Hi everyone! Since 2014, I have been owning a MacBook Pro, which was one great laptop, although the thermal throttling, 6000rpm fans, overheating, lack of good value, are all effective on a 1600$ laptop.
macOS is minimal and very easy to navigate for me, but it’s very annoying at times and especially old models tends to freeze on me... Very limited programming software and game functionality (obv). so
Building took 6-8 hours all together, and honestly pretty easy! (if you have patience). Problems I went into were a stripped screw on my cpu cooler bracket that you’re supposed to remove, so took hours to get out eventually giving up and going to the PC store nearest to me and getting a bigger head screwdriver! The hardest part was putting the motherboard inside the case, because IO shield had cushion and it was stopping the mobo from aligning into the standoffs. I booted first time with no errors, and I felt so relived.
I will be using my build for video editing, mostly gaming, mostly coding/emulator testing, and similar purposes!
**future upgrades - replace cooler with Cryorig M9A - replace GPU with RTX 2060/2070
benchmarks - fortnite (80 FPS all epic settings) - rocket league (200 fps all settings max) - CSGO (200+ fps all max) **
overall a really good PC imo, it's just the GPU I might want to upgrade later, and the CPU cooler for better thermals for OCing to 3.7+.
And again, thank you so much PCPartPicker community.
