Description

Couldn't wait any longer to build a pc. Didn't want to spent too much on a cpu and gpu with zen 2 and Navi right around the corner. I mainly play Overwatch so the 2200g will work for the time being. Got the SSD from a discount store I go to. Benchmark of my most recent (stable as far as I know so far) settings: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/16737098

Part Reviews

CPU

What a beast for the price. Wow. After overclocking the cpu to 4.1GHz and the iGPU to 1690 MHz, I'm seeing massive gains in performance. Even before the overclock, the power it provided was pretty nice for the price.

CPU Cooler

Haven't seen my temperatures go above 66°C. The RGB is nice and is compatible with both my motherboard and my case fans. At the price, an amazing cooler.

Thermal Compound

Temperatures have yet to exceed 66°C. I'm sure that using this instead of stock paste has had a big impact.

Motherboard

This board has everything I need right now at a great price. Seems to be good so far for overclocking the ram, and the CPU/iGPU. Plenty of sata ports, 2 M.2 slots, on board video for my 2200g, amazing built in wifi and bluetooth, multiple rgb connectors. Highly satisfied.

Memory

Wow. This ram is fast. The price has also dropped a lot recently which is great however I bought this last and spent an extra 25 to get it here on time for the rest of my build. I have it overclocked to 3400mhz at 13-13-13-33 cas.

Storage

Not the best SSD, but I got it for around 7$ at a discount store I go to. Does what it needs to.

Case

The airflow on this case is great. Included rgb fans that were compatible with my cooler and my motherboard. 3 rgb fans in the front and one exhaust fan. Has 2 usb 3.0 ports along with a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Don't like the placement of the HDD cage and the SSD slots. Cable management is pretty good but could be a little bit better.

Power Supply

This power supply is great. Silent, plenty of power, plenty of included cables. Nothing negative to say.

Could you share your overclocking settings? I'm stuck at the 3.9GHz CPU and 1690MHz iGPU range, stable until the chip hits 70°C, not sure if it's the chip or a component on the board, using ASRock B450 Fatal1ty ITX.
