Description

I primarily use the machine for gaming. The price of graphics cards are really high so i couldn't afford one at the moment. my friend gave me a free GPU that will be able to hold me over until the prices drop. in most games i hit around 40-60 fps while the cpu temp stays at 40-55 c. the gpu is a little bit older so it runs pretty hot at 66 c sometimes. im especially fond of the cpu cooler with that cool infinity mirror design and the leds on the motherboard and in the case. overall its a really decent gaming build that can handle most games.

Part Reviews

CPU

Just an overall great cpu. the base clock for this chip is 3.60 but mine was running at 3.70 out of the box. doesn't get too hot.

CPU Cooler

Great cooler, love the led infinity mirror but rating 4 stars because the cables are kind of obvious and difficult to hide but its not that bad and it does a great job of keeping my cpu cool.

Thermal Compound

Just thermal paste. not much to say here.

Motherboard

amazing motherboard with rgb headers and wifi. neat silver io cover with a line of rgb

Storage

boots nice and fast. holds alot. still cheaper than an ssd but highly worth it

Video Card

Not the best (and newest) card out there but it gets the job done. got it for free so i cant complain much.

Case

Nice sleek modern design, fits right into my white setup.

Power Supply

Cool power supply 750 watt. chose it because in the future if i want to get another gpu for sli i can

excellent build. I am a big fan of intel so that why I like the build. by the way what graphics card you are gonna get once prices drop? if I were you I would get the GTX 1070 but it completely up to you.

PokeSuFan submitter 2 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Yes i defiantly will. i want to upgrade to the G.Skill trident Z rgb ram but that didn't fit in my budget. in the future i will get it.
