Excited for the new build!
Pros: Fast, powerful, quiet, easy setup, low temps, solid build, case is big enough for any upgrades. Not too heavy, easy access. Clean cable management. Plenty if air flow! No bloatware!
Cons: The add_gen 2_1 cable head is very loosely connected to the cpu even after trying to plug it in better. The m.2 stick came partitioned in half for some reason so one 476gb partition, one 453gb partition. Really not sure why. Graphics card was pretty dusty on arrival Edit: graphics card ports are slightly blocked by the bevel of the back panel on the desktop case, doesn't change my 5/5 but i may either need to bend or snip off the section of the panel and that's pretty annoying.
Overall Review: On first run i was having graphics issues, just shoved the hdmi cable in a bit harder and everything is working as intended. Will need to purchase display port cables for my other monitors. Some cables came undone during shipping, this was expected, even the setup guide says to check them. Easy enough. Specs are as described 3070ti ventus 8gb - this one came msi brand i7-12700kf, liquid cooled which is hype! M2 storage is an msi m390 1tb which was unexpected in a good way. Very fast. Ram sticks are just okay, will probably upgrade eventually. 2x16gb chun well ddr4 2400MHz, at least they are sleek. Fans are very quiet Led options are pretty cool. Nothing over the top its nice Runs pretty much everything on ultra/psycho 1080p with rtx and dlss, 60+ fps no issues. tested on cyberpunk, bf2042, witcher3, no mans sky, halo infinite, basically any game should run well. Lastly im iust not sure what this tower thing is, it was nested inside the case. - see pic.
