Description

After months of waiting and buying parts individually, I finally completed my first PC build. It feels great to have successfully put together such a beast even though there are countless videos and tutorials showing everyone and their mom how to ( thanks BitWit). As you can see i didn't go with an I7 or a z370 board. I know some of you will say its blasphemy not to have those but honestly, i'm extremely happy with the I5 and b360 i have. The highest I've seen the I5 get is 43 while playing games like Quake champions and Apex legends. They haven't failed me yet. As for why the memory and GPU are listed as free, I have been blessed by my extremely generous uncle who constantly has to upgrade his components due to his line of work. As you may have already guessed, this thing is being used mainly for gaming and for work. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Feel free to ask any questions. (Btw sorry for the extra low tier photos haha)

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU. No need to pay an extra 200 for an i7 for 1080p.

CPU Cooler

Great cooler. Does what its supposed to and more. Cheap too.

Motherboard

Nice board with nice RGB as a plus. Hasn't failed me yet.

Memory

Beautiful and freaking fast, that's all I have to say.

Storage

Sleek and simple, not to mention exceptionally faster than an HDD.

Storage

Great for mass storage but make sure to pair it with an SSD for booting and a few important files. Does what it was made to do otherwise.

Case

I absolutely L O V E this case. It's a case that stands out not because it is flashy, but because it is simple. NZXT knows that not everyone wants a 3 foot tall case covered in RGB and they delivered. Small, sleek and pretty much just a box, this case is great.

Power Supply

Very good PSU. I was super surprised that it didn't explode when i flipped the switch for the first time considering how dirt cheap this thing is. Hands down the best budget PSU. Only reason it is a 4 star is because the SATA cables are L shaped and if not for the SSD mounts above the PSU shroud on my case, I wouldn't have been able to connect both my SSD and HDD.

Case Fan

These things are brilliant. They give off a beautiful shade of blue that's honestly almost too bright. Be aware that they are a little noisy but still very quiet at the same time. Two thumbs up.

The only problem with this is the Hyper 212 EVO, I know that it has amazing reviews and all and for the most part, it's an amazing cooler. But, it does have a history of having a bearing failure if pushed too hard. So I don't know if it is a bad thing to have it on your processor since its non-overclockable, but I just wanted to point that out.
