Yeah, I could’ve used the stock cooler, but I just wanted to us an AIO. And this was just a build that I ended up passing to my brother and he upgraded it with an RX 580 and changed the AIO for a Noctua cooler.
Yes. It works with Aura Sync and you can change it as you please. Static, Wave, Rainbow, Comet, etc. it’s actually brighter in person than in the picture, but you can change that as well!
I’ll have my brother send me some and I will upload!
It’s questionable. I actually received a Titan XP Galactic Empire Edition through eBay and decided to see if the CPU would bottleneck it. Long story short, I played Fortnite with a high FPS of 576 in loading screen, and an average of 299 on the lobby; 186 in game, with it dipping to 138 in build fights.
But I did the same test with my recently upgraded R5 2600, and the FPS for that increased, on average, about 11.5% per each category, excluding the load and lobby screen.
Yes it’s very functional for the Motherboard. The ram runs very nicely!
No problem! They kept this build very cool. 3 fans in there kept the air flow very consistent, even though the case isn’t the best for cooling. But the fans did the trick! They’re better than the RGB Corsair fans in my opinion as far as cooking goes
Yeah man. I’m just happy he’s getting a start with it :)
And from Newegg! They’re cheap, but extremely good quality. It keeps his components quite cool.
Here’s the link for them:

Haha I know. It’s a great card to start with too. I hope he ends up upgrading whenever prices drop here soon. But whatever he wants, I’m gonna help him with. He’s very new to all of this.
Thank you so much. He ended up loving it! So I feel like this was a much needed project of mine.
Well I tested a couple of games on it. Fortnite, Overwatch, PUBG, R6S, Rise of the Tomb Raider, CS:GO, Warframe, Smite, LoL, and for the giggles, Witcher 3. Plays them all decently, and I averaged 60fps, but with reduced settings. But I have a nice monitor so I couldn’t complain much, especially coming from a terrible older monitor lol.
I mostly play Overwatch and Fortnite on this though. And considering those are optimized games, they play well on this.
I did not. I was going to but I got very good performance out of it. Currently I’ve equipped it with an RX 580 ROG Strix. Everything is way better now haha
I was wondering about that. It looks like it’s a super tight fit! I was wondering about that’s as well. Would you suggest putting the cables in front of the radiator like that instead of on the inside facing the components?
I was literally just wondering how this cooler looked in this exact case. Will definitely be purchasing it now! +1 for solving my problems and for having a cllleeeaaannnn build
Thanks! I tried to work with the price, and eventually ended with this.
But, I am in the works of upgrading this system to a $1000 build. So be on the lookout for that!
Oh gosh. Um. There’s 2 RGB Aura headers (Which you can put RGB fans on). Then besides that, you can attach 4 fans. But I also have a fan hub so I can attach a lot more fans than that.
That’s really strange. And it’s not on the QVL? That may be the biggest problem there. But I figured G. Skills would work just fine. The 3200mhz is an option for the board though, but only to that point of OC. So you may have to go with something slower like 2666/2400
Well what kind of MOBO do you have? That could be a big factor-in
What motherboard do you have??
That’s really strange.
I feel the same way haha
Hey, thanks mate! Check out the first review by me too ;)
Yeah, this thing is nice. It;s such a good deal too for price and performance.
I find it exceptional. I'm running on it now, and I'm currently downloading many files and running benchmarks. As of this far though, it's idling around 37 C, 45 C for light gaming, and 52 C whenever I'm playing something too intense for the 2200G to handle. The color on it is gorgeous, and it has plenty of SATA ports. I like this mobo a lot,
Thank you so much! And while you mention that, this mobo looks absolutely astounding in person. 5/5, no question!
Yeah, I think I’ll eventually add one of the new RX Cards when they come out. Maybe the 1050 3GB or something else snazzy and new. Who knows!
I love it!
Lol I am running dual. I gotta upload new pictures today ;p
Thanks man :)
I didn't even notice that lol. I guess I added the wrong info. Thanks for that!
It is now changed, thanks to you Solewaif.
And thanks! His name is Eustece
