Hi! This is my first PC build ever, and I was wanting some input on parts that I want to change. I was a total noob 4 weeks ago, and after watching ALL the videos from Paul's Hardware, Hardware Canucks, Gamers Nexus, Jayztwocents, etc. I woud consider myself a blossoming enthusiast. The purpose of this build is video/photo editing, and of course gaming. Hence, I would like your opinion on following:
1.- An air cooler that can handle the best/safe OC for the Ryzen 7 3700X, and also considering a potential CPU upgrade in a few years. The important thing is that I have RGB RAM that I want to show off to...well myself. Isn't that the reason we build these things? I'm a total coward, so I wouldn't like to go with an AIO because the potential leaks. Also, I want to keep the build as silent as I can. I have some options:
Le Grand Macho RT: Ugly but perfect clearance & performance. 5 stars on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Grand-Macho-RT-fan-TY-147B/dp/B01BCLXO7Q
Scythe Fuma 2: Better looking but not perfect. Good comments, not many builds/opinions. Can this handle a hardcore OC for 3700x? https://www.amazon.com/-/es/Performance-Ventiladores-Incluido-Coolerer-SCFM-2000/dp/B07RFNG89S/ref=sr_1_2?
Of course I have considered DH15 & Dark Rock Pro 4, but they have RAM clearance issues, and I don't know if a single fan would be enough for a hardcore OC. The same is true for DH15s. I love the Dark Rock Pro 4, but the RAM clearance is a deal breaker if it can't handle an OC in single-fan mode.
2.- Are Asia Horse cable extensions any good in terms of build quality - electrical/material wise? I want this build to be as clean as it can be. I want to go with a violet/black/grey extension, and use the RGB to complete a nice look (in spite of MSI forcing us with their reddish color scheme).
3.- My MoBo is Asus, and my GPU is MSI. I can't install Mystic Light, because I get an error message, and Aura is not detecting my GPU. Yes, I used Google and can't find a solid answer for new x570 MoBo's.
Thank you for your comments! I will upload some more pictures soon. Cheers from Chile :)
Really good performance/price. I would definitely go AMD again.
I don't know if this is the one in the box with the CPU. If so, it is really good bang for the buck. Good temperatures even for gaming in Ultra. Not for OC, though.
Cheapest decent x570. You don't really need the WiFi version. It was the only one available. I didn't want troubles with installing the CPU, and having to flash my Bios. It has been working flawlessly. 1 star less, because it doesn't come with m.2 screws for short formats as the Corsair MP600.
B E A U T I F U L Getting a decent boost for Ryzen (that is what I tell to myself anyways). Should you pay for it? Not if you are budget restrained. They look really cool though.
Good product for the price. I use it for Windows & the games I'm currently playing, and it is enough.
I didn't believe this at first. I am a believer now. This thing is as fast as they come.
My MoBo detected just 5.5 Tb :'( It can get very noisy.
The sweet spot for me. Good performance/price. I went with MSI because of the fans, and I was not disappointed. They are really silent. I chose this model in particular for the extra fan, and thinking about a future OC.
I love this! IMO best bang for buck case. A lot of space, nice RGB fans, beautiful glass panel, and very ventilated.
Working just fine! I didn't want to pay for a full modular one.
I came from Windows 8. This is heaven.
Good for my needs, and good price. When I go full editing mode, I will add a better monitor.
I love the low profile keys as well as the RGB. It sounds good but not too distracting.
Working perfect so far. I like that you don't need to install Logitech's software to keep your settings.
This is huge! 2019, She.
