Description

Bought for 14th birthday + Christmas. Took long to build although it's my first time. Used for gaming (GTA V, JC3, R6:S, PUBG)

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Sturdy but rigid. Lighting looks good.

Motherboard

Lights are nice and its sturdy and has more than enough features. MSI applications are useful too.

Storage

Boots in less than 10 seconds and reaches amazing speeds compared to old laptop HDD.

Case

Easy to use and lots of customisation. Has lots of space and looks good too.

Power Supply

Comes with lots of cables and the fan stays of until it's needed.

Optical Drive

Makes a very loud sound on boot up or whenever it reads discs.

Wireless Network Adapter

Makes a quiet high pitched sound whenever it receives data. Can't notice it if you're not putting your ear close by. Speeds have slightly improved compared to my old laptop.

Monitor

Looks good and works well. Has nice features and presets.

Keyboard

It's good for a membrane keyboard.

Mouse

Amazing mouse, consistent and nice lights.

Headphones

Razer Synapse software isn't very reliable but the sound and mic is fine.

Why all the Razer though?

Oh, wait, I read the description. Nevermind.

Not to mention the price of a MEMBRANE KEYBOARD

rojamb1234 2 Builds 1 point 32 months ago

Also a pair of Philips SHP9500 plus a modmic would cost 20 bucks cheaper than those krakens and would sound better and have higher build quality than those ever would.

Ill be getting Corsair next time.

Nice.

I wish my parents would've dropped 2k on me for a machine to play games on when I was 14. Nice build though and very similar to mine. Just clean up those cables like mlach said. You'll get better airflow and it will look way better.

xDizza submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

All clean

Make sure to clean up those cables.

xDizza submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

I will

Just wondering why the Freesync monitor?

rojamb1234 2 Builds 3 points 32 months ago

Some people REALLY want 1440P @ 144 HZ that they dont mind giving up Gsync to do it. Thats why you see alot of Nvidia cards with Freesyn monitors.

xDizza submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

Thats right :)

H0re 2 points 32 months ago

looks good clean up that management with cables a little use your top middle and bottom grommets more put you 24 pin through the middle grommet and the gpu through the bottom looks a lot nicer

Did you buy an anti-static wrist strap just to build this?

xDizza submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

Yes... why?

MjolnirThunder 1 point 32 months ago

Just seems goofy is all since I've never seen anyone list one a part of their build. Don't get me wrong - having the forethought about ESD protection is great on it's own, but you could have done the same thing by keeping a foot or something in contact with the case when handling each component. Neat build though, are you gonna post more pics after you clean up the cables?

ronin2309 1 point 29 months ago

Same mouse pad. And build pretty much.

MARCOzid 1 point 29 months ago

what is your gpu idle temp?

and is your country cold?

xDizza submitter 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

It sits around 38c with the fans active on idle. I always leave the fans on even though I could make them turn off when it's under 60c but the fans are silent anyway.

I live in Melbourne, Australia where the temperature always varies but my house temperature is usually 24c.

MARCOzid 1 point 29 months ago

when fan stop what the temp?

xDizza submitter 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

It's made to stop when it's under 60c but i've disabled that feature. It's called MSI Zero Frozr

Ordinarily_great 1 point 23 months ago

Never knew anti static strap is cheap

Goerge97 0 points 32 months ago

Like what rojamb1234 said, Razer can be a bit overpriced and you don't need a super OP mic, Modmic is good enough and you can get a a good headset instead of Razer gear.

No Youtube, just CS:GO, GTA5, Just Cause 3. No need for NASA PC. :)

also you could've downloaded windows offline on a flash drive and put it on your computer

Windows is loadable with a usb flash drive yes. However, the correct way is still to license it by purchased a valid Windows license key.
