After going through random HP/Dell/Acer and other laptops/desktops of the like...every year or 2... I decided to build my own computer that would be great for gaming, speed, looks, and expanding in the future. I will never buy another prebuilt desktop again, you get so much more for your money building it yourself! A few weeks ago I didn't even know what a stick of RAM was...but after countless hours/days of youtube tutorials and reviews, I feel like I have some sort of computer degree. Definitely a fun process and I can see how it could become addicting with all the extra leds and customization on the market....but a very expensive hobby. I'm now trying to think of reasons to build my wife her own PC... even though she probably doesn't know how to turn one on. Anyways, Hope it last me a long time.
my temperatures and numbers I listed were obtained during the Heaven Benchmark at extreme settings. I still have a lot of learning to do when it comes to overclocking so I keep everything at what I consider "safe"...for now.
I'm just happy the thing turned on haha.
zero complaints - RGB is adjustable any way you can imagine, fans are quiet, pump and fan curves can be adjusted easily in the app. I'd buy again for sure (as of now).
look cool... there's many different rgb options like flashing, comet, rainbow, etc... but I just leave them static.
As some others mentioned either on here or some other reviews I read.... the fan will rub against a wire when it first starts up. I checked this prior to installing by just spinning it with my finger and it did it on mine as well. I tightened all the screws and just barely moved the wire as much as I could (0.0010 mm?) and that's all it took. No longer makes contact.
Case is great and built with expandability in mind. I had all my parts ready to go in before I realized that I'd have to purchase a second ssd tray. If you have a 360mm radiator as an intake, the hdd sleds are to be tossed in the trash and you need to purchase a separate tray to put your hdd in also. That set me back a few days and extra $$...should have just been included.
cant beat this for the price. I basically just bought it for photoshop...where I can be clicking a mouse 50-100xs a minute and don't want to annoy my wife in the next room. It is extremely quiet...even the mouse wheel doesn't make a "clicking" noise when scrolling.
I had the A40s to begin with and I loved them. Upgraded to the A50 for obvious wireless reasons and I still love them.... they do seem a little heavier or built different... the top of my head will start to hurt after about an hour of use, not sure why. I have this issue with both the cloth and pleather pads. Also extremely convenient with a ps4 and pc. Plug the usb into your pc and the optical cable into the ps4, easily change between the two with the flip of a switch on the base station. I'll never go back to wired even with the slight discomfort.
fing amazing bass. extremely loud. BUY THESE!
