I’m sorry about the bad pictures. I’ve never been good at taking them.
I’ve wanted to build a PC since June, and I now got the chance to. I use it for gaming and web browsing. I get over 144fps most of the time (minimum seems to be 130) in Overwatch on Ultra Settings.
Coming from my mom’s old 2012 MacBook Pro, I was impressed. 144hz looks amazing from the second I pressed the 144hz option. I don’t really have much to say about it, for now.
Really fast CPU. With a GTX 1060 6GB, I'm getting really high fps in all the games I've played on my PC.
I've slightly tested the temperatures I get with this, but I remember them not going past 70C I'm pretty sure. Since this was my first PC build, it was confusing to assemble this. It also made installing the CPU power connector difficult, so for these reasons, I'm taking off a star.
It is a motherboard, it works. Not the best looking, but the brown parts have this (possibly unintentional?) design that looks nice. The LEDs look nice, even with a Hue+. Audio quality is not the best, so I’m using the Logitech USB sound card that came with my G430s.
It looks nice, and just works. I don’t have much to say.
Boots up into Windows 10 in under 25 seconds or so, really great. You can get a 250GB SSD for the same price, which is faster, but if you need the extra storage, then get this.
This was a HUGE upgrade from the Intel HD Graphics 4000 Mobile in my Mom's 2012 MacBook Pro. Paired with an i5-8400 and 8GB of RAM, I managed to get 150+fps in Overwatch on Ultra Settings, fully utilizing my 1080p 144hz monitor. Only problem is that it gets to 81C, but I looked it up and that seems to be normal for SFF (small form factor) GPUs.
Great mouse, its comfortable, clicks feel great, and can be used wirelessly. The side buttons work on and off (off for a few seconds, on for longer than that), but I use it wired, so its not much of a problem. There is a weird “split” on the mouse buttons, but once you use it for long enough, you barely notice it.
