Description

This is my first build and attempt when it comes to building a PC. Overall, the process was much easier than I expected it to be. Everything worked well, and I faced no problems.

I got all the parts from Microcenter and they were a great help when it came to choosing good parts and what fits my budget.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great value. Hasn't let me down at all.

Motherboard

Great motherboard with multiple fan headers. Supports 3000 mhz ram. Looks nice and simple in my opinion.

Memory

Amazing ram. While not the cheapest, runs good with ryzen and is fast.

Storage

Does it says it does. Fast enough for what I need.

Storage

Great budget HDD. Decently fast as well.

Video Card

The temps on this thing are insanely good. I haven't seen it go past around 74 c. Runs everything at high-ultra with no issue. Software make it easy to overclock for those who want to. The RGB looks nice and the gpu it self looks really sleek. Stays quiet and has handled everything I've thrown at it.

Case

Looks nice and was pretty easy to work with. Has a lot of space. Airflow is good but can be improved.

Power Supply

Cables are black sleeved and look nice. Haven't had any issues with it.

Monitor

Great monitor. Has freesync which is super nice. Great image quality and the 75hz refresh rate is a plus. No issues with it. Great price for all the features.

Mouse

Incredible mouse. Very comfortable and the rgb is sick. No one talks about it which is a shame since it's an amazing mouse.

Other

Great keyboard. The brown switches sound great and the back lighting looks nice.

No the motherboard does not have wifi. I'm using an ethernet cable.

How's the mouse so far? I've been looking at that one myself, and I'd like to know how it's been for you so far before I buy it.

The mouse is actually amazing. The price can be deceiving because the materials feel very premium. The lighting is amazing and in the software you can change the brightness or speed for certain effects (8 effects). The wire is sleeved. Definitely an amazing mouse.
