When I'm sitting on my couch in front of a 50" plasma TV, I get to watch streamed & downloaded videos & game @ 1080p. When I stand at the bar-height table I'm using for a stand up desk, I game at 2560x1600 and fart around on the web.
This started with a G3258 and an R9 285 and has been upgraded/sidegraded to this. I just posted it a couple of weeks ago because I was sure I was done messing with it but the LEPA Aquachanger 120 was a better aesthetic match for another build. So same as last time, but 5C cooler under load thanks to the Seidon.
I'm stable @ 4.3GHz @ 1.161V.
Easy to mount, performs OK.
Works fine. I, however, broke the USB 3.0 header.
I purchased these sticks at the peak of RAM prices last December. Pretty though.
SSD prices have fallen through the floor since I got this. I'm streaming more than I'm downloading these days, I wonder if I'll buy another mechanical drive again?
I got the blower style because of the ITX case but I'm still getting thermal throttling. I can get 60FPS at 2560x1600 on GTAV if I keep MSAA to x2.
Fits quite a bit for its size. I especially like the HDD trays that can also hold an SSD at the same time.
It's quieter than the 200mm Thermaltake fan that comes with the case.
Used price without monitor stand. The anti-glare coating is noticeable against light backgrounds but not an issue during gaming or video watching. 30" of 1440p/1600p at 18" isn't appreciably different (to my almost-40-year-old-eyes) to 50" of 1080p at 72".
This is my second experience with a mechanical keyboard, and I like these browns much more than the blues I have in an Adesso at work.
I'm no audiophile but they sound fine to me.
