I use this machine for Video editing on YouTube and for light gaming, Minecraft, Fallout, gears of War 4, etc.. I actually just got this build. I have the processor OC to 4.20Mhz and runs stable. The MSI 1070 ti graphics card isn't OC at the moment (Still searching for the best stable OC settings). I literally payed $625 for this complete build. Also includes RBG Led lighting. The original blue ring around the case has been painted silver; looks way better. The thoughts on the Red and Blue RGB lighting in the case and on the keyboard / mouse, is to reflect the conflict with Darth Vader (My favorite Character). Red for the Dark Side and the Blue for the Jedi Light side. Its a fun build that runs with these components fantastically. A great cost, for a good build.
PS.. Something I noticed, on the parts list price, it doesn't include the video card. I guess an average price new is around $489? as of this date, Thanks :)
Pretty fact CPU for it's age. It overclocked, runs very well. and stays cool wit the right cpu cooler. Decent CPU for its age
I have to give this CPU cooler some cred. It keeps the i5 I have running pretty cool and is decently quiet.
For a DDR3 LGA1155 Motherboard, It's works great! What can I say, it's a MSI, love taht brand!
Quick, and keeps cool with the huge heat sink. 16gb's is more than enough to do my task. I do light video editing for YouTube and it gets the job done, then some!
Its a small drive nowadays, but works fast and hasn't failed me yet.
I love this card. Fast and works well. Fans are super quiet, they don't even activate until right at 60ºc. Only thing I would say is Price. Its as you would think, in between a 1070 and a 1080, but leaning more towards a 1080. If the price is right, Get it. You wont be sorry.
You know, I hadn't heard of this model case before, but I have to give it some props. Its large enough for any of my upgrades. You can remove the middle HD cage to put in a huge graphics card, and It has plenty of cooling options. Only issue is the acrylic window on the door. I prefer glass (Less static etc) the rear panel comes out just enough for cable management. Overall: A very workable case that comes with LED lighting, Red or Blue The item # tells if its BR (red) or BL (Blue) LEDs in the two 140mm fans in the front. Also comes with one 120mm fan in the rear. You can add water cooling to the top. up to 280mm cooling. Black screens under to keep dust at bay. Decent ATX midtower case. Also has USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, along with a 3.5mm audio and microphone port, a power, reset, and LED fan lights off/on buttons on top of the case. 3 optical drive bays that are click in tabs.
