Description

Used for medium gaming - Wolfenstein, Warframe, Fallout 4. Can easily do 60fps high-medium settings on 1080p. Fallout 4 runs at Ultra settings around 45 fps.

This machine is super quiet. Also the SSD boots really fast. The semi-modular PSU was a life saver for cable management.

The reason I have both an SSD and a hard drive is actually so that I run Windows 10 with games on my SSD, and Linux on my hard drive for work.

Pretty much nothing out of the ordinary happened for a first-time build. Still needs work on cable management.

Part Reviews

CPU

Fast, runs quiet with stock cooler.

Motherboard

Reinforced PCIE slots, cheap, has M2 and USB 3.0 and easy debug lights. Only complaint is lack of wifi (but has ethernet).

Memory

The cheapest ddr4 8gb ram I could find. It works.

Storage

It works, but still slow compared to SSD.

Video Card

Small card which leaves lots of room in my case. Runs quietly, but the fan is unable to go below 30% by design, so be aware of that. Performance is great (high settings 60fps 1080p)

Case

Good room for cable management, see-through window, fans that come with case light up and are really pretty much silent. An all around solid budget case.

Power Supply

Semi-modular PSU is great for cable management. Runs cool, and basically silent.

Nice build, I recently used the same case in one of my builds and I love it. Glad someone else picked one up because it is hard to beat at that price range. It just goes to show you don't need to spend $3,000 to have a good time.

Nice build, because you gave game stats that happened to include warframe might just lowkey steal your parts list. :P
