I use this computer for all of my gaming and web browsing needs. It works great and hasn't given me any problems except that this is the first time I have ever had an SSD and I have not figured out how to move my OS to it without wiping my computer. If there are any questions feel free to ask
I used this CPU in my last build and I planned on going for a 8350 but I chose this because of my budget. This CPU has done me well in the past and has done me well now. I even dropped it and bent the pins and had to bend them back and it still works! (whew)... I overclocked my CPU to 4.00 Ghz last time and I wanna push higher if my cooler will be able to handle it. I am not very good at bench marking or telling differences between overclocked and non so I don't really know what to say other than this is a great CPU for the price.
This is my first Cooler Master product and I love it! It is not as quiet as my DeepCool CPU cooler I used on my last build and the led's are kinda worthless but it does exactly what I want it to, and I plan to overclock in the future. It is especially quieter than the stock CPU fan and I'm glad.
I love Asus! That's probably why they get a nice 4 stars.. But I know that they make good boards and that's why I chose Asus, this board is beautiful and has nice RGB lighting but one thing about that is the RGB lighting near the logo at the bottom right is covered by my GPU which kinda disappoints me. This board has dealt with my punishment because I am a clumsy builder as you can see in the CPU review I dropped it. But otherwise great board.
The MSI Gaming X... a beautiful card and very nice lighting... But no backplate (cries). I know this is a budget card and I don't mind there being no backplate I just wanted to say that. This card does great, but I do notice screen tearing which I do play games at high settings, well I don't mind it but that is just a thought. This card does great on playing most of the games I own, a lot of them AAA games at high settings. That is all.
This is a very good case and I love the fans that came with it. I paid only $60 for it and I get quality. NZXT is my go to for cases, I love the modern and simple look, it really brings out the inner components. The cable management in this case was easy and I think I did a great job on hiding the cables. (hidden in the back where it's a disaster) :)
