Time laps of the finished build here: https://youtu.be/VgQNjP5jAB0
Took me a while to post this one, sorry about that. We had been collecting parts and pulled the trigger on completing the build during the recent graphics card crisis. The finishing touches are finally on and the build is running great. Got some pictures of it running at my buddy's house. He's running fortnite and work constantly with great temps.
Deadpool emblem was taken from a belt buckle and the paint is splattered enamel. We got the action figure for about 30 bucks. Another 10 or so for lights and 30 on cable and that pretty much covers the cosmetics.
The cpu and cooler are both hand-me-downs. And no, that cooler DOES NOT fit am4....but we made it fit : P https://youtu.be/UegLnA5-uJQ fun times....
Everything else was chosen with mid range and quality in mind. The Graphics card was not cheep at time but the system came in around 1000 after everything so not too bad considering how bad prices were. The corsair RAM was on sale at micro center so that was kinda a steal.
The fractal case is amazing. SOOOO many places for 120mm fans in such a small case. Review here!: https://youtu.be/WqBAOmRZqVw
what else can I say... I'm always happy to get a friend back into the game. Making something with quality and flair makes me happy too : P
I suck bc I couldn't think of any deadpool jokes to include in this description... guess I'll just go grab myself a chimichanga and a mountain dew to think it over...
powerful with a low wattage and nice low temps. Great mid-low range chip if your on a budget on want to stay small and quiet.
No easy way to upgrade this to am4. Had me a headache. Temps are that amazing ether. Tubes suck. The red core is cool but always strobes.
great mid-low range gaming board. No problems so far. Wish it had wifi.
sexy af. what can I say. Also overclocked and reliable. Try and find it on sale as it is very nice but overpriced.
So far so good. Couldn't afford the Samsung but this is almost as good for a much better price. WD is dependable as far as I know.
THIS COOLER IS REDICK for a 1060. Kinda overkill but kinda awesome at the same time. One of only 2 1060s in the store during the GPU crisis so we took what we could get.
Great performance compared to others but the thing reminds me of the old r9 390 its so big. Keep that in mind as far as your case and slots.
This matx case has more then most full atx cases, and its well built, and its easy to use. Easy pick. Go for the mesh version if noise isn't a thing that bothers you. This one manages to stay cool with the sound dampening so the noise really just comes out the back. Kinda nice I gotta say.
corsair, and a 7 yr warranty. was also on sale. Seemed a great choice. easy to work with. Gold rated is a good feeling.
