After 4 years, 5 months, 2 weeks, and 3 days, i finally have my dream build. The theme colors are blue, white, and black (if you haven't noticed) and i tried to go for a minimalist/clean look with pretty good cable management. I love Star Wars so i made sure that the whole setup has a Star Wars vibe to it. The posters and the little storm-trooper head in front of my middle speaker ties it all in together. Anyway, if you were wondering, the table and drawer units are from Ikea, the table is Linnmon/Adils and the drawer is an ALEX unit. I also have some LED strip lighting that cost about 20 dollars from Amazon.com, full RGB by the way. The 980 inside this thing is idle at 35C in the summer and 27C in the Winter. Under full load it doesn't go above 65C and usually its at 50C. The same goes for the CPU, the temps are identical. This baby can run anything from Pacman to Star Wars Battlefront at a smooth 144 frames per second with 144hz refresh rate. The system is 1080p overkill but i like 1080p so it fits me perfectly. No need for those power consuming 1440p's and 4K's as my monitor is only 1080p and can't support those resolutions flawlessly anyway. CSGO is a bliss, perfect and absolute utter smoothness, I play CSGO like a champ on this thing, but that's beside the point. Anyway, i finally got the setup i dreamed of after 4 years, 5 mo---well, you get the idea. All i can say is...PC MASTER RACE!!!
Low temps and high frames, all is good, but the "turbo boost tech" is kind of annoying as it causes spikes on my CPU's usage percentage, goes from 2% to 90% which causes the temp to do the same which is annoying.
Keeps my stuff cool but its a pain to install and looks ugly.
Great motherboard, no issues, great UI.
Looks good, works good, what can say? Its great!
This thing is fast, like rally fast, sanic fast
Great HDD, could be faster.
I'm at loss of words here, this thing is epic, 1080p overkill ftw.
Its white...and blue...its r2....d2.
No noise, doesn't heat up, no issues.
Great OS but im pretty sure this is part of Microsoft's plan to take over the world
Wireless Network Adapter
I get 100 Mbps download speed with this.
Quiet and looks nice.
Once you go 144hz, you can never go back. Kind of a curse really.
Cheap waterproof keyboard that looks good and the buttons feel niiicce.
The mouse is fantastic and their customer support is absolutely wonderful, they sent me a FREE replacement after the first one had some issues. The second one works great, i've been using it 1+ years no issues.
Sounds amazing but this is better for gaming than music.
This will earthquake ur room, haha.....im not kidding -.-
I hate the texture of it, it feels weird like chalk, but it does its job.
