I just got my 2nd monitor and finished my build on 7/24/19
To start off, I am a sucker for RGB, and will happily overpay for it, as I will spend many years enjoying the colors as I continue to upgrade my CPU/GPU. This aesthetics of this build was inspired by the Corsair Vengeance 5189 (a $2800 PC)
This was my first complete build and I am very happy with it. Went from a a PC with i5-3330 and RX 570 that someone else built, and am loving the performance upgrade. I mainly use it to play RPG games and watch movies and stuff. Because I dont do competitive gaming, I decided to go with the cheaper ASRock B365M motherboard and i5 9400F CPU, since I dont plan on overclocking the CPU or RAM. I plan on saving up to upgrade CPU/GPU when Intel's 10th gen arrives. I have however slightly overclocked my GPU with a boost that goes to 1917MHz. The 7 case fans are loud at times when they are running full speed, however they keep the case nice and cool.
This cpu works great for what I use it for. I can have several tabs open, youtube playing, discord, and my game going all at once without pushing over 50% load.
Overkill for my system, but my old fan wouldnt fit in my new case. The RGB alone had me sold. Keeps my 9400F under 45C even under load.
Its ok I guess. Nothing special. Really cheap and works well. Does everything a motherboard should. Easy to work bio, got my RAM to its 2666 easily. M.2 slot works well.
Instantly saw a difference using this for my OS. Super fast booting, and makes my games load crazy fast.
Love this graphics card. The fans and heatsink are great quality and keep the card nice and cool. Was easily able to push boost past 1900, and runs my games at 1080 between 80-144fps on max settings. The RGB are pretty, but unless you have your computer/GPU up high you wont notice it much.
Love this thing. Can adjust speeds of any connect corsair fans, adjust individual RGB, get temperature readings from various spots (I have one in my separate wire area) and stops wire clutter by allowing you to plug in usb items (lighting node pro, H100i liquid cooling) to it instead of motherboard.
