Description

This is my baby, I spent way too much money on it to make it absolutely overkill for anything i need to do, be that android development, gaming, media storage, or just playing some good old fashioned osrs.

It constantly gets upgrades as i see things i might want. r/Buildapcsales is the bane of my wallets existence

Edit: I was surprised when i woke up and saw a bunch of comments, i added more photos and will go through and answer any questions you guys have :)

Part Reviews

CPU

Love this processor, absolutely powers through any workload i send it from gaming to compiling code while staying cool.

CPU Cooler

I paid a bit too much for this, but it keeps my 2700X icy cold with a push-pull configuration.

Motherboard

Great motherboard, lots of connectivity and good rgb control.

Memory

A decent ram kit that suits my needs, anything more doesn't really help me much as i would have to clock it down to 3000 to get quad channel.

Storage

Leftover SSD from a previous build, it's now exclusively a blizzard game drive.

Storage

very fast boot drive. file transfers are very very snappy.

Storage

A good NVME ssd for my entire steam library.

Storage

got these white label from WD easystores (WD100EMAZ) excellent option for backups, media storage, and long term storage.

Video Card

It's a radeon VII. I chose this card for the insanely good 1% fps lows. i don't care about 150+fps if my card dips down below 60 at any point. This card never does, and still hits 120+fps in most every game at 1440p with high-ultra settings.

Case

Arguably the best pc case in it's price range right now. Extremely easy to build in, Beauty meets functionality.

Case Fan

overpriced but i managed to get a good deal. good static pressure.

Case Fan

excellent low-key fans that run quiet and move a lot of air.

That Radeon VII may not be the best or over the top card, but it sure does look epic in that vertical mount.

AMD did really good with the Radeon VII, it could actually try and compete with some cards from Nvidias 10 series, as well as some of the lower-end 20 series cards. Like the 2070, and/or 2060.

I'm not saying that the Radeon VII is a bad card, it's definitely better than some cards, and just sometimes you want to buy something that's newer.

With my machine i get similar framerates +-5fps to the founders rtx 2080 i replaced with it. (in metro exodus, and DOOM 2016 at 1440p) the only difference being much higher 1% lows so i never notice stuttering. The radeon VII absolutely competes with other cards at it's price-point.

How are the acoustics? I know the Radeon VII is a crazy loud card, but I want to build a PC in that same case with the Radeon VII. Any thoughts?

so honestly, i just switched to a strix 2080 because the noise was unbearable for me. but i'm extremely sensitive to noise so take it with a grain of salt. if you want a radeon VII then go for it, it's a great card, just a tad too noisy if you don't undervolt it.

I think it competes well with the RTX 2080. As a content creator, it's a better card than the 2080 Ti, and a better value than the RTX TItan. And as a gamer, I enjoy 2080/1080 Ti levels of performance at 1440p 144hz, plus or minus 5%. It's a wonderful all-around card. I hope Navi will be focused more on gaming, but I also hope that Arcturus next year, while focused on gaming, will also launch with a 16gb+ version for those of us who use our computers(and our GPU's) for a living.

Do you develop android apps in Android Studio, and if so, have you run into any problems using the emulator built into Android Studio since you went with a Ryzen chip?

  • 9 months ago
  • 3 points

I do use android studio, though i have never used the emulator. I prefer to use a physical device for development/testing.

so for ryzen having issues with the emulator, i'm not sure.

SO i just bought an entire 8 LL fans (**** ton of money Q.Q) fans based on picture from your build and now i feel like an idiot. D: I wanted a vertically mounted GPU like you, so i bought the LIan LI- vertical mount kit because based on your pictures i thought i could put fans underneath the bracket, it seems yours is being mounted by something other than the vertical mount kit because you have use of the bottom of your case. If i install the vertical bracket i looks all functionality form the bottom of my case. . . .how did you do this? D:

Oof yeah, it's hit or miss with different vertical gpu mounts. The one i have is the cooler master vertical GPU mount here : https://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Accessory-MasterBox-MasterCase/dp/B071P862G1/ref=sr_1_1?crid=254QYBPDG9PB9&keywords=cooler+master+vertical+gpu+mount&qid=1553923695&s=gateway&sprefix=cooler+master+verti%2Caps%2C169&sr=8-1

using that allows me to barely fit the fans underneath it.

I'm going to be using this exact AIO, case, and Radeon 7. Nice to see someone do this before I do so I can imagine what it will look like before I do it. Great build!

Did you use LED strips on this build or is all that just reflected light from the RGB fans?

I have an airgoo addressable rgb kit tucked up behind the black borders on the glass.

Do the Corsair LL120 fans integrate with Asus Aura or how do you have your fans synced? I don't see Corsair fans listed on Asus' Aura product partners. I really like these LL120 fans but want to understand how well they would link up. Thanks!

Unfortunately i have to use icue for the fans, AIO, and my keyboard (not pictured). those fans don't work with Aura sync AFAIK.

How are the temps? i've been looking to move my 1080ti 2700x machine into this case and airflow seem like it might be weird with the side fans and not having a back exhaust.

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

My airflow scheme is kind of extreme, so my temps are actually really good.

3 bottom intake 3 top exhaust 6 side exhaust (push/pull on cpu rad)

this keeps cool air coming to my gpu and cpu and blows hot air right out the top from the gpu.

What did you use for a fan header solution?

I used a simple 8 to 1 silverstone pwm hub i found for $10 for the case fans, and the h150 has y splitters for push/pull

Nice build bud, may i ask what GPU vertical mount you are using ? i have the same case and want to mount my GPU vertically above the fans the same way you have, i would highly appreciate the info.

Thank you in advance.

It's the cooler master vertical GPU mount holder. (yes that's what they call it) you can find it on amazon for like $40 and i'm very happy with it.

Hey quick question if you don't mind. How did you get the front I/o panel usb 20 pin header to plug into the Mono, without bending the cable severely? I had this case and same Mobo and ran into an issue where I had the bottom row of fans installed, but the middle fan was in the way of the usb connector, and when plugged into the Mobo it was bent. How did you get around thi?

  • 7 months ago

I actually don't have it plugged in :/ I have usb pass- through on my keyboard that i use if i ever need to put anything in.
