Part Reviews

Storage

Very fast and about $60 cheaper than the 850 EVO. Wish I had gotten a bigger SSD for games like GTA V, but this is perfect just for the OS and Steam client.

Storage

Decent price and good speed for a HDD.

Case

Perfect case for a first time build, great cable management and easy to use drive bays. Good dust filtration, every intake has a filter. 4 fans are included, 3 blue LED 200mm fans and 1 120 mm rear fan. Unique front design and looks good, especially with the blue LED lights.

Monitor

Looks amazing! Cheapest 1080p 144hz 1ms monitor on the market, at least in Canada. Doesn't lack quality, has a cool looking, sturdy stand. The only con I can think of is it that's not adjustable in any way.

Keyboard

Compared to a regular keyboard, this one is 10x more comfortable, especially with the palm rest on the bottom. Whether you're gaming for hours or typing a long essay, I'd definitely recommend this.

nice build. one question tho. why buy a 960 in November when u can buy a 1060 or 1050 for nearly the same price?

SirSenecal submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

I didn't know much about computers at all when I put the build list together so you'll have to excuse my price to performance.

You put the gpu in the wrong PCI express slot , if you want to take advantage of its full power you might want to change the orientation then move the wifi adapter into the one you have the gpu in now(it should work just the same from what i have read)

Tell me, how are those Sennheiser G4ME ZERO? Any complains?

SirSenecal submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

I actually added the wrong headset. I have the G4ME ONE. It's the most comfortable headset I've had so far.

Did you have nay trouble with rip jaws being a tad bit higher than the cpu cooller

SirSenecal submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Nope, they have tons of room beside the cooler.

S0LD13R 1 point 2 months ago

Are you able to run a i3-6100 on that motherboard?
