I have had like 3 laptops and the last one was meant for gaming, long story short it sucked so I started looking for high end gaming laptops, for a setup like this (same gpu but different cpu) will cost more than this!
Check my instagram: @medokn
What I might upgrade to later:
Get a better case?
*Maybe a 240mm liquid cooler. done
Maybe an RGB strip or two lol.
Of course I have at least 2 hard drives if someone is wondering.
I added 3 corsair sp120's in the front...
Fans at full speed ON STOCK COOLER: email@example.com 1.3v Idle GPU: 35C Idle CPU: 34C load GPU(Heaven 4.0): 68C load CPU (Aida 64): 75C
on MasterLiquid 240: see details
CPU voltage: 1.425v SoC/NB: 1.2-1.3v Ram voltage: 1.5v
Max Ram/bios version:
2933 on v1.3, 1.4, 1.41, 1.5, 1.52, 1.7 & 1.81
3200 in v1.82
Cinebench r15: 1692
Really nice performance for what you pay for compared to what intel offers, if you're into video editing, multitasking, gaming, virtual machines, 3d rendering (wait is that a gpu thing lol) etc. Yes you can get 5-10% more performance on a similarly priced i7 in gaming but you'd lose ~50% on anything else. Basically a $330 from amd vs $1000 from intel for 8 cores...
I got the updated version with am4 instructions (and a sticker on the box), the installation took time and effort but overall great temps for the price (i got it on sale).
Really nice looking board with just the right features and more, kind of lacking in terms of sata ports and included accessories but overall fantastic. And has RGB.
It's ram, it's fast, definitely recommended especially if you're rocking an amd ryzen cpu, it really benefits from faster ram
No the fastest thing, but certainly goes faster once you raid-0 two of them.
Totally overkill for what I do right now, def getting a 4K monitor soon.
Its most selling point is its looks, in practice, you might find some difficulties with handling this case, first of all, the different types of screws that came in a box in this case are not labelled, definitely a frustration for a first time builder like me, second, the side panel with the window is hard to open or close, and there is just not enough cable tie holes, but I like how many drive cages it has and the front SSD mounts that can be seen from the window, and can be oriented in any direction because its close enough to the mobo's cutouts and also has its own cutout on the other side, its actually easy to build in this thing once you get used to how it is built, you definitely get some nice room for your large hands with the opening up top, I would recommend this if you're looking at this price range and want the best looking case to show off with its large curved window... Edit: so i found a graph that shows what screws go where on the manual or their website (1 problem solved).
Its 650W, more than enough, wasn't really interested in the gold efficiency thingy and wanted something cheaper but I think that it will last for a long time, but I think you generally get better quality components as their efficiency increases, also didn't mind the semi modular thing but its a bonus. Ah also black cables.
I chose to get this ultrawide so that I could get a little bit of immersion in a small space, definitely not the highest resolution or the best, but does the job for right now...
The best and most comfortable of the budget mice that I have tried, recommended!
Has good feel to the keys and silent enough and satisfying response, does not have the greatest manual and frustrating to set to one color statically
other than white, but overall good.
Edit: So after that I figured out how to configure a custom light (static), first of all, you have to press ALL KEYS and set your desired colour, and when you set your keyboard to one of three on-board profiles, you can't use the windows key! lmao.
