Description

This is the build I am more satisfied with than my previous builds. And I hope this is my stick with build. On weekends, I stream and game all in this PC build. Temps were respectable as well as clocks.

The only issue I deal with is the coil whine with my GPU. I have it overclocked to +100/+700 for now from afterburner.

Overall, I am happy with this build and I still plan to replace my 2700x to 3700x. For not only lower tdp, but also better 1080p performance. I feel it has to be that way because I stream and game on that resolution. My current CPU bottlenecks my 2060 super for 1080p. I seen some vids that I can get more than 90% GPU usage with new 3000 series AMD RYZEN CPU. Compared to 79-90% on low settings apex legends to get to 240hz.

For CPU performance, currently, it's great. I might hit the silicon lottery? I offset -0.07mv with level 1 oc (Asus bios) and 85°c throttle limit. I did it so it can remain cool with 92mm aio and still get great clocks.

During my streams, I often see 3.9-4.1ghz with about 70-83°c with both panels closed. My nvme and m.2 drives are below 55c. I'm ok with that.

I still have to manage better cable placement from psu to not put pressure on the noctua fan (on aio). Otherwise it makes a clicky noise. That's why I placed a modified fan grill to keep some pressure off the fan from psu cables.

ALSO: for those wondering how I got everything to fit, use the first 2 psu connection with both CPU and GPU. My GPU has only 1x 8-pin connection. Im not using any drives other than my m.2 and nvme. Less cables and easier to route the aio asetek 645lt tubes around the cables to the AMD CPU. I had trouble routing the tubes when the cpu power was connected on far side closest to the tubes under psu. And best to use unsleeved cables which I got from dreambigbyray at Etsy. Great seller and ships fast.

Currently, I'm still adjusting the psu cables so the GPU fits clean and doesn't put pressure on the intake aio fan that causes click noise.

Love this build, especially those custom PSU cables. Where did you snag those from?

I got them from Etsy site. More specifically, seller is dreambigbyray. Got these nice custom length unsleeved cables that are perfect for the Dan case.

I'll check that out, thank you!

Could you share your cable dimensions?

That idk. Everything is plugged in. I did request pre-length cables for the Dan case. It's similar length to pslate cables.

Love it. the 2700X is great for gaming and streaming at the same time. with the right OBS configuration, of course. +1

Thank you. I use nvenc (new) for streamlabs obs streaming. And I use CPU for cores and threads.

Good stuff. I use the x264 for stream encoding and NVENC new for local capture. Works really well!

That sounds like a huge performance hit. :/

I stream at 720 60fps with very fast usage preset so the impact isn't too cumbersome. 0 % encoding and rendering lag if OBS diagnostics can be trusted...

I like that rgb affect on the wall in pic 7.

Thank you. Idk even how I get that type of RGB effect like that. But it works :)

This is just wow. Great build. Why not a 5700xt?

This was literally the exact build I was going to do -the 2060.

Because I use the nvenc encoder for streaming. Otherwise I would love to get the 5700 xt sapphire pulse. The amd encoder from their GPU are not very optimized for streaming and still needs work. Therefore, I was lead to get the 2060 super. And I didn't want to use the x264 encoder because I want more performance.

I have a build using a Ryzen 7 2700X and an RX 5700xt. It kills it in everything I throw at it Ultra settings cranked up!!!!

This is pretty much my dream pc but I would put it in a tu150. Looks awesome! Also like the 92mm cooler- did you watch Bitwit build in this?

Yes I did. But I won't be putting a 3900x...maybe the 3900 non x haha

Where did you buy those rgb strips? And what length did you get?

  • 3 months ago

I got them from bykski. They're normal length similar to Corsair but cut short length.

have u tried undervolting ur CPU? Maybe that will lower the bottleneck with the GPU u have been having :/

I replaced the cpu with 3700x and lowered the ppt to 85°c limit. I was thinking on manual oc to 4.2 GHz but idk how. It's much different than 2700x.
