This was my first ever build which went surprisingly well, except for the fact that the motherboard came with an outdated BIOS which would not allow me to install Windows until I updated it, but that was an easy fix. I originally wanted to purchase 16GB of ram, but ram prices are crazy right now and don't seem to be dropping any time soon, so 8GB will do for now. Both streaming and gaming are a breeze, and I am able to hit 60+ fps with nearly max settings on any game. The only thing left to do is get some RGB strips in this beast! Ignore any cable management you see... or don't see haha.
The countless reviews on this monster of a processor speak for itself. Great price and good for entry level builders like myself. Makes everything from browsing the web to editing photos a breeze.
Has everything I need and more. Bios is easy to navigate, just make sure it's up to date before installing an OS, lost a few hairs over an easy fix lol.
Great ram, does the job. Price is ridiculous right now but that has nothing to do with how well it performs, plus you can always get more along the way.
Plenty of space for what I need. Fast and sleek.
What a beast. I run Fortnite at 200 fps with mixed settings, 60+ on epic which is overkill. Totally worth if you cannot commit to a 1080, and the white LED lighting is a nice touch.
So beautiful, and cable management was too easy. The included accessories are a great bonus.
Wasn't planning on using this PSU at first, but I have no regrets. Black cable sleeves make it that much better. People stress over fully-modular when it really doesn't make that much of a difference.
