I use this PC for school, gaming, video editing and recreational use. This PC works exceptionally well and achieves high frame rates in 1080p High-Ultra settings. The PC stays rather cool with its 2 intake and 1 exhaust fan, plus a third party CPU cooler.

Great processor, handles heavy games (like Battlefield 1) with ease.
Very good cooler, is worth the upgrade from the Intel Stock Cooler. Amazing RAM clearance. Looks great. Though was very annoying to install. CPU runs at around 34-38 degrees C when just on the desktop, (Windows 10 + about 10 programs running in the background). And about 50-55 degrees under load, which is about 10 degrees less than the stock cooler. (I live in Australia though, and we are in summer at the moment.)
This motherboard is very good for the price. It has M.2 support, it's sturdy, looks nice, low profile, great BIOS, good surge protection. Though the I/O shield is a joke and makes the motherboard very hard to install, and who puts a fan header in the middle of the motherboard?
Great RAM, fast and reliable.
Pretty good considering the price. The speed is acceptable but the HDD does struggle on some newer games like Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2.
Amazing price:performance. Stays cool and is powerful.
- Low profile.
- Light up ASUS logo.
- No back plate.
Very good for the price.
Pros: -Looks good. -Nice side panel window. -Great airflow. -Room for big GPUs.
Cons: -Cable management is nearly impossible if you don't have a fully modular PSU. -The top of the HDD bay is visible in the window. -Only fits >150mm CPU coolers.
Great OS with a lot of potential, but very buggy and annoying.
Great, quiet fan.
