This was a amazing upgrade. I went from a A8 to a rysen 5 2600X WITH dedicated graphics.
That didn't mean that everything went off without a hitch. First the case we got had a side panel screw bent so i would not open. Thankfully Newegg was very good with the process and we got it back very quickly. After me not remembering to plug stuff in repetitively we managed to get it to boot. Then it went off without a hitch, we got windows installed on it and everything seemed perfect. So i got pretty late and i wasn't able to test anything on it until the next day.
I went to boot it up and some problems started happening. We weren't booting to widows and after a bit of investigation we found out that the bios wasn't detecting the M.2 drive. After an hour of troubleshooting we decided just to install windows on to the hard drive. We even tried putting the m.2 in the other slot, then putting it back to the first slot. We expect it to be an bios problem.
All in all for a first computer this succeeded. I barely hear the case when not gaming and when i am it crushes the games. It will be a long time until i will really push this system to its limit.
If you have any idea why the m.2 isn't working please tell me.
But now, ill go play some TF2.
The Motherboard is pretty good. It might be the cause of the m.2 problem, but i doubt its the cause.
This memory is prety fast and cheap, much better than 4 gigabites of ddr3 which was in my trash laptop
The day after we installed the the OS our bios stopped detecting the drive and we were not able to boot off of it. However we think it is a problem with the bios as we tried uninstalling and re installing the drive.
GOTTA GO FAST
Going from integrated to a 1070 was amassing crushes every game i throw at it. Installation was easy and the drivers came with it in a disk.
This case is really nice i can barely hear the fans, looks good and the drive bays are real nice. I have one complaint. Even thought the front only has one disk slot, the chassis has two drive bays and even a floppy disk area. This gives the case a cheaper feel as its makes cable management a lot harder to route around it. Also when the fans (ones included) are running at full speed, the panels rattles a bit, kinda annoying.
