For starters, this build is completely unnecessary for my uses today but I decided to make it anyway to future-proof my life as in a year or so I will be doing A great deal of digital work. At the current moment I use it for gaming and rendering school in the form of videos.
Basic rundown: I saw the current RGB trend going on and decided to jump on the hype train, but living in Australia poses some difficulties in doing this. Firstly, most of my parts are slightly overpriced and for my Aussie friends out there I recommend you look around every store as especially in Australia where part stocks are almost always low and prices fluctuate very often, and secondly, if you have access to a car, please actually drive down to stores as you can save a lot of money from the shipping prices posed by our so called couriers.
For any of you wondering "Gee LeFunny that's a lot of RGB how are the cables?" ,which you probably won't , but I'll tell you anyway. The cable management in the back of the case is atrocious as the side panel that hides all that spaghetti has very little headroom, so make sure you have LOTS cable ties handy.
Besides that the Rest is great, the front LED is flawless, but here is a piece of advice from ol' LeFunny, Do not plug in both of the RGB Plugs from the case IO, firstly it makes it have 3 colors only and secondly it gives off this terrible screech. Use the RGB extension that came with your motherboard to plug only one RGB Header, preferably the bottom one.
Enough talk, now onto the pictures, Oh and by the way don't mind the horrendous cable management as I did not have a cable hanger available at the time and you might see a little network card in there, I will no longer be using that as that was a 802.11n card that I swapped for the motherboard's 802.11ac. Oh! And one more thing, the Asus antenna for Wifi looks kinda Ugly so try to hide it away, and not do what I did.
Great Cpu, you can't say otherwise; but the low stocks give it a premium feel, at the premium cost of up to 150 Aud, or 134 Usd over the MSRP . Besides that, its a great overclocker, as long as you get rid of that toothpaste they put on the heat spreader, if you want to void the warranty. I have not delidded and are not planning to any time soon.
Great cooler with simple installation, slap some HD120s on it and you are for the RGB races. It's keeping my CPU under 60 degrees when video rendering.
It's proven it can do some real work, it't a great compound, but I would reccomend others over it. It keeps a constant 62 degrees or lower during rendering tasks.
Amazing motherboard! The Rgb lights look better in person than in pictures trust me, and it's built in wifi is even better than some specialised WiFi Cards' ! It does come at a cost however, at the premium cost of 360+ Aud.
"You will never need 32 gigabytes under normal circumstances, it's plain overkill." O R S O T H E Y S A I D RGB RAM? Completely sensible in all quantities. No matter what.
Acts as a great boot drive, when you see all those great revies on "my windows booted in 1 second omg wow lol XD 1!!1! [gone wrong]" That does not do justice to how fast this thing is. Windows is no match for this drive, give it an actual challenge.
Possibly the best mouse on the market, the included weights in this nice little case make the mouse costomizable and the Sniper button is better than the M65's because it is black and unlike the M65 you won't see the ugly scars that are made when the red paint gets scraped off, it is not painted. The sensor is great for customizability as it can go to all sesitivities all the way up to 12000.
They are basic Speakers, no more context, I chose then for some basic Cinema capability as I will be mainly using my Void Headset. I give it a 5 star because logitech themselves told me it's a really basic set of speakers for when the rest of your Pc has eaten your country's economy.
