Description

I just use this for gaming and school work. I started out in 2017 with a 1050 G1 and an AMD FX-6300, and here I am today with a 1080 ti and an R7 1800x.

If anyone knows how to keep the GPU from sagging slightly without putting something under it or how to OC with MSI afterburner and the risks and pros so i can get convinced to do it down below in the comments

To fix sag try watching this video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EOXYE3hx_JY And for how to overclock with msi afterburner: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SKWbKCKsWVQ

And it depends on your card whether it can hit a high oc or no and the performance gains are usually 10-20ish frames

Pro: More performance Con: None

How do you feel about the huntsman? I'm considering buying it, how do the keys feel?

i came from a Corsair k55 and those keys are heavy. these keys are light, responsive and the backlight is pretty nice too. i would recommend this but the only con i have about this keyboard is there are no USB ports on the keyboard which really doesn't matter to me.

A pretty sweet build, but please add a second PCIe power cable for your GPU. Running both connectors off one cable means running around 200W (possibly more, depending on how the card balances cable and slot power) or almost 17A of power through that cable (more than 20A if the full power of the card runs through those connectors). That's a lot. At the very least the cable will become hot under load (meaning you're wasting power heating up a cable, and if the cable or connector are cheap and bad they might melt and short out), but you're also not providing the best possible power to your card, as cable losses also lead to increased voltage drop. In particular for 8-pin connectors, run one cable per connector from the PSU.

I can feel the extra FPS beaming from the RGB

RGB = More FPS
