Description

Built a new PC for college (I needed an upgrade anyways). Form factor was a strong influence as was upgradability. Since I only had 2 ram slots I got a 1x16 so I can go to 32GB if needed. My first time with a SSD and I love the speed.

Part Reviews

CPU

A massive upgrade on my last CPU, and I can already tell when playing CS:GO

Motherboard

I love the dual ethernet and USB-C rear input! The WIFI antenna that comes with it is phenomenal!! Its magnetic and folds out to stand on its own if needed!

Storage

Works perfectly. I can't believe I had Windows on a 5400rpm HDD for so long and survived.

Video Card

Runs games as well as advertised!!!

Case

Loved the built in cable management and front input.

Great build! I like the parts combination. What kind of games are you playing on this rig? And what are your thoughts about the Lenovo monitor?
