Description

This was my first time ever building a computer. I didn't know much about building a computer but after a month and a half of researching i found the parts I wanted. i have little to no complaints about all my parts. lets start of with the one complaint. all it is, is that the fans are a bit loud which is no big deal when i have head phones on. now lets go to the good stuff. Everything I run on this computer it can handle it at the max Hz of my monitor( my monitor is 75 Hz). I can easily run any game on max settings like Just Cause 3, Space Engineers, CS:GO, and Kerbal Space Program. I may have gone a little over kill on the RAM but in the end i have no regrets. I know I have horrible cable management but its OK. I'm using a old dell monitor for now because i don't have the money to get one yet but i will soon.

Part Reviews

CPU

great CPU no complaints at all and very fast

Motherboard

great motherboard and looks very sexy

Storage

not the best hard drive but great for its price

Video Card

this is a great graphics card. just a bit pricey but its worth it.

Case

nice quality has a nice cable management system. has a dust screen in the front and under the power supply. the one under the power supply is removable but the one on the front isn't. it comes with a top panel covering the mesh to block dust that is removable but dont use it is you have fans on top.

Case Fan

great fans but gust a little loud but fine when you have head phones on.

Mouse

very nice mouse fits my hand perfectly, all the buttons are easy to reach.

no have not had any problems very nice. recommend you get it its worth it. BTW don't forget to take off the protective seal on the logo its hard to after you put the graphics card in.

Yeah, I would recommend to do some cable management. This build is great and would not need any heat/power issues! Great build!
