From what I've heard, a more aggressive cooling solution, such as a liquid CPU cooler, will allow better overclocking. I've been thinking of going with a radical alternative for my next Ryzen build: the Hex 2.0 thermo-electric CPU cooler by Phononic!
At first I thought I was looking at an image with the colors reversed! Prettty cool build!
Well, I think you lose every third hard drive to overhead in RAID 5....so, technically I guess there it is 2 TB.
Reminds me of Fire Mario! With the pipes and all. You obviously put a lot of work and imagination into it. +1 from me.
Stunning! Looking at it gives me chills.
I'm thinking of getting the Corsair H100i v2 for my next build. Was it hard to install?
Then again, the Pro Carbon does look Awesome!! If you like that kind of thing.
MSI does offer an X370 motherboard with about the same features. The MSI X370 Pro. The only differences seem to be one less M.2/SATA connector and it has an older audio chip. It's on Newegg for $139.99, $40 less than the Gaming Pro Carbon. If I could do it all over, I might go with it.
I should hope so! Lol!
It's actually the stock CPU cooler. It ships with Ryzen 1700 processor. It is branded as the AMD Wraith Spire.
Besides looking cool, it does keep the CPU quite cool at 3GHz. Haven't tried overclocking yet. But I've read that it is best to use a more agressive solution for cooling Ryzen. Such as a liquid CPU cooler.
Looks like you made some solid choices hardware wise. Nice Sandisk SSD, I assume as your gaming drive? I do love Corsair cases myself. Would like to see more pictures though. Especially of the inside.
Thank you! I try to keep the cables lookin good, even on the back side. My philosophy is "add a cable > manage it".
Very nice build. Good job!
