If you want any benchmarks or pictures of more, I’ll try my best to do so
The only complaint I have is how bad cable management is with the Corsair 400c. There not much room so you’re forced to either have your drive cage stick out or you have to man handle your panel a bit to get it back on. I also noticed a couple days after posting this when I was applying better thermal paste, the silicone adhesive seems to have an imperfection. This doesn’t show as a problem, but I’m being careful for now
On the flip side, I’m very pleased with this build and I plan on adding a dedicated graphics cards later down the road and maybe opting for a better keyboard.
The cpu is great. It’s good for low to medium and sometimes high/max settings for games. I got mine stable at 3.8Ghz with 1.4V. This is the best apu you can get and it’ll only improve as time goes(updates) until new architecture is released, or Ryzen 7 series gets their treatment.
This is a very high quality b350 motherboard at a great price. It’s easy to use the bios and is Ryzen 2000 ready.
The RGB is mesmerizing and Team Force is by far my favorite brand for ram. They’ve made quality ram for years and you can find people tweaking their ram to almost unimaginable timings. The ram is also qualified by every motherboard manufacturer.
The ssd is light and fast. 240gb is plenty of storage for an ssd. Not much else to say
This case is plain but sleek. The airflow is great and the build quality is up to standard for the price. The only complaints are small. There’s no room to stuff your cables unless you want your hard drive cage moved over and ruining the sleekness of the case. If you don’t move it, you’ll have to work awhile on cable management and will still have to man handle the back panel in place and screw it in while pushing on the panel.
This is gold certified, fully modular, with a 550W rating for $70. Doesn’t get any better than that. It’s also a high quality psu from EVGA, a highly trusted company. No one would say don’t get an EVGA psu unless they’re insane.
Seems like an unheard of monitor. It’s a good and very colorful IPS monitor that also has free sync, 75hz, for $130
Lighting effects are limited. Probably the only part I regret in my build since cooler Master offers a better keyboard within the price range. This is membrane and feels like it. The rainbow effect is choppy, but for $40, this keyboard isn’t so bad with dedicated media controls and macro keys. The wrist rest is good but too short for me to use with how I position my hand
If you want a mouse that fits all hand grips, don’t bother looking anywhere but here. 16000dpi is a lot and counter productive so stay with lower settings unless you’re a mad man.
The headphones feel great and sound amazing. The mic is perfect at the price point. These are a bit on the tight side when putting on so you’ll feel some pressure around your ears at first but it’s not noticeable unless you think about it
