Description

 Starting off with building the PC, I ran into a few issues with the fan and light strip LED's working properly. When first starting them up I had some problems with my lighting node pro controller working properly and only certain fans and light strips lit up. After putting in a new lighting node pro and rearranging some of the light strips, it worked properly. I also had to turn off the CPU fan reader, because obviously it is a water cooler and has no fan. Your computer will not boot without turning off the fan reader.

 My second problem I had was some blue screen driver issues. I almost couldn't use my computer for the first few days because I would launch a game and the computer would crash within 5 minutes. After factory resetting the computer several times and installing drivers specifically by myself I got it to work properly. By only installing necessary drivers I got it to work great! I did not find out which specific drivers were not compatible.

 After I got the computer to work properly, it has been going great 3 months in. The CPU runs stable at 5.0 Ghz and does not surpass 60 degrees Celsius, so in my opinion the h150i Pro is a beast! The h150i Pro is the first water cooler I have ever used and I am very impressed with how it has performed so far, without even having extremely high performance fans. The second thing that I am very impressed with is the GPU. I expected it to be great, but I did not expect it to be this GOOD! I have a 144 Hz 1080p monitor and it can get me above 144 FPS on any game, but I limit them to 144 FPS. The GPU does have some sag, which was expected, but that is my only dislike with the card. The LED's on the card match great with the motherboard, since they are both Asus. The corsair and asus LED's work well together, but when set on one specific color they do not match perfectly. The mother board does well for its price point, and I am very impressed with it. The power supply in my opinion could use some improvement as the 8 pin GPU cords are very ugly and have two 8 pin connectors on them. The case looks great, but could use better cable management, but maybe I am just biased because this is the first computer I have built by myself.

Overall, the computer is great and it is able to do everything that I want it to. The overclocking on the Graphics card and the CPU are great, and I have had no problems with them so far. I recommend this build greatly and if you are considering getting it, I say GO FOR IT!

Nice build! How’s that RAM? I’m thinking of getting it

xSempx submitter 1 Build 0 points 6 months ago

The RAM is great, it looks great and performs well at 3200 Mhz. I have no problems with it, but will probably upgrade to 32 gigs in the future

awesome pc, i have a similar build, but i i upgraded my monitor to 1440p 165hz because i felt like i wasn't using all of the power that the i7 8700k and GTX 1080 ti had to offer

 For anyone reading this, I would like you to know that the builder of this PC is a very toxic person. He makes fun of us everyday when we play games with him and it is starting to get old. Please do not up-vote because he does not deserve it due to his toxicity.
