Description

Build hand-picked for the collection of my inspiration, for ๐–˜๐–Ž๐–— ๐•ฏ๐–Š๐–›๐–Ž' himself, based on his woes for productivity since his fx6300 wasn't cutting it.

Part Reviews

CPU

Runs a little high on the voltage (1.448-1.48) but an amazing CPU nonetheless.

CPU Cooler

Cools awesome, from what I saw while testing it got 24c-39c idle, and 70c max under load on a 3900x! Easy to install if you don't get flipped around, no back plate change needed which is awesome.

Motherboard

Works great, lots of support for RGB, fans and the like with lots of reinforced support around ram and PCI lanes.

Note: Wasn't able to USB C header from case (O11 Dynamic) [Intel ****] Also if you're using a 5700 or galax size 1060, both have clearance issues with the vrm on the right. Weirdly, 2080 super ftw3 fits perfect.

Note: I'm only keeping the mobo at a 4 because of consistent updates, but this motherboard was inconsistent and caused issues with our 5700 challenge from asrock, 32gb of trident z royals, and 3900x which behaved very erratic at first, I believe this is all due to the ram controller. Update it to the Beta version to fix all the issues WE had, though MSI needs fan controlling back in this bios for the users, caused a lot of headache.

Memory

Work well in every system used, tested with 3700x and 3900x and provides the majority of benefits without having to hit the full 3600, unless you really need the extra performance, though this still beats my previous ddr3 1333 lmao.

Storage

Works well, traditional MLC ssd that'll outlive a lot of traditional drives.

Storage

Does the job, does it fast and does it well for the price. QLC though, which is definitely a small chance of being a problem.

Video Card

Basically an overclocked 1080ti, which is perfect and super stable, though they should lower the price by 100 or so dollars to be more competitive. Excited to see what comes next from both companies, but AMD failed us with drivers on the 5700 so we replaced it with this beast. Also keep in mind this chonky boi is 3 slots. Oh yeah and ray tracing is a fun tech demo from Nvidia.

Case

Beauty to work in, everything was extremely well thought out and it's quite a spacious case, though I did use most of its ample room for fans lol. Note: Lian Li's USB C header wasn't able to be used on this mobo.

Power Supply

Lovely labeling on the back of it and as always lovely presentation, works well. Note: a $25 Steam card that doesn't work on both I've bought or had others purchase is just wrong on SeaSonic's part, and the debacle over hitting 120% was scary causing mv fluctuations over time was spooky but a non issue because who the fk's gonna hit 120% lol.

Case Fan

Sync up well, look nice. Wish they could do more than one color at once but it works out well either way. Very hard to control the fan speed, though this is partially our motherboards fault, there should be software that better controls this within the os.

Monitor

Great for cheap 4k60, very dim VA panel though, improve nits to around 400 for the next model and if that's not possible then VA's may lose viability in the future.

Awesome build man! How are you liking the 3900x? I hear its a beast of a processor! I also love your case!

From the owner of the system: I'm liking it pretty ******* good dog, straight up did not break yet, so. In reality though, it is very good, I can run GTA V at maximum settings while screen sharing it alt tabbed ant feel no performance drop. And that is a real statement.

That is awesome to hear, AMD came back in a very big way. I was really close to getting the 3900x but I just could not justify it in my head. That is great that to hear because there needs to be competition with Intel these days.

Whats the max GPU temp you have seen?

  • 7 months ago
  • 1 point

System was built for airflow, so max temps on this system wouldn't match many other systems, I can tell you on my personal rig which uses the same board but is a red devil variant of the 5700, gets around 60c max at 50% fan, 80c at 15% fan and 31c at full speed under load 4k60

Hey man, how are u liking the RX5700 Challenger so far? This one went on sale this week in my country and seriously considering grabing it. Have u bios flashed it to XT?

I donโ€™t personally intend on BIOS Flashing any of the 5700โ€™s in the systems Iโ€™ve built, both this one and my personal system had issues with the gpu drivers, they seem to be the main issue but another thing to note is if you have an LG ultra wide 75 hz monitor, it will be unusable due to the incompatibility between the two.

Thanks man, still deciding, and your comment helped me tremendously as I'm about to buy the LG 75hz IPS UW and was planning on getting the RX 5700. Thanks.

The rig looks great! Great choice of case. Also the RGB adds some extra aesthetics to the overall build. Well done!

Client was aware of the cost difference and chose them purely for aesthetic. But one thing you seem to lack knowledge of is the chipset types, these TridentZ Royals have Samsung B-Die memory, which is often the most stable for over clocking and preferable to any Ryzen system. For instance, my personal rig features Hynix memory which is of lesser quality and costs significantly less. Another thing to note is that our market is potentially very different from your own and this included the sales tax of our state.

Hopefully this was insightful, have a wonderful day!
