+ Total (Canada):
I built this to change my color theme and also upgrade from my 2013 build: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/ZJ6hP6
CPU: It's running smooth at 4.25ghz. It's just awesome in BOINC and gaming
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, my main gripe about it is the lack of fan headers.
Ram: It does a great job, I just wish the prices weren't so crazy high.
Storage: Salvaged from my old rig. The Evo is really fast and dependable
Case: I had my eye on this case for a long time now. It's like having a little Define R5. 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.
PSU: I really am impressed with it. Also came with a pretty cool bag.
GPU: It was the cheapest at the time of purchase in this weird crypto craze. Also love how Canada taxes the snot out of computer components. (not really) But yeah. It's got some RGB and the ugly orange isn't noticable unless you're looking up at the case. Runs full load at about. 68C
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.
