Description

This is my first build, I'm still working out some kinks but seems pretty stable at 5 Ghz and the Video Card overclocked pretty well. I feel like I can push it farther but stability was the goal. Maybe one day I might delid the CPU and GPU to apply some new thermal paste but for now it works pretty well.

The game runs fortnite pretty well, it's really not that impressive as a gaming system. I think the video card is the bottleneck, a 1080Ti and 20XX+ might be in the near future to play any game on ultra but it works for the most part. Honestly console gaming is WAYYYYY cheaper than PC gaming, but I'm curious how well this thing can handle VR gaming.

Part Reviews

CPU

It's pretty stable at 4.8 Ghz with a good intercooler.

CPU Cooler

It's a pretty decent cooler, some extra fans in a push/pull configuration would make this thing beast. Pretty quite too.

Motherboard

Pretty decent board, nothing too fancy, RBG lighting is nice but not over the top.

Memory

I got it to overclock to 3200mhz, stable but idk the temp because that's the biggest flaw of having a non-heatsink design but a good flowing case should work out ok.

Storage

Boots up the system pretty fast, wish the 1TB versions were cheaper.

Video Card

I overclocked it to 1800mhz and temps stay pretty cool. I recommend a watercooler card like this if overclocking is your thing.

Case

I missed out when this thing was $75, it's a pretty nice case, not a whole lot of room for video cards length wise so make sure you check ahead of time. Cable management is pretty nice and airflow is on point.

Power Supply

A solid power supply, I missed out when it was on sale for $40 but it works for lower end gaming.

Case Fan

They light up pretty well and are really quite, wish they were a little cheaper though.

On 4k?

I've still got a 4690k/gtx970 and it will run Fortnite at 60 in epic settings.

I think it's got got like maybe 5 or 6. I only use 3 fans plus two that are attached to the cooler.
