Wanted to get into building something for myself to replace a old pre-built I was using to game. Enjoyed building this and it can handle anything I throw at it pretty well. When I can drop more into it I'll update to a GTX 2070 and a Ryzen 3rd Gen CPU. I should have sprung for the Ryzen 5 2600X for the extra performance.
I can't say enough good things about the Fractal Meshify Case, it was highly rated and did not disappoint.
Should have gone with the 2600X for the extra performance, still handles everything I throw at it.
Excellent cooler, and who doesn't love some RGB?!? Even under heavy load keeps my CPU at ~60-70 C.
Mid Range standard board, no real bells and whistles but the bios is simple.
SSDs are mandatory these days. I got this on sale, highly recommend if you see them for under $100.
Very capable mid range GPU. I can play Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Middle Earth: Shadow of War on high/ultra and maintain 60 fps at 1080p. Toying with the idea of upgrading to a 144hz 1080p monitor to see if this card can hang.
I cannot say enough good things about this case. Perfect for new builders, plenty of room to build, cable management is a piece of cake, amazing airflow. There is a reason why this case has builders raving about it especially for the price!!
These were great fans, I ended up trading them out for some RGB fans from corsair.
