i mainly use the pc for gaming, the 3gb vram is definitely a limitation but it is very good for most games. i built this in june but upgraded a little bit on christmas so i’m posting a new one. i am really happy with it for the 6 months i’ve had it

Part Reviews


great cpu for $130 CAD. easily overclockable and comes with an awesome stock cooler too. however, 4 cores isn't cutting it for me anymore and i will probably get a ryzen 5 3600x when they release.

CPU Cooler

really good cooler that keeps my ryzen 3 1200 under 60c on 100% load. i can never even hear it. only took a star off because idle temps are like 40c but might be my fault. really good cooler though, sooo quiet.


good motherboard with a lot of features (rgb header, 4 fan headers, etc) really good bios, easy to navigate, and cpu is easy to OC on it (ryzen 3 1200)


good ram 10/10 bought it for $210 which makes me sad since it is like $70 cheaper but that's how it be i guess


budget ssd, not bad load times but i regret buying a 120gb, was always running out


amazing ssd with amazing software. load times are fast (fortnite in 1 minute) and 500gb is pretty good


1tb for $50 pretty good value. decent load times

Video Card

3GB is quite a limitation on some games but performs really well usually. it is kinda ugly but as long as it's facing down it is good


i love this case. very beautiful, 10/10. cable management is pretty good and the headphone/cable puck it comes with is good too

Power Supply

good psu but i can't imagine if i didn't get non-modular. semi-modular is so nice, i can't imagine having a bunch of random cables lying around for no reason.

Wireless Network Adapter

awesome speeds and comes with bluetooth too, amazing performance and value

Case Fan

quiet and moves air. 10/10


i had this for 2 years until i upgraded to 144hz (no regrets) and use this as my 2nd monitor. bezels are really big and the power button on the right side is a negative, but good monitor otherwise


144hz is the best thing i've seen in my life. please buy this


loud but i guess it does the job for a keyboard


software is ok but the mouse is really good. i can sync the colours with my keyboard and it looks really nice.


sound quality is good for the price and wireless. battery life is also amazing. i only charge it when i'm away from my pc and it's on and it has never died on me.


AMAZING sound quality for $20. if you can get them on sale that's even better. really good speakers for the money


good mic, has lasted me 2 1/2 years and the cable it comes with is really long


really good for $20, hooks on well and i have no regrets.


awesome LEDs for $20. compatible with aura sync and mystic light

It sorta has this industrial look to it =D Also, I appreciate that you took the time to write up a review for everything, I'm thinking of getting a mic arm for my Blue Yeti, and your review on yours is actually a help. =D

thanks lol but about the mic arm it's really good for the price imo. there are obviously better ones but this one is amazing for $20CAD

DuoOne 1 point 3 months ago

Is there even a difference between cheap and expensive ones? They might be a bit longer, maybe stronger, but at the end of the day, they both hold the mic right?

nice build but i think you should have gone for a 580 8gb since its a little less money for better preformance +1

Bentheball1 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

yeah i considered that too but i guess it's a little to late now though haha
