Description

After countless hours on Newegg, looking for those right prices, finally I ordered my parts. Hard for me to build a PC when i'm only 16 years old, I built this using my money I saved throughout this year only. By the way....I moved from a crappy laptop to desktop, so it's my 1st time building. Also I ordered a huge desk so that I can get rid of the boxes I have stacked below the build, and ordering a 3rd party CPU fan. The boxes I used to stack the PC are crammed with other boxes and flipped over the other side where it's not open, sealed with tape

I built this machine for gaming for 1080p 144hz gaming and moderate video editing. The parts price is what I paid for them plus taxes.

Part Reviews

CPU

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 The CPU outstanding for the price, have not tried overclocking but it's a huge bang for your buck. The stock CPU fan is somewhat quiet, but you can still hear it, acceptable.

Motherboard

MOTHERBOARD: MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC AM4 The motherboard is nicely built, has carbon fibre and feels like a very sturdy board, able to overclock my ram to 3000mhz without a problem, also you can control ALL the fans that are in your system in the BIOS. BIOS looks simple for a 1st time builder for me.

Storage

SSD: Samsung 860 Evo 250GB Does it's job, great SSD.

Video Card

VIDEO CARD: EVGA GTX 1070 FTW Freaking love this graphics card, looks nice and preforms great and you can change the lights on the card. Have not overclocked it yet, heard this card can blow up or have an annoying coil whine noise, never had those problems......yet..

Case

It looks neat and study, but one of the case fans have this terrible whine noise.

Monitor

Colors are way off, no VESA mounting and no speakers.The 144hz however is nice, also the amount of brightness this monitor can do.

Keyboard

Excellent for gaming, don't buy this if you are going to type with this keyboard!!

Is the box that the PC is on stable? Concerns me a bit but the build is awesome :P

I am concerned about your storage. Do you only have the one SSD of 250 GB. That will fill up in (24 hours for me) very quickly if you are using this for gaming as AAA-rated games are huge files.

In regards to the CPU, I am still on the fence on the 2600/2600X and want to know why you ended up with the 2600.

I also recommend the Corsair MM300 mouse/keyboard pad. I find it to be perfect for overall comfort of the keyboard/mouse placement and a fair price. There are some alternatives for a cheaper price if you wish to save money on that.

Also, beautiful cable management on your PC. I like it.

Yes I do only have storage, I plan on adding more early next year, like a 1TB of SSD or HDD. But right now I'm good with storage, have r6 and nms installed with other games yet I have 72GB's left. Ended up with the 2600 because, the price was just right, and the X was another 50$ more at the time.

The chip used in the 2600 and 2600x are identical the only difference is that the 2600x is factory clocked higher and it doesn't come with a cooler but if you plan on overclocking at all even modestly or using default overclock found on most motherboards would make up the performance difference so you wouldn't have to experiment with the mythical scary overclocking (even though it's very easy with some light research and a few hours) if you do plan on overclocking it's a smarter idea to save your money and buy the 2600

The 2600X comes with the Wraith Spire Cooler.

Oh I thought it came with out the cooler I know the 1600x didn't come with one I thought it was the same idea.

Yooo you should probably slap some intake fans on there man, It looks like you only have exhaust and no intake. Otherwise nice build.

The H500 comes stock like that, and it actually works quite well. Gamers Nexus' thermal tests showed that the negative pressure setup worked better than putting one of those fans as intake and leaving the other as exhaust.

Edit: Dust may be an issue, but if he cleans out his PC every month or so it'll be just fine.

And How often do people do that? I Know I would hate having to do that, If he did both intake it might work better, and pretty much no worrying about dust.

I like it. Very simple yet very beastly at the same time. Perfectly balanced like all things should be.

I've got a pretty similar build and am having a hell of a time getting the screws that hold the video card in to line up. Was that an issue at all for you?

Huh? The screws that hold up the video card? Or the little clip to the sides?

nice build. i got all my parts in last night, went to build it, and my cpu and psu was bad. the cpu was the 2700x and the psu was a 450w bronz so this time im going with a 650w gold and im getting the cpu replaced i hope dear god. the pins got bent i just hope i can get a replacement. i got a rtx 2060 tho its good. it kinda sucked it was my first time ever building a pc and just having a gaming rig ever, im also 16 years old so it was a big chunk of money to me, i just pray for the cpu

You can look at videos on YouTube to bend the pins back. For me, building a pc was pretty cool and straight forward.

Nice build. Is one of your RAM slots obstructed by the cable? Looks like you got the stock cooler and everything to fit while I’ve seen people claiming it won’t.

How is the monitor would you recommend it?

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

The monitor is excellent, got it for 150$ off of Amazon and it was a huge bang for buck. However, the colors a tad bit off but I can't be angry because it's a 144Hz monitor. I would totally recommend it to people that game and don't really do much editing. There is no speakers or VESA mount either which is fine as well.

Yes I have tried moving around with the calibration, the colors improved but look a little off but still, I’m totally okay with that. Thanks for your reply!
