I use the pc mostly for gaming but i also use it for some school work. Overall everything worked well. Everything went pretty smoothly i just had to apply it a second time because i installed the heatsink the wrong way. It was very fun to build and went very smoothly

Part Reviews


Great entry intel core i5, got it really cheap and am planning to upgrade later but is great for what i need right now.

CPU Cooler

I think this is the best cooler under 50 dollars. Keeps my cpu really cool and is also really quiet.


Good motherboard but probably a better one for the same price. I like the color scheme and has all the ports i need. con is they had poor placement for the usb 3.0 port because my graphics card is blocking it. Other than that i have no complaints


Great cheap ram for 8 gb does what it needs to do.

Video Card

Great graphics card havent been playing to many hard core games but I was playing sniper 2 and it was staying in the 90s at the highest settings. I like how the fans dont spin on until it hits a certain degree. I also really like the back-plate making it stronger. I also got it for an amazing price


Really nice case and easy to work in with tons of cable loops and holes to put cables through. It comes with 3 120 mm in the front and 1 140 in the back. It fits everything perfectly and i like how i could remove all the hard drive cages except one and the it has a spot for the ssd in the front so you can show it off. I also like how it hides the power supply. It has lights in the back to also illuminate the io ports and other card ports you have. The only con is that the thick foam really constricts the airflow in the front. Overall it is a really nice case.

Power Supply

Nice power supply and does its job. It has all the necessary cords attached to the power supply already but it has other connectors for more if necessary. I overall like the power supply and went a little overboard and could've used a 750. It makes very little noise and i can not hear it.

Operating System

Good os but lots of privacy issues.


Great monitor for the price, no dead pixels and lots of screen settings. This monitor fits perfectly on my desk

The sag kills me internally. ;-;

bubba969 submitter 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

Any tips or is there a way to fix it? Just got some fishing line going to try and do something I will take a picture when im done

Huckerman 1 point 40 months ago

Puget Systems has a GPU Brace for like 14 dollars that works wonders for sagging gpus. It also looks good aesthetically too. https://www.pugetsystems.com/store/item.php?cat=Case+Mods&id=10588&com=d41d8cd9

did you run into any ram clearance issues with the cryorig h5?

bubba969 submitter 1 Build 2 points 37 months ago

Sorry for the late response but It looks like if I install ram into my 2 other slots the fan is blocking one of them so I can't upgrade but I don't know for sure

joshsc7 1 point 37 months ago

ah ok, thanks for getting back to me. I'm thinking of getting one myself - the only reason why i'm asking. If you do upgrade I wouldn't mind knowing how you faired.

Are you going to attempt to overclock with that non k CPU?

HTTPRO 3 Builds 2 points 40 months ago

You can't overclock that...its locked. Maybe he'd upgrade to a 4790K/5775C later down the line and use Z97+Cooler to use.

cpenland 2 Builds -1 points 40 months ago

To say you cant is incorrect.

bubba969 submitter 1 Build 0 points 40 months ago

I might in a few weeks i want to see how well it does but i certainly have the cooler for it. I know i can overclock to around 3.7

vagabond139 5 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

You can't overclock at all, you would need a unlocked cpu.

cpenland 2 Builds 0 points 40 months ago

Whoops for some reason i thought he had a i5 6500, he still can overclock slightly by 100-200mhz or so, if he wanted not really worth though from what ive read.

bubba969 submitter 1 Build 0 points 40 months ago

Hey so i downloaded cpu id and i looked at my core clocks and i guess its already overclocked to between 3.5 and 3.7 ghz

I would recommend a bigger power supply like 800, my thing is i take the total wattage and times it by 1.5, why not look for black monitors also the silver doesnt really seem to go with your color scheme. are you going to overclock at all?

SP3CT3R_7 1 point 40 months ago

Probably going to overlook doing a custom carbon fiber on my monitor and I'm going with a 750 Watt and 32GB of RAM plus an extra 2TB of storage (altoghter 4TB).

bubba969 submitter 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

nice sounds like a solid build. Send me a link when you built it or need any help

SP3CT3R_7 1 point 40 months ago

Thanks man! Also, do you think I should get some custom sleeving? If so, where should I get it from?

SP3CT3R_7 1 point 40 months ago

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Lk6Dt6 This is the new partlist. I chnaged the RAM (dad didn't think 16GB was enough xD) and I found a slightly larger, more fast monitor and get this-it's black! I also got a 750W EVGA fully modular PSU, so I you think I should get custom sleeving, then I will. Anyway, I would just like some more feedback before I order everything. Thanks!

bubba969 submitter 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

I say 16 gb is way more than enough for anything you do nowadays mad just upgrade to another 16 gb in a couple years if you need too. The cables are already fully black so not unless you want special red cables or anything like that. Other than that I think it looks really good. What are you doing with it gaming or what?

SP3CT3R_7 1 point 40 months ago

wrong link xD try this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/wLshCJ
