This is my first PC build and before this I was a SCREAMER. AN XBOX SCREAMER. Glad those days are long gone.
Anyway, the build process itself was actually pretty smooth. No major hiccups or anything, except for a couple stripped screws on the case fans. But I'm wondering why those CPU temps are so hot. I'm thinking maybe thermal compound problem or silicon lottery problem. Will have benchmarks later.
Update #1: Made sure the pin was down correctly and it lowered temps by ~5* or so. Thinking about getting some new thermal compound or maybe a new CPU cooler. (10/30/17)
Update #2: Now I'm seeing load temps at ~93*C. I still think I should get some Arctic MX-4. (10/31/17)
Update #3: Returned the old processor w/ fan because one of the fan pins got bent during shipping. Now my temps fave finally gone down! (11/8/17)
Decent CPU, knocked 1 star off because of high temps, but other than that it has good performance in game.
I LOVE this motherboard. The UEFI BIOS is super easy to navigate, and the aesthetics of it all, including the white LED's, just go together with the build nicely.
White RAM, fast RAM, no issues RAM, pretty good!
Gets me the fps I need for a good price, since I'm more into e-sports. However I realize I could've gotten a 1050Ti.
Wonderful case to build in, and looks fantastic! The stock fans look nice and do their job without being too loud.
It didn't blow up. 'Nuff said.
