Description

Hello! This is my first build and i would love feedback, Thanks!

I have been saving and researching for over a year for this PC, and it felt unreal ordering the parts. I had been of school for a while (a really long while!) dealing with mental issues so this was me and my parents motive for getting me back to school. Coming from a laptop which couldn't fill my needs of what i wanted to do, i needed something semi-powerful so i could play heavy games, edit videos and edit/create pictures, and after getting settled into this computer it is difficult to think that i was doing everything i was on my laptop! This machine boots up 200% faster, runs games 1000% better and multitasks without a hitch!

Part Reviews

CPU

Multitasks like a beast, it is a great CPU for the money!

Motherboard

I really like it, it's got a clean bios and a great manual, and won't stuff up your color scheme!

Memory

It's 8 gb and it's fast! SANIC FAAST!

Storage

It's a terabyte so it can store all my completely legally obtained files, and remove them quickly in case of an emergency.

Video Card

It's a hungry beast, that munches through 1080p gaming, silently, like no there is no tomorrow! And it doesn't use much power!

Case

A great case with great cable management holes! Although i wish i could figure out how to take out the SSD cage. No cuts for me!

Power Supply

I never needed this much power but i wanted a high quality power supply, and that's exactly what i got! The cables are a bit stiff at the ends, so for tight cases the do need a bit of wrestling to plug in.

Wireless Network Adapter

Doesn't pick up my internet signal very well, not a lot of range on it as well. I would recommend it's 3 pronged brother and spend a bit more of you hard earned cash.

Monitor

It's a great monitor, nice colors.

Keyboard

A bit clunky but it should really only be a place holder.

Maybe a SSD (Intel 530 series 240 GB?) and maybe a i5-4950k

TerraHD 2 points 43 months ago

Why the 530 series when the 730 series is out?

berlinger99 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

lol dont listen to this. get a samsung 850 evo 120gb ssd and ur all set.

Silgrian 1 point 43 months ago

Yes to this It's pretty cheap for $/gb and is as quick as greased lightning

spaites submitter 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

I am considering getting an SSD, and i do like the sound of an Intel 530 or 730 series SSD. But i think i will stick with my current CPU as coming from a laptop i don't need much to tickle my fancy :D

no cpu cooler ??

Don't need an aftermarket cooler for most locked Intel chips.

spaites submitter 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

the current stock cooler does a good enough keeping it at a toasty 35 degrees Celsius at idle :D

Replace that PSU. The G1 units are terrible. Really poor performers.

What better PSU would you recommend for this build?

tiny_voices 4 Builds 2 points 43 months ago

Anything from Antec, XFX, Seasonic, EVGA (G2,B2,GS)

Right now there is a Seasonic 520w PSU on sale for pretty cheap.

kolootski 1 point 43 months ago

Thank you!

tiny_voices 4 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

spaites submitter 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

I will look into it! Thanks!

XD no, it is not a 'What about Bob?' reference. More of a: Me: "What shall I call him?" Friends: "BOB!" Thanks for the +1!
