Description

Firstly, I am a C3 complete quadriplegic and my daughter helped me transfer this computer from the original micro ATX case to the case listed here from start to finish. Most of the components (90%) were donated to me by stack-up.org a veteran gaming charity based out of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.

Although this build is marked as a completed build there are some future updates to be made both to the CPU and Motherboard or possibly utilizing this build for a streaming PC one day as I intend to have a two PC set up one day :-)

I would like to thank stack-up.org Dave, Cuddles, Shadow, & Houstongirl! And of course my daughter Christina who did all the physical labor :-)

Part Reviews

Motherboard

Cannot overclock over 4.2 GHz on single core 4 GHz on 4 cores so current CPU restricted which could be capable of up to 5 GHz plus.

Zero expandability with only two RAM slots maximum 64 GB and only one PC IE slot.

I believe this would be a great motherboard for a budget gaming build specifically if you are just getting into PC gaming

Nice build :D i am surprised that this PSU is enough for all those components.

The wattage is pretty close and it might end up switching it out for a 700-750 W when there's one on sale.

Huge difference in cable management from the original case to the new one. Good job. When do you think you'll be getting the new CPU, mobo, etc for your next version?

Hopefully in the next week or so. Computers are kind of money pits. Once you start it's hard to stop though with all the technology the way it is. Hopefully I'll have the i7-6800 K within the next 30 days or so with X 99 MSI motherboard and then hopefully SLI with a 1080 TI

I typically have to get funding from odd sources to pay for this stuff so it all depends on that.

You're an example to follow, man. It's awesome to see people like you, who are strong enough to keep going with their lives despite all the obstacles. Very well done, and I hope you can enjoy those hours with the new PC!

I definitely will be enjoying this for sure. I try to put myself out there to advocate and raise awareness for people living with spinal injuries and paralysis. You can check out Quadcapable.com which is my blog and I also stream on twitch.tv/Quadcapable

Nice set of fans for the build. That should keep your case dust free.

Yes I think so :-) I also have the exhaust fan that came with the case an additional two intakes that I had laying around.

did u need a bios update for your 7th gen cpu to work on this motherboard?

  • 25 months ago
  • 1 point

no, but i did auto update the bios to most recent version. i would recommend a x270ish mobo if you intend to overclock 7600 to its potential and an aio cooler

How did you fit the cooler master hyper 212 evo in the vivo v01 case? I have the VIVO v01 case and seen that numerous people have said that the 212 evo DOES fit in the case, but mine does not, I literally cant put the front panel back on my pc. I even tried taking the 212 evo out and making sure I put it in correctly and it still is too big for the case. SHould I get the cooler master HAF 912? is there enough room for the cpu cooler?

Get the HAF 912. EVO doesnt fit in vivo. There are other budget cases just make sure at least 8.5in depth. Or get a h55 AIO instead of air
