Description

Here is my first ever build and to my surprise it works! I use it for light photo editing (Photoshop and light room) but mostly game on it. It achieves decent thermals in pretty much all games i own ,things like ETS2 and rust, and will do it at a solid 60fps medium-high setting. It was thrown together in a few hours and I tried my best with cable management. Not a fan of RGB so i went for neutral colours and white lights. My 3D mark score on time spy was 6612. All pictures were taken during a tear down and clean so i apologise for the dust. My Office 2019 key was free because i'm in high school. edit added another identical stick of ram bringing it up to 16GB. edit 2 just added a second monitor.

Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing CPU, especially great considering i got it dirt cheap in a sale. Currently clocked at 3.8GHz with the stock cooler.

Motherboard

Great and versatile Mobo, looks great and built like a girder.

Memory

looks sleek and is functional.

Storage

great piece of kit but i would recommend people get a larger capacity model as i have nearly filled it with just a couple hours of video and a few games.

Storage

not had any problems so far and has plenty of room for all my photos and word documents.

Video Card

handles everything i have thrown its way so far and will play every game i own ,usually at a solid 60fps medium-high settings. not a fan of RGB but its pretty minimal on this card anyway.

Case

great looking case and is a dream to build in, compared to my previous cases at least, and is build like a tank.

Power Supply

Nice mesh covered cables and semi-modular design.

Case Fan

they rattle a little bit but apart from some noise they are pretty decent fans.

Monitor

Crisp and bright with a nice thin bezel, but gets really hot for some reason.

Monitor

brilliant sharp, bright monitor.

Keyboard

keyboard is a bit mushy and the media keys at the top are constantly getting stuck but I've managed to type this so it must be doing something right.

Headphones

great headset with a less than stellar mic ,but its got a braided cable.

Speakers

brilliant pair of speakers would definitely recommend.

Nice. Don't bother with an AIO, if you want a better cooler put a Cryorig M9a or arctic freezer 33 on it.

PLease get a mechanical keyboard, once you make the switch, you'll never look at membrane ones again
