Description

I built this machine earlier with the stock cooler, different case, different power supply, a GTX 750Ti, and horrible cable management. It was the fist PC I built and since then I have got significantly better. My monitor is only 60hz so i get 60fps on most games with maxed settings at 1080p including GTA 5, DOOM, World of Tanks, Fallout 4, Fortnite(wow), Fallout New Vegas(even more wow). I do regret getting a Founders Edition Card as it is pretty loud. The case is amazing and I have not found anything wrong. I plan on upgrading to 16gb of memory, that is why I opted for 1 8gb stick instead of 2X4gb.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Great cooler

Motherboard

I wish it had more pcie expansion slots because it only has one 16x and a 1x but other than that it is a good motherboard

Storage

Its faster than a hard drive and it works

Video Card

Great when you buy for cheap used but a bit loud

Case

Amazing Case, Well construction and well thought out layout

Case Fan

Nice and quiet ahhhhhhh, but the cables are a little short

If you are unhappy with the reference card, i would get the kraken add on with a liquid cooler and do a 120mm liquid cooled card :) only recommendation. I think there is also an after market dual cooler for this card, just can't remember the name.

Do you mean this NZXT GPU bracket? The Kraken is a cooler that you can attach to it.

The Arctic Accelero? They're huge, but cool and quiet especially compared to a reference cooler. Good option if you're not into liquid cooling.
