Description

I made this to get me through college without having to buy ready-made computers over and over. With the amount of gaming I do the integrated graphics in the i5 are enough, so I got that over an AMD and will add a GPU if needed. Ram goes up to 32GB if I want. Micro-ATX. I did not get cut, fry something, or drown the CPU with paste. I did, however, place a SSD vertically since I didn't have a bay. Everything I've got is running well, better than expected too. Tower didn't have space in the backplate, and it had a top-mounted PSU... despite that, I really like it - USB3.0 and fans run quietly.

Everything is 7.6-7.9(max) in Windows Experience, minus the graphics (integrated) which are 6.5. Too lazy to do a Mark11 benchmark.

Were you able to get the side panel back on with that CPU cooler?

I guess the obvious question is what is the computer primarily used for? Gaming? Term Papers? Web surf, etc. . .

Everything appears to be solid. Really good ssd, though you might want to add cheap hard drive to store pics music and such on.

I would add a video card of some sort if you are gaming. Should make a big difference.
