Description

Using this PC for light gaming (CSGO, Overwatch) as well as college work. All parts are working great (although my GPU isn't here yet).

See my part reviews for more in-depth thoughts on individual parts. Overall this PC is silent, powerful, and looks good. Couldn't be happier.

Part Reviews

CPU

Don't care about overclocking? Get this.

Stock cooler runs whisper quiet - aftermarket cooler not needed.

Motherboard

OK motherboard. It only came with 2 SATA cables (it has 4 SATAs though). If you're like me and have 3 SATA devices (in my case, an SSD, HDD, and optical drive) make sure you order an extra cable. Also the audio driver isn't working.

Memory

It's RAM. You need 2133 DDR4? Get this.

Storage

It works, and it works fast. The EVO is one of the best out there, and you won't be disappointed.

Video Card

I needed a card to help me run CSGO and overwatch. Found this refurbished for $150. Greatest investment of my build. Runs CSGO at 300fps max settings 1080p.

Case

Big enough for a comfortable build. Small and attractive enough to look good in your room. Instructions were unclear at times but if I can figure it out, you will too. This case helped me a lot with my first time building. Lots of space and cable management was relatively easy. Very quiet as well! NCIX has a great video on this case if you need more convincing.

Power Supply

Haven't heard it yet. Came with a lot of cables, which are comfortable to use.

Optical Drive

Not the quietest, but it does its job well.

I installed Windows 10 and now I don't have any issues. Sorry for the month-late reply, hope your issues are fixed by now.
