Description

Using mainly for gaming and software development. P400 case is really good to build in, gtx 1660ti is performing as expected and ram is running at 3000 mhz. CPU cooler for ryzen 5 2600 was a bit hard to screw down to motherboard. TX 550m psu fan is the loudest in the build, with a not so smoothing sound.

love your build but you should have waited for the ryzen 5 3600...

Nah he should of waited for the Prime day 2600 price drop lol. It's $120! I don't have no extra 80 dollars lying around so ima stick with the 2600.

Yes, but i have my r5 2600 since May and was on sale... Also perhaps it would be better to spend the difference between a 2600 and a 3600 on a better gpu xD.

Hey! Just want to ask when you were building this did the graphics card block any of the SATA ports? I was going to buy the B450M DS3H but I heard the 1660 ti would block the SATA ports.

Many thanks!

Hey, the width of this specific model of the gtx 1660ti is a almost the same, though a few centimeters smaller than the width of a micro-atx mobo, so no problems about that, no sata ports blocked ;) . However, if you have a very large gpu, you can connect the sata ports before installing the gpu. This way you so won't have to worry about trying to connect the sata ports in a tight space or even being blocked.

btw sorry i took so long to answer you, hope this is still usefull!

Nice build! I probably would have used the same parts! But I think you should have went with a 2600x

Was it easy to install the b450m into that case? I've heard that it can be a hassle to remove the pre installed stand-offs which are for ATX Motherboards. I'm planning on using the same case and motherboard so can you explain how you removed the pre installed stand-offs?

Yes, i had to remove standoffs and reassign some to different places because i had a micro-atx board. I had to use pliers to remove the standoffs, and grab them firmly with the pliers to remove them, otherwise they would just slip xD When you grab a standoff with the pliers you can loosen them in counter-clock wise (not too sure if it really was counter clock wise). You may have to use force too loosen them. Be carefull not to scratch the case with the pliers! (like i did xD ). To place and tighten a standoof is much easier and can be done just with your fingers.
