Started out as a $1k build, but then my lovely wife stepped up with $500 For my birthday and here's the result.
Gaming primarily - content creation second. Aesthetics was important, according to my taste. Therefore the white ram and gpu.
Haven't benchmarked, but so far it smokes everything from Witcher 3 to Battlefield 1.
Con: The case made my psu make a humming noise after build complete. Fixed by adjusting the screws holding the tempered glass panel to the case. Kinda McGyver/Beethoven type deal no biggie.
Some people say it's tough to install, but if you go slow, methodically and patiently, one screw at the time, it honestly works out fine. Took 1/3 of my total build time. When that was done, the rest was a breeze. Feels more solid at the end of assembly than anything.
Gorgeous looking mobo - onboard wifi and bluetooth is a huge plus in my book.
Have nothing to compare it to - BUT - my setup is so fast right now! :D
Incredible looks/aesthetics. Fantastic lights (included). Not too heavy.
My case made my psu make a low humming noise after the build was complete. After some trial/error, realised the tempered glass window - and how you adjust it's 4 screws - makes a difference.
Deduction for cabinet build issue, but I fixed it and everything else is great,
