Description

Wanted to build a new PC for multiple purposes: gaming (1440p), VR, multi-tasking, etc. When I saw the Ryzen 9 announcement, I tought it was the perfect timing.

Was originally waiting for the Radeon 5700 XT partner cards, but ended up buying a RTX 2070 that was in sale instead.

PC booted up first time without having any issues. First time building from scratch and it's been a good experience.

All prices listed are in CAD.

Part Reviews

Case

This has been a blast working with this case. Everything was made easier! Cable management, easy access to everything with the removable panels, great space for working and it looks really good. Would recommend to any builder.

Custom

Looks really classy and came with everything you need to put the cables in place.

Custom

Keeps my CPU (AMD Ryzen 9 3900x) at low temperatures, included easily-understandable instructions, was easy to install and it's pretty quiet!

Well, first of all, its a gigabyte white card, and those are expensive, also, its CAD, which has a lesser exchange rate than that of USD

Building a build with same case, fans, and motherboard. But I have a quick question. Would it be possible to plug the stock case fans and the Deepcool fans into the motherboard since im not getting a water cooler? Thank you.

Sorry for the delay! You have available on your motherboard 2 SYS_FAN, 1 CPU_FAN and 1 CPU_OPT. I would suggest plugging your case fans into SYS_FAN 1 and trying to plug the top Deepcool fans in SYS_FAN 2 with your rear fan (iirc you have 4 plugs in the deepcool fan controller).

Alternativaly, you could plug your fans into CPU_OPT and raise their RPM manually, but I would prefer using the dynamic system fans instead.

Heyo. Did you have any issue with the Corsair RAM and the Aorus Elite mobo? The Elite's QVL doesn't list Vengeance RGB Pro and I'm a bit concerned that it'll have no XMP or be poorly optimized.

I had an XMP profile for the 3200 and it works great even with the Elite, just selected it in the bios and it worked right away. I've seen some LED issues on one of the RAM stick, but I've put it to a static color and it's looking alright now.
