Description

I don't wana tell the story of the PC cause its too long. It was easy to build, costed alot though. SSD is fast.

Part Reviews

CPU

Decent quad-core, wouldn't recommend buying nowadays unless you already have an LGA1150 motherboard waiting to be filled. Instead buy the i5 6400 or 6500.

CPU Cooler

It's a cooler, what can I say?

Motherboard

Wish it had more fan slots. It's a nice looking board, supports 2 PCIE cards, USB 3 support, Supports 32 Gigs of RAM. This thing will last me a while.

Storage

5 second boot time. GTA 5 load times are incredible. Nice SSD for the price.

Storage

1TB + SSHD speeds + low price + Western Digital = 5 stars

Video Card

Plays all of my games at 1080 High or Ultra at 60 FPS

Case

3 Fans on case, only 2 slots on motherboard, still a good case however. Attracts a **** ton of dust.

Power Supply

Cable management is a bit hard, the cables are a bit floppy, but it supplies a decent amount of power, and is efficient.

Optical Drive

Deafening when in use.

Two sentences of the description that seems to say, I don't feel like sharing a story at the moment. One worded, two worded and once four worded but repetitive with each part review. I feel sorry for the optical drive because it's only doing it's job when it's being used... and I used to work with floppy disks as a little girl but I didn't get it either. It was just fun to slide a floppy disk in and out of a computer at the time.

Ah the simplistic explanations runs deep with this build. Unless it's updated sometime soon or in the future. I wish I could see the computer but otherwise enjoy it.

Hi dude. i preetty much rebuildt your entire build because im a noob at pc building and i didnt know how to pick parts :D i already had the processor and i really wanted the video card. so thanks for helping i guess? :) is it loud while in use?

PS: does it look cool with the LEDs inside and was it hard to install them? would you recommend installing some?
