Description

So this will be my 3rd completed build that I have done. The first two were for me and my gf which I built together. I have yet to post them both but stay tuned because those im very excited to share.

Anyways I built this for a close friend of mine who has been curious about getting into the PC world. He needed a good workstation and a system that could game pretty well. Also he is a big fan of Rick and Morty so I tried to bring the Toxic Rick theme together so he could be proud of this gaming rig.

Everything came together very well, I mainly wanted to show him the improvements in speed with the SSD storage vs his Xbox One he will be switching over from. The multitasking capabilities of a 6 core 12 thread CPU and a GPU that makes his Xbox cry. I replaced the thermal paste on the 580 with thermal grizzly and have yet to overclock anything but at max load it sits at around 68-70c with the fans set to silent. So I believe I have some headroom. The 1600 at average gaming load is anywhere from 30-45c so that seems pretty healthy as well with room to overclock to maybe 3.9ghz.

I wanted this build to represent a theme but also be interchanged to accomodate what he might be interested in next. So let me just say the Deepcool RFs are amazing. Quiet, bright, and cheap. No problems whatsoever.

I will update more when I get his full desk setup completed.

Part Reviews

CPU

I had originally ordered this new from Ebay's 15% sale on black Friday when Neweggs ebay account had it for $130 then it got kicked out of my cart and I didn't notice until after. Dissapointed I went to craigslist and found this bad boy for $100. I consider it a sweet spot inbetween budget, performance, and multitasking.

CPU Cooler

Cheap, sexy, quiet and performs. Went together with all the other deepcool fans seamlessly.

Case

When I did my first personal build I considered this case and after working with it I can see why. It was amazing! Airflow is great, the cable management was easy, dust filtration was all there where you need it, and the outside it beautiful. Could not go wrong with this case.

Nice! I like the toxic Rick theme. I would have chosen the black meshify instead though. Still looks great

Yeah I considered that but the way I saw it was in the show all the toxins that made up toxic rick were locked inside something and everything around it was clean and normal. So I thought since the inside of the case was black and the outside white it kinda resembled the toxins being contained. That may be looking to far into it but that was where I was coming from haha thanks for the compliment

Ah that is a good idea. I can see that. Good thinking

Could i bother you to share a picture of the front of your case as the fans are on? I've got the same case and I'm currently looking to fill it up with some lighting. Also I was looking at the same exact cpu cooler you've got.

Yeah Il take some when I get home, I actually switched out the 120mm fans in the front and top with 140mm and then added a 120mm fan to the backside of the gammax cooler. Also added some led strips. Ive been meaning to update with better pictures.

Cool. Looking forward to them.

Thanks. Look pretty nice. I think ill go with tge 120mm fans so i can fit 3 in the front.

TheSpaceYeti submitter 3 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

Yeah I would have but in order for you to do that you have to remove the drive cage and then take out a big piece of the psu cover towards the front.
