Decided to build a PC with my son (7 years old) to get him interested in computers and for him to have his own one to learn on. So we picked a part or two over the space of a few months to spread the cost out. Was fun teaching him about each of the components and trying to let him pick the parts himself, after he picked the case he pretty much wanted everything white lol Seems like white components are not as common and tend to be more expensive though so had to mix n match.
Reasonably chuffed with the build, would rather have got a different case but he was set on the Kolink as soon as he saw it. Having only built one pc before about 7 years ago I was basically learning everything on the go. Made several rookie mistakes, fitted the motherboard without putting the back plate on, completely couldnt understand where the power, reset sw etc pin connected then realised it was all explained on the only page of the manual I hadnt read lol But go there in the end, only to stress out when the monitor wouldnt load anything. Spent about 45 minutes rechecking all the cables then suddenly remembered one of the reviews for the monitor said they had a faulty cable that came with it, so ripped out the DVI and stuck in a spare hdmi cable I had lying about, and hey presto, she was up and running.
Great looking memory sticks, no complaints.
First time using one of these, very easy to install and super fast.
Great little card for the price, doesn't require any extra power cables and runs the likes of Minecraft, fortnite etc no bother at all.
Was very impressed when I first opened the box. Comes with a nice psu bag and cable bag. Eco mode switch is great also so fan doesnt run or make any noise until it has to.
For the price, cant really complain. Using a full size motherboard blocks out a lot of the holes for routing the cables through which is a shame, but plenty of space hiding them and routing them elsewhere.
