(This is an update of the Red Panda 1.0)
I upgraded the CPU cooler on this PC since I wanted to see what kind of temps I could get the CPU it down to, but I hadn’t taken into consideration that you must configure the cooler before you are good to go XD So all the bench marks included are all with the fan and pump at stock speeds. In other words, the fan and pump wouldn’t ramp up when the CPU gets hot.
I will be making another update video with the cooler configurated AND overclocking on my 6800k (before I send it back to get a Kraken x62 XD)
Even if no one really sees this or cares its really here for me so I can look back in the future at everything!
For gaming I would rate this CPU a 4/5. This is solely due to it being a 6 core processor and not a quad core, and clocked higher. But as just a processor for everything, a solid 5/5. It hasnt let me down once and I've even overclocked it a small amount (Can't much more due to CPU cooler) I look to overclock this CPU a lot in the future :).
In my personal opinion. If you are thinking of getting a 140mm liquid cooler, you might as well go for a high end air cooler at around the same price. It just isn't worth it. I got okay idle temp but I would of been able to avidly overclock if I had just used the same amount of money to get an Air cooler. Thats why I will shortly be upgrading to a 280mm version.
Aside from the worse than expected cooling, I have to admit the LEDS are ******* insane. It can add any feel you want to any build you want. Which is why I am upgrading to the larger version of this cooler! XD.
I don't know too much about motherboards but I really like the on and off switch included to test if it will post before putting it into the PC! The RGB support is also cool (even though I don't use it) And I also like how the colour matches my theme :). One thing I do know about is the overclocking support on this motherboards BIOS is INSANE. Theres so much you can do with this board overclocking wise. It even has 2 modes, advanced and simple, depending on your knowledge... I highly recommend this PC to anyone trying to beat overclocking world records, or to someone who just wants a good motherboard for everything! :D
Great budget stick of ram, I haven't had any problems with it at all and it works just fine!
Stores stuff, is okay, nothing more to say! :)
Has been the soul of my build for 4 years now, even though I'm upgrading, this card has served me so well. Has NEVER failed me, and is able to run every flagship of its time. AKA, GTA, Outlast, Portal 2, etc!
One of the best purchases I ever made.
Good case for wire management, even an idiot like me can make a neat build with this thing! Highly recommend.
Great for lower standing builds! Would maybe go up to 700 just to future proof but its lasted me long enough :)
I love this keyboard to bits! I don't think I could play any games without it at this point! I'm so attached!
Has lasted me literally 8 years with no problems. I'm using it as I type this! I wouldn't recommend now but it was amazing for its time.
This is a great budget wireless gaming headset! Corsair so it can sync with my other corsair devices and 7.1 for that Call of Duty style sound whoring :D
