This is my first built with no spare parts (except for the cpu cooler, mouse and keyboard). Back then i would grab random parts from my dad's workplace, off the street and gifts from other people.
I mainly play games like LoL (whilst streaming), Starcraft and Overwatch. However it really does vary depending which new games are out haha.
I always dreamed of getting the top end i5 unlocked version since i started playing around with computers. Although it works very well, sometimes the 4 cores and 4 threads just aren't enough. When you're streaming, watching youtube and playing games all at the same time. However I still love how fast this thing runs.
I originally had a Thermaltake water 2.0 Performer (the cheapest one) that broke down after about two years. I sent it back to them and they gave me this in less than a week. So definitely no complaints at all for this one. Although i do like pother ones more, i keep this as a reminder to always ask when things don't work.
Sadly in the 1151 series motherboards, there aren't any black and blue ones which suit my taste. So i opted for this however I now dislike this as it lacks usb ports at the back now that type c is the new thing. 4 usb ports aint very handy
Raid 0 on these. Doesn't really make a huge difference i have to say.
Love this card. The aesthetics and stuff. Still waiting for it to go on clearance so i can sli them
