Hello again PCPP community. This build was done for my bosses son who was in need of a new gaming computer. Build was on a pretty tight budget of $1,400 including peripherals except for a monitor. He plays GTA, Warhammer Total War, ARK, and lots of simulation and strategy games. I had the GPU left over from my personal build that recently got an upgrade and seeing as he plays in 1080p it was perfect for the job. GPU is running with a +100 on the core and +250 on the memory and never exceeds 74C during heaven benchmark. Boot time is 13 seconds. The only thing that caused a little trouble is the lack of cable routing holes on the top side of the case. This caused a little creative cable management but it worked out. I don't have any pictures with the lighting kit installed but it provides a nice purple glow inside the case. I really enjoyed this build and everything is running perfectly so far.
Perfect for gaming on a budget. Single core speed is good enough to push around 144Hz depending on the game and the extra cores allow for some background processes without causing stutter in game.
Easy to mount and keeps the I5-8400 at around 55C during stress test. Matches the green theme of the build and runs almost silently.
Wifi works good and has plenty of features. Only complaint is for an "RGB' board it has very little built in lighting.
Works at the rated speeds without issue.
Boots into windows in 13 seconds and has plenty of space for OS and plenty of games.
Good place to store music, movies, and extra games.
Overclocks well and stays cool. It is a little louder than the dual fan models but that is to be expected. I only run EVGA cards due to the great quality and excellent customer service.
Great case for the price but I am taking a star for lack of cutouts above the motherboard for cable routing.
Provides more than enough good clean power for the build.
Loud but for the price I can't complain too much. The customer likes to still burn CDs and watch movies.
The only OS for gaming. A little on the pricey side but at least its 100% legit.
Works great and is nice and clicky.
Fits the users hand well and is accurate.
Provides plenty of light and is easy to install.
Adds a little extra flair to a build without breaking the bank.
