Description

This started out with a 1k budget but as I began learning what's good with pc hardware I decided to step it up and go all out. Really really stoked on this completed build. Everything went together smooth and I am extremely satisfied. My one gripe being I should have gotten a better looking case, but oh well, consider it a sleeper build.

The actual tower cost about 1300, then spent a good bit on periferals after running some budget stuff that just wasn't cutting it.

Using this for gaming. Rust, Battlefield, R6: Siege. Really great for these applications. Can run maxed settings on all my games.

Part Reviews

Monitor

Color is fantastic after you play with the settings a bit. Turn your Gama down on your pc settings and this monitor shines. The 144hz makes your pc feel very fast and responsive. Didn't realize how good of a system I had until I plugged it into this monitor.

Keyboard

I bought the strafe keyboard, sabre mouse and void headset together because corsair uses a single software program for all their rgb periferals. Very satisfied with my purchases.

Mouse

I bought the strafe keyboard, sabre mouse and void headset together because corsair uses a single software program for all their rgb periferals. Very satisfied with my purchases.

Headphones

Maybe on the peripherals but he could have had Corsair Cooler, RAM, SSD, and PSU lol

Lol not really. I just saw that they had nice software for their products and the keyboard mouse and headset all use the same software.

Very nice components. I don't know what you use this machine exactly for so I must admit, great choice of a processor and hard drives. My next build is probably going to consist of a WD Black as well. How's yours treating you? Noise and heat-wise that is.

Using it for gaming and recording music. The HDD is working fine, haven't really noticed any noise from it and it always seems to be at 30c. However I have most of my programs on the SSD.
