First time I've ever built a pc. I was quite proud ;P First time booting it up and it was done in almost an instant, way faster than my old pc which ran slower than a turtle could walk. I use this pc mainly for pretty light gaming. It was performing with over 100 FPS on medium settings in fortnite which was completely fine with me.

Everything was easy to install. The processor took less than 30 seconds. Ram took less than 10 seconds as it should be. SSD was a little tricky due to how the power supply's sata cable was quite awkward. The motherboard came with sata cables and screws for the psu (it's my first time so I don't know if that's like all mobos) The gpu didn't click. It sounded like a snap. I got really worried there but after I checked, it seemed fine. I wasn't sure if it was the gpu or the slot. The case didn't have the greatest cable management. It's not for beginners, which I am. That part took me at least an hour and a half. You could barely fit some of the psu cables through. The ssd mount was amazing though. One problem I had was how the case's hdd bays blocked one of the two sata ports that were wired into the chipset. Overall, building it was super fun and using it was even more fun!

Part Reviews


Has red lights on the side, easy to work with and looks amazing for the price. No problems with it as of yet.


Works completely fine. It's ram. The heatsinks were a nice touch and weren't too big.


Has a lot of space and read and write speeds are fantastic. It's compact and was easy to install.

Video Card

Made a strange noise when I popped it into the motherboard. But it's completely fine. It's quiet, small, and looks nice.


Cable management was pretty hard. Not many holes to get cables through and some of the drive bays were in the way. In the end, it looks great. Came with two fans, one with red leds. Power button is pretty loud. Overall, it's a nice case.

Power Supply

All black. Easy to work with. Looks nice. Great psu

What's the case like? Would you recommend it? Nice build as well!

Thanks! The case was iffy. There was a lot of space for the PSU and GPU. There were tons of bays which kinda blocked the USB 3.0 port on the motherboard. Luckily there was one at the bottom of my motherboard. Cable management was the hardest part. Not many holes to get the cables through and my 24-pin cable had to be plugged in without going through the back since it didn't reach the first time I tried. Back panel didn't have that much space. Trying to fit more than 5 cables back there would be a two-man job. I would recommend it if you had multiple people helping you or if you are experienced (which I am not ;P). If you were a beginner or a novice I would recommend a better case but the price can't be beaten and it looks very nice. Came with two fans too. One in the front (no LEDs) and one in the back (red LEDs).
