Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

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.

Motherboard

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.

Case

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.

Power Supply

runs quiet came with tons of cables for hook ups.

Nice computer parts, but the bad cable management kind of ruins it for me. You should try to hide all your cables behind the motherboard tray or at least try to clean it up. Your 4+4 pin EPS cable definitely should not be touching the outside of CM Hyper 212 Evo CPU cooler like that.

had attempted during the build, the otherside of the case doesn't have much space to allow such thick cables to pass freely. I can try again now that I know things work fine. just the downside of the case that I didn't find in reviews.

Good build, solid parts, don't worry about messy cables, you can always fix them later.
