Description

Used for gaming and normal computer work. Pictures reflect upgrade history.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Great cooler for the price and competes with other mid range coolers <$40.

Motherboard

Never gave me any problems. Cheap board with a good thermal design and sli support.

Storage

Boots windows in seconds. Makes the entire computer feel lightning fast. Don't go without an SSD!

Storage

noisy, had corruption problems

Video Card

Solidly designed card. RGB can be used to monitor temperature range

Case

Solid case, great cable management, neat features, and lots of room for expansion.

Power Supply

Seasonic made and great for budget builders.

Operating System

Cortana and preinstalled bloatware make it lose a star

Wireless Network Adapter

DOES NOT WORK ON WINDOWS 10. Connection is extremely slow and drops out every few minutes. TP Link support will not help and will only say its meant to be used with windows 8.1 and below.

Monitor

Very limited in features, no support. The display however is very nice. LG AH-IPS panel.

Keyboard

Solidly built no frills mechanical keyboard. The board is coated with a soft touch finish which feels nice and is easy to clean. Other features include metal backplate reinforcement and a removable braided USB cable. The clicky Cherry MX blue switches are satisfying to type on and the difference is night and day compared to a traditional membrane keyboard. It is fairly loud though.

Whenever I see that 810, I fall in love with it.
A few pros and cons about your build:

Pros

  • Very high quality audio system;
  • Great cable management in a very spacious case;
  • The PSU.

Cons

  • Very low VRAM for 2016;
  • Z97 mobo with locked CPU;
  • As you said, the thermal paste.
I put this build a 8/10! :-D

I've heard that some toothpastes serve as a better thermal compound than the intel stock heatpaste lol, so I guess you could give that a shot? JK don't try it

Actually tried that once when I had no thermal paste on hand. It works but is a mess to clean up

about the VE248H monitor, did you test others on the same computer? are you using hdmi known to sometimes default to rgb limited on nvidia?

Not sure about the HDMI issue but I've only used VGA and DVI and they've both worked great.

you should use the gpu as a physx card and pair it with a gtx 950

I'm good for now. Actually downgraded from a HD 7950 which is similar to a R9 280.

I don't have much time to game and my pc is now hooked up to a 1280x1024 monitor. The games I play run at 60FPS with settings near high to ultra at that resolution.

Doesn't seem like a good benchmarking tool but here are the results:
