My first build in 10-15 years, but everything went pretty well. My son is doing 3D animation and some gaming, so he chose the parts and I built it for him.
Kind of jealous, now I have to build me a new rig.
Haven't overclocked it yet, but runs pretty fast as is. Nice CPU
This thing is HUGE!! With the 2nd fan installed you couldn't even really see the RAM much. Shouldn't have any trouble cooling the system and never let the CPU get over 60C during all the tests. Super quiet fans. Never heard them running sitting right beside the case with the cover off.
Red & Black and had everything my son needed. No trouble getting to anything to install it. BIOS Menu is nice and easy
Matched the Red & Black Theme and all 4 sticks produced 0 errors in an overnight MeTest86+ Run
FAST! This thing is nice. M.2 takes a small amount of space on the MB, freeing up 2.5" rack slides to be removed if necessary for extra air flow. Installed as boot drive and Win10 boots within seconds.
2TB lots of storage. Had to use disk management to Initialize it and create a simple volume. So far so good.
Crazy Video card and HUGE! Nice Red & Black to match the Theme. This was my biggest issue on the build. I had to use the DVI port on the GPU to install the drivers, before I could use the HDMI Port. Very nice card and things look amazing on it, even on my POS monitor. lol
Not a bad case at all for the money. Things get a little tight with the Noctua installed but otherwise not bad. Cable management was pretty good and I removed all the excess drive slides for a little extra air flow. Fans work great and the LEDs aren't too bright The only thing I really didn't like about the case is the port covers on the back are permanent. Once removed they are gone, so if you ever have to swap slots and remove a cover, it's off for good, leaving a hole. Not a big deal, I just don't like it.
Great PSU. Fully modular, my first one to work with, and I won't use anything else now. Too easy and no stray cords to tuck in and under stuff. Rock solid.
It's Windows. It's an Operating System. It's better than Windows 8/8.1
With the backlight on I liked the keyboard, but when it was off it sure was hard for me to see the letters/numbers etc. Mouse is good and they both match the Red/Black Theme
