Description

The build went really smoothly, just wish the case had slightly better cable management but it does have really nice air flow. Other than that I am happy with the build, it is mainly used for gaming with a little bit of school and university work being done on it. I think this CPU and gpu is a really nice pairing for 1080p with this monitor.

Part Reviews

CPU

Really nice chip for the price. Can handle any game I throw at it at 1080p. Couldn't be happier with it.

CPU Cooler

I would give this 5 stars except the clips are very annoying. Once installed keeps temps nice and low.

Motherboard

Could have some moree fan headers and have USB 3.0 for the front panel but other than that a solid board

Memory

It's ram. Gets the job done, nothing special to look at but I don't sit their admiring Ram anyway.

Storage

Decent speed, nice and reliable. Can't complain.

Video Card

Really nice for 1080p gaming. I wish I spent slightly more and got the rx 470 though. Oh well!

Case

Cable management isn't the best but air flow is excellent and helps keep everything cool.

Power Supply

Does what it needs to. No complaints.

Optical Drive

It works, not the fastest but gets the job done.

Monitor

Very emersive for sim racing. Love this monitor. No visible light bleeding

Keyboard

Wish I got a mechanical keyboard but this is a very high quality membrane keyboard plus it looks nice so can't complain. I did overpay a little for it but oh well, perks of being Australian

Mouse

I love this mouse, very cheap but very good gaming performance. Can't complain!

Headphones

Very nice and comfortable. Can wear for hours without irritation.

This is nice because you fit a minister and a pair of headphones in

Nice, does the monitor works good for gaming? +1

Yeah most games support the resolution, if not a mod can fix it. I've had it for a while now and I'm liking it, not for everyone but I enjoy it. Would recommend if you were thinking of getting one.
