My first time building a PC.
I'd watched a lot of YouTube tutorials to prepare for the build and thought everything would be quite straightforward, but alas I got stuck at cable management and AIO installation. It took me 4 hours in the end, but once I pressed the power button and the PC booted, I was the happiest person in the world.
Very good value for performance. Would definitely go AMD again for my future build.
As this was my first time using an AIO cooler, installation was a bit difficult. But thanks to YouTube tutorial, everything worked out well. My CPU is currently running at 33 degree Celsius in idle.
It works perfectly with everything in my build. The only minor complaint I have is the orange red LED which does not go with my build color at all. Had to disable it.
Set up the XMP (or DOCP for AMD) in BIOS and now it's running at advertised speed. RGB LED looks nice but the sync effect is a bit slow compared to other Corsair components.
It runs all of the games I want to play @60+ fps on ultra without making too much noise. I also like the LED display (wish I had gone for the RGB one to sync it with the rest of my system though).
The case looks absolutely stunning and provides lots of good cable management options. However, as I had to install 2 SSD and 1 HDD, finding a good spot to install them AND route cables through was a bit tricky.
Pro: It's very quiet and the build quality goes without saying, coming from Seasonic.
Cons: The two SATA cables are grouped together in a weird way, making it very hard for me to route them to my 2 SSD and HDD. Took me forever to set them up. PCIe 6+2pin cables are also grouped together while my GPU only requires one 6+2pin connector. I had no choice but to leave the extra connector just hanging at the front of my case.
