Well, another day another build. Was approached by a client to create a 1080p PUBG machine. Being unfamiliar with requirements, I went to research. Needless to say... wow that game is unoptimized. Even Fenrir couldn't keep sub 60 dips at Ultra 1080! But seeing the average from Fenrir... I figured the 1060 would be the sweet spot (thank you crypto-currency :/)
So, went for a white-out system with flair. Build went par for the course. AM4 bracket missing (happens a LOT), Memory instability without tuning, NVME boot loop until BIOS update on mobo... yah. Love a new platform when it's all up and running!
Customer picked up with stock cooler installed. AIO to be installed later. Demo'ed right in front of him with PUBG Ultra and saw dips to 40's. Hit Medium, never dipped below 55 (Per Riva tuner). Customer is coming from a first gen i5 and Radeon 7850... so this is a massive improvement. Enjoy the photo's!
Nothing that hasn't been said about Ryzen. Great Price to performance, support is ever growing and easy to bump up just a little bit. Great new CPU AMD, welcome back.
1 Star off for no AM4 bracket. Other than that seemed like a well built cooler and would have been 2 points off if not for the amazing customer service received when inquiring. Deepcool has my continued business just because of support.
Well featured Micro ATX board... and not many other Micro White choices ;)
Have had great luck with TEAM products, price is great and XMP always works... albeit sometimes a little looser than my liking. But great RAM if looking for just a splash of color and not wanting to pay for RGB
Almost par with my HyperX Predator synthetically. Very nice little drive and other than boot loop on old BIOS, very stable. Also great price to performance
THE HDD of the past, ol reliable
OK, so this was about the ONLY card design I would consider in this theme, and thank jiminey Newegg had some... stupid crypto-craze... About $80 more than I would normally pay, but 1070 was too far a jump for the budget.
Great finish, amazing cable opportunities and the Tempered glass and LED front make this a premium case for Average $. Great job Inwin, great job. Customer was stunned that this was going to be his.
Would have preferred Gold rated, but budget means sacrifice. Also, this specific series has done well so far, Let's hope it continues!
Need the LEDS (well... for vanity sake) and airflow as the Inwin 301 has no included fans. Just bright enough to see through the smoked panel and not so bright they annoy when nearby. But word to wise, when mounted up front the LED's drown out the Inwin's Blue LED for front panel as they shine right through.
