Hi Guys! This is my first ever mini budget gaming rig. I prefer mini because I work abroad and it is much more easier to carry if it is a SFF rig. I live also with roommates and somewhat stays awake late at night. so it was a perfect fit on my bed.. haha!
Performance: Mostly AAA games are on 44+ fps (Ex: Witcher 3 WH, Rise of the Tomb Raider) at 1080p max settings. its fine by me. Non-demanding games like World of Tanks, Dota 2, CS:GO, will run 80+fps on all Max...
Its been a month playing with it and there are no problems detected.. i'm happy with it.. :)
Added 1 more 1TB HDD.. Improvised a bit since the case can only handle 1 2.5"... ; )
Since its a budget build i started on a i3 skylake proc.. works fine with the GPU. Gonna wait for the next gen cpu arrives then I'll upgrade to i7-6700(non-k) in the future.
The only thing available at that time, the Z170N is much pricier. Not a fan of OCing so i think this is a good choice.
Cheapest and high rated HDD out there. planning to add a SSD later.
I chose the 3gb model because the 6gb is almost double price in our place vs the 3gb..
Pros: Works like a charm on 1080p max settings. In terms of price to performance on FHD resolution I think this is the best budget card to buy.
Cons: Card runs hot.. @ 80c on full load using furmark for 15mins.. Fan is abit loud too on 100% speed.
Nice SOLID case IMO. Components are well spaced from the PSU. Temps are a bit high probably because i still don't have a 120 or 140mm fan in front. I thought it would bend since i put my 32inch LED TV at top but nothing at all..
Update: Cable management done!! Unused cables are located at the side of the PSU. Put a 120mm Intake fan on the front too. Still have space below for an Additional SSD in the future. :)
Well-known brand, enough power for the GPU. Its non-modular but if you got some effort in managing the cables, it will be fine for any case.
