I use this mainly a gaming PC but I also do my programming homework on it. I've recently gotten into PC gaming after owning many consoles. It took a while to get used to, but now the keyboard/mouse combo on FPS games just feels natural. I spent many hours here on pcpartpicker researching and preparing for this build. Tried to cable manage as well as I could. Overall, I love the rig. I originally started with a Corsair H60 to cool my 7700k, but it runs so hot when overclocked that I had to upgrade. Future plans include a hardline custom water loop(pretty soon). I will update frequently. Stay tuned!
I love this thing. Overclocked very easily to 5.0ghz at 1.3v. The only downside is the heat. Looks like Intel didn't do a great job with the IHS and the thermal interface material. I'm delidding and replacing the paste with Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. Maybe pushing the OC afterwards.
Awesome board. Looks great. Build quality is good. The only thing that I could complain about is the MSI Gaming App used to control the LED. Not the best.
Awesome. I intially had some Corsair Vengeance LED but they were too tall for the 400c to fit a radiator up top so I switched them out. I like these though. They look clean and sleek.
By far the best $140 I spent. My system boots up in less than 10 seconds. I love it. The drive looks nice in black/red.
Just salvaged from an external drive. Using it for storage until I can buy something better.
This card is great! It stays super cool. When not under load, the fans stay off so it's quiet. Running 90-100 FPS on BF1 on Ultra. I love it.
I love this case. I would give it 5 stars if it weren't for one issue. The manual says you can run a 240mm rad up top. Yeah you can, but you can't mount any fans. I had to switch to lower profile memory, and I still couldn't use the factory rad mounts. Other than that, I love it. Looks awesome. The side panel comes off for easy installation. The psu cover hides the wires and HDD cage.
No complaints about this power supply. Fully-modular helps so much with assembly and cable management.
