Incredible budget case
Pros: -This case is beautiful, the dark tinted tempered glass is perfect and hides some of the cable management but this case also MAKES you do cable management so that your case looks beautiful. -This case is very easy to work in, but it would help to know which cables will go where before installing your power supply which I will talk about in the cons. -Case has front mesh which helps keep my pets hair from going into my components. -Perfect for showing off your custom cables.
Cons: -This is nitpicking but before installing your PSU you will want to insert your hd audio into your motherboard, sata cable and sata power (if you're installing and SSD) into the opening where the PSU will be. You'll want to do this since the PSU will be in the way of inserting these cables and you'll have to unscrew your PSU just to have the best cable management. -The HDD mount is installed vertically and this causes some rattling which is audible. -The HDD is visible since the mounts are on the cable management side. I wish you were able to add them under the shroud where the PSU is. -If you don't have custom cables and you're left with extra, you'll have to stuff the extra cables under the shroud but you'll have to do it in a way where the cable won't be seen in the front of the case since the shroud is not complete.
Overall Review: I really live this case. The cons aren't a big deal to me expect for the HDD being audible when being used but other than that, this is a great case. I can easily solve this by simply using SSDs but those are still quite expensive and HDDs are still extremely reliable.
Great for triple A games but with some issues.
Pros: -Able to hit constant 300fps (max) on Overwatch but on low settings. -Able to run recent games on medium settings getting 100+ fps at 1080p -Recent games at 1440 run at 60+ frames -Radeon boost helps you get the most out of your GPU -Extremely beautiful design, many people make fun of the "dent" but I think it's a beautiful blower GPU.
Cons: -This GPU run very hot and it is design to withstand that heat but it is still concerning as this is the first build I do and decided to go with this GPU. -It's a bit audible but it's a blower so you should know what to expect. -Got home tonight (10/17/2019) and I was in the mood to game, turned on my PC and noticed some weird white squares popping up at the edges of my screen. this was happening while just navigating through windows, chrome, and spotify. Thought it might be my monitor so I plugged in my laptop and was displaying just fine. So this I put the display port into the next output and this time my screen was flickering and the screen was going black. So I shut down my PC completely and re-installed the GPU. There was light flickering now but it was less than before. So I tried seeing how the output was on through HDMI but there was no signal going through and my second monitor (which uses HDMI) was just in a black screen. Went back to my main monitor and the flickering had stopped. I'm not sure was caused this but I'll be trying to fix this later on today as it's 10/18/2019 and I was spending all night trying to resolve this issue. -I've been using this GPU no more than a week and I've already experienced something that worries me.
Overall Review: The RX5700 XT is a wonderful GPU to get if you want 100+ frames at 1080p and 60+ frames for 1440. I used 1440 resolution to play single player games like witcher 3 and tomb raider on my 4k tv with HDR but since the HDMI on the GPU won't send anything through, I don't think I'll be able to do that until I find a way to fix it, which I'm not excited for. All I have done to the GPU is install it's drivers. I haven't Overclocked it so I know that the fault is not mine. If I could send this back for it's full refund, i would and would instead get the Red Devil RX5700 XT as I've heard many good things about that GPU. Don't be like me and go with aesthetics if this is your first build. If you're going to buy one of the best GPUs (IMO) do research and buy the one that will give you the least amount of headaches. The price MIGHT look appealing to some (even more when it's on sale or if it has a discount count code) but dont let that tempt you. Spend a few bucks more and get the Red Devil RX5700 XT.
