My first computer was a pre-built Acer with an i5 6400 and a GTX 1050 which my parents got for me. I'm finally old enough to have a part time job, so I saved money to finally build my very own pc.
Very good cpu for streaming and gaming, but the stock cooler is terrible. At full load, my cpu reaches 83C. This doesn't affect performance as it still maintains a 3.6 ghz all core speed but I will definitely get a better cooler soon.
Bios layout is user friendly and hasn't given me any troubles. Recognized my memory with ease.
Fast, 16gb is the sweetspot for gaming.
Coming from a HDD that takes 2 mins to boot up and load all my apps, this did it in 30 seconds.
Really good value and performance, but runs very hot, the max temp I get is 84C but I only keep it at 60% fan speed because it's loud after that.
Cheap case with fairly standard airflow, I have all fans at max speed and the noise doesn't bother me.
Cables are really stiff but this was the only psu available at my town as I live 3 hours away from any major retailer.
