Description

Originally built a 2600 with a Red dragon Vega 56 but it had less performance than I expected it to from seeing online benchmarks so I returned it and upgraded to one of the newly released CPUs/GPUs. Pretty happy with the upgrade, gained roughly 50% fps and got way higher minimums in games like Witcher 3. Was all pretty straightforward to put together just some plugs were hard to push in while at the same time trying to minimize visible cables. BIOS update worked on first try. Just waiting on Ryzen updates to have lower idle CPU temps/voltages.

Uploaded pictures of different color themes, using changing RGB colors looks good in person but is hard to capture in pictures.

This is a really nice build. My only question is what software do you use to control your RGB?

Mystic Light controls all the motherboard, fans and RAM RGB and then Precision X1 controls the video card lights.

Did you buy a rgb splitter or did you buy a controller?

I absulutely love your build! So coool and high end (atleast for me)

Thank you, I believe I plugged the CPU cooler into the motherboard 12V RGB header since it's non addressable and then joined the rear and two top fans together with an included RGB splitter (came with the fans) into a 5V header and then the two front fans were connected and plugged into another 5V header.

Can the mobo support ddr4-3600? It's capacity is 3466.

On the Ryzen 2600 I couldn't hit ddr4-3600 with the RAM (through xmp profile, didn't try manually overclock), however after I upgraded to Ryzen 3600 it worked fine at ddr4-3600 through xmp profile.

Nice! Congratulations on your build. I hope it stays strong for a good time.

Hey, just wondering. I have the same MOBO, but haven't upgraded to R3000 cpu yet. What was your ram actually hitting before you upgraded? I can nab the same kit for $85 (US) today, so I might pounce...

Pictures captured the looks just fine. Great looking build.

Nice Build. Just curious if you've had any issues with RTX GPU Fan being really loud at boot up? Seems to be an issue with 3rd Gen Ryzen and Nvidia RTX cards.

Yeah at boot up all the fans are at max for a few seconds then goes back to normal.

Did you had issues with the bios update on that motherboard?

Worked on first try for me.

Any issues getting the cooler to fit that motherboard? I've heard there can be clearance issues and I just ordered the exact same two parts.

The first RAM slot is blocked by the cooler but since slot 2 and 4 are used for dual stick RAM it isn't an issue for me. Other than that everything fits fine.

Never seen one top fan as exhaust & the other as intake. Trying to balance pressure? Airflow? Did it make a difference with temps? Clever idea if it works as intended.

Really have no idea if it's better for temps or not since I'm lazy to try it the opposite way. Read some people talking about having the front top fan bring in more air towards RAM and CPU cooler and for the back top fan to be exhaust so thought I'd try it out.

Fair enough, thanks

Still happy with your Deepcool fans seven months later? Looking to get some RGB fans with MB control (exact same fan placement, same case), and it's surprisingly difficult to figure out which ones to get in terms of effectiveness, quality, and looks. Honestly, hardest part of entire build!

Sorry don't check here too often anymore. The fans are still working well, I did notice later on they are a bit loud on default speeds so I slow them down a bit sometimes so that it's not as noticeable. It's not too loud though, it's mostly only noticeable if its completely quiet in the room and I'm concentrating on it. You can't hear them otherwise.

Something else I noticed later is that the cpu fan and case fans can't sync together perfectly since I'm combining addressable and non addressable rgb. It works fine since I mostly keep it all on one color now but if it's changing colors the cpu fan changes colors differently than the case fans.
