Description

I built this PC in December 2017 for a little over 700 dollars. Some parts I used have increased in price (like the gpu and the ssd) I use this PC mostly for gaming and every game I've tried has run at 60 or more fps. The case looks very nice (especially with the rgb fans) but the front panel restricts a lot of air/ I had problems connecting a second monitor but I was able to get it working by connecting it through the nvidia control panel rather than the normal settings.

I would highly recommend replacing that power supply. http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story6&reid=436

Other than that, it's a very nice looking build. I always fancied cases that supported three front mounted fans

Although the fans can't really be fully utilized due to the lack of airflow, Cooler Master should make a revision with airflow fixes and other things.

I got the fans mostly for the looks but I haven't had any problems with temperatures inside the case getting too hot so far

I have the RGB version and I have just moved the fans to the other side of the fan mount.

Yeah. Another way is to cut the front of the case and add a mesh panel to it. Possible DIY job. If executed right, it would look like the case originally looked like that.

I'm not a huge fan of the power supply either. Next one I'll buy will definitely be a modular

id recommend the 520w fully modular from seasonic. seasonic is known for making good psus, its bronze rated so that will help be more efficent then your current one and fully modular is always nice for cable management

That PSU, the S12ii and M12ii, are 8 years old. Also, brand has literally nothing to do with whether or not a PSU is good

looks over at the B3

age doesnt really matter tho and especially when the s12ii was given a 9.7 by jonnyguru http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story5&reid=185 so yea im gonna take his word over yours and thats that hes recommending the non modular one so i can guarantee the m12 is just as if not better then the s12ii

Yeah, I also think OP should have gotten an i5-670 instead, since that's basically your way of thinking.

It's totally not like protection needs and protection quality improves with time, right? Right???

I mean, this clearly shows that it's a very solid piece of equipment, so I don't see why not.

Do the fans look nice for the price

Yeah they look pretty good for 27 bucks and it has 366 modes built in, I might pick up another one to replace the stock fan in the back of the case

Can you change the lights/color of the fans individually(One blue, the other one green, yellow, etc)? If yes, how? Just pointing the controller towards each of them?

I'm pretty sure you can. There is a way to program the fans but I haven't tried it yet.

Try to get a dual channel memory kit for Ryzen, it can have performance degradation with a single channel kit

Hi, can you control the RGB fans with your MOBO via RGB header? or by remote only?

  • 8 months ago

You can only control the fans with the included remote but the same company also sells rgb fan frames that are compatible with aura sync, msi mystic light, and gigabyte rgb fusion on amazon

Okay I'm really confused now. Why is this guy saying that his fans (I think same as yours) can sync through the MOBO. check his thread -----> https://pcpartpicker.com/comments/thread/2941808/
