Description

Hi guys! I just built my first gaming PC and I want to say that I had fun building it. There's a lot of heart-pumping moments when deciding which parts should I buy. Especially on GPU, as I heard the news about the RTX cards dying within a week/month. Buying a brand new 1070 TI or a used 1080 or 1080 TI came into my mind but looking into the prices on that time, 2070 is the best choice for my budget so yeah. And for a month of playing 1440p in Ultra settings without overclocking (I don't want to overclock anything on my PC), my gpu still works fine so I hope this would last for 3 years or so. As for the CPU cooler, I bought the NH-D15S as I really like the reviews on Noctua but the beige-ness color of their fans messes with my clean looking setup so I decided to buy the Noctua NF-A15 HS-PWM chromax.black.swap 140mm and Noctua NA-HC4 chromax.white heatsink covers. After I installed those two to my cooler, I noticed that as I put the glass cover of the NZXT H500 case, it touches the heatsink cover (Included some pictures). I don't know if it's okay but you don't need to exert a lot of force when closing it. I know it sounds scary but it works and you would love the clean looks of the Noctua Cooler with Chromax compared the ones without it. Before I forget, I actually removed the top exhaust fan before I put my cpu cooler as it won't be useful for me in this case but I put it together with the beige fan I replaced from cpu cooler as front intake fans which turns out to be perfect as I got to use all my fans thinking it would be not because I didn't get to plan on this part haha.

Thanks for reading guys! Sorry if my English is not good, it's my second language. I also included pictures(Night Sight Off and On) of what it looks like in the dark with the help of my Pixel 2 XL. Have a nice day!

nice build, but your monitor ruins the color theme you had going on. The Samsung - LC27JG52QQNXZA would have suited much better! BTW why don't you wanna overclock it?

I heard that this monitor has VA panel which they say has latency issues and I don't want that. For monitors, I would prefer IPS panels but I want to have that sweet 144hz for a monitor though it would be a pain in my *** as my wallet burns if I bought that kind of monitor. I'm still happy with my purchase with this TN monitor as the colors in this aren't that bad and I don't mind the bad viewing angles though I still wish this model has color black/white. I don't want to overclock this thing is because I'm still afraid of the dying RTX cards and I'm pretty contented with the frames I'm getting with it.

of the dying RTX cards

That happened to the first batches of RTX 2080Ti/2080, as far as I'm aware anything below those are completely safe and concurrently applies to the two above as Nvidia already switched from Micron's GDDR6 (faulty ones) to Samsung's GDDR6. Overheating DDR6 memory was what caused these cards to fail after short period of time.

Love how simple and compact it all is. You could use a better monitor though. I'd recommend saving up for the Alienware 1080p 240Hz.
