Description

I use this PC for my everyday PC and for gaming. The PC works great! You can check out my steam profile and see the games I play on this PC. The Temps never get over 55C even while playing BF4 or CoD:BO2 for hours. I am VERY impressed! It is SO much better than my old Dell Latitude from 2004.

Edit 1: I am going to purchase a Case fan with Blue LED's. I also bought a new mouse. I will update with Pics as soon as I receive them.

Edit 2:Added photos of LED Fans and new Mouse.

Edit 3:New TV and xbox one controller

Edit 3:DualShock 4 controller (PS4 Controller)

Part Reviews

Keyboard

Amazing keyboard! Mouse broke within 1 week because the scroll wheel kept freaking out and the left click was getting sticky.

Speakers

OK for YouTube but definitely get better speakers for anything else may it be gaming or music.

I can tell that you don't have desk cleanliness OCD like me.

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 55 months ago

Actually, I do. I am selling all the things on the right side of the desk.

How do you like the keyboard?

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 55 months ago

Love it! My mobo is making me have to get a new mouse though. I can't figure out how to turn of the LED's on the mouse so even when the computer is off, the LED from the mouse is on because my mobo gives power to the USB ports when the PC is off.

It means that the GPU itself is sagging on the motherboard.

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 55 months ago

The locking clip that holds the card onto the mobo broke when changing from the r9 270x to the 5950.

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 55 months ago

Edit:7950

Smooth...

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 55 months ago

I know :(

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 50 months ago

I ordered a new Mobo. (1/12/15)

mrsimplycrazy 2 points 55 months ago

+1 for your background...and the duck.

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 55 months ago

Thank you....

yahoolinovich 1 point 54 months ago

Do you need a Sound Card for this?

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

No. Sound is built into the Mobo.

rickystheman24 1 point 41 months ago

Oh cable management where art thou.

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

ahh. My first build back when I was 14 years old.

jbBuilder 1 Build 1 point 39 months ago

Was thinking about getting these speakers for a budget gaming build I am planning on. Can give me some details as to why you think these speakers may not be as suitable for gaming?

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

Ah, these speakers. These ones are just for listening to music in the background of games. For games you want 4 channel speakers or a Dolby surround sound headset so you can hear the guns come from every direction so you know where to shoot. They are OK for racing games and such but not for FPS games. Enjoy :)

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

This was an August 2013 PC, parts were just starting to get cheaper haha

+1 for the build, and DAMN, clean all those cables up, and I mean your entire room, lol...Nice build!

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 2 points 55 months ago

The room is as clean as I can get it as I am selling most of the extra clutter.

wallywintrow1972 2 points 55 months ago

Lol, I was only kidding dude ;)

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 55 months ago

I know ;-). I actually think the cable management is good.

wallywintrow1972 2 points 55 months ago

Not bad, you can take the cord for cpu fan, and curl it around fan, underneath so you only use what you need, and it will kind of hide it, and it won't be hanging in front of heatsink.

Technowhiz123 submitter 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

Alright, done.
