Will updates with benchmarks, capabilities, and parts reviews
This rig is a replacement tower for my client, who primarily streams content and putzes around the internet. Additionally, it can handle some light gaming and Adobe as well (i.e. Minecraft, Hearthstone, Lightroom).
The focus of this build was to create a budget AMD rig with future-proofing and upgradeability in mind. My client normally purchases a HP OEM desktop every 4-5 years for around the same budget (but half the power and quality) and I wanted to make sure it was easy to upgrade components on that same cycle (AM4/DDR4 should still be relevant). Additionally, mATX build should save some desktop space as well.
For aesthetics, red is the name of the game (clients favorite color). I swapped out the two stock case fans with Corsair red LED intake and exhaust. Mobo has red LED accent lighting and red aluminum heat spreaders on the RAM as well.
