I am a mechanical engineering student who also likes to game. I put a lot of research into what I would need in a computer. I wanted a computer that would handle solidworks but would also let me play games. I found out that solidworks was cpu and RAM heavy but not as gpu heavy unless I were to run a couple thousand dollar gpu. Everything works better than expected. My rendering times are great with even just a ryzen 5. I also get 70+ fps on fortnite. Everything went together really well. Jayztwocents has a build that is pretty similar to mine so I used his video as instruction.
I love this cpu. I run heavy programs such as Solidworks and I have never seen the cpu spike above 30% load. I have not tried to OC it but the temps with the stock fan are really good.
Great MOBO. The BIOS was easy to use for a first timer. It was great to build with. I have not had any issues except my RAM wasn't completely compatible. Easy to OC and change the settings.
It was on sale so I bought it. That was the only reason I chose this over G-Skill and other brands. I couldn't get it to 3000 MHz. It's running at 2800 right now. I think it's compatibility issues with ryzen though. Other than that I haven't had a problem with it.
I bought this as it was the same price as a SSD of the same storage. I wanted it mainly because I could put it on my mobo without having to run cables. I use it as a boot drive and my boot times are roughly 6 seconds.
Great GPU. I haven't had any issues with it. I only wanted it to run 1080p at 60fps and it's done that on every game I've tried.
This is a great case to build in. It is professional but also modern. There is space for six fans and even supports water cooling. I wish it came with a rear fan but for the price I couldn't complain. It was easy to work in and was completely tool-less. My only complaint would be the space for cable management. I struggled a bit to get all my cables to fit in the back panel and for it to shut easily. It was my first build so that might just be my lack of experience.
Great PSU. I haven't had any problems with it. It's simple and does the job.
