Hi, I've built this PC to do a few things I like to game and I left the good ol Xbox 360 behind hoping this fills the void left in my life haha. I am also going to use this for auto cad and a few other programs as I am in school for mechanical design right now that too is awesome. So the whole build for a newbie went well, I the only thing I had trouble with was the 1TB drive shows up in BIOS but I dont see it in windows any ideas im all ears.
UPDATE: Everything is working great now I think I found a new hobby haha as the title states this was fun now I'm trying to talk my brother into building a rig. The cpu idles at 30ish and playing fallout 4 for a few hours it's didn't get over 50 very pleased with my build couldn't imagine what a i7 and 1070 would be like ah well I'll go overkill next time.
This little fella is simply amazing! works very well and with the stock cooler it idles around 30C and i haven't seen it past 50C yet!
This worked very well for me the book was helpful the mobo looks good and I had no issues at all.
Boot time is around 40 seconds with this little guy, need I say more.
This was the only problem I had with my whole build, it wasn't even a problem i just didn't get formatted when I installed windows so I had to do it my self no big deal.
The only games I have right now are fallout 4 nba 2k14 and civ5, fallout 4 looks amazing and runs good no issues at all the card doesn't get hot at all. Also I can't ear this running.
The case looks good a bit flimsy not bad though, decent cable management but I think next time I get a case with a basement to clean up the look a little better.
Looks good works good no issues from here at all.
A bit loud, its the only part of my rig I can hear running ever. It does read DVD's
I like 10 so its got 5 stars from me.
