Part Reviews

CPU

No RGB sadly... When will they make rgb CPUs? Like if we can even see them. Amazing CPU though. Can handle whatever I throw at it. Gets hot though.

CPU Cooler

Sort of RGB. Only one led for the logo. It was a relief when I attached this. It got my Ryzen 5 1600 down to the 40 to 50 degree zone under load. I wish the pipes were a little more flexible though.

Thermal Compound

Works and is better than the stock paste most companies give. No RGB though ;(

Motherboard

RGB EVERYWHERE. Love this motherboard. Maybe the best one out there. The RGB isn't accurate though. You could have white and it would show up as light blue.

Memory

The RGB is really nice. Just wish each individual leds could be changed. It's also pretty fast.

Storage

Works well. Don't really expect the speed to be top notch though. Where is the RGB?

Storage

Works well and is cost efficient. WD really needs to add some RGB.

Video Card

Best possible card for 1080p? Gets really hot though. And I like the addition of leds in the front

Case

RGB and tempered glass. What else is there to say? Cable management is a pain in the back though.

Power Supply

Nice PSU. Don't really like how the power cable is on top of the on and off switch though. Also, no RGB.

Operating System

It's windows.

Case Fan

THE GOD OF RGB. A little loud, but the colors are so vibrant.

Monitor

Nice 144hz 1080p monitor. It isn't really balanced on it's stand though and tends to rock back and forth. To solve the issue, I just made it lean onto my other monitor. The colors aren't that bright either.

Keyboard

My first mechanical keyboard. I'm loving it so much. I just wish there were some more multimedia buttons. Also, RGB is just plain awesome on this keyboard. Also like the addition of the USB port in the back.

Mouse

RGB is really nice on this mouse. I like the addition of 2 dpi buttons and a dedicated sniper button. The side buttons are a little small though. Also, it's a little heavy for me even after I took out the weights. Might be because of the aluminum base.

Speakers

Nice cheap speakers. No RGB though.

Other

Kinda big for my table but it works. A really nice mouse pad.

Other

Good headphones. It is big and it even fits my big ears. The volume control is too low on the cord though.

Other

It's a tool kit. It's not magnetic sadly.

Other

Just an old monitor I had lying around. I really like the colors though.

Other

Who has an Xbox controller without an Xbox anyway? Me.

Other

Why do computers have so many wires?

atree03 2 points 6 months ago

Damn, maybe it needs more RGB.

LegoCuber submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Yeh, maybe you are right... Everyone knows rgb makes your computer better

Looks really good! nice components, and that RGB mm <3...Do you think the HP omen monitor is worth getting?

LegoCuber submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thanks! And yes, the HP OMEN is worth getting if you don't mind the colors (or maybe its just my opinion) and the stand is a little off balanced, so it will tilt a bit. Aside from that, the monitor is probably an amazing choice for 144hz.

SweetTeeee 2 points 6 months ago

Awww thanks for the info! Yea I saw a few other reviews about the color issue, but hmm I think I'll risk it for the biscuit haha. I saw it on a good cyber monday sale at best buy, so imma try it.
