Description

I mainly use this computer for content creation, but I will do a bit of gaming if I decide to get a graphics card.

Part Reviews

CPU

Very good chip for the price, slightly outperforming the Ryzen 3 1200. Stays very cool even with its stock cooler idling at 23 degrees, hitting a max of 50 degrees under an AIDA 64 stress test. Scored a 604 cb on a Cinebench run, overall very happy with this purchase. Will do some gaming if I decide to purchase a graphics card.

Motherboard

Very well balanced board with a good set of features. Includes an SLI HB bridge inside the box if you decide to do SLI. The included RGB under the heatsink is a cool bonus. The only thing I can really complain about is the extremely thin IO shield. A decent board overall for the price.

For my first build, I am very excited to go for a build similar to this, especially with that i3-8100 which sounds very promising to me. The graphics card can wait as well.
