Description

To start this build is a beast for my first build ever and I love it. I got some very good deals (especially with that NVME ssd) but was grinding for a strait 3 months to make this build happen and to see it come to reality is really satisfying. I may add storage in the future either a 1tb HDD or a 500gb SSD please let me know what i should do.

Part Reviews

CPU

Nice cpu 6 cores 12 threads and a cpu cooler for $160 you cant beat it. I want to do more testing in the future but for now i will keep it on those stock settings.

Motherboard

Nice board and rather cheap only problem was that i cant find the xmp settings. aesthetically pleasing and easy to work with

Memory

Nice a little overpriced and very nice rgb colors. I originally was given a faulty memory pack by amazon but i got my replacement pack with in 2 days of me realizing that they were faulty.

Storage

an absolute steal at this price point very fast and hold more than i thought it would overall great product.

Video Card

An absolute beast of a card I originally purchased the regular addition (not amp extreme) but amazon sent me the more expensive edition so i will take it. It is a very large 2 slot designed card and brings lots of power while keeping temps really low. Highest temp i have seen under load so far is 70C

Case

Very easy to build in and had lots of cable management tool such as zipties, tie down points and even straps. Very easy to work with and looks extremely nice with the included RGB strip.

Power Supply

nice power supply. Honestly didn't think that i would like semi modular but I really like this supply.

Keyboard

RGB looks amazing on this keyboard and the keys are so satisfying and are a little loud but not as loud as mechanical. Didnt think at first that i would like it but i love it now and dont think i would settle for anything else.

Mouse

very nice mouse and feels amazing and has RGB so why not.

180 bucks for a 60hz monitor? you might as well just pay 30 more for 144hz

Looks pretty good! Like someone else said, I would sell that Samsung monitor in favor of one of the cheaper MSI 144Hz monitors.

Was the monitor the same price as the non freesync variant? SSD prices have been dropping so you can score a generic 500GB one for 60$, or a well know brand for 70-80$. If you decide on HDD I would recommend a 2TB simply cause they are normally 15-30% more for twice the storage of a 1TB. Looks good though.

I do not know about the monitor got it originally for console gaming and am thinking of upgrading but that may be further down the line. I believe the non freesync variant goes for like $150 so i dont know

Well if you liked the design over others, or it was the cheapest in your range, then can't really complain against the choice. The next time you upgrade, you could decide to grab an amd GPU to take advantage of the freesync. G-sync monitors are expensive, but Nvidia still has a hold on the medium to upper end cards. Edit: just noticed the console gaming bit, if it's old monitor being reused I definitely have no complaints.

What is the fps rate

XMP is labeled D.O.C.P. in Asus UEFI Bios. At least mine was. Turned it on and it instantly upped my RAM to 3200MHz.

Hey I saw you saying that you couldn't find xmp in bios, on amd motherboards look for the D.O.C.P overclocking profile instead, it's the same thing

This is a great build! i only see two things i would change but, the monitor problem was already mentioned.

The SSD to me would not be enough storage so, i would get a Seagate or a Western Digital hard drive (1TB)

Love this build :D
