Description

Overall this is a great gaming machine. I can play Rust, Apex Legends, Fortnite, CS:GO, with max settings, - It has a 3DMark score of 4200 on Time Spy Extreme - The CPU is capable of running over 300+ mods at once on Minecraft along with the game itself - A lot of room for upgradability, I can add one or two NVME SSD's, more RAM modules and I can swap out the card for the same thing or better.

There have been no problems whatsoever with the computer, and it is a great entry-level gaming computer and productivity such as some editing.

One issue would be the acoustics. I believe the computer can run loud due to the fact that there are only 2 case fans and no other fans to keep the computer thermally sound, I will probably add more case fans along the line but overall if you have noise canceling headphones you will be hunky dory. NOTE: it does not run as loud as you think, it can run loud depending on what you are doing though.

Part Reviews

Case

Very good looking case with a nice customizable RGB strip for the front panel. The tempered glass panel gives the opportunity to have breathtaking views of the parts making it the perfect case to add RGB LED strips which I've done. The cable management is amazing to do in this case you can easily hide most of your wires. One downside, however, is the case only comes with one intake and one exhaust, which is alright for idling and watching youtube but can heat up quite a bit during gaming and productivity work.

Peel that Intel sticker off the white background and then put it on the case.

Nice build! Only thing is that your graphics card may not be able to handle ALL games...especially with that 3 gb of gddr5 video memory. At the price range you went for, you would probably be better off with a Radeon card; they have better performance in the price range of your GPU. You left a lot of room on your PSU, so you might be able to pull off an upgrade to a 2060, especially if you are aiming at a 1080p instead of a 4k monitor. The 2060 is probably the best at 1080p, as it is on the threshold of the 1080-4k gaming mark, and also it is a relatively new graphics card that can take advantage of the soon-to-be widespread use of ray tracing in games. Overall, very nice build, I love the color of the fan!

Looks better to me. I suggest that u can use the stock cpu cooler with 2600, get a better b450, and maybe get a RX580.

For that new list I would change gpu to something there then a armor card or blower, ditch the a400 since it slows down alot, and psu

SSD: team l5 3d 240gb or 120gb

GPU: 580,1660, or Vega 56 or rtx 2060, note a Vega 56 is around the same speed as the 2060.

Psu: cx or cxm 550w or 650w for Vega 56

imo you should spend more on gpu and ram, such as GTX1660Ti or higher and 3000mhz or higher ram. Or another way is that you can save your money on the cpu and motherboad, such as 9400F+B360 or 2600/2600x+b450.

it looks good but you should have gotten a better gpu like atleast more than 3 gb of memory on that gpu
