thermals looked great from what i could see! Really not a bad motherboard. are you able to adjust the ram speed? I just noticed it was rated for 2133, but you had 2666. i didn't watch the whole thing just kind of glossed over for the key parts.

I am interested in this as well. I was going to pickup this Mobo, but was worried when I saw it was only rates for 2133 ram.

-Thanks!

Its named after a weapon, instantly making it awesome. I particularly like the bazooka and the a68 grenade :D

Never touch the bottom of your Motherboard. the oil can short out the mobo eventually although it is only a 1 % chance it is still a chance

That is the sexiest B series motherboard I've ever seen

Good, but not enough storage, considering you only have a SSD there, but it's quite a nice computer, probably can run ultra settings at 60 FPS at a 1080p

Says they use a b150 because they aren't overclocking, then proceeds to use 2666 ram. Just be honest and say we're using what we're using because that's what the manufacturer wanted us to.

You mean like in the beginning of the video where we say that MSI and Corsair provided the parts for the build?

Would this PC preform well with MMO's and MOBA's? I am looking run Legion ultra settings on a 27" 1080p monitor.

what do you guys do exactly with the builds u make

Never built a computer before and was wondering what was wrong with the stock case fans. I'm guessing that they were just cheap fans that were noisy, didn't move as much air, and didn't look as good?

Also, why did you use the af 120 and the sp120. could you have used the same fan for all 3 positions?

Actually, the case fan installation was as far as I got in this video before I decided I needed to get some sleep for work the next day.

I think we have something like that planned but it won't be for a while. We still have lots of things to build out.

I had the same exact thoughts it would be awesome to see a PC Part Picker version of MTV Cribs.
