Part Reviews


Best bang for the buck when it was first released, still makes me happy seeing all those threads. Chews through everything i throw at it.

CPU Cooler

Thermalright Macho B had lower idle and load temps, this was on sale and i had the coin.


Better than the B350M this replaced, no complaints at all, does what it needs to do and does it well.


Could be better, but it does well.


Damn fine SSD, fast and loads my games really really fast.


Fine for backups and mass storage.

Video Card

Does 4k High settings on most games above 30fps, excellent for 1440p High in most games while meeting or exceeding 60fps.


Best case I've ever used, in every way.

Power Supply

Hasn't blown up yet, modular is nice.

Operating System

Leave me alone Cortana

Case Fan

Moves a ton of air really really quietly.


Pure sex on these finger tips.


I liked the G403 better TBH


Keeps my **** safe, i dig it.


Who said gaming on a TV is lame? Not this guy.

In what ways could the WD Black NVMe flash drive be better?

bradenfontaine submitter 13 Builds 2 points 7 months ago

Maybe a low profile heatsink? Little dude gets hot af at times, being right up against the gpu.

Would the radiator and fans fit in front of the case ? Or would the GPU interfer with it? Also nice build +1

I tried, it fits with very little room left, but i found overall system cooling to be better with the rad mounted on top.
