My 9 yr old gaming pc finally couldn't be upgraded to keep up anymore. So I built this beauty over the last six months, yes I know I way overpaid for the hdd, **** happens lol. I used my original pc as a guide for parts since it's been running problem free for so long, coolermaster,amd athlon, and wd. I also don't personally like messing with oc'ing so I wanted out of the box good clock. A friend gave me a pc when he was moving so that's where I got the power supply and drives and, my parents got me the case for xmas, definitely helped with the cost. The first mobo I bought was a biostar hifi atx that had power but didn't work, even with an A6 fm2 chip, so that sucked. Then after I got the gigabyte mobo, the first hdd I tried worked for all of 5 min and then choked and i had to buy a new one. This pc has definitely been a pain lol but so worth it once I loaded up my games :) I can game for hours and it won't go over 26c ambient temp. BTW I've replaced and upgraded over the years but, this is my first complete build. This is my everything pc, but mostly for listening to music and gaming. I play sims, heavily moded elder scolls, all of them, HOMM 3,4,5,6, sacred 2 older but beautiful with these graphics, WOW, and soon to be adding many more. Note: the mobo is pretty great, wish I could've gotten a better pic, atx, 7.1 sound, lots of slots and rev.1 is compatible with all current fm2/+ cpu/apu o.o.t.b.
Love it, best budget athlon cpu, runs my games and my music at the same time while downloading updates in the background
Works, easy install, not too big and didn't block my ram.
It's ram, it works and looks nice.
Really quiet, hasn't gotten hot yet, works with no issues so far and it has a backplate :)
Great beginner case, room for some decent cable management, plenty of screws and fans, screwless drive bays, my only complaint is that the back expansion slot covers aren't replaceable once taken out.
Works great, I like semi vs fully modular, I'm weird I know...just one complaint, no freaking molex connectors! Which sux
Wireless Network Adapter
Works great, like that it can receive AND project a wifi signal, if you download the utility on the drive disc.
Noisy, the plastic cracks easy when screwing them down, but they're purple! It's saving grace
This is multi purpose which is nice, I wanted a card reader and this just happened to be the right price point. It makes cable management interesting though.
Awesome keyboard and it has a pink lighting option for my pink build! Rare to find. My one big issue, that I should've noticed before I bought it was that there's no music controls, sux. But that's my fault.
