I used an i3 Dell 3521 prior to this which was gifted to me by my parents. It was used mainly for web development and UI design. Running applications simultaneously was not a rewarding experience. Gaming on the laptop was a pain and in almost all games the FPS was never above 40.
After 4 years with the laptop, I upgraded to this desktop with hopes of learning After Effects and 3D designing. But this time I managed to afford it all by myself. Unfortunately, the prices in Sri Lanka are a bit high compared to the global market. Despite this, I am really very happy with the performance.
Cooling: Looking forward to upgrading to a water cooling system for better overclocking. Right now the Cooler Master Hyper 212x does a good job even though it is a bit noisy at full load. (Temps on the details section). The Corsair casing was chosen because it comes with 3 fans, 2 of them are RED LED and a useful speed controller.
PS: Sorry about the poor picture setting.
Customizable BIOS and RGB LED. What more could you ask?
Amazing performance. The latest games run on an average of 60 FPS.
