I have been a console gamer forever, never tried to get into gaming PC because I felt intimidated by the process of building a PC and tweaking configs, etc.. PLus, I had the idea that building one would cost more than a ps4 or xbox one for example.
However, I decided to give it a try since my laptop is dying. I use photoshop lightroom and do some gaming.
I did a lot of reading, including here at this website, and that was extremely helpful. I bought all my components over a spam of 3 weeks, so I could get cheaper prices.
I was surprised but how easy was to build the PC. Even this being my first build, I was able to add RGB lighting, and synchronize with the RAM, MOBO and case. Also, I did a good job with cable management. The P400s case is awesome.
Best bang for you buck. I was able to easily overclock to 3.6Ghz with stock cooler and keeping the voltage around 1.25V. I might try to do it a bit more OC, but for now I am happy with the temps.
great looking B350 mobo, and got cheaper. ONly downside is that has a few bugs, that I am sure ASUS is working on that (like the lan adapter randomly stops working after a cold boot, so you need to disconnect the modem or reset the PC).
I can't set the voltage manually , like the f370, but I can OC the CPU and reduce voltage by using offset numbers
with the new bios update, I was able to reach 3066 speed easily by adding DOCP profile on the mobo. I did not have to change anything like timing or voltage, that was done automatically by the MOBO. I am sure in a few updates AMD will allow me to reach full speed. Great looking RAM, just don't use the Gskills software, use asus aura instead
lightning fast SSD. my windows 10 boots in less than 10 seconds
good and reliable HDD
great GPU, mine is silent, no coil whining.
awesome case, very easy cable management. I added one 120mm fan as exhaust and kept 2 front 120mm intake fans, and my temps are fine even with overclocked CPU
reliable PSU, good looking cables.
the white led is awesome, it is a neutral color, so it looks like it changes colors by reflecting the RGB light strip color
great, cheap mechanical keyboard. awesome looking, I was very impressed with the quality.
