This is my first build and it's awesome (but in some parts not so much). I play mostly Overwatch. I'm not that much into games that much, but I'm a frequent casual gamer. I wish I had spent more money on the SSD and the HHD and the monitor, well, we all want something better but if I had the chance I would change those first in no particular order. I ordered most of the parts off of Amazon, big mistake! Go to your local Micro-Center, they usually have better prices and good bundles that will save you a ton. If you're looking for a case that can mount a 240 mm radiator, good luck trying to fit your motherboard in. I also think I got the wrong Windows 10. There is a one that's cheaper, but too late. maybe it's my unit but I could only overclock it to 64 Hz which was a big let down. I used the Nvidia Control Panel and created a custom preset with 1440p and 1080p. I could not get over 64Hz, maybe I'm doing something wrong so if you know whats going on please tell me!
+I got PSU extensions, so it looks better (September 2017)

Very good, maybe it's because I paired it with a liquid cooler (I'm a AIO scrub). Have not overclocked my whole system yet so fingers crossed my unit is good.
I'm a noob at PC building soooo I kind of brushed my arm against the thermal compound. My PC has been running for a month (not continuously) and my CPU has not gone over 58 C (an estimate).
If you're not a RGB fanatic and a fan of the STRIX line-up (I don't know why you'd like STRIX but not like RGB) this model only has a tiny RGB light strip on the top right under the board + it's not too expensive.
Good RAM, 10/10. Pepe/Pepe's mother.
Good for the price, 10 more GB than the rest of the SSDs at around this price point.
Go for a Barracuda, only a couple more dollars than this product but double the space.
Very gooooood, haven't overclocked but it can stand up to 1440p at 60Hz (yes my crappy 60 Hz monitor) in Overwatch. +Some 1070 prices are going up so why not just go for a 1080.
It's cool, wish I went for a NZXT Elite in White though. The Elite's inside of the case is nicer. If you're getting this case go for the TEMPERED GLASS model. I scratched the plastic window when building the PC. It isn't very good quality, it got scratched on the corner of a cardboard box, but also my fault for not putting the panel away.
WOULD BUY AGAIN FOR FUTURE BUILDS It's AWESOME!!!!!!!!
There is a cheaper one, I accidentally bought this more expensive one. fml
I have the LED white ones but this is what they have on this website. The fan is just white LEDs pointed at translucent fan blades. If that's you good. I covered the LEDs with black electrical tape because the LED still shows from the outside. The fan still lights up it's just a cleaner look form the window.
My unit only overclocked to 64Hz (from 60Hz), I saw a review on Amazon where a guy overclocked it to 80Hz, I'm mad. I did it through Nvidia Control using a custom preset with 1080p and 1440p and I still couldn't get it past 64Hz. If you know whats wrong please tell me.
But I got what I paid for so ya
Very good, enough programmable buttons through the software in all the right places
For like 10 dollars more you can get a HyperX Cloud Cores at which is like the HyperX Cloud IIs but a little bit worse, but nonetheless they are very good.
