I have been busting out my gaming fix out of a 750ti for a few years now and a fx-4800, it was time for an upgrade. I worked all summer in between university and saved all my money to build this monstrosity. Thankfully I bought in right before the mining spike in GPU's!
Definitely overkill on my crappy 1080p 60hz tv but I will upgrade eventually. I ran into many many problems this build, but loading up windows for the first time was well worth it all.
Fast CPU, easy installation. No complaints here. The stock cooler is really nice and has nice RGB's.
The motherboard is asthetically pleasing, though a little annoying the IO panel is the same as the non-white version, and doesn't fit the color pallet at all. Doesn't matter too much since it is in the back, but that is the only real complaint hardware wise.
I had to knock off a star because of the BIOS. The first boot took way too much troubleshooting, and there seems to be a problem with the board with the first boot. I had to try a bunch of things, and once I cleared the CMOS I was golden. Be wary and ready for trouble.
The RGB's are nice, the plastic panel covering the top is poorly made and both can be removed fairly easily and taken apart, which shouldn't happen. It is nice and bright, and the memory is good once you overclock it.
Great card, make sure you can fit it in your case! RGB's are great.
I wanted to love this case, there is a known clearance issue with larger GPU's and even if you get a card that says it fits, theres a chance that the wires protruding will stop you from closing the side panel. You can try getting smaller wires if you have a problem or just leave the panel open like I have right now. Hopefully I will come to a fix for this soon. The plastic is kind of cheap feeling on the outside. Besides those things, the case looks really really nice.
Beautiful fans, probably overpriced.
Getting used to the cherry mx speed, but it feels fluid and the RGB's are some of the best on the market.
The mouse has nice weight. The front RGB's are a little useless. Really all the RGB's are useless because your hand is over it, but it looks pretty from afar. Feels like quality
