You can't beat the value of getting case and motherboard and water cooler all in one neat package, and everything was of good quality. The only cons are those to be expected when dealing with small form factor systems. It is cramped. Plan ahead on how to get everything installed, especially the cables, because once that cooler goes on, you're pretty much locked in unless you have very thin hands. All the expected drivers came on a rather hefty USB flash stick (which I will certainly repurpose to add a backup image) and installed without a hitch in Windows 10. Wireless works great, cooler works great, fans work great, all in all this is an excellent product.
Fair warning: NO DVD DRIVES ALLOWED. There's no where to stick one. Buy a USB-to-SATA adapter or an external drive if you need to use disks for any reason.
1. Great case -- looks great, and just a bit bigger than a game console.
2. Straightforward build.
3. Good price for this bundle.
4. Included WiFi on the mobo (was pulling ~8MB/s from Steam).
5. Just add CPU, GPU, RAM, and SSD.
1. The included fan splitter wouldn't operate one of the fans. Until I replace this part, one of the fans runs full speed, generating lots of noise.
2. Build does not come with a internal speaker, which became a problem when it wouldn't post. Turns out the issues was that it would not post with Intel 7th Generation Kaby Lake processors (e.g i5 7600k). Switched out for an i7 6600k and it worked no problem.
3. BIOS was unaccessible until I flashed it.
4. Gigabyte software is, frankly, terrible.
All-in-all it seems like my biggest problems were with the motherboard, so hopefully future revs can iron those details out.
My build: $1,145.22
i5- 6600K over clocked to 4.3 ghz
G.SKILL 32GB (2 x 16GB) Ripjaws V Series DDR4
Samsung 950 PRO Series - 512GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD
I had a new gtx 970 that I got when on warranty one of my gtx 770 burned out in my 3 way sli rig. So yoiu will need to add the cost of a video card.
The video shows off the hardware as you'll receive it, as well as giving my impressions of it. Below are more details and highlights. I wanted to show off what you'll get, and then update my review later with how well it's working for me with my specific choices of hardware to put in. I'm going with an Intel Core I5-6600K CPU, Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz memory, and one or more Samsung 850 EVO SSDs with Windows 7 or 10 (haven't decided, yet).
Overall, I'm quite happy so far. While it looks funky to me in the photos, I think the case looks nice in person. It's also very functional, with ventilation holes all around for good air flow. Corsair did a great job with installing the internal hardware, including the power supply and motherboard, as everything feels rock solid without any rattles or anything. It came packaged very securely, too. I was nervous when FedEx showed up with just the original box and no external shipping container, but it arrived in perfect condition.
For those of you who aren't as experienced with building your own computers, a barebones kit like this that comes with the motherboard and power supply already installed is a really nice option. While computer pieces are kind of like Legos these days and are pretty easy to put together, it still takes some care to get everything put in properly. Also, you definitely need to do your research to make sure that your parts will all fit together and work together. With this kit, that's all made a lot easier. Corsair already selected a good (IMO) motherboard and power supply, and they installed them for you to save you any stress about breaking something.
Here's what you need at bare minimum to make this work:
(*) An LGA 1151 Intel processor. Said another way, a current generation Intel processor. One from two years ago isn't going to work because it won't fit the motherboard
(*) DDR4 memory sticks (two of them), with up to 16GB per stick
(*) A hard drive, either 3.5" or 2.5"
(*) A copy of an operating system, such as Windows 10
(*) Probably obvious, but you also need a keyboard, mouse (or equivalent), speakers, and display(s)
Optional hardware includes:
(*) A video card
(*) A 120mm fan -or- a liquid cooler for the video card (which will use the opening for that 120mm fan)
Here's what I really like about this model:
(*) The Gigabyte Z170N-WiFi allows for overclocking of the CPU. That's why I bought the 6600K version (the "K" versions allow for overclocking)
(*) The CPU cooler comes with thermal interface material, so you don't need to worry about buying any
(*) It supports up to three displays at the same time if your processor has built-in graphics, which the 6600K does
(*) It has good ventilation
(*) The case is solidly built, and it came with all of the hardware installed in a quality fashion
(*) IMO, it looks a lot better in person than it does in the pictures
Here's what could have been better:
(*) A bit better/easier cable management for all of the wires running between things
(*) A nit, yes, but the use of thumb screws instead of regular screws to secure the back bracket and lid
I'll update this after I've gotten everything installed and can talk more about how loud the fans are and how well the power supply and motherboard work. I know that this kit has taken a while to get released, and I wanted to show you what you get with it in case you are tired of waiting and want to order it soon.
If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment and I'll respond as soon as I can. Thanks!
UPDATE 2016/07/09: Well, I got my i5-6600K CPU, Vengeance memory, and 850 Evo all installed along with Windows 10. Installation was pretty straight forward, with a couple of hints below.
One big reason for updating this review is that the fans in mine were very loud. Even under virtually no load at all, the case fans would spool up to max right from initial power up. That was very disappointing as I thought it would be quieter under virtually no load. Well, here's why - the case fan speed setting in BIOS was set to "Full Speed." The default per the manual was supposed to be "Normal" (which adjusts the fan speeds based on temperature), and once I set that in BIOS, the case fans quieted right down. Ahhhh. So, you may need to also adjust that.
The CPU cooler takes a minute or so to spool up, as it starts off fairly quiet. With the CPU cooler, it absolutely could be bad thermal contact between the cooler and the CPU, but I installed it just as instructed and didn't touch the thermal interface material before putting it on the CPU. I even waited a bit and tightened down the thumb screws on the cooler block again to adjust for the interface material compressing. It cranks up from simple things like launching Firefox, which seems off to me. I'm leaving my star rating at five until I figure out if it was just something wrong that I did.
The second hint involves one of the cables coming out of the CPU cooler. Corsair has a video on YouTube showing how to assemble parts into the Bulldog. When he connects one of the cables from the cooler to the motherboard, it looks like he runs the cable underneath of the cooler. Don't do that! After watching the video again, it's hard to tell if he does or not. You want to route that cable so that it does not run under the cooler because it can get hit by the spinning fan if you have it underneath. I unfortunately speak from experience, and the noise is definitely out of the ordinary. Luckily my cable and fan are still perfectly fine, but I wanted to give a heads up to help you avoid a need to route that cable a second time.
UPDATE 2016/07/16: I ordered some Arctic Silver 5 (along with some Arctic thermal compound remover and surface purifier) and got a chance to take the water block off today. Turns out, only about 20% of the CPU had any contact with the thermal pad that came with the cooler, as evidenced by most of the CPU being perfectly clean and the corresponding portion of the pad on the cooler looking pristine (and there was no contact in the area of the CPU die). I admit that might have been my fault, but I also have to say that I don't know what I could have done differently - the cooling block was pushed straight down on to the CPU when I assembled it, and I tightened all four mounting screws down. Anyway...you might want to get some third party compound.
I thought that applying the new thermal compound would be the ticket, but the CPU still gets hot quickly under load, and the cooler spools up really loud. I used Arctic's recommended "vertical line" application method. Arctic Silver 5 has a break in period, but it should still work better than when the original pad wasn't even covering the CPU die area. I'm probably going to pull the cooler off again to check if the compound is in good contact with both surfaces or if the cooling block is not flat or at an angle.
UPDATE 2016/09/18: Long story short - I'M AN IDIOT! Uggg, I'll rightfully take it on the chin for this one, but hopefully my stupidity can help you not miss the final and important step in the installation - connect the power cable to the "fan splitter." Sweet mother, I feel stupid. It's in the final section of the manual entitled, "Connecting Additional Fans or Pumps," which I thought meant "additional pumps." I didn't have any, so I skipped that section. That, and the pre-installed cable bundle was routed over the top of the power input jack on that splitter, so I missed that it wasn't already hooked up.
I thought that the pump on my cooler was defective and told Corsair support that the pump didn't seem to be working, and they RMA'd the cooler and sent me a replacement. I do wonder why they never asked if I'd hooked up the power to the pump...maybe they figured no one would be that stupid. :) Only after I got the second cooler hooked up and once again was maxing out the CPU temp did I start poking around even more.
Now that I actually have it hooked up correctly, that cooler is working very well. It is still louder than I had hoped even at low speeds, but it is much, MUCH better than before.
