+ Total (United States):
This was my treat to myself after finishing Navy bootcamp. I reused the GTX 1080 from my old rig and built a new computer around it. Runs all games at max settings; couldn't be happier with the results and the look. I'm a firm believer in "simple lighting; let the parts speak for themselves", hence the white case and white leds. The only thing I'll change is I have a Corsair H100i V2 in my old rig that I will move to Gisela.
P.S.- Yes, all my computers are named after Magic the Gathering characters. I mean, even my son's name is Jace.
It's Intel. The temps are higher than AMD. Knowing that, it's reliable under load, just cool responsibly.
Bought this a temporary place holder until I moved over my AIO from an old rig. Works well enough where I might not have to.
Crazy easy BIOS. Recognized my flash drive had the operating system and did all the work for me. Looking forward to overclocking. Would definitely recommend.
It's RAM. Click it in, PC posts, all thumbs up. What more can you say about RAM?
I thought all SSD's were the same, but there's a noticeable difference in boot times compared to my other rig's Sandisk Ultra. It's not alot, but it's definitely there.
I've used a WD Black in every computer I've ever made. Will continue to do so until someone makes a more reliable HDD, but that'll be really hard.
Reliable frames on all my games at max settings and solid temps. EVGA is the brand for me.
Not a hard case to work in, but the holes were just a little too far for some of my cables so I had to get creative with my cable management. The fan controller for the leds in the fans had an extra cable for a ground that I had to leave unplugged to get the controller to work so that was weird, but its really nice having a remote controlled led switch included so it's worth the fiddling with. Other than that, beautiful case, clear and heavy glass panels, and all metal frame. Would recommend this case.
Got this monitor open box at Best Buy. It was a steal at $250, but it's worth the MSRP.
