Description

This build is a comp I built a year ago, I just did a few changes.

Decided to go ahead and get the case i wish i had gotten before, the Genome II. That also meant going from a 240mm Aio to a 360mm Aio. I couldn't find the fans I had used before, so I got a new batch of 6 that i needed. I added 2x4gb ram. just to fill out the slots and to help cope with the system on the rare occasions eating nearly all of the previous 16gb ram. The Genome II case also included a bracket and pcie extension to mount the GPU vert, which was a nice bonus for aesthetic.

I have a feeling once I get a better GPU I'm going to be just fine for a while,

Part Reviews

Motherboard

the ambient light setup is really nice.

Storage

This has only caused me one issue, the rare times I needed to get into Bios, it booted up FAR too fast for me to get in. That's not really a problem though is it?

Video Card

Seems to hit its limit quickly on some games, I think it's more due to a lack of power since it draws power from the mobo and not from a cable.

Power Supply

Only thing I can say negative about this is just being petty. That would be I wish EVGA made colored cable packs for it.

Monitor

Perfect size, but speakers are on the bleh side of sound.

Keyboard

Cheap, efficient, and durable. I'd probably just get another of this same keyboard, if i ever did break this one.

Mouse

Cheap, but works well for me.

Headphones

Just perfect.

Other

Overall amazing, a few issues though. First the liquid in the integrated cooling system is very visible as green through the tube on the cpu block Second the block's light is white which is fine since my build is blue and white Third wire management felt both easy and a pain all at once. easy because it felt thought out up until the fans on the front of the case, that big open area made it annoying to try to keep the cables from hanging in mid air to ruin the look.

Dang Son, get yourself a nice 6gb 1060 or a 1070 and youll be set for a while! +1 for Deepcool!

I would also suggest getting the identical 3200MHz kit because there might be an issue with timings or the speeds, as well being two entirely different memory brands.

A 1070 is my next plan for exactly that reason. Though, if what my friend says is true, I might hold out till later this year for the next gen GPUs I keep hearing might be dropping.

I would recommend waiting a bit, at least until GPU prices drop down to a somewhat reasonable price. That 1050ti Should be enough to rock most games at until then.
