So I have been PC gaming ever since I was 5 believe it or not. My dad introduced me to World of Warcraft and the original Call of Duty Modern Warfare. I had a blast playing these games and when I was 10 I built my very own PC (with some help of course). I decided it was time to upgrade this year (2 and a half years since last build) because my old build had an AMD FX 8320 processor and R9 270x gpu so my room got hotter than and oven and because of AMD's trash stock cooler it sounded like I was gaming on an airport runway. Today I went to Micro Center and bought all of the necessary parts (I had been researching what parts to use for the prior month) and 2 and a half hours later I had built my new PC. I couldn't be happier, the PC boots in less than 5 seconds and under full load my rig is actually quiet, something unheard of when using a stock AMD cooler. Game performance is also phenomenal, the GTX 1060 is amazing for the price (definitely a rx 480 killer) and paired with the i5 7600k I am seeing very, very respectable frame-rates. All in all I had a lot of fun making this build and I plan on continuing to be a member of the PCMasterRace as I grow and build more.
Stupidly fast and great for gaming!
Very quiet and keeps cpu temps respectably low!
Very good motherboard with features like usb type c and m.2 support, also rgb lighting. I had to knock off a star because the rgb fusion app isn't even worth installing on android...it simply wont work.
Ram is ram...
Insanely fast, boots in less than 6 seconds.
Stupidly fast. Best 2.5 ssd you can get.
Temps get pretty hot and card doesn't look too good. Performs great for the cost and is definitely and rx 480 killer!
Good case for a beginner like me. Standoffs are pre-installed and there is a post in the middle for easy motherboard installation. Cable management is pretty good.
Nothing too special and it's not fully modular. I just had it laying around and that's the only reason why I used it.
