This build exceeds my expectations.
Brain: The Skylake i3 6100 is very calm, FAST, and cool! I can not feel any less performance from my previous experience with previous gen quad cores. I edit photos, videos and demanding games. The Hyper Threading from intel is friggin powerful, I don't see any lag on multi-tasking on this dual core. I use standard CPU cooler and was planning to upgrade to aftermarket coolers, but to my discovery this chip is so cool that playing "Dying Light" only maxes it at 46 Celsius.
Mothrboard: Gigabyte GA-H110M-A is tiny as you would expect. No raid, no M2 slot, and of course no OC. So invest more on this part if you want it to be more futureproof. But it works flawlessly. Don't use Mem speed more than 2133 though, as this Mobo only use the slowest DDR4 mem speed (although it's still friggin fast)
Mem: We bought two single 8gb on amazon cuz weirdly it's cheaper than the duo set. The mobo detected it fine and sets them as dual-channel automatically.
Storage: Now this probably why my PC felt waaay faster. Almost no loading on anything except for a few second on demanding games installed on the SSD, and this is not even the best of ssds.
The XFX R9 380: FAST BEAST. YOU CAN MAX OUT STUFF AND PLAY HEAVY GAMES ON THIS CARD. I set ultra on Skyrim on 1080p max out on every single settings and this card DOESN"T BREAK A SWEAT, temp only reached 37-47! (idle temp is 31) I haven't reached 60 degrees C so far. I had some issues with the PSU (non performance related) that i will discuss on the PSU section.
The Heart (PSU): This PSU work flawlessly and seems to provide constant power to the PC parts It's efficient 80+ gold meaning only 3-7% of power turned into heat, making the build cool and silent. But I would suggest a gamer PSU for gamer GPU since I have to use molex connector for the one of the 2 6pin power on the GPU. Using a branching cable 6pin is not recommended since the cable can get very hot that it can melt plastic. This PSU comes with two 6+2pin Pcie power connector, meaning it provides more than enough for the 190w (max) 2x6pin GPU like the R9 380.
Case: Apevia qpack 3 is decent. But I like the internal build quality, it's roomy, easy, and has a good airflow and heat dissipation. The PSU take fresh air from outside of the casing and blowing it out outside again without giving warm air to the system. You might want to buy another fan (120mm) for exhaust. For installation this case is very easy because of the swiveling top part. Minus two stars for not supporting SLI/CF and you can't install 120x2 radiator in this case. Better opt for the Thermaltake equivalent for just $10 more.
FAST EFFICIENT COOL AFFORDABLE
Spend more on a higher spec MoBo. But this works just fine.
If you're happy with 1080p THIS CARD MAXES OUT ANYTHING ON THAT RES.
Cheap finish. No room for SLI/CF. No room for liquid coolers radiator. Better suited for non enthusiast. Good frame built quality.
Cool (not even warm) and quiet. No crashes whatsoever. Efficient.
Plug and play. Very good signal.
