Description

Gaming has been beautiful on this machine. I had invested months of research into these parts and I am glad I did. There is nothing I could change that would make it better without increasing the cost. The setup itself is not completely finished, but it is fine for right now. I think a concern from some viewers would be something like, "That's not good to have your computer enclosed like that inside your desk"... I did worry about this I do admit. However, I have been getting very low temperatures in every game I've played. Somethings are a little messy in the desk right now and I do plan to fix it up.

Part Reviews

CPU

Fast and relatively cheap! Although you can overclock, I am not even sure you really have to as I get a steady 60+ frames on a CPU intensive game such as ARMA 3.

CPU Cooler

Been getting exceptionally cool temps! Not that loud, also!

Motherboard

Nice UEFI/BIOS. Gets the job done and done well.

Memory

Maybe a little overkill, but if you have the money, it's well worth it.

Storage

You'd be surprised how fast SSD storage runs out. So use your space wisely! Super fast and definitely worth the money.

Storage

Generous storage! Fantastic! I love this and It has been holding everything great so far.

Video Card

So awesome.... Nothing else to say.

Case

Nice size and very nice looking. A little snug to build in, though. Regardless, it does the job!

Power Supply

POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRR! Been great so far. Does the job.

Monitor

Honestly a very beautiful monitor. One thing I do want to point out is that it did not come with a Dual-Link DVI-D cable and without it, it wouldn't allow me to access 144hz. So that was another 20 bucks. This might not happen to you, but just letting future buyers know in advance.

From pic 2, I can already tell you have your cooler fan on the wrong side. Switch it over to the right side of the cooler above the ram. Otherwise, +1
