

CPU

Perfect for what I needed Haven't run into any issues with it. Fast and Reliable thank you Intel.

CPU Cooler

Great cooler keeps my CPU (i7 7700k stock clock speed) under 35-40 C under load and 28 C idle! The only reason I dislike the CAM Software it's a little buggy to start and on one of the ring spots if you change it, it'll change the center as well but its water under the bridge because of its performance

Motherboard

Great board. Great lighting. It has all the SATA ports I need and comes with room for 2 M.2 drive slots (the stickers it came with is a Plus they look really good.) Has 4 USB 3.0's all in all 10/10

Memory

Great memory lighting can be controlled with ASUS Aura sync and they never get hot. Great Job G.Skill!

Video Card

Runs every game I've played so far on ultra 60+FPS I can't say anything about 4K as I only have a 1080P Monitor. Lighting looks really good as well.

Case

Great case! The only reason why I dropped a star is because you need to take the front of the case off if you're running a 240 mm radiator because you don't get much airflow they added it some red and white finishing pieces for the top and bottom of the front of the case cable management is ok you would have more luck with round cables not flat like mine

Power Supply

nothing wrong with this beauty it keeps itself cool. the smart technology in it is great so it's not running all the time making it noisy I have it flipped upside down for ventilation and under glow lel anyways 10/10. Edit dropped a star because every time the fan turns on it isn't very quiet still a great power supply

Keyboard

I use this Keyboard all the time it works perfectly the only thing I have against it is it is somewhat hard to program the keys but that's probably only me anyways 9/10

Mouse

Great mouse and lightweight haven't had any problems with it so far.

Headphones

Great bass speakers. Great for games that you need to hear with because of the surround sound that comes with it 11/10

Custom

only dropped a star because i have something against hard mousepads but other than that its great

Custom

A very beautiful work although it looks cheap in picture it is very nice and sturdy and comes with 2 USB 3.0 and is connected with a micro-b to USB 3.0 the RGB is nice as well. 10/10

Where is everyone finding graphics cards right now... I'm trying to build a pc and I'm almost finished gathering all the parts but i can't find any 1080s or 1070s for a reasonable price due to cryptocurrency and the shortage of graphics cards currently

How have you installed the liquid cooler? Because i've got the same case and i can't, there are´nt space. Have I to remove the coolers of the cpu cooler?

What I did was I took the bottom fan out (which I cut the plastic screws that they used) then took the radiator in towards the bottom a little bit of inconvenience but worth it I think. The reason why I put it on the bottom was that the power and USB at the top was keeping me from putting the radiator there by 1/2 inch hope this helps.

Hi, love this build I just have a quick question? Will the Kraken cooler be compatible with other cases. Sorry if I sound like I'm clueless, planning to build my first PC.

No this is a good question. Make sure the case says it can support 240 mm radiators. Hope i helped. Best of luck!
