+ Total (United Kingdom):
Exactly what it says on the tin, I'm getting into streaming, editing and the like, so I needed a computer to help me do it effectively!
Exactly what I was looking for, doesn't run too hot and does everything it's needed to without issue.
I was originally going to go with a quad core cpu, but I'm definitely not disappointed I decided to go for the hexacore instead!
I got the nepton for a really low price, it was a steal for how well it performs, a lot quieter than I expected!
I wish the tubes were more flexible and that I could take off the bright yellow label on the pump-motherboard connector without voiding my warranty but aside from those relatively minor things it's great
I really wasn't sure what to do with the motherboard, I'd been recommended the msi z97 gaming 5 and decided to go with its big brother when I made the jump to x99, no issues so far!.
It's RAM, looks nice and does what it's supposed to!
Not the fastest SSD around but the price/performance/space ratio is great even at its normal price.
Not much to say about this really, it's big and does its job.
I had a bit of an issue with the temperature on these as I had them both right beside each other because I thought the space in my case wouldn't let me have them apart. Turns out I can just barely fit one lower down, fixed the temperatures on the cards but now my SSD runs a little hot, it's within acceptable ranges though!
The cards themselves perform amazingly, there isn't a game I've tried where having maxed out settings brings the framerate below 60. I tend to keep AA and those types of things off because I don't really notice any difference between the setting being on or not, when those settings are off I haven't seen games dip below 100 except where they're locked!
I absolutely love how this case looks, it just falls short in a few other areas.
It's kind of hard to work in, the front masks a lot of the backend which makes it look nice but means putting parts in can be a bit challenging, I had to lean the case at an angle and reach my arm though the back to put in a few parts.
I wish there were more alternative mounts for SSDs and HDDs if you want to put a radiator any bigger than 140mm in push/pull you need to sacrifice all of your standard drive bays which limits you to two SSD mounts on the psu shroud which makes for a tight fit if you space out sli GPUs) and one HDD mount which is like to have cables trailing all over it as it's almost right next to the psu, It's also a pain to install as the lip on the side of the case means you need to bend your sata cables at an angle I wasn't the most comfortable doing.
Runs whisper quiet and cool as you like, no problems!
Not as bad as people claim it is, I don't know my way around it fully which can make it a bit confusing, but It's absolutely fine if you're willing to take the time to learn how it works.
Runs quiet with great airflow and come with anti-vibration screws, but don't think you're ever going to be able to use them, after at least half an hour of struggling with one screw, I couldn't even get it all the way through the fan, nevermind through the case as well.
Leds could be brighter, but I actually like the sort of subtle look they have, personal preference.
Haven't messed with the colour profiles at all, but I have no clue what the people claiming this monitor looks washed out are on about.
Haven't messed around with the 3d because I don't care for it and also don't want to pay the pretty high price for the kit, so no comments about that. For normal use, it's great.
I'm thinking about getting a keyboard with cherry MX blues, the reds are great for typing but I find myself accidentally pressing shift or A when playing games, not the keyboard's fault of course.
No problems with it so far, does exactly what I want it to.
Amazing mouse, I was worried about going with an optical sensor over a laser, but my doubts turned out to be completely unfounded with this mouse.
