Description

I've been wanting to build a computer for about 4 years now, but I had like no money, so after working a summer job I got enough to buy this thing. It's primarily designed for gaming, but occasionally is used as a light workstation. So far it runs most games very smoothly and stays pretty cool. Bought some of the higher-end stuff for relatively painless future upgrading. Only thing I might recommend is a higher storage and 1070 if you have a lot of AAA games, although it's not something I personally need atm.

Part Reviews

CPU

No problems whatsoever and it goes fast for the right price

CPU Cooler

Feels a little cheap, but definitely still looks good and functions great so far. For the price I believe there is no better option.

Motherboard

Bios is pretty good, solid feeling cool looking board, would recommend.

Memory

Lots of ram that's fast and not ridiculously priced.

Video Card

1080p smasher, works really well at 100+ fps for most games and some tweaking can handle AAA at 60 fps

Case

Solid case, comes with 2 fans and plenty of room for drives and other case fans. Something maybe bad is the leds and the plastic construction but I'm ok with it and it looks good. Also cable management is kinda a pain as there is not much up and around room so if your into that it might be an issue.

Monitor

Really good monitor for its price, only problem is it shipped with a few stuck pixels, but this may not be indicative of all monitors

Keyboard

Works very well for the price, definitely not the same as a mechanical, but feels surprisingly good for a membrane. Colors are kinda cool, helps to see in low light.

Headphones

For the price, great functionality, comfortable, and good sound at least for my untrained ears.

I have a question, i'm getting the same motherboard along with the CPU and i was wondering if you had to do a motherboard bios update?

PAPA_KIWI 1 point 26 months ago

Its Mediocre Some Parts are really well done but others are not

Trash_lord submitter 1 Build 1 point 26 months ago

Yeah I was just kinda trying to get it to boot when I built it. Any suggestions to fix it?

PAPA_KIWI 1 point 26 months ago

Some Cable Ties (Velcro Straps work better) try to keep everything by keeping it near the PSU.

Yrathlazair 1 point 26 months ago

When building with this motherboard and cpu the website advices that an update may be necessary. Was this an issue in any way?

Trash_lord submitter 1 Build 1 point 26 months ago

Not a big problem, I did have to use my friend's 6600 to update the bios though. if you don't have a spare skylake lying around I would either get a cheap one and re sell it or just get a 270. I would still recommend this board though.
