This build replaced an outdated FX 9590 build. I built it for heavy open world gaming, and video editing. The biggest objective was gaming and that's why I chose the R5 1600x. The NZXT Kraken cooler iss absolutely amazing. I stay under 40*C while spending hours playing Ark. Video editing is a lot easier and smoother with this system the my previous one.
Currently I'm gaming on a 32" vizio HDTV. Before I catch static for using a TV; it is a 1080P, 60hz monitor. I also have my Ps2 and a SEGA Genesis hooked up. I am planning on getting a 1440P monitor with GSync... Eventually. Hit me up with suggestions or questions.
Love. Love. Love this processor. Great price. Great processor. Admittedly I am an amd fanboy.
Great cooler and the propriety software, Cam, is very handy. I did have to go into bios and tell the system to ignore the CPU fan.
Great board. Super easy to use BIOS. Easy over clocking, and great fan control.
Can't hit 3200 Mhz but I also haven't oc'd them yet. It is compatible with Asus aura sync.
Life changing! I didn't know what I was missing until I upgraded to an ssd. Next is the M.2
It is a 1TB HDD. Not much else to add.
Brilliant! I absolutely tax this card with Ark and heavily modded Skyrim. I may be biased as I jumped from an AMD rx460 to this card.
I average 40 FPS on Ark, online, official server. No overclock.
Easy enough to build in. The SSD was interesting to install and same goes for the HDD. The can filters are an excellent addition. Overall great case.
Enough power to run this system. Zero issues.
