CPU: Was able to get 4.26ghz with just XFR. It's just awesome in BOINC and gaming. 15076 passmark score
Cooler: I wanted something a little different and that kind of blends in with the build. Also I really like how the fans plug into the rad.
Mobo: It's a great little board for what it is. It may be cheap there, but it was at the top end of my budget here in Canada. My main gripe about it is the lack of fan headers. The OC screen is pretty good too. Please turn off "gaming boost"
Ram: Rampant price gouging during the great mining craze. Stable OC 2933mhz.
Storage: Salvaged from my old rig. The Evo is really fast and dependable The HDD as slow as it is is still usable in gaming.
Case: I had my eye on this case for a long time now. The TG really makes it feel like a premium showpiece. I also really like the cable management options and the PSU shroud. I'm not fond of the front panel being a pain to get off though. (needle nose pliers)
PSU: I really am impressed with it. Also came with a pretty cool bag. Cool, quiet, no issues. Even with the old r9 Fury I had.
GPU: It was the cheapest at the time of purchase in this weird crypto craze. I still don't understand why GPU components are sold in Canada at higher prices that the US.
Tears up the BOINC applications and works like a charm in games.
Pros: I like its simplistic design, it keeps temps super cool as well, automatic mode, fans plug into the radiator so you can hide the mess
Cons: The fans are noticeable if you're overclocking.
It's great for the price, the UEFI is decent, but it has 2 fan headers. Other than that I really can't complain about it. It also has some RGB for ambiance.
Considering ram prices right now it was the cheapes I could find that matches my color theme. RAM shouldn't cost more than your CPU.
Was the cheapest card at the time in April. Maybe next time GPU prices won't be nuts.
