When I got the monitor, I was planning for an I5 7600k and a 1060. I ended up selling my old PC I had at the time (FX8320 with a RX470) and had gotten enough from that to go with the 7700k and 1080.
I didnt have any issues when building, but I used generic sticks of ram without any fancy heatspreader or anything like that on it.
added more photos. also took some of the back wiring. it's a mess, but there isn't much I can do. I'll probably work on it some more here soon.
I tried to take the sticker on the front off, didnt work so well.
it's only 60hz when above like 1280x960 or something like that. and it really doesn't like to not be in the 2560x1080 resolution. I bought it under the impression it was 2560x1080 at 75hz. kinda wish I would have did a little more research.
I got a question about the case, how does it mount the PSU? I see it's in the top, but does it have the fan facing down, acting like a top exhaust?
thanks. the real problem I had with going with used parts, is people around me think they have a gold mine when it comes to used parts. They look up how much the part was when new, and ask for that, not realizing there is newer stuff at a cheaper price available. I don't care how old it is or how well it works when I can get something that's brand new and better performance for cheaper. It took me a bit to get all the parts together, havung to find them a d then wheel and deal with the sellrr, but I made it happen
lol. I built it for my buddy Mike, so I just call it Mike.
