As it says on the tin really due to cash flow issues I've been putting this together since black Friday. Only finished it today. Delighted with the build. I looked over deals and reviews constantly to make sure each piece complemented each other within reason and within my budget. I tried to get the best deal I could on each component. My only regret is that I had got the cpu and mobo before Kaby Lake came out but hey that's life. Delighted with the build otherwise. Had to send back the motherboard due to it arriving with a bent CPU pin and one of the system fans not working due to a fault on the mother board but everything running well now! Love the monitor.
I don't know how to caption the photos but they're fairly self explanatory.
1 & 2 Humble beginnings.
3 Pre cpu and gpu build.
4 & 5 Bent CPU Pin closeups.
6 Blown sys fan controller chip
7 & 8 Crap photos of completed build.
9 & 10 External photos showcasing my hangover clothes.
11 - 13 Benchmarks
This was my first build so I'd just like to say a big thank you to everyone here and on /r/buildapc on reddit for all the help!
Hasn't caused me any issues, bench marking well!
Had to send back one due to a blown sys fan controller and a bent spu pin so it losses a mark but the replacement has been perfect.
Don't know much about ram but this is supposed to be reliable and it's benching well so I'm happy.
My first SSD feels like lightening.
A nice storage drive it works and like everything else in my build it's benching well.
No problems so far. This is my first desktop so I've been using gpus built into laptops so far. Happy out but I've nothing to base it against.
Couldn't be happier with this case. As a first time builder I had no issues at all I love it. I got the non windowed at a great price too. Only drawback is the exposed topside but I'll buy a grate for that.
Got this cheap as **** on black friday. Nothing's gone wrong with it yet!
Still prefer windows 7 but I had to make use of DX12. It's fine I guess.
Wireless Network Adapter
Pretty quick speeds (100mbs down) two floors from router. Delighted.
Delighted with this! Really by far the best monitor I've ever owned. Going from the ****** TV I was using before to this was night and day. 75hrz IPS freesynch at this price, fantastic!
They work great for such a cheap combo.
