Description

I’m using this mainly for my school work and some light gaming such as MMORPG and single player offline game. What I was really aiming though is the simple white but packs with few rgb stuffs which will make my bedroom even more prettier!

AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor I’m coming from i5 4th gen K and I must say AMD is really good in this generation but hopefully it would aged well in the long run.

CPU COOLER NZXT - Kraken X52 Rev 2 73.1 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler Honestly this is purely for my guilty pleasure as I don’t overclock my computer that often, I just bought for the look really but the performance is great and it quality should lasted me long into my future build! I might get a higher CPU later on soooo I don’t know how long it would last, but that CAM application is cool and fancy enough, I can monitor the whole system there and change the leds mode so I guess it is a good investment.

MOTHERBOARD MSI - B450M MORTAR TITANIUM Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard I bought this over Bazooka B450 one because it is again for the look. The mystic functions are great nothing to complain about, the price could give me an ATX mobo though but that cool looking heat sink is just too good looking to pass up. This is the only white mobo that matched my ideal build at the time and the price is lower than other models.

MEMORY Crucial - Ballistix Sport LT 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2400 Memory Was going for 16 gb but my last build also had 16gb, I feel like I can manage with only 8gb this time, might upgrade the whole kit to 32 when I get more money. This brand is my go to brand as it is not overpriced and simplistic look.

STORAGE #1 Crucial - MX500 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive It is actually M.2 form but I couldn’t find on the search. I had Samsung evo on my previous build and I don’t think I would need that much performance, so to avoid the high cost I choose this brand instead and the price is great! This one is housing windows 10 and few basic applications.

STORAGE #2 Silicon Power - A55 512GB 2.5" Solid State Drive The most valued 512gb ssd at good price. I keep my game files here for fast load.

VIDEO CARD EVGA - GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB SC GAMING ACX 3.0 Black Edition Video Card Great card for light gamer like me. As RTX just released making the price of this card dropped to a great deal. It would serve me for at least 2-3 years

CASE NZXT - H500 (White) ATX Mid Tower Case Good case has plenty rooms, good air flows, the design is what I love the most <3

POWER SUPPLY EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply Have this since last build. It is now 3 years old but it still running strong with no hiccups. Full modular and gold plus are the most important things when I’m planning for future proof.

I would ditch the RGB strip on the bottom of the case, makes it look a bit junky just because it doesn't appear to be flush with the case. Otherwise pretty great build!

Nicely done. It'd be nice to put that RGB strip somewhere like on top or on the front side of the case where it wouldn't look so odd (honestly if you think it doesn't bother you, leave it). If I were you I'd look for that backlight effect instead of leads popping right in my eyes ;p

Also, imo run a push-pull fan configuration on the aio radiator so run things quiet. I'm assuming your fans are loud af right now.

I put two fans at the front of radiator in push configuration as I don’t want to bring in hot air from the radiator into the case and getting fresh air from outside the case to the radiator instead, I hope I don’t screwup though this is my first time installing the aio. The fans are not really loud though but I do hear the RGB fans spinning at the back quite a bit but not loud, they aren’t Noctua so it is not that bad imo

I wouldn't actually remove the strip, it's your build, do what you want.

What I will say is this, on the glass panel of the case (either on the inside or outside), you can simply put a strip of electrical tape on the bottom portion. This will hide your RGB strip without being a complete eye sore. I've done it before and was surprised at how well it hid it.

OR you can leave it and enjoy your rig, ain't harming anything.

That Titanium mobo looks amazing! Really highlights the white strip in the case, which is one of the ones I'm considering. How's it been working out for you? I'm also getting the Crucial MX500, after seeing its benchmarks were so close the the Samsung EVO.

I got a bit troubles with MX500 just about couple weeks ago. I had to re-installed the whole OS again in order to get my PC to boot up.

AS much as I love computers. I have to admit that I am not geek enough to learn about frequency measurements :'D

Thanks guys for the suggestion I was thinking the same once I settled down and actually looking at it. I’ll try to move it around! Maybe at the top or on the side.

Over all this is a very clean build, excellent job on that. +1

The only things I would suggest you do would probably relocate the RGB strip to the top of the case, or along the front panel of the case. I would also suggest looking for a motherboard that is black because the sliver really kind of sticks out like a sore thumb in this build.

Thank you for your suggestion! I will take a note on that for the future!

I couldn’t add them into the build since i couldn’t find this brand on the search box
