This is my first build, and was nervous at first, it took a while, but it's worth it in the end. Now I'm making this post from the built computer, still downloading games as I'm typing. It was difficult hooking the water cooler onto the CPU, never seen that until building this. Fans are good, took a while until my brother and I figured out how to change their colors/themes. I don't know about other people, but I love the rainbow overload. I don't know if I'll end up sticking to a color/theme, maybe I'll see later on. Having watched a ton of computer building videos before building this made it easy, as if I've already built a computer before. My younger brother (16) and I (19) were the only ones working on this computer, taking us a total of about 3 hours to boot to the BIOS, and about another hour installing what is needed for now, mostly drivers. Now I'm just going to download all my wanted games and play them to see their benchmarks. Later, I'll overclock both the CPU and GPU, that's pretty much the only thing left to do, other than downloading games.
Not an expensive chip to start out with, and even then, you get a lot for a low price! You can always move up to the newer stuff when you can.
Don't think it's meant for a beginner, only problem I had was hooking it onto the CPU. Otherwise, everything else was good and easy.
Great mobo, wouldn't get it if I knew I would have a lot of RGB already, haha. A white/yellow flash would happen every time I switched my PSU on for testing, thought it was the PSU sparking for almost an hour until I saw it was the mobo.
Really good RAM, I'd pick this over RGB if you already have enough RGB lighting.
Pretty colors, and doesn't really get saggy being displayed (not sure if that's the case). Nice card, works amazingly!
Good case to fit all of these nice components. I have small-ish hands, and most of it was a breeze. Only problem was the 24-pin connector not being placed all the way through for a while because of the PSU's tape around it. Figured it was the 24-pin because the components would flicker when I moved it. I didn't find this as a problem, but I couldn't really fit the USB 3.0 cable through under its appropriate hole, but found out I could though another one, so make sure to know most of your cable orientation before buying!
Great fans, go great along with the ML240R RGB AIO, you can even plug it in with the AIO's controller.
Bigger in person, a nice primary monitor.
Nice as a second/third monitor, wouldn't have it as my primary though.
So far, audio is okay. I think I just have to get used to it since I haven't used headphones in years? According to my friends, the microphone sounds way better than what I had on my everyday earphones, so that's an improvement!
Awesome combo, keyboard is nice and not too small or too big. Mouse is perfect size, feels just like a Corsair mouse I used to own.
