Description

This computer is gonna be used as my main workstation and some light gaming. My cable management skills are non-existent so spaghetti game insane.

Setup was a breeze with the minor hiccup installing the wraith spire :P

Not much to say except that it's fast, but I have had some trouble overclocking the memory to 3200 even though the xmp profile said it's gucci.

On top of all that though, this bad boy can be very mobile. My friends make fun of the case cuz it be lookin like a milk crate, but this thing is a beast of a case. For people like me who are noobs at cable management, the spaghetti game is well hidden as there aren't any windows at the side.

They really weren't lying when they said that this is high airflow :P

I hope you guys enjoy :)

Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing processor that meets all of my needs! Overclocks well!

Motherboard

Great motherboard; however, I've been having trouble getting my memory to 3200 despite activating the xmp profile. Although, not too big of an issue.

Storage

Fast af and fits my needs well. Boot is pretty much instantaneous and I'm a happy camper :')

Storage

Just your regular old hard drive and it works!

Case

Love the case and love the mobility! This might be the case I'll be staying with for all, if not all of my builds!

Power Supply

Great PSU! 620w is great, but I highly recommend going fully modular if you can.

Optical Drive

An optical drive that does its job. Cheap af open box at microcenter.

Case Fan

big red fan that exhausts air.

Case Fan

Another medium sized fan that can move some serious air

Case Fan

medium sized fan that pushes in air.

Case Fan

Does its job

Fan Controller

Great fan hub! Handles all my fans well, but the power button is impossible to press!

Keyboard

This has been a really great keyboard. I didn't want mechanical; however, wanted enough macros for the games that I played.

Mouse

Great mouse for everyday use and enough macros for a casual gamer as myself.
