So glad to finally build a PC! Mostly used for Minecraft, schoolwork and internet browsing.

Cpu: Great Cpu for the price! At 4.0ghz and 1.25 volts it is very stable. Find no reason to overclock further, it performs so well!

Cpu cooler: Keeps temps real cool, but the included mounting hardware was difficult to use.

Motherboard: Great motherboard. The UEFI is intuitive, the blue and black theme looks good, everything you would want from a motherboard.

VIdeo card: Very powerful. Got thirty fps on Minecraft with ultra plus shaders at max settings.

Ram: Got 16 GBs free from a family member (Ripjaws x series 2x8GBs)

Case and psu: This was the only disappointment of the build. When we brought the box inside, it looked as if it had fallen out the back of a truck. We had to rip the box off of the case because it was packaged so tightly. The front panel of the case was missing the plastic pieces that hold it to the chassis, the drive bay cover latches broke anytime I tried to take on off, and the plastic between the 3.5in drive bays and the optical drive bays was broken. Additionally, the front usb ports get pushed into the case when you try to put in a flash drive. We filed a damage report, fingers crossed we get a new front panel.

Fan: We actually have the blue variety. Cools well, but is slightly noisy.

Mouse: For $6, this mouse was great! The dpi button is very useful when switching from Minecraft to web browsing.

The PSU in that case is completely junk. I'd replace it before it does damage.

An Antec VP-450 is cheap and a GREAT replacement.
