Description

This is my first PC build. i wanted it to be a beast for gaming while being upgradeable with my setup. It will be a work in progress until everything is properly cabled, Synced, and optimized.

i think this build was a nice balance between RGB goodness and obnoxious.

The only problem I've run into with this build is being unable to control the RGB on my Kraken. (If anyone can help me find the problem, I will seriously paypal you money)

Still undecided on if I want to upgrade my fans/case, and what i want my color scheme to be for my MOBO and GPU cables.

Like I said I am a first time builder so i didnt know what would be good for benchmarking so i chose the first one that came up on google, UserBenchMark. The Scores

UserBenchmarks: Game 123%, Desk 110%, Work 106% CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K - 125% GPU: Nvidia RTX 2070 - 137.8% SSD: WD Blue 3D SATA M.2 1TB - 125.2% RAM: G.SKILL Trident Z RGB DDR4 3200 C16 2x8GB - 105.9% MBD: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E GAMING

Part Reviews

CPU

Easy overclocks and good temps for gaming. Great Deal!

CPU Cooler

Incredible temps out of the box. Only problems are with software and being unable to control the RGB without jumping through (what should be) unnecessary hoops.

Motherboard

Looks are clean, RGB is not too much, M.2 covers are impressive. Manual is easy to follow even for a first time builder like me. Backplate and board mounted in fine. Included WiFi antenna is actually useful in a pinch

Memory

Best RGB RAM both in terms of looks and performance.

Storage

INCREDIBLE Price/Performance. Especially for gaming and general storage use. Better reads and writes than a normal SSD. Will buy another in the future.

Video Card

Aesthetics and solid Overclocks. What more could you want?

Case

Easy to build inside. One star off for lack of airflow through front panel

Power Supply

Reliable, looks clean, included cables are well built. Good deal especially on sale.
