This was the first build I have ever done. Weeks of research, and reading reviews, and price checking (Thanks Miners). I found myself here. All though I have all the parts, there is still a few cosmetic things that I would like to add. I will update as I get them in place.
It has been awesome. Hovers around 27°C Idle, CAM software has been showing me running about 39°C after about 2 hours of Witcher 3. I have not done any benchmarking since I got everything installed. I have not done any overclocking on it as of yet just because i need to do more research on how to do it. I literally have no idea what needs to be done. If you are looking Ryzen, you won't be disappointed in the results.
I'm taking a star simply because it is a pain in the butt to get a AM4 bracket to fit this. After finally looking around, it seems NZXT, Corsair, and Thermaltake all use the exact same AM4 bracket. This made life much easier. This was a gift from my little brother, and he didn't have the original 140mm fans. That is what the Artic F140s are for. White fits the build. Overall been very happy they are nice a quite on about 60% load through CAM.
Ok, so, I love this board. It is small, stylish, the Red LEDS (Yes red is all you can get). I knew I wasn't going to be trying to Crossfire any GPU any time soon so it didn't bother me to sack the other PCI-E slot. I did run into an issue flashing the BIOS for the Ryzen CPU (which others said was REQUIRED. After flashing, the PC would not boot past the BIOS, I could not get it to see any drive (SSD, HDD, or USB) to install Windows. I fought with it for three days looking up what to do and finally right before I was about to send it back to Newegg, I flashed it again and everything worked. Don't know what went wrong the first time, don't know if I did something out of order but everything has been fine since then so I ain't complaining. Overall if you aren't looking for a Full ATX and are looking AM4, give this one some thought.
It's RAM, I have it running at 3000 Mhz and it is stable. can't complain.
Works great, Loads Windows 10 Home in less than 4 sec.
Holdover from a older computer I had. Works and I am using it for storage of games and media mostly.
If I could give this bad boy 100 stars I would. I got this before the 2018 price jump, for $489 on Newegg. Oh boy was I glad I did. This thing is a champ. Handles everything I throw at it and it does so without me even knowing that it is on and running. Stock MSI fan curve won't even turn the fans on till it reaches 60°C. After about 45 mins of Heaven and Valley, I never saw the temps get above 71°C. I got scores of 3558 in Valley and 2422 in Heaven, both set to Ultra/Extreme. I'll catch some flak for not just getting the 1080 but I wan't to save the money, still compete with the Vega 54, and with a slight overclock I am right there at 1080 for $50-100 less. I can live with that choice.
This was one of the last pieces I got for the build (had an older PC tower I was using till I figured out which one I wanted). I went back and forth with the this and the Corsair 400C. Honestly it could have went either way. I went NZXT simply for the SSD display trays, the tempered glass panel (which is awesome), and the front panel HDMI and USB 3.0 for VR. One complaint I will say. You will not being doing a Push/Pull config with an AIO in this thing. It only fits with the fans in the Pull position.
Wanted full modular. EVGA and Corsair were neck and neck, I went EVGA for no other reason then it was on sale for $74.
Windows, what more can be said.
These were a screw up order on my part. I thought they were 140mm to use on my Kraken x61. Instead of returning them, I am currently using them as case fans since my MB has 4-pin fan headers. They are quite enough and I like the matte black.
These are used on my Kraken x61. Reviews were good, and I was really digging the white/black look. Overall been very happy with them. Quite and dependable.
Little small but it serves my needs well. No complaints.
This this is a beast. Love it. I can hook my XB1 or PS4 up and it will allow me to input select without messing with anything on the computer. Wish it was a 144mhz but I'm not that worried about it at this point.
Love it. I don't like mech keyboards at all, at least none that I have tried. This board gives me the feel of a regular keyboard, with the style and function of a gaming mech board.
Got it on sale. Love the DPI selection and the button remapping through Logitech software. Software is easy to use and to understand.
I have had these for 6 years now, and I don't know where I would be without them. They work on my PC, Xbox 1 and PS4 with no issues.
Since Thermaltake, Corsair and NZXT all use the same AM4 bracket. This was the only one I could find not on ebay. Works great, just remember it doesn't come with a backing plate so make sure you keep the stock one from you motherboard.
The MSI 1070ti Titanium is a massive card that weights a ton. I had to add the support bracket to eliminate the sag. This works like a charm.
