this is a great build for someone looking for a decent pc for okay performance that looks nice, but can only buy a part at a time!! take note that you also do not need to have everything to get it to run, as my pictures show.
i will upload a photo of when its finished and all together.
parts needed to get it to run: -apu -mother board -one set of ram -hard drive -case -power supply total: around $570
performs as an apu should, would of liked to see a little more from it before overclocking. stock cooler is one of the best stock coolers i've seen, wouldn't try oc with it though
love the motherboard does everything i need it to and then some. asrock is not afraid to fill up the back io with tons of ports. looks great and the sound is awesome.
con: i did have to flash the uefi to stop windows 10 kernal security check failure (bsod), dont know if it was my build or the mother board, it would happen randomly so there was no way i could replicate the crash
its cas 9 ddr3-2133, performs like it should.
pros: looks great, lots of room for cable management or cooling or drives, awesome for having two usb 3.0 on the front
cons: cable management panel was super hard to get off (i believe they put it on before the paint was completely dry on some spots), front usb 2.0 ports only have one lead going into the mother board so i have issues trying to plug two things in that port (could just be me though).
other: small dent on the cable management panel. not sure if it was from factory or shipping (shipped by fedex), but all and all not a big deal.
works good and is fully modular, looks nice also, great price
