Description

Hey guys,

I wanted to build my PC for a very long time. I mentioned it to my girlfriend and she commited to buy me components for this build.

Currently I am using this PC for gaming (1440p, very high settings = 50-70fps depending on the game), and it will be used as a working PC by my GF (light editing standard, workloads for office PC, potentionally streaming).

1st Bootup: After finishing the build it was time to test it. After pressing the power button nothing on the screen appeared, I dont have to tell you I almost had a heart attack. On the try number 4 finaly BIOS.

Bios setting: Everything went well, setting M.2 as boot drive for windows everything was detected correctly. I am not able to manualy set RAM speed to the profile one was max speed 3200Mhz.

After installing W10 the PC started to crash all the time (probably issue during instalation). When trying to reinstal the PC was not able to restore and was keep op crashing. Following some steps from microsoft support I was able to reinstal. After reinstalling windows I still had some crashes (looks like due to RAM speed). When kept on default speed everything was working well but when using max speed crashes occured. After some additionaly search I found out Gigabyte software was needed and inside I was able to set the speed to 2933Mhz and the system is stable.

In the future I would plan to upgrade the GPU to better perform for 1440p but as someone, who was playing last 13 years on console, already like this its very different experience.

Hope you guys like it.

Nice build. I love the Kraken series and the Aorus logo is some good clout lol. And those RAM sticks look surprisingly good from above. I wish there was more RGB but this build does a great job at being simplistic. Great cable management and way to stick with the color theme. +1

Hope you have a great time exploring the world of PC games and the endless possibilities over console! :)

Yeah i was affaraid of the orange color in the mobo but in the dark build its not visible, the chrome looks good inside and the leds in purple with aio its just perfect! I like very clean build so I dont know if Id add some rgb. Maybe in the future front fans for pushpull config and inside rgb fans but lets see

Oh, I just realized your mobo is Aorus! I'm planning on using one for my friends build since the Aorus logo just adds clout, was cheaper than the one I had selected before, and had built-in wireless networking so I could ditch the PCI-E x1 wireless network adapter. I only wish that the logo wasn't partly covered by the rear panel fan. I plan on putting a radiator there so I'm not sure how that'll go.

Enlighten me with the logic behind having a 3.7 GHz CPU with 3.2Ghz memory sticks. Also why go for a B series motherboard, since alot of people say they are can't be overclocked. Lastly why spend so much on CPU cooler when a cheaper one can do the same job with less power consumption. Speaking of power, is 650W enough?

Hi. I am not a computer expert so before choosing the components i made some reaserch on internet.

3200Mhz ram is one of the recommendation for this cpu and its the sweetspot for price/performance ratio

The cpu 2700x has somthing called XFR2 so with good cooling it automatically boosts to 4ghz under full load thanks to AIO

AIO i chose for design I hate the big fan blocks and other aios just does not look so good...

650W is more than enough reccommended for this build was around 550W and I have no issues
