Wanted to upgrade from a 4 year old Toshiba laptop. This will be used for gaming and productivity.
The build went smooth, the only issue I had was the Spire cooler. That was a little scary, as I had to apply some force to get it on.
I bought most of my stuff at Microcenter, I highly recommend it for CPU+mobo combos.
Great bang for the buck CPU.
Works nicely with my Ryzen build. No issues
Does what it needs to do. Nothing special.
Cable management can be annoying, and the case fans cannot be controlled manually.
Has not blown up yet. The cables suck though, not recommended.
