Description

So I upgraded the PC my father bought us years ago from an i3 3220, 4GB of RAM, GTX 650 ti to this ( there was an intermediate i5 3470 and 8 GB of RAM but no need to mention it) I thought about sharing it.

Part Reviews

CPU

Fantastic CPU and for the price its greate, cant reach its full potential since my RX570 isnot powerful enough. I cant get it over 3.9 Ghz though, don't know if its the CPU or motherboard.

Motherboard

Good looks for the price, with orange accents to ruin RGB lol. Has many good features like troubleshooting LEDs which helped me realize that I didn't connect my CPU 8-Pin from the PSU (Panic of the first boot). Can't set the CPU voltage manually though, only offset which I'm not familiar with, thats why I had to overclock with Ryzen master. But all in all good motherboard for the price. Can't get my ryzen 2600 beyond 3.9Ghz whatever voltage I push, not sure where is the problem.

Memory

Got the DDR4-3000 CL15 of this but I couldn't find it so added this instead lol. XMP 2.0 enabled with no problem. Good looking and I don't want RGB because my case has no window. Don't hate on RGB, you still have options without it.

Storage

Failed after upgrading CPU and Motherboard. I was lucky I was still in insurance, replaced it. Good speed though and very cheap.

Storage

Good speed, cheap price.

Keyboard

Good looks, good price, media keys, RGB lights (kind of, you don't control it via software and it doesn't save after rebooting). But comfortable and I like this combo.

Custom

Thick, comforts the palm. Large size, covers a lot of the desk. I don't know if I will be able to go back to normal size pads lol.

Custom

Good price, but I feel like SATA SSDs boots faster.

Custom

Quiet and moves a lot of air,not PWM but still I like it.

Custom

Easy to build in, has the needed space for my storage, good air flow, temps are good, easy cable management, doesn't have a PSU shroud but it closed so looks doesn't matter that much anyway.

Custom

Non-modular,cables are colored unfortunately. Gets the job done, I don't know a lot to write here, so I would say nothing special about it. Not sure if the overclocking limit of my CPU has anything to do with it.

I'm pretty sure it's the CPU's fault for not getting past 3.9; probably just lost the silicon lottery.

I thought that as well
