Description

Before i start saying anything first i want to say HUGE thanks to two of my friends. [UwG]Swats73, who gave me his old PSU for this build on which i'm really thankful. I owe you a dam good bottle of red wine. Morningshade, he helped me with building the whole system.

Alright, back to the build. As you may read my title this is my first PC build ever. Last setup i used was pre-built and actually was really well made. The reason i was building new PC was that my girlfriend wanted to have her own Gaming Rig so i'm giving her my old one + I generally wanted to upgrade my old parts. For this build there is nothing really breath taking about it, if you look at it visually. It was an nightmare to work with this case, there is 0 cable managment space to put all the cables. I wanted to hide as much of cables i could, but on the pictures you can see how it all ended. The other thing was that i barely was able to put my GPU in it, which i found funny. :D note to myself in future, choose bigger case in future or smaller GPU. Overall about the BitFenix case i love how classic it looks from outside, but on the inside it's just pure sh*t show.

On other parts i really dont have any comments or even on this build. CPU - run's faster than Keemstar. GPU - handles everything on ultra i managed to throw at it note that i haven't tested any big games yet, but i will really soon. RAM - is ram on which i have no comment. PSU - i felt like this thing was made to power my whole appartment. CPU cooler - for its price it's doing really good on idle the temperatures are like 29-31.

In the future i will change the case to something bigger and will be getting an sealed CPU water cooler so i can overclock the CPU and of course i will be getting an SSD as well.

Some of the games i tried: Battlefield 4 on Ultra - Min 85 Max 110fps, CS:GO on Max - didn't dropped lower than 250fps stood arround 280/290fps, Sniper Elite 3 on Highest settings - 150fps.

Part Reviews

CPU

Runs faster than Keemstar.

CPU Cooler

I actually like this CPU cooler alot. It does it's job well even tho is one of the cheapest on the market. Would totally recommend for those who needs that extra cash for some other parts.

Motherboard

I found this motherboard easy to work with, for beginners this mobo will fit well. + it has cool LED effect on the left side of the board.

Memory

I have nothing to say about this Ram, does it's job really well with no issues.

Storage

For non SSD build this is an must get item. Has enough space, runs kinda well. The only thing is that it can be a bit noisy and ofc is not as fast as SSD.

Video Card

This thing kills every game i throw at it. Get this card if you want to play all games on Ultra settings.

Case

This case gave me nightmares. I love how it looks from the outside, but the main issue is the inside of the case. There is barely any space to hide all the cables. If you are building your first PC build ever and not really caring for the cable management then you can go for this case.
