Description

So I have had a mac book pro 13" for 6 years (and counting) and I played video games on my PS4. I've grown tired of the crappy graphics and the inability to play certain games on a PS4. Additionally, I wanted a computer for image analysis as I am sometimes required to process large image files for my work. Thus, I decided to build a PC as its something I've always wanted to do.

I wanted a powerful machine that both wasn't huge and didn't break the bank so I settled on these parts. I could have saved some money by buying an Asus Z170A MOBO, an aircooler like the Cryorig H50 and not spending the extra $130 on PSU cables, radiator fans and LED strip, but I dont regret spending the extra money to make it look a bit better. This PC is blazing fast and has 60+ FPS on 1080p ULTRA for all games that I've played so far.

Part Reviews

CPU

Super fast and easy to overclock. Great processor for the money.

CPU Cooler

Cools with the best of them and looks great to boot. Just wish that the pump was a bit quieter and the stock fans are a bit loud.

Motherboard

This MOBO looks great and is great for overclocking processors. Has all the bells and whistles I need and has great sound to boot. BIOS is easy to navigate.

Memory

Its ram. White camo look fit my build perfectly.

Storage

Great SSD thats lightning fast. Have the same one in my mac book pro 13". No complaints here.

Case

Perfect Size for my build. Only complaint is that I couldn't fit my H110i on the top due to the plastic "TUF" guard on the mobo. Has great cable managemnet and air moves well through the case.

Case Fan

Much quieter than the stock H110i fans and push a lot more air through the radiator.

Haha I just picked that national geographic wallpaper of the internet right before I took the pictures as I hated the microsoft 10 default background.
