My first build was difficult due to such a tiny case, I feel I messed up the thermal paste and getting the cables to fit was a challenge. I began to benchmark and I'm pretty happy with the results. 75 degrees on my GPU when gaming on 99% load. CPU is in the 50-60 degrees while gaming. Beautiful 1440p and 144Hz in most games make this a true PC experience.
CPU gets hot while completing tasks and fan spins up. Not too sure if its my CPU cooler temp curve, how I installed the thermal compound or the fact that its a SFF case and breathing is hard for the cooler.
Has everything I need. in my case the configuration was a bit weird for the front IO and the CPU cooler but other than that I love this Motherboard
Great cheap RAM.
Cheap SSD and gets the job done.
Great PC Case, wish it had space for Radiator and for more cable management. I would strongly advise a blower style GPU. Best SFF other than those 2 things.
Small, fast cheap. Nothing to not love.
Best and most cheap 144Hz 1440p Monitor I could find. I love it. Can move vertically or rotate if you want. Also can overclock to 165Hz
