Updated and refreshed just in time for spring. I finally had time to install my Kraken X52 and was able to squeeze 4.1 GHz out of the CPU stable. No hiccups and very quiet when compared to my Cooler Master hyper 212 black edition.
Best bang for the buck for the average gamer. My last rig was running a 6600k which still performs really well today. The Ryzen 5 2600 is a decent upgrade and a great value for those that don't have deep pockets. You will see random temperature spikes with Ryzen CPUs but this is normal.
The slickest looking AIO for me that fits nicely with my build and keeps CPU temps pretty cool under load.
I was able to snag this for under $100 on Amazon during black Friday deals. Very easy to work with and the bios was super simple to use. You won't see too many micro ATX B450 motherboards available, this was one of the few that caught my eye right away and the price was too good to pass up.
Solid RAM. I was able to overclock this to 3466 MHz stable.
Not NVME but fast enough for the average gamer. Another black Friday purchase, great deal for 1 TB SSD.
Great GPU. I'm impressed with how cool and quiet this card is when compared to my old 980ti.
My favorite case to date next to my fractal design mini C. Very easy to work with and great cable management.
What can I say, it powers my set up nicely and it's fully modular.
