My intention with this PC is do some FPS/RPG MMO type games. Eventually I will try to learn and tackle the whole streaming thing.
What worked well: -Used the Arctic thermal paste rather than what came on the processor -Having a friend over to help hold parts into place while screwing in the motherboard/liquid cooling unit -Having someone over to make margaritas while building -using bowls for parts for different components
Problems: -Couldn't get video card to recognize the monitor upon first start-up -After fiddling with power to the GPU it came on -OS would crash after about 2 hours of gaming -After re-installing the OS this seems to have worked (not a single crash since!) -Still cannot figure out how to get the RGB to work with the Team T-Force SSD
So far, so good. Had to figure out the clamps for an AMD installation, but that was the only hang-up. It slid right into the motherboard, no need to clip or anything.
This was real hard to mount. I definitely needed another person to help hold it while screwing it into place. The RGB isn't fully custom either, so you're really stuck with the presets. I think it keeps my CPU cool, though?
Solid motherboard, even with beating it up on my first build it didn't break. I definitely needed to look at the diagram when plugging things in a couple of times.
It works and looks amazing! Plus real easy to install.
Amazing video card, I also got a free copy of Battlefield V with it! Real easy to install and keep up to date with the software you can get from Nvidia's website.
This tower is awesome. Fully custom and very durable. I gave it beating while I was building and it still works!
Talk about all the power and cables you will ever need. There seems to be very little space when running the cables, but it's solid.
They're just real pretty.
Beautiful monitor for my budget.
