Description

No Problems... was a little worried about the MOBO but handling perfectly.

CPU comfortably at 3.95 with no over voltage - Temps at 58 full ADA load GPU comfortably at 1515 Core clock and 2175 Memory, slight over voltage (AB at +12) temps 68-70 full load

Running Division and other AAA titles at 1440p High to ultra 50-100 fps depending...

great build, fun and no issues.

Added a few additional fans at the top for ventilation. I removed the HDD metal slots in the front and placed one of the case fans at the bottom blowing air up... Thank you Fractal for allow that with screen mesh! Front AOI 240mm CPU cooler bringing air in from the outside and three fans (2 on top & rear) blowing out.

all in all this little guy is a beast and will do me well for 1440p high settings for the next few years... i'll have better GPU options by then and plan to add a 1TB SSD. All in all for the price i actually paid this little guy is VERY quick with only a GPU and SSD addition required in the next 2-3 years if keeping up with AAA titles.

Actual purchase price of components grand total with monitor was around $1,200 which i'm pretty happy with!

Does the cooler include a fan splitter? And very nice cable management but could improve with cable combs.

Yes it did and thanks, my first build and I didn't know what those were called until just now, will look for some.

Nice looking build!

Why were you worried about the motherboard?

Thanks and yes. That's the only part I would have changed looking back but finding a good m board was difficult at the time I was building. I will say this little board is doing great

But why would you have changed the motherboard? What is it you don't like about this one?

I would have liked another 4 pin fan connection and the temperature can increase when stimulating full strain mode but overall I am very happy with the board, being rather picky actually.

Why does it look like the GPU is sagging? Thinking of buying this card for another build but wouldn't want it to sag.
