Bit of a strange build.
I don't know why it has taken over a year to create this post but oh well!
This is my first PC build, after I started researching PC hardware for a while I become interested in building my own PC.
I wanted something relatively cheap but powerful, that had the potential to be upgraded in the long run. I built it primarily for university coursework (report writing, app creation, database design, multimedia projects etc) and also some casual gaming.
The system has been amazing, the OS running on the SSD has been super fast and I couldn't imagine going back to a regular HDD. You are probably wondering why I have 2 rather low capacity SSD's and nothing else - this is because I got a good deal for the two SSD's on Black Friday and haven't found the need for any more storage since. I have my OS and general applications on the 120GB drive and games on the 240GB drive.
I was forced to purchase the Razer edition of the S340 because they had none of the regular cases in stock but its done the job as expected!
All other components in the system have been solid and I'm very happy I decided to build it as I couldn't imagine going back to a laptop like I was used to!
*Sorry for the lack of pictures and lack of CPU/GPU temperature info.
Runs cool according to the software I have on my PC, haven't experienced any problems with it and I'm glad i chose it over the i3 6100 to enhance my gaming experience.
Great board with lots of features and upgrade potential
Works as expected, 2666 speed helps my CPU in CPU intensive games.
Use it as a boot drive and it's amazing
Use it to store my games and it's amazing
Can handle pretty much every game I've thrown at it on High settings 1080p, produces a steady 50-60 fps on more demanding games.
Nice looking case with good room and nice cable management.
Amazing power supply as expected!
