Description

This machine was built for a friend of mine, he wanted to be able to Edit videos, Play any game that comes out at max settings, and do so under 3 thousand dollars. This build was very simple, as its my 5th build. The only thing that would qualify as a mishap was the Bios on the AM4 Crosshair. Its a pain in the but to setup if yours doesn't ship with the most recent update. But other than that, it was nerve wracking because of the price tag. When a single video card costs as much as your entire build you tend to get nervous about applying force to get it into the slot. I managed a modest overclock on the 1700 to 3.4 before shipping it off. Shipping this 56 pound behemoth was as much as $148.00 through Fedex and it arrived without a scratch! But I'll shut up now. Heres some pictures!

Part Reviews

CPU

Rock solid and a hell of a bargain.

CPU Cooler

LOVE this thing. Its easier to install over a push pull Corsair equivalent and the Lad's looks amazing.

Motherboard

Would add another star If the bios wasn't a bear to work with and if the Motherboard had another USB 2.0 slot. It only has 1. I needed 3. Has to buy the NZXT 2.0 Hub.

Memory

Solid modestly overclocked good looking memory.

Storage

I was surprised on the weight of an ssd. It weighs about as much as a phone case. Guess I'm just a noob.

Storage

It works, its cheap for the price to Mb comparison.

Video Card

BEAST! If you have the money I recommend this thing hands down.

Case

The only thing I have to knock this case is the clasps on the back for cable management are a bit flimsy at least when I got them, and when you install a HDD in the drive bays below you need to do it BEFORE you put in you PSU. Otherwise its unreachable. Otherwise, beautiful case!

Power Supply

See, on amazon I ordered the 750 G2 but I got the 750 G.... Otherwise the G is solid. Cables look pretty good for oem cables aswell.

Case Fan

The daisy chain is a bit confusing.. but once you consult the manual after swearing for a good 20 minutes they work!

Its very nice to build in, although with all of the Hue stuff and an internal USB2.0 hub back by the PSU its very cramped

NZXT hue is a very nice RGB light solution, but i went with a simple 5050 rgb strip for my build because in my country i.e India, this product costs around 110 dollars which is just not worth it.

Built for a friend, not built for the glory of my phone.
