I use this machine for gaming, video editing, streaming, writing, my side work (pc repair) etc.
I am coming from an AMD FX-6300, and WHAT a difference! My old machine was the same except for CPU, RAM, and Motherboard. My next project is to get a new GPU, possibly RX 580 XTR by gigabyte, or VEGA, depending on price/performance. May even go to GTX 1070.
So hope you like it!
//EDIT: I have purchased a MSI GTX 1070ti TITANIUM, what a monster, it has brought this machine together!
Excellent price/performance! Gaming performance is awesome, and video editing is SOOO much better now, encoding time is almost minute for minute, have it Overclocked to 3.7 GHz with the stock wraith spire cooler, and temps are only a degree or two higher than stock! Very impressed with the CPU, and the beefy cooler it came with! I would recommend this to anyone over the 1600X!
I wish the motherboard companies could have had more time to get things ironed out, but great board, overclocks nicely, no issues!
//EDIT: After numerous updates, I am very pleased with this board!
Great RAM, still waiting on better compatibility, this is a SK Hynix kit, so dont expect to run at normal speeds, YET, I run this at 2666 MHz until AMD releases new micro code
//EDIT: Now runs at 3000MHz with correct latentcies, no trouble!
Fast, reliable, like most of Samsung's products. I have had it for a year, and I love it!
Another great product from Western Digital! I use this as a storage drive for my video recordings, games I don't play that often, etc.
Great price/performance! A little on the weaker end of the mid range GPU market, but serves me well for now, will probably wait for VEGA, if not, I will most likely purchase a RX 580 XTR by Gigabyte. Other than that this MSI card is very nice! Gave this card to my wife, as she as recently gotten into PC Gaming, purchased a MSI GTX 1070ti TITANIUM, and what an amazing card! this 470 is still running strong!
Excellent airflow! Excellent aesthetics! AMAZING price!
Its a Bronze PSU, not much else to say, it works
Very quiet, even ramped up when the CPU goes under load...Very nice looking, and the PWM chained wires are very nice
Had this bad boy for 4 years now, served me well, only downside, its not mechanical, and is starting to wear out, so Mechanical here I come!
One of the best mice I have ever used! It was a birthday present, and I immediately got rid of my Razer DeathAdder. This thing is FAR and AWAY better! Adjustable DPS, Sniper Button, Weights, build quality, and LOGITECH!
Decent Headset, good sound, just no surround
