Project: Archangel is my first pc build. I use it for gaming 95% of the time, other other 5% is for work, or other tasks. While building it was easy for the most part, however the motherboards bottom right corner has no standoffs, it just kinda hangs there. The only other notable issue is because of the 8pin connector for the GPU and using the stock cables from my PSU, there's now an ugly 8 pin connector just dangling doing nothing.
To start the list of reviews, the Ryzen 5 2600 is great, I haven't had any issues using it. It's also by far (at least to me) better than my old i7-6700hq, from my laptop. The stock cooler also works quite well for me. I haven't had issues with throttling, or overheating.
The MSI b450 Pro-VDH is great, I love the UEFI, to me the only real issue is theirs no 5v 3 pin RGB headers, so I could have used another set of fans, and had them all sync to software. For the price I would recommend this MOBO to anyone looking to build a Ryzen system. (I had bought it for $90, on a sale)
The RAM is RAM. I don't have issues, its fast, it works. It's also low profile so I can upgrade down the line.
The 860 EVO, is up there on my favorite pieces of tech. I love it. I haven't had any issues, its incredibly fast, and it works so well. I used to have it in my old laptop, but having it in this power house is even better.
The hard drives work. I don't have any issues with them, they are both old, and I need to format them, but I also don't want to cause I'm too lazy to re-download all the games I have on them from the past.
The RTX 2060, I have to say this is one of the best parts I've ever had. It's stupid fast, not quite as powerful as a 1080, but still better than the 1070TI I was going to get. Coming from a GTX 960m, this card is insane. I have never gotten such high fps ever. At the price that it is, I would have difficulty not recommending this card.
The case is pretty, I'll give it that, the amount of glass looks amazing, however HEAVILY restricts the air flow. almost to the point where I'm ready to just take off the top glass, and the front panel. The air flow I get is enough to keep my PC below 80C, but I still had hoped for better temps considering I have 4 fans installed right now.
The power supply works, I got it as a gift from a friend, I haven't had an issue, other than the one stated above. The 8pin connector has 2 connectors, and I wish there was an option for just one 8 pin connection wire.
The fans are good, for their price I don't think I could have gotten anything better. $50 for 5 fans, and a controller. The only issue I have with them is that they use an RF remote. Because of that I now have 3 RF remotes!
My speakers system is what I found in my parents basement. Being 15, I had been saving money for probably 3-4 months of working to afford all this (Mind you I also REALLY like to eat out). So I would have had to wait a lot longer to get the system that I have. (I love my 12" sub woofer). We had ripped the fronts off of the speakers on my desk, and painted them white, since before they used to be an ugly blackish brown. They look so much better now.
My keyboard is the Logitech G910 Orion Spark, it works great, I love it, however I HATE the software they use now, the Logitech GHub is absolute garbage. Every time I open it gives errors. I'm glad I was able to re download the old Logitech Gaming Software.
For my mouse I have the Steelseries Rival 650 Wireless. I have always been a fan of wireless mice. I used to use the Logitech g602, however this one is much more comfortable, and pretty.
My Microphone is the Marantz pod pack 1. It works extremely well, and I love it. I really don't need something so good, since I don't stream, or create any content. But my friends are all way happier than before from my old headset mic.
To close the part list reviews, with my headphones being the Sennheiser HD 559's. With my laptop I had used an adapter to use these, till I realized I could plug them into my speaker systems amp, and from then on they have worked so well, that I can't go back to not using an amp. They are decently comfortable, however after a while of using them, I do get jaw pains from them being tight. I would loosen them, but then they wont fit any better, they would just dig into my jaw more. If you have big ears its nice though because they won't sit on your lobes.
