Wireless Network Adapter
Funnily enough this all started because I decided to sell my old monitors to ascend to ultrawide and before I knew it, I've finished accumulating all the components in a little bit less than a month (luckily due to various sales/Prime Day/etc).
This is my 2nd build with my 1st being a budget Mini-ITX machine with i5 6500 & a GTX 1060. After finishing it, I realized that bigger is indeed better since I had so much struggle as a first timer fitting everything in such a small footprint. I realized that it was fine for me sacrifice some performance for RGB/lighting to fit the aesthetic that I was going for with the monitor. So all said and done, this is definitely a fitting upgrade to my previous build. I will mostly be gaming with splash of Lightroom/Photoshop here and there, as I also take photos as a hobby/enthusiast.
Installation wasn't super difficult since this is my 2nd build, but with my technological illiteracy in mind, cable management and fan placements were a little troublesome. Here are the components:
Works great out of the box (will try OCing later but so far so good.
Super quiet and kept my CPU cool (+ RGB lighting is super pretty).
Super easy to set up + durable.
Super quick and easy to install. Boot windows in less than 10s.
Reliable and fast, as expected from Crucial.
This + Freesync is amazing and was able to handle everything I threw at it.
Super easy installation guide, great airflow & aesthetically pleasing. What more can you ask?
Dampen sound like crazy could not hear any of my fans.
Had no problem picking up wifi and maintain a stable connection + BT is a great addition.
Works great and are super silent.
Works great + RGB while still being silent.
No backlight bleed + great contrast while still maintaining stellar colors. Freesync does wonders & the aggressive curve of the monitor really increase immersion.
Super nice looking + perfect length to not have unnecessary extra cables in the back of case.
