Description

I use this computer mainly to game and a little workstation use with virtual machines. At first when I checked the temperatures, I used a program that said my CPU was running at 200 degrees Fahrenheit no matter what I tried to do to make it run cooler. Then I tried a different program, and it said my CPU was running at 90-120 degrees Fahrenheit, which is a lot better and is something acceptable to me. Everything else runs very cool and the graphics card doesn't get above 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60 Celsius). I didn't really have any problems with drivers or installing Windows or anything on software. For hardware, though, I came to some tricky situations. Like I had trouble installing the side panels and then I found out you're supposed to put them on directly onto the case instead of putting it half-way in and sliding it in the rest of the way. Another problem I had with hardware is that I kept having trouble trying to install the CPU cooler. I watched this one video on how to install the Hyper 212 EVO with the X bracket, and I finally got the CPU cooler to install successfully. Those are about the only problems I had, and this system works great now.

Edit: Sorry about the HD Audio cable going across the middle, the cable was too short for it to plug in if I routed it. Again, sorry if you're triggered about that cable.. :(

That sucks. It could be possible that they just don't want you getting something that they think you might break. My parents made me build a practice computer (can be found on my completed builds) to see if I could build a computer before they spent so much money on this computer. Anyways, I wish you the best of luck of getting that RAM stick!

I feel bad for you. :(

But, thanks for the feedback!

PS: I hope you get a PC one day, or better yet be able to build one yourself! :D

Chromebooks aren't that bad in my opinion, I use them at school and they're not too bad. I wish you the best of luck to actually get a PC though, I do know some people don't have PCs, internet, family, friends, food, or even a home.

My main monitor (in front of me) is a DELL S2715H and my second monitor (on the left of me) is an ASUS VG248QE.

Did you have to get a separate bracket to for the Hyper 212 EVO to work on this motherboard? PC Part Picker gives me a compatibility note in my part list saying I might need a mounting adapter. Is that true?

A separate adapter comes with the Hyper 212 EVO in the box. I might add that it was a little difficult for me to get the Hyper 212 EVO actually installed on my CPU as well, so there's that.
