Not really forever but I hope this would last me 3-5 years lol. The prices that you see is how much I spent after discounts & rebate, I bought everything at microcenter all in one day with their 6 month 0% financing plan (would've been 18months but I was a couple days late for that promo..)
I currently have it running at only 4.4ghz at 1.2V, I would go higher but my cooler is kinda limited, I originally wanted the CM hyper 212 but it was too tall for my case so I settled for a temporary $10 cooler til I can upgrade to a better one (still debating whether to get liquid cooling or those Noctua fans, I would really appreciate it if you guys have any suggestions about it.) But nontheless, even with my tiny CM heatsink my temps doesn't go over 80C under 100% load so I'm kinda happy with it at the moment lol.
I'll add part reviews later. Let me know what you guys think!
Fastest processor I ever owned, no complaints here.
Decent heatsink for its price. It does its job well and then some but if you're looking to seriously overclock your CPU then you obviously have to spend more lol.
Great mobo! Easy to use BIOS, well placed pins. Oh & if you're gonna use M.2 instead of 2.5" SSD, just make sure to switch it in the BIOS or else windows won't be able to detect your SSD partition, but most of you probably already knew that lol.
Cheapest DDR4-3000 I could find, can't really complain about anything.
Very fast! This thing is much faster than my old Samsung 850 evo, it literally takes less then 10 seconds to boot up my system, with my old Samsung it usually takes 20secs to boot up my old computer. Just make sure to download & enable momentum cache.
Best GPU I ever owned, can handle all the games I throw at it. I currently have mine OC'd at +85 & +300, which is probably not even needed but it's stable at 60C-70C under load so I just left it like that after messing with it lol.
Probably the best case at its price range! Material doesn't feel flimsy at all (as long as you're careful when you pop open the front & top part), nice smooth, glossy finish, plenty of space to mess around with, great air flow and most importantly it turns anybody into a cable management pro. Would highly recommend, especially to first time builders.
Cheapest 750W PSU I could find, does its job well, granted I only had it for a couple of days so I can't say much about durability. It's only semi-modular but at that price I can't really complain plus all the cables are easy to hide at the back of your case anyway lol.
Wireless Network Adapter
It's decent for it's price, if you're getting slow wifi speeds just update your driver and mess around with the antennas a bit & you will eventually find the sweetspot and then never mess with it ever again lol.
It's a fan, it lights up, it's cheap (got it for $3.99), it is kinda loud but not airplane taking off loud, I can hardly notice it whenever I'm playing. In short, you get what you pay for.
