Description

After about a year of use and about half of that with a very light over clock to the A10-9700, I can say that it is pretty reliable. I use it to play games on medium if not low settings between 60-30 fps. I did have a issue with the motherboard not having enough ports to plug in all my fans (4 including CPU) so I had to get a splitter adapter for it. The only other issue I had is that after installing all the drivers and updating the motherboard BIOS Windows didn't recognize the speakers on the monitor through HDMI on start up but after putting it in to sleep mode and then awaking it up it would recognize it, so I just got some speakers aside. But aside from those two things and honesty the case looking pretty cheap, it ended up being a pretty good build for my needs and budget. I found that it was a really entertaining experience building this PC and will definitely recommend building your own rig then buying a pre-build.

The good thing is you can upgrade to a ryzen for next to nothing and get some great performance

Never thought I'd see someone using an A10 on an AM4 board, but great build anyways!

there are some things that i really like about the build and there are some things that do ruffle my feathers a little bit. I understand why you went with the a10-9700. Its powerful enough to play Monster hunter world at 720p lowest settings at 30fps. Its an "okay" value for a chip. The rest of the build seems fine. b350 board supports overclocking, 16gb of ram in dual channel is good, case with fine airflow and decent power supply, but the gpu is overpriced. about a year ago rx 470's were going for the same price as that card and it would offer way more performance. Im glad it does what you want it to do, but there are things i definatley would have done differently.
