Description

I purchased all these parts when I could find them at a decent price. The build took about a year to coalesce due to the GPU market but I finally finished it out with some room to expand to purchasing a AIO for my CPU. I'm happy with the result on my first parted out build and now ready to game with out any pain on 1080p with my new RX580.

Could also minus about $35 when all rebates are completed $15 for my case, and another $20 for my graphics card. But did not add in price because have not received them yet.

Part Reviews

CPU

Solid efficient CPU, mainly used for Adobe CC PS/AE/AI and testing out some 1080p 60fps streaming. The more cores helped a lot out with post processing / rendering. Have not had a single problem yet and overclocked effortlessly to 3.8.

Motherboard

The black/gray fit my theme well and was glad to have the option in BIOS to remove the LED's from the on board logo. Only could get my 3200 DDR4 G.Skill Ripjaws RAM up to 2933Mhz stable other then that easy RAM/CPU overclocking in BIOS without any issues.

Storage

Cheapest SSD I could find at the time, just wanted a fast boot time and maybe store 1-4 games for that as well. Works as intended, peeled the sticker off the front to keep it neutral.

Storage

Cheap storage, works as intended, a bit of noise on spin ups and scratches as HDD's do. Solid.

Case

I love the look of this case, not sure if it is the best for airflow, but the full side tempered glass at this price I could not resist. Can mount three 120mm fans on the front it came with 2 out of the box and supports top mounting AIO. The single LED strip that was mounted on the top was not enough to illuminate my needs so I went and purchased a separate kit and chained it to the LED controller at the top of the case. Decent cable management with good size gaps on the side to route some cables running along the edges of the case.

Power Supply

Mustard and ketchup cables with a black shroud surrounding them. Cheap non-modular power supply when on sale, and quite sounding. Does what it needs to do no problems.

Keyboard

Solid straight forward keyboard for the price. Cherry MX Reds flow through your fingers like butter. Cleanest keyboard design I could find that wasn't outrageous with all the attached gamer aesthetics. Thinking about getting the LED version if it ever comes down in price.

Headphones

Had these for about two years then the microphone stopped working out of nowhere. Luckily contacted Kingston support and they sent over a new refurbished pair free of charge in warranty so I would be wary about that. Still my favorite pair of headphones by far with the secondary velvet ear pads. They feel the most comfortable apposed to others I have tried.

Custom

Decent LED strips, not a fan of the different color cycling modes and had a bit a trouble with the sensor at time, but still not a bad set for just 15$.

Nice! I have one and I LOVE it. They aren't too expensive tho. I think they're only at around $105, but I might be wrong.

I need to get a 3TB HDD to make my current build comparable to yours storage-wise. Otherwise, we're pretty close. Love your build and great job on hunting down those parts during that time!
