In the process of rewriting this.
Best value for money Skylake CPU. Currently sitting at 4.4GHz comfortably using a Noctua NH U12P SE2 in push-pull in a Corsair 230t and getting fab temps.
Great cooler for an amazing price. Only complaint is that my motherboard can't control the fan speed, although the low noise headers work well.
If you can get it cheap this is a lovely board. Works really well with my red and blakc theme. You need to get the Gaming APP to control the RGB LEDs amd only the top half is RGB.
Everything I had hoped for. Effortlessly added 130MHz to the core and 600MHz to the memory. Sitting at 2088MHz average with frequent boosts to 2101MHz.
Awesome case, just a shame that the side panel mounting solution is a bit cheap and no rubber gromets.
Its an EVGA PSU, it works well, its good.
A great compromise if you don't have the cash for Gsync/Freesync, 144Hz or 27". At 25" you still get loads of screen real-estate from the 2560x1440 resolution for £100 price reduction. The stand is sturdy and easy to mount, the cable management hole is useful, the I/O is superb and panel quality is the best I have ever seen (although my experience is very limited). Viewing angles are amazing coming from a TV/Laptop combo and the contrast ratio/colours look good (I am not as blown away as I thought I might be, but I don't do any colour work...).
I have so far played Witcher 3 Wild Hunt and World of Warcraft and both look the best I have ever seen them in person.
I would recommend using no scaling, however bear in mind that in a plug and play state, Windows scaled to 125% for me. Additionally, I had to use GeForce Experience to get some of my games to offer 1440p.
