Neighborhood kid bought a few parts and then never did anything with them so I bought the mobo, ram, and case from him. Filled in the blanks, and put it together.
I am really surprised at how well games run on here. After being spoiled with 1440p/1080ti/gsync I didn't know what to expect. It's great! I played pubg on here for a few hours as soon as it was built, no chicken dinners but no issues either.
Update 5/4/18 I got that chicken dinner last night!
runs surprisingly well and i have a 8700k daily driver
good looking... check, only runs at 2933 on ryzen, 67mhz lost! ffs
I have this in a budget build and I have put samsung 960 evo's in my last 2 builds. real world differences? I haven't noticed or been let down
runs well, its strange to see gpu usage bounce the way these cards do. doesnt line up well in the corsair 400c with msi b350 tomahawk and makes it look like it has dramatic card sag. I used a PCIE slot cover to prop it up, perfect size.
great reviews on this as far as power delivery.
