Description

Despite the actual title, this is my first build. Received it maybe two months ago and have installed some (6) external RGB fans after heating became a little issue. However, there have been no hiccups with setting up the computer and has worked amazingly throughout its short period with me and I hope to add some improvments here and there :)

CPU The CPU works amazingly and I haven't noticed any performance drops. Heating was a little issue, with temperatures reaching 60oC which was a little high. Other than that, the stock CPU is amazing and took no time to install. Resting temp after fans: ~35oC Temp under high load: ~55-60oC

May try water cooling lol

Motherboard Nice motherboard, don't really know how it compares to others however its a sturdy thing and has easy access ports (especially for VR).

Memory These bad boys work very well, don't think you need more than 16GB of RAM. Works perfectly however would have liked some RGB on them but performance is amazing.

Storage SSD- oh man you just need an SSD in any computer build honestly. Startup takes no longer than 10 seconds and is fast performing for any games I play. 500GB is a perfect size however no harm in larger ones.

HD- man this thing is big and a little noisy when playing some games on it however thats probably only noticeable because the whole set up is dead quiet. Very useful having such a large storage and was easy to install.

Video Card Man this thing can run games. No lag in VR games such as beat saber or Onward and temperatures stay low (~33oC at rest, ~50oC during load). Easy to install and looks cool lol

Case This thing is massive and beautiful, like a plus sized model if you're into that. Easy cable management and lots of ventilation + with room for water cooling which is probably what I'll upgrade to. Lots of spare parts and very easy to build. Love it.

PSU It supplies power and is good. I like it.

Overall

An amazing gaming computer at a slightly high budget, it runs games amazing (PUBG, Onward, Hunt: Showdown etc) with 60fps on high-ultra. Good first build :)

that third "0" is suppose to be a "o" for degrees.

Hey, can I roast my marshmallows on your card? You said it runs around ~330C and ~500C, perfect for marshmallows.

Haha, didn’t know how to use superscript. Those are ‘o’s rather than ‘0’s.

Build looks great. If the build was mine I would have went with n NZXT case. But that is just me for some reason I really how clean their cases are. Great build for a great price +1

I have a question on a build like this how many frames would you get on rainbow six siege. I am new to all of this and I am trying to build a budgeted (sort of) gaming pc that has a good frame rate but I know nothing about this stuff lol

Good question :) I was looking into a budget build and I would recommend either the AMD or Intel budget build guide which should be on the completed builds. I used the AMD build as a template and built it up. This computer runs rainbow easily over 60fps on high settings and the limiting factor for performance is my internet.

Try going through the completed builds and taking one you like and was used for the same things you want, that may help

Build looks very nice, congratulations! But how is the 1070 with you? Currently the thing im thinking about the most in terms of which part i should get is the Graphics Card. I thought I would get a 170 Ti when it is on sale but if this card is great i might get it when it is on sals and save a few hundred bucks.

By the way since you want RGB on the RAM, you could have gotten the G. Skill Trident Z RGB 2×8 3200 sticks for just 15 bucks more than the ones you have.

No they are actually for 35 bucks more not 15
