Hello all! My name is Harm, also know as L5hunter on the internet. I built this machine as a test of my abilities and a kill-all gaming rig, while still trying to have something of a budget (fun fact: originally the budget was $800). I am very happy with this build.
Very happy with this processor. It easily overclocks to 4.8 on my system, but for stability and temperature I keep it at 4.6 GHz.
This cooler is amazing. It looks great, it's incredibly quiet, but the mounting and install is weirdly complicated. The fan is mounted with a sort of hinge-like thing, and that seems unnecessary.
Had all of the functions I needed. M.2 slot, many PCI-E slots (but only 1 1x slot?), support for 3-way SLI, and overclocks quite well. The only reason it has 4 stars is because it only has 1 PCI-E 1x slot.
It's RAM. It functions as expected.
A rippin fast drive for your storage needs! I boot in about 8 seconds on this mother.
Man oh man do I like this card. It stays consistently cool, and is unbelievably quiet. With a more aggressive fan curve I could probably overclock this more, but I like the complete silence.
A very customizable and huge case. You could easily fit in anything inside of this case, from watercooling radiators to graphics cards. The thumb screws are a great addition. However, the side window scratches VERY easily, so I would recommend getting an acrylic one.
A good, reliable PSU.
Wireless Network Adapter
Great range on this thing. Cheap too!
What a nice, comfy mouse! More macros than you could ever need.
