This is the first computer I've built and my first time on AMD. After almost 2 years of A convincing my Dad I need this computer and saving up money through a contract I signed with him I finally build this monster and couldn't be happier with it. I built it for Heavy 1440p gaming along with the 4k photo and video editing (and rendering). When I first started the pc everything looked fine but after a few hours, I noticed unstable frames from the fact that I had just carried over everything from my old hard drive, hadn't moved anything to my 960 and hadn't even reinstalled windows either. But playing games like Battlefield 1, frames are stable capped at 144 at max settings, hdr, and 1440p. My C27HG70 has mindblowing performance and colors even with HDR disabled! My ram had a 70% at idle issue which I fixed and for anyone who has a circular led thing on Cam for their Hue+, Cam thinks its a fan. My EVGA FTW3 really was worth the full 800$ as it has no sag and well it runs cool and quiet at(Probably the case just dampening most of the sound) 60C(CPU 55C-60C) on BF1. My Dark Base is just the best and the only reason I didn't wait for the 700 was really the amount of expansion it offered. While I was installing the H115i the IO cover was colliding with it and I may have been forced to buy a new cooler if I couldn't have moved the tray. The noise dampening is excellent and overall I don't see anything wrong with it. My power supply I was impressed with it until I saw the ******* cables. There was two of each and only two and the CPU, GPU and mobo cable were this stiff braid that made it even harder to try to cable manage. And the rest are all positive things to say so I guess All I can say is this is a good build for 2400. BTW I already had the optical drive and two hdd's(One of which failed on me). The silent wings and hue+ came free with my Dark Base. Edit(Christmas 2018): I changed all my peripherals after selling the old ones off and couldnt be in love with them more. I also decided to use a second monitor for increased productivity. Bad news is I got a vesa stand for 10 dollars that worked well but. The clamp wasn't big enough and in the end put a hole in my linnmon and collapsed.
Fast, Cheap (bought for 320 at Newegg on Black Friday) and just overall both a gamer's and an editor's dream.
Ran my CPU at 55-60C while playing BF1 max settings 1440p HDR. Quiet AF. Comes with an AM4 bracket too so yeah the 2only issue is Corsair Link is ****.
Good looking, Extreme Value, Feature packed in UEFI and in Windows. 4 stars because of a lack of accessories and cables along with a lack of USB 2 headers I mean really 10 sata headers and only 4 cables!! Also if you have only two headers for USB 2 then give at least one splitter
Looks great hits speeds on AMD. Some of the best Ryzen compatibility.
Lambo in an ssd.
Pros Looks Great Runs cool at around 60C Auto overclocks to 1922 when playing games Runs quiet No sag ICX Thermal LED Cons Price
MODULAR AF Looks great Quiet despite half of the case being honeycomb mesh. No PSU Shroud TEMPERED GLASS Lots of expandability Tons o accessories
Nothing wrong with it except a only two of every cable which is less than other PSUs and the fact that the big cables are covered in this stiff braid the makes them immobile.
Just buy it if you have the money there's nothing better especially if you have a amd GPU. But if you do have 2000 dollars to spend invest in a 4k 144hz monitor lol.
Only issue with this mouse is that its too good. Amazing sensor, comfort, build quality just great.
Great for $40 dollars. Comfy amazing bass and sub bass. Overall I like it.
My model was the barebones with aura caps and box Jades. Amazing quality with a good amount of metal. Would buy again(if they would put a detachable cable on the full size too).
Good median between control and speed
