Description

My first fully custom build. I initially opted for the hyper 212 LED, but my AM4 mounting bracket didn't fit so I just decided to stick with the stock cooler until I upgrade to either an AIO or a custom loop.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great budget quad core, crushes any productivity tasks as well as gaming and light video editing.

Motherboard

Decent motherboard. 2 fan headers is a serious dissapointment and the LEDS are meh. Does everything it needs to and the bios is bearable.

Memory

It's ram. One of the only 8 gb kits that cam get up to 3200 MHz. Looks clean af in my black and red build

Storage

Cheap and fast. Next time I would probably opt for a 256 next time.

Video Card

Only budget card that isn't inflated as heck. I got it from b stock cheaper but if I had waited until Wednesday I could have gotten it for $120

Case

Beautiful case. Doesn't come with any case fans, and there is zero room for cable management behind the motherboard tray. Semi modular power supply is a must.

Power Supply

Cheap, ugly and loud but you get what you pay for.

Case Fan

Disappointed in the level of the LEDS. They are nothing like the picture lol. Functionality wise they work fine.

Seems pretty good, the power supply seems a bit iffy though.

Power supply is definitely the weakest point of this build. I'm upgrading to a fully modular b3 450 as soon as I can afford some sexy CableMod sleeved cables. I'll make an update at that point :)

Did you have problems doing this build?

SamEriksenSchultz submitter 3 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

Not really. Cable management could obviously be better, when I get a new PSU I'm going to take out the motherboard and run all the case cables (HD audio, power, leds) behind the motherboard.

Also initially I had opted for a hyper 212 led so I could get a better OC on it, but I had the wrong AM4 adapter so I ended up giving it to a friend to use in their 4570k
