Part Reviews

CPU

So far this thing is literally a beast, absolute unit of a CPU. I honestly didnt even need to go higher than this because if youre making a PC for gaming I honestly dont know why you would even need more than this beast of a CPU. in terms of just pure performance and value I dont think there is a better cpu on the market.

CPU Cooler

The rgb is great but im getting incredibly awful temps and the pump is really loud, Im going to replace it and see how it does and will update this review after replacing mine

Motherboard

Got this on sale instead of the b450 tomahawk, does what its supposed to do and great quality, one star less because overclocking a bit more complicated than msis uefi, but good board still

Memory

its excellent quality rgb ram what more do you expect, i got this over the corsair vengeance pro because the heatsink design is cooler, good ram

Storage

the goat ssd what more can i say

Video Card

this card is an ABSOLUTE BEAST, it looks bloody amazing too with the red and black msi backplate, im so happy i got this card, i have a 60hz curved monitor so i only needed 60 fps, i play every game on ultra and this card gets well over 60 fps on most, average like 100-120 on rainbow 6 on max settings, gta v is in the 65-70s on everything max, this card is an absolute beast, recommend it over the 1060 6gb due to 2 more gb of vram.

Case

case is great, sadly mine came with a huge dent on the top right corner and i couldnt even take the glass off because the corner was bent inwards covering the glass, had to take it off with insane force, im going to get a replacement eventually, and will update the review as necessary, airflow not the best, but good aesthetic

Power Supply

its a psu what more do you want to read about it

How much did the monitor and peripherals cost?

yamanmalik submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Its the Asus Curved VZ27VQ mointor, I got it on a good sale for around $200 CDN, its normally around 350 ish cdn i think, the price on newegg is totally overpriced, I got it from best buy. its a 60hz monitor. As for the peripherals, I have the REDDRAGOn K551 VARA RGB keyboard, it has blue switches, its pretty great it was like 60-70 cdn on amazon, the mouse is also reddragon its called the cobra something, it was i believe 30 ish bucks. Thanks for the comment!

Thanks for your timely response, Im suprised that curved monitor only cost you $200, even if its only 60hz. And $1500 usually doesnt buy you a lot of RGB either, so congratulations!

Wow, I think I will use this build. I'll probably change the cooler, case and ram but that is just for the aesthetics, they are very good parts.

yamanmalik submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Yeah this build has been amazing so far dude, good luck !

If you are still looking for a water cooler, you can try and get the Corsair H100i V2, and this thing is beast for me.

If you want a good replacement cooler, i recommend a kraken x62 or 52. They have great performance for the noise.
