Description

Gaming and streaming PC mostly play FPS games. With my parts selection a few bits were salvaged from my old machine (psu and storage) but the board and cpu were bought as a combo on amazon and were pre-installed and bios updated which was great only issue was the stock cooler so recently replaced it with the H100i V2 and its great a bit fiddly with the cables and such and with the cooler i upgraded the case to the 460x overall i'm happy with the case but cable management was not great and the ssd tray at the back was removed i just used velcro to mount the drives instead. Performance wise its great the 3700x is a beast and with a 2070 super i get 190 fps in siege with only 30% usage. The temps are great a max cpu of 42c and gpu gets 60c in games looking to upgrade my monitor to a 1440p 144hz in the not to distant future.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great for gaming and video editing haven't actually reached over 60% usage in anything I've thrown at it PBO has the cpu run at 4.2ghz most of the time in games and with my AIO it runs at 40-42c.

CPU Cooler

Really quiet and looks great performs nicely 5*

Motherboard

Missing some features and possibly a future upgrade but works fine just wish it had addressable RGB headers like the x570 version

Memory

great and mine runs at 3400mhz completely stable and the rgb lighting is a nice touch

Video Card

performs well but is a little noisy has quite a bit of coil whine under load

Case

Looks great but has some minor flaws the hub included is only for the lighting and does not control the actual fans the SSD mount is poorly designed as the power cables will not fit all of the drives i just removed it and then velcro'd the ssd's to the back of the MB tray also the back panel does not have any mounts it just rests on the back of the case and is then held down with thumb screws so its a nightmare to put back on the only reason it doesn't score lower is the outside is great

Power Supply

quiet reliable and fully modular with black cables had this for a couple of years now and its still going strong with no noise

Monitor

for the price this monitor is fantastic the colors are great contrast is good as its a VA panel there is a slight ghosting in very dark scenes but is hardly noticeable in games overall its great

Great Looking Build; nice job!

I saw in your comments that you had some issues with the case, besides those issues were there any other problems you had with the case? I am considering purchasing that case for my build that is currently in a Corsair carbide 175r rgb case. I like the case, except the front solid panel. I want a case with better air flow.

Do you like you graphics card?

The case is great but a bigger to build in. If you don't have 3.5' drives you could remove the HDD bay and get more room for cables as for air flow it's fine the case has holes all over the side of the front I'll upload a pic of it when I get in

Map knowledge is key I would recommend watching pro-league players like pengu and learn call outs because even when you're dead you can still be helpful. Also remember to have fun I always play better when I'm not trying hard and just having fun

Very solid build, but try to keep it at one SSD and one HDD.

I would but keep running out of storage I might lose the 1tb HDD soon and replace it for an m.2

Great build and a beautiful desk setup.
Did you have any issues with clearance between the radiator fans and your ram? Everything I've read says I'll have issues with anything other than low profile sticks.

Sorry for the late reply but yeah kind of the fan frame touches the top of the ram but doesn't affect the usage in anyway if i was to do it again i would probably front mount the rad and have the fans on the front as there is more room

Nice Build. I know i am really late, but I have the same case as you and I am looking to upgrade everything but my case. Please tell me how you top mounted your AIO because i want to use the same AIO. Thanks =)

It was a tight fit but the fan frame is resting on the top of the ram and does not seem to reduce performance or affect anything in terms of cooling i hope this helps

it kinda helps, but can you go through step by step how how screwed in your AIO cooler to the top of the case, it would help a lot if you could include some pictures from the top of the case without the mesh part on. THANKS SO MUCH BTW. =)
