Description

This was a major upgrade from my old gaming PC and it was a blast to build. I wanted something green, and it turned out pretty well. Love everything about this PC, Threadripper is definitely on my shopping list!

don't worry, it's only on the carpet temporarily

I wasn't really paying attention, but I really paid $255 for the GPU, the list I used had some random price from some crazy store

Part Reviews

CPU

Very smooth and fast chip! Overclocking was a breeze, AMD never disappoints! Great CPU for first-time builders and for those looking for an upgrade, it'll last a life time.

CPU Cooler

Replaced the stock fans with Corsair's SP120 Green LEDs and they worked like a charm, temperatures were amazing. I used a push/pull configuration on the top of my case and it was easy to install. Great AIO! Worth the extra 20$ compared to the H80i.

Thermal Compound

Best thermal compound out there. Works as intended.

Motherboard

Very stylish and eye catching motherboard. LEDs are customizable, and the BIOS was super clean and easy. Just needed to update the BIOS to get the RAM to the right frequency! The carbon fiber on the board looks great with a black or white case.

Memory

Had issues with the frequency but all it needed was a little update and it worked great. Phenomenal lighting and customizable sequences, RAM can't get any cooler than this.

Storage

Had this for a lloonnnng time, never failed, boots fine, very reliable.

Storage

Very affordable and performs well.

Video Card

One of the coolest and coldest GPUs I've had in my life. Can run every game I throw at it with maxed settings on a 1080p/144hz monitor. Bought it as soon as it came out, the software was crazy, but it improved. Lighting is okay, but not something I was worried about. 8GB is plenty!

Case

Where do I start? This case has to be one of the best cases out there. A ton of space to work with and the cord management is flawless. LEDs are amazing and sleek. The design is simple and geometrical and comes with a PMW hub that helps a lot. VERY customizable and can support custom water cooling, which I plan on trying later on in life. The LED strips and sleeved cabling is totally worth the money. It has everything you want in a full tower case!

Power Supply

Reliable, universal, and it's modular!

Optical Drive

Loud, but what do you expect? More and more cases are getting rid of their driver bays in the front, soon the DVD/CD drive will become the new floppy disk ;)

Case Fan

Great fans! If you don't care too much about the noise, these are perfect! Can't hear them through my headphones and they keep my entire case cool.

Monitor

Great monitor for the price! 144hz is beautiful and it can be mounted!

Keyboard

Fantastic keyboard! Feels good, looks great, and syncs with your gear!

Mouse

Responsive and highly recommended for people who grip their entire mouse.

Headphones

A little uncomfortable at first, but once you break them in they're just fine. Fits nice and snug and can also work with a phone or tablet. The 7.1 Dolby Surround sound is totally worth the investment and the software is pretty clean and easy to use.

Custom

Bright as the sun and they can sync with the motherboard and your case!

Custom

Very professional look, combs are a must!

Custom

Fast and reliable! The sleeved look is a plus!

For $400 you could have gotten a 1060 6GB or 1070 if you looked hard enough.

Please no, you payed $400 for a 480? A GTX 1080 is only $100 more and 50% faster!

Link to where you bought that Video Card from?

Good thing you said $255 was the price, because $399 scared me!

I bought this card around Black Friday, it was the only part that moved on to this build :) so it doesn't look like they're selling it from Amazon anymore :/

Did you have any problems with the mobo getting in the way when you mounted the AIO Rad on the top?

  • 28 months ago
  • 1 point

No, I placed the fans on top of the case, which is not instructed in the case manual, but other than that, it was a breeze! Refer to picture #7 on my completed build.

just wanna make sure I got this you got 5 fans at the top 3 very top and 2 below the cooler then 4 in the front 2 replacing the big 140 and 2 more right behind them and then the 140 at the back

the air flow is going through the front and out the back and top?

Can you turn off the LED lighting that is built into the case? I saw the switch to change RGB on the front panel, just wondering if there's an off position. I'd like to be able to run stealth without any lighting.

Yes, you can. These cases have instructions that tell you how to use the lighting.
