I mainly use this PC for gaming on first person shooters, light video editing, and rendering. Nothing serious at all just making in-game clips from games I play. Mainly used for PUBG, CSGO, BeamNG.drive, GTA 5, and other graphic intensive games (not saying CSGO is graphic intensive btw). The inspiration for this build came from gaming on a laptop for too long. Granted it was a decent laptop in some respects (i7 7700hq, 12GB RAM, GTX 1060 3GB) it still was nothing compared to this new PC build. I know it seems probably a little overkill for just FPS games and light/basic rendering+editing, but I just wanted to build something that would last atleast a few years before needing a major upgrade, and also I wanted to see how drastically my in game skills would improve with better fps, refresh rate, screen size/resolution, etc... My future plans for upgrades are as follows: (2) Sticks of 8GB DDR4 3200mhz G.Skill RAM (4 Sticks totaling 32GB), M.2 500GB SSD, and hopefully a GTX 1080Ti or and RTX 2080.
Everything fit very well and pieced together very easily. The only issues I had was with my Coolermaster ML240R AIO. The instructions were very brief and not very detailed, and after hours of trouble shooting I come to find out the LED's in the 120MM fans are DOA, I would of pursued some type of support but the forums make it apparent there really is none to speak of and coolermaster has given up on the issue because its so prevalent with this model. Im no computer expert but Im probably going to go with corsair in the future if I get another RGB AIO. Note: The fans do spin and properly cool the radiator under all load and operations, just no RGB. For me its not worth undoing everything and having my PC out of commission while coolermaster figures out how the situation is going to be dealt with, but Besides that everything went very smoothly, and I couldn't be happier with my first gaming PC!
