Description

First Time building a PC and i have to say that this case made it a breeze with installing parts with so much room in it :D Definitely recommend to anyone that has the budget for this case. Overall i was really satisfied with the build overall and i was really happy with my cable management considering i am a first time builder.

It was overall straight forward to install other than the time where i had to plug all the power switch cables and that took me time cause of my fingers :/ Other than that it was pretty much no problems

Currently the games i play are

  • League of Legends, CS:GO, Smite, GTA 5 and Rocket League

Planned Games

  • AC Syndicate and future titles that interest such as overwatch

Also i have a weird thing where i enter the bios and it freezes but i can boot into windows just fine. This happened after i updated the bios to the last firmware, should i downgrade it?

Part Reviews

CPU

This CPU is great for Daily Usage and Gaming, has not failed me yet and does every task i have pushed on it so far. Great CPU with very little heat output.

CPU Cooler

Keeping this 6600K cool is this monster.

47 Pounds for this and worth it definitely

4.2Ghz OC at 1.25V but max temps are 62C so far

Motherboard

A great Motherboard none the less, All the features at reasonable price.

Memory

Ram is Ram but this is fast ram. Got em at black friday sales so why the heck not?

Storage

A reliable SSD that feels consistent. Definitely recommend this to anyone wanting 850 PRO quality but better and lower pricing

Video Card

A card that hasnt let me down. A legend that needs to be said.

Never further OC it but max temps so far on ultra GTA 5 and R6 are both 60C

Case

A Case that suits all ur needs.

  • looks nice

  • Noob-Friendly

  • Great Manuals

  • Awesome fans that came with it = 3 140mm fans

Downfall is the pricing of this but definitely worth all of it as Its aluminium 3mm thick panels

Power Supply

As usual a great power supply with all the needed Cables at reasonable pricing and 80 Plus Gold efficiency

Operating System

So far windows 10, I like it

Case Fan

Replaced the NF F12 fan that came with the NHU12S for looks and matching of colour scheme and so far has been producing the results

Monitor

A Monitor that i will gladly recommend. So Far no backlight and 144hz is great with G-Sync addition

Now that's how you do it, great first build man really clean.

Does the BIOS freeze every time you enter?

DemonPhoenixZ submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

More like after i enter the BIOS, it freezes after like 15 seconds or like i enter AI Tweaker where the CPU options are

Have you tried clearing CMOS and then loading optimized defaults in the BIOS?

DemonPhoenixZ submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

havent tried it yet but is it like taking out that battery and waiting a few minutes and then putting it back in?

DS4130 3 Builds 1 point 15 months ago

Shouldn't be necessary, the board will either have a clear CMOS button or jumper :)

How well does that cpu cooler perform? Would you recommend it? +1 btw!

DemonPhoenixZ submitter 1 Build 2 points 15 months ago

This CPU Cooler is a legend. The Tower heatsink design is just that good as expected of Noctua. The temperatures so far im getting have been max 62 Celsius. Maybe its due to the cold weather in the UK and the fact i have an EK Vardar f4 120mm as the fan instead of the NF F12 that came with it.

Overall, i do recommend this CPU cooler as its best for its value. Tho there are cheaper variants like the PH TC12DX. I would say that this beats it.

Also Max Temps are at 62 Celsius with 4.2Ghz OC at 1.25V

Only overclocked a little as my usage is not cpu intensive but rather on the gpu side

Wow! Thanks for the really meaningful, detailed reply! I actually ordered it on friday and based off this and many other replies from people, i highly doubt i'll regret it.

you know you could tie those cables down which are going to the GPU with a zip tie or a twist tie. Which makes a lot cleaner and nicer
