I've wanted to build a computer for a while and after a year and three months of being obssesed with them i was finally able to build one. My best friend built a computer with this motherboard, ram, cpu cooler, and and cpu about a year ago and he wanted to upgrade to the i5 7600k. I had already purchased the power supply, case fans, and case, and also 16gb of DDR4 RAM (i was initially gonna do a pentium build). And when he upgraded i gave him the 16gb of ram (now he has 32 i know overkill), and he gave me his old parts. I've been used to playing intel hd graphics on a ****** laptop with only 4gb of ram and this is a huge upgrade. And before anyone talks **** on the APU, My buddy chose this a year ago before we really understood what the hell any of the components really meant. But with 16gb of ram im getting 60fps in Unturned, 80fps in csgo, 55 in Fallout new vegas, so its capable of playing slighlty less graphically intensive games at respectable framerates, and much better than the avg 25fps framerate i was getting before. These parts were given to me used so i didnt have all the zip ties to cable manage the hell out of it but i tried to keep it reasonably nice. Once i buy a discreet graphics card (The RX 460) i'll get some zip ties and tidy it up. But overall im incredibly pleased with how my first build cameout, its fast, it plays the games i wanna play, and its pretty. If you have any questions just comment and i'll reply
Pretty powerful little chip, the integrated graphics are good enough to play some lighter games.
Great cpu cooler for the money, havent tried overclocking with it yet but i will. It keeps the A10 7700K very cool.
Aside from the Brown pcb this motherboard is pretty great, it has two fan headers on it which most motherboards in this budget category dont have. The bios is easy to manage through
slightlier prettier memory
This case is fantastic. It has cable managment holes in it so its hella easy to work in, the back panel has a bump for all the cables, has two front usb ports, a really nice side window to look at your components. And a red led fan. and of course the best part is THE PRICE IS HELLA CHEAP. the one thing bad about it though is the included fan is pretty loud
Does the job
