Part Reviews

CPU

So fast it set my house on fire

CPU Cooler

Great at this price point - usually keeps the i7 9700k at around 30 - 35 Celcius idle.

Video Card

Quiet and I enjoy a good ray-rracing slideshow as much as the next guy

Monitor

Great for 1080p gaming - dual link DVI and displayport 1.2

Mouse

If you like ambidextrous mice - this is the one. Have previously had the Taipan, Imperator and the Lachesis. Never had a problem with any of them. Would recommend.

Headphones

It's not Bang and Olusfen but at this price point you can't beat it

Custom

Yell at your team mates in crystal-clear clarity, or start a ****** podcast

Custom

For all honest Street Fighter players. Light and comfortable, much lighter than the more expensive Razer Panthera.

Custom

Almost half the price of an official XB1 controller and just as good - just make sure you download the PDP drivers from their website.

Custom

Perfect soft mat for long sessions, and relatively cheap. Have used Mantis speed, Scarab and Destructor in the past.

Custom

Dirt cheap, fast, great quality, and no changing ink cartridges. And has Ethernet + USB ports.

I would get a GPU backplate and a sound card backplate if they make them ( ;

Hi, this looks great! I want to build similar but was told the CPU cooler wouldn’t be sufficient for the CPU. how do you find it?

Thank you! Honestly, the 212x is fine - I'm sitting at 33*C idle here. If I was going to overclock seriously I would probably get something stronger, but for $49 AUD the 212X was the sweet spot for me.
