I recently build this machine with its components bought by my wife as a belated birthday and anniversary gift. This machine will be used for gaming (mostly FPS and sports simulators) and video and photo editors. The machine is doubly fast compared to my now-dead 2010 build. My advice for users who want to install Win7, please enable the Win7 support on the BIOS first. If not, the screen will hang at the 'Starting Windows' or at the installer menu.
20151224 - PC LED has been installed. Cable management still sucks
20151228 - Test score is 10231. Cable management did not improve but the side panel window hides it
I purchased this for its ability to be overclocked. Will give more update soon.
Solid build. It was intimidating initially but once you have secured the backplate onto the motherboard, you are good to go. Easy to work with.
The red and black colour scheme suits me. The price suits its build and quality.
Do enable Win7 startup in BIOS if you want to install an older OS than Win8.1. If not, you will be stuck at 'Starting Windows' or installation menu screens.
I got the red colour RAM and the heatspread did not obstruct my CPU fan.
Super fast. My first SSD purchase.
Whenever people talk about mechanical HDDs, WD Blue is the item to get.
Loving the build especially with the cooling structure. I have yet to OC this. Bought it for its red and black theme.
Easy case to work with. It allows me to run some cables at the back thus minimizing the airflow obstruction. Great case for people on budget.
My only wish is that this PSU is modular. I love the rough matte finish and cable sleeves. On a budget? Its cheap and quality 80+ Gold attributes will satisfy your mid to high end rig build.
I needed a cheap 1080p LED monitor with VESA mount for future configuration. Thought this is good.
I have not yet game with it but typing on this keyboard gives you that 'feel'.
I love the optional weights that you can insert into the mouse. My only gripe is the side buttons which my thumb will accidentally click at times.
You can feel the weight once it is worn. What I love about this headset is its elongated ear muffs design. They fit nicely around your ears. Not too small till they fold them unlike my previous cheap headset.
