Description

The machine is used for gaming, video editing and basic college tasks. I search for a black and red look and I wasn't dissapointed with the results. The parts arrived from the US except the CPU which I bought in my country. The motherboard fit perfectly and the screws of the case where pretty useful since they got a wheel thing that enables easy unscrewing. The graphic card, PSU and CPU fit perfectly too. The cable management was easy thanks to the case back panel which had a room for all the cables.

The boot was successful at the first time and Windows 10 was installed. The only "problem" I had was that the drivers of the motherboard LAN came in a CD and I didn't had a CD burner. And since no WiFi in the build I didn't had access to the internet. However in another computer I access the webpage and downloaded the driver, that I installed in the build through a USB Flash drive.

Part Reviews

CPU

Not the best price - performance ratio but it do the job. I use it mostly for gaming and video editing and it has been able to work pretty well on those occasions

Motherboard

Great motherboard. It has some neat features like fast charging and killer network. It also has a great design for those interested in building a good looking PC.

Memory

Great performance, and since now I have had no problems at all. Good looking too.

Video Card

Great for any kind of stuff including gaming. It has handled all gamesI throw at it and it keeps cool in most of those situations. Looks amazing with a black/red motherboard and it isn't noisy at all

Case

The best part of my PC build. Great price for those features, it has cable management, good quality trays and a separate compartment to hide all those PSU cables. It's compact and good looking a and looks great in other colors too.
