Upgraded three PCs in the last week, finally finished mine. I'm upgrading from an AMD FX 8350/GTX 770. I initially purchased a Cryorig R1 Universal and had troubles with it hitting the mobo heatsink, so I ended up getting an H115i - seriously awesome cooler, I've used AIOs before, but never in my personal build. The stock Corsair fans were very loud. I now have a push-pull with Noctua Redux 1200 PWM fans, temps stay quite low and its nearly silent. Since I put the radiator in the front, instead of crushing my PSU cables by moving the smaller HDD cage I opted to get a 2 5.25" to 3 3.5" adapter. I also ended up removing a 1TB HDD because tempts were a little high for my taste with three hard drives stacked on top of each other.
The EVGA Z170 K's bios gave me some issues, definitely not as seamless as an MSI or ASUS. I had to flash a newer bios to install Windows 10. Smooth sailing after that.
Overall very fast and extremely quiet build. I'm pretty happy with it. =)
Temp picture is running Prime95 and Furmark for an hour, actual usage is much, much lower. Not bad at all.
Blazing fast. Eons ahead of my old AMD FX 8350. Glad to have an i7 again. I haven't overclocked it yet, I'm not sure I will for a little while, its plenty fast as is.
Great cooler, keeps everything in the low 20's. The fans are functional, but insanely loud... I ended up replacing them. Also, the wire are a total pain. Doesn't affect performance, but meh....
Old standby. Works great, use it on CPUs, GPUs, laptops, etc.
I had a Classified E760 back when I had an i7 920, great board for its time, and having recently messed with newer ASUS and MSI bios, my expectations were high for EVGA. I was a bit disappointed, nothing fancy and flashy, but its extremely functional - exactly what you'd want from an overclocking board. I can't really ding it for that. However, I had to update my bios to install Windows 10? Something, somewhere was overlooked there.
Great ram, no stability issues, XMP set everything perfectly. The little red piece comes off, which is nice since my system is mostly black and grey.
My first SSD. Originally just had my OS, now it's dedicated to HDD caching. A bit slow for an SSD....
OS and a couple of games on here. Fast, no complaints. Will replace with an M.2 when prices go down.
Lots of space. Replaced a full 1TB drive with documents. No complaints so far, it's sharing a 60GB SSD cache drive.
Between my husband and I we've had five of these and only one had died in 8 years. Not bad at all. This one is sharing a 60GB cache SSD
I haven't really done anything intensive yet. Fallout 4 defaults to Ultra. Seems great so far
Two very minor complaints about this case. 1. The included fans are silent, but they also don't move very much air. 2. It's so easy to make the wiring look nice that I actually did a pretty sloppy job in the back. Sigh. I'll fix it later. =)
But really, bar none the best case I've had the pleasure of working with.
I love this PSU.
Required for DX12, or I'd be using W7. Not awful, but not great
Fantastic fans! I've never had a case full of Noctua fans (mostly due to the color) these were $14 each and PWM. Almost totally silent. Wish they came with the rubber dampeners that the others have....
I associate 80mm fans with Delta for some reason. Ie crazy loud. I can't hear this fan. It also keeps my hard drive cool just fine
Colors suck, but I'm just using it as a secondary, so not a big deal
Great monitor. I'd get a second if 4k wasn't of interest. Someday.....
I actually don't have this yet (it arrives Wednesday) but I do have a CMStorm Trigger with MX Browns and it's lovely. I've had it a few years with no issue. I decided to get this because I finally decided I'd like more than 6" for my mouse in my keyboard tray.... And also an excuse to get MX Blues. Will update this later
