Description

Decided it was time for an upgrade from my Intel i5 3470 system.

Old system specs are: CPU: Intel Core i5 3470
Graphics: Asus GTX 950 Memory: Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB

New PC was built late August. First Computer build for me.

CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 2600. Great CPU. No overclocking yet, but don't need to as I only have an RX 570 in atm (planning to upgrade to a 1070).

Cooler - H7 Quad Lumi. RGB lighting steered me towards this cooler. swapped out the led fan for a cryorig QF120 balance. Keeping the R5 at mid 30's while I'm typing this with todays temperature around 25°C right now.

Motherboard - B450 Pro Carbon AC. Mobo is actually b450 pro carbon. Bought because it seemed like a decent board based off reviews and wanted a board with good wifi.

MEMORY - Team T-Froce Dark Pro 3200. One click to have memory running at 3200. No complaints here.

STORAGE - 860 Evo and WD Black. SSD is fast and very happy with it. Prices have dropped now and wish I had the 500GB model. WD Black probably makes the most noise in the system. Bit noisy and a little grindy on shutdown.

GPU - Asus RX 570 Strix. Should have just used the GTX 950 I had till I get a 1070. Had random screen flicker in age of empires and also cannot access the BIOS via HDMI. Don't have a display until the windows login screen (have to plug in an old monitor if I want to access the bios).

CASE - S340 Elite. Case can house an ATX mobo but be compact enough to fit on my narrow desk. TG looks great.

PSU - EVGA G3 750W. 650W was out of stock and the other store I purchased from were selling the 650W for the same price I got the 750W for.

Already had the headset, keyboard, mouse, monitor and speakers (Speakers need an upgrade).

Great work on the cable management! Was it hard? I'm going to do a build which something like this and I need help.

What he is saying is dont wait until your done to do it. Example... as you put the fans in cable manage as much as you can so that it doesnt get cluttered at the very end.

Should be able to, I ran my 2600 on stock cooler at 4ghz, temps went up under load for benchmarks etc but with in spec. This cooler is much better than stock. As long as the case fans are done right it should be stable. They say on amd site "Max Temps 95°C" I peaked at around 80C with - 2 140MM - IN, and 2 OUT (1 top, 1 rear).
