I started thinking about building my own pc after my fx-6300 prebuilt had trouble running GTA5 and Witcher 3. When I got my first job I saved up my money and I watched youtube videos on building a pc and talked to people on discord about what would be a good build for about $1000. I ended up with this and I'm really happy with what turned out.
Got it cheap and does everything I need.
Install was pretty easy and it keeps my ryzen 2600 @4.1ghz 1.3375v at 70C max under 100% load.
UEFI is easy to use and didn't give me any problems with headers or installing other parts.
OCs to 3200mhz cl14 very well and is enough ram for most people
Fast boot drive with a good amount of space. would buy again.
Got this from another computer but it's fast enough for steam games and such.
Runs pretty hot and loud but doesn't throttle under advertised clocks and runs 1440p games at 100fps
Nice small ATX case with a side panel. Wish it had space for a 140mm fan in the back but can hold a 120mm rad in the front and looks really nice.
Keeps cable management down since its fully modular and provides enough power for my system. Hasn't given me any problems since I bought it.
Replaced the stock Fractal Design fan for exhausting air and keeps the case cool.
Got this for $300 and everything worked well. You need a displayport cable if you want G-Sync to work or to get the 155hz refresh rate but the hdmi 2.0 cable that is included runs the monitor at 144hz fine.
