Description

Bought and built my complete setup inbetween january and july of this year and I gotta say it was alot easier than what i was expecting for my first build. The R3 1200 works great for only being 100 dollars.

Ive had some dissapointments when it comes to crucial ram had to send back BOTH modules to get replaced in the first week because they would randomly crap out on me eventually got good sticks but will be buying more premium ram in the future as ryzen does better with good ram.

The GPU is all I could ask for 1080p gaming as it runs even the newest games (like BO4) at high settings without dropping below 60 frames

Case looks great with the hue+ and ive never loaded into rust so quickly in my life with the 970 evo... less than 20 seconds on average which is great considering before I hought it I loaded in after about 5 minutes of starring at assets

Overall pc runs well but needing more processing power for my next build so selling this one hopefully i'll have the next build out soon :D

Part Reviews

CPU

Great value for an amazing platform

Motherboard

Its lights are drowned out by my hue+ but that's ok it still looks amazing

Memory

Had to send multiple of these back finally got some that work

Storage

Got this for Windows didnt regret

Storage

Holds big files, loads'em good too

Video Card

Could be better for the price but definitely worth getting in a pinch large difference between 1050 and 1060

Case

Looks good mine came with a scratch but that's to be expected with these types of windows

Monitor

Looks great runs great

Keyboard

Love the feel of the keys on this boi lights arent too bad either

Mouse

Feels more like an extension of my hand than a mouse, very worth

Custom

Didnt really understand how long it was.... Goes all the way across my desk

Custom

Makes everything shine in all the right ways

Great looking build, feel like money could have been saved in places like keyboard, mouse, storage and RAM and put to better use such as GPU and CPU, but that is just me and my personal preference. Great build none the less.

Maybe you should have gotten a good 2x8 kit instead of two 1x8s. They don't always work with one another.

Strix mobos come with them. The big stickers are a bit flashy, but they come with round, fan stickers that are the bees knees.

Ronin, how do you like the Glaive? I purchased one and used it for a bit. Felt like a brick in my hand. I hated that when I lifted it to reset my mouse on my pad, it would slip out almost every time. It's kind of a straight design, whereas you have to hold tighter when resetting. At least that's what I've noticed. Picked up a G502 for cheaper and it's made a massive difference.

Nice build! Let me know if you decide to part ways with the processor (that is, if you're just getting rid of it alone). I may be interested in it.

Yeah it really depends on the type of hands you have, my friend has shorter fingers and has trouble when he came over and used the glaive. the g502 is really good tho and i'm not parting out thx for the offer tho

I have used them a million times because they're usually the cheapest decent ram at microcenter, and I have never had an issue with them. I think this is probably an exception.
