ssd used for the operating system, made for playing modded games, and games with friends with high rez. runs great and setup is easy.
runs pretty quiet. wont notice sound til it goes to the top of its rpm range. came with it's own thermal paste and extra mounting hardware if you wanted to add a second fan for the tower radiator.
no problems with install or start up. all connections were labeled clearly on the board and in the manual. no hiccups. a good choice if youre on the fence with say a z270-E strix board. you'll save a good 20 bucks or so without Bluetooth or built in wifi.
looks great, hardware is great. motherboard standoffs pre installed and 4 extra were included. plenty of screws for everything. little snug though when trying to house a ge-force gtx 1070. not much wiggle room but it fits.
runs quiet came with tons of cables for hook ups.
