CHECK OUT OUR DEALS!
For the price the switches are fine. Fairly smooth to type on, a low pitch switch. I "hard swapped" them and soldered them on to a keyboard PCB. On my first attempt I broke the PCB so had to unsolder them. I resoldered them to another board and they still worked okay. So hardy surviving a iron at max temp. Again for the price good for the beginner who is looking to solder switches.
The motherboard was dispatched straight away, everything worked straight out of the box, BIOS was up to date.
Even came with a pack of haribo.
Directions and manual clear and easy to follow with all the appropriate accessories. Made my first pc build easy especially with the pre installed io shield and wifi card.
The reality of switches is is not really the sound but the feel the is the key factor. Watching a You Tube video cannot help you with this. The switches are fine and diffuse the led lights making if softer. Service from orbit was first class.
Can't report on the 4090, hardly used it yet. As the other reviewer mentioned, definitely needs its anti-sag bracket, it's a monster! Easier to remove than I thought it would be and on my board it doesn't cover any of the headers, which is great, although you need to fit your SSDs first. Took ages to get the 12VPWR cable routed though.
Good service from Orbit :) Thanks.
Getting like 160 170od frames on 4k Res pretty much on cod forgot settings but think it's competitive
A good example of the AMD Radeon RX 6600 that is a solid and reliable performer.
Identical to the case fans supplied with the H7 Flow, so ideal for moving to a 3 fan setup on the front. Quiet and effective.
My friends were trying to persuade me that I should get a higher rated power supply, but I ignored them, since I knew this one would be fine for the job. While it would be nice for there to be a lower rated power supply with monitoring functionality, I'm not too bothered. At least this one was (in comparative terms) cheap.
It's so spacious and amazing, literally everything you could want from a case no issues other than the price, 100+ for a case is baffling to me but I will never need a case again with this durable case.
Super easy to install, drivers can be downloaded from the MSI website. Getting your RAM to it's advertised speed is easy just go into the bios and switch on the profile. First time having a board with WiFi and I must say I'm impressed with it, works well at my max speed (with VPN too). I reckon it's worth spending a little extra for this board, the nvme heatsinks and vrms are good and seem to keep everything running cool. When I upgrade to AM5 in a few years I will get the MAG tomahawk board too.
Believe the partpicker hype this case is a breeze to build in and looks pretty nice too, though I definitely recommend buying a few extra fans (beQuiet! silent fans are good for the low noise). Hadn't heard of Orbit before I saw them listed on UK partpicker but they delivered my order to an Island within two days & all components are working fine (and I'm a totally amateur builder haha). IMO they are just as good if not better than Overclockers without the ridiculous pricing. Highly recommend.
Wasn't expecting that much since it was under £250 but I've been able to run Cyberpunk at 1080p 60 FPS, Ultra settings with raytracing off. Temps are pretty good too I think the highest I've seen it go in HWinfo is 65°. Definitely worth it if you still game at 1080p.
I wanted a processor which would be good for audio production and occasional gaming and I've been perfectly happy with this. CPU came in perfect condition and temps have been kept low with a phantom spirit cooler. If I need an upgrade in the future I'll get an AM5 chip 👍
I bought this mount as I didn’t want a 90 degree power connector as I’d heard they melt down on 4090 gpu’s. Feels quite sturdy and a good size for a 4090.
