The machine works great! Bio-shock infinite, the Witcher 3, Doom (2016), and many other games run wonderfully on ultra settings. It doesn't get too loud under load or idle but it is noticeable. The R( #*) surprises me with its capabilities constantly. I easily get over 100 fps on most games and the 144hz free-sync monitor just makes it all better. A few problems include, After playing on ultra setting for about 4 hours the card gets a little too hot, the PC is not too quiet, and the motherboard doesn't have on-board WiFi. Other than that, i am very pleased with this build. I would recommend installing a water cooler in this case if you are going to use this graphics card.
