The first PC that I've ever built; much easier than I thought it would be :D I chose to go with a Black and White (mostly white) theme because I found black/blue and black/red builds a little too common. My original idea was to have a white and red build, but I could not find a white/red mobo as well as an all white case within my budget (also almost any CPU cooler on the market would look out of place in a build like that unless I painted it myself) . Used for school as well as PUBG, GTA V, Duck Game (guilty pleasure) and Portal 2. The GTX 1060/Ryzen 5 1600 can easily handle those games and school workloads. Since Ryzen is so good at it, I'm thinking of starting content creation.
Handles anything really, overclockable, and not ridiculously expensive. What's not to like? Also comes with very decent stock cooler (runs GTA V on ultra/very high at ~54° C).
Unique look, color scheme works perfectly with my parts, and at the $75-90 price point. IO shield is lackluster, but not a problem. Only flaw I can see is the fact that the 2 SATA ports under the USB 3.1 connector were arranged in a way that if you use the L cable it blocks both ports. Didn't cause any issues.
RAM is RAM. Not the cheapest, but not G.Skill's fault. Simple design goes with the motherboard, so it's fine.
Samsung SSD. 'Nuff said.
2TB for $70? Sounds good to me.
Great design, cool, and only $250 when I picked it up. Reason I'm only giving four stars is the lack of back plate.
-side note: nice little light to signify the GPU has power.
I'm loving this case. The white painted metal is glossy and smooth. Color scheme is great. very modular and lots of space. it was easy to build in, and I hid my excess cables in the included basement. Cable management was easy breezy as well. I don't mind the lack of tempered glass since it is only 60 bucks.
Does it's job. I didn't realize how much of a pain non-modular power supplies were. I was lucky to have a basement to shove all the useless molex's in. The cables were also much more ketchup/mustard-y than I thought they were (my bad I guess) still, it's cheap, 700W, 80+ Bronze, and EVGA.
Windows is Windows.
Best size for 1920x1080. 144Hz is buttery smooth.
Basic monitor for youtube watching on the side etc.
Decent keyboard for price. the RGB is pretty lackluster, but I'm cheap ;D
Fabulous headset. Very comfortable, decent mic. Only problem is that it is wired, but the wire is durable and wrapped in nylon.
